The bug (related to #662099) is still present with gedit 3.14.0. It is probably a problem with ibus and newer gnome versions. Just remove ibus sudo apt-get remove ibus and kill ibus pkill -o ibus-daemon

gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub is indeed the correct answer to your question, however, if you're brand new to Ubuntu, I'd advise you to install Grub Customiser. Grub Customiser allows you to change a ton of parameters in grub without the risk of you making a fatal mistake. ;-) (Fatal to Ubuntu, not to you!) In a terminal type: sudo add-apt-repository ...

You can use a function instead. A function that check the write permission. If write permission is granted don't use gksu. function gedit(){ [ -w "$1" ] && gedit "$1" || gksu gedit "$1"; } You can add that in your .bashrc instead of the alias.

It's not a nemo vs nautilus issue. It's a GTK+2 vs GTK+3 issue. Apps written for GTK+2 will use the familiar-looking Humanity-themed file selection dialog, while apps written for GTK+3 will use the alien, hollow-looking default theme for GTK+3. Unfortunately, the only way to get a consistent UX is to use all GTK+2 apps, or switch to a Qt-based DE like LXQT ...

Looks like it isn't possible: https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11196 and https://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?id=9129 It should be said that using gedit in Xubuntu is not an issue. Both use gtk, which makes gedit a native application to Xubuntu, in a sense. So forget about trying to get mousepad to work like gedit. Just keep using gedit!

maybe you can try XFCE4 desktop (Xubuntu). it's lightweight, uses mousepad, and Thunar file manager which is the best file manage I've used so far. you can install the Xubuntu desktop from software center.

This may be related to a Compiz bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/compiz/+bug/1288747 What fixed this issue for me was going back to Nvidia driver 331.38 by doing this: (Ubuntu 14.04 x64) Remove Nvidia driver: Ctrl-Alt-F1 sudo service lightdm stop sudo sh NVIDIA*.run --uninstall Remove any Noveau files (blacklist) located in /etc/modprobe.d sudo reboot ...
