Unfortunately, mutter (the GNOME compositor) is not customizable at all. Why they thought this was a good idea is anyone's guess, as I find the typical compositor functionality as expressed in Compiz and KDE's compositor very useful, especially the desktop cube.

I have used the "autorun.inf" route on my windows machines but for some reason it does not work with Ubuntu 14.10. Also, if you actually name the chosen icon "autorun.ico" it lets you readily identify that it is in use by autorun so you do not delete it. On superuser a similar question was answered with: Another way to accomplish this is to use ...

The package is trying to overwrite files which are maintained by a different package. The dpkg error indicates that the insight package is trying to overwrite a file managed by gdbserver. You can't have two packages managing the same file in the packaging system's mind, so it errors. I would suggest that you investigate the PPA and reach out to the PPA ...

I mentioned it briefly in the gist, but I found in the XMonad docs, that the startup hook is executed automatically given, this config: , startupHook = execScriptHook "startup" This causes the shell script to be run automatically, which I found easier than monkeypatching the haskell hook. ...

I have struggled with this issue in a few cases, and found that calendars are usually not displaying the expected language in case of a mixed locale. I'm not 100% sure as regards Ubuntu GNOME, but assuming that you want to keep Polish formats for other aspects (number formats, currency symbol, etc.), you may want to add this line to your ~/.profile file: ...

Here is a very simple way to workaround the "xmonad fails to register" problem (addressed in other answers by using xmonad hooks or writing gnomeRegister2): in the xmonad.desktop file, replace Exec=xmonad with Exec=sh -c "xmonad &". This results in a very fast startup -- I got the idea here -- but it might break other things. The DesktopName=Unity part ...

For 14.10 there will never be the ability to have locally integrated menus always visible - at least, not without you hacking Unity code yourself. 15.04 included this ability to always switch on. 14.04 (since this being the LTS version), had this ability backported. Thus you have three choices: stick to 14.10 for the period of its support. Move on up ...

A GUI method is to open a document from an application such as LibreOffice. Do a Save As and when the window opens, drag the folder into the left column. I haven't a clue as to why the Preference gear was removed from Nautilus, but it should be restored IMHO.

Yes, it is. It's the same OS, but looking other.

After seven hours with little to no progress, I ended up re-installing Ubuntu GNOME, and restoring some files from a backup I had on a separate computer. This may not be the most helpful answer, but it will always be the most effective.

Solved! I thought that by adding a wallpaper (3840x2160) that wasn't the exact same size as my dual monitor set-up (3840x1080), Ubuntu would have adjusted it, but it didn't. So I search for 3840x1080 wallpapers, spanned it in the Tweak Tool panel and now it works. But still it confuses me that when I was in Activities or Show Application the wallpaper was ...

Having the same problem I ended up here. Though it was Super Left in the dconf-editor, my super key was not working. Inspired by adiyaarun1's comment, I opened up Tweak Tool—>Keyboard and Mouse.

This looks like a bug.
