I found a perfect theme that satisfies what I need - https://github.com/andreisergiu98/arc-flatabulous-theme There's also another one with not much differences on gnome-look called OSX-Arc, but the development of Arc-Flatabulous is more active than OSX-Arc

Just install GNOME Flashback session and use it. There is no need to uninstall Unity. For example GNOME Flashback in Ubuntu use unity-settings-deamon, so trying uninstall whole Unity might uninstall Flashback session too.

The answer was graciously provided in the comments. This only happens when Nautilus is already running. So the warning messages amount to nothing more than the obvious fact that nautilus can't be started because it's already been started. To quit nautilus with nautilus -q and then to start it with nautilus . will cleanly open the current directory folder ...

Via GUI Open gnome-terminal, go to Edit -> Profile preferences -> Colors -> Palette, change the Built-in scheme Via CLI In the below commands, replace $profile with your profile ID, which you can get from dconf list /org/gnome/terminal/legacy/profiles:/. If you have only one profile, you can create the variable: profile="$(dconf list /org/gnome/terminal/...

No. At least not yet. It's also unclear whether Snap can be used for an entire desktop or is more for running individual apps. Once someone does the work, you could run a snap for gedit 3.20 or cheese 3.20. On the other hand, it may not be feasible for a snap to include gnome-shell 3.20 or even the 3.20 version of the Settings app (gnome-control-center) ...

Try editing /etc/gdm3/greeter.dconf-defaults You can restart GDM by running sudo systemctl restart gdm3 Note that running that command will immediately end all of your graphical logged in sessions so save your work first. Source: /usr/share/doc/gdm3/README.Debian

Instead of using Ctrl + Alt + T as the shortcut, you can try redefine Alt + T as the shortcut in the Settings/Keyboard/Launchers settings. It seems a bug and may also because there is a conflict. This works for me at least.

In the Gnome Panel dialog box you have there, you need to enter the name of the application and the command that would be used to launch it from a terminal. For example, to add a launcher for GIMP: Name: GIMP Command: gimp since, to launch Gimp, you can just type gimp. The same is true for many applications. The comment is optional - text you enter would ...

You might want to take a look at https://wiki.debian.org/Gnome sudo apt-get install gnome-desktop-environment The above command should do the trick for you; it installs the package that is closest to the official GNOME environment. There is no need to download that .deb file seperately. In fact, you almost never want to do that.

I figured it out. Just for the record, in case anyone else has the same problem (using Diodon): Open the dconf Editor net |-- launchpad |-- diodon |-- clipboard makes sure "instant paste" is checked. It works fine now. Thanks for the help.

There is no way to add an authentication step to "switch to workspace". So, you cannot do what you asked. However, you could lock your screen, and let your guest use a Guest session - no password, only civilian access, vanishes at logout.

I had the same problem and I do not know why it stopped working. Check if you can install wayland session. sudo apt-get install gnome-session-wayland After that in login screen you can select "GNOME on wayland". It resolved my problem and at this moment I didn't see any difference in use.

I found the solution, and as weird as it is that it doesn't work out of the box, it's even weirder that it actually did work out of the box on my desktop computer: Start a terminal, and run sudo ubiquity. The important part here is the "sudo" - although Ubiquity generally seems to work just fine without it (partitioning and everything up to actually ...

What you call Gnome welcome icon is actually called plymouth. You can change its settings via update-alternatives command.

I was experiencing the same issue. What worked for me was: 1) Activities > Settings > Search 2) Turn off all the stuff that you don't need to search In my case, I was able to mitigate the problem quite a lot because I only use the search to launch applications quickly, hence I turned off most of the stuff. I imagine that searching for files, documents and ...

After some experimenting i've found the way to force light fonts in interface. You just remove all styles thicker than your desired. Now my interface is running in thin Roboto, looks stunning on hidpi display. Generally it works this way: Pick font (Roboto in my case) Download files from somewhere, fonts.google.com is a good place to start things off ...

No, there is not currently a way to do it more cleanly than that - unless you write some solution up yourself. Now, if you wanted to do that, likely what you'd want to do is have some scripts like: #!/bin/bash # sets a dark theme gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme "Some-Dark-Theme" gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme "...

I can get to the GUI bu making a new user with sudo adduser ... sudo usermod -aG sudo ... But that is really suboptimal, since the older user had a highly custom configuration, and it is a real pain in the you-know-what to reconfigure the new one from scratch now.

No, it will ship with GNOME 3.20 as GNOME 3.22 will be released after the necessary freeze for Ubuntu thus meaning that it will not be able to be shipped in as default. Although you may upgrade to it on an existing installation with (this will add the necessary semi-unofficial (though maintained by the official Ubuntu GNOME team so it is safe security wise) ...

Logging out/closing all my programs and logging back in applied the theming after all. The GTK API reference for GtkCssProvider (the unstable dev version - I cant find the equivalent sections for stable) explains/confirms how GTK will read CSS code for a theme on startup: An application can cause GTK+ to parse a specific CSS style sheet by calling ...

Nautilus uses the net usershare info command to get information about non-root user defined Samba shares. See the net manpage for more about this command. If that command fails Nautilus assumes there are no such shares and displays the error message it got just in case you want it. Creating the folder /var/lib/samba/usershares/ should prevent the message ...

Open Terminal and type this text for each icon you want visible on the desktop, if you're using gnome. For home folder: gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.desktop home-icon-visible true For computer icon: gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.desktop computer-icon-visible true For volume icons: gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.desktop volumes-visible true

Only way you can change window themes is by copying your theme to either Ambiance or Adwaita folder. Gnome developers have become very ignorant to user's and themes, due to their inability to fix underlying problems with their desktop. GTK+ will refuse to use the entire theme if it does not completely comply with what Gnome Developers want on our desktops. ...

X server has multiple clipboards. The one with Ctrl + C is referred to as clipboard, the one where you highlight something is called primary. xclip allows pasting output of either .

It is simple, but you need to install the tool xsel first: sudo apt-get install xsel TL;DR: Here are the commands you probably want to use for your shortcuts in the end. I am using the versions with printf everywhere for uniformity and easier customization, even if a simpler variant would have been enough: Append selection to end of clipboard directly:...

Alt+Ctl+F1 is a virtual terminal, VT1. Usually you would go back to your previous X11 session by typing Alt+Ctl+F7 or Alt+Ctl+F8 I have never had things running in the X11 display change or fail simply because I went to VT1 and back again. But if you go to VT1, and then you are provoking some kind of error that triggers the login to re-appear,...

The solution is to install MATE: apt-get install ubuntu-mate-desktop apt-get install mate (note that both commands are essential) then select MATE in the Ubuntu icon on the upper-right corner of the panel at the login screen.

You can use the Gnome Classic that is built into the Gnome DE. There is no Ubuntu Logo because you are using GDM instead of LightDM. Just under where you enter your password is a small gear logo. Clicking on that will give you the option to log into Gnome Classic. It runs on top of your existing Gnome 3 install but includes plugins to make it behave like ...
