Ok, so I found the problem. My keyboard is a Corsair K95, so I use the ckb drivers (Found here: https://github.com/ccMSC/ckb). For some weird reason the profile I was using did not detect the windows key. Changed the profile and the problem was resolved.

All your options to mount partitions are covered in this page. Ensure you use the UUID for your drive, as directed in the linked page. Edit: As noted by another member, do not mount your Windows partition that has your OS on it as RW, make sure it's Read-Only! Other partitions that are only used as storage can be Read/Write. I had originally assumed you ...

If anyone ends up here looking for a solution, the problem is most likely a bug that arose in Evolution 3.5 when TNEF handling passed from a plugin to a module. It was fixed in Evolution 3.12.9+ and 3.13.8+, so you will need to use a distribution that offers one of them or above, which is the case of Ubuntu GNOME 15.04 and above (but 16.04 is recommended, ...

If you're running a PC selecting F12 during bootup will take you to the boot options section. If you go to boot-order, or something like that, and push the GRUB boot manager to the highest priority. It should boot to GRUB first after that. If you're running a Mac, it could be the same, but I've never used OSX so I don't actually know.

This error indicates that there is something wrong with the ELF, that is to say the header of the /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libnm-gtk.so.0 binary file you have installed one possible reason for this could be that the file is corrupt.

By using gconf-editor and dconf-editor. Open both editors and manually update all settings you want. Since you say that you want migrate only some settings this might be your only option. By writing small application / script that reads settings from gconf and then sets them in dconf.

No, there is no fast way to do this. After changing to dark or light theme applications must be restarted which is probably not what you want. Otherwise corntab might help.

I also encountered this problem, here's how I fixed it. The basis of the problem Put simply, the file layout in Ubuntu 16 changes the location of plymouth themes from /lib/plymouth/themes to /usr/share/plymouth/themes and so all of the theme install scripts that assumed the previous layout now install to the wrong location. Thus, when update-initramfs ...

There is no way to get Unity to show programs in categories. If you have only problems putting many programs into the left bar, you can shrink the buttons there (using Unity Tweak Tool).

I’m not 100% convinced this is a 16.04 issue as this has recently resurfaced for me on 14.04.4. For me sudo nmcli nm sleep false wakes up network manager. I know I’ve had this problem before as I had a script with the above command, but I can’t remember if I found a solution or it was just fixed somewhere along the way.

I was using bash.bashrc because I wanted the setup process to be system wide, so putting it in ~/.profile, as Anthony suggested, was not the best solution for me. Additionally the setup script was located on an NFS, so I made symbolic link in /etc/profile.d that pointed to the location of the setup script on the NFS. Works great now!

execp command differs from $exec in that it parses the output of the command, so you can insert things like ${color red}hi!${color} in your script and have it correctly parsed by Conky. Caveats: Conky parses and evaluates the output of $execp every time Conky loops, and then destroys all the objects. If you try to use anything like $execi within an $execp ...

You should set the environment variables in your ~/.profile. This file is sourced by display managers such as LightDM which start the X server and the rest of the graphical system.

There is no config file. The gnome-terminal manages all its settings through dconf (or gconf in old Ubuntu releases) which is comparable to the Windows registry. It's a binary file optimized for quickly reading its values, you can not edit or view it manually like a text document. If your dconf-editor or whatever tool you're trying to use is not working, ...

You could try making google applications the default in the system. But I think what you are looking for is something along the lines of integration. The app I think you are looking for is Calendar-Indicator Hope this helps :)

gnome-terminal does not let you redefine the escape sequences, so no, there's nothing you could do there. In other terminal emulators this might be possible, however, you'd have to create your own escape sequences and configure both your terminal emulator and your emacs accordingly, and it won't be compatible with anyone else's setup.
