I just faced the same issue. The window is non-resizable and its size does not depend on the resolution. While it is not possible to use control + scroll wheel or other usual key combinations to change the font size and make the login screen small enough to fit, you can use the tab key to select the "Okay" button located underneath the semi-transparent ...

sudo apt-get install gdm sudo apt-get install ubuntu-gnome-desktop And when PC asks which display to use, select "gdm". This should do the trick. This does not install GNOME on your desktop-it gives you the full Ubuntu GNOME Experience without installing a fresh OS.

I've experienced the same issue (Ubuntu 12.10 - Gnome desktop) after updating librsvg packages to 2.36.3-0ubuntu1.1. Downgrading them manually to 2.36.2-0ubuntu1 fixed the issue. You need to downgrade librsvg and librsvg-common. Hope this helps,

When you have a network drive mounted to your computer, it means it has to update the status every time you open nautilus. Because the drive will appear in the left pane where your bookmarks are. My suggestion will be to unmount the drive when not used, in order to prevent the time it takes to load it every time nautilus is open, OR you could let a window ...

Apologies, I am not a Fluxbox guru. If I were in your situation though, I would read these links and re-approach the issue: Link 1, Link 2. Link 1 gives the command to "Restart the Xsession": sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart But, logging out does the same (which you've tried). If you can install the software, then you can also uninstall it, possibly like ...

This is explained in man vim: Vim behaves differently, depending on the name of the command (the executable may still be the same file). vim: The "normal" way, everything is default. ex: Start in Ex mode.

This behaviour was changed from remembering the view settings on a folder-by-folder basis to remembering the view settings on a window-by-window basis.

Apparently, dconf misbehaves on show-desktop-icons and also disables the background image. Hence one has to set the flag show-desktop-icons back to true. This brings back the desktop item, which one can correctly (i.e. not messing with the background image) disable with gnome-tweak-tool, section "Desktop".

It's just because you're not running GNOME Shell, I guess that you're running Ubuntu Unity, not the GNOME variant. To record screencast with sound, just install recordMyDesktop: https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/gtk-recordmydesktop/

Looks like the theme was poorly built. You can always edit the theme elements and make them right according to gnome icons guidelines, but if you are not that patient then find some other theme and apply it. If you want to edit the then the icon themes are in /usr/share/icons/*your theme name*

Gnome-software isn't available in the Ubuntu software center. Most of the other gnome core apps, however, are available and are quite beautiful/functional. Since most of them are so new, it's just taking a while to filter in. However, they're definitely worth taking a look at what you can find.

If you like pure GNOME, why not directly install Ubuntu GNOME? Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 has being granted LTS status and has an active mailing list for you to interact with other users and developers.

Yes, gnome-session-fallback is still present in the official repositories. gnome-session-fallback is now a meta package that installs gnome-session-flashback, which provides the same functionality. It should work as you expect.

You will probably have set some incompatible setting combination(s). Gnome Tweak Tool can be used on Ubuntu, but is not exclusively for Ubuntu + Unity. That is why there is no "set to default" option, like you would expect from an application, dedicated to Ubuntu only. Removing the application would not undo the setting changes you made with it. Since you ...
