Try updating your NVIDIA graphics drivers by first running: sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade And then running: sudo apt install nvidia-current && sudo apt install nvidia-current-updates According to Blenders website, you only need shader model 2.0 or above to support Cycles, and according to Nvidia, your card supports model 3.0, so ...

GPU rendering with Cycles is not enabled by default with Blender. Select Cycles as your rendering engine at the top of your scene, as the default Blender Internal renderer cannot use the GPU. To enable GPU rendering, go into the User Preferences, and under the System tab, select the Compute Device(s) to use. Next, for each scene, you can configure to use ...

I just happen to have the same problem with 16.04 and here is what it fixed it for me. Go to the "burger menu" on the right end of the control bar. Then select "additional settings" and allow the programs to "slip" under the control bar. I'm not sure with the exact wording since I'm using the German localization.

Easy. Relaunch GNOME Control Center and turn off files. If you were using a different desktop environment to GNOME, I recommend uninstalling gnome-control-center and online-accounts.

This button is added by "Show Applications" extension, isn't it? This extension relies on view-grid-symbolic.svg icon, located in /usr/share/icons/gnome/scalable/actions folder of the Gnome icon theme.

If I restart the shell the icons come back, to do so: press alt + f2 type "r" without quotes hit enter This is not a solution but a quick workaround.

There should be these shortcuts to minimize a Window: Ctrl+Alt+NUMpad 0 to minimize/restore the current window Ctrl+Super+↓ to minimize/restore the current window (needs to be pressed twice if the current window is maximized) or Ctrl+Super+KeyPad 0 to minimize the current window (called Hide Window) in the shortcut configuration panel — notice that ...

Since you don't know exactly where the problem is, create a folder at your desktop (or documents) and move there all hidden files and folders from your home folder (every single one to be sure, even the ~/.local folder) and then reboot (those which are need will be recreated on reboot with default configurations, so if you need for example the chromium ...

There does not appear to be a solution to this that will work exactly the way you would like, but I can suggest a couple of workarounds to make working in Anthy more productive. First, the behavior that you are seeing is really by design. While you are typing kana (of either sort), you are in pre-edit mode, which is a form of highlighting the text. When you ...

Before GNOME 3.10, the user menu in the top right of the screen showed the user name in the top bar by default. There was a privacy setting to turn that feature off. When the user menu was redesigned in GNOME 3.10, the user name was hidden by default from the top bar. I don't think that setting is user for anything now and it was removed from the ...

GNOME stores its settings in the dconf binary database which can also be viewed or changed with the gsettings command line tool or the dconf-editor app. The database is stored in ~/.config/dconf/user . You can copy that file to another computer to copy all of your GNOME settings including your keyboard shortcuts. That folder is hidden by default. Use the ...

Ubuntu uses tested version of Gnome thats older. If you wish to use latest, install Ubuntu Gnome and then add Gnome PPA but get ready for some issues. I use Arch with Gnome 3.2, so far its been OK but issues crop up from time to time.

Have you tried sudo apt-get install, followed by its package name? In this case it's sudo apt-get install gnome-system-monitor.

IF you go into the keyboard settings you should be able to rearrange them.. As well as that have you put a lil time into finding a possible external application that lets you use them in Gnome 3 for those alt and super keys? Sorry if this didn't help you much.

Solved it by accident. After being frustrated with high cpu usage and overheating, I downgraded my Ubuntu Gnome installation from 16.04 to 14.04. It seems the style that I wanted and preferred is the old style, and the new ones are the small regular icons. I expected the style I was looking for to be a newer one since it seems more modern and looks much ...

Though in previous versions doing as the other answers said would have worked (going View > Scrollbars > Vertical Scroll bar), in the version in Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 with GNOME 3.20 there is a bug meaning that whatever one does the scroll bars do not show.

I have the same problem. "sudo pm-suspend" works fine but when closing the lid or selecting "power->suspend" the system freezes at resume.

Based on https://github.com/horst3180/arc-theme#troubleshooting and looking through the issues at the GitHub repo, manual installation of the theme using the instructions at https://github.com/horst3180/arc-theme#manual-installation will fix the theme.

The themes are now in binary files gresource, you would need to either unpack the gresource file, make your change and put it back together. mkdir ~/shell-theme and create extractgst.sh inside this directory and paste the following to that file. #! /bin/sh workdir=${HOME}/shell-theme gst=/usr/share/gnome-shell/gnome-shell-theme.gresource mkdir theme for ...

Measuring speed between two environments is very subjective, and not something that can really be accurately and definitively "measured". It depends on the machine entirely. Yes, XFCE is supposed to average faster than GNOME, but it really does depend on the machine. My machine is System76's Serval WS. It has a M.2 drive, Nvidia 6 GB GeForce GTX 970M, 3.6 ...

With your computer you won't notice much difference. 5th generation i5's and a an SDD are a very good combination. The biggest difference you will see between xfce and gnome is in the amount of memory usage it takes. So if you are running a machine with only 1GB of ram then you will notice a significant difference.

I was having problems with "click focus" as well, mainly with Chrome (not using system title bar) and Guake and what did the trick for me was setting from dconf-editor, org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences values as follows: auto-rise: on focus-mode: click focus-new-windows: strict (*) mouse-button-modifier: default (*) It seems to affect the focus behaviour ...

In Unity tweak tool (that can be installed by sudo apt-get install unity-tweak-tool or sudo apt install unity-tweak-tool in 16.04) go to Switcher, disable everything and see if it works.

You can use GSettings to change theme: gsettings set org.gnome.metacity theme THEME_NAME Above will work with Metacity 3.16.x and 3.18.x, but starting with 3.20 Metacity by default will use GTK+ theme. To use Metacity themes you will need to change two settings: - gsettings set org.gnome.metacity.theme type metacity - gsettings set org.gnome.metacity.theme ...

Ugly fix: remove gnome-keyring execute privilege. chmod -x /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon After this, gnome-keyring-daemon will not make any Chrome issue anymore, but it will not save any system password (google chrome password will be saved and you can used saved one too).
