For me your 2nd method works great with sudo apt-get install gnome-shell But I also made a reboot after the dist upgrade. Try it! sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-staging sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo reboot sudo apt-get install gnome-shell

I have found the same problem with the new Unity desktop. I think it is a limitation of the Unity that it can't handle any arrangement of monitors where the launcher isn't placed on the highest one. A compromise for the arrangement you have shown is to place the launcher on the middle or right-most monitor. Whilst this isn't quite as intuitive as placement ...

Running a sudo apt-get upgrade fixed my problem

I hope the dependencies didn't change from a 14.04.1 Live system (where I tested this) and your 15.04. As I found out, no other packages were removed in purging those two. You can verify this from your APT log: cat /var/log/apt/history.log For me this looks like: Start Date: 2015-07-04 10:19:36 Commandline: apt-get purge network-manager ...

just update your system by using sudo apt-get update Then go to system settings and go to Software & Updates and then go to Additional drivers tab, then choose correct drivers for your graphics. It will fix your problem

This can be fixed by installing packages back sudo apt-get install network-manager-gnome network-manager This probably will not work without internet connection. If you are new to Ubuntu, it will be not easy for you to setup networking manually. I suggest re-installing the system and be more careful in the future with running commands in terminal that ...

I tried all the possible solutions mentioned in comment area and other answers. Unfortunately none of them work. Solution that worked for me was format and re-install. I had to format my laptop before re-installing. Because re-installing without format was not working. I mean computer starts normally but there were several bugs with WiFi, Bluetooth, USB, ...

California 0.4 requires GTK+ 3.12 or higher. Trusty has GTK+3.10. So you can not install that version in trusty. To install you must upgrade it to vivid. Daily build for 14.04 is not available because of that. And No, there is no easy to install for 14.04 because higher version california uses some feature which is only available in GTK+ library > =3.12. ...

Have you tryed enter tty pres ctrl + alt +f6, and type this in the tty: sudo apt-get install LXDE and then type this in startx and then push start button left corner and the preferencs and the upper gfx settings adm and set all to default, and reboot and it might work fine this way.

This sounds like a messed up installation that is hard to fix. Easier would be to install again with a live-usb/cd install. You can use a tool like Universal USB Installer to create a bootable USB stick or burn the image to a CD. wubi doesn't work very well in some cases so starting the live system and install will be much easier.

All sorts of other options apart from q. Open another terminal and kill it from there. Kill it from the System Monitor task list. Close the terminal window. These assume a desktop environment. Also for servers... Ctrl-Alt-F1 (or F6/F7) and log in again to kill. Connect again (Telnet/SSH) and kill. And finally - it is open source, patch it.

If you are using gnome-terminal, yes, you can disable that the F10 key opens the menu: Open gnome-terminal's menu with F10 or with the mouse, select Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts, then uncheck "Enable the menu shortcut key (F10 by default)".

TL;DR The standard way to quit htop is F10 or q. Therefore if you can't use F10, use q (lowercase).

You always can have the interupt signal keys Ctrl+c. Basically Ctrl+c sends the SIGINT (interrupt) signal, ; by default, this causes the process to terminate. Just like top, htop can be quit by pressing Q. SIGINT The SIGINT signal is sent to a process by its controlling terminal when a user wishes to interrupt the process. This is typically ...

There appears to be other people having this issue as well. A bug report was also made on this. It appears to be a bug with version 3.16. A temporary fix would be to use LightDM instead, so (in a VT, eg Ctrl+Alt+F1: sudo apt-get install lightdm sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm Press enter to get past the "Configuring lightdm" screen, and then navigate to ...

Install xsel either through the above link or through the terminal: sudo apt-get install xsel To copy the output of a command use: *command* | xsel -ib An example: $ drush uli | xsel -ib You can make it simpler by editing (create it if you don't already have it with touch ~/.bash_aliases) your ~/.bash_aliases file. Add this line to it: alias clipboard ...

You can use xsel in just that way: xsel -i -b >/dev/null Option -i (--input) makes it read input from standard input Option -b (--clipboard) makes it use the clipboard buffer instead the selection or one of the less commonly further buffers. >/dev/null is hiding some annoying error message - not shure that can occur with these options set. So, ...

Faced similar issue of login failure but i've managed to fix it by cross-grading from Ubuntu to Ubuntu Gnome. Not sure why, but both Unity and Gnome desktops can't coexists and you'll need to purge Unity desktop in order to fix that issue. This is how I got it to work. YMMV. Install Gnome 3.14 desktop and purge Unity desktop. Make sure you can login through ...

For me, disabling Ctrl+Q shortcut system-wide is not the perfect solution, because it prevents applications other than Firefox, Chrome etc. to be notified when you use that shortcut - for example, IntelliJ IDEA uses Ctrl+Q as a default binding to show quick documentation pop-up. If you are looking for a Firefox-only solution, I highly recommend Disable ...

Thanks for your answer. I'm a Windows user. Some months ago I installed in a costumer company, owncloud. But now, there is no more support for windows environment. For this reason we decided to install a server with linux. Do you mean it's not necessary to install the server version, with desktop is enough for me. Sure my life would be easier

If you want to have a complete GNOME Shell desktop, you can use the package ubuntu-gnome-desktop: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-gnome-desktop But then I ask myself the question why you chose the server image. If you want to use a graphical interface, why don't you use a desktop image instead. There even is one that features the GNOME Shell as its default ...

You can not use two network interfaces at the same time without special routing setup, since the system will not know were to send packets to reach to the Internet.

In Kubuntu 15.04, after replacing cedillas for the /usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/Compose as described by others above, only qt-based apps were OK. After that, I installed ibus-gtk and ibus-gtk3 and it fixed my problem to firefox and other gtk-based apps as well.

The problem was that gtk (or some element of gtk) had to be reinstalled. Something either went out of date or became corrupted with the upgrade.

Simple: move the left hand monitor (in software) to the top of the screen. That will force the icons back down onto it.

This is doable with an extension called multi-monitors-add-on.

It seems the key is to use update-alternative and define the session. running update-alternatives --config x-session-manager will list all of the sessions x-session-manager knows about and will allow you to choose which one to use. in my case I set the session using this command. update-alternatives --set x-session-manager ...

OK, it's a bug. Probably the nautilus issue is launched before the shell that sets up the SSH* variable.

There isn't any way to hide an user in GDM preferences. To hide the user, I changed its PID to a number lower than 1000, then I rebooted the computer. Now the user is invisible.
