In Ubuntu 14.04, the MATE desktop environment is available for the first time in the Ubuntu Software Center. MATE is a lightweight desktop environment that uses the traditional panel desktop layout used in pre-Unity Ubuntu. The MATE desktop environment can be configured to have either one or two panels. For more information about the MATE desktop ...

Under bash, use the disown command to fix an existing process. To get the list of background processes attached to the current shell, use the jobs command. Then to disown the desired process, use disown % <job number>. Below is an example of how to disown xload. jobs [1]+ Stopped man man [2]- Running xload & ...

Well, in these cases I always recommend Xfce. Many users don't realize that Xfce is flexible enough to allow them to easily emulate the "Gnome Classic" look&feel of the desktop interface (unlike LXDE, for example), by setting up the panels as in the old days. And they can also run all individual Gnome programs (like Nautilus, Evince, etc.) within Xfce. ...

You can use Youtube-dlG, a multi-platform GUI for youtube-dl. The GUI lets you download multiple videos at once, can automatically convert downloaded videos to audio, lets you select the video quality and more. To install it in Ubuntu, you can use the main WebUpd8 PPA: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get ...

I'm presuming you want to create your own GUI I recommend to use opengl if you want to have portable code between platforms. you need to write draw functions that will draw the GUI element(such as text input fields/buttons...) and write event function that goes with them(on mouse click,on focus..).

Not really, no. I am not sure about the details but I imagine that the Alt+F2 is simply passing the commands you run to a non-interactive, non-login shell. This type of shell will not have access to aliases, as explained in man bash: When bash is started non-interactively, to run a shell script, for example, it looks for the variable BASH_ENV in ...

You can use disown command to detach background processes from the terminal. If you have only one running background job, you can simply use disown and the owner of this background process will no longer be the terminal, so it will keep running even after the terminal is closed.

You can: Communicate using D-Bus which is very popular this days. Just change a configuration file and signal your daemon to reload it (SIGUSR1, SIGUSR2 and SIGHUP have exactly this purpose). Write your own protocol with something like Thrift or Protocol Buffers. Use a low level IPC mechanism. In your place I would go with D-Bus

Which programming language is used. Whatever language you prefer. Most FOSS projects are written using C, C++, Java and/or Python so to understand the current desktops you will need to be able to understand all of these (plus you need to understand the logical reasoning). Where is the source of that. You can find the desktops on launchpad: Unity, ...

Note: after rereading your question and thinking about it longer, I think the answer by terdon is probably the one you want, not this one; this one is too general, and takes more typing. If I understand correctly, it seems like you might want to append --display=D1 to any program you run from Alt-F2; is this correct? After some discussion, probably not, ...

This looks like a bug in clementine or at least in the version that comes packaged with Ubuntu. I use it on my Debian and have not seen this before but I installed it today on a VM running Ubuntu and it appeared in French. I live in France but have absolutely nothing set to French on my system, much less the VM. So, it looks like Clementine is assuming the ...

I agree with terdon that the application is buggy, but it does check the locale, it's just that it checks the wrong locale category: LC_NUMERIC. Now, the solution suggested by terdon is reasonably the best. Just wanted to show a way to workaround the bug: $ cat ~/bin/clementine #!/bin/sh export LC_NUMERIC=$( printenv LANG ) exec /usr/bin/clementine "$@" ...

By definition, a graphical user interface (GUI) is used by a shell.[1] Moreover, Unity, the default user interface in Ubuntu, is a shell interface for the GNOME desktop environment.[2] References: Shell (computing) Unity (user interface)
