It is probably caused by system default dpi scaling as i recently faced the same problem with sublime text 3. You should use default dpi that is '1'. if you change settings certain apps behave erraticly as they are made for certain resolutions and thus making a fuss in rendering process of gui. To correct this just go to System > Settings > Displays > ...

I run into the same problem this morning. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on a DELL Latitude E5450 and could fix the problem as follows: Get into GRUB menu while holding ESC key on startup. When GRUB menu appears, I've pressed "e" to change the boot options. I added "nosetmode" as described here: How do I set 'nomodeset' after I've already installed Ubuntu? ...

Instead, you should handle permissions properly. Run a file manager as root You can start Nautilus with sudo privileges in the usual way: sudo nautilus Then you can copy the files that ...

Yes, you'll be able to install/remove snaps via Ubuntu Software. That work is in progress, and doesn't seem to have been released to Xenial just yet. I don't know if Ubuntu Software will indicate if it's a snap or a deb, though.

The big GUI toolkits on Linux are Qt as used by e.g. KDE and GTK as used by e.g. GNOME. Both can be used with desktops that are based on the other one but the programs will feel less good integrated and there may be some glitches when using them. In addition to this most desktop environments provide some own APIs which give you enhanced functionality and ...

Having windows buttons on the left side is not really unusual: Apple Macintosh MS Windows 1.0 Atari TOS Apple OSX Coming from an Atari ST I immediately felt at home with Ubuntu's windows buttons on the left. For me it was and still is the right place. I never felt comfortable with right sided Windows' buttons. So the question should rather be why ...

You can try this, this is somewhat cleaner and more robust: it doesn't involve customising Ubuntu's locale files. In Ubuntu, you can assign locale components by editing the file /etc/default/locale. LANG="en_US.UTF-8" LC_TIME="en_GB.UTF-8" LC_PAPER="en_GB.UTF-8" LC_MEASUREMENT="en_GB.UTF-8" Which means: I want software messages in American, but time, ...

Two important notes to the advice given by @HelpNeeder: there should be a quote around the code the executable, and the image for the default icon for Xampp icon is accessible as /opt/lampp/htdocs/dashboard/images/xampp-logo.svg. Copy it into folder /usr/share/icons/Humanity/devices/24/ Thus, the final advice is to open a new terminal, run sudo gedit ...

Not sure where its located in 14.04 but if you go to Settings - Users and Groups then select the user that can login without a password and where it says Password click Change.

I have a UX303UA, which has a FocalTech touchpad, rather than the Elan your Zenbook has. I solved this problem by adding a conf file to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d called 52-focaltech.conf. You would probably want to call yours 52-elan.conf or such. The 52 at the start is important because that way it runs after the system-supplied conf files for the ...

Have a look at SikuliX Sikuli automates anything you see on the screen. It uses image recognition to identify and control GUI components. It is useful when there is no easy access to a GUI's internal or source code. see also this SO discussion.

Ubuntu on Windows does not support the X11 window system, which is needed for graphical applications in Linux. People have managed to use Xming to get things to work (with Cygwin's X suggested as an alternative), but it's not very stable. YMMV. It's not official, and if anything breaks, don't ask here.
