Yes, there is GUI for packaging. You can find some in this old answer: Graphical tool for creating Deb packages But to upload to Launchpad, no. Anyway, it's easy and you can do with a simple command. The only caveat: first time only, you need to create SSH keys, register at Launchpad, etc: http://packaging.ubuntu.com/html/getting-set-up.html Then, after ...

Besides Seahorse, which is only the key manager, you need a package called seahorse-nautilus to be able to encrypt/decrypt files with Nautilus. It adds a menu item to the right-click context menu that allows you to encrypt a file directly from the file manager. Note: This is the package name in Ubuntu 14.04. Other versions may have a different package ...

Paul was mostly right. This expanded solution works as of Ubuntu 14.04.1 with GNOME Terminal 3.6.2. For all versions: Add the following code to ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css: VteTerminal, TerminalScreen { padding: 10px 10px 10px 10px; -VteTerminal-inner-border: 10px 10px 10px 10px; } Kill all instances of gnome-terminal: $ killall gnome-terminal ...

You can't get rid of them easily, since all the English variants are shipped in the same set of language packs in Ubuntu. My advice would be to select en_US and leave it at that. The other installed English variants do no harm, do they?

Yes and no. Setting aside TTY/PTS parts of the conversation... Yes you can run more then one Xorg instance. X :1 X :2 X :3 would start 3 new Xorg sessions on display ports 1,2, and 3 You can run damn near any command by setting the DISPLAY variable. so DISPLAY=:1 xterm would start xterm on display port 1 Your "default" desktop is display port 0 (:0) ...

Yes you may start a new GUI in a different TTY. From the default Ubuntu TTY (number 7), switch to another TTY (number 3 in this example) by pressing: Ctrl+Alt+F3 Provide your username and password and then start a new X session, using the same number of the present TTY: startx -- :3

My idea was to find some hint in the file listing of the packages or in gconf, but I had no luck. Someone else knew the answer though. Superuser: Change default compression levels for file-roller? Either: $ dconf write /org/gnome/file-roller/general/compression-level "'maximum'" Or: $ dconf-editor Select org in the left-hand pane. ...

Use Language Support when logged in as the admin user. Make sure all languages you need are installed, select English and apply system wide. Then, when logged in as the standard user, use Language Support to switch to the desired language.

If the translation into a language is not complete, especially if it's not complete with respect to the GUIs of the most important applications, selecting that language as the display language will result in a mix of the language in question and English. Translations are mostly done by volunteers, and if you have an interest in improving the situation for ...

This link tells you how to boot Ubuntu in recovery mode (provided you're using the Grub bootloader): https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecoveryMode If that doesn't work then you can always create a live CD/USB from another machine and boot up with that to recover your system. If you don't know how to do that I can post links to some useful resources.

That's NVidia for you: instead of being compatible with VESA modes, they're only VGA (and maybe SVGA) compatible, which gives you ugly boot and shut-down screens. See also: Linus Torvalds on NVidia Press c on grub to get in the console and then enter videoinfo. Note down the highest resolution and color depth available. E.g 1920x1080x32. Load ubuntu and ...

Boot the computer and open one of the tty consoles with ctrl + alt + f1. This allows you to directly access the computer's terminal. Type your username and password to login, then run the command sudo apt-get install compiz, and enter your password when prompted. Then reboot the computer when done with sudo reboot. Your GUI should then be functional again.

Ubuntu theme doesn't work well with headerbars, so it looks weird. Try a different theme, like Adwaita or elementary. The second screenshot shows an old version of Audience; at the time it looked like this in Ubuntu.

Unlike Windows which has different kernels for the server and the workstation, Ubuntu has only one kernel... :-) So you shouldn't be trying to install a bare-bones server and then add a GUI, but just install the desktop version and then add all the server components you need. (Mysql, vsftpd, Apache, ...) Then install SSH and VNC as mentioned by SPBRN A ...

You need VNC for this, over SSH. So you need to install openssh-server and vnc-server. You don't tell us what version of Ubuntu it is, so I guess 14.04 LTS, so google if you have another version. Install Open SSH server How To Install VNC Server On Ubuntu 14.04

Nope. Only users have to go through a shell to communicate with the Kernel. Applications use APIs. For example, if I want to delete a file, I have to use one shell or the other, and then an application to delete the file: With a Command-Line Interface (CLI) shell, such as bash, I can use the rm command to delete the file. With a GUI shell (like Unity, or ...
