for me xprop|grep WM_CLASS gave WM_CLASS(STRING) = "sun-awt-X11-XFramePeer", "jetbrains-pycharm-ce" (I was having this issue with pycharm for python) It was the sun-awt-X11-XFramePeer that I needed as the string in my .desktop file (without quotes) - Thanks!

Does your guest session work? If so, your problem is a conflict with the old desktop configuration files. A fresh start should fix things. Try backing up all the files starting with a dot (e.g. .Xauthority) and deleting them (directories too), from a virtual terminal (Ctrl-alt-F1). Then try the graphical login (Alt F7) (or reboot). New "dot" files will ...

Unlike what you would think, in a .desktop file, a space: should not be escaped in the icon path, so: Icon=/home/aortiz49/Application Data/Sublime_Text_2/Icon/256x256/sublime_text.png is ok, but a space: should be escaped in the Exec= line, so: Exec=/home/aortiz49/Application Data/Sublime_Text_2/sublime_text is incorrect. It should be: ...

but these paths don't have spaces. The path have a space between Application and Data. Therefore you need the double quotes or a backslash \: Exec=/"home/aortiz49/Application Data/Sublime_Text_2/sublime_text" or Exec=/home/aortiz49/Application\ Data/Sublime_Text_2/sublime_text And for Icon: Icon=/home/aortiz49/"Application ...

Now I know why this weird thing happens. Coz u have different kernel. When I initially install Gnome14.10, it uses kernel version 3.16.0-23-generic and gnome version 3.12, then I upgrade to kernel 3.16.0-29-generic and gnome 3.14.

I think this is an already reported bug. A workaround is to create a directory named trash: that points to .local/share/Trash in your /home. So, while you are in /home, run: ln -s /home/<user-name>/.local/share/Trash/ ~/trash: by replacing <user-name>with your actual username.

First, the icon Just made you one. CC SA 3.0. Adapted from aleixoteixeira's design. Get the SVG here - ubuntu will scale it and it will never be blury because it's an SVG file. What to do with it now? I save all my icons in either /usr/share/icons/ or /usr/share/icons/current_pack. It makes no difference, and I don't know what is better practise. png ...
