The package should still be in the package cache, so try cd /var/cache/apt/archives sudo dpkg -i libreadline6_6.2-9ubuntu1_i386.deb Alternatively you can download the package from http://packages.ubuntu.com/saucy/libreadline6

They way I was able to fix this problem was to purge Google Chrome and reinstall it from the deb file. To purge Google Chrome, type the following in a terminal window: sudo apt-get purge google-chrome-stable Then head over to the Google Chrome website and reinstall the browser. At the end of this, the launcher titled "New Tab - Google Chrome" should no ...

No, that is not possible. Other operating systems cannot read the custom icons set on a folder by Nautilus or other file managers in Ubuntu. Also, the metadata system is detached from nautilus itself, so the setting for the custom icon is separate from the folder itself.

In case anyone errs here as I did in search of a clue to tune down (or up, as it also happens) the size of the icons in the applications grid, here is a hint: http://askubuntu.com/a/450749/271033 As mentioned by Maksim, the changes in the gnome-shell.css file affect the size and padding of the container, but the size of the icons must be changed separately ...

Facing the same problem (wanted to decrease icons size on the launcher grid), editing the gnome-shell.css file worked fine to change the grid layout only (the grid elements were properly resized and redispatched, but the icons were not resized and stacked all over the place). In order to sort this out I also edited the ...

Try to open energy manager in gnome-control-center and set all the options. In my case, behavior for critically low battery was in blank. Setting it to "close" makes power indicator to appear in both the panel and the popup-menu. Good luck!

you can change them manually. the installed faenza icons are located in /usr/share/icons/Faenza from terminal: gedit /usr/share/applications/yourappname.desktop change the Icon=yourappname to Icon=/usr/share/icons/Faenza/yourappname and save!

If an app/config does not have a corresponding icon in the /usr/share/icons/Faenza* directories, it defaults to the originals which you are seeing. For example, the 'User Accounts' corresponds to config-users.svg and the 'Universal Access' corresponds to access.svg. It is likely that the icons for those bits are simply not there/were not created by the ...

As I see no obvious better solutions, it's possible that this will help: You could get rid of the tray alltogether! either disable it, if possible or replace the whole panel by some other that you can configure manually, just not adding a tray element. (I like xfce4-panel for this kind of things) If you would miss tray-based features now, most should ...

The easiest way to get back the shut down-button in a few seconds is this: a right mouse click the task bar at the bottom, 2 options will appear, >preferences<, and >about<. Choose >preferences<, then >applets<, then the red circled >shut down<-button, and confirm. That's it! Next time you reboot the original button or buttons will all be ...

I've experienced the same issue (Ubuntu 12.10 - Gnome desktop) after updating librsvg packages to 2.36.3-0ubuntu1.1. Downgrading them manually to 2.36.2-0ubuntu1 fixed the issue. You need to downgrade librsvg and librsvg-common. Hope this helps,

These are the steps: Right click on the panel. Select Panel -> Panel Preferences. Go to the Items tab and select the "Window Buttons" item. On the right side there should be a button to open the preferences for "Window Buttons", click it. I don't have Xfce in front of me, but the option should be something like "Show title". You just need to uncheck it ...

Unfortunately you can't drag an icon from the launcher onto the desktop. Instead search for the application in the application lens or the dash an drag the icon from there onto the desktop.

Apparently the icon is called battery-full-symbolic or battery-full-charge-symbolic. You could place the image in the path: ~/.icons/<THEME_NAME>/status/scalable/battery-full-symbolic.svg and/or ~/.icons/<THEME_NAME>/status/scalable/battery-full-charge-symbolic.svg To check for the actual paths used run: locate battery-full | grep ...

Just put the folders in ~/.icons and ~/.themes, which is the way to install them for your user specifically.

Looks like the theme was poorly built. You can always edit the theme elements and make them right according to gnome icons guidelines, but if you are not that patient then find some other theme and apply it. If you want to edit the then the icon themes are in /usr/share/icons/*your theme name*

what do you mean by graphics card is unknown. where did you check it? did you apply any incomplete custom theme? the generic answer would be that search in dash for details. and tell me what you see in graphics. then go to software and updates and look at the tab additional drivers. your graphics card must be shown there. install it. there is a second ...
