2016-02 I also had my icons disappear. Fixed it by going to "System Settings -> Appearance" and selecting a theme, the setting was blank.

I forget which user nautilus (the file browser) runs as, but it is not root, and since (most) everything under /usr is owned by root (use ls -l on files/directories in question), the file browser won't be able to display the contents.

Following up KhaosDvorak: The following three commands fixes the problem without installing additional software. It worked great for me on RHEL 7.2 at least: dconf write /org/gnome/nautilus/icon-view/thumbnail-size 128 nautilus -q rm -r ~/.cache/thumbnails/ (This is not written as a comment to KhaosDvorak since I cannot comment due to just having signed ...

To find all the *.desktop files in your system do: sudo find / -type f -iname *.desktop Common locations: /usr/share/applications ~/.local/share/applications ~/.gnome/apps But in your case you are not looking for *.desktop files as because these files exist only for installed applications not for system drives and system partitions. What you are ...

You are right that it uses a simple rectangle containing all monitors. That is the best solution currently available for Linux, but it introduces multiple bugs (across the board, not just in the window manager) whenever your arrangement does not fill up the desktop with actual screen space. I have used multiple monitors on Linux for about 6 years now, and ...

I solved it (atleast it seems like a fix). After typing compiz --replace, most of the Unity desktops was like it should be but some things were still strange and I would have to type this command everytime I started Ubuntu. There seems to be a problem with the copnfig so with the desktop beeing "normal" again I first typed dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ to ...

Try this: dconf reset -f /org/compiz unity --reset-icon &disown and it might work fine this way.

Other than suggest you to keep more atention next time and don't go around pasting commands (this is a comment in the site you mention: "This repository no longer has elementary-desktop package" and you also verify this in the PPA itself) the best you could do is remove the PPA along with any package that installed. This wont guarantee anything and please be ...

At the terminal command prompt type: $ unity This will update your *.desktop icons in the Launcher. If the problem is not the Ubuntu Launcher but the application itself take a look http://stackoverflow.com for programming resolutions. A similar issue to this is answered at ...

Looks like the "You need to reboot to ensure installation of up-to-date software. Click here." hint that shows up after a software update if you should reboot. Click it. You need to reboot. Save stuff first.

In short, .desktop file's Icon= path understands absolute paths, but not tilde expansion, because of the specification which defines how .desktop files are supposed to work. Tilde expansion Where you would see tilde (~) expansion to the $HOME environment variable is often for example in bash, which is the usual login shell you interact with on the command ...

The use of paths in a .desktop file In a .desktop file, you need to use absolute and full paths. Therefore ~ is not expanded. This is a commonly made mistake :) Exceptions concerning icons are a.o. described here: Icon to display in file manager, menus, etc. If the name is an absolute path, the given file will be used. If the name is not an absolute ...

The cause Most likely, the issue is the result of a bug (related to the video driver). I assume the second screen is not remembered somehow, and "virtually" re- connected in a rather late stage in the start up (log in) process. Work around As often, even if it is a bug, it doesn't mean we cannot find a work around. If we: can make some kind of a ...

Have a look in the location: /usr/share/icons. That's where most icons are located by theme. You might need to look around a bit but think that would be the best place to look. Good luck!

I found a solution, sort of. By using the latest pre-built binary package. https://userbase.kde.org/Kdenlive/Manual/Installation#Installing_from_pre-built_binary_packages Quite simple, I just downloaded the latest package, opened it in the archive manager, and dragged the extracted folder with all the necessary files, as a subfolder under the kdenlive ...
