Run bleachbit from terminal as SUDO and clear system cache. I had the same problem and that resolved it.

Finally, I solved this problem, though I'm not sure which one below solved the problem, since I tried both steps successively. Try 1: Ctrl+Alt+F1 sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager export DISPLAY=:0 ccsm Try 2: dconf reset -f /org/compiz unity --reset-icons &disown To get back to the login screen service lightdm restart

I would not suggest that you did something wrong. I encountered the same issue with unity through installing updates. it seems the fix is to run dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ which resets the compiz profiles and plugins associated with unity. after the command you could reboot or simply restart lightdm (sudo service lightdm restart)and log back in. ...

Absolutely, but you don't need to create an additional launcher (.desktopfile) to do that. You can add the command: gnome-terminal --working-directory=/home/name/android/system to your existing gnome-terminallauncher as a quicklist item, available on right-click. How to do that: Copy your global .desktop file to the local directory ...

Try quoting the path - e.g: "C:\Games\World_of_Tanks\WotLauncher.exe" you can also try wrapping the command in: bash -c "COMMAND GOES 'ERE"

The question is not the same. nor the symptoms, but it is related to this one and this one. What is the issue It looks like your global .desktop file in /usr/share/applications, representing the locked icon in the launcher (the topmost one in your image), has a differently named copy in ~/.local/share/applications . Maybe (likely) as a result of using ...

From your comment, it turns out that there is no icon defined in the .desktop file. You can use an icon "of your choice", and edit the line: Icon=.png to: Icon=/path/to/your/icon.png You will possibly have to log out and back in to make the change appear. Note1 If you found your .desktop file in /usr/share/applications, it is good practice to first ...

You should press Ctrl+Alt+F1 which brings you to a black terminal screen. Log in there with your normal user name and password. Then you should follow this procedure: How can I uninstall a nvidia driver completely ? :)

I also had the same problem and I fixed it using almost same method. In order to things works as you wish, check following things. 1.I assume .desktop file was created in you desktop. After you created it, that file does not have execution permission by default. So right click your .desktop file -> properties -> permissions. Then tick Allow executing file ...

I just got this to work by reading how some Windows users got it to work. You just need to add "-sllent" to the startup command. I did this by using Startup Applications. Scroll down till you see Steam, select it and then click Edit. Change the command to look like this: /usr/bin/steam %U -silent I think this also removes it from your Unity panel which ...

For unclear reasons, when you edit the icon of an application's .desktop file with Alacarte, Alacarte edits the Icon= line, but also removes a possible extension from the icon's name. Editing the icon manually will fix the issue, and your icon will be correct.
