So I downloaded the latest version of dconf (dconf-0.22.0) and manually configured and installed it. This solved the problem.

Add a shortcut to your launcher. I would not change the main command of the gedit launcher. Do the following: Never edit the default launcher, first copy the one from /usr/share/applications to ~/.local/share/applications: cp /usr/share/applications/gedit.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/gedit.desktop Edit the file with... gedit (not with gksudo) ...

You can modify the owner by opening a terminal up and typing in `chown user /path/to/file like Byte Commander stated you can do this. However, setting the the owner isnt enough. because you're accessing a root placed file in a root only access folder. You need to give your self full permissions. To make your self like root for that file only you need to ...

Version 3 (url): sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/sublime-text-3 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install sublime-text-installer Version 2 (url, not tested, but should work): sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/sublime-text-2 sudo apt-get update sudo ...

I would create a new user, and see if they have the same problem. Just a guess here I think it may be a config issue. Since it does not re-appear with a new user it's a config file somewhere. I would google resetting (insertyourguihere) to defaults and see what that does. If you had a highly customized desktop or something like that bear in mind you ...

1. Command line: You can do that by the command: gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Devices blacklist "[]" Explanation By removing the icon from the launcher, you blacklisted the device from the launcher. With the command above, you "empty" the blacklist. If you want to to have a more selective way to set which device to keep in the launcher, first run: ...

To close off this question (and seeing that no one else came up with a solution a copy of my last comment: Unfortunately (In the mean time I went looking through the source code) SlingScold is not a Window Manager, just an application so you cannot disable Unity, so you cannot bind it to super key, nor to the icon in the top left corner without ...

That is very simple with zenity. Expand the script with a command like this: NUMBER=$(zenity --entry --text="How many Labels should be printed?" --entry-text=1) The variable $NUMBER now contains the input from the user. If the user just presses "OK" it will contain "1". Unfortunetly libreoffice doesn't accept a flag to specify the number of copies. So ...

As the permission of the file is b.sh is -rw------- b.sh, there is no execute bit set for user, group or others. If you want to execute the file as 'userB' then running the following will do: sudo chmod 605 /home/userA/Documents/b.sh

The two simplest ways are going to be: add the directory containing the application to your PATH environment variable. For example, add a line like export PATH=$PATH:/opt/sublime_text to your ~/.bashrc file.

You could try the Lubuntu distribution. It's not as pretty as Ubuntu but light on resources and very responsive. You can even switch to it without a total system re-installation while retaining the Unity desktop in case you want to go back.

Normally, When you run Eclipse from a downloaded version, it should create a correct .desktop file in ~/.local/share/applications on first run. In this case, for some reason, some lines were messed up: The Exec= -line should simply show the path to your executable. The Name= -line obviously went (terribly) wrong as well How to fix Just replace: The ...

IMPORTANT EDIT With the commands: xdotool windowunmap <window_id> and xdotool windowmap <window_id> it turns out there is a way to completely mask the presence of application windows temporarily.

You can right click on the icon in the launcher to close it. Then you can load it from the start menu by typing in 'updater'. For me this loaded it up properly, although it's the second day in a row it's done this so not sure if it's a permanent fix...
