I had the same problem, just realized it was because of the theme "zukitwo dark theme" I was using.

I had the same issue on 15.04 There was no .pulse but there was .pulse-cookie. So I deleted it and it works like a charm now. So updated solution for 15.04: sudo rm ~/.pulse-cookie

You can do this through the CompizConfig Settings Manager If you have not installed CCSM, just open the terminal and run sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager Open CCSM and go to Workspace Naming under Window Management. If you can not see Workspace Naming, open a terminal and run sudo apt-get install compiz-plugins. Enable Workspace ...

You refer to the "Viewport n" labels appearing when you switch workspaces? It has been said that "there is no concept of workspace names". But you can make your own. Unity's workspace switcher move's compiz's "viewport" around over a big desktop. If you install wmctrl you can slide it around yourself. See this script for details. Perhaps you could adapt it ...

Sometimes the windows are moved out of screen. Press alt+Space to show the window context menu, which opens on screen. Than use move to bring the window to the screen.

I (sort of) managed to work it out. Create "/etc/udev/hwdb.d/90-logitech-m-545.hwdb" with the following: # Logitech M545 keyboard:usb:v046DpC52B* KEYBOARD_KEY_70007=back KEYBOARD_KEY_700E3=forward Then: udevadm hwdb --update Unplug the receiver and plug it back in, and the thumb buttons now behave normally at least in firefox. This is only a ...

From a terminal window type in: sudo apt-mark hold <package name> which should prevent the package from getting updated in the future. You would have to change it back to auto from hold if you want to remove it or update it in the future.

Make sure you have the following installed: sudo apt-get install acpi-support fnfxd toshset You may need to reboot. I believe this is a BIOS setting for toshiba laptops so check the BIOS settings to make sure this is properly set (in case Windows 7 may also have a setting for this as well).

It may help to set acpi OS and vendor in the bootloader by editing grub.cfg, as mentioned here, by adding this: acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor To the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line in /etc/default/grub. You then need to run sudo update-grub and reboot to make the changes. This I find works on a few machines, to get brightness to be less jumpy etc

I am using kubuntu and I've removed the libibus packet at all with all depended packets including the ibus packet itself. No any critical packages was removed, the only some unity packages which was not used anyway under kubuntu. The problem disappears.

Use Tab To Window extension of chrome. it will provide you several shortcuts to manage your tabs. For example, use Alt+Shift+X to move the active tab to a new window. The shortcuts are customisable.

I was facing similar issue some days ago. Please see this solution and it is again working. The only issue remain left is that I can't see notifications while changing the sound/brightness.

I have created this script that I run upon startup and hourly in cron, it should fix that (since disabling and reenabling compiz commands plugin fixes this and that is what the script does in an ugly way - I am sure the bash could be much better, but it works). #!/bin/bash sleep 5 a=`gsettings get org.compiz.core:/org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/core/ ...

Usually you have to run a Logitech utility to reprogram the buttons in such case. Works fine through VirtualBox. (from the experience with my G300 and the fact that the description of M545 says that it is programmable) Another possibility is the evrouter daemon. It can change the events from input devices on the fly. Can be used to fix the problem or ...

I think you're talking about a shell script, which has extensive help available on the internet. I'll get you started, though. Make a new text file. Don't put an extension on, or delete the one already on, if there is one. Open the file with Gedit. Now, at the top line, write !#/bin/bash. The lines below are where you put your commands, one per line. Make ...

The easiest way is to use alt+F2 the type 'r' and enter. This re-starts gnome-shell in the least destructive way. Then go to System Settings keyboard click on the shortcuts tab and verify that your shortcuts are there. Any you have defined are in the custom shortcuts section. If not there, set them up again, close system settings and try each of your ...

First of all you need make it executable. Then move it to /bin directory (you need root-rights): $chmod +x capscr $sudo mv ./capsrc /bin I also recomend to you to edit capscr file, for example mine: #!/bin/bash timestamp="$(date +%d.%m.%Y"_shot_"%H:%M:%S)" targetbase="$HOME/Pictures/screenshots" mkdir -p $targetbase [ -d $targetbase ] || exit 1 import ...

Try looking into autokey If it doesn't work out for you, you should consider using the keyword "macro" for future searches or asking a question

Go to your desktop and hold the super key (In my case it's the windows key), it will show the shortcuts for unity. And you can also create shortcuts by going into system settings -> keyboard -> shortcuts.

You can press and hold 'Super' (like CMD) key and see hints for keyboard shortcuts.

The only solution I see is to kill processes one by one and try to run xbindkeys -n each time. Then you will be able to deduce which process occupies your key combinations. To identify which PIDs you should kill look at ps aufx|grep $(whoami). Start with obvious ones, then continue with leaves except of course non-X applications (bash, mc, etc.) and your ...

I just tries it. Go to Edit --> Preferences, and make sure that you have "Present main window after taking a screenshot" checked. See image below.

The regular hotkeys set by default in VLC are not global, but you can set global ones yourself. Go to Tools > Preferences > Hotkeys in VLC and you will see two different columns "Hotkey" and "Global".

The key combo was changed to Ctrl + Alt + C by default. Also Alt + F4 is will kill the foreground task (same as clicking the cross). To change the interrupt key to ctrl + I stty intr ^i Just change the "i" to any other letter you want and to see all terminal shortcuts you can run stty -a There is a very good answer explaining this here, ignore the ...

I got a solution for your issue. First, install the CompizConfig Settings Manager if you haven't yet: sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager Run it either from the dash or from terminal typing ccsm. Go to "Window Management > Move Window" or just type move window in the filter input text. Now you're there, change the value of "Keyboard Move ...

If you open "System Settings", and choose "Text Entry", you will have an option to add more then one keyboard language. You also have the option to assign a shortcut to change the language on the fly, and show a language switch in the notification area. AFAIK then you cannot add a language, and add different layouts to that language in Ubuntu. Instead you ...

There is no difference between alt-tab and alt-d behaviour. I tested this numerous times on 14.04. The only tricky part is that you have to make sure to press and hold the alt first. So don't press d first. You can see that every time you open the HUD, you have typed a d somewhere. alt - tab works in the exact same way...

Maybe a software can help like KeyTouch. Also, some keybord come with a program for this kind of thing. Hope this help.

Another way is to restart lightdm. In 14.04 that would be sudo service lightdm restart and in 15.04 systemctl restart lightdm

Your gnome-settings-daemon isn't starting on boot, for some reason. The workaround to that is to add gnome-settings-daemon to Startup Applications or add it as a .desktop entry, into /home/yourusername/.config/autostart/ directory. The .desktop entry could be named gnome-settings-daemon.desktop and look something like this: [Desktop Entry] Type=Application ...

For some reason I had another notification daemon running, so I uninstalled it before reinstalling notify-osd: sudo apt-get remove xfce4-notifyd sudo apt-get install --reinstall notify-osd then reboot.
