After selecting the NVIDIA binary driver - version 340.76 from nvidia-340 (proprietary, tested) for my GPU, I restarted my box and the problem went away. I surmise that after a kernel version minor update (perhaps requiring a restart, but I did not see that recommendation), the dash shell's gui's old dependencies were somehow not met when using the X.Org X ...

menulibre doesn't supports *.desktop files. Therefore nothing is displayed in Unity. Try arronax sudo apt-add-ppa ppa:diesch/testing sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install arronax

I had the same problem, and all I had to do was: sudo apt-get install unity && unity and my desktop immediately fixed itself.

This would not be possible, at least since 12.04 and beyond this has not been possible. Disabling every single Unity animation would require someone to recompile Unity completely, as the animations are hard coded into it. Another option was available at one point and that was "Ubuntu 2D", but that has been marked discontinued for a good period of time. So ...

Is the window maximized or full-screen? And is your system updated? The question you linked to is from April 2014, so my thinking is that this could be an old bug that has been fixed with an update to Unity. I am running 14.04 with Unity, and have never had this problem. My other guess is that you are missing a driver. If it is a driver issue, try updating ...

Had this problem myself and I fixed it by: From the DASH / Unity program, move the mouse down to the grey bar of icons at the bottom of the screen: Click on the second from the left, (the capital A with a ruler across it) Scroll completely to the end of the list to "Applications". It has the same symbol of the A crossed with a ruler. Then click "Enable", ...

For the random site issue, it's going to be in your home area, under ~/.local/share/applications. You will probably find some strangley named ones in there - for example chrome-gbchcmhmhahfdphkhkmpfmihenigjmpp-Default.desktop. I'd suggest not removing them - they're for your extensions. However, if you see one with the name of the site that lauches, do ...

To remove the home: Install dconf-editor, if you haven't already: sudo apt-get install dconf-editor Open dconf editor and go to com > canonical > unity > dash and in scopes, remove the first entry that reads 'home.scope' You can further tweak the settings to your likings. For example, if you do not want to ermove home lens instead give priority to ...

You can check Fix Ubuntu: What's this about? If you're an Ubuntu user and you're using the default settings, each time you start typing in Dash (to open an application or search for a file on your computer), your search terms get sent to a variety of third parties, some of which advertise to you. Ubuntu should protect user privacy by ...

A simpler approach than the other answers. Rather than going through the hassle of creating the .desktop file yourself, once you load the program you can go to Tools > Create Desktop Entry. Now you can run it from the launcher.

You can edit it with GIMP or other image editors, because the .png files are stored in /usr/share/unity/icons The name of the files are category_gradient.png and category_gradient_no_refine.png.

Like the asker, I too mainly used the Dash for opening applications. There are things (e.g. those mentioned above by others) that can speed up the Dash. However, I found start startup speed remained an issue - presumably due to re-indexing. The best solution for me was to use "Gnome Do" instead. It's very neat and very fast. It's also in the ubuntu ...
