I had the same issue. The HUD used to work fine. I did install the Tweak tool (to get sloppy pointer focus). Restarting unity (see How do I restart an Unity session from the terminal?) made the HUD come back.

This command worked for me: DISPLAY=:0 compiz --replace& The DISPLAY=:0 is needed only if calling from another shell (for example, when using ctrl-F1 terminal).

At some point this problem disappeared for me. Maybe restarting helped?

Now I know why this weird thing happens. Coz u have different kernel. When I initially install Gnome14.10, it uses kernel version 3.16.0-23-generic and gnome version 3.12, then I upgrade to kernel 3.16.0-29-generic and gnome 3.14. When I reinstall the original gnome 14.10(kernel 3.16,0-23 gnome 3.12) and restore my sys(kernel 3.16.0-29 and gnome 3.14) this ...

What you are looking for is unity scope or lens. From my searches online so far I have not found a scope or lens that would allow searching for software. However, if you are looking for an alternative to Software Center, I recommend you get familiar with lubuntu software center or apt-cache search command in terminal. In the last year and half I've only ...

This answer has a solution for you. It would set the dash to just show apps when you open it.

It is only slow on my desktop computer where I have about 80k digital images. I guess if you use the search for the first time after booting the search engine needs to load its index. On other machines with much less files the search is fast. This is just a guess, since I don't know which kind of database/index gets used by the dash search. In my case it ...

This is a long shot but I ran into the same issue as you and it took me an hour of trial and error to fix it. I haven't figured out why, but the unity settings are probably messed up. You need to start the compiz config settings tool. I couldn't figure out how to start it from command line so I started up a cinnamon session where I could start the settings ...
