Hope you have enough disk space for your home files or computer storage that runs the ubuntu software. I had the same issue once when I first installed ubuntu on a 7GB partition. But after I increased the disk size/storage it works fine and no freezing. I run a 32-bit laptop, with 2GB RAM and I am enjoying ubuntu 14.10.

Nautilus is very slow on Ubuntu 14.04 too. I don't know why, maybe problems with plugins? I removed additional Nautilus plugins. It is still very slow and freezes sometimes. I think Canonical should do something, because Ubuntu rocks and should not troubled by a file manager. I'm using the file manager Nemo as a workaround now for a couple of days. It is ...

This is a confirmed bug (see launchpad) The current work-around is: From a terminal: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install unity dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ This will reinstall unity and reset the config. If that doesn't works then: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop rm -f /home/user/.config/dconf/user but be aware that this ...

Yes, there is: Open System Settings > "Security & Privacy" > "Files & Applications" (tab). Add the directory (or the complete drive) to the list to exclude from search. In most cases, you will need to clear the history (completely) and possibly log out / in to take effect. From then on the files will not appear in search, nor in recently used ...

Couple of points: The "Start Menu" is only called that when it is windows. On ubuntu, we call it the "Dash". By Word I guess you mean Libre Office writer. Very different things - although they do do the same thing. To know if you accidentally changed something, I would need to know what you did. Was there something you did / installed before it changed? ...

You can always fullscreen the dash by clicking the maximize button in the top left, which will remove the grey border.

You can disable Internet searches in the dash by clicking "Filter results" in the top-right corner of the dash and deselecting all the sources you don't want.

You could use settings to alter it to be transparent, and under settings to go to desktop, and there you can make it transparent, and you first have to from the terminal enter: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop and write in /usr/share/unity/icons this transparency=10, and it might work fine this way.

Tor can be launched from the dash. The usual problem is that the path to "start-tor-browser" is messed up. Check the command line under "properties" to see if it is correct. If this doesn't work and you used the Tor Browser Bundle, check your download to be sure that you actually decompressed all your files. Find and click the "start-tor-browser" file. If ...

I doubt you can put Tor between yourself and Canonical. Tor is activated through a browser. Why not subscribe to a cheap VPN for about $3.00 per month (annual subscription) and hide the IP from everyone? Even Tor would best be used through a VPN.

From your original question, it looks like the right thing to do would be to move the script to ~/bin/, which should be in your $PATH by default. If you do this, you'll be able to run your script using AltF2 again. You will also be able to pass arguments to it like you do in a shell. You can also add any other folder where you keep your scripts to your ...

Type sudo apt-get install unity-scope-calculator You will get a message saying it is already installed. In order for the results of calculations to show up, you have to filter the results to calculations, located at far right in filters. Worked for me.

Another alternative menu editor is ezame which I have used and works quite well. You can install it by running the following: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:caldas-lopes/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ezame The source code is available on GitHub.
