Unless I'm mistaken, the format for you /etc/fstab is wrong. The first entry is OK, but the next two should be similar. You can always check it by entering the command sudo mount -a, which will mount all entries, but then you will see any errors at the commandline output. Why would you even want to mount a partition to a mountpoint, then change that ...

It might be a compiz issue. Restarting it with DISPLAY=:0 compiz --replace from tty1 (control-alt-f1) and then switching back to tty7 (control-alt-f7) might help.

I just got this to work by reading how some Windows users got it to work. You just need to add "-sllent" to the startup command. I did this by using Startup Applications. Scroll down till you see Steam, select it and then click Edit. Change the command to look like this: /usr/bin/steam %U -silent I think this also removes it from your Unity panel which ...

For unclear reasons, when you edit the icon of an application's .desktop file with Alacarte, Alacarte edits the Icon= line, but also removes a possible extension from the icon's name. Editing the icon manually will fix the issue, and your icon will be correct.

The script below sets the launcher to auto-hide (in 14.04 / 14.10) if a window of any of the applications, set in applications =, is maximized. The script recognizes if a window is iconized; then the auto-hide stops as long as the window is not visible on your screen. Furthermore, the script is workspace- specific, so it only makes the launcher auto-hide ...

I think themes are generally very specific to the window manager it's made for, you might be able to take the theme "apart" and make a new theme for ubuntu/unity using the same images & colors? Or it's probably easier to try installing cinnamon on ubuntu? Search for install cinnamon ubuntu 14.04 and there are a lot of pages saying how to do it.

You may also use Alt+~ when you are on a grouped item in the standard Unity switcher to cycle through the grouped windows quickly. When your active window is a terminal that has siblings, you can use Alt+~ directly to switch between the windows of the same application. You can use the compizconfig-settings-manager from my other answer to configure a ...

This issue happens quite often with default settings. A lots of applications rely on Alt shortcuts but don't work because unity or compiz is already using them. I don't know of a way to disable the shortcuts temporarily, but even if there is the best solution i've found is to avoid conflicts altogether. The first thing i do on a new setup is go through the ...

Try this: sudo apt-get remove lightdm sudo apt-get install lightdm The idea is that the reinstallation should rewrite all the config files and hopefully appropriate variables with right values.

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 ...

I had a similar issue using UTT. I found Window Snapping and Hot Corners didn't play nicely together. In my case, Hot Corners overrode my Snapping settings and disabling it allowed my Window Snapping preferences to persist. Try disabling Hot Corners.

Yes you can, its actually very simple. Install CCSM if you don't already have it. In the 'commands' section of ccsm assign the command 'close nautilus' to the keybinding you want and there you have it. VERY SIMPLE AND POSSIBLE! In this case your keybinding would be the 'option' key and left click mouse button, just like Mac OSX

From the command-line, somewhat similar behavior is possible. I tried with nautilus but it doesn't support the 'quit' option with 'URI's (folder paths etc) but thunar does support that. So the below would open the file specified in its associated editor without starting thunar. thunar -q myfolder/myfile.properties Let us know if this helps.

Try in terminal: killall unity-panel-service and see if they work. You can also press right button on the title to get those commands aswell. If that won't help, this could be something with your screen resolution. Try changing and see if they work.
