You can go in "Settings" and under "Notifications", you will see in the list "Spotify", disable what you don't want (I only kept what relate to "Lock Screen" in my case), close that window, exit Spotify and restart it, you should get rid of the anoying track alerts.

This is similar and related to (and perhaps the same as) bug 1103593. dafreez has suggested a workaround that I think might help you (which I've reproduced here with small spelling/capitalization and formatting tweaks): I've created a workaround until this is fixed: Create a text file foo in directory bar with the following script: #!/bin/bash ...

There are many keyboards available in the market with special "media keys" on them like 'calculator key' which when pressed would launch the calculator directly or the 'media player key' which would launch the default media player when pressed. So these are the special launcher shortcuts that you see in keyboard setting panel.

You could use the unity tweak tool to manually edit that setting. Maybe something went wrong while upgrading.

No, Unity 7.3.1 will not be backported to 14.04. The good news is that, with the exception of changes made to build or run with newer versions of software in Ubuntu 14.10 (for example, compiling under GCC 4.9 instead of GCC 4.8, newer GTK+ libraries, etc.), almost all bugfixes have been backported to Unity 7.2 and SRU'd into 14.04. There are no bugfixes ...

This problem happens when using automount, even if you automat a parition on your disk. I am going to wait for the next release of nautilus and hope it goes away. An alternative is to use nemo file manager. webupd8.org has the files to update you system and you can set it as the default file manager. Problem then goes away.

On my xubuntu I have "Task Manager", I had a quick look and it doesn't appear to call indicator-multiload, and it's never caused a problem for me. Maybe give that a whirl? I assume you've also uninstalled, purged, and reinstalled indicator-multiload, just in case successive overlay upgrades are the reason behind it being strange? Best of luck!

A gtk application defines what should be in the menus at the top of its window and specifies what functions should be run when each is selected. The toolkit then implements those instructions using X. That's the design of gtk (and other toolkits).

The default shortcut for opening a terminal is Ctrl+Alt+T, so you don't necessarily need to change it, just start using the default. But if you do want to customize shortcuts, the keyboard settings panel in Ubuntu 13.10 (I will confirm 14.04 soon), is where the "Launch terminal" shortcut is controlled. I changed it to Super+T and it now works to open a ...

The reason search isn't working in this case is because /media is blacklisted in /etc/updatedb.conf. The solution is to mount the partition on /mnt and ran sudo /etc/cron.daily/mlocate. Search uses multiple search engines. Zeitgeist indexes the recently used documents, which is why some files from the partition are showing, and some aren't. But other search ...

I am having the same problem. I have 1GB VRAM and unity consumes usually around 850MB - this makes most of the games unable to even run and if they do, they are choppy as ***.

OK, one weird thing is that the compiled gnome-terminal with the patch will not work if your DISPLAY var is :0 , works flawlessly if DISPLAY=localhost:0. So you can edit /usr/bin/gnome-terminal/wrapper and add this: $ENV{"DISPLAY"}="localhost:0"; right before the exec line. Subsequently you can use /usr/bin/gnome-terminal/wrapper as the launcher!

Upgrading to 14.04 seemed to be the solution. This machine has been used extensively and been left logged in for 6 days in a row now, and still runs as responsively and smoothly as a freshly rebooted machine / relogged user. Nothing has changed about my hardware. What I have noticed is that gnome-screensaver wasnt set as the default screen saving action for ...
