I have the same problem since after unistalling mate desktop, any solution?

I had a similar issue for quite a while, and I tried every fix possible to get applications to appear, even so far as to remove Unity and install it once again. However, I discovered that Chrome had installed an app with unicode characters in the name. On Windows, it wasn't an issue at all, however, on Ubuntu, whenever this app was synced and installed, the ...

Reboot your system and press Control-Alt-F1 to get to a text terminal. Log in there and type the following: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop sudo apt-get install --reinstall lightdm

It is possible something happened to damage or remove the icons that Unity is trying to reload. So you may want to try reinstalling the Ubuntu desktop environment as described here: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop sudo apt-get install unity This may be slightly overkill for just some missing icons but it may fix your ...

To be honest it would be better to back up for files and all config files in the Home folder and do a fresh install of Ubunutu. If not try this: Start by running this command: Uninstall just ubuntu-gnome-desktop sudo apt-get remove ubuntu-gnome-desktop This will remove just the ubuntu-gnome-desktop package itself. Uninstall ubuntu-gnome-desktop and ...

Not sure what happened, but the problem seems to be solved. I've upgraded RAM memory from 4gb to 16gb, bought a new 6gb/s hard disk and reinstalled wily werewolf on new disk. Now it already turn on with normal speed.

Mostly, that's the problem of your DE (GNOME, Lxde etc.), not the driver. Probably, the window manager fails to start, so you need to either reinstall your WM or your DE. Also you may try to run WM by yourself. Hope that helps.

I was finally able to fix this by myself. Make sure JAVA_HOME is set correctly in the profile of your shell. For instance, I'm using zsh so I have to add export JAVA_HOME=/..... in ~/.zshrc If you specified any jar file to run as javaagent in idea.vmoptions, make sure to specify its full path name. Simply create .desktop file from IDEA or manually and ...

Turns out this was a bug in 15.10 and made it into 16.04. It's been reported and marked as Confirmed. Hope a fix is released soon. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity/+bug/1574759

I found a cleaner solution than the original I was having problems with. Instead of using imwheel.. I used CompizConfig Settings Manager under Window Management -> Scale -> Bindings -> Initiate Window Picker (with the mouse icon). For my case I wanted the first thumb button which was button8. Done.

That is not the "lightweight" environment. It appears you have installed the ubuntu-gnome-desktop package. You need to install ubuntu-desktop and make sure you choose Unity at the log-in screen instead of GNOME. You can also just run sudo apt-get autoremove --purge ubuntu-gnome-desktop and then sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop to do a more complete swap. ...

Press [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[t] to open the terminal, right click the icon on the Launcher and select "Lock to Launcher". Other option is search the terminal program, press the Windows Key and write terminal. Keep the windows key pressed to see the keyboard menu.

You might want to switch to Ubuntu MATE 16.04 LTS. AFAIK due to an installer bug you'll need to do a clean install if you want to migrate from Ubuntu 14.04.x to 16.04.0 LTS. I did that, got rid of quite some cr*** and now my system's speedy as heck. Also, it sports the old GNOME desktop. Worth a try!

There is no option as of right now for automatic pinning of the .desktop file to the launcher of an application that was just installed. It does not just include IntelliJ but many other applications. Technically speaking , there are ways to append an icon to the list of icons on the launcher , however most developers don't use it and leave that option up ...

A simpler solution (if anybody look at this thread): Create a new user Log in with the new user and try to change your desktop settings or whatever you need to change (don't use many programs, only the necessary ones). If everything works, then logout. Log in with your old user and launch gksudo nautilus in terminal (ctrl+alt+t). If gksudo is not found you ...

Based upon what you've said, yes, do a re-install. If you want to save your data, boot from a live CD and copy the contents of your /home folder to an external drive. Then re-install, and once booted, you can copy your data back to the internal disk.

Just installed an update of Parallels Version 11.2.0 (32581) and I seems to have a new package of Parallels Tools. It does not contain the file libprlcompiz_0_9_12_2.so anymore and added some others.

Disclaimer: this is NOT an answer, I'm just sharing the workaround I've used After 5 versions of Ubuntu run on Gnome Shell (without a single problem), the update to 16.04 has broken it completely. In my case, logging in with Gnome Shell lead to a screen where the only two things working were the hot corner and the highlighting of the Desktop icons. ...

To add a script to a keyboard shortcut: Unless the script is in $PATH (like ~/bin), use the full path to the script, don't use ~ or relative paths. If you use full path, start (as always) with a slash, e.g.: sh /home/username/script.sh Your example doesn't :) If your script is executable, just the full path will do: /home/username/script.sh if it ...

Open the terminal. An icon for this application will appear in the Launcher. Right-click this icon (the one that appeared in the Launcher) and select "Lock to Launcher" from the context menu that appears. For the other issue, please ask a separate question. (One question per post).

What happens when you click Lock To Launcher option, is that Unity will change specific dconf schema for the launcher favorites and call couple of dbus methods. The key for programmers and application developers is the change in dconf schema. ( Jacob's answer relies on gsettings, however the idea is essentially the same as gsettings is just front end with ...

It does work as anas has said but after doing so right click it and open a new window. If you do not open a new window what happens is if you click the one in the dash a second icon will appear and then it will disappear when you close out of the opened one from the dash. No arrows will appear next to the one you dragged from the dash. Once you have right ...

Unity uses Compiz as composing manager, and that has all sorts of plugins for this sort of stuff.

You just click on the app then drag it into the trash (it work for me).

The dash still requires the old ubuntu software center to uninstall programs, even though it is not included with 16.04. Install the software-center package and log out and back in to your account and then you will be able to view screenshots of programs and uninstall them by right clicking on them in the dash like in previous versions.

I had this issue until recently. What you should do is delete the contents of ~/.local/share/rhythmbox/audioscrobbler, particularly the file sessions, then try and authenticate again. It should work then.

I had this same problem of duplicated icon. but in my case it was caused because I double clicked in the eclipse executable and ask unit to lock it in the launcher. this action makes unity to create an eclipse.desktop file into ~/.local/share/applications where its "exec=" was set to java instead of eclipse executable.

I found the solution. I'm not sure what exactly was the problem, but this issue seems to have disappeared on a fresh install of 16.04. Perhaps they updated the dependencies properly in it? I'm not sure. But I can personally confirm that this is no longer an issue in 16.04

Not sure if it will work because I don't have this issue but my firefox is synced with my windows system and that may be why. If you click on the button in the right top corner (where you would click to get to preferences) then click on Customize in there you should see themes .. maybe try selecting a different theme might set it right.

What you could do is to install and use a complete theme for Firefox that includes its own scrollbars etc. This won't look like the old default, but I bet you can find something similar or even nicer. In the Tools menu, select Add-ons, there go to the Get add-ons tab and scroll down the page. In the lower left corner is a link See all complete themes. This ...
