The easiest solution is to go to Systems > Screens (with the lock). Change the time to the screen lock at 1 minute. Then wait until the screen goes black. Touch the mouse and normally it's ok. Come back to the last menu to set the previous time to lock again.

This kind of error is usually caused by memory issues. My 8 year old laptop also has similar issues when I have a lot of tabs open on chrome(around 15 tabs) and when the system uses a lot of RAM. I use indicator-multiload to see how much RAM is used. My laptop only has 2.5 GB of RAM and also has an integrated graphics card. My guess would be that the ...

I can't find any applications specifically designed to do this with the layout that you describe, but Whisker Menu has this layout. Whisker Menu is a plugin for Xfce that gives the user a nicer menu, and appears when it's clicked on the panel. However, if you're desperate, you can run it inside Unity with some hacks - open up a terminal and do the ...

had the same issue, just removing sddm was enough to get lightdm working again apt-get remove --purge sddm searching for the problem brought up some issues regarding the coexistence of lightdm and sddm -> since you'll almost always only need one login-manager anyway, removing sddm should be OK to solve this problem

Unity-tweak is just another tweaking tool such as Ubuntu-tweak or gnome-tweak, yet it's just another application, thus it doesn't to have included in Ubuntu itself since many others aren't also, in addition no tweaking tool was available before by default, then this is not an exception.

mediascanner2.0 is a package used in Unity 8 to discover media and then play it.

Unfortunately, there is no way to make the monitor settings understand you have your external screen on the left and you want the right screen to be the "main" screen, and the "home" location for your desktop icons.

You refer to the "Viewport n" labels appearing when you switch workspaces? It has been said that "there is no concept of workspace names". But you can make your own.

The screen icons in the system settings can actually be dragged, so you can place the green Samsung on the left. Alternatively, you can use this command: xrandr --output HDMI1 --mode 1024x768 --pos 0x0 --rotate normal --output LVDS1 --mode 1366x768 --pos 1024x0 --rotate normal. I use this command (with different outputs of course) to position my screen, ...

Turns out that this was a simple matter of giving the wrong permissions to my icon set. There was nothing wrong with my theme, it just couldn't be read. Odds are, if you're modifying an existing icon theme, it has all the required icons. Permissions just need to be set as 755 for directories, and 644 for files. Lesson from this: Always check permissions!!

In System Settings select Appearance and then go to Behavior tab to modify the launcher auto-hide settings. Probably, what you want to adjust is the sensitivity option.

I would lurk around the install directory where Chromium is (probably somewhere is /usr/) and see if you find any .png, .bmp, or .jpg files (or just images in general). You may be able to manually deny deletion to it like this: sudo chmod 644 [name] sudo chown root:root [name] That should prevent deletion, unless for some reason it's deleting it as root. ...

First, Unity3d only works on Firefox with pipelight, Chromium no longer supports the Netscape Plugin Api, which pipelight needs. In fact, Unity3d doesn't run on Chromium for Windows either.

Go to your desktop and hold the super key (In my case it's the windows key), it will show the shortcuts for unity. And you can also create shortcuts by going into system settings -> keyboard -> shortcuts.

The "problem" is with your graphics stack. Your graphics card does not support 3d, so llvmpipe makes use of your cpu (rather then your gpu). You have 2 options: Replace the graphics card. Use an alternate desktop. I have a similar card and prefer KDE, but you can try xfce, lxde, enlightenment, fluxbox ... See http://www.mesa3d.org/llvmpipe.html
