Its a bug that occurs with desktop icon viewability set to off (can be enabled/disabled with a tool like ubuntu tweak). After a recent system update, if you change this setting to hide desktop icons from view in the desktop, you might get this lockup-on-minimize behavior. Case closed, Ill report this on launchpad.

I'm finding Ubuntu Files to be very slow (Ubuntu seems slow in general). From what I've gathered it doesn't utilize an index. One workaround is to install the Recoll indexing app, and add 'unity-scope-recoll' from a ppa. This allows terms to be tested against the index and displayed in the lens.

I had this happen to me on Ubuntu 14.10 x86_64 with kernel 3.16.0-28 after loading Nvidia 346 drivers. After login I would get the blank Ubuntu background wallpaper and nothing else, no way to do anything. There are many similar problems posted online over the past four years; most of the solutions did not work for me. Attempting to restart unity I got an ...

For anyone having problems with the autoresizing this can be disabled in Compiz by: Launch CCSM -> Window Management -> Resize Window -> General -> Uncheck Maximize Vertically if Screen edge hit.

I assume it is a setting that is not active. Here you can click on a scope and make it either active or inactive: The "locked-scopes" has a description "List of scope IDs that the user will see as installed and won't be able to enable nor disable." The scopes shown are the ones that are installed. You can toggle all of them. I would assume this means ...

The Ubuntu desktop is actually compiz and Unity itself is just a compiz plugin. If you, instead, set and enable the compiz "commands" plugin and set keyboard shortcuts using ccsm where there is a conflict, ccsm should alert you to what plugin is causing the conflict and should also provide options to disable the conflicting plugin or conflicting keybinding ...

It seems a lot of people are having boot issues with the latest update. It appears it has to do with the newest kernel. It happened to me as we'll and I had to reinstall everything before I did a little research. What worked for me was the following: Restar your machine and press shift to get to the Grub menu and select a previous version from your kernel. ...

Following indications from here: Right-click on Xfce panel and navigate to “Panel -> Panel Preferences ….

Absolutely, but you don't need to create an additional launcher (.desktopfile) to do that. You can add the command: gnome-terminal --working-directory=/home/name/android/system to your existing gnome-terminallauncher as a quicklist item, available on right-click. How to do that: Copy your global .desktop file to the local directory ...

Other than just creating shortcut in launcher you won't get any feature that you would not get in regular browser. I did once, the native browser does not give you many features like bookmark, add-ons etc. It will just create a shortcut in dash that you can search and just launch without typing URL

Thanks for replies! :) I can set up the displays on both monitors. But the thing is now: When i put the screens in configuration in proper order (left and right as it is in real) then display is extended (for ex. browser) on both monitors and i cant simply maximize window on one of them (it is maximized on both screens). When i switch places in ...

I can think of two mundane reasons that could be if you are new to linux. One might be a graphics problem meaning that the textbox is off the screen. The other is that it was last logged in in guest mode and you need to select one of the other accounts on it to log in with.

I had the same problem today Solution: sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager (if CCSM not already installed) Go to the dash and start compizconfig Click on "Window Management" in the left-side pane Activate the applications switcher When CCSM ask you to deactivate the former switcher shortcut, just agree. Now you can run a selenium server ...

Coincidentally, I just ran into the same issue. It seems to be a bug, because restarting Dropbox fixes it temporarily, but only until the next restart.

I'm still new to Linux (using Mint, but I think this is pretty much the same). I tried this: sudo apt-get purge kde-full --auto-remove (I used kde-full to install it, replace that with whatever you used) It's much shorter and doesn't make you look up every single package involved.

Using the latest FGLRX release from AMD ( AMD Catalyst™ 14.12 Proprietary Ubuntu 14.04 x86_64 12/8/2014), the system still hangs at least once per day using a R7-260, so I downgraded back to the open source driver. Your results may differ for the 6750. You also mention re-installing Ubuntu, which shouldn't be necessary. If you can get a desktop, you can ...

What it means by "Devices" is actually USB drives and other temporary drives/partitions. It does not mean regular hardware devices like graphics card etc. To see if it works, try turning it on and then connect a USB thumb drive or external HDD/CD drive. If a new icon pops up, it works.

It appears you're running in a VM. OpenGL vendor string: VMware, Inc I dont think VMs have enough access to the host GPU to really utilize it effectively.

Not sure, but you can try: When bootig up your PC press Shift to force show the Grub. Then start to command line and login to your user. Then type: dconf reset -f /org/compiz That should reset Compiz to defaults.

Things like ubuntustudio-desktop are called meta packages, packages without any real content, but that pull in a bunch of other packages as dependencies. This makes them rather tricky to remove without the logs. I've looked through the stuff ubuntustudio-desktop pulls in and figure you should be able to safely remove the following packages: sudo apt-get ...

You can! What you need to do is to go to the terminal (accessible through the Dash) and type in sudo apt-get install unity8-desktop-session-mir. Next you have to log out, and you may need to restart. I had to. Once you restart, click on the Ubuntu logo on the login screen and select the Unity 8 Mir option. You'll then be able to use Unity 8 and Mir. Please ...

As noted in the comments, if you want things to function the exact same way as in Fedora, you'll have to use GNOME, not Ubuntu's default Unity. However, in Unity you can display all the windows open on a given workspace by hitting Super+W. If you want to see all the windows on all workspaces, hold Shift+Super, then hit W. Holding Super will bring up ...

The older way of dragging a window outside the screen was sending it partly to another workspace because the "window snapping" feature was absent (the one that you experienced: "if I drag a window to the side of the workspace, the window is maximized to half of the screen"). Now, it is enabled by default. Do disable it, install Unity Tweaks Tool: Window ...

Don't go to the NVidia site to download their driver, as you'll never get rid of it in the future. The standard Ubuntu NVidia drivers generate some problems on slightly older and slightly newer NVidia hardware. If you want more then the standard Ubuntu repository drivers, install the xorg.edgers PPA. As the xorg.edgers group ask not to give installation ...

This sounds like a video drive issue. Are you connecting the displays to the onboard Intel video controller or the NVIDIA controller? If you are using the NVIDIA controller, I'd recommend going to the NVIDIA site, looking up the NVS5200M video controller, downloading the driver for Linux, and then reload the driver and reboot the system.

It could be an actual font that's gone bad, maybe taking a look at that font with something like gnome-font-viewer to check, possibly reisntall the font? But, that's almost exactly what used to happen when I ran earler versions of gnome3 (I think that's still the base for Unity), only it had more letters completely gone and a few other graphic errors here ...

IMHO, the "simpliest" way is to use an alternative desktop environment rather than Unity. Look at Xfce or KDE.

To troubleshoot this is easy, to solve a bit less so... Boot your Ubuntu Live CD, double-click on the system partition icon and have a look at /media/ubuntu/SomeWeirdNumber/var/log/syslog and kern.log There you will find most information to trouble-shoot this.

When I upgrade to ubuntu 14.04 I got a lot of depency errors like this one.

when the date changes -- use cron (man at); also how to execute a command after resume from suspend? Another thing is for app to be notified. Usual thing for IPC is signal handler (POSIX setsig()) and using kill command with custom signal id, e.g. SIGUSR1. Do you write with C?

I also tried the crouton & chrubuntu routs. Considering that crouton was written by a google engineer, it is plausible to assume, Google prefers users stick to Google own chromeOS - instead of ubuntu (or other Linus OS).
