FWIW, a similar thing happened to me. I have Lubuntu 15.10 and the multiple panel icon thing happened to me with AutoKey. IIRC, the way I got rid of it was to do a Ctrl+Alt+T to bring up the Terminal. Then I typed lxpanelctl restart to restart the panel. After this one time, it never happened again.

this link should solve your problem: https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/ubuntu-help/display-dual-monitors.html Basically, it's adjustable through the system settings -> display. set the launcher to be shown only on one monitor, and then it becomes the primary monitor. afterwards, you can show launcher on both monitors without changing the primary monitor.

In fact jar is not an application. It can be treated like pdf or docx or smth like that. In detail, jar is just a set of compiled java classes and some meta information packed into zip archive with jar extension. Can't say if there is any native way, but try to create a shell script launcher, I guess it should be treated as "normal" executable.

Resolved by deleting the config folder and then rebooting.

This can easily be accomplished by removing every Desktop Environment, then rebooting to test what the actual cause of the second boot falling back is. Please note that you may not have some of these desktops installed, but please use all commands in order to purge remnants of possible failed installs: Remove Cinnamon Stable sudo apt-get install ppa-purge ...

cd /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d && sudo ln -s 50-unity-greeter.conf 99-unity-greeter.conf and reboot the system. The problem is caused by lightdm-gtk-greeter installing file called 60-lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf which overrides the unity greeter. I guess we should be able to just do sudo update-alternatives --config lightdm-greeter and select ...

The answer was to delete the Super key binding, which is used to open the dash. I think the search lens is bound to <whatever opens the dash>+C so that did it.

Another not answer but solution. I use quicklists to create launchers for my most commonly used terminal sessions, i then make profiles for each one in gnome-terminal to do things like change their colours, this makes it really easy to know which server you are using. You can do this by editing your gnome-terminal.desktop file in ~/.local/share/...

Not an answer As mentioned in the comment, an application in principle can only be represented by one icon in the launcher at a time. This has always been the case. What you are referring to is probably that Unity has become "smarter" in determining which of the .desktop files is the best representative for the application's window. Therefore, your script,...

This seems to be a bug in 16.04 see #1578792 and 1572348 As a workaround till this issue is fixed you need to pin Nautilus to the Launcher. Open Dash and search for nautilus Drag and Drop Nautilus icon to the Launcher Make sure you leave the nautilus icon on the Launcher (no pressing Unlock from Launcher) as otherwise the icon will disappear again.

Have you checked the permissions on the image you're using to make sure other users & groups have read access to the image? Usually it will revert to the default lock screen when it doesn't have sufficient privileges to read the file (as it will be owned by your user).

You can't move the dock in 14.04. While there are some unofficial plugins that make this possible (that have since seemed to vanish), it wasn't a native feature. That feature was added in Ubuntu 16.04, which only supports moving to the bottom. The command to make this take effect is below: gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Launcher launcher-position Bottom

I believe this is intended behavior. The Display manager (in this case, lightdm) creates and manages the login/x session. When you restart the display manager, you kill the x session and the currently logged in session and must log back in and establish a new session. Someone more knowledgeable correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this is the case.

I also find annoying that the terminal shortcuts to copy and paste are different from what's used in the rest of the system.

No, it isn't possible directly. Although you have a workaround.

workaround in this post worked for me I went to /usr/share/applications and took a backup of nautilus.desktop and org.gnome.Nautilus.desktop Then: In nautilus.desktop, removed "NotShowIn=Unity;" In org.gnome.Nautilus.desktop, added "NotShowIn=Unity;" and removed "OnlyShowIn=Unity;"

Navigate to System Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts. It should look like this: There should be options available to configure the shortcuts there. Look for the Super+S shortcut and change it to F1. Also, remember to change the F1 shortcut to Super+S afterwards and that should sort out the problem.

I solved this issue a different way. I installed 16.04 on a very old computer. I installed the Nvidia legacy driver, and got the blank screen. I installed Lubuntu to use the LXDE desktop. That is working very well for me. sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop

What is happening is that nautilus itself is always running in the background. If you start a new nautilus instance, it will just "attach" to the previously running instance of nautilus, then close itself. That is why it is disappearing from the launcher. Try opening nautilus with Alt + F2 like you said, right click it, then hit "Lock to Launcher". This ...

Did you ever figure out what the problem was? This exact behavior just started happening to me since the latest update on 16.04.

It does work ...even tested it, but the launcher icon is unresponsive for about 7 seconds after you clicked. If you click again after these 7 seconds, it will work again. This "break" is caused by the icon, waiting for a window to appear. This won' t be the case, since the appearing gnome-terminal -window is "claimed" by the gnome-terminal's launcher icon, ...

If the bug has already been reported on Launchpad, don't file a duplicate. Instead, you should click on "Does this bug affect you?" and then click on "Yes, it affects me". If you want to provide more details in the form of screenshots or logs, then make a post on the bug report with these details so that the devs have more useful information to work with.

For chromium, you can create a script in /etc/chromium-browser/customizations For instance i have a script with one line CHROMIUM_FLAGS="${CHROMIUM_FLAGS} --enable_hidpi=1 --process-per-site" I imagine chrome has something similar.
