I don't have enough rep to comment, but what's the output of swapon -s? If your not running a certain amount of swap space, your not doing your memory any favours. To make this more of an answer than a comment, I suggest also trying to remove as much of the extraneous bloatware that comes with ubuntu as possible. It's up to you to decide what you do and ...

Installing Shutter would work (as Mitch mentioned in the comments above), but you can also just use the default screenshot program. One option is to hold down shift+alt, then let go of shift (but still hold alt) and finally hit PrtSc. Holding and letting go of shift prevents the menu or HUD from being invoked. You can also just set a delay. Type ...

Not sure how useful this is, since you might not like your Dash to be black... Setting the Dash to no blur with the CompizConfig Settings Manager used to do this, but no longer. Using Unity Tweak you can make it opaque, but with the caveat that the Dash must be black. Selecting any other color will mean it's still transparent. To install Unity Tweak, copy ...

Ubuntu 12.04LTS Unity 5, the Unity version used in Ubuntu 12.04LTS Precise Pangolin, doesn't have support for theming Unity Dash and Launcher. However, you can still alter it's appearance by replacing Unity's image assets. This is an unsupported and unofficial method and is more of a hackish/modding way. But as of now, it's the only way to theme Ubuntu ...

Had a similar problem but I don't remember what I did exactly.

Then run the following commands and afterwards reboot your system: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install --reinstall ...

rm -rf ~/.local/ ~/.cache/ ~/.config/ ~/.kde/ will reset most everything as far as your account goes. You could get more fine-grained than that if you looked in all of the "dot" directories for anything KDE related. You can also run dpkg-reconfigure lightdm to try to fix the login screen issues.

Yes. You have "Improve systemtray on HiDPI displays" AND you have not set proper DPI. You should set True DPI value for you monitor in "Appearance-Fonts" setting in the System Control. If this does not work, set proper DPI in Xorg settings.

As @Mani suggested. Install Unity-Tweak-Tool. That will install a tool for costumizing the Unity interface. Somewhere in the settings, there should be a bar transparency setting.

For Unity Only I don't know how to do this in KDE but just happened to stumble upon this earlier today. STEP-ONE Go to system settings and adjust "scale for menu and title-bars". Initially, this will also affect your font size but we'll get to that in the next step. STEP-TWO Open unity-tweak-tool (if it's not installed it's available through apt-get). ...

System Monitor Indicator is quite simple / flexible. You can add basically any script as custom sensor. The output it produces will then appear where you put its placeholder. I am using this to extract information from the output of sensors like this: sensors | grep temp1 | awk '{print $2}' | sed 's/+//' to exctract the temperature or sensors | grep ...

ELI5 version: You can't. Long version: If you need Windows and need to get your Ubuntu fix, you might want to try installing Ubuntu in a virtual machine using VirtualBox, or dual-booting. There might be Windows themes/hacks to make it look like Ubuntu, but it won't be the actual Ubuntu desktop.

LightDM and GDM are Display Managers. If you choose one over the other, the login screen you get differs. That's about it from an end-user perspective. You can always choose the Display Manager by running: sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm # or gdm You will be presented with a dialogue like the one you have been shown now, and you can select which ever ...

You don't drag it. Open the program, with the launcher. Then the icon should appear in docky? Right click on the icon in the dock, and chose pin to dock. Even when you close it, it will still be there. For other things, you could create a custom .desktop file with the command xdotool key Super+S. Then you can drag that from where you saved it to docky.

Short answer: Not possible. This is just not supported. Maybe a future version of Ubuntu will offer more fine-grained control, but for now at least you will have to do with the values that are there.

So it seems that the IOMMU bios setting is a real issue for many with Gigabyte mainboards. After having toggled this setting and re-installed Ubuntu it all runs smoothly and nice again.
