So the problem has been with the dependencies, namely libegl1-mesa-drivers depending on libglapi-mesa ( = 10.1.3-0ubuntu0.3 ) (maybe should be >=) I have added the xorg-edgers PPA again and then properly downgraded with ppa-purge as so: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa && sudo apt-get update sudo ppa-purge ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa ...

I've had decent results in the past using Remmina as I recall. It supports numerous protocols including RDP (A Windows favourite). More information can be found here: https://freerdp.github.io/Remmina/index.html and soon here: http://remmina.sourceforge.net/ I recall changing the default RDP port (for security reasons) I used Remmina on the Ubuntu side and ...

I have same issue in Precise. Tried: sudo mv /usr/lib/unity/unity-panel-service ~ Worked after I reversed the command and put unity-panel-service back in its original folder. I don't understand why it would take removing the file and putting it back, for it to work. If anyone understands why, I'm sure a lot of people would love to know. But it ...

I've found a dirty solution for that. When I press F4, it switches my display configuration, I believe most laptops work the same way, so, here is the solution: after you push F4 about 6 times, until your main display (laptop) and your secondary display are appearing (for the second time), you'll be able to see the buttons in the Windows taskbar.

It will work just fine if you install gnome shell from the official repository. You can choose the desktop in the login screen else you will be automatically logged on to the last selection. Also during install you can choose between the lightdm and gdm greeters, the first is the default and the second is the gnome one (both should work fine with unity and ...

This is a partial solution, as I couldn't figure out why it doesn't work for active window. As mentioned by chaskes, decoration transparency now is defined by themes using CSS (property or external background image). Tested with Ambiance theme: modified /usr/share/themes/Ambiance/gtk-3.0/apps/unity.css by commenting background-image of ...

Check if it's tracking the correct folder by installing the Search & Index tools. You can use the Software Centre, or with this command: $ sudo apt-get install tracker-gui tracker-utils Additionally, I'd recommend telling Tracker not to look at the Videos and Downloads directory, and filter out '*.jpg' files. This is based on this thread for Arch ...

This was resolved for me after shutting down and restarting. The Unity application launcher now correctly appears in front of any other window. For me the unity&disown solution didn't work - it actually made the entire unity UI permanently disappear until restarted, including the top part of every window with the close, minimize and maximize buttons. ...

The script below can be used as an additional functionality to the "resize-to-quarter" option in 14.04. It can be run with the arguments: "left", "right", "up", "down", to further cut the quarter in eights.

The answer to show all key bindings in Ubuntu / Unity is: gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings | sort | more However Alt+F1 is not in there, meaning it's hard-coded in Unity and cannot be changed. (Sorry to be the harbinger of bad news)

I find that setting any of the above is overridden by the users last session stored by lightdm. You may have to remove or edit the user files at /var/cache/lightdm/dmrc to enable the global default setting. Or on an individual basis by editing the user.dmrc file that has the following contents: [Desktop] Session=ubuntu

Fn× handled by BIOS/Firmware. Some vendors provide a way to customize them with limited options. If you are comparing with MS Windows, some vendors supplies tools with their binary drivers that can talk to BIOS some how. CtrlAltF× are console keys that need to be handled in the early boot stage. Try January's answer in Change Default TTY ...

Below a script that switches through application windows. It remembers the last used (= frontmost) window of all running applications, bypassing other windows of the same application. The script is based on the same principle as the scripts here, but since the script only runs when a key combination is pressed, the last used window (per application) needs ...

I just had a black background with a mouse cursor. The following worked for me in addition to enabling the unity plugin again via ccsm, but first I had to do the following because it didn't even properly show the desktop: When doing unity --reset, it stopped at "show session" and some lines before it said "error loading plugin opengl", so i figured this ...

Do you like colored border?   Edit /usr/share/themes/Ambiance/gtk-3.0/apps/unity.css file and Comment their current background-color value (/* shade (@bg_color, 0.7); */) Then change the background-color to your favorite color(color with hex-code) in bottom, left and right (mine is #ff0080): UnityDecoration.bottom { background-image: ...

I was able to install Compiz Settings Manager from the Ubuntu Software Center and turn on Wobbly Windows. I admit, I just like it personally. If it interferees with any aspect of use, or slows it down, I'm unaware of it, and that's not just because of the speed of "my system", as this is a portable (pendrive type) ubuntu installation, and alternates ...

So you've sudo apt-get remove --purge lubuntu* and apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-destkop already, but some of the CCSM you did before are probably still lingering around.

For whoever is still seeing this problem... Adding the default keyboard layout for X11 solved the problem for me. Create the folloing file: /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-keyboard.conf With the correct keyboard layout (fr for me): Section "InputClass" Identifier "keyboard" MatchIsKeyboard "yes" Option "XkbLayout" "fr" Option "XkbVariant" ...

Got the same crazy issue but I found that it can be fixed by resetting the fonts to defaults using the Unity Tweak Tool. It's a available in the Software Center. I would like to know why it is doing this, though. I have to reset everything about once a week. :)

I solved the problem by installing **sudo apt-get install indicator-applet-complete**. All my indicators are then reappeared I de-installed and everything remained. Why is working? I do not know, probably the installation of it has made it possible to correct a corrupted or missing file. (maybe) :)

Unity team doesn't care about Compiz effects, and Unity's window decorator (introduced in 14.04) just breaks them. If you disable Unity plugin, most of these will work correctly.

I followed the directions in the accepted answer but it didn't help in my case (I'm also using Unity on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS). Interestingly, I also had somehow lost the Wifi indicator, and following a fix for that issue, found here: No wi-fi icon/ option in Ubuntu 14.04 ..also fixed the placement of the Dropbox icon.

For what it is worth, my experience with v3.18.1 and .2 kernels is that these seem to have problems with USB devices not being detected. Due to this I went back to 3.16 yesterday. I ran 3.13.0-24-generic before that. The ones I tried in between 3.13 and 3.16 all had issues of some kind (yes these were "official" updates!). 3.16 causes spotread from argyll ...

I read the "advice" given on that bugreport but I think it was wrong. You're not supposed to download one .deb package but 3, depending on the architecture.

The standard Ubuntu NVidia drivers generate some problems on slightly older and slightly newer NVidia hardware.
