Unfortunately, this doesn't work for Ubuntu 14.04. I changed the temperature-unit to "centigrade" via dconf-editor (and checked my change with "gsettings get"), rebooted the system, but the temperature is still displayed in Fahrenheit. Any ideas?

Opt + Tab will switch between windows of different applications running. CTRL + Tab will switch between windows within the same application. At least this is how it is running Ubuntu on my Macbook.

Change the notification's mouse- over behaviour Almost what you asked for, and possibly what you might like, a tiny, very light background script (no noticeable load to your system whatsoever, if no notification runs, it will only wait/check for one to appear) that will change the mouse-over effect of the notifications from fade: to disappear (close): ...

Instead of getting rid of all settings by coping only the data files to a new user, there is one more option to try first: rm /home/{affected user}/.config/dconf/user sudo service lightdm restart This gets rid of the unity-related settings only, and for most problems like this, it is enough to get you back to a working state. It worked for me and saved ...

I think you are missing about permission. So, you can make it executable: cd /home/mockie/softwares/PhpStorm-133.982/bin chmod +x phpstorm.sh Then, try create launcher again!

This is a bit of a catch22 if referring to the nautilus format option for removable media like flash drives. The option is there but will only show up if the drive is not mounted. However the default in nautilus is to automount drives when inserted & there is no unmount option once mounted. Yet again some nonsense from Gnome & ignored by Ubuntu. ...

Maybe I didn't purge(remove) the right package at the first place. As a result some gnome packages(from gnome-shell) were installed in my system and conflict with unity(theme). So I took the following steps. Remove all gnome packages sudo apt-get purge gnome-* It will also remove some applications and breaks unity. So to fix the side affect I reinstall ...

Purge the gnome-shell. ubuntu-gnome-desktop is only a meta package and removes nothing. After that, you should install Unity again, it could be broken.

I have been having the same problem with ubuntu 14.04 and Chrome. I have nvidia geforce gtx 650 graphics card. The problem seems indeed to be Ubuntu's nouveau graphics card driver.

The GNOME Headerbars are themed using the GTK+ Theme and Icon Set that you have applied on the desktop environment your using, so to change the theme and icons on GTK+ Headerbars, you'll need to use a Tweak Tool e.g: unity-tweak-tool to be able to change the theme. Once there, select a GTK Theme of your choice and the headerbars' look will change in rhythm ...

I posted a patch to LKML to work around this bug and was told that the issue had been identified as a libdrm (not Chrome) bug. https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=89842#c19 This issue is related to libdrm 2.40.6 only and from the link above there are other applications not, just Chrome that can encounter this same error with nouveau.

Removing ~/.gconf didn't fix it for me. I found that my particular case was probably due to a crash of upowerd. What I did to fix it: sudo apt-get install libimobiledevice-utils Unplug all USB devices (for me it was a headset, Windows Phone, and iPod) Reboot

A background script to make docky run on specific workspaces (or not) Based on exactly the same mechanism as this answer, below a background script that starts/stops the Docky launcher, depending on the current workspace.

You are missing the kernel-headers package which is a dependency for the nvidia Unified Driver module to be built. Install the kernel-headers package for your kernel version and reinstall the nvidia binary driver. dpkg-reconfigure should sort you out with the nvidia package after installing kernel headers.

I saw this a while back on my entirely-non-Ubuntu bleeding-edge-everything autobuilt LFS system (I am a weirdo with no life, I admit it).

The only easy way of doing this in Linux right now is using a virtual machine to try out KDE on. There are hard ways, including editing all .desktop files, compiling KDE from scratch, or installing a separate distro, but for what you want a virtual machine would be the best approach.

I've been going nuts over this just like you, but with Ubuntu 14.04 (LTS), Xubuntu, xfce 4.12 and xkbd (from xfce goodies).

Yes xfce is a pretty lightweight DE. If you want the whole Xubuntu package it might be best to back up your data and reinstall, otherwise install the xfce4 package via the software center or the command line with sudo apt-get install xfce4 and you should consider installing the xfce4-goodies package for a lot of helpful extras to really bring the best ...

Just run the following command in terminal: 'sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop' After the installation, reboot your PC and you should log in into XFCE. All your files and installed packages will be safe.

With the gnome-session-flashback, there are parts of it that use parts of Unity. So, not every part of Unity should be removed.
