I ran into the same problem yesterday after updating. I haven't been able to fix it, but I figured out a way to avoid it, by using i3 as my GUI instead of the the one that comes standard with Ubuntu. https://i3wm.org/docs/repositories.html

Ok, update. Have something working using lightdm-gtk-greeter instead of unity-greeter (which hung at login). Thanks to the poster for mentioning he got it to work with lightdm-gtk-greeter or I probably would not have tried another. Here are the steps I used to get the multi-monitor control login-screen fully working -- even though it's not working with ...

You need to disable the ccsm "window decoration" as it conflicts with the newest unity plugin. Also, you need to enable the unity plugin in ccsm. When using unity, all you need to do is click and drag down from the top panel to grab a window to move it. I have found that alt button1 is a good option for the move plugin that works. Just press alt and hold ...

The answer was graciously provided in the comments. This only happens when Nautilus is already running. So the warning messages amount to nothing more than the obvious fact that nautilus can't be started because it's already been started. To quit nautilus with nautilus -q and then to start it with nautilus . will cleanly open the current directory folder ...

As solution 0 stated, I did not have that export line in ~/.profile. Further, .config/compiz-1 was an empty subdir. Renaming, or deleting that subdirectory creates a new one. However, selecting autohide to yes, breaks the system....this solution above is a recovery of the launcher, not a fix for autohide.

I experienced the same issue and don't really know much about Ubuntu but doing the opposite of this here, fixed it for me: Enable Low Graphics Mode So, to expand a little on the solution. Here are the original steps (from the link above) to enable the low graphics mode. You would instead disable it by setting UNITY_LOW_GFX_MODE=0. There is an ...

Unfortunately I do not have the reputation to comment, but Patola's solution worked for me with one slight change: dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ setsid compiz should be dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ setsid compiz --replace

I'm running Ubuntu under VirtualBox V5.0.24 on macOS 10.11.6 My ~/.profile did not have the export line. However, the rename of ~/.config/compiz-1 worked for me as well. I did some experiments and found that just trashing ~/.config/compiz-1/compizconfig/config resolved the problems on my setup. Shortly after trashing that file the menu bar and launcher ...

I found the same thing from updating today. Finally found that in ~/.profile there was a line: export UNITY_LOW_GFX_MODE="1" If you press ctrl+n on the desktop it'll show your home folder, then ctrl+h will show hidden files. Open ~/.profile then remove or comment out export UNITY_LOW_GFX_MODE="1". I also removed my Unity config (I renamed /home/huw/....

This worked for me but in reverse. I uninstalled the global menu components via sudo apt-get remove indicator-appmenu. I then had the problem described above when my windows where in full screen mode. By checking "Displayed in the menu bar" and "Displayed on mouse hovering" in "System settings -> Appearance -> Behavior" my tile bar information is now ...

Workaround: I tried almost all desktop environments and KDE Plasma was the one that finally worked properly. No more click/focus problems. Ps. this desktop GUI feels really nice.

To test Unity 8, it requires Mir support, which is currently only partially implemented in the proprietary Nvidia drivers and at this time not enough to run Unity 8 / Mir properly.

I had the same problem. In unity tweak tool panel I set to max transparency and in CCSM I also have Opacity 0.0000 and panel is still not fully transparent. However I found solution here: http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2013/08/transparent-panel-titlebar-ubuntu-unity/ In CCSM aside panel opacity also background opacity must be set to 1 and not 0.

If you use installer to install the Eclipse, give it an appropriate directory like /opt.

The accepted answer is alright, but cumbersome due to use of sed and lots of escape sequences. The bellow pythonic solution is much cleaner, and allows simply specify what .desktop file you want appended, and optionally you can specify a position on the launcher. For example, python launcher_append_item.py sakura.desktop 3 would place sakura as 4th ...

By moving themes or after download extracting and placing in the /usr/share/themes directory is one simple way to install themes on your system, while doing this you need to root permission as you are trying to install theme package on system. To uninstall any theme you just have to remove the folder of that theme: sudo rm -r "name of theme folder"


4

Yes, it is. All the themes that are to be used by all users in a system are placed in the /usr/share/themes folder as subfolders. So, the only thing you have to do is copy the theme folder in there as root. The folder name will be the theme name you see in Appearance. In case you don't see it in Appearance, make sure the correct permissions are given in ...

By far the easiest solution is to open PhpStorm, where it will show in the launcher. Then right click on it in the launcher and select "Lock to Launcher" and your done.

I finally found the solution on this page: this worked for me: rm -rf ~/.config/compiz-1/compizconfig/*

There is no way to add an authentication step to "switch to workspace". So, you cannot do what you asked. However, you could lock your screen, and let your guest use a Guest session - no password, only civilian access, vanishes at logout.

Couldn't find any other options. Only way I could find was to recompile Unity. At least it is straight forward. Credit goes to the guys here. sudo apt-get build-dep unity cd /tmp #It can be done somewhere else, feel free to change the base location. mkdir unity cd unity apt-get source unity Now the file you're looking for is /tmp/unity/unity-7.3.2/...

I had the same problem and I do not know why it stopped working. Check if you can install wayland session. sudo apt-get install gnome-session-wayland After that in login screen you can select "GNOME on wayland". It resolved my problem and at this moment I didn't see any difference in use.

Not a complete answer yet; but somehow a workaround, although not a real good one: I found that when I use the "Display" settings and first disable my two external monitors, and then re-enable them ... one of the external monitors will have the "icon section" in the top bar. But unfortunately this doesn't survive a reboot.

Thanks for the answers!! The logo was definitely not on the image in the first place. It seems the problem is that when you find a picture on the net and right click on it and choose 'Set as desktop background' then Ubuntu adds automatically his logo on it. Because when I followed the instructions given here meaning I go to Appearance and change it from ...

What you call Gnome welcome icon is actually called plymouth. You can change its settings via update-alternatives command.

GUI quicklist editor Combining (commands to start-) applications is one of the options of QLE Unity Quicklist Editor.

This doesn't seem like it would be possible to me, the reason being that in Windows the menu bars are in the app window and cannot be integrated into the OS. Since Wine just runs the Windows app in a container, the only way I can see to integrate the menus is to actually port the app to Linux and cut out Wine.

One suggestion is to try xscreensaver: sudo apt-get install xscreensaver On my own system I have had more reliable power saving / powering down / blanking with this application.

First press Alt + F2 and type in gnome-terminal. This is the normal command to start terminal. If the terminal doesn't start then again press Alt + F2 and type in gksu nautilus. Next, enter your password and move to usr and search for terminal and set it to executable.

The problem was my mouse, the Mad Catz MMO 7.

Go into whatever terminal you are using and, Run "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade" then "sudo apt-get unity ubuntu-desktop" then sudo apt-get install -f" to fix dependencies. Then reboot.

Although it's a really old post, I thought of leaving the solution I found after searching for quite a while. Set the Text Scaling Factor to something different from 1.0 (1.01 worked for me) and leave Antialiasing set to Rgba. I did this using the unity-tweak-tool.

If you can find a terminal command(s) that will give you the status of CAPS/NUM/SCROLL lock, you could install indicator-sysmonitor and add custom script which obtains the status information (using the aformentioned terminal command(s)). Refer to this answer and follow the trail.

Probably the effective locale for the LC_TIME locale category is one which misses AM/PM specification. To fix it you can change the Regional Formats setting. If you change it to e.g. English (United States) or English (United Kingdom), AM/PM will show up next time you log in.

It is reasonably straightforward to toggle this setting from the clock settings. (Note: I realise that you have already followed this path but best to check.)
