comment Disable auto-opening nautilus window after auto-mount
This doesn't work in Gnome-Shell. It still pops-up that notification asking to "Open with Files" or "Eject" or "Open with music player", etc.

comment bluetooth headset connects but not showing in sound settings
@Tim, You don't fix a flat tire by putting a piece of scotch tap over the hole... This issue recently re-emerged for me in 14.04, and even this no longer "fixes" it. If we knew the underlying problem, we could find a better solution.

comment Brightness not working after installing NVIDIA driver
@ElderGeek, Unfortunately, Nouveau doesn't support suspend/resume, making it useless for a laptop, which is a shame because it was otherwise better than the Nvidia driver. I upgraded to 14.04 and the Nvidia 340 driver, and now screen dimming works.

This is awesome. I can't believe I tolerated that horrible multi-window nonsense for all these years...

comment How to disable sticky edges in Ubuntu 13.04
Holy crap this actually worked. Thanks. The accepted answer does nothing. This should be the accept answer.

comment How to disable sticky edges in Ubuntu 14.04 (Ubuntu 13.10 and earlier had a Option for On/Off Mouse Stickiness)
This doesn't work. I have it set to "off" and it still "sticks" on the edge between my monitors. It's infuriating.

comment How do I disable mouse magnet on middle edge with multi monitors?
Thank you. This thing was driving me insane. Why would anyone invent such a horrible feature?!

comment Disable unity sidebar but still use dash with superkey
Unfortunately, with dual-monitors, Unity still renders a "sticky" monitor border to catch the sidebar activitation, even if it's set to nothing. This makes using Unity with dual monitors really annoying because your mouse will get "stuck" on the monitor edges.

comment Disable unity sidebar but still use dash with superkey
This is the exact opposite of why the OP asked for. This disables superkey but keeps the horrible sidebar.

comment Disable unity sidebar but still use dash with superkey
There doesn't seem to be an "experimental" tab in 14.04.

@Wilf, Also, I've updated my question with a list of my graphics packages.

comment Unable to login to Gnome-Shell in Ubuntu 14.04
@Wilf, Neither a new user nor guest can login to gnome-shell either. Unfortunately, I don't remember what packages were updated. I gave the list a quick glance, and none of them seemed critical, which is why I didn't bother remembering them. I would have taken note if the kernel or nvidia driver was being updated.

comment Autoconnecting Bluetooth Devices
Thanks, the first solution worked for me on Ubuntu 14.04. Although note, you still need to run sudo service pulseaudio restart or reboot to make the change take effect.

comment How can I restart pulseaudio without logout?
For me --check didn't show anything, even though -k stopped audio playback, implying pulseaudio was running.

comment Desktop never loads when using I Nvidia drivers
@Zacharee1, Thanks. Unfortunately, I figured it out myself before I saw your comment, but that sounds like a good suggestion. I had previously tried sudo dpkg-reconfigure xorg without success.
