comment Nautilus not generating thumbnails in 13.10
Here's a rather accurate solution for 13.10 and all past versions: askubuntu.com/a/179107/17065 Note the change in path from '.thumbnails' to '.cache/thumbnails'

This was my solution in ubuntu 13.10. I don't remember having this problem in ubuntu 12.04.

This package isn't available for debian wheezy, or for suacy (13.10). I'm trying to remember when the migration happened for ubuntu... but they migrated from installing 32 bit packages this way.

I spent some time and recompiled it myself for 5.20. I've posted my answer below, since it wasn't quite as straight forward as I imagined: askubuntu.com/a/395031/17065

Regarding the terminal suggestions, what happens if you 'ctrl+alt+f1', and try the commands there?

comment How do I get a RoseWill rk-8100 keyboard working?
FWIW: it's generally a bad idea to download scripts and then run them. Please read the script before running it. Or better yet, read it and run the commands inside yourself.

It looks like the current version of unity is 5.20, and your version is 5.14. I'm using 12.04, so a custom build seems to be my only option. Thanks for outlining this. If you don't have time to do the build, maybe I'll try it.

Restarting firefox is actually required (even though it seemed like I shouldn't have to).

comment Using Compiz by default in Unity 2D
Other places have suggested to use !(state=maxvert & state=maxhorz) instead, since that will activate it only for fully maximized windows, instead of partially ones
