Weirdly this does not happen for me. I can run git gui from a command line, but typing in the Dash does not show it as an option

Nope this doesn't work for me either in ubuntu 14.04. I had it working fine (without this trick) in 13.10....no idea what went wrong

I did all of this, but it didn't help - I didn't understand your last paragraph that using 'xscreensaver -nosplash' depends on what you have in the desktop file. I have it in both...it worked until 13.10 but now in 14.04 it no longer works

comment The XScreenSaver daemon doesn't seem to be running on “:0”
Hi there - I had everything working up through 13.10, but now in 14.04 the startup entry is no longer working. The Output from the thing @Danatela asked for (for me) is: " 11317 ? 00:00:00 xscreensaver" Don't know if that helps

I can try Package->Force version in Synaptic but that will delete a bunch of packages....is that a good thing to do?
