comment Ubuntu 14.04 System freezes on wakeup from suspended state
IMPORTANT WORKAROUND (at least I find it a major relief!): After suspending using sudo pm-suspend, the system wakes up perfectly! I refuse to work with a computer which doesn't work without suspend so this is a golden workaround for me.

I have the exact same problem. I have switched from 12.10 32-bit to 14.04 64-bit, FWIW.

I don't see "panel" under desktop->unity?! Using Ubuntu 12.10.

comment Is there a way to prevent alt-tab from raising all windows of an application?
I'm on 12.04 LTS, but apparently, it seems to work the way I wanted it to. I'm sorry that it's not the way you want the WM to work, but if you add an answer "fixed in the meantime in 12.04 (and possibly newer)", I'll accept it as you basically drew my attention to the fact that it was, in fact, fixed in the meantime.

Have you managed to solve the problem? I just ran into it and could use some guidance.

This looks like an awful lot of work to enable something which worked so simply for years before... :\

comment How do you select an arbitrary application to “open with”?
I have nor the the mimeinfo.cache nor the defaults.list: the only file I have in that folder is mimeapps.list...I would say we're probably using different versions of Ubuntu.

While I am grateful for the advice, I'm using 11.10 and Unity, so I don't think these instructions would help me.

@izx Indeed, this is an exact duplicate.

I don't think we understand each other. I don't care much about the icons or window preview: what I want is to be able to switch back and forth between a specific gvim and Firefox window, without having to see all the other gvim windows in front of Firefox every time I switch back to any gvim window.

Thanks for the suggestion, maythux, but I often work with tens of open windows (not a problem under Gnome 2, my environment of choice before) so it's not a practical option.

Doesn't seem to have any effect on my machine. :\

comment How do I set the computer to suspend when battery is critically low?
In an ideal world, maybe. I would LOVE it if I could configure my machine to suspend when it falls below e.g. 15% of the battery (easily enough for several hours in suspend) because as it is, I can only configure it to shutdown (which kind of guarantees you lose data) or hibernate (which is completely broken on my machine). So here's to unnecessary constraints...
