comment how to enable secure boot after the installation
there is no problem with efi-grub.... grub is installed as efi capable and system boots up with efi mode (CSM diasbled)...and I can use both kubuntu OSes and Windows 8.1 ...problem occurs when I trun on the secure boot option, I don't know where is the error...bios os the efi-grub...visual bios says signature error and it leads to windows straight without displaying the grub :(

comment how to enable secure boot after the installation
@bodhi.zazen thanks for your comment. yes secure boot and efi (or uefi) are two things (actually secure boot is a feature of efi which keeps windows secure) and I can also turn off secure boot and efi mode (secure boot depends on efi mode) in my bios. also it is possible to convert a regular linux installation to a efi capable installation :)

comment Full Transparent (glass type) menu for ubuntu 14.04
@Mateo thanks for the link :) I just want to know if it is possible to have blur in indicator-menus...transparency makes everything transparent (including menu text) but it is not what I expect...

@Naveen Yes!, That is what inspired me to create this concept design...as this one is much familiar with unity than the one in that link, also it is an old post, (2012!)
