I'm a developer at PayPal, working mostly in Java and Apache Pig.

I'm also the maintainer of the pig-eclipse project, and the creator/maintainer of the pig syntax highlighting scheme for gedit.

I'm an Ubuntu user both at home and at work.

Editors running in up-to-date versions of Ubuntu will probably be using gtksourcceview-3.0 .. so look for a directory with 3.0, not 2.0 as in the answer above.

Was this problem fixed? I didn't notice it on 13.10 or 14.04, but I do see it in 12.04. Anyone know whether it's been fixed for 12.10 or 13.04?

In Gnome Ubuntu 13.04, Emma crashes often for me. I moved to using Eclipse SQLExplorer as an Eclipse plugin.

@kingmilo I'm unmounting from the GUI. No Disk Utility installed, I think - does the package have another name?

comment Can I add a shortcut in xubuntu to make a top panel (one with window buttons) appear on the screen even if in fulscreen mode?
Interesting. For me it opens the same menu as a right click would, wherever the mouse pointer happens to be.

That opens a menu, but not the "Application Menu" that's normally in the top left corner. Do you happen to know how to open that one?
