comment Desktop shortcuts display incorrectly if the “Name” property is not first in the “Desktop Entry” group
SIGH. Now I can't even repeat the problem. Now that I got it into a state where it was displaying correctly, now it won't display INcorrectly. Very strange.

Hmm. I don't see a way to set the project, but I can add attachments.

Ok, I had just finished submitting a ticket, but I didn't know what project to set it for: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntu-meta/+bug/1576446 . I'll see if I can edit it and change the project, and attach those files.

comment Alt key works on Ubuntu 14.04 VM, ignored on 15.10 VM
For what it's worth, I also tested this on a 16.04 VM, and it does not occur. It's only happening on the 15.10 VM.

comment Started tightvncserver on Ubuntu, but viewer complains about missing .xsession file
I updated with the contents of the log. In addition to the log file, there's a "passwd" file with an apparently encoded value, and a "xstartup" script that runs "/etc/X11/Xsession" at the last step. Concerning whether I need additional packages, I suppose I can't say, but the vnc server isn't complaining about anything, it's just the client that is failing. I see X-related apps in /usr/bin, so it would seem like all of the non-headless stuff is there.
