comment Gnome-terminal in Ubuntu Unity shrinks to minimum size
ALT+T does nothing. If pressed after creating the window and it's shrinking, nothing changes. If pressed after the window is at its minimum size, nothing happens.

comment Gnome-terminal in Ubuntu Unity shrinks to minimum size
In the process of filing a bug, ubuntu-bug -w reported that the package, gnome-terminal, had a dependency on a local library, /local/usr/local/lib/libexpat.so.1.6.0. I searched and found: -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 165280 Oct 21 2014 /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libexpat.so.1.6.0 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 166000 Oct 21 2014 /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libexpat.so.1.6.0 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 545601 Jul 12 2013 /local/usr/local/lib/libexpat.so.1.6.0 So, I deleted the local one, but the problem persists.

comment Gnome-terminal in Ubuntu Unity shrinks to minimum size
Well...what is it? Where is it? I looked under the Appearance icon, and didn't find anything relevant. None of the other icons appear to be relevant.

comment upgrade from 14.10 to 15.04 stuck
JdeBP- yes, it's similar. I saw that one before I posted mine. There are no details in the other post about where the installation is stalled, nor any of the console output. Also, mine doesn't have anything to do with ctrl-shift. The problem in Question 600421 was caused by a mis-use of sudo. That person did a sudo to execute the command, but the output redirection happened outside of sudo, so it failed to write the cache file. I executed the entire command as root, including the redirection. That still didn't cause the installation process to get un-stuck.

comment Desktop shows a white or black background instead of wallpapers
Couldn't find ubuntu-tweak-tool. I found unity-tweak-tool. Is that what you meant? It has the System/Desktop Icons tab, but switching it on (and off) didn't bring the wallpaper back.-(
