comment Hide program title from ubuntu unity menubar
I see. It is currently not possible to prevent displaying the name in the launcher. I can imagine it would be(-come) a setting option in "Appearance" as far as it concerns the Launcher (also updated the answer).

@Serg I am not sure I understand what you mean :) I mean to say: "You cannot have a nameless .desktop file, which is (still) considered to be a correct one" .

What is exactly the reason for not showing the application name?

comment Can ~/.local/share/applications override /usr/share/applications?
@donniezazen something to keep in mind with locally edited .desktop files is that they are not updated if an application is updated (including the global .desktop file), but not the local one. Chrome is famous for that, resulting in duplicate icons.

@donniezazen Ah, then it should be fine. In most cases, if you really mess up a .desktop file, simply remove it log, out/in and things are as they were before.

I am afraid you will need internet one way or the other. No ethernet?

Also, are you able to, although handicapped, run all updates?

This is most likely a video driver issue. Do you have an external screen connected?
