The tooltip that appears when you mouseover applications in the launcher sometimes goes missing or doesn't show the application name correctly. Is it possible to repair this problem?

This is the screenshot of my problem.



This is a known bug: Bug #1034164 : [SRU Regression] Unity 5.14 + Nux 2.14: Launcher tooltips are incomplete/missing

The ppa ppa:unity-team/sru contains a fix.

  • how to add the repository for this bug – aji Aug 26 '12 at 7:30

To add that to repositories:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:unity-team/sru

and then:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Worked like a charm for me...

  • Note: unity-team/sru are unsupported packages and can potentially cause undesired effects. – Sly Oct 1 '12 at 23:14
