When I right-click on an application's icon on the launcher, and select "Lock to launcher", the contextual menu never disappears. Despite that, pressing escape to get out of the menu and then closing the application does not remove the icon, suggesting to me that it "worked".
But on the other hand, when I do the same for "Unlock from launcher", the icon still remains. I don't have a way to remove the icon after it's been locked to the launcher.
Additionally, when I click-and-hold an icon for 2 seconds to move the icon, the icon appears to follow/be anchored to the cursor to allow me to move it. However, subsequently clicking the mouse anywhere does not release the icon to be moved; instead I have to right-click or press escape to cancel.
I'm sure you can imagine my frustration at this. Please help.
I have tried:
- Is it possible to permanently lock launcher icons?
- I can not move icons in Unity Launcher.
- How do I clean up my dconf database?
...but of course I still am unable to lock or move icons or I wouldn't be here. Any thoughts on what I might be doing wrong or how to figure out what's broken?
Are there error or message logs I can look at? Are there specific executables or permissions I can look at? What configuration files are related to the applications here?
