Ubuntu Dock doesn't seem to be installed, you can verify it by running apt-cache policy gnome-shell-extension-ubuntu-dock There should be an Installed: (none) line in the output. If so, you may install it by running the following command in Terminal: sudo apt install gnome-shell-extension-ubuntu-dock If Ubuntu Dock is installed and you still don't find ...

If you have upgraded from Ubuntu GNOME 17.04 the default GNOME session(s) will still remain for you to choose during login. On top of that the all-new GNOME session(s) customised by Ubuntu (simply named Ubuntu and/or Ubuntu on Xorg) will be added. Ubuntu dock setting is accessible only from the GNOME session(s) customised by Ubuntu, not from the default ...

I think you have similar case to mine. As Ubuntu forked gnome-control-center, you may have both already installed after upgrade.

This issue might be caused by issues during the upgrade. Try reinstalling Ubuntu dock: sudo apt purge gnome-shell-extension-ubuntu-dock sudo apt install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop This may or may not repair things that apparently went wrong during the upgrade.

For Gnome Ubuntu: Set $XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP to GNOME and you're good to go: XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=GNOME gnome-control-center For Unity Ubuntu: Set $XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP to Unity and you're good to go: XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=Unity unity-control-center

Introduction Sadly, there is no official Google Drive client yet. I'm assuming you want to access your Google Drive as a local folder. TLDR: Use a Fuse FS implementation to mount your Google Drive locally. This site explains it better than I possibly can, but I'll write the minor instructions in case the link goes down.

You have enabled the ScreenReader in GNOME, that's all. To disable the Screen Reader start Universal Access and click Screen Reader. You can see four entries in Sound, because there are four processes % ps xa | grep -P 'speech-dispatcher.*\.conf' 14520 tty2 Sl+ 0:00 /usr/lib/speech-dispatcher-modules/sd_generic /etc/speech-dispatcher/modules/generic....

Using GTKInspector I was able to zero in on the "zebra striping" and track it down to the following lines for the Ambiance theme (which I use and like) in /usr/share/themes/Ambiance/gtk-3.20/gtk-widgets.css: .view row:nth-child(odd):not(:selected) { /* zebra stripping, see LP#945430 */ background-color: shade (@base_color, 0.965); Having a ...

If you want to remove every configuration about your network, you can reinstall the packages that has anything to do with whatever you have touched, examples: If you only touched the /etc/network* files, the easy way to go is purging the packages and reinstall them again (you should download separatelly the package): dpkg -S /etc/network avahi-autoipd, ...

If you are running other environments than Gnome, the icons are invisible due to a directive in Gnome's desktop files. See /usr/share/applications/gnome*panel.desktop and search in the files for the line OnlyShowIn=GNOME; You could remove this line or append your environment to the list. The possible values are listed here: http://standards....

I also had the same problem i found out that it is because of join display enabled in the display settings So what i did is changed the dock position to left using gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock dock-position LEFT Now the settings window would show up From there you can go to Devices->Displays and change display mode to single ...

Background Even though the OP stated the following does not work on his machine, it DID work on my laptop... "I think this is different from ubuntu-dock settings not accessible in gnome-control-center by default because changing the type of GNOME session doesn't fix the problem. If I go for GNOME* I get no Dock settings section at all, and if I got for ...

First check whether Settings (aka gnome-control-center) is installed. You may run apt-cache policy gnome-control-center If the output contains Installed: (none) install gnome-control-center by running sudo apt install gnome-control-center Otherwise this package may be corrupted. In that case purge gnome-control-center first and reinstall again.

You can try to reinstall the package containing libgoa-backend-1.0.so.1.0.0: sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgoa-backend-1.0-1 According to your ldd output you have some strange libraries: /usr/local/lib/libatk-1.0.so.0 /usr/local/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0 /usr/local/lib/libgmodule-2.0.so.0 You should move them out the way: mkdir ~/usr_local_lib sudo mv /...

I have had the bug report suggestions setup this way for along time as sound is always routed to TV and I don't want it to switch to tinny laptop speakers.

Downloaded the deb file from here http://pkgs.org/ubuntu-12.10/ubuntu-main-amd64/libgnome-control-center1_3.4.2-0ubuntu19_amd64.deb.html Works like a charm now

I know this is an old answer, but I ran into it while googling the same issue -- you can restore items to the gnome-control-center or unity-control-center when under xfce by going to /usr/share/applications/ and editing the *-panel.desktop files, adding ";XFCE" to the "OnlyShowIn" line. I recommend doing this for the gnome-bluetooth-panel.desktop and the ...

I guess the main issue here (past all the social nonsense) is one user can affect another. This is a technical situation that Linux has been fairly good at preventing for a fairly long time. The fact this is a problem suggests to me that you're not actually providing these people with their own logins, going for a single-user method. That's a major issue in ...

You have to download the source: apt-get source gnome-control-center and gnome-control-center-data Go into the source/panel directory. Replace UbuntuLogo.png and check inside config files inside that directory. Don't forget info.gresource.xml because if you miss one reference to the correct new icon it won't work. Two other locations within sources ...

Unfortunately the window size of the GNOME sound settings is hard-coded and can not be changed. It will adapt its size according to the length of display for a chosen audio sink. To overcome this we can use a custom name (device.description) for the rather lengthy combined sink to not list all slaves we had used. Rather than by running paprefs we create ...

I'll complement the answers above with an explanation to why this happens when you're using i3wm. When you install and use i3 as your windows manager, i3 automatically sets the current desktop variable to i3. You can check it by doing: echo $XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP Which returns i3 Ubuntu native programs do not work well if this environmental variable is set ...

Problem you're having is that there is a Unity online account manager installed in 16.04 by default. (Several mentions of this in the comments led me to figure out how to make it work...) You can add the Gnome online account manager, but if you don't remove the Unity online account manager first you won't get the Gnome online account options even if you ...

Ubuntu 15.10 still comes with Gnome 3.16 by default. GNOME 3.18 is the one that will be released (at the time of this writing) with Ubuntu GNOME 16.04, and gnome-control-center is directly backported from 16.04 on the GNOME 3 Staging PPAs with the Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 logo patched into it at build time.

Restarting your session will kill all of your programs and start your desktop environment again. It's basically logging out and in from your "account". If you do it, all the unsaved work will be lost, so make sure you save everything you're working on.

I solved my problem this way: First I setup my monitors configuration in gnome-control-center display Then I saved, and applied the changes. So I ran xrandr -q to get my current configuration. Something like this: Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1980, maximum 8192 x 8192 LVDS1 connected 1600x900+0+1080 (normal left inverted right x axis ...
