If you have upgraded from Ubuntu GNOME 17.04 the default GNOME session(s) will still remain for you to choose during login.

You have enabled the ScreenReader in GNOME, that's all. To disable the Screen Reader start Universal Access and click Screen Reader.

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 ...

sudo apt install ppa-purge For the next step the PPA has to be active. sudo ppa-purge ppa:system76/pop This removes packages from this PPA if they are not available from Ubuntu repositories, or reverts to Ubuntu package versions.

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....

Land here from a google search. In my setup there most of the gnome stuff if not used and in the gnome-control-center there were a lot of speech-dispatcher processes as well.

Finally I fixed this issue by installing Nvidia driver. Details: For days I have been frustrated by not only the issue mentioned above, but also significantly longer boot time (from 20s to around 60s) ,and frequently hanging shutdown process.

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 ...

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 ...

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.
