Ubuntu :: 11.04 Unity Dash Menu Not Showing Search Results / Buttons Not Working

Apr 29, 2011

I've just upgraded to 11.04 and really like it so far, everything seems to be running smoothly and I had no issues apart from a broken Emerald which I removed (and installed compiz-gnome and then made gtk-window-decorator the default, which fixed Unity segfaulting on Emerald).

My problem now is that when I use the Unity dash to search for something, it takes a while to search and then finds nothing. I'm pretty sure I should have things like "text editor", "gimp", "update manager", so I would think this is some manner of bug.

In addition to that, the following buttons don't do anything if I click on them:

- Media Apps
- Internet Apps
- More Apps
- Find Files

Ubuntu :: Editing Right Click Menu In 1104 Classic?

May 2, 2011

As Unity have too much serious regressions to be usable desktop (I'll list some so maybe somebody could get an idea what to change for Ocelot 1110 edition):desktop switcher is obnoxious for somebody who is used to having 8-12 virtual desktops and to see in system tray what desktop is taken and what desktop is free. I do not see Pidgin icon in system tray anymore. And I hate (not dislike, but hate) Empathy, so I do not want to hear "Install Empathy". Have empathy for users who just want their apps in system tray! Launcher is bugged. I added Synaptic to it, place in launcher was taken, but there was no icon until restart. I added dconf-editor, there was no icon for it also after restart. weather applet is no more part of date/time tray indicator, but you can install it separately. Yes, you can install it separately, but you can not add your location, and that applet is not smart enough to read your old settings of weather and 1-5 locations for time zones should I go further? In short, 1104 is stable but default login (Unity) is not functional. It is better than M$ Vista which was not stable, but I expected that Ubuntu would adhere to higher standards than one shitty commercial company which wants only money of users and therefore rushed non-functional software to market.

My question (finally): In Ubuntu classic items I added to right click menu using nautilus-actions are not there anymore. They are still present in Nautilus, but not in desktop right-click menu. I googled a bit and found zilch, so I ask here. Please share how to do it (scripts folder is still there, but that would be regression to be unable to edit right click menu, FFS Ubuntu is not proprietary software so we would be helpless and could not tweak our favorite OS how we like it).

Ubuntu :: Get The Close / Max / Min / Title Into The Panel/global Menu In 11.04 Classic?

Jun 21, 2011

I had to finally give up Unity because my little netbook was running so slow. However, I loved the global menu because it freed some valuable screen space. In classic, I can't figure out how to get the close/max/min/title into the panel/global menu like it is default in Unity. Is there a way?

OpenSUSE :: Change GNOME Menu Back To Classic View?

Nov 11, 2010

I am wondering how you can change the view of the classic GNOME menu (Applications | Places | System) in 11.3 to the "classic" view (like in Fedora)? The Applications menu has to much sub-menus. I prefer it flat. The nautilus bookmarks are not directly accessible in Places either, which is not really comfortable.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Global Menu In "Classic" Mode

May 1, 2011

In the betas of Natty, all the way up to the final release almost, there was a global menu in "classic" mode. This is now gone in the final release and the old school layout is back. How can I get the global menu back in classic mode? I really liked it and would like to turn it back on.

Software :: May All Programs Be Classified Into These Two Categories?

Jun 11, 2011

A browser extension is a computer program that extends the functionality of a web browser in some way. Depending on the browser, the term may be distinct from similar terms such as plug-in or add-on. Mozilla Firefox was designed with the idea of being a small and simple web browser, delegating more advanced functions to Mozilla extensions.Question: may all programs be classified into these two categories?: Firefox plugins or extensions and external (to firefox) programs? If so, what of these two is the category into which gxine falls?I could, maybe, manage to make mplayer the default player for .pls files sent over internet by radio statios..

Debian :: Search Through Package Categories By Popularity?

Mar 30, 2011

I want to find some interesting games but the complete list looks a bit daunting. I can search the web for this information but what would be even better is if I could search a category in order of popularity. Is there a way to do this? Categories can be found here: [URL]

If not, is there a way I can find a list of packages in textlist format (like here: [URL]) for each category (rather than a complete list)?

Ubuntu :: Em Dash, Remapping Key Combinations?

Apr 16, 2010

I have this crazy idea to map an em dash to AltGr+Dash, replacing the yen symbol currently produced by that key combination. Is there a way to do that?

Unless, of course, there is another way to produce an em dash with the US International keyboard? Not including OpenOffice's autocorrect feature.

Ubuntu :: ESC Character In Dash Shell

Oct 21, 2010

when I try to enter an escape sequence in the interactive mode of dash, it keeps on spewing out the <ESC> character as ^[ displayed in plain text instead of catching it as a control character. I vaguely remember encountering this on some UNIX shell but for the life of me I can't find anything on it. So how do I properly enter escape sequences in dash's interactive mode? (it supposedly supports vi line edit mode but I can't access it at all because of the ESC situation)It's not a make-or-break thing.

Ubuntu :: Remove A Shortcut From Dash?

Sep 1, 2011

I have Ubuntu 11.04, upgraded from 10.10, and I'm logging into the default Ubuntu, Unity. In Dash, if I search for "firefox", I get three results:

Firefox Web Browser
Mozilla Firefox
Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode)

Clicking Firefox Web Browser brings up Firefox just fine. But both Mozilla Firefoxes do nothing. I have a feeling that they're left over from Wine, but I'm not sure. The Uninstall Wine Software program doesn't show Firefox, but I may have uninstalled it through there a long time ago.

I want to remove these shortcuts from Dash. I tried checking the Main Menu program, but Mozilla Firefox isn't in there (though Firefox Web Browser is). I looked in /usr/share/menu/, and found a file called "firefox". That file specifies a title of "Firefox Browser", so I'm not sure if it even applies. The command it gives, "/usr/bin/firefox", is good, anyway. I don't see any other firefox related file there.

So, does anyone know how I remove those shortcuts from Dash?

Ubuntu :: Natty - What Is New About Unity New Look Dash

Mar 4, 2011

I have read about it, looked at screen shots of it but I don't think Unity runs on a virtual machine yet so I have not laid hands on it. Still it looks to me like a remake of the old Windows 3.x "program groups" concept (at least it was called something like that back before the fall of the Roman empire). Looks like a waste of space to me to have all the program and file icons in a box instead of tucked out of the way along a panel.

Ubuntu :: Navigating Folders In Unity Dash

May 2, 2011

I upgraded to 11.04 with pretty much no issues. But, I do have one: When I opened "Files and Folders" in Dash and clicked on a .jpg image, a GNOME-looking dialogue popped up asking me which program I wanted to use to displayed the image. So, I went to make sure that opening an image on my desktop had the correct results. It did, and opens in Eye of Gnome. I messed up and made a typo, and now when I try to click on ANY folder or file in Dash, it says that it can't find the program "E" (which was my mistake/typo/whatever/I didn't finish typing and had a twitch or something xD). I cannot figure out how to set Dash to open [x file] with [x program].

Ubuntu :: Dash Complains (Not A Folder) Error

May 2, 2011

Starting today, I have a new problem with "Files & Folders". No matter what file I click on, I get the same error message. For example, "Could not display "/work/photos/2011/March_LA/DSC_1585.JPG" The location is not a folder." Of course it's not a folder, since it is obviously an image file. If I navigate to this same file via Nautilus and double-click, it is opened properly. Is there some way to reset everything Unity back to some sort of default state? The only thing I did recently was to uninstall Thorin (XFCE file manager) which I had previously said to use for folders selected in the Dash. By the way, actual folders now work fine (and come up in Nautilus), but it now thinks everything is a folder. It doesn't make any difference what kind of file (.JPG, .mp4, .gnumeric,...) always the same "not a folder" error.

Ubuntu :: CR48 11.04 Custom Keyboard Shortcut For Dash?

Jun 23, 2011

I just installed Ubuntu on my cr-48 laptop and i wanted to map the Search button to open the Unity Dash. It was initally mapped to it, but when I tried to map some of the function keys to control volume and screen brightness it changed it when I imported the Cr-48 keyboard using keytouch.When I go into the System Settings> Keyboard Shortcuts I've tried to add a custom shortcut but I don't know what command to put into the prompt when I make it so that the Unity Dash will open. At the moment all the special keys (forward, backward, refresh, backlight, and volume) are working like i want them to, its just the search button i want to change.

I have just recently installed Linux Lime along with windows 7 Home Premium. Before, there would be a menu asking me which operating system I would like to use.

This is normal as it does that for a second then boots. Now its stuck on that flashing dash on a black screen and won't boot.
