Ubuntu :: Application Lauch Commands In Unity?

Jul 28, 2011

Back in the good old days of Gnome it was easy to know what commands were executed when an icon was clicked. By editing the application menus one could navigate the tree and check it at each application properties window. The question is: how can that be made with Unity?

Knowing the commands executed for LibreOffice applications, for instance, would be very useful, so I can create shortcuts with XBindKeys. Another thing that one could configure at the application properties window was the icon.

Ubuntu :: Edit Docky Commands Without Switching To Unity?

Aug 7, 2011

I have been using docky lately (its a great app!) and I am just wondering if there is some way I can make it show all windows in an expose-like format if multiple windows are open, just like the Unity launcher.
Is there any way I can achieve this without switching to Unity?

Ubuntu :: Can't Find Application In Unity

May 10, 2011

I just updated to 11.04 today after deciding I couldn't just read about Unity anymore and wanted to experience it for myself. I'll save my thoughts for the Experiences forum; suffice to say that so far I think that it's organized and, for the most part, intuitive.

That said, I am having a problem finding an application that I know is installed. I use Crossover Games to run Steam, and though Steam is running just fine (just played a quick game of TF2 to make sure) I cannot for the life of me find Crossover. In 10.10, it was under Applications > Games. In Unity, it will not show up no matter how I search for it (Steam, however, does with no issues). I have searched for Crossover, codeweaver, cross, code, games, etc, to no avail.

Any tips or comments on how I may find this application? It shows up in my Installed Software in Software Center even!

Ubuntu :: Application Launcher With Multiple Commands

Jan 27, 2011

I created a application launcher (type:terminal) to replace the index.php on my apache server (/var/www/) with the index I keep updated on my desktop.

This is the exact script I'm using on the launcher:

My idea was the launcher would delete the current file at /var/www/, and then copy the file on /home/andre/Desktop.

But its not behaving properly, it is deleting both the file in my /var/www/ AND my desktop.

Ubuntu :: Adding Indicators To Unity's Top/Application Panel?

May 1, 2011

I like Unity, and I appreciate Canonical's work in making the desktop cleaner-looking and more intuitive.I think that being able to customize the top/application(?) panel would be very powerful. By this, I mean both adding and removing indicators.I guess the developers are aware of this, and it's easier said than done. I don't know.Personally, I miss the weather and CPU temperature applets of the old Gnome layout.I tried to apply the best guide I've found to modifying the top panel, to no avail.

After I followed the instructions for the addition of three different indicators (weather, cpu frequency and CPU and RAM % usage), my top panel remained the same.I don't know whether the indicators should show up right away or only upon restart. I did restart, though.For both the weather and CPU frequency indicators, the terminal said:Failed to fetch gzip:/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/fr.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_natty_main_sour ce_Sources Hash Sum mismatchI don't know how to get around this

Ubuntu :: Change Width Or Size Of Application Launcher In Unity?

Apr 30, 2011

I just started the latest Ubuntu and like Unity a lot but I have a question about the application launcher.I have added a few applications to this launcher but the problem is it now takes up more than the screen. It seems if I scroll through it I can have it scroll down to use more applications.What I'd like to do is either make the application icons smaller so that they can all fit on the screen without me having to scroll or either make it wider so that there can be two vertical rows of application icons.Are there any options to do this or make any other changes to the application launcher?

Ubuntu :: Unity Application Search Results Include Non-working Shortcuts?

Jul 12, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 11.4. I've played with different versions of Picasa, installing the Linux version via Ubuntu Software Center and also using Wine. At a certain point I had several versions of the application installed and things were getting. When I search for Picasa in the Unity application search field (clicking the button with the dot in the centre at the top left of my screen) I got several results for Picasa, some of which when clicked would start Picasa and some which wouldn't. When I remove all versions of Picasa both from Wine and native I still get some results for Picasa which don't start Picasa when clicked.

Ubuntu :: Chromium Application Shortcuts In Unity - Not Including Most Of Chromium's Toolbars

May 2, 2011

I often use the option in Chromium to create 'application shortcuts'. These are instances of Chromium that make a website look more like an app by not including most of Chromium's toolbars. I use it for gmail and google docs and spreadsheets and calendar. In 11.04 I have set up Desktop launchers and copied them across to the Launcher (what an odd way to add something to the launcher, why no right-click 'add launcher' option?)

The problem is that the launcher thinks all these apps are chromium (which they are really, but I would like them to be seen as separate apps). If I minimize my gmail window, a little triangle appears next to the chromium icon, not the gmail icon. To get the window back, I have to click on the Chromium icon. Clicking on the gmail icon launches a new instance of it (also tied to the Chromium icon).

2. Is there a way to disable the Unity dock, but not the Unity feature where the Min/Max/Close go into the command bar?

Ubuntu :: Unity - Mythtv Or How To Hide Unity Launcher

May 8, 2011

Just moved to Ubuntu 11.04 with unity and only have one problem...For most of my desktop needs I prefer to have the Unity Launcher up all the time (fullscreen apps don't cover it), and have set this option with ccsm.

However, when I watch mythtv, it is also under the launcher (and the top panel as well). How can I force mythtv to cover the launcher?
What I really need is a keyboard shortcut to hide the launcher, but the only shortcut is for "show launcher". (I guess the devs assumed everyone would want it hidden by default).

This, by the way is not my usual way for viewing mythtv. I have a projector attached to the desktop PC and it doesn't get a Unity Launcher by default (in Twinview), so no probs. However, occasionally I want to watch something on my computer screen, and that is when this issue arises.

General :: Application Called Impact - Paths In Java Application ?

Apr 14, 2010

So, I have this application called Impact, it is an explicit time integration Finite Elements code written in Java...


I untar the pack, and launch the application calling a script, from within the untarred folder,


This launches a gui which allows me to setup a case, which needs some setup file, tipically some *.in and a mesh file, tipically some *.msh.

Other mode of executuion consists of calling the setup file as argument to Impact.sh script ( CLI execution mode, for g33k5 )

My problem is : I have packed the whole stuff into a Slackware .tgz, that places it in /usr/local/Impact, and placed a calling script in /usr/local/bin,



I decided to hack the ImpactGUI_OGL_linux_amd64.sh script from



no avail,


even after adding /usr/local/Impact/bin to PATH... won't go...

I can run this thing from within its directory... but I do not like messing within the directories of my applications, this is why I sent this to /usr/local, and placed a calling script in /usr/local/bin...

Software :: Segfault In Application / But No Core Or Application Failure

Feb 19, 2009

I am trying to troubleshoot an application that is generating several segfaults with an error 14, but the application is not crashing.The program continues to run. I would assume I can connect to a running process to debug it, but I'm not sure what to gather. The program has several background processes associated with it so I'm sure I'll need to attach to the actual internal process. Does anyone have any experience in this to offer some insight?

Ubuntu :: Moving The Unity Bar?

Mar 10, 2010

I'm helping a friend with his netbook, and he is used to the regular netbook edition before the unity-style. The small netbookscreen is just not good for this new appbar on the left side (it's one of the old eee-pc's).

None of us like that solution, and I wonder if its possible to move the bar on the bottom side of the screen so it will be a bit more Windows 7-ish? I've searched and looked everywhere so I just have to ask.
