Ubuntu :: Reverting From Gnome3 Back To Unity?

Jun 30, 2011

I reverted back from Gnome3 to Unity using ppa-purge, but now I have 2 annoying issues: The launcher reverts back to its default after login/logout. Any extra items I "Keep in launcher" are gone. The clock is stuck in 12h mode and it doesn't take any new settings. 24h clock, showing seconds etc. all fail.

I have 2 different systems affected, one 64-bit and one 32-bit (pae kernel).

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Keep Reverting Back To US Layout

Apr 2, 2010

I've got an UK keyboard, and every time I boot up, Ubuntu keep reverting back to the US keyboard layout which is annoying me. I open up keyboard preferences, the UK layout is already selected. So I delete the US layout, click on "Apply System-wide" and it works. Until I reboot and the US layout is back in there! I suspect it's something to do with not having admin privileges to permanently save the changes - if this is the case, why it doesn't ask me for my password, or give me a chance to escalate my privileges or something?

Ubuntu :: Reverting Back Before An Flash Plug-in Installation

Aug 21, 2009

Recently installed Ubuntu. It resurrected a dead machine. While using Miro, I went to a site in Firefox to check on a video downloads. The site said I couldn't play their files and gave me the option of downloading flash. Since Ubuntu was having trouble getting the dependancies together for me to load flash and make it work, I downloaded their offer. Now Miro doesn't recognize any of the available videos to download when I try to access them. How do I reverse the downloads?

Ubuntu Installation :: Recover Unity After Gnome3 PPA Install?

Apr 29, 2011

So I glossed over the fact that installing Gnome3 from the PPA would break Unity for some reason, and now it's broken, and I can't even check it out. Is there a way to recover it and/or remove Gnome3, or is it a case of being out of luck unless I do a full reinstall?

Fedora :: Get Back Old Alt+Tab Behavior In F15/GNOME3?

May 28, 2011

After upgrading to F15 I noticed that Alt+Tab behaves now differently. For example, if I have several terminal windows open, I can't cycle through all of them by just pressing Alt+Tab repeatedly. Now the system just displays one terminal icon and icons for each terminal window, but if I keep pressing Tab (Alt being down all the time), it does not switch the window.

I want back the old behavior of the Alt+Tab keys!

Ubuntu :: 64x Natty Install Using Gnome3 Ppa ( Official Ppa From Gnome3)?

May 5, 2011

I am trying to solve multiple issues with my 64x natty install using gnome3 ppa( official ppa from gnome3). I have this setup on two machines, one is a fresh install the other is a upgrade. They both have most of these issues. Here they are: 1) Nautilus will not launch from the favorites bar. It does launch from a shortcut on the desktop. It will not run from the terminal unless I am root. 2) Number lock is disabled at startup (enabled in my bios). I used to be able to enable after nattty had started, I no longer can, though num lock light is lit - number keypad does not work!

3) I have set gnome3 set to let nautilus draw the background and desktop, I get a white screen at boot until Nautilus is launched then I get a background and some desktop icons(no computer or network icons). If I plug in a usb drive the icon appears on my desktop, when I select it I loose the background and have to select it again.

4) Wireless randomly will drop the connection, have to reconnect, sometimes it will, sometimes I have to reboot. I have Fedora installed on a 2nd hard drive on the machine with a clean install and the only similarity is it displays the default desktop until I launch Nautilus, then my background and desktop are displayed with all of the icons. From there on out Fedora has none of these issues. I have used Ubuntu Gnome and XFCE as my only os since 6.0 and have never had this many problems. Both machines would not run the gdm because of Nvidia issues after the upgrade and clean install. I DO NOT want to give up on Ubuntu as I tell all my friends and family to use it.

Ubuntu :: Unity Has Disappeared / Get It Back?

May 31, 2011

When logging in, I suddenly got a message saying "It appears you do not have the hardware to run Unity", and it initialized the old GNOME 2 desktop.

Ofcourse I have the hardware to run Unity (an NVIDIA GTX 580), and it has worked normally until now...

Now Unity won't come back, even after logging out / in or rebooting. The video driver works normally and NVIDIA X Server Settings does not show that there's anything wrong with my video card or drivers.

Is this a bug? Did this happen to anyone else? How do I get the Unity desktop back?

Ubuntu :: U11.04 Unity Panel Icons Missing / Get Them Back?

May 5, 2011

After playing around with Ubuntu Tweaks to remove the "Recent Documents" logging, I somehow ended up losing the icons for "Applications" and "Files & Folders".

I tried lots of different things but the only thing that seemed to sort it was this:

Log out. Log in under Ubuntu Classic (for some reason dropping back to tty with Ctr, Alt and F2 didn't do it). Bring up the terminal and do code...

Log back into Ubuntu (not classic) and hopefully, you should end up with all icons back as they were.

This worked for me but I can't remember if I'd gotten rid of the ".recent-documents.xbel" file in my home folder first, so if all else fails you could try that before you start removing and re-installing Unity.

Ubuntu :: Getting Unity Back After Video Card Change

Aug 4, 2011

I have an Asus/Intel setup with integrated graphics that has been running Unity no problem for a while. I temporarily installed a separate NVidia card to do some hardware compatibility testing for another system that apparently couldn't hack it for Unity and forced it back to Classic. With the Nvidia card removed and going back to the integrated video setup I can't seem to get Unity running again. At the login I've toggled back and forth between Ubuntu (Unity) and Classic to no avail. Is there some way to reactivate it?

Ubuntu :: Switch From Unity Back To Old Netbook Remix Interface

Oct 26, 2010

Having just upgraded to 10.10, I've discovered Unity, and I'm afraid its not for me. I absolutely loved the previous interface, and was quite shocked and saddened to see it disappear. But I'd like to keep all the other new software that comes with 10.10. So my question is, can I install the old 10.04 beautiful interface to run on the 10.10 edition? Re-installation is a MS solution, that turned me on to linux in the first place!

Ubuntu :: Move Menu From Top Panel Back To Its Program In Unity?

May 7, 2011

I decided to persist with Unity having spent until today launching in an Ubuntu Classic session. The thing that bugs me the most is the fact that each program has its menu (ie File, Edit etc) in the top panel. This may be fine for netbooks but not my laptop.I just launched Tomboy, which startde with its window in the bottom right of the screen, however to get to the programs menu I have to move the cursor all the way to the top right of the screen - miles.

Ubuntu :: Reverting 10.04 To 9.10?

May 26, 2010

Way to revert my 10.04 ( to 9.10.

<rant>10.04 has been a disaster for my Acer laptop. NVidia must hate Ubuntu because any time I try to load into, the damn thing black-screens and dies. "works", but I get flooded with errors related to the generic nvidia drivers. And I've specifically NOT installed the proprietary drivers because I know from past experience that they kill my computer, regardless of which Ubuntu version I use. Plus 10.04 is just... why did they change everything? The default color scheme makes my eyes bleed, and even the close/minimize/maximize buttons are in the wrong place. But that's minor... The real problem is that my graphics capabilities are shot to hell, and since this is a computer used for work-related image processing, I need 9.10 back.</rant>

Reinstalling from disk is not an option since any install disc (alt or otherwise) newer than 8.04 fails. (A fresh install of 9.10 involved installing 8.04 => 8.10 => 9.04 => 9.10) Is there a simple apt-get type command I can use to revert it?

Ubuntu :: Reverting From Gnome 3 To 11.04?

Apr 30, 2011

I basically accidentally installed gnome3 on ubuntu tweak (I didn't notice the box was checked) and next time I started up I could only use the gnome 3 environment which is massively buggy. I wish to revert back to 11.04 (without a clean install, since I have a lot of files I need to keep). I have tried purging the gnome3 team ppa but I get the following error:

"sudo ppa-purge ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3/

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.
