Ubuntu :: Appearance - Disable The Unity Dock But Not Unity Feature Where Min / Max / Close Go Into The Command Bar?

Jul 17, 2011

1. I didn't like the icon theme and changed it to Ubuntu Mono Light. But is there a way to get the Min/Max/Close buttons to how they are in Radiance when maximized, or is that dependant on something else?

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 Dock Does Not Display Some Icons / Why This Happens?

Apr 30, 2011

Sometimes when adding an application link to the Unity dock it does not display an icon in the dock, just a blank space.

An example would be the image manipulation app 'Pinta'. Installing this from the Ubuntu Software Centre, finding it in the apps menu and dragging it to the Unity dock results in a blank space being put in the dock.

I am happy to report a bug but can anyone explain why this happens?

Temporary work around for anyone with this problem:

1. Create a launcher for the app on the desktop
2. Move the launcher to ~/.local/share/applications
3. Drag it to the dock from there

I recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 but when I installed chromium and opened the application, it opened as usual but the icon did not appear in the dock. The only way I could switch to the chromium window would be to alt-tab.

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.

Ubuntu :: How To Disable Window Auto Resize In Unity

Ubuntu :: Disable Compiz When Launching Game In Unity-3d (otherwise GL Games Are Unplayable)?

Apr 28, 2011

How do I temporally disable compiz when in unity-3d so that I can play a game at the correct speed (with compiz enabled I get about 20% of the speed I get with compiz disabled) I have tried a script with

metacity --replace &
compiz --replace &
But this makes an unusable desktop.

I know I can use unity-2d but that seems to be worse in terms of usability.. I also know I can use gnome2 but whats the point when that will be missing in the next release . Is there anyway of doing this in unity-3d? Are there any plans (possibly from compiz) to ever do this automatically ?

One thing that worries me is that a new user will try a opengl game and think that Linux is far slower than Windows at games (which if you have a nvidia card with the binary driver is not true)

Ubuntu :: Natty Unity & Lock Screen Command?

May 1, 2011

I just upgraded to Natty on my Dell 10mini. It runs great but I was wondering what the command-line input for locking the screen. I'm trying to bind a command to a key that will lock my screen and suspend my session all at once, but all I can find is the command for suspend. gnome-screensaver-command --lock doesnt seem to work on unity (obviously). Is there a variation of it that I can use?

Ubuntu :: Disable The Ubuntu Unity Sidepanel From Popping Out?

May 26, 2011

How do you disable the sidepanel from popping out all the time? When i change workspace it pops out. Also when i tab between open windows. Also sometimes when i just browse or type, it pops out. And it just sits there. And it's in the way. How do you make sure it ONLY pops out when i ask it to, by keyboard bindings? I changed the 'reveal mode' in unity behavior in compiz to 'none', but this didn't resolve the problem.

Ubuntu :: Disable XF86Search Feature / Key?

Feb 5, 2010

I want to disable the XF86Search feature in my system. I will try anything.

One of my mouse buttons, when pressed, triggers this XF86Search no matter what I disable or change. (This feature opens up my browser and goes to a search page.) Strangely the mouse button is being interpreted as a key, not a mouse-button press. (This actually may be a bug in Ubuntu...)

How do I disable this feature?

I am running KDE 4.3.5 with Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic (Kubuntu). Though I use BTNX to configure my mouse buttons, this feature has absolutely nothing to do with that. I have tested by disabling BTNX completely and clicking this special button on my mouse still loads a search page.

Here is the xev command output:

KeymapNotify event, serial 36, synthetic NO, window 0x0,
keys: 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 0 0 0

Ubuntu :: Disable Tilde Key Press-twice Feature

Aug 7, 2010

I have noticed quite often that the tilde key only works when I press it twice. I've searched a while and found out that it can be used for accented characters like with the n (can't do that on Windows here anyway). I only know of the tilde-n from Spanish, I've never seen all of the other tilde-characters. And I do not need any of then ever. But I do need to type in my home directory (~) quite often and I want that to work the first time I press that key. Especially when it works through a PuTTY/SSH shell from Windows, but not directly in Gnome Terminal. The system preferences for the keyboard mapping don't help me out.

So how can I disable that double-press feature for the tilde key? It's allright for the accent keys, the � and ` accents alone are invalid characters and should never be used anyway (there's real quotation characters for that) (except for shell backtick expressions) and I don't need the ^ symbol (for coding only) often on Linux.Using Ubuntu 10.4 with German keyboard mapping (de), directly at the machine or via NX/VNC.

General :: Disable A Touch Pad Feature All Together?

Jul 4, 2011

For instance, the one thing I hated more than anything, was the touch-pad on here, and I mean whenever you touched it it counted as a mouse click. I always hated it and in Windows I found a way to disable it with disabling the entire mouse pad, how do I do the same in Ubuntu? In every other distribution I didn't have to worry about it, but I suppose that I'm using the proprietary drivers or something.

Anyway, TL;DR: How do I disable a touch pad feature

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.
