  1. [SOLVED] Re: 12.04 Unity 2D: Want to auto-hide the launcher but this is now broken

    For what it's worth... I am closing all of my questions here about Unity. SOLVED by dumping Unity.

    I will try Gnome Shell for awhile.

  3. [SOLVED] Re: (12.04) Unity 2D seems to be eating alt-shift-right-arrow

    Update -- for... complicated... reasons, I had to switch to Unity (not 2D). Now, alt-shift-right behaves as I expect, but alt-shift-up shows a zoomed out view of all the windows in the workspace.

    No graphics driver updates.

  5. [SOLVED] Re: 12.04 Unity 2D: Want to auto-hide the launcher but this is now broken

    OK... a temporary workaround for me will be to use the normal "Ubuntu" (unity) session at login, rather than "Ubuntu 2D."

    However...

  6. [SOLVED] Re: 12.04 Unity 2D: Want to auto-hide the launcher but this is now broken

  8. [SOLVED] (12.04) Unity 2D seems to be eating alt-shift-right-arrow

    Okay... another keyboard mapping question with Unity (2D) in Ubuntu 12.04.

    I use org-mode in Emacs daily. It uses Alt-Shift-LeftArrow to promote a subtree (move it one level to the left) and...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: 12.04 + Unity 2D: "Run command" prompt keeps popping up on alt-anything

    I see... it wasn't at all clear what that thing was called.

    I still think there's a bug here. My understanding is that HUD should appear if you press the left alt key and nothing else, but it very...

    I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 with the Unity 2D desktop.

    When I started using Unity a couple of months ago, I found that the Alt key would open a "run command" prompt. This was annoying, so I looked in...

  13. [SOLVED] Re: How to remove a persistent empty launcher item?

    And... it wasn't persistent. It went away after logging out and logging in again.

    Then I had to deal with Ubuntu automagically changing my default language to Chinese... but that's another story.
  14. [SOLVED] How to remove a persistent empty launcher item?

    Somehow, an empty item has become locked to the launcher (below).

    Normally, to remove an item that's been locked into the launcher, you would right-click on it and choose the "Unlock" command. But...

    [ubuntu] Re: Unity vs lowlatency kernel?

    Hm, actually, I just had to go back to the generic kernel temporarily, for another reason. And I still got the crash from unity_support_test.

    I'm setting up a new system after my 3.5-year-old laptop died -- Ubuntu 12.04*, now on a ThinkPad E431. It's running beautifully, except for one thing.

  20. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 12.04 installer hangs at "Preparing..."

    Actually it seems to be the option to download updates while installing. This time I unchecked both boxes and it does actually go ahead now.
