    Hidden launcher sometimes won't reveal with mouse.

    Does anyone know if there is a bug report about this for raring? I have the launcher hidden but occasionally it won't reveal when pushing the mouse to the left and i have to use the super key to get it to appear.

    After i do that the launcher is fine and will reveal as expected, i am using the nvidia 313 proprietary drivers.Is anyone else getting this happen?

    you can refresh compiz settings : compiz --replace ccp &
    then refresh unity : setsid unity

    and ubuntu-tweak-tool can set/change that feature

    Or you can press the "super" key once to reveal the launcher. Hold the super key then move your cursor to select the right icon.

    I switched mine with to the top left corner and it works better (still sticks periodically). This feature had been turned off in the last couple releases.

    Launcher sometimes refuses to appear. Lately I've got all my windows leaving a couple millimeters of desktop exposed to the left (no full screens) and seems to be better left side reveal today. Wasn't yesterday, who knows tomorrow.

    For what I do, "unity" takes more keystrokes and time than the traditional Gnome desktop. What the "unity" desktop is good for is causing lots of bugs to report to launchpad....just had a "compiz" bug to report yesterday on a raring install....
