View Full Version : Defaults and start-up apps on Maverick Netbook upgrade

October 11th, 2010, 09:26 AM
I've upgraded my netbook from Lucid to Maverick, and have a couple of questions:

1. My start-up apps don't appear to be running. In particular Tilda and Gnome-Do don't start up - and removal of the "Alt+F2" shortcut to run programs makes it hard to start them manually.

2. I'm still getting the old launcher as the desktop, with no search box in the top bar. (In many respects having the old launcher isn't so bad, as I'm Not Friends with the new Unity side-panel. But it looks messy.)

Any thoughts?

I'm a noob and I can't help you with question 1. =/

2. If you go to Startup Applications (Applications -> Startup Applications, in the new launcher), you can disable the old launcher ("Netbook Launcher - A Clutter-based desktop launcher").

People said here: http://wwww.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1592474 that a clean install is a better option, but I think I'll try to deal with it for now...
