    Few small problems: help a dummy, increase your karma

    Hey dudes, still enoying my Ubuntu experience. Considering deleting windows for good which I never thought I'd do, so +1 for that.

    Two things are bugging me and I can't figure out how to fix them:

    The first one is in the top panel, to the far right side, I can't figure out how to remove the chat bubble and username without removing the handy dandy power button that is in the top corner. Whenever I click on 'Remove from panel' it takes both away, even though they seem to be seperately clickable.

    Second thing is I tried to customise my keyboard shortuts through System - Preferences - keyboard shortcuts. None of them worked, though. I wanted to launch VLC with Shift[, web browser with Shift\ and close program with Shift, but none of these keys work. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for reading, appreciate the time you've taken.

    Cheers,

    Tiger

    For the first issue, they are one applet called Indicator-Session. There is a standalone power button and logout button available as well.

    As for keyboard shortcuts, make sure you are using the correct command to launch the program. Commands are listed under /usr/bin/.

    Since I don't know what you mean with question one (I can only say that the username is linked to the power button) I will skip to question two.

    It is actually not very advisable to use Shift + something as general command since e.g. Shift + , = < on my keyboard. If you have a Super (windows) button on you keyboard why not use this and make the combination Super + ,
    This should then actually work.
    Warning! Ubuntu might cause smashed Windows. Are you sure you want to continue? [y/n] y
