    Auto hide the launcher - reveal does not work

    In 12.04, reveal does not work when I auto hide the launcher. I have tried adjuting sensitivity. Nothing works.

    The reveal is set to activate by moving the cursor directly to the left side by default due to the proximity of the title bar close button.

    The launcher can be set to the top left also. The luncher won't appear if the the cursor is not moved to the location specified by the setting. Try logging out and back in or restarting after making the setting if the launcher is not responding.

    I have also found that you need to move the cursor far to the left to get the launcher to show. Meaning, don't stop moving your cursor to the left once you hit the edge, simply keep going as if it would never stop. Haha, that seems to get the job done.

    The reveal was working fine until an update this morning. Now it only works if I press the super key. Mouse movements wont reveal it.

    So it was caused by this morning's update? That sucks!

    Re: Auto hide the launcher - reveal does not work

    Having read through every comment on the bug report, I was wondering if someone might do me two favors.

    1) Post the downgrade instruction as if you were telling an extremely stupid person how to do it. Because, in my case, you would be.

    2) Tell me, which Nvidia driver is used in 12.10? I still have nightmares about getting NVIDIA to work in 12.04. If I can avoid the issue altogether, I'd be a very happy man.

    Meanwhile, I'll flip between my Gnome shell and Cinnamon desktops.

    Follow the instructions in post #3 by timothymowens, in the bug report Nikth posted. It's probably the best point for point explaination you'll get.

    Okay. But I'm still curious if 12.10 has NVIDIA 304.51. If not, I may upgrade. Anyone know?

    12.10 does not have 304.51, since it has this bug. It has 304.43.
    I think, this bug will be fixed it туче NVIDIA blob.
