    Trouble with the Launcher

    Howdy -
    I'm running 12.10 and loving it. I'm having a little trouble with the option to show/hide the Launcher. I've tried enabling auto-hide function in both locations: left side and top left corner.

    In each case, it seems I can't get a consistent reveal when I mouse over to the area, no matter what sensitivity setting I have set.

    Is this a known issue, or am I suffering from operator error?

    Thank you!

    Is it possible that there is some technique to successfully showing/hiding the launcher that I am missing? I mouse over to that part of the screen and hover, but it just doesn't show back up after the initial hide.

    Thanks.

    Have you tried to increase the sensitivity ?

    Try setting the reveal sensitivity & pressure with an external app.
    I am currently using Unsettings but there are alternatives out there.
    Here is the PPA for Unsettings.

    Read about installing
    is pretty good although it does not mention how to install the actual app:

    after you completed the previous steps type:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install unsettings
    into the terminal and hit enter. Unsettings will now install. Launch it through the Dash or Settings screen.

    Yes, I did. I mentioned that in my initial post; I tried all different levels of the sensitivity setting, without there being any appreciable change in the behavior of the Launcher. :/

    I'll give this a whirl and report back - thanks!

    Any chance UnSettings might help me with the problem described here? http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2104092

    UnSettings has saved the day! Still looking for the way to fix my icons, though. Thanks!
