I was using Unity and one day, while I was using my laptop and clicked on the Ubuntu logo, the entire sidebar disappeared. I tried to restart, but the top bar had disappeared too.

So I did a hard reset and my laptop booted but glitched. After that, it didn't boot back. I put the hard drive in another PC and it was fine.

Can anyone help with what's going on?

I am using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and I am using a lot the navigation shortcuts to switch workspace on Unity (Ctrl+Alt+Arrows for me).

Since a recent update, it seems that the priorities of the shortcuts have been changed: while the workspace shortcuts used to have the highest priorities, it is not the case any more and now it usually activates a shortcut of the program I am currently using, which is very an ...

ubuntu 20.04, fail to lock after suspend
au flag

ubuntu 20.04 kernel 5.4.0-77-generic unity 7.5.0 desktop.

When I recover from suspend, it doens't show lock screen. Also, windows+L (I configured the shortcuts quite a bit, but whatever shortcut for locking the screen) doens't work any more.

Please don't ask why I use unity not gnome, or comment like gnome is better so use gnome. I need my desktop to be locked when I suspend it.

To override the "place window" plugin python issues some CLI commands. Note: $ and extra lines added for readability:

ar flag

Until this morning, in Unity, I had been happily using Ctrl + Super + RightArrow (or LeftArrow) to place a window neatly on one half of my screen or the other. I'd also sometimes use the mouse to drag a window right or left, until the pointer touched the edge of the screen, and that would have the same effect.

This morning, both techniques stopped working, and the associated shortcuts disappeared ...

Ubuntu 21.04/GNOME/Mutter -- no right click menu for launcher/icon options?
in flag

If there's one thing that keeps on bugging me with GNOME on Ubuntu Desktop (21.04 at the moment, this was already in a few previous versions as well) is the lack of getting properties of an icon (and possibly remove it, modify it, etc) with a right-click menu option.

Example: every so often one ends up with this example situation where you have a "ghost" of another install, which in some cases ha ...
