i am using 12.04 on vmware 9, and when i try to set the launcher auto-hide function on, it hides permanently unless i press the windows key on my keyboard! So the sensitivity regulation isn't working. Is there a way to fix this issue?
I see that this is sort of a problem for people, as I see this question has been asked before by others, but for the others, the problem has always been the opposite of what I am experiencing. I haven't found one that has this problem where the Unity launcher is hidden, then about 15 minutes into using it, it just stops hiding and sits on top of my windows.
Whether I run Ubuntu as a live-USB or install it, I always have two trash bins on the Unity Launcher. Both work, and both open the same location.
This seems a bit redundant; what could be done about it?
Update: Turning auto-hide on made it obvious that I have multiple Launchers showing.
I have 12.04 version. When I select ON option for auto-hide the launcher I can't make it to appear. It doesn't matter what kind of "hot spot" reveal location I select or which reveal sensitivity level I select.
After I installed updates today and restarted, the launcher icons reset to the default size. In the System Settings / Appearance, the slider to adjust the icon size is no longer there. At first I suspected it was using to Unity 2D, but I don't think it is. I log out and made sure Unity was selected, and if I set the launcher to auto hide, it becomes transparent before sliding away.
