So i recently upgraded to 12.04 from my stable 10.04. I sort of like the idea of the dash and HUD because i can keep my hands on the keyboard more. It's especially faster when I know what I'm looking for (if im just browsing or i only know the category its slower... I have to go to applications, then filter, then scroll...
I've an issue in an Ubuntu install that was upgraded to 12.04. Recently the Unity Launcher is behaving strangely: left-clicking the dash icon changes the title bar and a triangle appears next to it, suggesting that it is running but nothing else can be seen, It does not respond to keyboard input either.
I use virtual machines often in full screen dual monitor mode. Since I moved to Ubuntu 13.10, whenever my VM is in fullscreen mode, I cannot access dash when I switch to another workspace (i.e. the ubuntu desktop). When I attempt to access dash (by clikcing the super key or mouse) it flashes open then closes immediately.
Hi all, I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 on my eeepc and everything is going fairly well. my major problem at this point is mostly an aesthetic one, though it could also be causing some of the lag in unity. When I call the dash with the super button, it's supposed to spring up instantaneously, or so i'm told. mine takes about two seconds, so i thought i would remove the dash blur to speed things up.
Hope you all had a great festive period!
I have retuned to my trusty old laptop today, and it seems slow, not in
functionality but in the use of the dash (the menu / search that pops up
when the <super> key is pressed). Symptoms are that when the key is
pressed I get an empty dash, and about 10 -15 secs later it starts to be
populated, files n folders first then apps.
I recently encountered a problem: pressing "super" stopped opening dash. I works fine with other combinations. So I checked in CCSM in Unity plugin if everything is set right... and it is... super is binded to show dash, launcjer and help overlay. So I tried to change it to something else and then reverse it back... didn't help.
