The problem you're noticing is that some 3rd party apps use different widget toolkits. In a nutshell, the toolkit is the component that contains the instructions for how certain interface elements should look and behave. All elementary apps use the Gtk+ 3 toolkit. Firefox uses a toolkit called XUL. By default, it tries to imitate the look of the older Gtk+ ...

I was having some charging issues as well. I was able to fix this by either letting it fully discharge to the point of shutdown then recharge it fully to calibrate it or by letting it discharge then charging it fully with the computer shutdown. Hope either will work for you as well!

so @shrestha_aj has the answer: I just needed to remove the quotes from Exec and Path. Like this: [Desktop Entry] Name=Team Speak 3 Comment=TS Exec=/home/nicolas/Programs/TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_amd64/ts3client_runscript.sh Path=/home/nicolas/Programs/TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_amd64/ Icon=office-address-book Type=Application Categories=Application;

I confirm the same behaviour, but don't believe it to be a Linux issue, rather a Firefox issue/setting upstream. Solution: Open new tab in Firefox and type about:config in the address bar. Accept the warning displayed. Search for ui.context_menus.after_mouseup. Change it from false to true. Close tab and test. References: I stumbled on the solution above ...

It looks like you've installed some kind of third-party software in an attempt to emulate the "global menu" from Unity. I would recommend removing this as it appears to be buggy.

Unfortunately this functionality is, I believe, deliberately left out of eOS. And your correct that almost all other Linux distributions do have it. Why I don't know? Why don't they inclue a minimize button on their window manager by default? I don't know. But this is how "Gala"(eOS window/display manager) works. Also if you install Elementary Tweaks Tool, ...

elementary apps don't have menu bars. In fact, most modern apps don't have menu bars. Chrome, GNOME, elementary, Metro apps on Windows 10, iOS and Android. Saving is done automatically, exiting is the same as closing, and any other functionality that might be missing is usually in a more accessible button, maybe a popover or slide.

elementary OS does not support a global menu bar like Ubuntu or OS X. elementary apps do not use a menu bar, and apps that do use a menu bar display the bar in the window where the developers of the app intended it to display. Any hacks or workarounds to extract menu bars from applications and display them in a panel are not supported and very likely will ...

This is a known bug. Currently mouse battery notifications are prioritized over the laptop battery in Freya. Yeah, its dumb. There was a work around involving editing the 95-upower-csr.rules file, but it doesn't work anymore since the last update to Freya--I think the indicator doesn't update anymore. SOmeone put info on a cron job that forces the update, ...

You can use Super + space to open and hide the menu too.

If you install the dropbox plugin then you get a "Copy Dropbox link" option in the context menu when in your Dropbox folder. You will need to use the latest plugin package version - 0.1-0-26 in Loki. If you want to use a contract, you could try running the commands in a terminal e.g. using pantheon-terminal -e [command] as the Exec line.

Full explanation here. What concern us: setting this via org.gnome.desktop.interface does not work because menus-have-icons (and buttons-have-icons) is deprecated, but it's still possible to set this parameter by adding: , 'Gtk/MenuImages': <1> to "overrides" key in org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xsettings (with a comma and a space before, because ...

Solved it. Well, basically with some tough love. I purged a LOT (but not critical stuff) of my ~./config and ~./local directories and I also purged my ~./mozilla directory. My gut tells me the culprit was a combination of the group of these configs. Some things to note - I use a dedicated home partition. So this means when I did a clean install using the ...

Probably you did use the command gXg pointed out. To revert changes, do: gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings panel-main-menu

To open application search only by pressing Super(win) key: gsettings set org.gnome.mutter overlay-key "'Super_L'" gsettings set org.pantheon.desktop.gala.behavior overlay-action "'wingpanel --toggle-indicator=app-launcher'" Now you should reverse engineer these commands. Hope it helps.

If you want to uninstall it , open Software Center search for Nepomuk Cleaner and click remove. This is not included by default in elementary OS so it is safe to remove

Open task manger immediately after you login to your computer and check which application is running and does not show its icon. For instance, Dropbox does that. To make sure which application missing just try to treminate that application this will remove the icon from the topbar.

I would like to refresh this topic. Do you know the way how to uninstall system pantheon top panel (this one on the top) and replace it with one another who supports global menus? I would not to deliberate with is it good approach or not on general. I am a developer who writes code with InteelIJ on 13" screen. Putting this bar to the top gives me one more ...
