Testing Unity Session in 19.04


I just ran it with GTK_CSD=1 unity-control-center

Excellent, better solution.
I think that, (online-accounts Ubuntu SSO) may be to only one affected by nocsd, at least I haven’t seen any other instances.

Reported here: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-online-accounts/issues/58

Someone reported that launcher showing mounted drive icon(/dev/sda2, 3, etc, not external drive) even it is backlisted. Can anyone confirm ?

Yes. That 1TB drive is in /etc/fstab.


BTW, is it normal for the keyboard shortcut settings page recognize environment variables, like $HOME? I created a shortcut for Flameshot to save to a custom save path, but it won’t work if I use the keyboard shortcut, but works if done from the terminal.

flameshot -p $HOME/Pictures/Screenshot

Here’s the notification I get: “Invalid path, it must be a real path in the system”

I am talking about internal drive partitions only but in your case It’s probably something to do with systemd/gvfs. For example mounting in /mnt works.

No. Full path is needed if not in bin. You can use menulibre tp properly create a desktop with desktop actions though

Guess that makes sense. The 1TB drive is mounted inside the /home partition (under /home/DATA).

Hi I just installed unity from minimal wiki in other thread. It’s working great. But there used to be a startup application editor. Where it is? Which package ?

Another issue is, I can’t copy paste files from nemo to nautilus though. Nor can I copy paste files from nautilus to terminal. Is there any workaround?

This is very annoying.


No not at the moment. It is this issue. I have proposed a patch to use legacy clipboard, but it was rejected. I will do it in u-s-d clipboard manager though it won’t happen this cycle.

I have patched nautilus, you can download the deb and then turn on “use-legacy-clipboard” from dconf editor. But I advice against that and I won’t be maintaining it.

I don’t believe copy & paste (context menu), has ever worked between file managers. Just DnD…

It works between nemo 3.8.5 and Nautilus 3.26.4 in 18.10, both context, menu and keyboard c&p

The screenshot app crashes when taking a screenshot of a given window (alt+prtscr)

I cannot reproduce it.

Seems to have fixed itself. Bizarre, had it on my regular user profile and on a raw unity profile I always create from scratch on login to test these things.

Also looks like somebody’s fixed the bug introduced on 17.10 where alt+print wouldn’t trigger anything at all. Thank you!


Btw, logout works. Thank you. :slight_smile:

Do we still need the maintainers PPA after 19.04 is officially out?

Why not?
The PPA would be good for 19.10 too. :slight_smile:

Isn’t the purpose of the PPA to test Unity?
