An issue with Wine and Microsoft programs may occour, where the program does not recognize the default Microsoft fonts. The issue may be adressed, by executing the following command in a terminal:
sudo apt-get --reinstall install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
You often either love or hate the Unity desktop environment.
Fortunately, it is possible to bring back the “good old” Gnome look and feel in Ubuntu.
Simply open a terminal and install the Gnome Session Flashback, by typing:
“sudo apt-get install gnome-session-flashback”.
After the installation has ended, log out and choose “Gnome (Compiz)” for a Window manager.
You might accidentally have dropped a Launcher icon (the icons next to the Application and Places drop down menu) in Ubuntu with Gnome-Fallback-Session installed.
Removing it can’t be done by right clicking, and the choosing remove.
But: I can be done, if you press <Super+Alt> whilst right clicking. The option to “Remove From Panel” then appears.
