My situation may be similar, and might have some help. I have two Ubuntu gnome systems, one desktop and one laptop. Both have Apache installed in the default location of /var/www. On both I set myself to owner, and sometimes www-data as group. I was perplexed that, using Nautilus, I could not delete file on the desktop using the delete key, but I could ...


In Gnome 3.16 I managed to add an application to favorites by naming the .desktop file exactly as the window WM_CLASS. To know the window WM_CLASS: open a terminal window execute the xprop command: the cursor turns in a cross click on the relevant window read the command output in the terminal, looking for the WM_CLASS property (it is a comma separated ...

The way to fix it is to install lxappearance (or any other GTK2 config tool, but this one is lightweight and has no dependencies) and set GTK2 theme to something similar to your ...


This is a known bug and it's already fixed in git. If you don't want to wait until 3.18 will be available in debian repos you have two options: the quick and dirty hack: close tweak-tool and as root, open /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gtweak/tweaks/tweak_group_xkb.py look for a line like renderer.props.max_width_chars = 30 and change the width as ...
