[Ubuntu] Solutions to several Ubuntu 11.04 problems

[Ubuntu] Solutions to several Ubuntu 11.04 problems

1. When I use nautilus I’d like to type addresses by hand. In several Gnome themes this option is disabled. You can fix it:

  • Launch gconf-editor
  • Go to apps/nautilus/preferences
  • Check always_use_location_entry

2. After updating Firestarter stops displaying information about blocked connections.
In order to fix:

  • Open /etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf
  • Uncomment there:

    #*.=info;*.=notice;*.=warn;\
    # auth,authpriv.none;\
    # cron,daemon.none;\
    # mail,news.none -/var/log/messages

  • Type sudo service rsyslog restart

3. In Gnome Unity some tray icons (like Firefox, QuickSynergy or Kadu) are not diplayed.
Type:

gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['all']"
unity --replace
