What apps/tools do you keep locked in your launcher?   #Unity  

Take a screenshot and share, using the hashtag #InMyLauncher so others can find it!

changes all the time,  FF and Thunderbird standard, so are File Manager, KMoney and software centre.  The rest change depending on the project of the week.
 
I tried to install ubuntu on my pc but its just not happening...
getting some or the other error every time...
 
I switched over to XFCE so I guess my answer is - I don't? Unity was to too hard on my 4 year old EEE netbook.
 
+Тарас Мукин I'm not getting web-apps either. Every time I open Gmail in the browser, I get asked whether I want to install the web-app. I say yes, and then....nothing happens. I think  might go back to 12.04.

+Eric Goulet oh.. its Photoshop? I wondered if they have found a way to customise the Unity GUI at last
 
If that's the case, I'd be impressed.

Nothing, don't use Unity.  KDE is the best I have seen.  Gotta switch from to "folder view" from "desktop view" and select double click for the mouse.  Close the resulting "desktop view" widget.  You can begin to use the best most advanced traditional desktop manager of them all.

Chrome, terminal, XBMC. That is all that is needed thanks to the DASH. 
 
nvidia experimental, tho just as long as your not using a optimus laptop. Learn from my mistake, discrete gpu's (S.O.C.'s) or dedicated gpu's only.   

+Marcelo Luis Bermudez L. 
 
I own a samsung r400 laptop.
When I install nvidia drivers my Fn keys get broken (only volume and suspend keys work) and the startup screen res is bad (minor problem) but my Fn keys are important for my everyday.
U know what i'm doing wrong?
+Bubba Lichvar +Martin Stibor 
 
Well +Marcelo Luis Bermudez L. . Unfortunately that doesn't have anything to do with your video driver. If you were having low frame rates when you ran $glxgears or $glxspheres, that would be different. 

What your problem is that Ubuntu doesn't know that your FN keys are. But your lucky day is today I guess. As a recent owner of a nice 17" Chronos 7 laptop I found this ppa that you can add. I take no responsibility for you laptop breaking if it does, I will take credit if it does fix it tho ;)

Site: https://launchpad.net/~voria/+archive/ppa

Terminal commands:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:voria/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Then from here add what ever packages make sense, remember that you can always remove them if they screw something up. Even if you  cant boot you can get into grub (by holding shift) and get into a recovery terminal. or at your login manager (aka lightdm) press ALT+CTRL+F1 ,or F2. 

The packages:

$sudo apt-get install backlight
$sudo apt-get install samsung-tools
$sudo apt-get install easy-slow-down-manager

to remove: 

$sudo apt-get remove "package name here"

to remove package plus dependencies:

$sudo apt-get purge "package name here"


Hope this helps. Most of my function keys worked out of the box since Voria sends his code up stream to Canonical  The only ones that needed fixed were the fan speed function (now fixed) and my keyboard back-light function (still WIP). If I don't have a simple fix for it soon I'll have to hack it into the system, which is why you go open source to begin with, you can fix everything yourself, if you know how that is.

I mostly use Dash to open softwares. I like to keep the launcher clean, because it'll give me enough space when multi tasking without the need of scrolling the launcher.
