I tried to install Dash using this method: $ sudo apt-get install dash
There were no errors. However, I did not find Dash installed in Ubuntu afterwards. I’m a newbie to this, can anyone help?
The interface you are speaking of is called "Unity". To install it, open up a terminal and enter the command below which is in bold:
sudo apt-get install unity
Then please restart (or log out and log back in) and you should be presented with the Unity interface. If at any time you decide you don't like the interface, at the login screen (in the bottom right corner) you may chose to use the classic version of Gnome.
Does this answer your question?
To know more about this package, you can use dpkg
$ dpkg -s dash
want to run ccsm compizconfig-settings-manager (Simple CompizConfig Settings Manager (aka, Simple-CCSM.) ) and make sure that the Unity plugin is checked
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
sudo apt-get install simple-ccsm
If this happens you in a Unity (3D) session, try with a Unity-2D session. The choice is via the wiggly icon located on the login window.
If you just want to know if the unity 2D package is installed, you could try this at a terminal:
aptitude search ~dunity | grep 2d
run this command in a terminal window:
ps -ef | grep unity
I and see "unity-2d-launcher" in the list of running processes.
do you have run Twinview?
Which version do you have? Just click the Ubuntu logo on the top right.
Dash will appear.
Or do what the above comment says.
Tell me what happened.
When I click the Ubuntu logo on the top it does not show Dash but the Applications folder opens up. Thanks.
If you are running 11.04 or 11.10, it should display what is there in video.
if not update your OS.
Starting at Ubuntu 6.10, Dash is installed by default (located at /bin/dash).
The Ubuntu 10.10. When I click on Ubuntu logo Applications folder shows up. Please advise. Where do I input /bin/dash ? Thanks.
You need to open up Nautilus. To do so, go to Places -> Computer. Then navigate to /bin/dash.
