    Hello Hanny.
    Thank you for the tutorial
    I have a problem with the installation of ubuntu 14.10. The touchpad doesnt function. I have to work allways with the mouse. Do you know how fix it? I can give you more information about the notebook if it is required

    • Ravi Saive says:

      Search for Mouse & Touch pad setting and enable touch pad and scrolling to make it work..

      Hello Federico,
      After installing the operating system I recommend you to make the updates. In order to install the latest version of VirtualBox on Ubuntu/Linux Mint repository or from Oracle website.

    Never mind; please disregard my previous email regarding not being able to “see” the Mate DE. I didnt know I had to log out of Unity and log into Mate ;)

    But as to the problem with Numix theme; it still persists.


    • Hanny Helal says:

      Hello JG.

      You have to change the icon theme that you’re using, after you installed Numix icon theme, you have to use the “Unity Tweak Tool” or “Gnome Tweak Tool” in order to change the default icon theme for the system..

    Hi, I’m running Ubuntu 14.10 64bit and I can not run Mate. I have copied and pasted all the commands and a bunch of things happen in the terminal but end result is that I’m still only seeing Unity! I’ve rebooted a couple of times but it stays in Unity.

    Same happens with Numix Theme. Namely, I copied and pasted all the commands, the terminal window displays all these messages and then…. nothing.

    Could you please help me?
