Autohide feature for Sidebar in Ubuntu 14 doesn't work

Asked by Alireza Davoudian on 2015-08-20

I am an ordinary Ubuntu user who just installed Ubuntu 14.04 as a guest OS on VMWare Fusion 7.1.2 on Mac OSX 10.10 .

When I enble the Autohide feature in Appearane system tools, the sidebar just hides and never shows again. I looked the forum for similar problems but it seems neither could help me with this.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Alireza

Best Stephen M. Webb (bregma) said : #2

The Launcher is designed to reveal (when hidden) under a number of circumstances.

First off, it should reveal when the mouse presses against the left edge of the screen. Second, it should reveal when the Alt-F2 key combination is struck from the keyboard. You should validate at least the keyboard reveal works.

If the mouse reveal is not working in VMWare Fusion there may be a problem in the graphics stack.

Thanks Stephen M. Webb, that solved my question.
