I was having a very strange problem today in Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx). All my keystrokes in keyboard were delayed. I am bit kind of touch typist and when I type I type a bit faster. My problem was none of the letters I typed were typed actually. I would have to hold a key to have it typed.
I backtracked all my works, my installation that I could remember of then suddently I found the solution, One of the option for press and hold keys (Fow Slow keys) was enabled. I unmarked that option and everything was back to normal.
1. Click System > Preference > Keyboard
2. Select Accessibility
Then tick mark [x] Accessibility features can be toggled with keyboard shortcuts
If this is already marked, then you will get a icon in gnome-panel at right.
Open Universal Access Preference, Unmark the option that says
[ ] Press and hold keys to accept them (Slow Keys)
All the icons in Ubuntu are inside the theme which is in use.
Now to change applications icon, which you can see on the left most side of Applications.The following steps should followed:-
1.Open terminal and type gksudo nautilus.
2.Copy this location into your new window:- /usr/share/icons/
3.Choose the icon type which is in current use like Humanity,Oxygen,Humanity-Dark,etc.
4.Let us use Humanity-Dark icon as for an example,
here /24 is the image size of applications icon.
- just paste the image you made in the above location.
- start-here.svg is the name of that applications icon.
- rename your image with start-here.svg.
5.For the effect in the gnome panel again open terminal and then type:- pkill gnome-panel.
6.You can customize your applications icon accordingly.
