Like Chris I'm confused why it is working when Unbound is running.

If you want to use DHCP, which you do if you are roaming, you have
little control of the address you are getting. But that should not be
a problem.

There is no need to listen on all interfaces for Unbound. Just
127.0.0.1 will be sufficient. So use

server:
	interface: 127.0.0.1

Also when using DHCP it is very likely your network manager overwrites
your resolv.conf periodically. Be aware of that. Also, for blocking
the ad servers you can include these in your /etc/hosts file.

You can run 'netstat -lnup' as root to figure out if something else is
running om port 53 locally.

I'm not sure what your goal is running a local resolver. If it is
DNSSEC at the end host have a look at dnssec-trigger. Which is likely
in the repositories of Mint.
