[Solved] Window Manager settings will not open

Postby greening on Wed Aug 15, 2012 10:35 am

Using LM13 XFCE on an HPmini. All was fine until a few days ago when I tried to customise behaviour of windows. But Window Manger applet and Window Manager tweaks will not open. Whether I try direct from the menu or from settings manager Any ideas?

Probally nautilus (gnome :x ) took over desktop

Try in terminal or 'alt F2' running xfwm again and resave session. Setting 'Window Manager" and 'Window Manager Tweaks' won't run unless 'xfwm4' running!


Maybe...

probally... you may want to uninstall nautilus ('nautilus-data) ect. Use synaptic and also note what else uninstalls and replace with others (xfburn for brasero, pdfreader ect.)

Glad got fixed

P.S. not sure what nautilus all doing in 'Mint-Xfce but I replace and finding no problems. :roll:
