[SOLVED]1 minor issues on Q17-Xfce

Postby Habitual on Wed Aug 13, 2014 2:34 pm

Window Buttons.png
these don't minimize or maximize on click but once.
I just installed LM17 Qiana x86_64 (20140623)
and I 1 small annoyance really, that I need guidance on.

2.) I can't seem to single-click to minimize to the "Window Buttons" panel widget.
It works once, but not in a repeated fashion, eg: If I click the minimized Firefox icon in "Window Buttons" the first time, it minimizes.
Trying it twice in a row, nothing.
On other OSs (Xubuntu 14) recently, this was the behavior.
Also, during the Live CD Session it worked this way.

Thanks for your time.

It's "focus follows mouse" on issue #2?
When I disabled it, the "Window Buttons" clicking works.

OK. Who can explain this to me?

I installed the Greybird (shimmer) theme and I can't get the title-bar of of focused apps to have that theme's color.
I have no .gtkrc if that helps, or matters...?


Where did you install Greybird from?

I downloaded the .zip file (on the right of the page) from here:
https://github.com/shimmerproject/Greybird

I could only get the focused apps title-bar to have the blue color by going to Window Manager > Style tab > choose Default
It didn't work by choosing Greybird-master in the list.

I tried messing around with Greybird-master > xfwm-4 > themerc without success.

It was "there" I when|after I installed the system, I believe.
I too downloaded https://codeload.github.com/shimmerproj ... zip/master
and unarchived it in ~/.themes/Greybird2

Window Manager > Style tab > choose Default
is the solution that works.

Thanks!
