Re: Xfce running slow

HA I have figured out why the panel kept disappearing... it's because of a setting called "Opacity > Leave" that I've set from 100 to 0 and it was making the panel transparent all the time, except for when I was hovering my mouse over it. Dang!

Re: Xfce running slow

Not even a tenner to buy a USB stick? Or a friend you can borrow one or the other from? That's rough. In that case I would leave well enough alone for now. But I'm afraid this advice will fall on dear ears... :roll: Yeah, all of my friends have left the country many years ago, I'm the loser of the ...

For the love of all that's small and fuzzy, do make a backup of your critical stuff on an external medium of some kind! :!:
I can't, cause I'm poor (I'm not joking). If I had money I would do it, but since I don't have it... gotta play with the fire :D

Re: Xfce running slow

if your intention is to just re-aquire the ntfs and not retain anything in it pertaining to windows OS, your probably ok to format it for use with linux via ext4,...i may have misunderstood your intention with it.

Re: Xfce running slow

you may need to wait for someone more knowledgeable then myself but to the best of my knowledge, i do not believe that windows ntfs is in any way compatable with ext4 (" I'm thinking of formatting the Windows partition from NTFS to Ext4") You mean to tell me that I am stuck forever with 500 GB of m...

sudo dpkg -r opera-stable And to remove the apt sources file added by Opera: sudo rm -f /etc/apt/sources.list.d/opera-stable.list or possibly When you install via the downloaded .deb binaries/installer and not the opera repository for Opera, then it was installed with dpkg, and not apt-get.

Re: Xfce running slow

Probably. It's a bit of a risky operation for a newcomer, and I wouldn't bet the farm on it going right at this time; that said, this should in principle be possible. I would make very sure I have a backup of the entire home partition, since it would need to be moved do the whole operation from a l...

Re: Xfce running slow

I can remove it from my menu if I so desire. How I wished I had that possibility, too! :) It seems that you do . I mean, I know about that menu, it's just that it doesn't work... like many other things on my computer apparently. For example, right now I'm creating some mindmaps with the "Labyrinth ...

Re: Xfce running slow

I was wondering, however.... do these orphaned entries in the menu affect the running of Linux, or are they harmless? They still bother me visually, but if they have no impact on the behavior of the system I'm willing to let it go, cause it's better than re-installing Linux. What do you think? Even...

Re: Xfce running slow

that is what the second one was supposed to do...yes, i always reboot after something like that myself...when rebooted, try to right click on opera or any other icon left over just to see if by right clicking on it you will see a "remove" or delete prompt. No change. Just rebooted seconds ago and t...

Re: Xfce running slow

Do any options come up if you rightclick them? 'Uninstall', for example? Or is there a menu editor that you can use to clean house? (I don't use XFCE much so I don't know). There is no "uninstall" option. Right, too bad. That leaves my second question. Not sure what a menu editor is (probably an ap...

Xfce running slow

Guys... guys?? I think I may have done something to my Linux because everything is running soooooo slow. Initially, I thought it was the browser (Palemoon), cause I have added some extensions to it and now there are moments (MANY of them each day) when the sites I'm accessing simply won't load (they...

Re: order of tabs in the taskbar

Yeah, that would be me. I have a workspace for chat (mostly using Pidgin), one for my browser, one for my email, and one for various other stuff such as image editing. So, you're using an entire workspace only for ONE application? Why not use both Pidgin, and the email on the same workspace? Becaus...
