[SOLVED] Claws open with - file association under XFCE

Using LM19 XFCE. Most of the time claws mail opens a file with the correct program when you hit the 'L' button. However sometimes it gets it wrong - such as choosing gimp to open pdf files instead of xreader. When you open Menu -> Mime type editor , it shows xreader first, followed by gimp and libre...

Re: [SOLVED] Power manager / screen lock problems on LM 19 XFCE

For final troubleshooting I verified that running: light-locker-command --lock does indeed lock the screen, as does CTRL-ALT-L. I then went back to the power manager -> Display tab, and disabled/enabled the power management switch. I also moved the slider to 1 minute. Screensaver started working ! N...

[SOLVED] Power manager / screen lock problems on LM 19 XFCE

Sorry for yet another post about screenlock on LM19 XFCE, but reading the previous discussions on the subject doesn't help. Goal - screen locks with password after 3 minutes of inactivity. Blank screen preferred. Real simple request, right? Well not in LM19. The screensaver program has been removed ...

Re: [SOLVED] How to use xfce4 terminal vim as claws-mail external editor

I will discard Claws-Mail in the near future, because it is too buggy What a coincidence you're saying that, because buggy thunderbird caused me to move to claws... I've got an old claws 3.11.1 from LM17.3 repo on my 2 PCs and it works fine. Perhaps there's something special about LM17.3 because it...

[SOLVED] Install shutter with edit button on LM 19 XFCE

Probably works for all LM 19 but I use XFCE so it's tested and working on XFCE. To use the edit button in Shutter requires some dependencies that are missing on LM 19 repo. If they are not met, shutter will still run, but the dependencies are greyed out. I did the process manually, but there are two...

Partially solved: Edit the file: /etc/default/grub : Edit this line to resemble: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nouveau.modeset=0" sudo update-grub Reboot to confirm that everything is working properly.

Re: LM 19 XFCE doesn't come out of sleep - xorg 100% CPU

Downgrading to the intel graphics driver and reboot, following by the same sleep test gives worse results! Coming out of sleep the screen gives a fast scrolling set of error messages that's too fast to read, and at 3200x1800 which is too small to read too! The only way to get the message was to take...

[ PARTIAL SOLVED] LM 19 XFCE doesn't come out of sleep - xorg 100% CPU

Asus UX303 laptop running LM19 XFCE clean install. I am running it with the nvidia drivers for the 940M processor. Put the laptop to sleep using Fn-F1 or close the lid. When the laptop lid is opened it should present the lock screen, but I get a blank screen and the laptop fan starts working hard. s...

Re: [SOLVED] No xscreensaver on 18.2 xfce clean install?

However, my question is, is there a way I can make the screensaver use only the photo images I have put in Pictures. I don't want the other random images that are already part of the screensaver programme. i was able to do this in 17.2, and can do it in Windows. This is a different topic and better...

Re: New Terminal shortcut key (CTRL ALT T) opens new terminal under active window

I kind of found it - something in the settings window is affecting it. I can't say precisely which setting damaged it because I made several changes to the settings including focus stealing prevention, etc. Also, I am using the rest of the system clean - before changing xterm settings and other cust...

Re: New Terminal shortcut key (CTRL ALT T) opens new terminal under active window

I tried to "damage" a new LM17.3 xfce clean install box by replicating all my "settings manager" and xfce terminal settings (including the terminalrc file I edited manually). No luck - it didn't break. Something else in my setup is affecting it, don't know what. Doesn't matter, I'll leave it as is. ...

Re: New Terminal shortcut key (CTRL ALT T) opens new terminal under active window

Thanks guys. Yes, "unfortunately" the focus setting and the keyboard shortcut are a described by forum members. What's surprising is the inconsistency of this behavior, or you may call it consistency in that it ALWAYS follows the pattern I described (foreground if another terminal window is in focus...

Re: New Terminal shortcut key (CTRL ALT T) opens new terminal under active window

Nope. I just held down CTRL + Alt and pressed t - which opened a terminal window on top of my maximized Firefox browser window. Mint 17.3 Xfce, 64-bit. Strange. All my 3 LM17.3 machines and one LM18.3 machine do this. I did CTRL ALT T now behind this vivaldi window and the terminal opened behind it...

When typing <CTRL ALT T> to open a new terminal, have you noticed the odd behavior that the terminal window opens BEHIND the active window if the active window is not another terminal !!! Then you need to <ALT TAB> once to bring it to the foreground as the active window. If the active window is alre...
