Re: Resizing windows difficult

Try ALT-SPACE and see if a menu comes up.
Then you'll get some resizing options.

Re: [SOLVED] Simple windows RDP client for linux that just works

I use Teamviewer on Linux/Windoze PCs. Teamviewer is great and I use it for customer support - especially when the host is behind a firewall or NAT, or adhoc access is required. But for accessing a PC on the LAN, opensource always wins! I also like tigervnc to access linux GUI, and it works well wi...

[SOLVED] Simple windows RDP client for linux that just works

There are many RDP clients on linux, the simplest is probably 'rdesktop' , the friendliest and most powerful is 'remmina'. I like simple, and command line driven, so I use rdesktop. Connecting to win7 from rdesktop: Use '-u <USERNAME>' to use one of the windows accounts (rdesktop uses your linux log...

[SOLVED] Sorting USB / SD card for mp3 player

Many car stereo mp3 players use fat32 formatted usb or sd card for storage. This file system stores files in the order they were copied, and many mp3 players don't sort by filename, but simply play in the order the files were stored. Simple solution - apt-get install fatsort Get info on your device ...

[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...

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...

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.

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...

I kind of found it - something in the settings window is affecting it.

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. ...
