After Update to LM 19.3 xfce wrong maximize behaviour

Hi, I am using two display, one display a Benq 22'', the second one a Paperlike Pro (detected as 28'', which in fact is wrong, but that does not matter). My configuration is: (LM XFCE 19.3) - Benq display DVI, position 0,0, resolution 1680x1050 - Paperlike pro display HDMI, position 0,0 as well, res...

Re: xfce4-quicklauncher vanished after upgrade to LM 19.3

Hi ajgringo619,

your solution worked for me as well, thank you.

A bit off-topic: Nevertheless it's kind of unsatisfactory having to do this workaround, so I am not quite sure, whether I should mark this as "solved". I did it anyway.

Thanks.

[SOLVED] xfce4-quicklauncher vanished after upgrade to LM 19.3

After upgrade to LM Tricia my quicklauncher panel was removed. Well, no problem, i thought, just do a fresh install of quicklauncher using application manager. Ok, it's in the repositories, clicked install, but unortunately installation failed due to a dependency error. xfce4-quicklauncher-plugin: D...

[SOLVED] After update to LM 19.3 icon font color wrong

Hello, after updating to LM 19.3 some strange behaviours occur. I am using XFCE + Thunar. My first action was to reset xfce settings bei removing .config/xfce4, which works well in the sense that I got a fresh clean start. I use a Dasung Paperlike Pro E-Ink-Display I changed background to white, ico...

I use the Paperlike for office work and the normal monitor, well, for all other things using colour. Each time I switch monitors I man...

Re: Tara 19 does not unlock keyring

Good news:
Changing my password to e.g. "someotherpasswd", reboot, changing again to "myoldpassword", reboot. After that the issue was resolved.
:D

I suggest to mark the problem as SOLVED.

Re: Tara 19 does not unlock keyring

Well, I got the same/similar problem. Although I do *not* use auto-login, opera/chrome demands to unlock the keyring. And I did not change my password, I just did an upgrade from LM 18.3 to LM 19.1. Seems to me as if the format of the password encryption scheme may have changed, so that LM falsely a...

Re: Random System Hangups -- at wit's end

Well, I updated my originally installed LM 18.2 xfce some days ago using normal update process - and since then I got the same effect you described. I am hitting myself for ignoring the well known advice never to change a running system. Before that update all was excellent. Therefore I do *not* sus...

I have some software from earlier times which I only have got as a rpm-package, i.e. MuPad. LM requires to use deb-package. I read something about converting rpm to deb using alien.

Re: emergency mode: LM refuses root password

I finally found the solution: My password contains digits. When emergency mode comes up, my keyboard indicates "NumLock On", the green LED is shining brightly. But: It's a "fake light". In truth, NumLock is off. So, typing a digit at the numerical keypad translate not to digits. Naturally, now the t...

Re: emergency mode: LM refuses root password

Hi fabien85, unfortunately I did not change my password, it's still the same from the beginning of install. And yes, I can su root with this password. Looks like in emergency mode there is another root, which would be really weird. If you were me, would you give a try to change the root pwd from wit...

Re: emergency mode: LM refuses root password

Have you by chance changed your password (not root's password) since installation? No, my password is still the same as at the time of Installation. Of course, I could take a chance and now change my pwd and then check out if this weird phenomena will occur afterwards, too. But - it's my productive...

Re: Firefox shall use Thunar instead of Dolphin

Well, yes, it's seems to be a bug.

OK, but apart from that I do did a...
