Re: Mint 19 - xdotool

mint4all - xdotool keydown <key> and xdotool key <key> and xdotool keyup <key> are valid syntax with slightly different effects. Have a closer look at man xdotool. key Down emulates pressing and releasing the Down arrow key. squalo - your original constructions fails on Mint Cinnamon 19 as-well wit...

Re: Mint 19 - xdotool

Thanks. This works for me now on Mint19Mate , activating first the window. But my old script had worked also all the time on 16.04 Ubuntu-Mate. So somehow it must (have been) worked sending keystrokes to other windows. Greetings! I am using xdotool for a special project (display/hiding of a tablet-...

Re: I lose display settings!

@ pstrbrc... I've checked out your proposed xml-tweak @ https://codebeautify.org/xmlviewer# ... It looks like you have an extra </property> statement at the bottom, and the "Notify" key has no such </property> statement (may not be needed as it is at the end of your xml file). Anyhow, even though x...

I do not observe this problem on this nor on another 4 systems (@ 18.3), nor on a 12yo Toshiba laptop running LM19.0-xfce. None of the systems have th...

Re: Launch Panel won;t dock to bottom of screen

Greetings! According to the manufacturer, your laptop's native display resolution is 1080x600 pixels. However, your system's info shows a resolution of 1024x576 pixels -- 24 vertical pixels short of the 600 pixels the GPU allows for. Sooo, somehow, Xfce's bottom panel (aka Task Bar) appears to be "l...

Re: Laptop - Mint 19 XFCE - Energy / Display issues !!!

Thanks for the info. I can't provide the output because the laptop is in use in our barn right now. It doesn't have email either since we use it strictly for media purposes and a little browsing. The laptop is indeed old, an older Asus G2S Gaming Laptop. It has Nvidea graphics, but I'm using the de...

Re: Panel Preferences

Greetings!

Before suggesting a workaround, what appearance-"theme" are you using? There are 2 settings to check: Menu > Settings > Appearance > "Style" tab; and Menu > Settings > Window Manager > "Style" tab. Thanks for checking.

Cheers, m4a

Re: Xfce - mouse pointer drag / select issues

Hmm. Interesting. I still had occasional issues with the new mouse. I switched the usb hub I had the mouse connected to, and so far so good. Not sure if that is a coincidence as I have also disabled all compositing and am just using xfwm4 as the window manager. :?: Greetings! Fwiw, there's ONE sett...

Re: Getting rid of overlay scrollbars

Glad to see it working for you :D ... My humble answer to your 3 scenarios: it all has to do with a particular switch-setting's "scope" -- simply speaking, who "sets" the variable, and who "sees" it. If we exclude hacks & exploits for a moment, a "parent" process sets it, and a "child" process sees,...

Re: Mintstick exfat

Sorry, my fault :oops: I developed the exFAT support. Due to a mixup on my end one line of my code hasn't made it into the release; rather crucial, it's the line that adds exFAT to that selection box. The rest of the code to support exFAT is in place, you just can't select it... Doh! I've submitted...

Re: Mintstick exfat

After looking at the source code ( @ https://github.com/linuxmint/mintstick/blob/master/lib/mintstick.py ) it would appear that "exFat" was somehow omitted from the file-system choices. Is that what passes for acceptable code nowadays? Yeow. Not being a python-aty myself, i'd rather give the devs t...
