Re: lm19.2 kill x-system hotkey

Blind. I just didn't notice the entry in the startup apps setting. Perhaps it was named something else, previously. Thank you, I can turn it off now. however, your suggestion regarding setxkbmap -option . However, running setxkbmap -rules evdev doesn't restart it. The backspace key doesn't seem to h...

lm19.2 kill x-system hotkey

In LM 18.3 I could load the kill x-system as an applet, and run it via Ctrl-Alt-Bksp. Thus I could temporarily shut down the option if needed. In LM19.2 I have been mistakenly hitting Ctrl-Alt-Bksp, causing me to lose some work and having to reload everything. So I went to applets, thinking I had in...

Re: LM 19.2 xampp no longer starts at boot

Found the trouble. The instructions at the link above put all user input (except one) in \[code\] boxes. But the key instruction is buried in a screenshot, which I didn't read carefully. :mrgreen: After creating the xampp.service script in /etc/systemd/system per the instructions above, then enter s...

SOLVED LM 19.2 Cinn launch sound settings window from command line

Ideally I would like to assign a couple of hotkeys to select the audio output device. I often switch between standard audio output and my USB headphones. I need the headphones sometimes for privacy on Skype, or late in the evening so playing movies doesn't bother others. Right now I'm always clickin...

Re: SOLVED can't close font manager

Flemur, I wish my font-manager window looked like that, but it doesn't.

I'm using new-minty theme. Does that make a difference? BTW, what theme are you using?

Re: can't close font manager

Does alt+F4 do the job? What's the name the font manager has in the menu? I don't think I can reproduce this, but I'm unsure. Is it Font Selection or Fonts? - Name="Font Manager" - I installed it by sudo apt-get install font-manager. - alt-F4 works. - which font-manager yields "/usr/bin/font-manage...

I have a pair of USB headphone which show up in Sounds > Output as "CM108 Audio Controller".

SOLVED can't close font manager

just upgraded to LM 19.2

Font manager has no maximize-minimize-close buttons on the title bar. How do I close the application besides right-clicking the title bar?

Is this a bug or a feature of LM 19.2?

Re: Firefox Profile Missing Or Inaccessible

1. why I have a separate directory for FF (and indeed just about all of my special programs, such is IDEs, NEMO action, etc) is that I have identical setups on a laptop and my desktop. I sync the data between these things using rsync on a back-to-back ethernet null modem cable. I do this so that a s...

Copying the files from another installation into /etc/init.d and /etc/sane did the trick.
