Inside seahorse: "Right click on "Login keyring", and select "Change Password", then change it to be the same as your login password. The next time you log in (even with KDE), the Login keyring will be unlocked." http://linuxfollies.blogspot.com/2012/12/changing-gnome-keyring-password.html

Access Nautilushelp (click on Files on top bar then select Help) and then navigate to Tips and questions > Templates for commonly-used document types: There is something missing from the documentation: you have to add your Templates location to your xdg-user-dirs, e.g. if you set your templates dir as ~/Templates you'll have to add the following line ...

You used the same key binding to try to do different things: the correct ones are: gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings switch-applications "[]" gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings close "[]"

I thought the 'standard' variant of Ubuntu was using the Unity desktop environment and Ubuntu Gnome was one of the official flavors sponsored/recognized by Canonical. I do not have the usage stats handy but use Ubuntu Gnome as the sole OS on a MacBook Air (2014 mode year) and like it very much. Gnome is, if I remember correctly, is lighter than the ...

Are you talking about the archive? Having a big archive is generally good; lots of packages available. Or are you asking about the disk usage of a default install? You should be able to do a minimal install that uses less than 2GB, but it's been ages since I looked at debian-installer. You may still be able to preseed the installer with a package ...

"standard" Ubuntu is the GNOME version. There's Xubuntu (XFCE), Kubuntu (KDE), and Lubuntu (lightweight). This only affects the initial set of packages that gets installed. After install, you just have an Ubuntu system configured to start one or the other graphical desktop by default. Kubuntu for example installs the kubuntu-desktop meta-package (which ...

After installing Kali 2.0, I found out that my Nvidia driver GT 320M was not supported by Kali 2.0. I had to downgrade to Kali 1.1. Your problem could be similar to mine.

The reason why Gnome behave differently in Centos compared to Fedora is because Centos uses Gnome classic and Fedora use the "regular" gnome as default. To get the "overview screen" instead, you just have to logout and select "Gnome" instead of "Gnome classic", see figure below.

I suspect the solution will not be found using VNC; I think VNC will only give you one window at a time. maybe consider an X agent on your client host, and port the display back to your client via xdmcp and the DISPLAY variable? I'm not sure you'll see success there either, but I suspect the chances are higher. Good luck!

Here I described my solution to the problem for Gnome 3.16 (Fedora 22): https://ivand0.wordpress.com/2015/08/22/changing-active-window-title-bar-color-in-gnome-3-16/ It might not be 100% precise though since I wrote it down 2 weeks after actually doing it.

After reading a little bit on assigning modifiers, following the hint from Gilles, I came up with key <TAB> { [ BackSpace ] }; key <CAPS> { [ Control_L ] }; key <LCTL> { [ Tab ] }; key <MENU> { [ Alt_R ] }; modifier_map Control { <CAPS> }; modifier_map Mod1 { Alt_L, Alt_R, <MENU> }; This solves problems 1 and 2. ...

Kubuntu is the only distribution that I know which had a setting for mouse scroll. Although, it is possible that any KDE-based distro make this setting available out-of-box. In Kubuntu 12.04 release, you can look into System Settings > Input Devices > Mouse > Advanced. The last line contains this option: Mouse wheel scrolls by: (Default is set to 3 lines). ...

To install Catalyst 15.7 on Kali 2.0 we have to be very careful. I try to explain briefly where the driver is installed. First of all, we know that Kali 2.0 is based on Debian 8, therefore, when the X server starts loading the driver modules, it does so within the directory /usr/lib. This happens in Debian. When the installation script of Catalyst starts ...

Well, this is weird, I did what don_crissti said and ran 'gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme' which printed 'Adwaita' as expected. But after that, I ran 'gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme Arc-Darker which now works. After a restart, which I had already tried before. Thanks for helping

Some time ago I try to install Catalyst 15.7 in most Linux distributions with GNOME and after several attempts I managed to install it. In this answer I will show you how to install Catalyst 15.7 on Debian 8 regardless of the desktop environment that you use. Just to clarify, I have used this procedure in the following desktop environments: KDE GNOME ...

As far as I know Adwaita GTK theme is for both GTK3 and GTK2, but the theme you installed (Evopop-gtk-theme) seems to work only for GTK3. So that's why GTK2 applications look ugly. The way to fix it is to install lxappearance (or any other GTK2 config tool, but this one is lightweight and has no dependencies) and set GTK2 theme to something similar to your ...

update-alternatives --install /etc/alternatives/x-session-manager \ gnome-session-classic /usr/bin/gnome-session-classic 99 Should do the trick.
