Sufficiently advanced window managers (including Sawfish, Awesome, Fvwm, …) let you define per-window key bindings. Primitive window managers such as Metacity and Mutter (the Gnome defaults) don't. If you want to configure your window environment to do what you want rather than stick to some basic defaults, I recommend using a more advanced window manager. ...

No. If you open up a terminal you could define wireless networks and connections by using wifi-menu which I think is easiest and will automatically insert the Key and SSID in /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa-supplicant.conf

I think I found a bad workaround. If I run google-chrome --user-data-dir=XYZ then XYZ will be in the process name (as a parameter) so it is possible to grep it from process list and get its window ID. It is not perfect since have now two profiles now. But signing to same user name helps to sync it... hopefully...

Okay, so after I tried some more things I got another error: dconf-WARNING **: failed to commit changes to dconf: DBus.Error:org.gtk.GDBus.UnmappedGError.Quark._g_2dfile_2derror_2dquark.Code17: Cannot open dconf database: invalid gvdb header So I figured that meant something was wrong with ~/.config/dconf The solution was that I just deleted ~/.config/...

That is the default behaviour of slock, one of the screen-lockers used by default by xflock4 which in turn is the screen-locker script used by Xfce power manager, if I'm not mistaken, and other apps/widgets part of Xfce. When the computer is locked, it turns off the display and when you wake it, you need to type in your user password to unlock it. If you ...

Are you sure you reloaded awesome? You might want to try: https://awesomewm.org/doc/api/modules/awful.util.html#spawn_with_shell Or put something else in spawn to ensure your command is being run. Also, is gnome-screensaver-command in your path?

I had similar problem. VNC started, can connect, but empty desktop. Oracle Linux 7.2 (which is almost 1:1 from RHEL7.2) no errors, etc. I have checked commands executed in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc and has found that default (!!!!) window manager /usr/bin/twm file is not present in system (despite "Server with GUI" was selected as installation option). Easy ...

Although I think it can be changed by editing conf file, using the dropdown top-right of the lightdm login screen is easier. gnome or gnome-session is not appeared in the dropdown?
