Install 'dconf-editor' if you don't have. Launch it and go in left panel to org->gnome->mutter. There you can change value of 'overlay-key' to 'Control_L' or 'Control_R' or any other key if you want. Setting is applied instantly after closing edition (click some where else in dconf-editor).

I would suggest installing the application shutter for taking screenshots. Should be in the repos for Debian. The main site for the app is here: http://shutter-project.org/.      It allows you to configure the PrtScr button so that it captures the screen within Shutter, rather than use GNOME's method for capturing. It also allows you to ...

The screenshot recipe you are asking about uses the gnome-utils package. However, as you can check, the last Debian release that included that package was squeeze. Since the functionality you describe uses gnome-utils, and since that package is no longer in Debian, it is not surprising the method does not work. Additionally you can check the info tab of ...

This is not possible as the XDG specification defines specific directory names only for certain roles (example XDG_DOCUMENTS_DIR, XDG_DOWNLOAD_DIR, or XDG_MUSIC_DIR; try man xdg-user-dirs-update to see them all). Various libraries (e.g. glib or GTK+ for GNOME) implement the spec and will perform special operations for only those directories in the spec. So ...

Hmmm, strange but found the issue: Including CONFIG_DRM and CONFIG_DRM_KMS_HELPER instead of building it them as a module did the trick. GNOME now starts as usual.

Not sure where to start here. Gnome is a GUI user environment, not an OS. try lsb_release -a to see what version of Linux you're running. /dev/sda is the raid set and does not correspond to either physical disk. You do not have a master/slave relationship in raid 1 so saying "mirrored drive" and "normal drive" are meaningless. You can check what kind of ...

You can use fc-match to see which fonts match that pattern: # fc-match "Monospace" DejaVuSansMono.ttf: "DejaVu Sans Mono" "Book" To see the whole priority list matching that pattern, use: fc-match --sort "Monospace" Reference: man fc-match fc-match matches pattern (empty pattern by default) using the normal fontconfig matching rules ...

The program xchainkeys does what you need, plus some useful variants of it. It is independent of the desktop environment. A possible configuration is to have something like a mode, where you do not need to repeat the prefix key for a series of hotkeys; With this, instead of Super+K Left Super+K Down typing Super+K Left Down is enough.

killall may be you friend here. You can kill all processes by name, there are also options for older-than. e.g. killall -I --older-than=1d nautilus to kill all nautilus older than 1 day.

You set environment variables in a process and they are inherited by all the child processes. Exactly how you go about that depends on where you want it to be available. You don't have to modify any GLib configuration, though. To set an environment variable for programs started from your shell (I'll assume Bash here), you can write: export ...

What do you get from a: yum search pptp ppp is it anything like: [root@localhost src]# yum search pptp ppp Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * base: centos.openitc.uk * extras: centos.hyve.com * updates: centos.openitc.uk ===================================================================== N/S matched: pptp ...

Okay, so I managed to solve it - maybe it's not the most elegant way but it works and it's good enough. First I wrote a small script: #!/bin/sh i3lock -i ~/Pictures/lock.png Saved it (e.g. .locker) to the HOME address, then I ran "chmod +x .locker" so I could execute it and at the Custom Shortcuts to the Command line I wrote ./.locker Choose an ...
