One of the questions you ask is: "Is there a program that provides an x11 xserver inside a window?" It sounds like Xnest might answer that question. Xnest is "A nested X server that runs as an X application". I know that I've used it in the past to show me unusual window managers that I had compiled from source, and didn't want to have crash my whole ...

Headerbar/CSD Actually, a section of the code that I found via reddit and posted above, namely headerbar entry, headerbar spinbutton, headerbar button, headerbar separator { margin-top: 2px; /* same as headerbar side padding for nicer proportions */ margin-bottom: 2px; } DOES modify the headerbars/CSDs. However the effect is not immediate. Even ...

You can do that via System Settings > Keyboard (or gnome-control-center keyboard in terminal): go to Typing and set Modifiers-only switch to next source to Caps Lock Alternatively, set the corresponding xkb option (which is what the above does underneath) via gsettings or dconf: navigate to org > gnome > desktop > input-sources and add grp:caps_toggle to ...

None of this worked for me until I edited the following file and removed the SchemeAlias line: /usr/share/gvfs/mounts/sftp.mount [Mount] Type=sftp Exec=/usr/lib/gvfs/gvfsd-sftp AutoMount=false Scheme=sftp # SchemeAliases=ssh DefaultPort=22 HostnameIsInetAddress=true

According to my tests it should be equivalent to empty trash contents every 30 days This is what I did: At 1:45 PM I cleared the trash and set the privacy options to purge after 1 hour and rebooted the machine, just to be sure. I then deleted two (several months old) files and executed a script that creates a file and moves it to trash - every 12 ...

It doesn't work as that's one of the default gnome-shell shortcuts. So gnome-shell actually grabs it even if you set it to execute some custom action. You'll have to remove it first from the default shortcuts list - easiest way is via terminal with gsettings: gsettings set org.gnome.shell.keybindings toggle-message-tray "['<Super>v']" alternatively, ...

I guess the reason is /etc/profile.d/bundler-exec.sh: line 12: `bundler-installed': not a valid identifier in journalctl.log Can you provide this file?

If Gnome doesn't have anything built in, you can write a script to do it. The following loads random wallpapers from ~/wallpapers on three monitors, assumed to be arranged left-to-right with each monitor being 1680 pixels wide. It uses xloadimage (see Multiple images on root window with ImageMagick). Adjust the monitor sizes and the wallpaper locations as ...

I forgot something else. If I can't write to a file, I can still remove it and replace it. And that's exactly the correct way to save a file. (Because you have to fsync() before you have a durable file, which you can safely replace the old one with). It seems to work fine, you just have to ignore the padlocks :). E.g. I can rotate photos copied in by ...
