This is a window manager theme (Xfce window manager), as you can tell by the presence of only the xfwm4 folder inside the theme zip. You can access it in Settings Manager -> Window Manager -> Style As an alternative install location, if you are the only user in your system, create a .themes (mind the dot) folder inside your home directory and unzip your ...

I had the same issue in mint 17 xfce (with both wm shortcuts like Ctrl-F1 and keyboard shortcuts like Alt-F2). I don't like the way how I fixed it but I could not find a better solution. First, I searched for all keyboard configuration files: $ locate xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml ...

I would love to see that feature myself, but I don't think it's possible. If an application takes a long time to start, there could be any number of things causing that: Whatever launched it could be slow to fork and execute it The filesystem could be slow to access the application's executable file (especially if, for example, it's a network filesystem) ...

This zoom mode is traditionally bound to Ctrl+Alt+Keypad + to zoom in and Ctrl+Alt+Keypad - to zoom out. These keys are not available if the DontZoom option is set in the ServerFlags section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf. This feature is operated by the server, I don't know how to set it from a client. The xrandr command may influence it with its --scale option, or ...

To change theme for your session, just edit the XFwm configuration file named xfwm4.xml and change Greybird with Daloa. Using sed you could simply do: sed -i 's/Greybird/Daloa/' ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfwm4.xml This will be effective the next time you logon to GUI. To change it for default new users starting GUI, the file is at /etc: ...

It indeed is a stupid and confusing system, designed to make people feel smarter and have superior I.T. knowledge than others when all they did was get lucky and chanced upon the explanation somewhere. On the positive side, it's ridiculous occurrences like these that help keep most people (and those trailing viruses and money-making 'create a need' schemes) ...

Believe it or not, my totally tech-naive partner solved the issue by changing the mouse. I still cannot fathom how the old mouse worked selectively in applications and stopped to work in the desktop environment, but here we go.

After some trial and error on my part, I've worked out the behaviour of focus-follows-mouse on Xfce. When focus-follows-mouse is enabled, clicking the window button for each window will bring that window forward, but not give it focus. Clicking the window button of a focused window will minimize it, even if it's not at the front.brings it to the front, if ...

sudo apt-get remove libreoffice orage brasero exfalso quodlibet gimp imagemagick ristretto xsane orage is an xfce4 dependency in at least Ubuntu, therefore removing orage will also remove xfce. To avoid this, verify the packages that will be removed are the ones you intended when using apt-get remove.

You can do this with screen in detached mode. Put something like this in your startup script: screen -d -m /opt/matlab_2013b/bin/matlab It will create a detached screen session, which should allow the script to start. You can attach to the screen session as normal at any time. You can almost certainly achieve the same effect with tmux, but I haven't used ...
