In the Unix world with the X Window System (X11)¹, there's no concept of “application”. There are several concepts that overlap but don't match exactly: packages — the name you select in a package manager to install the application. If you don't install it via a package manager, there may not be a formal package name. A package may include multiple ...

There is a better solution. In /etc/xdg/xfce4/xfconf/ you find the default config tree for all users. It has the same style as the tree in ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf, so you can just copy the settings you want as default in this place. Or you provide just a part of it (make sure every single file is valid XML).

Not possible in xfwm4, because the window switcher always represents your current window stack.

If those settings are not applied, than your desktop is broken. Is xfsettingsd running and reacting? Is xfwm4 running and reacting? Join me in IRC for live help

Looks like your UPower is broken. Xfpm4 reacts to signals from UPower over dbus to adjust the icon. And that's it. If UPower doesn't communicate this in the right way, xfpm4 can't do much about this. Better ask your distributor to fix this.

You need to run xfce4-volumed with applied pulse audio patches. Please be aware that with the deprecation of gstreamer0.10 and its mixer interface in favor of gst1.0, xfce4-mixer and xfce4-volumed became deprecated. Use xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin and pavucontrol instead.

You can use pavucontrol to set the default (and fallback) audio output device. But this needs pulseaudio (one of the reasons pulse was developed).

You need xfce4-session, or else your desktop will not run properly (yes, I'm serious). Are you running xfwm4? Do you have a saved session? Is xfsettingsd running? Oh, and don't use Xfce4.8 anymore. It's horrible outdated and does things the wrong way (like thunar-vfs).

In fact a simplified form of that command works: catfish --path=%f In Thunar, go to Edit - Configure custom actions, and edit the Search action.

That is possible using xfconf-query (I think it's already installed on your system), but is not going to be convenient (there are a few hundred of properties, so finding the right one to edit wouldn't ever be fast). Official documentation is here.

There is an open feature request for this here: https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12062 It is not too hard to make the changes and recompile xfce4-power-manager by yourself from the source. My specific version was here: http://archive.xfce.org/xfce/4.10/src/xfce4-power-manager-1.2.0.tar.bz2 Unpack it, cd to the directory, type ./configure at the ...

There are a few things to check here. Check the integrity of the cable by connecting that same cable to another laptop (maybe a friends) or to a desktop PC (if you have one). I know you mentioned this in your post, but it's good to double and triple check. Another check would be to connect that same patch cable from your modem to your ...

Not sure about PulseAudio, but this thing always was glitchy for me so I stick to just Alsa now. I googled a bit and you might need http://freedesktop.org/software/pulseaudio/pavucontrol/ to make it work. There is a known bug where amixer doesn't affect xfce4-mixer, and pavucontrol most likely patches it.

Based on the output of yum groupinfo Xfce (see below), you should be able to run: yum install Thunar xfce-utils xfce4-panel xfce4-session xfce4-settings xfconf xfdesktop xfwm4 NetworkManager-gnome Terminal gdm leafpad openssh-askpass orage polkit-gnome thunar-archive-plugin thunar-volman tumbler xfce4-appfinder xfce4-icon-theme xfce4-mixer ...

You can get the xfce panel configuration inside /home/user/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-panel.xml

I fixed the issue by removing the default evince and installing the evince-gtk package.

Ok, so this issue was caused by my USE flags being too restrictive in make.conf: I had USE="-jpeg -png". Once I removed the above USE flags and rebuilt all packages which needed rebuilding with sudo emerge --update --newuse @world, my desktop background can back after logging out and back in again. Thanks to "iamben" in the #gentoo room on IRC for nudging ...
