The best way I could find is to use a script, since "Find commands" doesn't accept some bash commands, like xargs: Create a script with any name, in this case we will call it search: #!/bin/bash find /my/path -name "*$1*" | head -5 | xargs nemo Make the file executable: chmod +x search Then in the "Find commands" insert: /path/to/my/script/search %s ...

Items can be added to XFCE4 menu very quickly. But before answering I want to mention that I will be using images to clarify things. You first need to cd into $HOME/.local/share/applications/ from your terminal and then follow the steps: Run exo-desktop-item-edit ./Firefox.desktop - this will launch a new window which can be used to create the desktop icon ...

Except for the profile picture, what you want to do is normally done through the "Users and Groups" dialog. If for some reason it's unavailable through your GUI, it can be run from the command line with the command system-config-users. If the command's not found, you should be able to install it from your repo. As far as I know, no one's yet gotten around ...

To verify the timezone of your system (mine is Europe/Berlin), run $ cat /etc/timezone Europe/Berlin If it is wrong, run sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata and choose America, then Recife and check if the printed local time is now correct. You can also print the UTC date with date -u which should be your local time +3 hours.

If the time difference is exactly one hour, it's most likely not a time issue, but a time zone issue. Maybe you don't need ntp, you just need to set the right time zone. This answer might help.

You should be able to do so using ntp or ntpdate. apt install ntpdate ntpdate pool.ntp.org ntpdate is mostly useful for one-time synchronizations. Whereas the ntp daemon would run in background, and keep your clock up to date: apt install ntp cat <<EOF >/etc/ntp.conf driftfile /var/lib/ntp/ntp.drift server pool.ntp.org restrict -4 default kod ...

An other alternative which does not rely on any "binary" dependency (like xdotool or wmctrl): https://github.com/AlexisBRENON/ewmh_m2m You can install it with pip (no need to copy it manually, make it executable, etc.) It handle multiple screens with different layouts (horizontal, vertical, mixed) Keep window/screen ratio when moving between screens of ...

Well, technically, there is a solution, although I'm not sure you'll like it: Set the shortcut for Window Manager -> Keyboard -> Switch window for same application from the default Super + Tab to Alt + Tab. This won't come with the regular nice visual window list of the normal window switching command though, and also behaves differently in that it ...

Use the noninteractive debconf frontend: export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt install -y xfce4 This will prevent the packages from asking questions, and the defaults will be chosen.

As of version 4.14.0, xfwm does not offer the functionality to add a 'fullscreen' button to window decoration. Even if it did though, window decorations disappear in fullscreen mode, so it could not be used to turn the mode off. The same caveat applies to solutions using panel widgets and even always-on-top overlay windows. If you want a bidirectional ...

I see that this question is old but still I faced the same problem and the issue was in overriden ~/.gtkrc-2.0 that was created by kde installation somehow. So this issue is fixed by removing this file.

Launch Xfce4 Panel Preferences. Under Items add a custom Launcher (the top option). Edit the launcher by clicking on the gear icon. Then click on the blank sheet with a plus button. Next add the following next to Command:. bash -c 'display_hide () { xfconf-query -c xfce4-panel -p /panels/panel-1/autohide-behavior $1 $2; }; [[ $(display_hide) == 2 ]] &&...

It may be an effect of Nvidia's "Dynamic Contrast Enhancement", which can apparently be disabled through the Nvidia Control Panel.

By request, my comment posted as an answer: xfdesktop docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfdesktop/start Unfortunately, I don't have any directly pertinent details, as I've never pursued replacement of xfdesktop with a file manager's desktop handling functionality or anything else. I did do a brief search of replace "xfdesktop" on DuckDuckGo and found (four pages deep in ...

So, as said in the question, Thunar removal is not needed. (If it was removed, it can be re-installed; in Mint it's sudo apt install thunar mint-meta-xfce thunar thunar-archive-plugin thunar-media-tags-plugin thunar-volman xfce4-places-plugin.) The whole problem is related to identifying the Xfce desktop manager. I have received an answer to that question: ...

The problem's solution was very simple. It said "Default" because I tried to login with the "Default" user name and not my user name. I just had to click on my name. Why and when the Default user was created or its purpose, I have no idea about.

It turns out that xfwm4-themes has been dropped from buster because it is no longer supported upstream. I've downloaded and installed the .deb from my stretch machine and so far it's working. I guess I risk some kind of compatibility problem when xfce goes up a version, but I'll live with that for now.
