This is not a bug. The menu is for you to select a folder. Not a single file. You select the folder and when you click on Open, thumbnails of the images in that folder are created in the left window. You can then select any thumbnail you like and it automatically becomes the background image.

In MATE, right clicking on the menu and selecting "Edit menus" will get you the menu editor: Find the Telegram entries under the Internet category in the menu editor application, and uncheck one of them. The process is very similar for XFCE. Note that using this menu editor, you can completely customize the menu, move things around, and so on. It's pretty ...

Measuring speed between two environments is very subjective, and not something that can really be accurately and definitively "measured". It depends on the machine entirely. Yes, XFCE is supposed to average faster than GNOME, but it really does depend on the machine. My machine is System76's Serval WS. It has a M.2 drive, Nvidia 6 GB GeForce GTX 970M, 3.6 ...

With your computer you won't notice much difference. 5th generation i5's and a an SDD are a very good combination. The biggest difference you will see between xfce and gnome is in the amount of memory usage it takes. So if you are running a machine with only 1GB of ram then you will notice a significant difference.

You need to open Thunar, go to Edit and Configure custom actions. From there you will be able to add any options you'd like, such as to "Open with Atom" or anything else. I believe this is what you are trying to accomplish?

It's an old thread but my workaround for this problem on Xubuntu 14.04 is simple by just respawning gnome-keyring-daemon on Session and Startup. What you need to do is simply running command below: $ gnome-keyring-daemon --replace --daemonize --components=pkcs11,secrets,gpg We remove "ssh" from the component of Gnome keyring. Go to Menu > Settings > ...

There are 2 possible methods for fixing this issue, best tried in the order given here: Ensure Tumbler is installed: sudo apt-get install tumbler tumbler-plugins-extra Generate a new config file by closing Thunar and then running: mv ~/.config/Thunar ~/.config/Thunar.bak and then reopening Thunar. This will generate a new, default configuration file. ...

Choose a flag in .svg format. Go to (as Kevin Bowen mentions) /usr/share/xfce4/xkb/flags/ and copy the file wished-flag.svg in that directory (or rename), with the name shorthand-of-the-layout.svg For instance, the latam flag does not exist. By creating latam.svg and copying the icon there one gets rid of the no-flag problem.

Mostly no. To this answered date, Xfce has limited to no transitions for panels and icons. Nothing fancy, besides minimizing active applications window to the panel in Xfce. Xfce allows delay Delay is a transition or pseudo-animation in Xfce that I have tried before. This is documented as part of theming Xfce panel in this page of Xfce Docs. Requirement: ...

You mean these?: NOTE: Before doing this, restart the Xfce panel with xfce4-panel --restart in a Terminal. Here, I have a video that explains the process: Or, text explanation: Right click any indicator → Properties, which shall get you to this: Where you can hide indicators by the ticking the checkbox that says Hidden next to the indicator ...

WebUpd8 (the site you linked) has an updated instructions to make it work in Xubuntu 16.04. Some manual configurations are required such as creating a shell script in /etc/profile.d/topmenu-gtk.sh. Note that the functionality of TopMenu in Xubuntu16.04 is very limited compared to Ubuntu 14.04. It only works with GTK2 and 3 apps. Qt4 and Thunderbird support ...

I've created custom xorg.conf for Nvidia card for avoiding tearing (see below). As you can see main line there is: Option "metamodes" "nvidia-auto-select +0+0 { ForceFullCompositionPipeline = On }" In case of failure try to generate own xorg.conf. Each update of Nvidia's drivers can replace your xorg.conf, thats why just replace it again. This ...

This seems to still be an active issue. I found a solution for Studio Ubuntu 14.04 that should work for other xubuntus: Set your file manager to "show hidden files" Navigate to ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/ Open xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml in a text editor Look for two lines: <property name="<Alt>Tab" type="empty"> should be ...
