XFCE doesn't include a display manager, but other desktop environments do (GNOME has GDM, LXDE as LXDM, KDE has KDM, Unity has LightDM), and most display managers come with a default greeter. So, in effect, once you pick a ...

Ok, got the answer for my first question. I added the repo and looked at its content in synaptic. What you see there is a bunch of packages. Some I have installed (since I have xfce 4.10). For those, some are up-to-date but others have a newer release. The key is then to contrast the version of those newer packages with the stable release. And, voila, for ...

When you run this command: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.12 and this message appears: Xfce 4.12 packages for currently supported versions of Xubuntu.

pkill worked but seemed a little extreme to me. If I had other stuff going on in other tty sessions it would kill those too. Another solution is: sudo restart lightdm A great strength of Linux is that there are always multiple ways to achieve the same task.

In Appearance > Style, I am using Orion. I believe similar steps would apply for any theme. sudo gedit /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf Then I changed this line to Orion: theme-name=Orion sudo gedit /usr/share/themes/Orion/gtk-3.0/gtk.css Then I changed this line to my custom green hexadecimal number: @define-color selected_bg_color #94C565; ...

Yes, you just install maximus... sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install maximus Then, open a run dialog Ctrl + F2 and type: maximus (you may have to log out and then back in) . Some windows like firefox will open with the window showing and all you have to do is use the mouse to tug down and then slam back up against the top panel to get it to go ...

During boot Ubuntu runs a script /etc/init.d/ondemand that waits one minute, then sets ondemand mode. You can make a change to that script such that it sets powersave mode instead. Note that doing so, and with the acpi-cpufreq driver, your CPUs will always be at the very minimum clock frequency.

I don't have much experience in this area, but you could try creating a script to run those commands in that order and setting it up to run a startup. You could also try going into your panel settings and unchecking the box labeled "Automatically show and hide the panel".
