There is a good solution on ubuntuforums from go4unkwn2: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2232021 He wrote two scripts, one for backing up ~/.config/xfce4/desktop/icons* files, and second for writing them back from the backup. I would just add a small enhancement - make an entry in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf to run the first script at xfce session ...

I know this is a dated problem, but it STILL exists till today. See e.g. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xfce4-settings/+bug/1180120 Until the xfce guys can get this straight, here are some sample scripts that could be used to fix the problem. It applies to a single-xfce4-session kind of situations (which covers the majority of user case), i.e. ...

The solution to this is setting the nomodeset kernel option after installing the driver. A good tutorial for Ubunutu for that would be here.

usr/local/chroots/precise does not exist; cannot update. This means there is no chroot called "precise". when you do a distribution upgrade, the name of the chroot changes. Since you went from precise to trusty, you need to update crouton so that it knows there's a newly named chroot: Code:sudo -e ~/Downloads/crouton -u -n elementary

I installed CAELinux using the Ubuntu 12.04 and had the same problem. I just installed "BLEACHBIT" and ran the entire utility. Now the dissapearing/Flickering cursor problem is resolved along with some much needed performance issues. Go figure.

XNViewMP can view WebP files. Though Tumbler has yet to implement WebP, so the files won't be able to be viewed as thumbnails within Thunar.

The reason it is saying temporarily unavailable is because you are stopping the process by clicking the [x], when it is running and you let it run for a couple of seconds you see the frame rate in the terminal, right? When you stop the process then it cannot tell you the frame rate, therefor the resource becomes unavailable, nothing to worry about.

Xfce can replicate exactly what your screen shot above does. Here is my screen shot of something very similar I have created on my desktop. (Please overlook minor aesthetics like color etc.) Open Panel Preferences and set Mode to Deskbar. Go ahead and add your program launchers. These can be dragged from your menu. You will also want to add the other ...

Have you tried installing the base xfce desktop package called "xfce4"? Installing that will install the base xfce desktop, without all of the extra packages used by Xubuntu (eg, gnome-dependencies, xubuntu artwork, etc). This way you wouldn't have more than one text editor, update manager, cd burner, audio player, etc (because thay are all required by ...

There is a .deb called "Docky" on the Ubuntu Software Center that you can put on any edge of the screen. I've never had any problems with it and it looks much better than the default launcher.

I'm not sure how this could be done for Unity, for for the XFCE panel, you can right click the panel, go to "Panel Preferences" and make sure the "Lock Panel" is unchecked. Then you will get a couple of handles on the top and left with which you can drag the panel to the place of your liking. You can then go back and recheck the "Lock Panel" switch to lock ...

You can go to /usr/share/themes/YOUR-THEME to tweak the CSS. The main file for this is gtkrc often located in the gtk-2.0 directory. Be sure to read the comments in the document. Here is an example of an edit I made when the background color, bg_color, in the theme Greybird was a little too gray for me (/usr/share/themes/Greybird/gtk-2.0/gtkrc). # ...

Alright, so I stumbled upon the answer to my own question quite by accident. I probably should've mentioned this before, but I also tried to find out what keycode and keysym the power key was attached to through xev, but it registered nothing when the key was pressed. Anyhow, I just recently changed over from using the Xmonad window manager to the i3 ...

For whatever reason, my other monitor can't be used unless I suspend the system before I login. Every time I suspend, the monitor is able to work as an extended display (after I configure the settings). If I don't suspend, then the monitor will not function at all. It would be nice if I didn't have to suspend and configure the settings every time I want to ...
