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?

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.

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. ...

I had the same issue and I finally resolved it. Since there is no way to solve this with Xfce alone, one needs the small tool ksuperkey. It was originally developed for KDE, but it works fine on other desktops. You basically install ksuperkey or compile it yourself, and bind your menu to "alt+f1". Once you run ksuperkey, the superkey will behave as one would ...

The man page for xfce4-terminal specifies using the --geometry option to set the size and placement of a terminal. This option takes "the form -geometry WIDTHxHEIGHT+XOFF+YOFF (where WIDTH, HEIGHT, XOFF, and YOFF are numbers) for specifying a preferred size and location for this application's main window." Refer to the "Geometry Specifications" section ...

Well there is xfce4-popup-notes that can make notes visible but does not toggle it! Although you have to use the Esc key to hide it again!

I initially tried editing /usr/share/applications/vim.desktop. I commented out #Exec=vim %F and added Exec=xfce4-terminal -e 'vim %F'. This worked for a while and then it started opening both Xterm and Xfce4 Terminal. Instead in Thunar I right clicked on a txt file. I went to Properties > Open With: > Other Application > Use a custom command. I added xfce4-...

In 16.04 display 'vid:*.webp' Since 16.04 imagemagick does support webp, although it apparently delegates decoding to webp, so webp is needed: sudo apt-get install webp

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 can work around this problem by setting the menu exec or .desktop file exec to: xfce4-terminal -e "vim"

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.

The .svg files for the country flags in xfce4 are located in the /usr/share/xfce4/xkb/flags/ directory.

These actions already exist for the Window Manager of XFCE/Xubuntu, it's a matter of binding them to proper keys! You can do this through the GUI. Just go to Settings, Window Manager, and click the Shortcuts tab. The actions you are looking for are named Tile window to the left, Tile window to the top-right, etc.

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'm using 2 panels. It is possible to add an app to both of the panels. Open menu and right click on the app and click "add to panel". Then select your desired panel.

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 > ...

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 ...

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 ...

You can use Catfish to search for files and it can be started from within the Whisker menu. In the Whisker menu properties "Search Actions" tab, create a new search entry with the following parameters: Name = Catfish Pattern = ~ Command = catfish --start %s *Note: you can use whatever pattern is most useful to you. Once this is done, simply enter in ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

You simply do not need one, XFCE is very customizable by default, you can do anything the tweak tools can do, right from the system settings. You can change theme and icons through Settings → Appearance and window borders through Settings → Window Manager. This link will give good detail on changing the various theme components.

Right-click on start button and select Properties. Then uncheck both "show generic application names" and "Show menu hierarchy".

I believe the easiest way to do this is by using an application called MenuLibre. It is usually installed by default (under settings) but can be installed with sudo apt-get install menulibre if not. BTW, the application appears in the menu as "Menu Editor".

I've just encountered this problem on Xubuntu 16.04, and I too wanted both ssh-agent and gpg-agent working. Firstly, I didn't care about gnome-keyring, so I removed all related packages. eg. sudo dpkg -P libgnome-keyring-common libgnome-keyring0 libp11-kit-gnome-keyring libpam-gnome-keyring libgnomeui-0 python-gnome2 gir1.2-gnomekeyring-1.0 system-config-...

Here's what I did in Xubuntu 16.04 I remove the indicator applet. The Dropbox icon appeared. I added the indicator applet. Moved it to where it was before. Done ! To get Dropbox integration in Thunar: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xubuntu-dev/extras sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install thunar-dropbox-plugin

Fortunately, Dropbox recently expanded their CLI capabilities to include sharelinks etc. To integrate Dropbox into Thunar do the following: Initial Setup Create a ~/bin directory in your home folder if not already created. Download the Dropbox python script. Rename it as just dropbox. (The extension is not needed.) Make it executable chmod +x ~/bin/dropbox....
