To be thorough, when you login as "template" everything looks good? And "template"'s home is in /home/template? When I backup my XFCE home config files (I think they're all in ~/.config, just a few app specific ones in .local or .gconf) and a .gtkrc-xfce file that appears to only be "XfdesktopIconView" desktop settings, probably not critical but... And it ...

I guess you've got the wrong link. The file which actually contains the application is this one: Just download it using your browser. Then navigate to the directory where the file is located, right click it and unzip it. I guess some kind of executeable will get unpacked. Greetings, Didi

About the original question: I too am an xfce user and am somewhat visually impaired. I use the red pointer, but often can't find it in a cluttered desktop. Then I just use Alt+F1 which pulls up a file manager menu box. I don't need it, but it's always placed on the desktop with the cursor at one of its upper corners. Once I've located the cursor, I just ...

Not sure for the same application, but in Unity you can switch applications with super+number, as for example, super + 1 = first item on the launcher, super + 2 = the second item of the launcher, super + n = the nth item of the launcher. This also helps to open any item placed on the launcher, like if nautilus is the first item of the launcher, super + 1 ...

Same happened to me and this helped: Notify-osd notifications appear unthemed in top-left corner i3 installs dunst, which takes over ubuntu's notification system and shows notifications with i3 styling. Stopping and uninstalling dunst fixed the problem for me.

It turns out that the indicator-sound package was missing. This probably occurred as a result of purging pulseaudio to fix its issues. Reinstalling it immediately made it available.

You can use a program called ARandR. It is basically the perfect program for your needs. Description: ARandR is a visual front end for XRandR 1.2/1.3 (per display options), which provides full control over positioning, saving and loading to/from shell scripts and easy integration with other applications. If not already done, you can install ARandR via ...

I had a similar problem and found a bug report with a workaround that seems to do the trick. The workaround is as follows. I modified it a little so that you don't need to actually right click the active indicator panel, which could be tricky if it keeps crashing. Right click the panel and select Panel -> Panel Preferences Select the Items tab and add ...

I used to see problems similar to this on old Gnome 2 while playing with compiz, the window manager would need to be restarted sometimes, logging out & back in works, or restarting the window manager might work too. Xubuntu / XFCE uses the xfwm4 window manager, and it's got an option --replace that might work. Try: xfwm4 --replace & in a terminal ...

The XFCE launcher is pretty good, but basic. If you can, you should be using Synapse. IIRC, the XFCE default appsearch only looks at menuitems. Unity / Zeitgeist / whatever else use a bigger index of programs that searches all programs registered with it. [Still testing XFCE searching] So, there are two methods to do this: Install + Configure Synapse ...

I had the same issue on my Xubuntu 14.04 (Italian GUI). Obviously the other solutions in this page work, but they're a workaround. Surprisingly I was able to solve it by logging out after having checked the checkbox ("Save the session for next accesses"), disabled automatic logon (i.e. the feature that allows to log on without typing the password) and the ...

The least destructive and most straightforward approach I've used is to just make it and all of its related binaries unable to run. sudo chmod 000 /usr/bin/gnome-keyring* I haven't found a better approach yet.
