The simple answer is, you can't. There isn't anything relevant to be changed in the Settings Manager or Settings Editor, assuming that you are using Xubuntu release that still uses Xfce 4.10 or earlier (Xubuntu 14.04 or older). The long answer is, you can get it with some efforts. There are two known ways to achieve this, based on the clues left in the ...

Since the bug you are reffering to is more than a year old and probably doesn't apply to 14.04 I would suggest to file a new bug report with ubuntu-bug from a terminal and provide as much detail as possible when the crash happens using these steps: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs#Reporting_an_application_crash_in_the_stable_release

I installed Xubuntu 14.04LTS on my HP 2000-2b09WM Notebook PC. Apparmor works on the installation, therefore, I know that the problem was the fact that I was running from a live-usb. clearkimura was right-on, thank you. RCline7

Linux Mint has a great post on this, might help you, just take a look. http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=172495

Yeah, seems a little harsh. Possibly an accidental click? At any rate, have you tried this: http://www.techytalk.info/ubuntu-fix-network-stopped-working-after-resume-from-sleep/ And if you are struggling to follow that solution, paste the results of "sudo lsmod" and we can go from there.

I had a similar problem on Xubuntu, try to run sudo apt-get autoremove sudo apt-get autoclean sudo dpkg --configure -a Then restart the PC. Also, you can check for additional drivers on the driver Utility. If the problem persist, look at dmesg And attach the output on a text file. Also, you can see this entry: WiFi Issues

Apparmor that runs normally will show a number of loaded profiles. However, this is applicable only when Xubuntu has been installed to the local machine. Could it be because I am using the live-usb? So the short answer is, yes. And it is not just Live USB, but also applies to Live CD/DVD regardless of the Xubuntu releases (I have confirmed myself ...

It depends on what you start from. If you do a clean install of Xubuntu, only XFCE applications will be installed. If you run sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop from already installed Ubuntu, you will keep all Unity applications. That may get system slower and you will have too many similar programs installed. But you will have an option to log in ...

Yes xfce is a pretty lightweight DE. If you want the whole Xubuntu package it might be best to back up your data and reinstall, otherwise install the xfce4 package via the software center or the command line with sudo apt-get install xfce4 and you should consider installing the xfce4-goodies package for a lot of helpful extras to really bring the best ...

Just run the following command in terminal: 'sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop' After the installation, reboot your PC and you should log in into XFCE. All your files and installed packages will be safe.

Basically, you're humped. This is a well-known bug; this is just one of scores of duplicate bug reports about it. It has been around for over a year, and there are still "me too" posts every day.

You can even “transform” Ubuntu into Xubuntu by simply installing sudo apt-get install xfce4 Once it's installed, you should be able to select xfce at login and get, basically, the Xubuntu experience. It's not quite the same as an out-of-the-box Xubuntu, but differences are mostly in artwork. If it doesn't work, just switch back to Unity at the next ...

The wireless solution will work for Xubuntu as well. All Ubuntu flavors share same kernels and drivers. And all hardware related solutions work with all flavors similarly. All terminal commands that are not specific to Xubuntu desktop environment are also same.

You got disconnected from the internet somehow while the system was trying to install ttf-mscorefonts-installer. You can just re-install the package and the problem will be solved. sudo apt-get install --reinstall ttf-mscorefonts-installer Note that you'll be presented with a user agreement screen to install this product from Microsoft.

From what I recall the only alternate now that carries the software raid 0 option is Lubuntu.

I have been going at it all wrong. The simplest way is to burn your Alternate install on the usb, run it, and when you have to partition the disk, just create one partitions for "/" and one partitions for swap. Repeat this for both disks, and you are done. Make sure to turn the Boot flag "on". The installer takes care of the rest

Ubuntu has a built in VNC server. search for screen sharing and configure. which is better, is a matter of which performs more practically for you. VNC will be compatible with many of the Android apps, if you want remote access outside of your home network don't forget to forward TCP port 5900 in your router to your computer

Devil's Pie (devilspie) supposedly the easiest way to get this done, but it doesn't work as expected under Xubuntu 12.04/14.04.

TL;DR: You probably want sudo apt-get remove light-locker light-locker-settings to remove the xfce lockscreen. Your issue is that xubuntu-desktop is a meta package. Removing it by itself doesn't really do much for you. When you installed xubuntu-desktop you had the option to allow/deny a bunch of other packages being installed. If you've forgotten what ...

There is no stable Ubuntu release with kernel 4.x yet. There are l2tp modules in current Ubuntu kernels for a long time. It looks like you misunderstood something regarding l2tp. You will need a user space application (xl2tpd or openl2tpd) to use l2tp protocol. These application use kernel modules. I am now writing this connected with l2tp to ISP.

Normally to start the Xfce session from the console, you should put: xfce4-session More here, but I'm not sure about using this with VNC. Remember that first you have to install Xfce, in first step from Your link (Installing a Desktop and VNC on your Linode) change: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop to: sudo apt-get install xfce4

First find the directory that has used most of your hard disk space by running # du -sh /*. Let assume it is /var dir.

xfce4-session will use systemd-sleep on a systemd system (not pm-suspend). systemd-sleep hooks should be put in /lib/systemd/system-sleep using the following template: #!/bin/sh case $1/$2 in pre/*) echo "Going to $2..." ;; post/*) echo "Waking up from $2..." ;; esac ...and made executable. One other caveat with systemd is that ...

/proc (manpage, kernel docs) is a virtual filesystem. Files in /proc aren't real files, but ways to access information and settings from the kernel.
