A solution is to use a different tool and remove completely that widget. sudo apt install kmix By default the actions on the tray icon don't affect the bluetooth speaker, until that speaker is selected as master channel (righ-click the icon, "Select Master Channel"). It shows no volume change pop-up on mouse actions on the tray icon (at least not in this ...

I just tried it on 19.10 and it works for me with gedit 3.34.0 and https://github.com/nymanjens/gedit-intelligent-text-completion/releases/download/v2.4/intelligent-text-completion-gedit3-8-v2.5.tar.gz. The key point maybe is that you first need to install gedit-plugins from the 19.10 repositories with sudo apt install gedit-plugins. After doing so, ...

for system-wide: Please note the valuable comments from Experts You should not edit files directly inside /etc/xdg/autostart directory by hand. It is a bad idea, bad method and bad recommendation. It will be overwritten on next package update. Instead - copy this file to ~/.config/autostart and then edit it for your needs. Or use GNOME GUI tool ...

After creating a hotspot for the first time, a file called Hotspot is created in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections, which holds configuration settings. So make sure to create a hotspot first, or else this file will not be present. Edit the configuration file with a text editor, for example, nano using the command: sudo nano /etc/NetworkManager/system-...

One possible reason is mentioned in Analyzing GNOME keyboard shortcuts which is one in a series "to analyze keyboard shortcuts in most major DEs". Quoting from there: Meta+arrow does not match a full set of tiling like Plasma (in which Meta+Up/Down tiles up and down), that is, it does not match semantically, because GNOME acknowledges that tiling up and ...

Linux works different than Windows, and as such, a unified place to enable/disable devices is not available. This is also due to different mechanisms that drivers my use. Some drivers come directly with the kernel and can (or cannot) be disabled by blacklisting modules. Other drivers are working on Xorg and can be enabled/disabled by configuration files or ...

I had the same problem after updating from Ubuntu 19.04 to 19.10. It seems that before the update process, we both probably had the package "backport-iwlwifi-dkms" installed, either manually or automatically. That package compiled a driver for the specific version kernel you were on. Although it may have mostly worked after the update, the Additional Drivers ...

This problem occurs because of a conflict between ntp.service and systemd-timesyncd.service. It's a known bug. Why does this happen? It occurs on systems that have been upgraded to 19.10. ntp.service is carried over during an upgrade, and 19.10's systemd-timesyncd.server won't start in its presence. more /lib/systemd/system/systemd-timesyncd.service.d/...

First install vanilla gnome. (This step may be optional, but I cannot verify because this is just the path I took.) sudo apt install vanilla-gnome-desktop Now restart your system with the new vanilla gnome. Then remove the extension. This will remove some meta packages, but don't worry. It will not break anything. sudo apt remove gnome-shell-extension-...

After doing some tests, I finally got the following: See this. Bootlogd is no longer supported. Plymouth service takes over. The file /etc/default/bootlogd is irrelevant. For plymouth.service to log messages to /var/log/boot.log file, the file /etc/default/grub should contain the following line: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash". Otherwise plymouth ...

Launch the Settings application and go to Devices > Keyboard. Under the 'Navigation' section, set Alt+Tab as the shortcut for 'Switch applications'. For 'Switch windows', use something else, for example Super+Tab.

I have an interesting observation. With me it also does not work out of the box, but when reversing the button settings for my mouse to lefthanded in the control panel I can operate the the XAIR sliders and buttons. Then it gets a bit awkward for the other applications, but I can control the mixer. So it seems that the mouse buttons somehow get mixed up .

I am currently having the same issue on Manjaro. But I have switched to another VT. I started the program with the following command(I was on TTY5): xinit ./X-AIR-EDIT -- :1 vt5 It started, and I was able to move faders, click mutes, etc. I am not sure what does this prove though. Is this something XFCE related?

The alarm-clock-applet package was dropped from Ubuntu after 19.04 Looking at the Debian package tracker page and the Ubuntu changelogs page, looks like this package was abandoned upstream several years ago. Abandoned packages are not receiving maintenance, bugfixes, and security patches. They are routinely removed from Debian and Ubuntu. Removed packages ...
