[SOLVED] Compiz Fusion in Arch Linux with Xfce... :(
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 2, 2009
pacman -S compiz-fusion-gtk

I use Xfwm4 at the moment, and this leaves me without any cool effects. Got eny ideas abotu how to install Compiz Fusion in Xfce and make it work properly?
How do I adjust the screen brightness in Xfce?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 31, 2011
I recently installed Xubuntu on an old Sony Vaio laptop. I normally would use the function keys to adjust the screen brightness, but they do not work. I checked the settings menu, but the only option I found was to adjust the brightness of the desktop background. How can I adjust the brightness of the entire screen?
xfce and gnomescreensaver ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 1, 2013
I installed mint 14 xfce x64. I know it uses gnome-screensaver but there is nothing in settings or any of the menus to configure this. I see no answer anywhere as to how to configure the gnome-screensaver under xfce mint14. Everyone just says it's in settings or whatever but its not they must be using mate and assume it's on xfce but it's not. I know the gnome-screensaver daemon is running but where is the config tool to select a screensaver or time till it starts ect ... how do I get this functionality without resorting to xscreensaver.
[SOLVED] MLED for 14.0 shows up with vanilla XFCE?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 27, 2013
Greetings, all, and kikinovak, salutations!
my installation of the MLED seemed to go smoothly, and everything works well except one item: The XFCE desktop is not customized at all. It is the standard vanilla XFCE.
The MLED packages are all there, but there is no GUI customization.
Am I mistaken to have assumed MLED makes customizations to XFCE? Looking around on
there is actually no specific mention of XFCE being customized on the surface. So, is the end-user meant to make the customizations, such as the cairo dock and etc. as seen in the above webpage?
At any rate, thank you kiki for a really cool customization (of the guts, at least
XFCE: how to change the keyboard layout?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 11, 2005
I am using Slackware 10.1 and XFCE and I love it. The only thing to bother is that I don't know how to change the keyboard layout (i am using a german keyboard). The strange thing is, that when I exit XFCE, I am able to use the german keyboard in the konsole. So it is just XFCE where I can not use the german keyboard. I have been asked about the keyboard layout during the installation, and i have chosen the german keyboard. So please, help me, how can I use a german keyboard layout with XFCE? I have tried to go to Settings --> Keyboard, but there is just the options Default and Emacs. What file do I have to edit in order to gain support for my german keyboard in XFCE?
Thanks for any help!
[SOLVED] Xfce edition for Linux Mint Nadia?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 20, 2012
I note that Linux Mint 14 has been released for both the MATE and Cinnamon desktops... but I don't see Xfce in the list of Mint editions.
Was Xfce as a default desktop environment in Linux Mint discontinued, or has it just not been released yet?
Boot issues with Linux Mint 14 Nadia xfce on solo instal . M2V mobo, 3Gb ram.

I'm getting an error when booting saying that the root device can't be found, and get pushed to a shell, causing the system to drop to a busybox initramfs shell on boot with a "Gave up waiting for root device." error. Wait a minute then I exit the initramfs shell by typing 'exit'. Booting then proceeds normally after os selection option..

New Mint User Cinammon, MATE or xfce?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 22, 2012
I'm new to this forum, hope I've posted this in the right place! I'm basically here as I'm thinking of changing to Linux Mint after being a longtime user of Ubuntu (Jaunty and for the past 2 years Lucid).
At first I had considered upgrading to a newer Ubuntu distribution, but after trying Ubuntu 12.04LTS from a Live CD, I decided not too as I don't really like it especially the new Unity interface, it seems to go against everything I liked about Ubuntu: its simplicity, similarity to Windows desktop environment, speed and style.
So after looking around, I was close to choosing Kubuntu but heard of the (not-so) new kid on the block: Linux Mint. I liked the sound of it for a number of reasons.
1. It shares many features of the classic Ubuntu environment.
2. I like the idea that it works "out-of-the-box", which makes the transition easier for me as it comes pre-installed with multimedia codecs, flash etc. As much as I like interacting with other linux user
[SOLVED] how to change login screen background in XFCE LMDE
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 26, 2012
Had to play around a bit before finding out how to do it, so here's easy instructions in case somebody needs it (worked on Linux Mint Debian Edition as of april 2012):
The login screen is handled by the gdm3 application. There's a gdm3setup app that can change configuration, background etc but I never got it to work.
If you want to manually change background on the login screen, edit this file:
sudo gedit /usr/share/linuxmint/adjustments/gdm3/greeter.gconf-defaults
And change the line:
to the path of your picture (can't remember what was the original one, this is the one I'm using). It needs to be a 1920x1200 size PNG file, or you'll end up with just a blue background.
You can also change theme etc of the login screen in this file.
you might need to change background picture path in the bottom line of this file as well, not sure:
Dropbox needing reinstalls in Centos 6.4 to keep working
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 31, 2013
I've installed dropbox and nautilus-dropbox. It works fine, however sometimes after a boot it will not run properly. Then I have to reinstall and it works fine again. During installation I get a non-fatal msg saying:
/usr/bin/chcon: can't apply partial context to unlabeled file `/etc/init.d/dropbox'
/usr/bin/chcon: can't apply partial context to unlabeled file `/etc/sysconfig/dropbox'
I've checked these files and seems to be nothing wrong with them. Has anyone experienced the same problems and/or know a solution?
