What you should always keep in mind is the fact that if a developer does not add a visual setting to his application (or to the system settings), he has a reason for that. elementary OS tries to provide a good out-of-box experience with sane defaults. More settings visualized in your application means there is more stuff that can act unexpected or break the ...

The configuration was changed from org.pantheon.cerbere to org.pantheon.desktop.cerbere: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~elementary-pantheon/cerbere/cerbere/revision/49 So I just modified the monitored-processes from there and I was able to disable Plank no problem.

You are correct that most system settings are stored in gsettings which is not plain-text. Typically a tool called dconf Editor is used to manually view and manipulate settings. You can also interact with gsettings using the Terminal command gsettings as you've already discovered. It's not really meaningful to think of where gsettings are stored in terms of ...

Multimedia keys are working fine for me in the latest testing version (1.0.9). In this article you can find how to install it: http://sysads.co.uk/2015/06/spotify-client-1-0-7-beta-for-linux-released/ # Use testing Spotify reposity sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://repository.spotify.com testing non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/spotify.list' # Add ...

Files stores a number of settings in the ~./config/user file (run dconf-editor and navigate to org/pantheon/files to see them). Some of these settings are updated in real time as you change e.g. the zoom level or show/hide hidden files. However, I have discovered using inotifywatch that this file is continually changing, as you report, while Files is open ...

You should be able to do the right-click menu, mouse to "Open in", and select Terminal.

you can modify that panel in apps.css sudo io.elementary.code /usr/share/themes/elementary/gtk-3.0/apps.css search /********* * Panel * ********/and modify what you want to change Colors, transparency. # 000 is color and 0.0 is transparency. I recommend you to be very careful since you can break something, also so that you know about how to ...

This would need changing Files code so cannot be done by the user. There is an existing bug report about icons in context menu - #1542709 - so this feature may be implemented in future.

You can control this behavior using gsettings. You have edited the correct setting using: sudo gsettings set io.elementary.files.preferences single-click false Just a small thing: when you run any command with sudo, you are running it as administrator user, not the user you are logged in and, in your case, the setting is changed for the administrator ...

With regard to "Desktop Icons", elementaryos does not support putting shortcuts or other icons onto the desktop I am afraid.

There is an outstanding bug that means a right-click does not always focus the item you are clicking on (see https://github.com/elementary/files/issues/602). As a temporary workaround, make sure the item has a blue background (i.e. it is focused and selected) before right-clicking. You can do this by using the primary (left) button to select on the helper ...

You could download dconf tools (sudo apt install dconf-tools), search for the values you remember changing and pressing the restore to default button. This will change the values back to their default values, hopefully fixing your issues. The value you've changed is probably located somewhere in the Pantheon namespace.

It sounds like your touchpad has switched to using the synaptics driver instead of the libinput driver. You could try removing the xserver-xorg-input-synaptics package if it is installed. The libinput driver will already be installed, so it should be a case of removing this package and then rebooting for the libinput driver to be picked up.

dconf-editor is working as it should. Though it seems it is not posssible to change time format in wingpanel anymore using dconf-editor anymore. On my (freshly installed) system there is only an option to show week numbers. Also elementary-tweaks does not show an option to change the time format, see https://github.com/elementary-tweaks/elementary-tweaks....
