Adjust scroll speed This is based directly on an answer to a similar question on AskUbuntu by user stvn66. I have tested it under elementary OS 0.4 Loki. Unfortunately there is no simple setting to adjust scrolling speed right now, which seems to be a problem for many Linux based operating systems, not only elementary OS. Currently the best option is to ...

Go to Settings > Keyboard and change the default behavior for the ⌘-key to disabled. ⌘-key is the super-key or the 'windows'-key. See wikipedia for the origin of the symbol.

You can use "Clippy" docklet in the dock (Plank). Open Plank preferences by pressing Ctrl and right/secondary clicking on Plank (or just run plank --preferences in the Terminal) and go to Docklets tab. Drag and drop Clippy icon to the dock. Right-click on it will open simply clipboard manager.

I think you are running into a known issue, that many of us encountered already. Please run this command from the terminal. sudo mv /etc/xdg/autostart/at-spi-dbus-bus.desktop /etc/xdg/autostart/at-spi-dbus-bus.desktop.backup let me know if it helps

The devs should correct me, but I don't think this is possible. I think you will have to file a bug report on launchpad. The reason will probably be that it requires a lot of disk reading to find the disk usage of everey directory. For an extreme example opening /: It will have to recursively read the entire filesystem.

Low-level sqlite approach The file-color associations are stored in the ~/.config/marlin/marlin.db sqlite database. You can try to reverse-engineer the format, as far as I have seen, there is one table tags, as seen in the dump: CREATE TABLE tags (id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY, uri TEXT UNIQUE NOT NULL, color INTEGER DEFAULT ...

I've found that with an update of an elementaryos component, they updated a dependency version of the package libmutter-2-0, version 3.28.4-0ubuntu18.04.1+elementary4~ubuntu5.0.1, which is not from the ubuntu repo but from another elementaryos specific, ppa:elementary-os/os-patches. Due to this missing dependency, apt removed packages gala and pantheon-...

I just applied updates via appcenter and had the same issue. Switchboad won't open either. I'm not sure if it's a new bug in switchboard-plug-security-privacy or what, but I was able to remove that switchboard plug to get everything working, well everything minus that plug. sudo apt remove switchboard-plug-security-privacy

Thanks to the Set Wallpaper Contract there already is a convenient way to set a new wallpaper: set-wallpaper Example: set-wallpaper ~/Downloads/coolpicture.png set-wallpaper some-name.png will set as wallpaper the file ~/some-name.png. If there is no such file at that location, it will create a black desktop: for example a command like set-wallpaper x.

Thanks, finally I managed to solve the issue. I killed the second desktop running in a separate window and purged all the Nautilus packages. Now it works as it should be.

The minimum window size (910 x 640 in pixels) is now hard coded into Files as the result of a recent merge, so cannot be changed (except with a bug request, possibly). It was thought to be a reasonable minimum usable size and on my computer occupies less than one quarter of the screen (on Loki with elementary theme). If the window is appearing bigger with ...

This is probably a duplicate Delay to Start Elementary OS 0.4 Loki (64-bit) Try this: mv /etc/xdg/autostart/at-spi-dbus-bus.desktop /etc/xdg/autostart/at-spi-dbus-bus.disabled

This will reinstall the default icons and theme: sudo apt install --reinstall elementary-theme elementary-icon-theme elementary-default-settings elementary-desktop Also try this: System Settings -> About -> Restore Default Settings

This should be possible with a contractor, something like this: [Contractor Entry] Name=Shred Description=Securely delete a file Icon= MimeType=!inode/blockdevice;inode/chardevice;inode/fifo;inode/socket; Exec=shred -f -z -u %f Place this in /usr/share/contractor/shred.contract and you should then get an entry when you right-click on a file.

Install dconf: sudo apt install dconf-tools Open it from the menu and then goto /org/gnome/desktop/interface/text-scaling-factor , and set it to 1.44 or 1.5 on a 4k screen. Everything looks very nice on a 4k screen now

I have managed to fix this in elementaryOS 5 (Juno). You might be able to do this on lower versions as well: Pair the device with your computer using the default Bluetooth settings in the control panel (I assume that you have already done this). Install blueman: sudo apt-get install blueman Open blueman services: blueman-services A window should open, here ...

In addition to what Pieter shared in his answer, I had to take the following additional steps before I could receive files from a Windows 10 laptop: After installing blueman, restart the computer and open the applet (It might be possible to run the applet without restarting: blueman-applet). Click on the applet icon and select "Devices...". Select the ...

For anyone else that might experience this, here's the answer I learned: I ended up creating a file at ~/.config/zoomus.conf: [General] autoScale=false

After tons of troubleshooting, the following solved it: Log in as normal. Immediately after logging in as the affected user bring up TTY1 with Ctl-Fn-Alt-F1 Enter export DISPLAY=:0.0 Set gsetting as usual (gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface scaling-factor 2) I couldn't find a way out of TTY1, so I just did sudo service lightdm restart

Pantheon supports Window Shading (to my memory), but not Desktop Menus (what you are calling popup menus). Slingshot provides that purpose. You however mimic this functionality (almost) by using keyboard shortcut to open Slingshot (slingshot-launcher) at any location on the desktop.

From answer in other post: No, its not possible for all. Window decorations are now drawn by the application itself. There no longer is a separate title bar.

Check if you have broken soft links in /usr/bin: cd /usr/bin for x in * .[!.]* ..?*; do if [ -L "$x" ] && ! [ -e "$x" ]; then echo "$x"; fi; done This will list all broken soft links. If you have any, specially the which command, there's your answer. Just remove the broken link and relink again: cd /usr/bin sudo rm which sudo ln -s /bin/which ...

You must add a repository from elementary OS team in order to download the source package for pantheon-mail. Try: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/daily sudo apt-get update Open Software and Updates and look for new repository added. Mark line for sources an close. When it ask you to update source.list, accept it. Warning: Beware of upgrade ...

why not use ubuntu gnome directly than elementary? The problem is that you can't use the latest version of gnome and keep pantheon and other elementary apps, this is because the gtk version used in both desktops are diferents, pantheon uses gtk 3.14 and the latest version of gnome use gtk 3.20, so if you install one the other broke. Any way if you still ...

Unfortunately there is no setting in elementary OS to adjust this. There is a bug over there at Launchpad. A possible solution could be http://www.webupd8.org/2015/12/how-to-change-mouse-scroll-wheel-speed.html (I have not tried it).

Click on "Carpeta Personal", create your Work file in Home (or wherever you want). Then right-click that new file and left click on Bookmark (or for you it's probably "Marcador" or something like that). Then it should be available on the left-hand panel. I made a little slideshow for you: https://goo.gl/photos/Zvk4KbZ3iMnHkJH36
