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 ...

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 ...

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.

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.

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

Here is the repository of elementary. github repository

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


2

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

This functionality has been finally added with elementary OS 5.0 Juno.

You cannot customize this behavior with dconf-editor, you cannot change it unless you are familiar with programming (look at src/TerminalWidget.vala). You might want to file a bug at https://bugs.launchpad.net/pantheon-files

Pantheon-files saves by default the places that were opened (tabs and directories). You can however change these settings with dconf-editor under the schema org.pantheon.files.preferences: restore-tabs if you set this to false it does not remember the last places opened tab-info-list contains the saved list of tabs and directories So you can either turn ...


2

At the moment, the default directory (the one that is loaded when you restore tabs is off or if you close the last tab) is hard-coded to be the user home directory. So if you want to return to the Downloads directory on re-opening then you have to make sure that that folder is open when you close Files. You could try requesting a feature to be able set the ...

Install xdotool: sudo apt install xdotool In 'Hot Corners' under 'Custom command' insert the following command: xdotool keydown Alt F4 keyup Alt F4

I also have the same issue. The mouse becomes completely unresponsive. However i could navigate with keyboard. I found a quick solution. Pressing win + space to open the launcher fixes it for me. At least for some time.
