This is a known bug: https://github.com/elementary/switchboard-plug-power/issues/89 There's a workaround near the (current) bottom of the page: This problem is because the power settings are used from the gconf configuration of the user lightdm, and not the current user. Just test: sudo su su - -s /bin/bash lightdm gsettings get org.gnome.settings-...

As an interim solution you can install dconf-editor and change the key org/gnome/system/location to enabled. After that, the Night light settings will work as expected. You can also change the setting in the terminal without installing anything by executing gsettings set org.gnome.system.location enabled true Please execute sudo apt-get install dconf-...

On ElementaryOS you need to run VMWare Workstation as root. I hear it has something to do with gala, but I can't speak intelligently to that. The solution is edit the .desktop file to use pkexec like milos-stevanovic said, but with a few extra steps so that you don't need to use the terminal each time you want to open VMWare Workstation. First, create a ...

This is a known issue in Elementary OS due to their somewhat non-standard way of applying window decorations. Fortunately, there is a fix, but it must be applied on a per-application basis. In fact on the issue description itself on GitHub, there's a summary of how to fix it with Eclipse as a sample: For those wondering how to change the .desktop file ...

I had the same issue. I had set "Suspend when inactive" to "Never", but it would still suspend when idle. Because I don't care to EVER put this system into suspend mode (automatically or otherwise), I also did another couple of things: I set the power button action to "do nothing". And I did this command from the Debian wiki, to completely disable any ...

If you have a Synaptics touchpad (which I believe is on most laptops), you can use synclient to modify these settings. To install simply run sudo apt install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics. In this case synclient TapButton1=0 should do the trick. You can put this in your ~/.bashrc to make it permanent. Refer to the man page for more options.

I realized that the problem was with the ctrl key-press ...

I have solved this issue for me. The permissions in the home folder were very strange -- root:root and 777. I changed them to the my user and 755 for directories, 644 for files, and all works now. If you're running into this and you don't have messed up permissions in your home folder, I recommend you check the solutions in this thread for more information.

I had a similar issue where increasing the volume on my USB headset by one step (tick) would drastically increase the volume. Even worse, lowering the volume below a certain threshold (roughly 20-25%) would mute the sound alltogether. I worked around this by installing pavucontrol (sudo apt install pavucontrol) and lowering the volume bar for my music ...
