Re: Trouble with VLC

the usual first troubleshooting step is:
open a terminal, enter 'vlc', and post the output here. preferably between code tags. thanks.
PS: don't be root when doing this.

Re: Possible to Disable Desktop Auto Sorting of Newly-Created (Folder/File) Icons?

Every time I create a new Folder or File on the Desktop (by right-clicking the Desktop and selecting 'Create New' from the popup menu), the newly-created requisite (Folder or File) icon is immediately aligned/moved on the Desktop, rather than it being placed precisely in the area where my mouse poi...

Re: CWD after opening file is home directory. how to change it?

If I double-click an executable program I will get a choice to run it. If I do so, then the program will be launched and its CWD will be the directory where I clicked it. And this is expected behavior. But if I double-click a different file which is not an executable program then it will open the f...

Re: Problem with .desktop files with version 1.3.0

i'm pretty sure pcmanfm has an option in its preferences to always execute executables, or ask. The problem is that the dialog box appears for entries in the lxpanel "application launch bar" and this is not wanted - it should behave like the menu..... that seems unlikely; did you create th...

Re: gpart

what seppalta said. on a broader note, it sounds like you brought your consumer mentality over from $PROPRIETARY_OS, and are now deeply dissatisfied with the way GNU/Linux works. however, it doesn't work that way. surely you can see that millions of users, ever growing in numbers, can't be that wron...

Re: Not allowed to modify the system configuration?

User Settings - Change User Password Check: Don't ask for User Password OK and Error :o i don't really understand this, esp. the last bit. where and how did you try to set "Don't ask for User Password"? and what error are you getting? surely not this: :o literally? on a wild guess, i'd sa...

Re: Lost Display Preferences - clicked the wrong option somewhere

i just uninstalled pcmanfm, but this is how I remember it:
either through ALT-F2 or a terminal, enter this command:

Code: Select all

pcmanfm --desktop-pref

hope you can find the appropriate checkbox from that.

PS: it should also be possible to access that from the LXDE menu somewhere...

Re: Unlock keyring prompts after LXQt login [SOLVED]

I/m guessing there was an issue with the files in the original keyrings folder. no. i'll say it again: this is a feature , not something problematic. it makes sense to secure sensitive stuff with passwords. it makes sense to actually enter these passwords - either on-demand, or once during login. n...
