Is it possible to replace metacity with xfce window manager (don't know it's name)? I don't want to run xfce session, I need only xfce window manager running on gnome fallback.
Windows are homing to the upper left corner of the screen and, for the most part, are immovable. Window commands in the task bar work however. This is occurring in both XFCE and GNOME. XFCE's 'Window Manager' and 'Window Manager Tweaks" commands in the Settings menu don't do anything, neither does attempting to make changes to the borders in XFCE's Theme Manager. Any thoughts on this one?
My window manager seems to have broke (xfce). I don't see windows around borders, the mouse doesn't display, and i cannot open the "window manager" settings from the menu (the xorg text tty says my window manager is unknown). The panel still loads but doesn't display my desktops correctly (only shows 1, i have 2). How can i find out why this might have happened?
Is Xfce's default window manager (Xfwm4) getting you down? Not enough effects for your fancy? Or perhaps it's giving you that infamous screen tearing with the lack of OpenGL VSync? There's plenty of alternatives out there, but had you considered KDE's compositing window manager, KWin? It can be done!
I've been enjoing globalmenu with xfce in ubuntu 12.04 for years. Xfce doesn't have properly globalmenu but what I do is that:
1- Install gnome fallback - classic and setup the globalmenu applet.
2- In xfce I replace the own xfcePanel itself for gnomePanel.
In file manager in xfce, I'd like to disable tooltips if there's a way. Also,
in file manager preferences > behavior > middle click,
open in new tab or new window is broken,
it doesn't matter which I select, the behavior is the same,
folders and files not opening in a new window or new tab,
only the current window. Please help.
I've a problem with running an xfce session on a desktop computer. All window decorations are gone, in the settings manager I can't change the settings of the window manager (clicking on window manager gives me an empty screen, with just the return, help and close buttons). In firefox the menu's are unusable.
