GParted doesn't run

  • As root, edit /usr/share/applications/gparted.desktop, and change:
Exec=gksudo /usr/sbin/gparted %f


Exec=gksu /usr/sbin/gparted %f

I messed up the user creation

  • So you can log in as root. Open a terminal and type:

Can't see any .pnd

  • Click on the green icon near the Xfce menu.

Still can't see any .pnd

  • You forgot to add your user in the right groups. Edit /etc/group and add yourself to:
audio cdrom floppy plugdev video power netdev lp scanner

I don't want USB enabled at boot

  • Edit /etc/rc.d/rc.local , and comment:

modprobe ehci-hcd into

  1. modprobe ehci-hcd

Can't set the battery monitor to display time left

  • Left-click anywhere on the center of the Xfce menu bar.
Panel-->Panel Preferences-->Items-->Battery Monitor

Emulators and Games icons are the same

  • It's because freedesktop menus are crap. I lost days trying to set them up.
