I switched to lxde, love the speed, but it has one major glitch: it doesn't save the settings. the most annoying: the setting " enable tapping" of the touchpad isn't saved afer a reboot. I tried the following:
delete ~/config/lxde ~config/lxpanel ~/config/pcmanfmand the other solution i found in the forum:Opensuse 11.3 LXDE Keeps Changing My Wallpaper Back To Default
I'm using opensuse 11.3, added repo lxde, updated everythng. So far, nothing.
In the indicator-applet-complete, I want the date and day to be displayed with the time. I open the Time & Date Settings, tick off the appropriate boxes, and nothing changes. The same is true for the Bluetooth icon. I can't remove the bluetooth icon from the indicator applet.It seems like a general problem with the indicator applet in that it doesn't save my settings.
I had some issues with nvidia drivers, and removed all of the packages using
Code: Select allrm /etc/X11/xorg.conf and Code: Select allapt-get purge nvidia*
Upon reboot, I was back with nouveau drivers and proceeded to reinstall nvidia drivers according to [URL] .....
Code: Select allapt-get install nvidia-driver apt-get install nvidia-xconfig I can then change my refresh rate using Code: Select allnvidia-settings but when I hit "Save to X configuration file", I get the following output in terminal: Code: Select allroot@debian:/home/anon# nvidia-settings Package xorg-server was not found in the pkg-config search path. Perhaps you should add the directory containing `xorg-server.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable No package 'xorg-server' found
As a result, my nvidia preferences aren't saved across reboot.

I installed Open Suse 11.3 LXDE from the live CD I downloaded. My monitor settings reset to the highest resolution on every shutdown/reboot. Other settings like my wallpaper and removing the lock screen on screensaver also reset.
Is this there anything I can do to get settings/changes I make to stay?
I installed lxde, but my wireless internet doesn't work. I can switch back to gnome and it works perfectly. I tried wicd and manually connecting with the command line. Both fail while trying to get an ip.
I've a laptop with 2 external monitors connected to it.Using SaX2 I can't configure it in a way where it only uses the two external monitors and not the laptops own screen.With nvidia-settings I can configure it properly, as I am however unable to save it due to a missing xorg.conf file how am I supposed to save the this config so it isn't 'forgotten' between reboots?
I have seen posts on the fact that dual screen configuration seem to be a nightmare with opensuse 11.3. As a few already mentioned, it worked all fine with 11.2 and now we are back to. I have two screens attached to my laptop: the standard LVDS and one HDMI high res monitor. It works fine to configure it once but it is NEVER SAVED so I have to do this at EVERY boot. Even more annoying: when the slid is closed, my laptop goes into "no display mode" (black screens) and when it tries to come back to life (opening the lid again) everything is screwed (to use a nice word).
I managed to damage my 11.2 installation so it starts in the GUI mode only in failsafe mode. Actually I tried before to repair the installation, using the install DVD, but the automatic repair procedure failed. More than that, since then boot loader also seams to be "repaired" so that the Windows installation doesn't appear in the boot menu, but this is another thing.For me, now, the fastest way to get a stable system is to make a new installation. The biggest problem is that I cannot save/backup the emails and accounts settings in an elegant way. I'm using Thunderbird. Of course I would also like to save other apps settings.So is there a way to save user application settings so that I can used them after a new install? I had a look to the yast backup tool but these seams to be a way to archive files, or am I wrong?
Config a CentOS iptables.I issued some iptables rules.the rules were effective at once.Then, I came with a "iptables-save", but the "/etc/sysconfig/iptables" file hasn't been updated, it still loads the defaults rules with CentOS after reboot.
When I go into YAST/sound my sound card is shown, and everything works pretty well, however, when I set the volume (other/volume), then exit and come back in, the volume levels are different than when I exited. When I reboot, it sets the master volume to 0%.
my mediacenter is attached to an beamer with the optimal resolution of 1280*720 ubuntu 10.04 doesnt offer me this revolution (on my intel 915 graphis controller). this means i have to add this resolution to the possible resolutions. first i used cvt
i have LXDE 0.5.0.4 installed on top of GNOME under deb squeez, i notice slightly different shape and font hinting/rendering quality in both of them.i'm not sure if what im doing is right or wrong but since i cannot find the way to configure font settings in LXDE i try reconfiguring with sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig-config still font rendering quality and shape under LXDE is different with one in GNOME, take a look at two screenshots below, both are using same font and size:
I have installed the LXDE desktop on my Debian Testing setup (It also has XFCE desktop installed). On the LXDE desktop I am trying to increase the virtual desktops from 2 to 4 desktops but every time I right click on the desktop pager icon on the task bar and then click on Desktop Pager Setting (from the menu that appears), nothing happens I don't get any configuration window for the desktop pager. AM I missing something from my install of LXDE??
when attempting to open screensaver settings in LXDE, the window pops up briefly for a second and then closes. Anyway I can fix this? I would post a debug log if I knew how to open this app from within terminal
Powersaving on my desktop is way to agressive, it behaves like a notebook. The monitor switches off after just 4 minutes.Disabling PowerDevill makes no difference. Editing energy profile settings doesn't help either.Is there another way to force these settings?
I was reading a FAQ on Fedora and it states that there is a way that I can Log Out and most importantly for me "Save Settings". Well I selected my user name in the upper right hand corner and selected Quit and then Log Out but I was never asked to "Save Settings". Where can I find this "Save Settings" thing when I log out?
1. a builtin (broken) 2. an HDMI on my graphics board 3. a USB audio device (i am using this one)
I normally shut off the system each night. Next day, I have to go through the pulse-audio mixer and re-set all of the audio settings. They are apparently not being saved. I've searched the forum for 'save audio' and similar terms but no joy.
I found that setting the video output module to opengl works very well. The only problem now is that vlc keeps changing my setting back to "default" rather that "opengl" or "x11".How do I force it to save my settings?
how I can save xinput settings? I'm running Peppermint Linux on an eeepc 701.After a few weeks, I've finally figured out which settings to configure with the xinput command to get my touchscreen working correctly. However, when restart the netbook all the settings are lost and I have to reconfigure each time. I've found threads saying to save settings in xorg.conf file, but apparently my system doesn't have this file.
I am using ubuntu 10.04.I have installed animated desktop using xwinwrap..Each time loging my animated desktop not available and have to setup again.Sky doom picture setup by ccsm also not available and have to setup.Every time i loging to my gnome desktop i have to configure them.Is there any way to save this settings before logout.
I recently installed Fedora 13 64 bit with KDE and everything works perfectly with the exception of display properties. I have two monitors which I have setup as multiple displays here is the result of xrandr when all is good.

I'm have an ATI Radeon 3450 HD graphics card and I believe I installed the mesa driver as the proprietary one simply won't install.
I am experiencing a similar problem as this thread but I do not use the fusion-icon.[URL].. Compiz will not save custom settings when compiz-settings-manager is used. It will save setting thru "Simple-settings-manager". In addition, some settings will not take effect immediately. Example: The "viewport switcher" in "Desktop-wall". Color changes will not take effect unless I change the "preview scale".Quote:
