Debian 11 power manager
I am running Debian 11 with XFCE. It appears, that despite the power manager being set to blank the display after 20 minutes, this for me happens on my system after 1 minute ( I timed it).
This is not critical for me, just seems like unexpected behaviour. I am making this post to see if anyone else is having the same or similar issues.
I am using Debian 11 and the XFCE Desktop environment.

Creating an archive
In order to submit levels for rocks and diamonds, I needed to archive all the levels together. Under Debian 10 xarchiver, is one tool that can be used for this.
It should be a case of
- Goto folder with files in
- Select all files you would like to add
- right click on one of the selected files and select create archive
I have added a short video below, other than the slight hiccup with selecting the files, this will produce a tar.gz archive file.
Adding emblems to files
I have a large number of photos that I am slowly uploading to my Mastodon account. However this presents a problem, how to identify and keep track which photos have been uploaded.
I found a solution to this, the XFCE desktop in Debian allows small icons (called emblems) to be added to file icons, this helps to identify different files, but there seems to be quite a few more uses for this.
So in this context, you can add an emblem as follows
- Right click on a file or file(s)
- Go to properties
- Select *emblems tab
- Select the required emblem
- Click Close
Image icons will now display the selected emblem.
Hopefully this is helpful. Even in a different context.
