Auto starting applications

Using Deluge as an EXAMPLE

  1. Goto

Menu —> Settings —> Session and Startup

In the video I am looking to see if the application is listed, (which it wasn't) then I click add and then fill in the details.

2. Off screen I used the Menu Editor application

Menu —> Settings —> Menu Editor

to find the executable binary file I needed to copy and paste in to the command field

  1. This process is fairly simple and is outlined below. It is sometimes useful to be able to disable or enable start up to help with troubleshooting.

Xfce4 multiscreen support

As my netbook is running Debian 10 + XFCE 4 desktop then plugging in a vga cable which is attached to my TV gives me the option to use the TV as a display too.

multiscreen

So this gives various options, extending the display will then allow windows to be dragged over, so I can watch a full screen peertube video on the tv for example.

Clicking the advanced option gives you the ability to fine tune this setup

advanced

Note Upon plugging in the VGA cable, the screen resolution will change and the dialogue box mentioned above will be displayed, removing the cable should restore the display.

As with anything Your mileage may vary with this*, but it seems to work really well.

This article will be shared via rss and on Mastodon, if you need any help then I will do my best to help with this, but you may want to follow XFCE on Mastodon

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.

xarchiver

It should be a case of

  1. Goto folder with files in
  2. Select all files you would like to add
  3. 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 items to the XFCE Panel

This is a quick video, created with Vokoscreen to illustrate the process of adding an item to the XFCE4 Panel
