Hi, Using Lubuntu 10.10. When I close my Laptop (pull the screen/lid down to close it) it goes into a standby mode where I must press my now blinking on/off button to restart it. I want to have it so my laptop stays on. The screen by default will probably turn off (that seems hardwired into the hardware) but other than that I want control over this. Most flavors of Unbuntu easily have control over this by GUI menus but I don't see any way in Lubuntu. Is there a way?
With a Synaptics touchpad. Moving the finger along the right edge of the touchpad acts as a scroll wheel. If the cursor is not in any app window but is in open desktop area - then this scrolling action will transport one to a different desktop. I have two desktops enabled so by moving the the finger along the side up/down I go from Desktop1 to Desktop2 and back. This deadly for me and causing much hair pulling. I am in the middle of doing something and desktop will change. No matter how careful I am this eventually happens. So for the sake of sanity I have only one desktop. I'd like multiple desktops but I need to turn-off this scrolling feature. I've seen some hacks in config files but they either don't work or have side effects. I want to keep the scrolling in windows were the touchpad scrolling really helps. I just want to turn-off the scrolling between desktops only. I can't find a GUI in Lubuntu to do this. Is there a way that works that anyone knows? When I double click on a text file (txt extension) nothing happens. I do that with a .doc and Abiword opens the file. I think there's no program associated with the txt extension. I'd like Gedit to open the file and be default program. How do I do this? Related maybe - Say there's a text file on the web with a link to download it. If I click the link the default program to open is "Virus Scanner"(?). I choose and find the path to Gedit the "Always use this to open this kind of file" checkbox is checked and grayed out. Gedit opens the file but the preference does not stick.
