Suckless tools sucked for me, but now they're gone.

Thank you.

Yes. I reposted it without the license note. It's now edited.

This is the latest command output:

No. Both of these ways lead to the screen lock I have already described. The non-standard one.

Could I just create a keyboard shortcut that runs the same command we used to call the screen lock in the terminal? That would do.

That's right.

EDIT: Could I create an extra keyoboard shortcut that runs this screen lock?

No. It pulls off the normal screen lock with no snags.

Right?

However, I recall that on the day after which this paranormal occurrence became a reality for me, I installed a couple of browsers, namely Dillo and UZBL and then uninstalled those again, and I also briefly installed ICQ (I know, nostalgia), only to uninstall it again.

I wonder if some these (un)installs could have somehow altered the file(s) responsible for the lockscreen?

New Users / Lockscreen Suddenly Changing (SOLVED)

Hi there!

So what happened is, without a warning, the lockscreen changed. Instead of the usual blurred screen with timer, it's black. When I start typing the password, it turns to blue. If I hold the backspace until the password is erased, the screen turns red.

It's funny alright, but I wonder how we got there and how to change it back  :o

I've noticed it still jumps on me a little from time to time, but it's not nearly as frequent or painful as it used to be.

give us a shout if you have any questions.

Sorry about starting another thread on this. This solution works perfectly fine for me.

I set it to 0.3 second. There is no lag and I can use the touchpad right after hitting the last stroke -- without the cursor driving me insane  >:(

Thank you.   :)

It's all to do with vibration, I had the same problem what Laptop are you using? I had same on my Lenovo yoga 500, but that comes with the option to switch off Touchpad and use a proper mouse. I also managed to switch off Touchpad in my Elitebook with a little app called Touchpad Indicator link below on how to install it and use it. I set mine up to be off all the time on start up.

I hope this helps?

This should work in Peppermint 8 too so ignore the 18.04 part

Thank you.

I know it won't be an issue once I disable it. The thing is, I wanna use it  :D

The title says it all.

Whenever I enable touchpad, writing becomes a chore, as all of a sudden, the cursor will jump a couple of lines up (or something). It may not sound so bad, but it's really, really annoying and it breaks the flow of your work frequently.


I have searched the internet for solution, but I haven't found anything useful.

Open to try anything  :'(

Thank you.

Hey there brainy people,

I understand how to create a shortcut, but I don't know what command should I put in for it to open a directory when pressed.

Can you help?

Thank you
