power management - How do I disable my system from going to sleep? - Ask Ubuntu |
Why the fuck doesn't the System Settings "Sleep after inactive for" setting do this this?
On Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, I successfully used the following to disable suspend:
<code class="language-bash">
sudo systemctl mask
And this to re-enable it:
<code class="language-bash">
sudo systemctl unmask

mdh34/elementary-indicators: An unofficial guide to restore indicator functionality on elementary OS |
All that seems to be required for most (exception of gtk2) indicators is

- install 'indicator-application' from the repos
- then the old wingpanel-ayatana-indicator package (
- and follow the instructions from to customize its XDG .desktop file so it runs in Pantheon

That is:
Edit /etc/xdg/autostart/indicator-application.desktop:
<code class="language-bash">sudo vim /etc/xdg/autostart/indicator-application.desktop</code>
<code class="language-ini">OnlyShowIn=Unity;GNOME;</code>
<code class="language-ini">OnlyShowIn=Unity;GNOME;Pantheon;</code>
and 'killall wingpanel'.

Also of note:
If you copy the file to .config/autostart/indicator-application.desktop then you shouldn't have to worry about it getting overwritten again.

Ayatana indicator has dissapeared (again) from Juno : elementaryos |
Ok, I found the solution: it was enough to re-edit /etc/xdg/autostart/indicator-application.desktop:
<code class="language-bash">sudo nano /etc/xdg/autostart/indicator-application.desktop</code>

change again:




and reboot.

If you copy the file to .config/autostart/indicator-application.desktop then you shouldn't have to worry about it getting overwritten again.

Big gap between icons · Issue #1 · mdh34/elementary-indicators |
Still works in 5.0 Juno. And you can put that CSS snippet in ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css to make the change permanent, even if updates to the upstream package clobbers your local modifications.
Try setting the padding to '0 2px' in your theme -> apps.css

In my case I use :
<code class="language-css">.composited-indicator {
padding: 0 2px;

Then set your theme to something else and then back again to make sure the changes are refreshed(or restart/log out)

How to display system tray icons in elementary OS Juno? - elementary OS Stack Exchange |

c - GLib-GIO-ERROR**: No GSettings schemas are installed on the system - Stack Overflow |
I ran into this problem when trying to using GNU Stow with two different GLib (elementaryOS) applications, which both provided their own 'gschemas.compiled'. My solution was to remove the existing one and run 'glib-compile-schemas /usr/local/share/glib-2.0/schemas'.
The problem is with the Glib schemas that apparently are not compiled on your system.

You need the glib-compile-schemas and find the glib-2.0/schemas directory which is located in /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas, I don't know if it will be found in the same path within MinGW, but I don't see why it wouldn't, so you must execute the following command1

<code class="language-bash">
glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/

and that will create a file gschemas.compiled so you need write permission, then the error will go away.

Hourglass in Launchpad
No, the app does not need to be running for the alarms to work. And 'at' doesn't seem to have been installed as a dependency, so Hourglass has its own persistent daemon apparently, or else the notification system allows you to create timed notifications.

networking - How do I use /etc/network/interfaces instead of network-manager - Ask Ubuntu
This seems to also be the case with elementaryOS if you add a bridged adapter that uses the default (eth0 or eno1 or whatever) adapter.

down vote

If you manually manage your network card in /etc/network/interfaces , network manger will not manage it , it will state "Not Managed"

september 2017 by kme - How to disable HP Device Manager Autostart
PITA huh, the presumption that everyone needs or wants that service running? Kind of like Windows....

* Create $HOME/.config/autostart/hplip-systray.desktop

* In that text file add this:

[Desktop Entry]

In addition to that, because I don't want the service running at all, I delete /etc/xdg/autostart/hplip-systray.desktop. I delete the file because the file gets updated every time hplip gets updated.

pm-utils - ArchWiki
This worked on the VAIO VGC-JS110J
"Sleep" and "power" buttons are handled by acpid in /etc/acpi/ (see "button/power" and "power/sleep" entries). You may want to substitute the default actions with calls to pm-suspend and pm-hibernate.

Please note that systemd handles power events on its own and does not use pm-utils or any scripts from /etc/pm/*.
