== Lock screen on suspend ==
[[Xfce#Lock the screen]] gives an introduction to screen locking, but I can't get it to work with xfce4-power-manager on resuming from suspend. I've found little on this [https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=180985] [https://www.reddit.com/r/archlinux/comments/2eyt80/xfce_slock_not_locking_screen_when_suspending/] and an old bug for Xfce 4.8. [https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=738124]. Locking via {{ic|Ctrl+Alt+L}} works as expected (slock). Can others reproduce, and if yes, should I investigate further and file a bug upstream? Perhaps this could be related to the light-locker transition (where I use [[xinitrc]]). -- [[User:Alad|Alad]] ([[User talk:Alad|talk]]) 10:52, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
: This functionality works fine for me but I use {{Pkg|gnome-screensaver}}. This might be an issue for specific screen lockers as opposed to a general Xfce issue. I notice that there is an alternative "lock screen before sleep" option under ''Applications'' -> ''Settings'' -> ''Session and Startup'' -> ''Advanced''. Perhaps that works where the xfpm option does not? -- [[User:Chazza|Chazza]] ([[User talk:Chazza|talk]]) 11:05, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
::Indeed, it works with gnome-screensaver. It even uses gnome-screensaver when I symlink slock in /usr/local/bin to xflock4 (though the shortcut and menu do respect xflock4). Looking through the source, xfpm is supposed to use xflock4 though [http://git.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-power-manager/tree/common/xfpm-common.c#n58], so not sure what's happening here. -- [[User:Alad|Alad]] ([[User talk:Alad|talk]]) 06:04, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
:::It's worth taking a look at what xflock4 is actually doing here - it's just a shell script. As can be seen from the first for loop, it will try to execute {{ic|xscreensaver-command -lock}} and {{ic|gnome-screensaver-command --lock}} in that order and it will exit. Only if neither of those can be executed will it move on to deal with xclock and slock. So xfpm's behaviour is correct here.
:::Edit: Whoops, misread. Yes I see the problem here, the symlink isn't being respected. Not sure why that would be the case.
:::Edit2: The lock screen panel action button first tries to find the program in path before executing.[http://git.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-panel/tree/plugins/actions/actions.c#n868] The power manager doesn't. That's probably the source of the inconsistency. -- [[User:Chazza|Chazza]] ([[User talk:Chazza|talk]]) 08:01, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
::::No activity since mid July - was a decision reached on this? -- [[User:Chazza|Chazza]] ([[User talk:Chazza|talk]]) 16:34, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
:::::I couldn't get this working outside gnome-screensaver/x-screensaver, even when putting a symbolic link directly in /usr/bin, but I'm afraid I didn't get the chance to contact upstream yet. -- [[User:Alad|Alad]] ([[User talk:Alad|talk]]) 11:16, 19 September 2015 (UTC)
== XFCE and GTK3 Theme ==
My edit [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Xfce&diff=prev&oldid=467430] for the section [[Xfce#Theming]] was removed without clearly explaining why, with the comment "not sure where this was copied from, but copying a theme-specific .css file to .config has no impact, in particular not to use the 'same theme colors as the rest (?) of XFCE'. cf [https://blogs.gnome.org/mclasen/2014/05/06/tweaking-a-the-gtk-theme-using-css/]". This link does not address the same issue at all. To answer "where this was copied from", the commands comes from here: [https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=119251].
This fix enabled me to have a dark Adwita theme with dark colors in GTK3 apps, such as Firefox or the XFCE Terminal Emulator, in different Arch installations. Even though I didn't delve in the details to know how this fix work, the thing is that it works, and is needed. Maybe a better fix exists, but it's not documented on the wiki. This picture illustrates the fix: [http://hpics.li/0591d91].
Could you, [[User:Alad|Alad]], explain to me why you think it has "no impact", as it solved my issue ? -- [[User:Jeatra|Jeatra]] ([[User talk:Jeatra|talk]]) 13:07, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
