Multiple modifiers section
Here's a little tidbit I found that may be worth adding to the documentation (although I don't know where it would best fit in):
- The setting for easy_click in xfwm4.xml is the name of the modifier key. But what if you want to use multiple modifiers? I want Ctrl+Alt to be the easy_click modifier. After reading through the source to see how it parsed the setting, I found that I could get Ctrl+Alt to work by using this line in the config file:
<property name="easy_click" type="string" value="Ctrl><Alt"/>
- After reading the XML file, it will have the modifier string as "Ctrl><Alt".
- When xfwm4 formats that as a modifier (by adding angle brackets around it), it becomes "<Ctrl><Alt>".
- Gtk parses the pair of modifiers correctly and it works as expected.
- How about creating a subsection in Xfce#Tips & Tricks for it, perhaps titled Using multiple modifiers or something along those lines? -- Chazza (talk) 07:30, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
-1 from me for split pages. Reason:
- From my experience, such "Tips & Tricks" pages is more likely become out of date and no one care.
- It is hard for translation team to follow page split(merge).
- I think this is just a simple misunderstanding: this discussion is not about splitting the Tips and tricks section :)
- I'm +1 for adding the multiple modifiers trick under Xfce#Tips and tricks by the way.

- Sorry, I thought you want to create a new page. -- Fengchao 09:38, 14 June 2015
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   and an old bug for Xfce 4.8. . Locking via
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). -- Alad (talk) 10:52, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
- This functionality works fine for me but I use Chazza (talk) 11:05, 13 July 2015 (UTC) . 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? --
- 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 , so not sure what's happening here. -- Alad (talk) 06:04, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
