Notes on Upgrading to Mint 18

Ryan

2016-08-12

I've upgraded my laptop to Linux Mint 18, using XFCE, of course. This time I'm attempting to keep it in better sync with my desktop through the use of vcsh and myrepos.

The changes I had to make were the standard modifications to the panel and using the Mist-X look and feel.

There's a misconfiguration with the XFCE shortcuts that prevents me from making my own. The solution, as described in the following here, here and here is to delete the

/usr/share/mint-configuration-xfce/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml

file.

They did fix the key-up triggering the whisker menu instead of keydown, however it still didn't work with my preferred hotkeys for switching virtual desktops.
