hello,

Is there a way to set the cursor to open folders etc with a single click, like in windows folder options?

thanks for any help.

Open your home folder, and click on
Edit > Preferences

On the Behaviour Tab, click on "Single Click to open Items"

That's for ubuntu, I'm not sure about Xubuntu, but it may help.

I tried changing it to single click in home, edit, preferences, but it did not do anything? Do I need to do a system restart?


for the second suggestion, where is the gconf-editor found?

system preferences main menu system tools, enable gconf-editor
now you can find it in applications system tools

edit: I don't know if this works for xubuntu!

Enter gconf-editor in a terminal or press ALT-F2 and enter it there.

I don't think gconf-editor works in Xubuntu

if its the same in Debian then it should be Menu - Settings - Settings manager

in there you will see File Manager Preferences. Click that and select Behaviour. IN there is an option to use Single click to activate items.
