    [SOLVED] Re: screen displays old window contents

    Thanks, I'll try that. I've been away from the office for some days so just now got back to the troublesome PC. It may take some time to see if things change, since the fault only showed itself now...

    [SOLVED] Re: desktop zooms out and 'floats'

    Ah, that did it, thanks! Actually, I'm not using a mouse, just a touchpad, but holding alt and moving on the right edge did the trick :-)

  12. [SOLVED] How to stop window auto resize and movement in Xubuntu

    Hi!

    I'm running Xubuntu 16.04. If I drag windows to the edge of the screen they end up being resized and sometimes moved. I don't want them to do anything! How can I stop this?

    Thanks!
  13. [SOLVED] Re: OS boot manager not found after update, 16.04

    Quick update. For no reason I can think of, my PC now boots into Xubuntu again without any problems. I assume one of the updates over the last week changed something again....!
  14. [SOLVED] Re: OS boot manager not found after update, 16.04

  17. [SOLVED] Re: How to copy-paste between terminals with HP Spectre x360 - touchpad

    Hi Folks,

    Solved (I will mark it). Checking those terminal settings (suggested by runrickus) I saw Shift-CTRL-c and -p, and this works! The CTRL-shift-c didn't. The order seems to matter, which I...
  18. [SOLVED] Re: How to copy-paste between terminals with HP Spectre x360 - touchpad

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for the suggestions, but nothing works. For example CTRL-ALT-C just causes ^C, and any "paste" I get to won't paste. Maybe xfce4-terminal (which I use) behaves different to xterm,...
