A few quick questions about settings

Hello all,

  • I am wondering how I can go about keeping notifications persistent until I clear them, or perhaps even save them all to a log I could reference later if need be? I was using KDE Plasma before this and I really came to like that they would stay there until I manually got rid of them.

  • I was also wondering, why is it when I set update-locale LC_COLLATE=C the items with a leading underscore in their name for some reason go to the bottom and don't seem to care what order they are in alphabetically? Every other distro I have tried, settings LC_COLLATE=C puts underscore items at the top and in alphabetical order. I would definitely like to figure out what needs to be set for this to be the case as I often designate certain folders with underscore to stay at the top of long lists of folders.

  • Another is, how do I change which terminal opens with the Super + T hotkey? I was wanting to use an application I found in the shop called Tilix in place of the default. The only option under shortcuts is what the actual key is:

Then under default applications, there is no option for terminal.​


  • My last question is, is it possible to have a global middle mouse button down scroll? I know I can get the "AutoScroll" extension in the browser, but of course that only works in the browser in which you have it installed. Is there no built-in functionality for that?
Thanks,

Hi and welcome,

First I'm not sure about the notifications because I have mine set to clear on shutdown and I have purge temp files on. Maybe one of the System76 devs can tell you where that log is located. Maybe another user can shed more light for you on notifications.

You can set custom keyboard shortcuts if you go to the bottom of that list and add one. I've got a few to open particular programs. You can create your own to open Tilix. I'm pretty certain Super + t is hard fixed to Terminal.
Making Tilix a default shell is possible. It should be something like chsh -s /usr/bin/tilix. You should have an entry in both /bin/tilix and /usr/bin/tilix in /etc/shells. You will need to log out and back.

Are you talking about "Natural scrolling"? There is a toggle in Settings>Devices>Mouse and Touchpad to change the scrolling direction.

Hey there, I appreciate the reply.

I can certainly set a new hotkey for the terminal, that is no issue, as it makes sense what you mentioned.
As for scrolling, I was referring to when you press and hold the middle mouse wheel button (not rolling the wheel) and then drag the mouse up or down to scroll faster than repeatedly rolling the wheel.

There's a symbolic link to /usr/bin/x-terminal-emulator which determines which terminal will open when Super + T is pressed. You can change the default terminal, from the terminal, with sudo update-alternatives --config x-terminal-emulator.

I appreciate the reply. After all was said and done, I ended up installing Yakuaku, which after some modification, I liked better, so I am going to have that use its own hotkey, and keep the default terminal as is, just in case of whatever.

Hopefully someone might end up having some insight as to some of the other things, but I would imagine they are probably not something that ends up coming up super often.

Good call. (y)

No, I've never seen those requests on Pop, but someone would have experienced that or wants to use that and can share here at some point.

I haven't tested it (or any of the similar extensions), but something like this might help with your notification issue.
