Xubuntu Display Settings

Nigel Verity

Hi


I've been doing a bit of distro hopping recently and have returned to my Linux "first love" - Xubuntu. Xfce has improved considerably since I abandoned it 3 or 4 years ago for MATE. It was always capable of looking really good, but the default theme settings used on Xubuntu and most other distros used to be pretty uninspiring.


Everything works brilliantly, but I have one minor issue which I can't fathom out. I have installed Xubuntu on a laptop. If it is running on battery power and I then plug the mains adaptor in to top the battery up the "Display Settings" dialog appears - not one instance, sometimes 5 or 6.


I could understand this if I were plugging a monitor in, but I am simply applying mains power.


Any ideas, please?


Thanks


Nige

Do you see anything useful in /var/log/syslog when you plug it in?
If, in a terminal, your run
tail -f /var/log/syslog
then it will show the end of syslog and wait for new stuff to be
written there. Then plug in the mains and see what happens in the
terminal.  If necessary you can copy/paste the extra stuff here (use
Ctrl+Shift+C to copy marked text from the terminal).
