login on boot

I made a mistake while installing 15.04 last month.

When the install program asked me if I wanted a password challenge on 
boot, I checked "no" by accident.  Now I have a wide open laptop on 
boot, so that someone would have to merely reboot to have full access to 
my home directory.

What do I do to change the system to require a password on boot?

I appreciate that, thank you.

Thunar works great for my needs, and it looks a lot nicer than the
alternatives I've seen.

Now if I could only find out why my USB drives don't register unless
Thunar is running...  >;^>

Never mind - that's another thread I haven't pursued yet.

Thunar going away?

I have seen some talk about this coming, but I couldn't find anything
definitive about it on the web.  Maybe I wasn't looking for the right
search pattern...

What's the scoop, or where can I find this?

Thanks.

mousepad help

I am looking for help for xubuntu's mousepad editor.  When I hit Help in the menu, I get a list of xfce programs

with links to the internet?, but nothing for mousepad.  I want to assign key strokes to make mp similar to wordstar.

I can't change my wifi connection without rebooting

When I click the "Network" icon, the correct wifi node shows, but if I select it, and enter the correct password, it doesn't connect but asks me for the password again. If I have it set to "Automatically connect to this network when it is available", and reboot, it connects with no problem.

I would prefer not to have to reboot if I change from one wifi node to another. Any ideas?

Screen blank during version upgrade

I kicked off an upgrade on my laptop from 14.04 to 15.50 today and it
was all going well (half-way through the installation part) until my
screen went black (I had disabled the screensaver before I started).

The system is still running: I can log into it with ssh, and all the
expected upgrade processes are still there. In the moments after the
screen blacked out, the disk light was still flickering, so it was still
running. Now the light has gone out, almost certainly for one of those
prompts that version upgrade pop up, asking if I want to keep one of the
config files like ssh.conf or smb.conf -- and of course I can't click OK
because I can't see where the mouse is. Pressing Space also doesn't
work, presumably because the focus isn't on the dialog.

Is there a way to determine the process's exact status from a logged in
ssh job? I have appended the output of ps axu in case it helps. I can
just leave it running until I find out...

(I suspect the screen inverter, which has giving trouble, but I had that
replaced last week and it's been fine so far).

xfce4-indicator-plugin 2.3.2

Greetings,
I am using Xubuntu 14.04 on a W650SZ-i7 laptop and experienced a little problem with the network-manager. Certain options cannot be activated after suspending the computer. To produce the error:
Turn off all of the connections;
"Enable Networking" being enabled and "Enable Wifi" being disabled;
suspend the computer;
Turn it on again;
The above-mentioned menus (in " ") are faded. By clicking, they cannot be activated.

I appreciate Xubuntu very much!
Many thanks for having a look at this!
Best regards,

Hi,
why can't I move back and forth anymor like in previous xubuntu 
versions? Also, internal dia show does not work anymore.
It looks like drkonqi is missing, but where do I find it for xubuntu?

HDMI No signal when TV turned back on

So - as the thread title, PC stays on, tv off, then on - get no signal - however I can get to tty2 etc.

Found this thread on the xfce forum https://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?id=9391

This bug on launchpad https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nvidia-graphics-drivers-331/+bug/1308105

I have a script in home

OUTPUT="HDMI-1"
BAD_MODE="1280x720"
GOOD_MODE="1920x1080"

for MODE in $BAD_MODE $GOOD_MODE; do
DISPLAY=:0 xrandr --output $OUTPUT --mode $MODE
sleep 2
done
I have this udev rule

KERNEL=="card0", SUBSYSTEM=="drm", ENV{DISPLAY}=":0", ENV{XAUTHORITY}="/home/home/.Xauthority", RUN+="/home/home/fixhdmi.sh"

I've checked in /dev and it's definitely card0 there.

I've also rebooted without xfsettingsd - and while the desktop looks awful - it does survive tv off and on cycles

TIA

    signal - however I can get to tty2 etc.<br><br>
    Found this thread on the xfce forum
    <a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="https://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?id=9391">https://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?id=9391</a><br><br>
    This bug on launchpad
<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nvidia-graphics-drivers-331/+bug/1308105">https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nvidia-graphics-drivers-331/+bug/1308105</a><br><br>
    I have a script in home<br><br><blockquote>OUTPUT="HDMI-1"<br>
      BAD_MODE="1280x720"<br>
      GOOD_MODE="1920x1080"<br><br>
      for MODE in $BAD_MODE $GOOD_MODE; do<br>
      DISPLAY=:0 xrandr --output $OUTPUT --mode $MODE<br>
      sleep 2<br>
      done<br>
</blockquote>
    I have this udev rule<br><br>
    KERNEL=="card0", SUBSYSTEM=="drm", ENV{DISPLAY}=":0",
    ENV{XAUTHORITY}="/home/home/.Xauthority",
    RUN+="/home/home/fixhdmi.sh"<br><br>
    I've checked in /dev and it's definitely card0 there.<br><br>
    I've also rebooted without xfsettingsd - and while the desktop looks
    awful - it does survive tv off and on cycles<br><br>
    TIA<br><br><br>
