Examples for GNOME settings.
manage applications on startup in GNOME 3
Startup applications are automatically started when you log in. With the program
gnome-tweaks you can easily manage startup applications.
After the program
gnome-tweaks is installed
# dnf install gnome-tweaks
you can start it:
The following picture shows the adding of an automatic start of a terminal emulation with the program
gnome-tweaks after log in.
This generates the file:
From the directory
/usr/share/applications you can also simple copy desktop-files:
$ cp /usr/share/applications/org.gnome.Terminal.desktop ~/.config/autostart/
With the tool
gnome-tweaks it is also easy to switch on the buttons 'Minimize' and 'Maximize' in the titlebar of windows.
As well with the command
gsettings you can also change the button-layout to add 'Minimize' and 'Maximize'
$ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout 'appmenu:minimize,maximize,close'
or check the setting:
$ gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout 'appmenu:minimize,maximize,close' $
By default shell extensions are disabled. So first you need to allow user-extensions , before you can use it.
The appropriate command to general switch on extensions is:
$ gsettings set org.gnome.shell disable-user-extensions false
My favorite extension is 'Dash to Dock'. Fedora provides the package
gnome-shell-extension-dash-to-dock for it. By default this package is not installed with the GNOME desktop.
# dnf install -y gnome-shell-extension-dash-to-dock
/etc/gdm/custom.conf file and make sure that the
[daemon] section in the file specifies the following:
[daemon] AutomaticLoginEnable=True AutomaticLogin=username
