Press Alt+F2, launch “
xkill“, and click on the window you want to close.
Copy the name of the current file to the mini shell:
“Esc+Enter” (i.e. press Esc, release, then press Enter)
I already knew this. Here are some new ones that I learned today:
The one above has an alternative shortcut:
Paste to the shell the path of the selected panel:
“Esc+a” or “Ctrl+x p”
Paste to the shell the path of the unselected (other) panel:
“Esc+A” or “Ctrl+x Ctrl+p”
These are actually in the man page, so it would be a good idea to read it once :)

Thanks Jeszy for the tip.
Something funny happened to me today. I logged in to my desktop machine at my workplace when a warning message told me that “disk space is low”. A quick “
df -h” indicated that it’s true, my HDD is at 100%! How is it possible, I should occupy no more than 30%. After hunting for 10 minutes for the guilty file/directory, it turned out that the file
.xsession-errors in my HOME directory grew more than 200GB! WTF?
I removed this file and under the name
.xsession-errors I put a link on
/dev/null. However, after a reboot the symbolic link was gone and
.xsession-errors became a regular file again. Tricky :) So I added the following lines to the end of my
# .xsession-errors can grow huge... remove it if [ ! -h $HOME/.xsession-errors ] then /bin/rm $HOME/.xsession-errors ln -s /dev/null $HOME/.xsession-errors fi if [ ! -h $HOME/.xsession-errors.old ] then /bin/rm $HOME/.xsession-errors.old ln -s /dev/null $HOME/.xsession-errors.old fi
It verifies if
.xsession-errors is a symbolic link. If not, remove it and replace it with a symbolic link.
