7.7.2. Graphical environment

  • Try all the mouse buttons in different regions (terminal, background, task bar).

  • Explore the menus.

  • Customize your terminal window.

  • Use the mouse buttons to copy and paste text from one terminal to another.

  • Find out how to configure your window manager; try different workspaces (virtual screens).

  • Add an applet, such as a load monitor, to the task bar.

  • Apply a different theme.

  • Enable the so-called sloppy focus - this is when a window is activated by just moving the mouse over it, so that you do not need to click the window in order to be able to use it.

  • Switch to a different window manager.

  • Log out and select a different session type, like KDE if you were using Gnome before. Repeat the previous steps.
