Enable the advanced menu on the Acer Aspire One
September 23, 2008
Acer Aspire One

The Acer Aspire ships with Linpus Linux configured to be extremely simple to use. It is likely that you will soon find the simplistic interface too restrictive. To get to the functions you can't see, you must enable the "Advanced Menu."

Go to "My Files". Select from the window menu File>Terminal.

In the terminal type:


This brings up the Xfce Settings window. Click the "Desktop" icon, and the Desktop Preferences window will appear. Click the Behavior tab, and select "Show desktop menu on right click. Close the window. (Note: If you cannot see the "Close" button on the bottom right, you can just click the red X in the upper right. Many Acer windows are a little too big for the screen. )

This enables the right-click advanced menu. When in the Home window, right click on one of the empty spaces, and you'll see the new menu.

Thanks very much to the many users of the AspireOneUser Forums for this tip.
