This is my favorite GUI text editor for Linux, I use the Windows version all the time too. I also covered this topic here.

I'm using Mint Cinnamone installed on virtual machine VMWare. The instruction helped me to adjust my mouse scroll wheel speed. I set the value to 6. Now it's comfortable to use the mouse. Thanks a lot!

Fix theme in Linux Mint 17.1 Xfce after enabling Compiz

Fix theme in Linux Mint 17.1 Xfce after enabling Compiz

After you enable window Manager Compiz in Linux Mint 17.1 Xfce and install a new theme, and then activate the theme in the program's appearance does not change the top frame of the window.
In this article I want to show you how to fix it. For example, I chose to install themes Gnome Cupertino, which looks very well in Linux Mint 17.1 Xfce.

Sorry for the spelling and phonetic errors in the text.

Installing the theme Gnome Cupertino

cd /tmp && wget http://gnome-look.org/CONTENT/content-files/165104-Gnome-Cupertino.tar.gz && tar -xvf 165104-Gnome-Cupertino.tar.gz
sudo mv Gnome-Cupertino /usr/share/themes

After installation, open appearance and activate the theme:

But after you activate the theme, the window frame remains the same.
To fix this you need to install the Configurator system files - Editor dconf, which is the program Manager or run the following command in the terminal:

sudo apt install dconf-tools

After installation, open from the menu dconf Editor, go to the following address: org/gnome/desktop/wm/preferences and in the line theme, change the name of the theme on Gnome-Cupertino:

Now the window frames should vary according to the installed and activated the theme Gnome Cupertino.
P.S. Here in the dconf Editor, under preferences-line button-layout you can change the location of the buttons control the window from right to left, and their order is: close,minimize,maximize.

not experienced such problems, probably to verify that you need to run dconf from the terminal. Or it may be necessary in your case to run with the rights of root
