Mousepad Editor Menu Visibility Problem

| Permalink

Hi. Shortly, the Mousepad is a simple text editor for Xfce.

I have faced an issue while using it. I unchecked the "Menu Bar" under the view menu by mistake.

So, there was no settings menu to change it again.

I googled about this problem and I found a solution.

Disable Menu Bar Visibility by Terminal

Using this command, you can disable the menu bar.

gsettings set org.xfce.mousepad.preferences.window menubar-visible false

Enable Menu Bar Visibility by Terminal

Using this command, you can enable the menu bar.

gsettings set org.xfce.mousepad.preferences.window menubar-visible true

Show All Settings

If you want to see all the settings, you can use this command;

gsettings list-recursively org.xfce.mousepad.preferences

You will see an output like that;

org.xfce.mousepad.preferences.view show-whitespace false
org.xfce.mousepad.preferences.view smart-home-end 'disabled'
org.xfce.mousepad.preferences.view color-scheme 'oblivion'
