OK. Then try >Panel >Panel Preferences >Items >Window Buttons >Sorting order >select >none allow drag and drop. That should do it.

Yes it does. Just tested it.

As I've already said the "hand" drag and drop indication appears because you can drag the application to another desktop.

I don't think that's what he wants to do, but to move/swap windows minimized to panel within the panel, which as far as I know is possible, but it would appear that he also wants to move them to a random place within the panel.

What I refer to, and I believe thedoor does as well, are the open applications on the taskbar such as browser, email, terminal and file manager.

oops yes I meant the original poster - I corrected....

Yes. I like to drag open applications on my taskbar to other places on the taskbar. I've been able to do that in many other Ubuntu-based distros. Since I see a hand/arrow appear when I attempt to drag an app to another taskbar place, I figured that the system was aware of what I was wanting to do and would accommodate me. But it doesn't. Seems like we're half way there, but nobody's listening. If other distros can do it, the best one ought to be able to do it too.

This is not a distro feature, but a desktop environment feature, you can't do that in Gnome since there's no "taskbar" there, at least not without installing a gnome extension providing such a feature, so it won't matter which distro Gnome is running on, the feature isn't just available. In XFCE, you can swap the icons/windows' tabs from minimized apps to panel. Could it be that you're trying to do something that XFCE can't do?

Other / Re: rsyslog not active
« Last post by noweare on June 22, 2021, 07:01:22 PM »
I found out that rsyslog was not installed even though the status returned something that looked like it was present but just not running. When I installed syslog-ng it must of uninstalled rsyslog as part of its install. After installing rsyslog the system logs started filling again.

The rsyslog.conf file allows you to set up a log server that can be the hub of all your networked hosts by communicating through udp or tcp with the clients. I am just happy getting my logs back so I will stop here for now.

Other / [ SOLVED ] rsyslog not active
« Last post by noweare on June 22, 2021, 04:04:10 PM »
Hello,
I am using LL 5.4
I installed syslog-ng which is a well known logging system.
After a couple of days I uninstalled it now my system does not log.

systemctl status rsyslog.service
returns:
rsyslog.service - LSB: enhanced syslogd
     Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/rsyslog; generated)
     Active: active (exited) since Tue 2021-06-22 15:03:42 EDT; 48min ago
TriggeredBy: ● syslog.socket
       Docs: man:systemd-sysv-generator(8)
    Process: 2553 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/rsyslog start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)

On my LL4.x laptop rsyslog is running and active the same command returns:
Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/rslog.service
Acitve: active (running)
Main PID: 804 rsyslogd
CGroup: /system.slice/ryslog.service
                 804 /usr/sbin/rsyslogd -n

It looks like in LL 5.4  is using a script from the old init SysV  system
and LL 4.x is using the new init systemd system. 
Wondering how I can get rsyslog back running again.

Thanks

@stompy

You should be able to reset the password -- https://www.linuxliteos.com/manual/install.html?q=password&x=0&y=0&per_page=7&matchtype=0#respassword

If you had more than one user (with root/sudo) and can log in or able to access a TTY, you can reset PW with...
Code: [Select]
sudo passwd username

If you reset and can access LL... you may want to revert if you made a recent back up - 3.8 TimeShift? I think it might still be... SystemBack...

What is it exactly you want to do? Move where?

Re-arrange the tabs on the taskbar, like I can do with the tabs in Firefox.

Have you made any changes to panel's default settings?
