Re: Back to the Future

I was poking around that arc-kde github, and the reason that the Papirus devs packaged Kvantum is that they are using it to apply Arc themes to KDE. Their themes will also work with our Qt 4 Kvantum, no issues, though I'm sure that where the Arc and Arc Dark themes bundled with Kvantum came from or...

Re: MX 15/16 Mate

old thread but thought I would chime in. using MATE 1.16.1 right now on Stretch. I'm using greenlaguna theme which looks good to me, along with MATE faenza icons. Both the desktop and Debian 9 are very solid. I still lean a bit more toward KDE and Xfce but MATE is a nice full featured DE.

That's great!

MX Printer Setup Excellent

Trying to setup my HP printer in Debian is a pain. In Ubuntu it automatically detects it. It was a pleasure setting it up in MX 16 taking maybe 2 minutes from start to printing a test page.
Great job guys. I continue to be impressed with your fine work!

Re: Distrowatch ranking

I agree MX 16 is good as is. Indeed, I will be holding onto a couple of installs of old Stable when new Stable arrives including MX 16. But it will be nice to see MX 17 arrive after new Stable is out of the box and from what I am seeing people will be equally pleased with the next iteration of MX.

Re: Distrowatch ranking

I imagine when new Stable arrives and MX is released in new Stable there will be a big bump. But 28th is pretty impressive considering Jessie has been out for almost two years now and some may be waiting to install or update. BTW Stretch is looking good in RC3. I've done two installs based on it--KD...

Re: Back to the Future

Yeah I really like KDE. But always end up back with Xfce. It has the right amount of options and abilities while still being somewhat minimalist. MX 16 is quickly becoming my favorite Linux distro and that is saying a lot as I have tried just about everything Linux has or at least that looked appeal...
