Re: Antech Icons

FWIW, I've been using this transparent logo for the Whisker menu lately, since I have a transparent panel. Many of the icons already have transparent backgrounds (eg. apt notifier, HPLIP, mixer, USB unmounter, clipman,...)

Re: Antech Icons

I cropped a simple icon shape for illustration, but the USB symbol is a possible inclusion, although MX USB Unmounter works for optical media too, I think?

Re: Install from Test Repo

Should Install from Test Repo be gone from MX Tools? Is it still there because I got to 16.1 by upgrade rather than installation? It's deprecated, you should remove it (use synaptic or even package installer). . Possibly overlooked in the migration thread (I thought it might automatically get remov...

Re: Antech Icons

Looks nice. I dabbled with a couple of alternative Whisker Menu and Settings Manager icons in MX-15, I think it was now. I'll do a clean HDD install of MX-16.1 eventually. The current MX-16 has some legacies like Compton Manager and various apps and themes naturally, although fully dist upgraded to ...

Re: Antech Icons

In here, where you can see look and panel icons. Admittedly you could even two tone the background or something to reflect light/dark themes, but just a thought on working from familiar conventions. :happy:

Re: Antech Icons

Anybody got any ideas for the default look icon? Maybe leave as is and just make it look more modern? Thanks The Settings Manager Panel icon could be modified, adopting and adapting the default look graphic elements to the Panel icon style? Edit....could each MX application icon even be themed as s...

Re: Request Please Home folder separate?

Separate (with common data partition for each OS to share/save space) *Edit: reading forward I suspect I've adopted a Mepis etc. legacy convention for partitioning and had no particular reason to revise my approach or give it much thought until now. Data partition, external backups and having at lea...

Re: antechdesigns wallpaper

*edit* Just checked it from the live USB, downloaded to pictures folder, and selected it, look fine on mine, is it just that image that does it or does the default ones do it eg. kingfisher? Funny thing is even the Live USB browsing the image location in FF shows the same rendering issue. The defau...

Re: antechdesigns wallpaper

'MX LINUX LIGHTBLUE ABSTRACT:' here looks great on my desktop but when using a LIve USB it renders as if here was a low palate count and decreased colours with pixeled abrupt gradients, instead of the imperceptible gradient I expected. I double checked but can't account for this and just wonder if ...
