Probably a dumb question, but I can't figure it out. After I install a theme using MXPI, how do I activate the theme? Is it the same as 'Style' ?
Settings>Appearance>Style. It should show up in there and click on the one you like to use.

Re: Application start up time.

If both your signature and avatar proclaim you are CLI-adverse and you shout at those suggesting even the simplest one-liner , you *are* seriously reducing the number of people who will bother trying to help, you know. Thank you for your advice. I only did that because Adrian was being a wise-guy w...

Re: Application start up time.

Adrian is right, it will help you immensely if you try to understand what the command means. You asked for advice on something which is only possible using a short command string, perhaps one of the simplest command strings you might encounter. Your world will open to greater possibilities if you u...

Re: Application start up time.

Didn't you notice that "sleep" is the first command, why did you stick it at the end of that string how do you image "sleep" command would run if you type something like /blah/blah/blah/sleep in front?

Re: Application start up time.

It didn't work. The program didn't auto start. This was the original command that worked. "/usr/local/Astrill/astrill" /autostart I replaced it like you said like this, "/usr/local/Astrill/sleep 5 && astrill" /autostart
