Re: What Linux Needs To Do To Reach The Masses.

According to this comment Jim Zemlin Executive Director of Linux Foundation told him already in 2008 that Linux is NOT important on the desktop. ken starks April 3, 2017 at 11:08 pm In 2008, I was asked to attend the (by invitation only), Linux Collaboration Summit in Austin Texas.

Re: xfce 4.14 released

Packages installed without problems on MX. Nice packaging, Stevo. Maybe there was a problem with Xfce Screensaver packages which showed up as armhf. I will stick with Xfce 4.12 and then switch to LXQt or KDE.

Re: xfce 4.14 released

Wait a day or so until I get all the panel plugins in there, too. Lots of them won't work until they get rebuilt against the new panel libraries. You'll also be on your own if your existing gtk2 theme doesn't support GTK 3 very well, and will have to use a new one or use one of the builtin ones. OK.

I am exploring backporting it for Stretch and Buster in these separate OBS repositories: https://build.opensuse.org/project/show ... :xfce-4.14

So far, so good.
Nice. I'm ready to break a system. ;)

Re: What Linux Needs To Do To Reach The Masses.

G**gle did it with android, due to the world's smart phone addiction. Has anyone wondered why Android apk packages are small compared to Flatpaks and Snaps? I have. Maybe Google solved the problem with sandboxed apps without using a lot of data? I think Flatpaks and Snaps make Linux look inferior o...

Re: MX-17/18 - How to fix KDE from MXPI - a work in progress

I don't think we ever actually packaged the /etc/X11/Xsession.d/98qtconfig file. desktop-defaults-xfce-mx17 actually removes it if its found to match the default file we were working with at the time. the new file is here: https://github.com/MX-Linux/desktop-defaults-xfce-mx17/blob/master/56xfce4-q...

Re: MX-17/18 - How to fix KDE from MXPI - it's easy

export QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=gtk2 export QT_PLATFORMTHEME=gtk2 export QT_PLATFORM_PLUGIN=gtk2 Is that what the 98qtconfig file is supposed to look like? I think it looked like that before I changed it. I have no idea how to theme gtk apps in KDE. KDE has a GTK module in Settings that themes GTK 2 an...

Re: MX-17/18 - How to fix KDE from MXPI - it's easy

desktop-defaults-xfce-mx17 The script you posted is supposed to be in 56xfce4-qtconfig. I have that one, but I recently updated desktop-defaults-xfce-mx17 and didn't think it would matter because I was looking for 98qtconfig I will run with default config files and see how that goes. But it's also ...

No, both times theming completely broken (fully up to date with MX repo). Unfortunately I just checked Xfce and the solution I posted does seem to affect Xfce (fonts and theming slightly). I always said don't mix KDE with other desktops. I think I stick to that statement. (If you don't theme KDE an...
