Re: how to change the icon of an application (qpdfview)?

The icon files for qpdfview are in: /usr/share/icons/Papirus/22x22/apps/ , and elsewhere in ..../Papirus/ they are svg files so you could draw your own and place it (them) in the folder. I did that years ago when developing databases in Pascal. Yes, if he is using an icon theme that supplies an ico...

Re: how to change the icon of an application (qpdfview)?

The qpdfview.desktop file (all the shortcuts) might use this icon: /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/qpdfview.svg (which is 48x48 pixels according to Thunar). (I wish the Thunar dialog in usr/share/applications pointed to a specific icon instead of generic categories). The qpdfview executable m...

Re: how to change the icon of an application (qpdfview)?

I forgot. If you want to change the icon inside the program you need to find the icon associated with the executable. This is easy if the executable is in /opt, but in this case it isn't. .desktop files are just shortcuts with a few attributes. Once the program has launched the .desktop icon doesn't...

Re: how to change the icon of an application (qpdfview)?

usr/share/pixmaps is a good location to check, but it isn't there. I just discovered ANGRYsearch (in test repo). With that program you should be able to find anything on your root (/) partition. If you search for qpdfview you should be able to locate the icon (if the icon is called qpdfview). A bett...

Re: auto dist-upgrade?

How safe is it to enable this? What if the person in front of the computer tries to shut down or restart while packages are being updated in the background?

I personally don't like the idea of auto-updating, but it can be useful and if it works it's pretty cool from a technical perspective.

Re: Screenlets "ghost update"

I forwardported python-gmenu from Jessie and cut out a few dependencies that aren't available in Stretch. The fixed version should be available in the MX 17 repo soon. However, this brings up the question of what version was already installed, since the MX 17 version was not installable until this ...

Re: How many folks use mx-select-sound

I uninstalled pulseaudio on MX-17 as a test. mx-select-sound didn't work or I couldn't make it work so I reinstalled pulseaudio. Fortunately pulseaudio has been good enough on MX-17. Fact is that I have tried to run many distros without pulseaudio and never have the sound selector utilities worked f...
