Re: No GTK theme for you!

Tobias Bernard isn't presenting an excuse in that blog post. He's bemoaning the fact that, across years, Gnome theming has caused grief among application developers, driving many of them away (from using GTK3 toolkit). Maybe because GTK3 isn't a stable toolkit? Maybe because GTK3 isn't a toolkit - ...

No GTK theme for you!

After consistently breaking themes twice a year since the release of Gnome/GTK 3.0 in 2011 Gnome developers have now had enough. They want to break GTK theming for good. GTK3 is finally stable and no longer the development branch so this would apply to GTK4 and newer. The excuse is that themes never...

Re: Missing mouse theme integration in QT applications

Root has its own theming. You'll have to run the appearance settings as root to set the cursor theme--for KDE, "kdesu systemsettings5" if you've set the symlink for kdesu as has been suggested in the past. Yes, that's true. I didn't think about that because root GTK apps like Synaptic automatically...

Re: Missing mouse theme integration in QT applications

on my system, cursor theme changes in Qt will be picked up after a login/logout tested with "obsidian" mouse cursor theme The integration was only missing in MXPI and other QT programs running as root. KDE is a known "theme breaker" so I proceeded to completely remove a bunch of (maybe 200) KDE rel...

Anyone else seeing this?
QT apps seem to fallback to "generic" mouse theme.

[Solved] Missing mouse theme integration in QT applications

I'm using Breeze mouse theme from the repos and I'm not seeing any mouse theme integration in QT applications. Anyone else seeing this?

Re: Libre office 6.1

I downloaded version 6.1.2.1 as AppImage from LibreOffice. I was happy to see that 6.1 as AppImage is still fully GTK2 (VCL). I have seen screenshots of ugly (less useful) GTK3 dialogs coming to LO 6.1. Of course the AppImage can't be built against GTK3 because it targets distros from 2010 and later.

Re: mx tool to manage users

Since your old account is "screwed" only copy your files (documents, music, videos, downloads etc). Don't copy any settings. MX User Manager is great, but not really needed in this case. Not very pro tip (but useful): To avoid problems with permissions you can first copy your files to an NTFS drive ...

Re: Adding Appimage to menu

If you place an AppImage outside your home folder then you need to be root to change permission and run it. Isn't that dangerous and maybe also the reason some people don't see the "add to menu" dialog?

Re: Adding Appimage to menu

appimages only ask if there is a special dameon running, which we do not have (at least they shouldn't ask...I might be wrong about that part) I think I know what you are referring to, but I don't have a special daemon running and MineTime-1.4.5-x86_64.AppImage asked at first launch if I wanted to ...
