Re: Libre office 6.1

LO 6.1.0 has just been released. There are several changes from 6.0 and from the discussions on the LO User group I think there may be a few bugs. Perhaps wait a bit then put it into the test repo? Sounds good to me. LO is productivity software so if anyone is using it as such, they may not like up...

Re: modify basic firefox setup

How would one modify the basic firefox setup that would be used for all new users on a new snapshot? If I copied my .mozilla to /etc/skel, would that cause some conflict with each user having the same xxx.default folder in their .mozilla directory? Earl I think user profiles are portable, not tied ...

The MX Manual contains many references to the MX Wiki. including links for scanners and gscan2pdf - could you not find them ?
I couldn't find a link to this in the User Manual:

MX Wiki info is flying under the radar

One of the good things about MX Linux is the User Manual. I think it has the right length and depth. An additional source of info is the MX Wiki which I feel is easily forgotten. My suggestion is to add important Wiki links to the User Manual. The User Manual mentions "scanner" and mentions "gscan2p...

Re: MX-17 Screenshots

https://s19.postimg.cc/iyuszs8bn/MX-17_Bubbles_Screensaver_2.png I continue my Windows fetish with Bubbles screensaver. It runs glitch-free, but screenshots don’t do it justice. The screenshot utility aborts the screensaver when taking the screenshot and that might be what causes the bubbles to app...

Re: Whiskermenu edits in gtk-3.0

Is there no fallback for the gtk3 version to the gtk3 theme in use? The gtk2 version just adopts the gtk2 (gtkrc file) theme colors. After my initial tests with oomox, I think that this is not a question of whether there is a fallback to the gtk3 theme in use (because there is)... That was my quest...

Re: Whiskermenu edits in gtk-3.0

That's useful info. Thanks. Let's hope this doesn't come to MX-17 and break our current themes. ;)

How come dist-upgrade doesn't switch to Buster repos?
I see that do-release-upgrade is what takes you to the next release in Ubuntu.

Re: Full upgrade

If you don't mess with the sources we actually recommend full-upgrade because this way you get new packages we add or remove the obsolete ones. However, there are two pre-conditions: no monkeying with the sources, and reading and understanding the prompts . Also, I don't think full-upgrade is appro...

Re: XFWM compositor settings

Shadows are often defined by the window manager theme - in this case your xfwm theme. Some themes have very subtle shadows or no shadows at all. One thing that struck me is that an xfwm theme can define window placement. I set xfce to center windows, but one theme opened windows in upper left corner...
