Re: is there a way to permanently force optirun on a program?

Or edit the existing menu entry to add "optirun" at the start. That's what I did for Google Earth Pro, since it's broken with my Intel GPU when it uses the "intel" driver. I don't know if you see any difference with VLC or Firefox though, since they aren't doing any 3D rendering, as far as I know......

Re: MX 17 Repository: The Featherpad Thread

Can I patch that in the source somehow and rebuild; also report the bug to the developer at github with the fix?

Hmmm--seems like more of a bug in the code than in a translation file, which means the developer should fix it.

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

claws-mail-3.17.3 for MX-17/18 only. I still can't get libgpgme-dev from stretch to go on either a jessie VM or with pbuilder. So no new set for MX-15/16. Does what you did for 3.17.1 for MX 15 not work any more? claws-mail (3.17.1-1mx15+1) mx; urgency=medium * Repackaged for MX 15 & 16. * deprecat...

Re: xfwm borders theme

They have to be built into the theme. Did you try today's updates to the Arc, Arc Dark, or Greybird-*-mx17 themes? Those have thicker borders, and I can make those even thicker if enough users want that. Here's an Arc theme deb with even thicker borders--somehow I resisted calling it "arc-theme-thic...

Re: i965-va-driver

I think all you need to add is our newer vainfo and i965-va-driver. I missed updating those for the MX 18 release, but they are now in the main repo. I'm glad to see you also have va-api acceleration working with our players--as I understand, some might need to be rebuilt with our newer libva...or i...

Re: MX 17 Repository: The Backported Debian Kernel Thread

We now have the latest backport from Sid, the 4.19.16 kernel, in the test repo, except this has the 4.19.0-2 ABI, so won't be an automatic upgrade to the MX 18 kernel.

Re: Two question about hibernation

Debian's upstream kernels disable hibernation altogether when Secure Boot is enabled, since there's no way to secure those images.

Re: xfwm borders theme

Another reason Qogir is a worthwhile them to review/ use is that I believe it already does most of what you are trying to accomplish with the border and as well as offering a small right-hand drag corner to enlarge/ resize Thunar as well as a few other windows.
