Re: DE's and Ram use

...still more ram use than the old gtk2 version of Xfce in Mint 18 which was 345 mb ram on fresh boot: But that could still be explained - whether fully or partially - by new versions of the base packages getting bigger and more complex. Both MX16 and MX17 run the gtk2-based XFCE 4.12. MX17 has hig...

After initial bootup and login, I let it settle down for a while before checking RAM in htop: about 453 MB RAM. WIth Firefox (3 tabs), Thunar 1.8 and htop open, RAM usage is 980 MB.

Re: MX Tools icons

That's a bit of a kicker. Would it be possible to have a complete icon set which is fixed and doesn't change for the tools? I am against this.

Re: Here is my newly found freedom :)

Looks like a fancier model than the one my friend's father uses. But you're right about freedom. His spine has gotten more and more bent over with age.

@Eadwine Rose,
you mentioned, "First, make sure you have jq and curl installed on your system."

I have curl but can't find jq.
Where might it be found?
By another name?
