A test rebuild appears to work. Packages soon.
Skippy-xd is now available in the MX-17 Test repo.
Tim, this works as it's supposed to and can be moved to Main Repo.

Thanks.

Re: MX 18 Does not shutdown/reboot

isn't systemctl a systemd command?

If you aren't using systemd as init, would that command even be applicable at all?

Re: xfwm borders theme

I've asked Tim to move the new Arc themes with thicker borders to main along with a new mx-greybird-themes package with bigger borders, so everyone using those will see fatter borders. 300% better, since 3 pixels wide beats 1 pixel wide by 300%! I suppose I can also add the other Greybird variants ...

Re: REQUEST: Piepmatz - Twitter client

Is there a reason you are requesting 2 different Twitter clients?

I'm curious.

Re: Increase the resizing space for the windows in XFCE4?

We could just package it as a window-decorations-only WM theme called "Adaptable Thick Borders", which is theme-independent and just shows up in the Window Manager settings. It just needs to hold the xfwm4 folder. The point is that I could be using any theme, e.g. adapta, Qogir, Vimix, Ant, and just...

Re: xfwm borders theme

Don't just change the theme; change the Window Manager theme as the latter is what sets the window bar design and borders for many (not all) programs like Thunar. Open MX-Tweak, click on the second button at the bottom called Window Manager, and try a few WM themes. Some are more grabbable than othe...

Re: Increase the resizing space for the windows in XFCE4?

Why didn't we rebuild the thick-grip greybird themes for MX 17 again? It seems that they work well.... Other xfwm border themes are not anywhere as hard to configure and build into deb packages as Arc--but I'm pretty swamped at the moment with package requests and normal updates. We could use some ...
