Re: MX18 Continuum (Minimal) Release

To be practical, Manyroads is American and English-speaking. He's trying to create a minimal iso mainly for his own use. Some prioritisation has to be done and decisions made as to what to cut out of the iso. I'm from the other side of the world. I could also say that there are parts of that region ...

Re: MX18 Continuum (Minimal) Release

Haha, I knew a French speaker would take objection with this!

Re: DW: Musing on distros after prolonged use

...I am learning that I have to remember to disable a repo I temporarily enabled before running a dist-upgrade. And maybe gdebi contributed? I'm not sure but I think using gdebi to install the latest SMTube opened the doors to some upgrade problems. What repos are you enabling? :eek: It might be be...

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

Yes, the Debian package uses the arc-theme original source code, which doesn't ship png, xpm, or anything but the text vector image svg files. The build process then uses Inkscape to generate all those other elements during the build, also adapting to whatever version of GTK+3 it's being built agai...

Re: MX Distro for "not new" users

... The reason many people propose solutions via CLI is because it is quicker & easier to type out. ... Also, doing certain things via CLI may bring up much more information in the error messages, which helps with problem solving. Of course, you have to trust the person providing the terminal comma...

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

I don't really use the hidpi ones. But visually thick may not automatically mean the grabbable area is also thick, I think. Will need to be checked, but I'm off to sleep now.

If rich's borders and arc dark wm themes can be packaged as well, it would be great. Not everyone needs giant window bars.

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

I haven't read up yet on how the .xpm files can be adjusted to change thickness. So the discussion above is still all Greek to me. But the themes I'm using include those that don't have contrasting colours at their edges, e.g. Greybird. Yet rich's borders theme makes a thin outline in the same colou...

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

I have found rich's "borders" WM theme referred to in the first post of that thread cited by richb. https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php?p=450794#p450794 It's truly amazing because the window bar appears to take on the background colour of whatever theme you're using, while the active window's bo...

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

Aha! It was the other rich!

Yes. Unfortunately his opendesktop link is no longer available, and I don't have his "sneaky camouflage" version that blends with Greybird.

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

Hang on... I think at one stage someone actually worked on Arc-dark WM borders. I have this in my MX15/16 $HOME/.themes folder, called Arc-Dark-MX-Borders, only the xfwm4 folder: It's SUPER THICK! https://app.box.com/s/o533x2591o6plpuvuhy8hndi2p6fmljq I have a faint recollection of someone in the fo...
