Re: File selection is weird

I don't follow that, but you can change the behavior as we have indicated.
It is the first time I see such a thing.
Have you used an Xfce-based distro before?

Re: I'm playing whack-a-mole with XFCE bugs - screensaver edition

I'm questioning the wisdom of using XFCE at all. The only reason I went with it is because I can actually get it to build and therefore, theoretically, have the possibility of fixing things. Does anybody on the MX actually do their own build of XFCE, or is this just repackaged? I'm not sure how to ...

Re: File selection is weird

Welcome to the Forum. Will the behaviour be normalized everywhere? I'm not quite sure what you mean with this question, sorry. We have little control over Thunar in general, since it is an integral part of Xfce4 itself. You can switch to a double click if you want: Thunar > Edit > Preferences, unche...

Re: Cannot open loaclly stored .html files in Firefox Version 64.0.2

Is there another application apart from a web browser that will open .html files? I hope that is not a stupid question! There are editors, but that is not what you want. I don't understand why changing the default application doesn't work for you. It does here with MX.17/18. 1) Can you post the con...

Re: Cannot open loaclly stored .html files in Firefox Version 64.0.2

For the second time: did you try changing the Preferred Application type for html files? I'll paste it out of the Users Manual if that helps: Many defaults for specific file types are set during an application’s installation. But often multiple options exist for a given file type, and a user would l...

Re: Translation option

I suspect such an extension is available for most of the modern browsers. I use Firefox and Opera, both of which offer them, especially FF: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=translation&platform=Linux&appver=64.0.2 Opera has access to many Chrome add-ons, but haven't looked for a tr...

Re: Dell XPS 15 9560 and MX 18

Thanks for the detailed post about the XPS 15. I had a bunch of trouble with the XPS 13 9343 that I documented in some detail, but not as much as you have had.

Re: Blobby Volley MX-18 Edition ;)

Community project? Contribute custom graphics assets & package an MX-flavored version of the game?
A great idea!
