Re: Is there a 64 bit version of MX-14 in the wings?

64bit debs of mx-findshares, mx-flash, mx-tools, & mx-viewer are now available in the main MX-14 repo. Mx-findshares has a hand-built makefile specifying compiler flags for 486 compatible i686 optimized compilation. That had to be changed to build the 64bit package. The other 3 were no problem. Exc...

Re: Is there a 64 bit version of MX-14 in the wings?

The devs have said they haven't the time. If anyone is interested they will cheer them on. (I've got an installation of antiX 13.2_64 with KDE-Standard and a tweak or two that runs fine.) Yes, I understand that they don't have the time to develop a full fledged 64 bit system, and that is not what I...

Re: Is there a 64 bit version of MX-14 in the wings?

I also can't find the quote where someone said that all MX apps have 64-bit versions sitting around in repos not being used. This hybrid seems to detect the 64-bit Kernel and install 64-bit apps from synaptic where available, so I'm thinkin' it's pretty close to a true 64-bit OS. Yes, you can look ...

Re: Flexible Task Manager

First I will make some corrections to your previous post, being as you are using KDE 4.7.4. and forget about Icon Task Manager or Task Manager, you can set up the following, ungroup the icons, and change from row-major order instead of the column-major order, and have windows with their own represe...

Re: Flexible Task Manager

Which task manager is better is of course subjective.... Rich, you are quite correct. Icon Task works better for you, Flexible Task works better for me. One of the great things about Linux, choices;) Subjective it is not, Flexible Task is a hack which is why it was rejected by KDE, so that KDE4 doe...

Re: Flexible Task Manager

Well, that happens to work with my setup;) The first thing I notice is that Icon Task Manager is just that, it only shows the icons, without any text. It does have a popup as soon as you hover over the icon that does have the text of the corresponding windows. It does have more options available, bu...

Re: Flexible Task Manager

Flexible Tasks and Icon Tasks are two separate plasmoids. As for which one is better, I can't say. I ran into some dependency issues while trying to compile Icon Tasks that I didn't take the time to resolve, so didn't have the opportunity to compare them. The initial patch that I applied to Flexibl...

That would be sweet!
I wish I could share like you do, but alas, I don't have the skills or time.

Let me know if you want my updated files. I can at least do that.

Flexible Task Manager

Ever since upgrading my M11 install to 4.6.5 last fall I've been a bit frustrated with the Task Manager ordering the programs row-major order instead of the previous column-major order, which I prefer. (as explained here ) Well, I finally found some time to do some research into the matter, just to ...
