Re: Easy change between light and dark themes

Re plymouth. i agree it should not be in this "wrapped" app. A better place would be in mX Tweak and we could develop our own graphics around an MX background. I have plymouth implemented with such a background and a progress bar.

Re: MX(LX)Qt ??

@rover, Your image links do not work, Imgur links do work. I use linked bbcode from their site by copying it directly from the side panel that shows with your image page.

Re: What is your preferred way to manage Android device on MX?

Re: Compiz settings ineffective

I am now in territory I have little knowledge of. I searched the net on the error but did not decipher a solution.

Re: Compiz settings ineffective

You mean other settings not associated with the brightness, saturation or opacity? that's right. none of it is functional. That is quite different than trying to solve an individual setting issue.
