It would help if we could find the source package
I got this by converting the rpm, if it is worth anything.

I just loaded and viewed it on my GTK 3.24 version of XFCE4 on manjaro... it looks okay, if that makes a difference.
Thanks for checking. It looks unlikely we will be able to get it.

Re: XFCE Theme Manager

The page where Alt Linux got the 0.3.8 source, according to their sources, has been removed from xfce-look.org. :frown: bummer. I converted the rpm using alien to a deb and it completed, installed the deb, but cannot find the executable. It did put a folder in / with the source code. Have no idea i...

Re: XFCE Theme Manager

I consider the current form of MX in its Configuration Management section; has all the necessary tools to change the appearance of XFCE to suit the user, I have done so and I agree and without breaking the system. It appears to me from the definition that XFCE Theme Manager has more granular adjust...

Does it work with GTK+ 3.22? I remember looking at this some time ago, but can't remember what the result was.
Beats me.

Re: Snap/Snappy... Flatpak & the future?

Other than a 2 second thought about it philosophically, I hope the devs do not spend too many brain cells on a hypothetical snap/flatpack takeover. Certainly not at this time.

Re: Snap/Snappy... Flatpak & the future?

ManyRoads, although I've read "no, technically, flatpak does not require systemd" I've repeatedly worried that debian's implementation might, or soon will. Hey, can check easily enough. I did so just now, from an antiX17 system. Launch synaptic, click mark-for-installation flatpak, apply... ...its ...

Re: Snap/Snappy... Flatpak & the future?

Don't know about snaps but I stay away from flatpacks. They just bring in too many libraries. An option for flatpacks was added to MXPI for convenience. Our packagers are very good at re-packaging newer app versions for our repos. I prefer that model. Opinions will vary. More on snaps in MX. The pro...

I've been using Insync for Google Drive after dumping Dropbox about six months ago. No complaints.
I use insync as well without a problem along with Dropbox. I sync the two directories with FreeFileSync so have files backed up in two different places. Google Drive storage is very inexpensive,
