Re: WPS Office

I liked WPS, but I need macro support so I decided to stick with LO. WPS also has a TOC that seems to limit the free Linux edition to domestic (ie, China) hardware and software: (3)If this Software is a WPS Office version for Linux OS, the following apply: 1) You are only entitled to install and use...

Re: MX 17/18 Repository: The ClipGrab Thread

My first download with it seemed very slow, but maybe that was an anomaly. Evidently the slow download was an anomaly. Just did a sizable download and the speed was fine. I'm going to start using this instead of youtube-dl. Easier to use and does the job nicely. I voted that they should add the abi...

Re: MX 17/18 Repository: The ClipGrab Thread

Thanks. This is quite good. Just had a friend ask me about videos and I recommended it. My first download with it seemed very slow, but maybe that was an anomaly.

Re: samba 2

Not a direct answer, but you can activate smb 1 in Windows.

Re: Thunar: same-directory right-click actions

I would agree that Thuar's Detailed View could use more white space, additionally for the purpose of using grid selection.

What gtk theme are you using?
I was using a Greybird-mx17 I had lightly modified, but I just switched to stock Greybird-mx17, with no difference in either Geany or LO.

Re: Scrollbar problem in LibreOffice 6.2.0.3

A ha. Geany is doing it too. I'm almost sure that is new. Maybe it is an MX thing. Featherpad doesn't do it.

Re: Scrollbar problem in LibreOffice 6.2.0.3

@Paul, Yes, same scroll behavior on 64bit. Actually, I miss the pop-up page numbers while scrolling. The click behavior is ok for me. I usually just use the mouse wheel. Ok, thanks for the confirmation. Someone on reddit pointed out that right-clicking the scrollbar works the normal way. I'd like t...

Re: Scrollbar problem in LibreOffice 6.2.0.3

Where did you install this version of LO from? From a torrent, with the hash checked. I got mine from LibreOffice download page. It also used to show page numbers when moving the scrollbar. Imagine that some features got removed in the rewriting. Time to visit the LibO Bug Tracker to see if it is p...

Scrollbar problem in LibreOffice 6.2.0.3

I installed the latest LibreOffice manually, after uninstalling the previous version, as is my standard practice. But this time a problem arose. When clicking in the vertical scrollbar, the shuttle advances to the point of the click rather than by one screen. This would be a handly Shift-click behav...
