Re: Mighty mouse, cannot drag & drop

I actually have no idea what an Apple anything might or might not do... HOWEVER you really should 'consider' posting your configuration settings per site requirements when asking for help. Those will help get you some assistance. https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php?p=255062#p255062 ---and-- http...

Re: Terminal Emulator Choices

There are bunches of keybindings for kitty (standard with the terminal). If you use rofi, I can give them to you in a manner that will work in a popup on your desktop. If not here they are in the docs...

Re: Battery icon has shrunk...

If you haven't already done so, you might try a different icon theme. Adwaita is a good bet (it's pretty standard). Another thing I encountered once was that changing the xfce-panel from auto-hide to always hide, made an improvement on icon size. Yet another bizarre thing that sometimes works, is to...

Re: Ubuntu-designed packages

If you are exceptionally eager for what they offer, flatpaks work. So do appimages. Snaps require systemd and for some of us that's a problem. Having said that, if the *buntu applications are critical, why not just use a *buntu base distro? I'm just curious... :bagoverhead:
