Re: Dark theme tweak [solved]

actually, the current gtk/xfce theme has nothing to do with the Firefox Dark Theme Tweak. All the FDTT does is force adwaita onto firefox regardless of the system theme chosen. This can actually be done at anytime, although it makes the most sense with dark gtk themes that don't display text boxes c...

Re: MX-17.1 download page: Proposal for clarifying download ways (making the user journey easier)

FYI...what you may not realize about that green button on sourceforge is that it is site wide, not page specific. so no matter how we *might* change links, the green button is wrong somewhere. It also only points to the 64 bit release. and as far as I can tell, there is no way to NOT have a green "l...

Re: Dark theme tweak

Would running ff from the terminal have changed anything? The reason I ask is I've just rebooted and ran ff from the whisker menu again, and the dark tweak is now working. Previously it didn't. Whatever has happened, it seems the problem is now solved. :confused: it shouldn't have changed anything....

Re: Dark theme tweak

well I'm stumped for now. it works from the terminal and the exec line in the desktop file looks correct. the only thing I can think of now is that maybe you have more than one firefox entry in the menu, with /usr/bin/firefox perhaps used instead of just "firefox" , but I wouldn't think so. running ...

Re: Dark theme tweak

I thought I set up our Firefox mozillabinaries package builds to create a /usr/bin/firefox symlink to /opt/firefox/firefox, and have them conflict with firefox-esr because of that shared file. Is that still the case? when you install firefox from debian, it adds the firefox.real diversion. I though...

with the tweak enabled, launch "firefox" from the terminal, and post any output.
I'm afraid the terminal is foreign to me.

I've had a look in the window manager and I can't see it.

Re: Dark theme tweak

I'm launching it from the whisker menu. with the tweak enabled, launch "firefox" from the terminal, and post any output. also, is adwaita themes present? this is the entire tweak script (firefox.real is there to help deal with firefox-esr when installed via debian repos). #!/bin/bash if [ -a /home/...

Re: Dark theme tweak

are you just launching firefox from the menu? or do you have any custom launchers?

the tweak is designed to be used with "firefox" as the launch screen. or /usr/local/bin/firefox. /usr/bin/firefox will bypass the tweak.

our desktop files use "firefox" as the exec.
