Re: Desktop Icon Text

Thanks. Copied from Mint and that seems to have done the trick!

Not, sure about Plank as research indicates that it is more a dock for open apps and possibly quicklaunch but not system tray? I wonder if DockbarX plugin for Xfce might be what I crave...

Re: Desktop Icon Text

Try this:- in gtkrc-2.0 in home folder
But as I said, whilst I know the required tweaks, there is no gtkrc-2.0 in the home folder in MX and am not sure that creating one would do the trick.
...dwonload plank...
I'll have a look!

Desktop Icon Text

Very happy with my MX16 setup but a couple of tweaks evade me. Is it possible to modify the desktop icon text to eliminate the "box"? In Mint one could edit gtkrc-2.0 and gtkrc-xfce which are hidden in the home folder. I feel that I have asked this before - perhaps as far back as MX14 - but can't tr...

Re: Creeping system failure since update.

On 23rd, reinstalled from snapshot created on 16th prior to updating. Immediately updated fresh install. Slight(?) differences between the experiences, mostly with gpg. On the first occasion (16th Nov) it was (apparently!) resolved by running Checkaptgpg from MX Tools. With this install that was not...

Re: Creeping system failure since update.

The smart report on the hdd is healthy. I don't have sufficient access for further forensics from within or without even as root.

In the circumstances I'll reinstall from pre-update snapshot, update again (having sorted gpg first) then see how it goes from there...

Re: Creeping system failure since update.

I am unable to copy and paste top output but taking notes the first 3 cpu hoggers accounting for ~70% message+ > dbusdaemon root > NetworkManager root > syslogd sudo apt-get install (given lack of wifi) produces /usr/bin/sudo must be owned by uid 0 and have the setuid bit set

Re: Creeping system failure since update.

Thanks for the responses.

I'll try your suggestions but lack of internet access means printing this page and hope that terminal launches (or can drop a level).

Creeping system failure since update.

On 17 Nov I updated for the first time since Feb. At the time, there were no apparent problems. However, since then - though I don't think immediately - selecting shutdown/restart would only drop me down to the login screen and even logging back in and trying again the same thing happened. Each time...

Windows Decorations in Xfce + Kwin.

As a (belated) follow up to https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php?f=100&t=41597&hilit=kwin, at the time I did as Stevo suggested #7 and that worked fine. Using Kwin as the window manager has worked perfectly without glitches to satisfy my cravings for desktop effects with acceptable decorations. B...
