Window Managers

#1 Post by JLS727 » Sun Jun 17, 2018 8:40 pm

I just noticed that MX Tools Windows Managers only contains Compiz and IceWM. Have the others been eliminated from MX Tools now? I did not remove them.

Would you mind to explore your question a bit?
I do have neither compiz nore icewm with MX Linux,
and I have not deleted any of them.

There is a new Desktop Environments category. Nothing has been removed just rearranged.

I love the improvements constantly being added to MX. However, it would be helpful if changes like this could be communicated to the community in some fashion when they are done. I'm not the smartest guy around and this change was not obvious to me, even if it should have been.

It doesn't happen without a screenshot :happy:

I can't see any Desktop Environment listing in the main application menu or MX Tools so am feeling confused thus far.

here you go...

It's actually in the Package Installer.
The rest is in the section Window Managers. They just made a logical correction. :)
