MX Tweak > Other > Disable shortening of long filenames on the desktop
didn’t work for me

MX Cleanup items:
Folders to Clean
Clear APT Cache
Delete Logs
Empty Trash

Right now it’s clean 4 items or 0 items. I think a checkbox in front of each item would be a good addition so you can clean your system selectively.

Funny, I just tried the longer file name for the very first time. It did show, but split the word after 5 characters, with the remainder on a line below. Haven't had time to look around to get everything on one line yet.
Production: 4.15.0-1-amd64, MX-17.1, AMD FX-4130 Quad-Core, GeForce GT 630/PCIe/SSE2, 8 GB, Kingston SSD 120 GB and WesternDigital 1TB
Testing: AAO 722: 4.15.0-1-386. MX-17.1, AMD C-60 APU, 4 GB

That bit of gtk override code doesn't work on all displays. I don't know themeing well enough to tell why.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

No big deal. I renamed "Google Chr..." to "Chrome". Looks nicer.

Since that setting is a "gtk override" it might depend on the theme in use.
