I created a persistent live USB via live-usb-maker (the live-usb-maker-gui said "device too small" no matter how I formatted and partitioned).

It boots fine with UEFI, toram, persistence work, but NetworkManager gives the same error. I even switched to another WiFi USB with a similar Ralink chip though, no luck. Is it possible to include ceni on the ISO?

Edit: I forgot to try what dolphin_oracle wrote:

dolphin_oracle wrote:what adrian said, plus...

networking will be broken. to fix, edit /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf and comment out the line that starts with "prepends" and ends with 127.0.0.1. then reboot or restart network-manager.


Edit2: No, that did not work for me, I edited dhcpclient.conf, rebooted - same issue.

What works necely is that my saved boot configuration (cheat codes) get a dedicated boot menu entry on a UEFI system - well done!

Note the blurred "LibreOffice" text when that menu item has focus (vs not) and the blur/graininess of the tooltip text.
The blur immediately disappeared when any other theme is selected (any, other than the 5 problematic themes I mentioned)

Thanks for posting the screenshots. That's exactly what I am seeing. To me blur is visible on Categories as well., it looks like fonts are 3-D.
I think fonts are bold with MX themes and that makes the effect stronger. Most other themes I tried don't have this font look.

there is a custom whisker definition in Greybird-mx17. If anyone knows more about hacking such things, take a look in /usr/share/themes/Greybird-mx17/apps (I think that's the path anyway) for whisker.rc and try your hand at modifying it.

Thanks!

Thanks for the tip.
Looks like changing engine(last section in file) text style to 0 and maybe text shading to 0.1 makes it looking great.

File location is /usr/share/themes/Greybird-mx17/gtk-2.0/apps/
I only changed two lines in engine section. Works for me, gets rid of that 3-D effect.

style "whisker"
{
xthickness = 1
ythickness = 1

bg[NORMAL] = "#2B3640"
# bg[NORMAL] = shade (0.35, @bg_color)
bg[ACTIVE] = shade (0.65, @bg_color)
bg[PRELIGHT] = shade (0.85, @selected_bg_color)
bg[SELECTED] = shade (0.65, @selected_bg_color)

fg[NORMAL] = shade (0.9, @base_color)
fg[PRELIGHT] = @base_color
fg[ACTIVE] = shade (0.9, @base_color)
fg[SELECTED] = shade (0.9, @base_color)

text[NORMAL] = @text_color # Color for menu-item radio/checks.
base[NORMAL] = @bg_color # Color for menu-item radio/checks background.
text[PRELIGHT] = @base_color
text[SELECTED] = @base_color
text[ACTIVE] = @fg_color
text[INSENSITIVE] = @text_color

engine "murrine" {
roundness = 0
glowstyle = 0
glazestyle = 0
textstyle = 0
text_shade = 0.1
}
}
widget "whiskermenu-window*" style "whisker"
