The problem with documents is quite a few people don't do the reading, therefore the simplest things can be overlooked. As an example, I've seen numerous YouTube reviewers baffled when it comes to moving the panel from the left even though MX Tweaks makes this a simple job. Here's what happens when I see this
So how do you eliminate the need for a document, but give people the knowledge required to set up MX?
Create an MX Setup tool and have a link to it displayed on the MX welcome screen (it could replace MX Tweak). The tool itself would be a simple program that uses the terminal for display and user interaction.
Here's a very basic idea for what would be displayed in the terminal:
Code: Select all
MX Setup Set display configuration [*] Configure firewall [*] Set theme, panel position, button preferences, compositor, etc. [*] Set up Conky [*] Set wallpaper [*] Configure audio CD / DVD playback [*] etc, etc.
Pressing enter opens the selected tool, e.g.
Set display configuration opens the tool to configure screen settings.
Configure firewall opens the firewall tool
Set theme, panel position, button preferences, compositor, etc. opens MX Tweak
Set up Conky opens MX Conky
Set wallpaper opens desktop setup tool
Configure audio CD / DVD playback opens the tool which manages removable drives
The list can be as long and detailed as is required.
Mathinks this would enable someone who is brand new to Linux to fully configure MX in next to no time.
