Re: xfce4-weather background color

usually that happens when you mix a gtk3 plugin with the gtk2 panel. I don't know if that's the case here, as I don't know what the weather plugin uses.

Re: Reposition Individual Windows Buttons in Panel

It looks like the "windows buttons" in the panel are meant to be moved by drag and drop. A hand and folder icon appears, but they always bounce back to their original positions. Can someone please tell me how this is supposed to work? I have the panel on the the bottom of the screen with a separato...

Re: Does MX MBR repair erase GRUB?

Re: Who runs MX from USB and why?

I may be thick but I have yet to hear why as I really don't see a USB system will be faster/better than an installed system.
