Re: Can we get a "NEWBIE" section

There is an easy way to do that easily as an Announcement. It would be at the very top of the post list not as banner but as a post. It will be considered.

Re: Can we get a "NEWBIE" section

@BitJam, I am not sure how easy it it to do either. That is a question for Peregrine who would have to get into the Forum code.. You could PM or email her. I am not opposed to either. Please copy Jerry and me in on the communication.

Re: xfce4-weather background color

That will work too for the weather plugin. I do not use that because it does not work for some icons., Dropbox, copyQ, HP Status and maybe others. However the three I mentioned are not on the panel by default. If you do not use those applications, not an issue for you.

Re: xfce4-weather background color

I have the panel set as transparent by setting the alpha channel to 0. The panel then takes the wallpaper background and the weather addon follows it. Right click the panel, then then Panel, the Panel preferences then Appearance tab. Slide the alpha slider to 0. A compositor must be enabled either t...

Re: Can we get a "NEWBIE" section

I would prefer not to do that. It has no specificity to the problem being asked. Secondly having a name on the forum will not prevent solutions "way over" a users head. If one does not understand a solution they should ask for clarity.

Re: Cool computer and a pretty good day

Dive in Eadwine when you are ready. Snapshotting is painless. And nice to have an updated system on a stick should your system become unusable. Saved me at least three times. With your system it would run splendidly.
