First quick look: very nice!

Some minor items that caught my eye:
1) Live boot screen: "Press F1 for Help" is not localized, and the use of that font (which I like very much) looks very muddy. Maybe instead: "F1 = Help" (understood by almost everybody?)
2) the login box looks much better with the face enabled, as we have noted during earlier testing: line 11 in /etc/lightdm/mx17/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf has to read

Code: Select all

hide-user-image=false
3) the default for png images is feh, though nomacs is installed. Don't have jpg to test but suspect it is the same.

The "Press F1 for Help" can't be localized because its part of the graphic. That's the same text as antiX uses, but we can do whatever.

as for the font...I'm got someone looking at the bootloader graphic but I really wanted to get this b3 out of the way. FWIW, thats a 1024x768 graphic and its stretches to whatever you have.

So open to suggestions on font and such.

3. I probably forgot to update the mimelist. We have that stuff hardcoded, and it probably still points to gthumb, so feh gets used as a default. same thing happened with leafpad_to_featherpad.

thanks zeb!

everyone has been working real hard on it. Not to mention all the work gone into populating our repos with stretch packages! I think I saw kdenlive 17 in the test repo.

and translations keep coming in!

iPhone Mounter works again, though the dialog box stays on top of Thunar instead of disappearing (we know this already, just logging it).

Out of curiosity, did you start with thunar already running, or did you allow the iDevice-mounter tool to launch it?
