Discovered doxbarx with XFCE plugin in the repository. Mac OS Sierra Wallpaper set, Yosa Max icon set with default Graybird theme, and Polo File Manager.

Re: Thunderbird 68.0 warning

I found this discussion: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1542025 Looks like you can try creating a shortcut (launcher) with a '-p' switch or editing ~./thunderbird/profiles.ini to point to your existing profile folder.

Re: Upgrade to Buster Debian 10 Broke Login GUI

@JayM et al., you guys nailed it. Along the way, I must have seen an application I wanted/needed and debian stable repository is listed within the MX Repo Manager and my inxi -r output.

My system is restored from a backup. One question though, since I'm relatively new to MX Linux, when will they incorporate a Debian ...

[SOLVED] Upgrade to Buster Debian 10 Broke Login GUI
