Re: Why XFCE?

Sorry, just one more thing about Xfce: on Mousepad I always go to edit > preferences and change the Color Scheme to Cobalt.
Nice and dark plus you get the colors on executable files.

Ok, that's it; I know I've repeated myself a few times, so I shall post no more...

Re: Why XFCE?

Rhythmbox? What's that? :hamster: Oh yeah I used to use that but, it's been a long, long time. Why not simply use Audacious instead? It works great with Conkywx plus what else has a Winamp Classic UI? Xfce is the same across distros, you have Thunar, Mousepad, xfce-terminal, etc. They basically are ...

Re: Change Grub2 background

Since "MX Linux is a cooperative venture between the antiX and former MEPIS communities..." I installed Antix 17.4.1 over the last couple of days. I customized the grub screen on Antix with a picture of a narrow European street as the background and the colors the same as above. If your system is De...

Re: PIA doesn't support MX Linux (SOLVED)

I'm glad I found that on my own - the package in MX Package Installer. Because I got that error about Systemd also upon trying to install their version. I've tried many distros and they do vary if I can just install the app or if I have to use scripts, aliases in terminal. On Arch Linux it installs ...

Re: Why XFCE?

It would be useful to explore the MX Tools. They are designed to make things easier for XFCE and the system in general. They are frequently praised by reviewers fir this reason. I understand that when one is very familiar with a system and have done things a certain way that is the go to method. In...

Re: Why XFCE?

This thread is convoluted enough that it hurts my old brain... :bagoverhead: :eek: I don't think I can help. Sorry. :bawling: I know what you mean but, everything I've mentioned is about systems with Xfce, so I may have strayed a tad, I still kept it on Xfce. As a matter of fact, Xfce is the reason...

Re: Why XFCE?

II you use MX Tweak, Display panel horizontally and choose top the orientation of the icons will be as you prefer. As far as where the panel should be, MX chooses to put the panel on the left edge. Who is to say it should not be there. It was the choice of the developers and is easily changed with ...

Re: Why XFCE?

"on the top where they should be" -- in MX the single panel is on the left edge by default. Did you move it? If yes, how? Sorry, I didn't notice your question! I believe I right clicked on it and then clicked on horizontal. If it didn't automatically go to the top, I hold the left mouse button down...

Re: Why XFCE?

[...] I booted into MX and the panels were missing, I clicked on the top where they should be and they appeared. I've seen this so many times on so many different systems, it's not worth the effort to fix it. [...] Please explain why you believe "where they should be" is "on the top". Did you (like...

Re: Why XFCE?

The top and bottom panels do not appear most of the time during initial boot up whether I've booted systemd or not. I clicked on the top and then both panels appeared and everything was normal after that. It did when I booted just now using systemd. But, since most Linux disros are using systemd as...
