Re: kwin on xfce

You can also run other desktop environment's window managers in XFCE, such as GNOME 3's mutter and Cinnamon's muffin, along with MATE's, though I forget what it's called at the moment. Thanks, Stevo. First, let me acknowledge that these problems are trivial.-) They're just about how I'm used to wor...

Re: kwin on xfce

Yes, but as I said other packages need to be installed. Okay, I'll try installing KDE Standard and then selecting xfce at the login prompt. It will be Plasma desktop I believe. But then you will be in a full blown KDE. rather than XFCE with kwin as just one of available packages Of course if that i...

Re: kwin on xfce

It does not take over the desktop. At the login screen you can choose which DE to log into. If you log into XFCE you get XfCE unadulterated, if KDE you get KDE. And it's possible to select xfce and use kwin? Yes, but as I said other packages need to be installed. Okay, I'll try installing KDE Stand...

Re: kwin on xfce

I think it was back in MX 16 I installed Kwin and got it working with desktop effects and reliably. But I do not recall what in addition I had to add. These days I just install KDE Standard from MXPI and do not have to spend time finding what I missed. I never use KDE and in my normal XFCE it has l...

Re: kwin on xfce

I've got kwin working on MX-18 Is it everything working fine for you? I tried kwin few months ago and it didn't go that well; some apps like clementine and guvcview didn't work at all. I haven't removed it yet and is still around in my system but disabled. I thought it was working, other than what ...

kwin on xfce

I've got kwin working on MX-18 and now I want to know how to populate KDE System Settings without installing KDE. As it is, I can't manage desktop effects or window theming, etc since those functions are missing in the sparsely populated System Settings. Does anyone know if I can install individual ...

Re: MX-18 RC1 Feedback

Regarding the installer's new interface for the root/home/swap/boot partition settings, I suggest that the "none" option in the swap dropdown menu be changed to "none or use existing" . As I recall, this was the original description in the previous interface, so that users understood that they coul...

Re: Firefox keeps asking to be default btowser

I guess I'm not getting it. In my Settings / General it says "Firefox is not your default browser," but it never reminds me of that fact. I assumed it was because I don't have "Always check if Firefox is your default browser" checked. What am I missing?

Re: USB Headset

You're right, I didn't give much information. It's a new Sennheiser PC8 with a boom microphone. I've never used a headset through USB before and I know little about it, but when it's plugged in it shows up as an audio card. (I'm using KDE so I find it in the KDE System Settings) Further blundering h...
