Re: MX-17/18 - How to fix KDE from MXPI - a work in progress

I don't think we ever actually packaged the /etc/X11/Xsession.d/98qtconfig file. desktop-defaults-xfce-mx17 actually removes it if its found to match the default file we were working with at the time. the new file is here: https://github.com/MX-Linux/desktop-defaults-xfce-mx17/blob/master/56xfce4-q...

Re: MX-17/18 - How to fix KDE from MXPI - it's easy

export QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=gtk2 export QT_PLATFORMTHEME=gtk2 export QT_PLATFORM_PLUGIN=gtk2 Is that what the 98qtconfig file is supposed to look like? I think it looked like that before I changed it. I have no idea how to theme gtk apps in KDE. KDE has a GTK module in Settings that themes GTK 2 an...

Re: MX-17/18 - How to fix KDE from MXPI - it's easy

desktop-defaults-xfce-mx17 The script you posted is supposed to be in 56xfce4-qtconfig. I have that one, but I recently updated desktop-defaults-xfce-mx17 and didn't think it would matter because I was looking for 98qtconfig I will run with default config files and see how that goes. But it's also ...

Re: MX-17/18 - How to fix KDE from MXPI - it's easy

No, both times theming completely broken (fully up to date with MX repo). Unfortunately I just checked Xfce and the solution I posted does seem to affect Xfce (fonts and theming slightly). I always said don't mix KDE with other desktops. I think I stick to that statement. (If you don't theme KDE an...

MX-17/18 - How to fix KDE from MXPI - a work in progress

IT'S NOT AS EASY AS I THOUGHT. READ WHOLE THREAD BEFORE DOING ANYTHING! I installed it on two different occasions. Theming was broken both times. What's wrong? Missing recommended packages? No, I found the answer on the forum. You need to modify /etc/X11/Xsession.d/98qtconfig so that KDE isn't affec...

Re: Audio volume control issue in MX

And those actually suffering from hearing loss are happy with the feature ;) In most countries it isn't allowed to drive a car without a seat belt, but some people think it's easier to drive without. And it actually is because the seat belt does nothing for usability. It's a safety feature. Your ma...

Re: Audio volume control issue in MX

Question: Can we have this by default? I see no use in using flat-volumes.... it prevents users from using louder volume than the machine can actually handle (beyond 100% thingies) and to raise awareness to hearing health issues , it's a second hand knowledge from forum-veteran on manjaro forum If ...

Re: MX-17.1/MX-18.1: Replacing PulseAudio by ALSA's sound server – implications?

In this case: not yet – currently you cannot remove the pulseaudio package without loosing mx-apps and mx-system-sounds . Tested on MX-17.1. Greetings, Joe mx-system-sounds has a dependency on libcanberra-pulse. libcanberra-pulse has a dependency on pulseaudio. Consider the other back-end: mx-syste...

Re: MX-17.1/MX-18.1: Replacing PulseAudio by ALSA's sound server – implications?

If I dislike PulseAudio - it's because I have suffered for ten years - driving me to Windows 7 in the process. If I had been a smarter guy maybe I would have figured out how to use Ubuntu without PulseAudio, but it was much trickier than MX Linux. Therein lies the greatness of MX Linux. MX Linux can...
