Greybird-thick-grip & Greybird-thin-grip themes GTK3 problems

Users reported problems with Greybird-thick-grip & Greybird-thin-grip themes when using GTK3-based applications. Prolblem was solved by backporting sources from the Debian Stretch version of murrine themes (murrine-themes_0.98.10_all), specifically the greybird theme, and integrating with our own window border changes. All changes have been pushed to GitHub at anticapitalista/mx-greybird-themes.and the updated themes were distributed via the MX repo.

gdevilspie is a neat little GTK+ app that serves as a frontend (GUI) for devilspie2 that makes all sorts of detailed manipulations on windows very easy.

HELP: MX Repo Manager


This tool greatly simplifies the process of changing the package repositories  that are use for updating/upgrading and installation. For a general background on repositories, consult Section 5.2 of the relevant Users Manual.

The sources are set during installation depending on the selected timezone and language, and will generally work well. But there are many instances where a user might wish to change those selections.
