HELP: MX System Sounds

MX System Sounds 



There are three main areas to MX System Sounds.

1. XFCE Event Sounds

These settings correspond to the EVENT SOUNDS settings found in the Appearance > Settings.  Either Appearance or MX System Sounds may be used to adjust these preferences.

2.  Session Sounds


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. In general, it is used by creating a new rule, describing what you want to manipulate and how it should act. Details can be found under Links, below.


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.

Users Manual -- translations

The Users Manual is produced by the MX Linux Community in American Standard English. It can be converted to another language using the Google Translate pull-down menu, which provides a basic translation which, though useful, is often difficult to understand.

Community members are working on correcting these machine translations (THANKS!), beginning with Sections 1 (Introduction) and 3 (Configuration). This page keeps track of the completed Sections by language.

HELP: MX Panel Orientation

This time-saving application works by starting with two panel arrangements:

  • Vertical (default)
  • Horizontal

The default vertical panel is configured in two locations in ~/.config/xfce4/: the panel/ folder and in the xfce4-panel.xml file inside the folder xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/. The default horizontal panel is stored in /usr/local/share/appdata/panels/horizontal/ using the same two locations.
