Re: MDM themes?

Apparently some require updating: viewtopic.php?f=25&t=126979&start=280#p775641
I guess it depends on the theme. None of the mdm 1.2.5 themes I've tried failed on 1.3.2.


Thank you
Evidently missed that one

Re: How to show mounted volumes on desktop

In Xfce if the partitions designated /anything (as oposed as only in fstab list) become part of the file system. You can make a link in Thunar (file manager) and put on desktop. The home (if seperate partition or not) can be shown on desktop using that tab. Other distro/partitions will show as long ...

That way I can use the TV/HDMI and turn off the monitor. And...

Not that it will help BUT... You may have created it by accident and it might be causing a conflict Many libs and file location of Xfce are not the same as mate so some configs from one to the other won't work, and/or will create a new config (because the other not found where shoud be) and you end ...
