Re: Open directory from Disks opens Devices & Locations instead of filemanager

Hi vansloneker, I had the exact same problem. This solved it for me. Open the "MIME Type Editor". Filter on "inode". You should now see an entry for inode/directory. Right clicking on it will open a window with a list of options. Choose the option "exo-open". You may ne...

Re: Change Desktop Font COLOR ?

Hi tovian, It depends which version of Xfce you have. For >= 4.14 then in your home folder in .config in the folder gtk-3.0 create the file "gtk.css". Here is a simple example to get you started: XfdesktopIconView.label { color: white; text-shadow: none; } Put that in the file "gtk.cs...

Re: XFCE "create archive" issue

Hi alivanos, thunar-archive-plugin uses xarchiver as it's back end. Xarchiver, in turn, uses things like p7zip and p7zip-full. Perhaps that is what's missing. I just found this thread which seems to describe your issue. There is also a bug report in the thread you can look at. Unfortunately it doesn...

Re: Thunar, file-roller, and xarchiver

Hi guinnessthecat,

If you don't need/use xarchiver why not simply uninstall it? The thunar-archive-plugin will work quite happily with file-roller.

Re: Is cinnamon-desktop supposed to install under xfce?

Hi Brody,

I also got that update. No, you don't need it. If you uninstall it then xviewer (Image Viewer) will also be uninstalled. I already had another image viewer installed so I just uninstalled cinnamon-desktop-data which took libcinnamon-desktop4 and xviewer with it.

Hope this helps. :wink:

Re: Change fonts for icons in the Desktop

Hi bich_30,

If you mean the text directly under an icon than this is it. Otherwise I don't know what you mean by "the font used in desktop icons".

Re: Any way to make Gnome windows use XFCE theme?

Hi Pheeble,

I can't speak to fonts, but for Calculator you may want to try mate-calc. It''s the same as the Gnome version. I tested it with the Wallis theme and it does use it.
I prefer to use the MATE version instead of the Gnome Version whenever possible. Hope this helps.

Re: After update to LM 19.3 icon font color wrong

Hi catweazle352, I believe I can help you part of the way. 19.3 is using Xfce 14.4 which is now GTK3 based. This means that .gtlrc2-0 is no longer used. You now use ./.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css for those changes. I use a simple one that contains this: XfdesktopIconView.label { color: black; text-shadow...

Hi lonely_llama,

It looks like you put the Separator all the way to the left side. It should be just to the left of the notification area.
So you get: everything else Separator notification area clock

Ubuntu 16.04, Linux Mint 18; can I still use upstart?

2 questions: Will Ubuntu continue to maintain upstart, given the switch to systemd? Can you switch out systemd for upstart after installing LM 18? I have been using systemd on Debian (tracking testing) for +/- 2 years and it is not the monster some claim it to be. Most of the objections I have read ...
