Re: Swap File issue

Right I have got to the bottom of this issue and it turns out that the issue was a script I had running in the background that was the cause of the issue. Several month ago I spoke on here about a script that cleared down the memory cache and did a swapoff - swapon to clear the swap file as well. Th...

Re: Swap File issue

I normally have 7 tabs across two browser open at all times but during the day and can easily double that amount of open tabs and even edging into the high teens. Then I would start to find I was noticing the programs being offloaded to the swap file and a delay to reopen some tabs. I only moved the...

Folders then files in Thunar

This is based on SolydX-EE One thing that has annoyed me in recent version of XFCE is that when you use Thunar to browse files it would display files and folder mixed rather than the older style (and to me the more sensible way) of folders and then files. A while ago I found how to do get Thunar to ...

Re: Firefox 63: Save open tabs and quit option disapperead!

I can confirm the Save & Quit option is missing from my file menu on Firefox 63 (SolydX EE). What happens if you just simply close Firefox down by clicking the X in the top right corner of the window?? When I do that and then restart Firefox it opens with the same tab I had open previously open. In ...

You can set it up to log into your parents desktop, I did try in once, it was a faff but once it worked it seemed OK. I only u...

Re: Installing new theme

OK first my apology, the first theme I tried, when I looked closer it was not actually for xfce but rather Gnome Mate (duispite being on an XFCE page) so I have dumped that. I have now tried with another theme but that does not work either. It has lots of files as kurotsugi suggests, it is in a fold...

I have downloaded a new theme to try on my SolydX EE Instructions said to unpack it and put it in your .theme folder in your home directory, if you don't have that folder simply make it, so I did.
