Re: Greybird-Solydx/Desktop Icon Label Text Color

....I typically set a light and dark theming with different wallpapers for day and night, but in the end I hardly ever switch them, lazy guy. Aargh, Me too, especially where theming is concerned. Whenever I get involved with theming I'm likely to spend a week fooling with it... I found the setting,...

Re: Greybird-Solydx/Desktop Icon Label Text Color

Thanks Snap, that should send me off sniffing in the right direction for a change! 8-) :) Yeah, I guess I got to like the black background back in the Crunchbang days. I was sorry to see the development come to a halt. Apparently the forum will live on, and I bet there will be a lot of #!die-hards! ...

Greybird-Solydx/Desktop Icon Label Text Color

I use a black desktop background. So: Back in the Oxygen days, I used the following .gtkrc-xfce to achieve a light color for the desktop icon label text: style "xfdesktop-icon-view" { XfdesktopIconView::label-alpha = 0 fg[NORMAL] = "#AAAAAA" fg[SELECTED] = "#000000" fg[ACTIVE] = "#000000" } widget_c...

Re: Sleep assist?

Next choice, klonopin That's where I wound up when the Ambien stopped working. I take it to this day, but only once in a while. It knocks me out. The Ambien only helped for a little while, but very quickly became useless. A friend of mine also swears by Benadryl. I tried it too. It does work like a...

Re: Sleep assist?

Back when I retired, would have been '06 -'07 (retiring was a long process) I was on those things for a couple of years. They tried a bunch of them on me, Paxil, Prozac, Effexor, couple others. None of them worked. I kept telling them I didn't need them, but these days doctors seem to believe that e...

... the troll picture is from the Dutch artist Rien Poortvliet who became well known by his drawings of goblins, trolls and alike in the '70 and '80.

Re: A new team member!

I do a lot of tinkering within virtual machines. For me it's the multi-boot thing instead of VMs, which I never got into, just never got around to it I guess. I want to get another 4gig of memory for this beast... There are twenty partitions on this main system/testing machine, Testing, Sid, Produc...

Re: Nightly builds

I've been using a frugal install of Parted Magic for those emergencies for a long time.

This is much better, as Solyd is always my go-to OS. Thank you for this Schoelje! 8-)

Ah, I thought it might be along those lines. Thanks kurotsugi. I didn't know anything about this; Rocky laid a new one on me... :) It's been quite some time since I checked in over there.

Re: LMDE wont use systemd until v3 ?

LMDE 2 “Betsy” will be using the traditional sysvinit. The move to systemd could happen with Linux Mint 18 and LMDE 3, giving this new technology and the Linux ecosystem 2 years (or more) to mature and to iron out integration and compatibility issues. Well. Their systemd decision reflects my own de...

Re: No search engines in firefox

I could be missing something here, because I always use firefox-esr and not the new ones. But. One of the things I do when configuring Firefox in a new install is to remove firefox-solydxk-adjustments, because I have no need for the included add-ons. Unfortunately this also removes search engines. :...
