    You’ve got some ‘wildering’ icons in Start Menu.

    Hello guys!
    Why I wasn’t my post from tonight published? I posted:
    I booted the ISO from disk with Grub on an AMD Jaguar machine.
    I took the time to click every application in the menu and in CC.
    * In the menu Internet -> Wicd settings don’t start. Since Wicd is gone it should be removed, shouldn’t it?
    * In CC -> Hardware -> Alsamixer Equalizer opens a terminal window which close after a short moment. The application starts fine from the main menu.
    I didn’t check all the themes and settings, but all wm sessions work.
    Regards

    Icon theme chosen, can also affect the applications.
    Rox is a ‘special case’, one way or the other.
    (Size and style are wrong now.)

    There’s icon shape but, also the size to consider.

    Firejail and Firetools icons and a couple of other files for those who want to try it.
    The yellow wallpaper is the default Windows 8.1 wallpaper (–> Bing, Google …).

    skidoo – the icon set is awful on fluxbox, I agree.
    fluxbox must use png icons (or none) and there aren’t any ‘modern’ ones available.
    If anyone has a better suggestion, please post (with a picture if possible)
    (Faenza instead of Numix!)

    I used to have Square-Beam icons on Fluxbox, JWM and Openbox. I used them exactly because they have many sizes in PNG format. This is good for fluxbox and saves a bit of RAM (about 10MB IIRC).

    eugen-b was quicker then me … couldn’t write all my posts and all I wanted to show you on time. 😉

    Here is the explanation for the ‘Fluxbox Numix-Bevel Issue’:

    (Watch VERY carefully at 1:1, ROUND vs. SQUARE icons / please ignore the missing icons; don’t like to
    spend my time on what’s not worth it — ‘Speaker Test’ is … OCTAGONAL!!!)

    * Square Beam look is very s…pecial; if that’s better than Faenza …
    Both are category ‘oldfashioned’ (shaded === antimodernX).

    ** I’ve said “not worth my time but, still did it”. 🙁 🙁 🙁
    That’s what Papirus gives — more or less. The only viable .png option if ‘modern’.

    Installation went well, I like the new installer and the new connman
    firefox is not in the repo and therefore not installable through package-installer.
    There are problems to install nvidia-lagacy-driver 340 from debian, but it’s maybe to early for this

    part of ddm-mx

    Starting NVIDIA Persistence Daemon
    nvidia-persistenced failed to initialize. Check syslog for more details.
    invoke-rc.d: initscript nvidia-persistenced, action "start" failed.
    dpkg: Fehler beim Bearbeiten des Paketes nvidia-persistenced (--configure):
     »installiertes nvidia-persistenced-Skript des Paketes post-installation«-Unterprozess gab den Fehlerwert 1 zurück
    

    Still I see a problem with the repo-manager from buster together with synaptic.
    If I change the repos with synaptic ,
    and afterwards use repo-manager to change the mirror
    repo-manager will produce a line where one time the word buster is missing,like
    deb http://repo.antixlinux.com/ buster main nosystemd nonfree

    instead of
    deb http://repo.antixlinux.com/buster/ buster main nosystemd nonfree

    The only workaround I could find is installing software-properties-gtk.

    @ anticapitalista

    The installer closes properly, at the end of installation, now, in antiX 19.

    I have a script that converts all SVG files to PNG files. The convert command is from imagemagick

    #!/bin/bash
    for i in *.svg
    do 
    	convert -background none $i -resize 24 -quality 100% <code>echo $i | sed -e s/svg$/png/</code>
    done

    But I doubt you want to convert a whole icon theme with several folders and maintain it.

    It was my first thought too but, not really worth the effort. Paper is very similar style to Papirus (most popular in a moment), a couple of folders could easily be recolored manually … except one wants to get some other ‘exotic’ icon set which’ll be missing icons for this and that. There are very few almost complete icon sets around (Paper being not one of them).

    The main problem stays though — Fluxbox doesn’t like anything non-squared and antiX in general is ‘1997’ — uses small icons in Start Menu.

    No matter how good icon you have, it’ll show ‘suboptimal’.

    Generally, a good icon tells you what it is about (== needs clarity & details). In sizes used, the detail has to be reduced to absolute minimum.

    With other words, we get that gorgeous 4” Smartphone with 32” screen issue. 😉

    I think there is a problem with the nvidia-peristenced package in debian buster. It fails on systemd systems as well. complains of a missing kernel module.

    @noClue, your screenshots with Papirus look good. Papirus would also match the choice in MX.
    Anti wrote some time ago that he doesn’t want to increase the icon size, because the menu will not fit a netbook screen.
    Anyway Fluxbox isn’t the default WM, it would be nice to have clear icons there though. But the user is invited to customize it.

    More icon themes I like which have PNG icons:
    * Dalisha https://www.noobslab.com/2015/01/dalisha-icon-set-updated-works-in-all.html
    * EvoPop https://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/EvoPop?content=170199 https://github.com/solus-cold-storage/evopop-icon-theme
    * AwOken https://www.noobslab.com/2014/06/awoken-kawoken-icon-sets-are-available.html
    * NouveGnome Gray https://www.noobslab.com/2013/07/nouvegnome-color-and-gray-icon-sets-for.html

    I like the new look on icewm. (I also came across noClue’s invisible icons on the icewm toolbar 😉 — thanks, noClue, now I can fix it!)
    Ceni & Connman wouldn’t detect any wifi networks on first boot. On second boot, though, it worked fine,
    Otherwise, I haven’t noticed any challenges. I’m very excited about it.

    I also like the new installer. Clean looking and Time efficient.
    I like the default wallpaper choice.
    I like the new IceWM but see only one of my suggestions got adopted (theme).

    Laptop problems:
    Dell Precision M2400
    Device-2: Intel Ultimate N WiFi Link 5300 driver: iwlwifi

    No way to get WiFi running. Maybe I am doing something wrong…
    When I boot from USB I do F4 and select nowicd, install to hard drive, reboot.
    Then tried Ceni or Conman from Control Centre (Ceni runs but no longer works). Comnman allowed me to enable WiFi but didn’t have any option to connect.
    Then ran WPA Supplicant from Control Centre to select network and enter password, gets IP address, but something wrong
    I can see WiFi upload and download bytes and has IP address but can’t ping or browse.
