Re: Renaming files in directory A with filenames in directory B

XFCE's Bulk Renamer can easily achieve this. There are probably more tools, but as XFCE user, this is the one quickly coming to my mind: https://docs.xfce.org/xfce/thunar/4.10/ ... amer/start

Re: Forum Home page

I see that the forum home page forums.debian.net has a different look to the home page. I like it. well i was discovering it myself. on mobile it defaults to "flat style"... nice greyish with a touch of orange. but now I browse the forum on my laptop and it has the old style again. i woul...

Re: Forum and server updates - Moving, fixes, and new admins.

Finally some love injected in our good ol' forum :mrgreen: I like the new flat board style being mainly grey'ish with a slight touch of color. It would be perfection if orange would be replaced by pink to be close to our Debian logo 8) And if possible, reducing the default font size a little bit of ...

Re: What does your desktop look like?

I tried out a new Stretch install with the Xfce desktop on a now 12 year old laptop that took me through college back in the day just to amuse myself during the lockdown here in Ireland.
