Re: pkexec tuxcmd: creating policy rule

I tried double commander. It is a very nice file commander that does work very good.
But on my older laptops double commander needed some time to start. And tuxcmd starts immediately
so on these older laptops I prefer tuxcmd.

Re: LXDE: change color of volume icon on panel

Yes, that link is definitely the same question.
I tried pasystray but it uses the same icon. I think the icon is part of the theme.
I have changed the background of the panel to make the icon visible. That works so there is no problem in using it. So I let it be.

Re: editing sudoers file but I am doing something wrong

Thanks Peter, I did not know that I had to use TABs. But unfortunately that was not enough solve my problem. Meanwhile I found the cause of the problem: the special character : with the escape key.

Re: LXDE: change color of volume icon on panel

greg9, thank you for your reaction.
At this moment I changed the background of the panel. So the volume icon is now visible. But I would like to change the icon itself.
I will try your theming link.

Re: pkexec tuxcmd: creating policy rule

I like tuxcmd more the doublecmd so I made an alias in ~/bashrc:

Code: Select all

alias pexec="pkexec env DISPLAY=$DISPLAY XAUTHORITY=$XAUTHORITY"
now:
"pkexec tuxcmd" does not work but
"pexec tuxcmd" does work!!

Re: pkexec tuxcmd: creating policy rule

I know that double commander works with pkexec. I have used doublecmd a few years back in its early days. Then I had had a bad experience. I copied my home directory with doublecmd to a external drive as a backup. When I needed this backup I discovered that doublecmd had created sub directories but ...

LXDE: change color of volume icon on panel

debian 11, lxde The volume icon on the panel is black. It is hard to see because the panel itself is also dark. In the file ~/.config/lxpanel/LXDE/panels/panel I can find the volume plugin. I tried to add the line "image//usr/share/lxpanel/images/volume.png" to this plugin but that did not...

Re: wifi 5g no longer visible after update

I have investigated further and now I think it is a certainly hardware problem. My router uses DFS to select he best available channel automatically. So the channel that is used can change after reboot. My wifi adapter (TL-WDN4800) is an older one. I think it does have problems with recognizing thes...

Re: gtk icons not visible after upgrade to bullseye [Solved]

In this case the config was definitely changed during the upgrade. (I compared it with a debian 10 install) There was a submap ~./.config/gtk-3.0/assets/ that contains .svg files. Normally I could see these icons in the listing of Dolphin but they were not visible.After deleting the map ~./.config/g...

Re: gtk icons not visible after upgrade to bullseye [Solved]

I removed the map ~/.config/gtk3
Then I went back to the settings and reselected my preferred settings:
Global Theme: Breeze
Plasma Style: Breeze Dark
Gnome/GTK Application Style: Default
Now it is working again. I think something went wrong during the upgrade
