Re: [STICKY] Share your desktops of ArcoLinuxB Xfce

Hi Eric,
A few weeks ago, I looked at all the icon options and everything looked right.
After I decided on Surfn Mint X Grey, I deleted several of the icon families and kept only a few if they had dependencies or were fallback options. -v

Re: [STICKY] Share your desktops of ArcoLinuxB Xfce

A simple and clean dual 4K monitor setup. XFCE is able to handle dual screen wallpapers. Until I discovered ArcoLinux by accident, I always stuck to KDE distros. Now, XFCE is my number one. As far as setups go, it's the best I've ever had.

Re: [SOLVED] Plasma boots without Menu/start button

Interesting! The other day when Timeshift wasn't behaving I thought to give good old Plasma another try. Since then, the issue has become manageable and XFCE is here to stay unless the Wacom tablet acts up (fingers crossed). I found hblock trough that video and just added it to both machines. NICE! :)

Re: [OPEN] Timeshift is not creating automated backups. Cron?

UPDATE! I just created a "daily" snapshot via command line. sudo timeshift --check Amazingly, that created a backup with the long desired "D" in the tags category. This solves the space issue as the daily backups will hopefully overwrite themselves after the set quantity of two is reached. If no bet...

[SOLVED] Plasma boots without Menu/start button

I checked out Plasma but the live-boot didn't show a start button in the panel. There are icons on the right side but nothing on the left the work spaces.

This is the second download (created new USB stick) and boot. What am I missing?

Re: [OPEN] Timeshift is not creating automated backups. Cron?

If anyone is using Timeshift and got the automated daily backups working PLEASE let me know how you achieved this. The image shows conflicting messages. First, "snapshots are "NOT" scheduled at fixed times. And at the bottom/footer: Scheduled snapshots are enabled. I have used the same path (ext 320...

Re: [OPEN] Timeshift is not creating automated backups. Cron?

I updated Timeshift as per the video posted which shows how to download the package from the master server.
The upgrade to version 19.1? was done over 24 hours ago but no automated/scheduled updates are being created.

Everything else works really well.

Re: [SOLVED] xsetwacom > Unable to find an output 'DP-2

This is no longer an issue and the tablet works as expected.
The fix was easy. Instead of DP-2, I used HEAD-0.

The full command is:
xsetwacom --set "device name as per list" MapToOutput HEAD-0

Remember that "xrandr" and "xsetwacom --list" are key to success. - v

[SOLVED] xsetwacom > Unable to find an output 'DP-2

I am trying to configure my Wacom tablet to use the second/right of two 4k monitors. xrandr sees them as: DP-2 connected 3840x2160+3840+0 DP-4 connected 3840x2160+0+0 xsetwacom set "Wacom Intuos Pro L Pad pad" MapToOutput DP-4 generates this error msg: Unable to find an output 'DP-4' If anyone happe...

[OPEN] Timeshift is not creating automated backups. Cron?

Hi, I installed ArcoLinux from the ISO and one of the first things I did when I had everything set up was to "Create" a backup. I then set it so that I would get 3 daily backups but so far, Timeshift is not creating those. We all use the same system and updates and I am surprised that no one has bro...
