The RealVNC (RVNC) app was not allowing resized desktops. This #MultiVNC app does and is displaying an #XFCE desktop geom of 1280x768. It does not do realtime desktop geo changes the same way most virtual machine displays do, and `xrandr` is not installed in the debian chroot container. It does, however, have a full screen mode.

::: XFCE | Kevyt Linux-työpöytä suuntaa kohti Waylandia 💫
Mitä landia? Wayland: moderni näytönhallinta joka esim. ERISTÄÄ syötteen / lähtevät asiat (kirjoituksesi, jne.) joka ikkunalle.
Tämähän lisää edelleen tietoturvaa.
Wayland tuo toimitukseen selkeää suoraviivaisuutta ja tehokkuutta kaikelle piirrolle näyttöön!
GNOME (Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian) ja Plasma (Steam Deck) työpöydissä Wayland jo onkin.
Drop-Down Terminal auch für XFCE
Einrichten eines Drop-down Terminals unter XFCE.
@Utzer beim #XFCE hatte ich immer ein Problem mit dem Power Management und z.B. Screen Locking. Da wurde an diversen Stellen für die unterschiedlichen Zustande (On Battery, AC, Powersave, Lid Close, Hibernate, Suspend …) Einstellungen gemacht, die sich teilweise widersprachen. Dann hing es noch davon ab, welches Screen Sver und Locking-Paket installiert war.
Kurz gesagt: wenn das einmal so lief, wie ich wollte, nie wieder anfassen!
@MonkderZweite Well, a window manager is for managing windows, right? So, having it also provide a list of windows to click on is resonable, in my opinion.
I should've added that I'm planning to run it on a Nokia N900 with 600 MHz and 256 MB RAM, both #XFCE and #LXDE are way too heavy for it. Also, most of their menus don't fit on the 800×480 pixel screen.
Seems my #Laptop Power Management settings in #XFCE in #Debian 12 are not really taken into account, it looks like it is running (power LED is on) but it does not continue with uploads to Nextcloud for example. I am not sure how to figure out if that is only a #Nextcloud issue.
I could run a cronjob every 5 minutes that writes the output of 'date' to some file by >>, that would then have a gap if the computer goes into sleep, right?
So I'm going to make myself comfortable with a terminal environment. Or rather: I will MAKE myself a terminal environment, because unfortunately there is no good preconfigured terminal "desktop" that just works. I'm going to have to edit a lot of config files...
I wish there was some kind of vintage desktop I could use like... I don't know, #KDE 1? Surely that worked with 256 MB of RAM back then. 🤔
[Preemptively Mute me, Block me, even invoke some 7th circle incantation.]
I like to explore OSs. Particularly *NIX-ish flavors. That curiosity brought me to Linux in the first place, starting with Slackware.
So I have spent the past couple of days introducing myself to ArchLinux and FreeBSD. Let me acknowledge the tenacity, independence, integrity and community of each group. Those qualities, apart from their respective OS, are worthy.
All that is said to try and deflect the barrage of "You fr&cking don't know what you are talking about!" slights and other more eloquent rips that will be forthcoming...
Both Arch and FreeBSD have managed to make Slackware easy and pleasant to get along with.
I have suggested this before and I stand by it now: Life is too short to spend it enduring the slings and arrows of such independent purists. Long ago I moved on from Slackware for everyday use. Nostalgia draws me back occasionally, to feel the thrill of discovery. But on the whole, I need an OS that just works. One that I don't need anesthesia to help me load, configure, tweak and accommodate.
Funny how large enterprise #Linux deployments spend time switching to a desktop environment which resembles classic Windows.
#Tuba updated to 0.5.0 on #Flatpak. It is my choice of #Mastodon (and #Pixelfed ) :linux: desktop client, for #GTK ( #GNOME / #Xfce etc).I have been a contributor to its translation into #Brazilian #Portuguese (pt_BR).
O aplicativo Tuba foi atualizado para 0.5.0 por Flakpak. É minha escolha de cliente desktop Mastodon (e Pixelfed) para GTK (GNOME/Xfce etc). Tenho ajudado a traduzi-lo para português brasileiro.
Its development is led by @GeopJr
I'm going to say that Mousepad is the best text editor ever! Why? because it because it doesn't try to be anything but a text editor and it understands consistency, unlike a certain Gnome orientated text editor that that seems bent on pulling the carpet out from under me at every new release. Now just to clarify when I say text editor I mean ''text editor' not IDE or Word processor. https://docs.xfce.org/apps/mousepad/start #mousepad #xfce #texteditor #minimalism
Estou achando o #Xfce mais interessante que o GNOME em vários aspectos, muito além do melhor aproveitamento de recursos. Vai ser meu ambiente padrão mesmo quando chegar o laptop novo do serviço.
Aliás, pelo que diziam, já era pra ter chegado, mas perguntei especificamente e acho que ainda não dá pra saber quando chega... enquanto isso, uso um Thinkpad T430 de 2011 ou 12.
O 💻️ pessoal também não fica muito atrás, HP Pavilion 14, mas pelo menos já tem SSD que instalei no lugar do DVD, e 8GB.
If I turn "Focus stealing prevention" to High so it does its job, #KDE doesn't let me use ulauncher without clicking on it first. All they had to do was not add focus theft to Linux but now I have to live with focus being stolen or completely change how I use my computer. 😹
If I ever get a break from school long enough to get tinkery again, I'm going to reinstall #xfce. It won't fix all the other Ubuntu 22 issues but it sure will fix the KDE issues.
If you're a Xfce user, and you happen to also be a Fedora user, may I suggest Lxqt as a possible alternative.
Fedora 40 (sometime next year) will be doing away with Xorg and going full Wayland.
Xfce has been slow... very slow... To develop for Wayland.
They're the last mainstream desktop shell that still does not have most of their Wayland issues resolved.
I am not saying they will never achieve it (it's been years now, though).
Xfce’s Path to Wayland Compatibility: A Slow but Steady March
Unfortunately, the recently updated Xfce roadmap doesn't give much hope that the desktop environment will soon be ready for Wayland.
I am leaning heavy into #termux for command line options and have gcc, rust, go, python, and java already installed.
TIme for some X11. While non-termux options exist, I didn't really look hard at them at this time since my first pass at this is definitely termux-centric.
So here is the #xfce desktop via termux to provide more GUI options in the coming days.
Bueno, pues al final tras pensarlo entre ayer y hoy, a última hora voy a cambiar #LinuxMint 20 Cinnamon por #LinuxMint 20.3 #XFCE en lugar de por #Zorin 16.3 Lite en mi portátil del 4 GB de RAM en un intento por hacer que algunos procesos no vayan tan lentos.
Cinnamon consume unos 750 MB de RAM al arranque, mientras que Zorin consume unos 550 y Mint con XFCE está entre 450 y 500 aprox.
Una vez hecho tendré que reinstalar todos los programas y demás, porque la actual instalación carecía de división en particiones, cosa que sí haré ahora.
Estaré algunas horas desaparecido. Empiezo ahora.
Otra opción si está acostumbrada a Windows, puede ser #Zorin, que es visualmente muy similar a Windows y de fácil uso (muy intuitivo). En su versón Lite para ordenadores de bajos recursos o antiguos consume 550 MB de RAM frente a los 750 MB del Cinnamon de #LinuxMint, debido a que esa versión Lite va con #XFCE.
De todos modos, como tienes 8 GB de RAM puedes probar la versión "normal" de #Zorin, en la que puedes elegir entre varios escritorios y consumirá más RAM, aunque no sé cuánta más.
#Zorin tiene una versión PRO que es de pago creo (esa no interesa), la "normal" y la Lite.
Aunque al descargar saldrá una opción de pago voluntario, basta con poner "0" € o saltarte esa ventana emergente (pinchando en la "letra pequeña" que dice "ir directamente a descarga" o algo así, en inglés.
Otro similar a Windows es #Q4OS, aunque de ese no tengo referencias.
This also happens when I resize the window.
The guest additions are up-to-date, so that should not be the problem. The host is #Debian with #Xfce, but I think this might not be the problem, because it worked from some time and other Windows 10 VMs also work.
Xfce's Wayland Progress Report: What's Ported and What's Next?
It was a brief suggestion, cited as FreeNX, in a video by Vagner Fonseca on another subject.
I shall post more about it soon. I can already say that it should receive much more attention and development in order to be better supported. It's incredible!
#Xfce's Wayland Roadmap Updated :xfce: :wayland:
::: Xfce | A lightweight Linux desktop progresses for Wayland :abunsmile:
The what land? Wayland - for example ISOLATES input / output (typing, etc.) of EVERY WINDOW on desktop.
Goes without saying what this means to further increase security.
Wayland brings modern clarity & straight forward (+more efficient!) operation for all apps drawing graphics on screen.
GNOME (Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian) and Plasma (Steam OS) already have Wayland.

If you would like to learn what Nix is and find out if this is something for you, you might be interested in my article.
I installed #debian and #vscode on my new laptop (on an external SSD for now). Of course vscode hangs at startup. Some posts say it can be fixed by deleting one of two keys from the key ring, but really?
I’m still tempted to try a rolling #linux #distro, but which one? I don’t want one that takes forever to install and manage, uses #xfce and doesn’t pre install hundreds of utilities and games I’ll never use. Oh and a nice theme too perhaps?
@blogdiva Just running pure debian an all our machines, mostly laptop and small servers (raspberries 😊). Had others in the family using #LinuxMint at some point, but about 3 years ago I switched the last ones to #debian. Needs some setting up compared to mint (eg in #XFCE some eye-candy), but once that is done, it just works in my experience. You have hassles though compared to mint if you do fancy stuff with printers, scanners and other gadget, this usually needs some tweeking to get ot going.
Linux Lite 6.6 released. It is a major update to this lightweight OS leveraging the Xfce desktop environment, based on Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS (Jammy Jellyfish).
Linux Lite 6.6 Arrives with Support for 22 New Languages, New AI Helper Tool (9to5Linux article):

We've jazzed up your XFCE desktop by swapping out the ordinary applications menu with the versatile Whisker menu. This little change not only gives your XFCE desktop a fresh, modern vibe, but it also supercharges your workflow. Learn more:
@ubernostrum Heh. I dunno.
I spent a part of yesterday evening reading through the #python pep-722 pep-723 discussions and _I_ think a good lot of them are quite bat-shit; but, in a very quasi-cordial manner. 🤣
I'm grateful that I entered the open source ecosystem with the #Xfce community which has about 23 people and mostly just. Get. Shit. Done. IMNSHO.
Really great people all around.💕
In the days gone by, the major disagreement between mainstream webdevs and me (and probably one of the reasons why I hate #webdev so much) was about webpage styles. I believed that websites should respect user preferences, the other side insisted that websites should look as the artist intended them to look. This particularly hinged on forcing specific fonts.
I should point out that many of the fonts chosen by webdevs are simply too small for me, and scaling websites is, well, suboptimal.
Then we have applications. We already have to deal with multiple toolkits following different design principles. It's really hard to configure a system so that different apps would roughly look alike, use roughly the same fonts (again, large enough for me to read), follow the same behavior (CSD apps, sigh, or the ancient problem of whether "cancel" should be the left or the right button).
And then, apparently we have programmers who are also artists and who don't like the idea of us having any control of how our systems look like, and demand that their apps look precisely how they intend them to look like. Like, they're literally tell us that theming is bad. Sigh.
I couldn't get the firmware on my laptop's iwm0 Wi-Fi card to work during the install, but I was able to install with a urtw0 USB Wi-Fi adapter and set up the iwm0 card afterward with no trouble.
Encryption is now so easy to do. It's a nice addition.
@zeh @selea I went back to straight #debian for my solo company’s dev machine, a 16-core beast that gets regular exercise. It just works. Even the Nvidia card with its proprietary driver worked just fine right away. And the #xfce desktop is simple, clean, and fast.
As someone who was trying to make #Linux work for me on the desktop 20 years ago, I’m very impressed. It’s ready, finally. And now happily back to the first distro I used.
I'm using #XFCE, and therefore LightDM, and I've been puzzled why the hostname on my login screen is off-center. I was looking at it today and I'm wondering if it's gradually shifting rightward. Like something calculates the position and keeps adding one pixel each boot, or something.
Has anyone else seen this?
As much as I like #Linux and #FOSS, it's baffling to me that its #accessibility features is terrible. Built-in screen readers cannot read #Firefox and #Chromium website text well, and its default is so bad its voice is terrible (enough that those how have both vision and auditory issues may give up), #KDE and #Xfce accessibility features are still lacking, no accessibility features for colorblind people as if they don't even exist, CLI and most of its defaults aren't friendly for those with disabilities,...
And before saying that FOSS softwares usually lack accessibility features due to their natures of voluntary and community-funded softwares, sorry, you can't excuse or rationalize that a software is bad, it's just bad. How can some people who can have patience to fix their own softwares that other has done before them cannot be as enthuiastic to improve Linux and #FOSS accessibility???
Since I'm moving here from Fosstodon, I suppose it's a good opportunity for a re-#introduction.
My name's Michał Górny. You may know me as a Gentoo developer, though my social media usage extended beyond that.
I've joined #Gentoo in 2010, back when I was still a student. You could say that we've both matured together, perhaps became less bleeding edge and more stable. There are some things that I'm still doing all these years later, notably the maintenance of #Python ecosystem in Gentoo (which is superior to other distributions, I must say), #LLVM, #XFCE and some other random packages, building Distribution Kernels. I also create #OpenSource software (mostly tools related to Gentoo package management), work in QA, and either do or have done a lot of random stuff that simply needed to be done.
Professionally, I used to be a programmer. However, I quit my last job in 2022 due to health breakdown and haven't managed to find a good job so far. Right now, I'm mostly surviving on what I've managed to save years ago, with some help from my gracious sponsors (thank you for your donations!). I've started a new job recently, though onboarding is taking quite long and it's not yet clear if I'll manage to actually make any profit.
I am very #introvert. I always enjoyed #hiking and fast walks around #nature, and since I've been diagnosed with #diabetes in 2022, this changed from just a pastime to a necessary exercise. That said, I don't like repeating the same routes too often, so I go around by #rail. My main interchange stations are #Poznań, #Leszno, #Głogów and #Wrocław.
A few years ago I adopted three stray #cat siblings: Blackie (or Lulu), Ruh and Mr. Gray (or Mr. Ek!). They are going to cyclically appear in my avatars and profile backgrounds. That said, they made me realize I'm actually a cat, and a big cat too (that's why the "territory" I keep patrolling has roughly 200 km radius).
I hate #politics and I'm quite angry that I am forced to take interest in it. I'm a strong believer in the #CarFree ideology (I don't even have a driver's license). I will sometimes rant in the #AntiCapitalism mood, with a sprinkle of #ecology and #degrowth in the face of #ClimateCrisis.
I enjoy reading #books (fiction and non-fiction alike), watching #movies or #series (though I usually don't manage more than 30 minutes at a time) or playing computer #games (preferably slower, older, single-player games these days).
I generally toot simultaneously in english and polish (except for word plays that don't make sense in the other language). My polish account is: https://pol.social/@mgorny
I've actually never done #introduction here
Continuing in the reply
Isn't completed yet...few icons to finish and some tweaks here and there, but I'm really digging the overall #design of the set.
If anyone is interested, I will post and #share the final set.
He modificado un poco #minbrowser para mostrar favicons y algun estilo que encaja mejor con el resto del tema. Me gusta que consume mucho menos que otros y con la integracion con #bitwarden no echo nada en falta.
I’ve never used a rolling distro before; I assume they remove the need to worry about upgrading to a new major version? Or having to reinstall when a new major version is released?
@rolle This is not uncommon in #FOSS. People create a new thing instead of improving an existing. It doesn't necessary has to be bad. See #Gnome, #KDE, #I3, #XFCE, etc. It might make progress slow to have people working in different things for the same porpoise but it might also bring new benefits and choice. I'm not sure if it's good or bad, but it's how it is

Worked on my first UnCiv Mod today and yesterday:
1 nation, 19 units, 7 buildings. Some units are based on reality, some on my imagination and some on FLOSS projects - so quite a mess.
You can meet Yumi from Ubuntu Touch as a worker, Moby as a ship from Docker, Xue as a scout from Xfce, Wilber as a Great Artist from GIMP, Ferris as a merres unit from Rust and Duke as a lab creature from Java.
hey, #XFCE LazyWeb, when I click a notification, it summons that application to my current virtual desktop, which is never what I want; I always want to be taken to the virtual desktop with that window already on it. Is there a setting somewhere for this? I've looked and can't find anything.
And here's a more technical #introduction, given Hachyderm's focus:
I used to co-organize a #Python meetup in Warsaw.
