I put these screenshots together the other day. It's changed slightly since then but this is a fairly accurate representation.

This originated with my frustration of Mac-like setups that were inaccurate. I decided to go all-in with this one.

This is using KDE Plasma and Latte-dock. The launcher application is Slingscold, which is pretty tricky to install.

I think I have nailed what I needed coming from macOS, replicating the bits I was missing (global menu and icon task list at the bottom). Neither need nor plan any further customisation in a big while. Details in my blog.

MX Linux KDE (beta 2).

Just a report on my experience, with a Translate button at the top of right column, for desktop screens.

A very nicely done blog, @falvio! MX is pretty to begin with and I like your presentation, which adds attractiveness.

smxi not used post-install, I see. I find it very useful, once the temptation to overuse options is overcome.

I thought that smxi was used post-install (after install). It can hardly be used pre-install (before install)...

It is a lot wider than MX Linux

smxi is an interactive tool designed to help people maintain their systems. It supports Debian (Stable, Testing, and Sid) and true Debian based distros (such as, but not limited to, AntiX, Aptosid, Epidemic, Linux Mint Debian [LMDE], Mepis). It does not support Ubuntu based distros because there are too many differences between Debian and Ubuntu.

@arochester -- pardon my grammar (or lack thereof) as I figured the tacit 'was' after 'smxi' was understood by the OP. I will watch this more closely in the future. Thanks!

Yes, it is wider than just MX as it applies to all Debian and Debian-based distros [NOT Ubuntu, as it, despite claiming to be of Debian roots, is not a "true" Debian distro].

One may use or try to use smxi as the acid test as to whether or not the distro in use is truly Debian or not (please note @jglen490 -- LOL!).

Just installed this to be able to help @Nunud and his 'terribly wrong' thread! I really like it as it reminds me of when I was young and working in the woods. Of course, these trees are just babies compared to then. . .

Back when the woods in the Pacific Northwest still had some old growth. Saw a sable there once, chasing a martin through the branches. Wildlifers then told me it couln't have been -- that sables were extinct -- they were wrong, as they often are, still! A yearling doe (must have never seen a human before) came so close while eating lunch that I could have touched it with an ax handle. It was just curious. I moved my hand and it was gone in a flash.

I used to pick King Boletus mushrooms the size of a small dinner plate. Good eating with a steak and a beer! Oh, well. Those days are gone, but not forgotten.
