FLUXBOX MENU
« on: 24. December 2015, 23:52:59 »
MYSTERIOUS BREKAGE OF THE MENU  -- ADDED A BIT OF SOFTWARE  -- SUDDENLY THE EXIT DOESNT WORK  -- EDIT THE MENU & IT SAYS THE NEW EXIT METHOD IS THE OBLOGOUT  -- DONT KNOW WHAT I DOWNLOADED THAT LOADED THAT -- FIXED IT EASILY ENOUGH BUT BEING A FAIRLY ANAL MINIMALIST I FIND THIS VERY CHEESY -- NOT TOO CRAZY ABOUT THE NEW MENU REGENERATION STUFF EITHER - SO FAR IT HAS HELPED ME START OVER ONE TIME WHEN I WADED INTO THE MENU WITH THE MISSION TO MODIFY- BUT JUST ONCE  -- THE REST OF THE TIME IT SEEMS TO CREATE AN ABSOLUTE MESS OF THINGS --

Please, don't write with capital letters only, it makes the text less readable. (I don't understand much you wrote there.)
Check the file /var/log/pacman.log ther you can find what you installed. Go to the end of the text file.
Your old menu might be still available as a backup in ~/.fluxbox as menu.bak, rename it to menu and it should work again. And save it to somewhere else, too.

PLEASE DONT TELL ME NOT TO WRITE IN CAPITALS  -- MYSELF & 3 OF OUR INSTALLERS DID A MARATHON COMPARISON BETWEEN MANJARO & DEBIAN  -- ONE OF THE FEW THINGS WE NOTICED RIGHT OFF THE BAT WAS THE FONT SIZE IN THE INSTALL DIALOGUE - MANJARO SEEMS TO BE WRITTEN FOR 16 YEAR OLDS WITH PREFECT EYES -- ACTUALLY AN EXTREMELY MINOR ISSUE OVERALL  -- ONE AREA WHERE MANJARO BESTED DEBIAN WAS THIS -- TWO 3 YEAR OLD PC'S -- DEBIAN WOULD NOT AUTOCONFIGURE THE DHCP ON THEM & ESTABLISH AN INTERNET CONNECTION  -- THE MAJARO HAD NO PROBLEMS & WENT RIGHT ON  -- THE ONLY OTHER MINOR ISSUE WE HAD WAS USING OCTOPI  -- IF YOU MAKE A TYPING MISTAKE - OR SIMPLY SEARCH FOR SOMETHING THAT ISNT THERE -- THE ITEM IS GRAYED OUT TO THE POINT OF BEING ILLEGIBLE -- DONT LIKE THAT  -- MINOR BUT ANNOYING -- ALL IN ALL -HOWEVER  A COMPLETE  WASH  -- I NOW HAVE 9 MACHINES IN MY WORK AREA RUNNING MANJARO /size]

Might I suggest that instead of typing in capital letters and increasing the size of the font in the post, you increase the zoom level on your web browser?

There are many options to help make text easier to read. One for Firefox is the NoSquint extension which allows you to set up per-site zoom and colour options.

Finally, Fluxbox isn't known as the most accessible desktop environment. However, you should still be able to increase font sizes in its options to make things easier to read.

To increase font size in Fluxbox menu you need to edit the style file.
Best copy your prefered style file from /usr/share/fluxbox/styles to ~/.fluxbox
Code: [Select]
cp /usr/share/fluxbox/styles/manjaro-flux/ ~/.fluxboxand edit the theme.cfg file
Code: [Select]
menu.frame.font: cantarell-14
menu.title.font: cantarell-14:bold
toolbar.clock.font: cantarell-14
toolbar.workspace.font: cantarell-14
toolbar.iconbar.focused.font: cantarell-10
toolbar.iconbar.unfocused.font: cantarell-10
window.font: comfortaa-13
Choose the fonts and sizes you like.

I somehow start to like your style...
Anyway, I think it is strange to compare Manjaro installers with the Debian installer - they are completely different.

i do not recall having any trouble reading the manjaro installer text, and if i can read it most people could! i am at least as ancient as the op. i installed manjaro on a lenovo t400.
