As soon as you click it (it opens) it set Window Theme to Pix and Widget Theme to Pix and sets new Global Hilite Color.
It breaks ALL themes by overriding File Hilite Color, Menu Bar Hilite Color with the same one used for Menu Hilite Color (the only one you can actually set in app).
I have never used the rpi Appearance Settings app, as it does not give the user any control over almost ALL of the "Appearance Settings".
I "fixed" the over-ride for /usr/share/raspi-ui-overides/applications/lxappearance.desktop.
On one of my Raspbian Jessie setup I use a modified Artwiz-boxed openbox-3 theme. Both of these now show padding where the Window Icon is (on the left), based on how many Window Action Buttons you have (on the right). This is wrong. (I will link to a screenshot already available on this forum if anyone want to see what it should look like).
This affects any Openbox theme that sets Window Title to Center:
Code: Select all
I dont see why, in 2016, there are so many problems EVERY TIME the default user interface is upgraded. Its like the person putting this stuff together has never used Linux before, and therefore doesn't follow the rules, which have been well established just to eliminate these sorts of "mishaps".
I appreciate the effort (whoever) has been putting into creating a genuine and unique Raspbery Pi UI theme, I think it is needed and should be installed by default. But it is not for me (I have too many OS versions for them ALL to look EXACTLY the same) so its the first thing I change, adding lxappearance to menu.
Why should I have to put up with serious user interface breakages just because someone has not figured out how to do an IF-THEN-ELSE in the appropriate script file (or created one).
(skip if you dont like feelings)
Yes they are serious when you cant get access to the main menu. A lot of people also dont have a Linux/Mac system the can fix it on either. I am just lucky that I keep a folder on the (normally clean by default) desktop, so I can fix these issues, that and I always expand the virtual terminals to at least 5-6 (these are often turned off by default nowadays).
Imagine someone, young or old, who has a project on there rpi, and now they cant get access to it because:
1) they dont know enough about Linux/Unix to be able to find or change anything
2) the ssh.d is turned off by default
3) they dont have access to another computer to salvage
4) their only web browser (to get help) is now in-accessable
all because some forced them to do things their way without asking them or even telling you that things were "radically" going to change.
A lot of people use computers just to do things, not to understand how they work, or how to fix the underlying OS when it gets broken, or (more often than not) stops doing things the way they were 2 min ago. Alot of the time it takes many hours of painful scouring (reseach,find,edit,redo) before you find the right setting in the right file at the right place before you get the result you are looking for.
I bought my Pi to use in a vehicle cos its <12v. At 2 o'clock in the morning, hundreds of KM's away from there nearest town, I tend to get upset when my Pi breaks. I liked what the Pi could do (and could be), I now have 5 of them, and about a dozen OS's atm. I have at least one none Raspbian-based Linux with a web browser and a USB SD-Card reader available at all times, I bet not many other people do.
