    (Though with newer versions of Gnome Builder, you have to copy
    Code:
    /usr/share/gtksourceview-3.0/styles/xubuntu-dark.xml
    to
    Code:
    /usr/share/gtksourceview-4/styles/
    )
    I have been using iLynx theme, based in the Cobalt Theme, by Will Farrington( but adapted for better readability.. )

    The problem, is, each time you save a text script file, it looses the Color Theme, which is very, very annoying..there are a bug open for some 10 years or even more, about that...I use mousepad, and its a nightmare, because you need to select again the theme, each time you save the code you are doing..
    Crazy..

    I'm both excited and nervous for Xubuntu 19.10, on one hand, XFCE 4.14! On the other hand, limited 32-bit support...

    They say the problem is within GtkSourceView, I believe.
    But when they open a file in Mousepad, they can circumvent that miss-behaviour of GtkSourceView, by detect file type, and the open it like if the file had a extension, then GtkSourceView would apply the correct Color Scheme to that Language..

    Even the Linux Kernel recognizes text script based files, starting with its "MAGIC NUMBER" ( '#!' )

    What about modernizing multi-decade old and dying desktop ?

    I'd like to see global menu ON by default

    I'd like to see a dock

    I'd like to see better support for window snapping

    I'd like to see a fully graphically-accelerated desktop

    I bet this is because of IBM's conspiracies to make sure GNU/Linux will never take off on the desktop.

    I'm trying to fill the debianxfce-shaped hole in this forum.

    Well, you could also whine.

    This is an area in which we need to be patient.
