I use mEdit. It's pretty much the old gEdit with no extra deps...

geany plus geany-plugins, of course! Version 1.31 is available @ SBo, I am using packages version 1.33 available here (intended for next Slint batch of updates, so fully unofficial):

I used to use Leafpad and I was happy with it. Now I have allowed myself to get used to Geany and it is fine for me

Thanks !

OTOH, after reading the following I'm not sure it something I would want to include

Yes, and it seems more fitting Ubuntu & their desktop. It is not intended as the quote can be read: https://linuxaria.com/howto/how-to-r...y#comment-3675 and a review mentions that it provides search suggestions, apparently. But too much faff/depencencies for the obtained functionality (one normally has some clue what to look for...)

I changed to using xfce when kde went from version 3 to version 4, Absolutely agree that the _most_ _useful_ add-on is xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin. But I am also a proponent for xfce4-datetime-plugin and xfce4-sensors-plugin. As far as editors go, vim/gvim is my go-to, but that's more likely because of years spent in a Sun/Solaris shop and my fingers 'know' it)

Xfce for Slackware Users

If I need anything more complicated than mousepad I fire up a xfce4-terminal and open vim.

I confirm Didier with geany and plugins. Been using them for a few years. I also use meld for a graphical diff viewer.

My thoughts exactly, it is a subjective feeling but XFCE on Slackware is very pleasant and sublime.

Eye Candy

A good source of eye candy for your Xfce desktop is,

https://www.xfce-look.org/

I particularly like this one, https://www.xfce-look.org/p/1223551/
but everyone has different taste.

Very cool. I wonder what the icons are. Been using Nutrix last week.


https://github.com/Nitrux/nitrux-icon-theme

Been trying out that theme. Wow. Finally, the Dark theme I have been looking for and is easy to read and proper contrast of text in textbox/imput fields.

Just FYI for those not using Xfce, there are also kde-look.org, box-look.org, gnome-look.org (good source for GTK+ themes), and probably others I'm missing.
