Second pair of spectacles works for me. Most large opticians offer 2-for-1, just ask for "computer prescription" and tell them the distance you sit from the screen. If you're living in the USA or anywhere else that rips off their clients, send your prescription mail order to www.glassesdirect.co.uk or any other more rational nation's opticians where they support proper healthcare!

I want to enlarge the Menu items text

I don't think there's a specific control for just this item.....

Menu -> Desktop -> Change Appearance -> Theme - Font selection (at bottom of window) allows you to increase the font size but will change other displays as well as the menu.....( you may need to do a Window Manager Restart from the Session menu to see the changes).

@Belham2 has provided JWM advice which does not completely apply to LXDE..... but global fontsize via Font Manager does work - but ignore bits about fixmenus and jwm restart!!!!

Hmmm, you mean these poor users of LxPupSC in the 32-bit world don't have the option & luxury of switching back and forth from LXDE and JWM? Just right there another reason to dump LxPupSC and put more effort behind LxPup64---which, by the way gang, Peebee gives you both desktop mgr options of doing with its own menu entry to switch back & forth. I just made the mistake that you all still running LxPupSc 32-bit have the same creature comforts & power that we do in Peebee's 64-bit world of LxPup64. Wink

Apologies Cool

LxPupSc has the same desktop switching as LxPup64 - but for both, the primary desktop manager is LXDE and it's the LXDE menu that needed adjustment.....

Thanks gents for all your various ideas on this.

As no progress made, I'm abandoning experimental
LxPupSc 32 and going back to my favourite distro Xslacko 4.2.

I don't like switchable dual window managers
in principle anyway, if only to avoid confusion and
improve user satisfaction on the necessary features.

imho think concerted effort should be focused on just perfecting
the considered better one of the two for the job in hand.

As a side benefit, with a big chunk of WM code removed,
the iso size will be reduced to the delight of those on
very slow broadband.

Best regards.

Rodney,

Sorry the advice didn't pan out (I'm surprised it didn't). I fool with menus and font sizes in all pups and pup-derivatives, no matter the WM. Oh well, it's not like X-slacko 4.2 isn't nice, because it is. We just need rg66 to come back and update x-slacko 4.2. Make sure you've got things like openssl and other stuff updated (a lot of stuff is posted for this) in it.

Take care.

Change resolution to 1024x768 or get an older laptop with 1024x768 screen was my solution. Anything else is just wacky. Very Happy

Unofficial.....patch found at:
https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic.php?pid=46711#p46711

32-bit deb from the same forum:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxKgGOEUcdFTak9IUk9sUWFsSm8

Effect differs by theme - some work ok others need the radius set to 0 (square corners)

Neat! Cool

Yes; the contrasting borders themselves (in the themes that have them) are not being rounded - but a bit of Compton drop shadow appears to "soften" that glitch somewhat, making a number of them quite usable as-is. A little tweaking could make 'em even better, I'm thinking...

ooh ooh radiussed corners Very Happy Something I loved in some of my retro XFCE setups. Now back. I did have to remove my lxde/lxpanel/openbox setup in my rather elderly savefile and redo them after the update to get it but that's quick. 22T to 23T to 24T to 25T updates all pretty seamless (savefiles). Only using the core 2 duo lightly (til trees stop falling on fences) but all is well on it. Slimjet 14.0.15.0 (OscarTalks i686 SFS) running perfectly. 14.0.16.0 downloaded but not run yet.

Update: Slimjet 14.0.16.0 i686 SFS also just fine on 25T

@peebee,
I've noticed that LxPupSc has a later version of X.org than slacko 6.9.9.9.
Do you have any words of wisdom on how I might update my slacko install to have the same X.org version as LxPupSc?
