Yes.
I used exactly that,
but all the time no luck.
To have the black cursor back it's enough
even to change the size from let say
18 to 19 and the black thema comes back.
Thanks for trying to help me.
I found something similar to my problem here.

Mmmm... yes, now had same problem too after installing oxygen cursor theme and testing some more.
I think the problem is the /root/.icons/default folder, deleting it solved it for me (probably shouldn't be there), can you try that ?
(btw, changing cursor size for the aero theme doesn't work, adwaita is ok)

Unfortunately for me still didn't work.
I will try with completely pristine system and will make another try.

Did some more testing and, although not 100% sure, I think the problem is because of that XFCE has its own settings in /root/.config/xfce4 and doesn't change the settings in /root/.gtkrc-2.0
So changing to Adwaita in /root/.gtkrc-2.0 should make it persist:
Code:
gtk-cursor-theme-name="Adwaita"

Or maybe better just remove /root/.gtkrc-2.0 , then it cannot override any XFCE settings.

Hi again.
The only way that half worked for me was to delete

/root/.icons/aero
/root/.icons/default

then after exit x" adwaita" doesn't change,
but returns back to default size.
May be that will help you in some way.

It's a bit of a mystery, but I still think deleting /root/.gtkrc-2.0 will fix the whole issue, did you try that?
(it sort of "confuses" XFCE)

Yes i tried with no luck.
It is a mystery and complicated.
I am surprised that too but could
live with that. Smile
May be the reason is too deep and if we try hard
to resolve it will get worse.

I upgraded a Buster64 Starter Kit install to this k5.6.0 kernel along with the latest Palemoon v28.9.2. It looks good so far.

The second snap below shows the actual sizes from a Desktop with a wide screen. On reflection - magnification might be simpler.

PS Remastering is masterly - you can just click and go,
My apology - the File name in yellow on red below - should read ".conkyrc-port". Also, in both the original and in the attached file - the MEM line needs an "iB" amendment to "B" to eliminate the double "ii" shown in both shots.

PostPosted: Thu 07 May 2020, 12:49    Post subject: quick-remaster
Subject description: changes
 

Some changes for the "quick-remaster" program:

- v1.1.9, added mksquashfs zstd compression option. It is just as fast as lz4, but results in smaller file size.

- v1.2.0, added zstd option too, and very different method used now, previous versions were rather complex, (e.g. using mount bind, aufs overlay, temp folders etc...) and a forced reboot was required.
This works rather simple, basically by just "mksquashfs / 01-filesystem.squashfs" with added exclusions (for cleaning e.g. man and doc, log and cache files) and doesn't force a reboot (prompt yes/no to reboot when remaster is ready)

Install quick-remaster with synaptic or apt from terminal.

Fred

I just ran the new update on stretch.

How do I create the new 01-filesystem without the other .squashfs files included?

Sorry, that's the downside of this new method, you can't (except the kernel .squashfs, it will not be merged) (only possible to disable loading the others by renaming to .bak in the live folder)
Install v1.1.9 if that's an important option:
Code:
apt install quick-remaster=1.1.9

(but I'll think about how to exclude the others with this new method, won't be easy...)

Fred

For now, I'll just make unloading and renaming the 3 sfs's I use a part of the pre-remaster preparation and reconsider if I really need to be loading office and spotify every time any way.

edit: Does just unloading/deactivating the *.squashfs file keep it out of the remaster, or do you have to rename it too? If you are just copying directly from / then just deactivating should do it?

Yes, unloading/deactivating before remastering will keep them it out of 01-filesystem.squashfs, no renaming needed.
If not unloading, merging the extra modules in the remaster, then I'd recommend renaming them (otherwise makes no sense loading at boot).
I may change the GUI adding info about this.

The older version is still OK to use, I just didn't like the complexity of it (with the chance of unmounting fails and therefore had to make as workaround a forced reboot after done)

Fred
