Installation / Re: change font size on panel clock, how? (SOLVED)
« on: July 10, 2018, 02:01:00 pm »
very good, works very well!.  Not only the correct size but also colorful!!!

Okay let's say you have the clock set as a custom format of
Code: [Select]
%a %m-%B %d%n%I:%M %pwell the xfce clock also accepts pango markup .. so you could adjust the font with say
Code: [Select]
<span font="Arial 15" color="#FF0000">%a %m-%B %d%n%I:%M %p</span>if you wanted the same thing, but in red Arial 15

or maybe
Code: [Select]
<span font="Magneto 12" color="#A2C6FF">%a %m-%B %d%n%I:%M %p</span>if you wanted the same thing, but in light blue Magneto 12 :P

or maybe
Code: [Select]
<span font="Comic Sans MS Bold 18">%R</span>if you just want the standard clock but in Comic Sans MS Bold 18

FYI - You can also use pango markup for the whiskermenu button text if you wish.

Installation / change font size on panel clock, how? [Solved]
« on: July 10, 2018, 10:09:01 am »
Love the latest P9.  My font size of time in the panel is small.  Can not figure out how to make it bigger..., would appreciate help.

it must be a bug, I solved the issue by getting into properties and changing the time to manual, rather than synchronizing to a server.

thanks for input from everyone.

And what was che clock showing ?

clock was showing 4:41PM.

So what was the ACTUAL time where you are when you ran that.

And what was the clock showing ?

correct time is local time: 9:41AM

What is the ACTUAL time ?

and what's the output from:
Code: [Select]

Here ..

Are you dual-booting winders, by any chance ?


I looked at your previous threads, and you said you're dual-booting '10' for use with Citrix.

If that's the case, check this thread, for the answer:   ;)

this is my old laptop, only have P8 running, no dural booting.

It is actually very easy: just install the Citrix web receiver as mentioned in my previous post. Start it up, fill out your credentials and you are ready to go!

With kind regards,

I get an "SSL error" and does not complete the connection...

I have old USB card with digital output (turtle beach original microadvantage), works well on puppylinux, but on P7, in the gui there is no USB soundcard as an option.  I removed pulseaudio since on terminal alsamixer work and recognizes USB card.  I rebooted and still there is no USB soundcard option.

All other apps seem to have a pin option on right click on plank, except chromium-browser on P7, seems to be a known bug.

anyone have a solution for this?


Can you post what that help was, so others can benefit too ?

This from Edimax support resolved it for me.

Basically, you have to use the following commands from a Terminal program. 
open a Terminal program
make sure your system is up-to-date
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
restart your computer just in case kernel has been updated
open a Terminal program again
make sure you have all the necessary files to compile a driver
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential git
clone the repository
git clone
change to the cloned folder
cd ~/rtl8812au
compile the driver using make
install the device driver
sudo make install
activate the driver module
sudo modprobe 8812au
and reboot
