I've recently tried Manjaro openbox which has some similarities to Alpha OS. Their menu seems to be slightly tidier. In the end I hit a brick wall - I could choose 1024 x 768 resolution but windows would still maximize to 800 x 600
on a separate note - on Alpha OS spacefm still to take a while to start - anyone else experience this?
Open a linux terminal and run spacefm from there possibly in verbose mode. Maybe you can find a hint looking at it's log. Just gave Marv the same advise on gnome-mplayer issues because sometimes it can really be helpful. Cheers
