Anydesk

Just found this item about anydesk, does anyone know whether it is still the same https://blog.trendmicro.com/trendlabs-s ... e-variant/

Also I have been told that anydesk needs systemd to operate. If so how do we get around it?

Re: MX Snapshot creates 87 GB ISO (unusable by USB Maker)

ok, then xfdesktop crashed, and due to the saved session feature its not restarting.

1. run "xfdesktop --reload" from the terminal as a regular user

2. logout and login.
Thank you for your help, everything is now back to normal.

If you right-click on the desktop and choose Desktop Settings then click the Icons tab, what is selected for Icon Type?
There is no response to right clicking the desktop. Also tried using the desktop setting but although all the icons are selected none are displayed.

Re: Install Libre Office 6.1 ???

Hi
Welcome to MX, to upgrade to 6.1.5 open the MX Package installer and select Debian Backports, enter in the search box Libreoffice and then tick install.
You may want to check that all the files you need are selected i.e. Language pack.
