Re: BIOS update Hell

I don't think there is any way to reset you bios from MX. On a desktop you would just have to open the case and find the pins to short to do the reset. Your going to have to find some manuals on the mother board and one on the break down of the laptop. Hope you find something for resetting bios. Thi...

Re: My printer won't print from any browser! URGENT!

Until someone with the know how to help with sending a print job to your printer, maybe print to a file as "something.pdf" and then printing the pdf. Since you say the local apps work, this should help until it's fixed.

Re: Keep volume level when switching output devices

I frequently switch between speakers and headphones but the volume slider level is remembered for each device separately. How can I make it so the slider stays at its current level (carries over) when I switch to another device? Try right clicking on the speaker icon and open the mixer. Use the "Ou...

Re: MX-Workbench Screen ??

I dont remember what workbench uses for screenlocking but.you might check the power manager settings in the menu if.present. also.look.for screensavers settings. It appears to be hard coded as there is no Power Manager or any settings for screenlocking that I could find. I even installed the Power ...

MX-Workbench Screen ??

Using MX-Workbench-19.3_x64.iso the screen goes blank after about 10 minutes. MX has a Power Manager where you can stop the display from Blanking etc. So how do you change those setting in Workbench. When I want to have the screen to be blank I prefer to just tap the screen power button.

Re: Recommended way to disable/enable services?

But... surely the easiest way would be to deselect them at installation time? How? I installed MX last week and I don't recall the installer having any choices for anything but SAMBA, CUPS and SANE, and as far as I can tell those choices near the end of the installer don't work. I still had to go i...

Re: MX 17 Repository: The Pale Moon Browser Thread

I have updated to 28.5.0 in MX and in Mint 19.1 Cinnamon. The new "Check for Updates" entry in the 'Help' dropdown menu is missing in the MX build. I haven't seen any other way to do an update check. It does work properly in the other build. You might want to read the Release notes. http://www.pale...
