Re: Waterfox and getting Firefox legacy addons back

I've never tried Waterfox so don't know much about. I think FEBE backs up your extensions etc., what version are you using? 'turtlebay777' gave you the link for the current mozilla addon's which are not 'legacy addons'. You could check out 'Pale Moon' addon site and see if any of their addons work, ...

Re: Install on hard drive like on USB flash

I have a 240 G ssd drive that I used to make a live MX-18.3_x64. I have a USB/ssd cable to connect it to the computer. When I did it I said to use 30% of the drive and after I formatted the rest of the drive as a data partition to save some files. It works just like a regular USB stick. The only ide...

Re: Unable to play video in VLC media player

I can confirm that vlc will not show the video but does play the sound. Does not matter if I pick the file from the GUI or use the terminal. Here is the terminal errors: VLC media player 3.0.8 Vetinari (revision 3.0.8-0-gf350b6b5a7) [0000559693de81a0] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interf...

Re: CD/DVD-ROM not visible in system

Since it seems MX sees the drive let's see if it will respond to commands. Open a terminal and then enter this to open the tray: eject dvd Enter this to close the tray: eject dvd -t If this opens and closes the tray it is seeing commands. Then the next test would put a movie Dvd in, I use SMPlayer n...

Re: Default conky on MX-19 Beta 1

Beside one can always edit the conky and change the colors to their liking. If someone does like my brother with rotating backgrounds, there in no way to get colors that work for all the backgrounds.

Re: Anybody Use Streamripper?

For VLC go to view and check Advance Controls, then do it again for Status Bar. If VLC can play your network then it can record when you click the red record button. It saves it in your Music Folder wit something like "vlc-record-2019-09-02-18h38m04s-1. "TITLE what ever it is".mp3", the date is the ...

Re: Anybody Use Streamripper?

You might want to check out VLC as it can record network streams. You can do it from the program it self or from a script. I record a prodcast with it and since it is a mp3 file it saves it to my Music folder.
