Re: Thunar "Delete" Menu = Total Disaster -- Twice

I see that the first poster on this, has not come back and said anything. I have not found any way to delete the home folder just using regular Thunar, that option is not there. You can if you use root Thunar. Not that long ago I was copying files from one folder to another to rename them in an orde...

Re: Thunar "Delete" Menu = Total Disaster -- Twice

On the delete option I've always had it ask me if I was sure that I wanted to permanently delete. The move to trash has never asked me, it just moved it.

Re: MX 17 Repository: The MKVToolnix Thread

I thought that we would want to find out why the new version did not replace the old version as it should. I have upgrade mkvtoolnix from the test/repo a few times and this is the first time there were errors. When mkvtoolnix_35.0.0-1~mx17+1_amd64 + GUI came out there were errors on the GUI side. Ev...

Re: MX 17 Repository: The MKVToolnix Thread

I just tried the install from the test repo and it worked on 64-bit. Try uninstalling both mkvtoolnix and mkvtoolnix-gui, then upgrading both of those at once from the test repo. My last comments on this. 1. If you have mkvtoolnix_33.1.0-0.1~mx17+1_amd64 and mkvtoolnix-gui_33.1.0-0.1~mx17+1_amd64 i...

Re: MX 17 Repository: The MKVToolnix Thread

You still show the mx17+1 version coming from the repo, not the fixed mx17+2... I think I have an opp's moment as I had to many versions of the console output and copied the wrong one. Sorry, I've deleted all of them, so unless the console saves the last one some where, out of luck. I do have the +...

Re: MX 17 Repository: The MKVToolnix Thread

I just uploaded the "mx17+2" fixed packages, so hopefully they'll be in the test repo soon. They are here if you want to try installing the two debs with the Thunar right-click action. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1OGfToNS4qWgal6yhAcvaynjyb2hWmh3z I think you have the other backports already in...

Thanks--looked like the man page got installed in the new location as well as the old, so I'll roll a new version later tonight.
That will be great. MXPI shows mkvtoolnix installed but not mkvtoolnix-gui. I check late on Sunday since I use it a lot.

Re: MX 17 Repository: The MKVToolnix Thread

I had 33.1.0 installed and when the new version was announced I tried to update to it. There was an error about the old gui version still installed. So I plurge all of it. This is what I get trying to install the mkvtoolnix_35.0.0-1~mx17+1_amd64.deb & the mkvtoolnix-gui_35.0.0-1~mx17+1_amd64.deb. Hi...
