Re: thinkpad running hotter than normal with MX

I had an X201 and they tend to run hot no matter the OS. 60C is probably not outside it's normal range of temps.

Re: Locked out after last update MX 18

Is the partition with your home folder on it full? No, about 60% and everything is on the root partition. With this added login issue I just decided to call it and switch back to Ubuntu on this machine as Plex seems to be less of a hassle on Ubuntu. I've had issues a couple of times with Plex on th...

Locked out after last update MX 18

I have a weird problem I have not run into before. I just ran updates on MX 18 and now not only does it no longer auto login, it won't take my user or root password but keeps me at the login screen. Any help appreciated. Edit: only other thing besides updates is that I ticked 'configure new displays...

Re: MX18.3 update to a number of debian packages (base-files one of them)

Hang on, it upgrades grub-pc, and asks if you want to keep your configuration file. I chose to keep it---let's see what happens when I reboot. Update: I appeared to have chosen wisely. No difference in the GRUB screen or menu. Dang, we didn't push mx-announce to MX 18, which this kind of situation ...

Re: MX-19 Beta 2.1 Feedback

Looking very good. Just want to compliment you guys for the work on the installer. I didn't mind the old MX installer, but a linear experience that doesn't require the user to wait around for the next thing to happen, and then the next, really makes the installer much more user friendly. Also wonder...

Re: Skype

I'm looking for input on the state of Skype on linux currently. I have a friend who has watched me use MX as my daily driver for some time and who also needs to upgrade from Win 7 fairly soon. She has said that she would like to switch over to linux, but the catch is that Skype is essential to her ...
