Grub - custom fonts

Just a simple one, being what font faces work well for others who have experimented with Grub Customizer, and if there are perhaps a 'safe set' or 'system' fonts that are known to be reliable? I dabbled a bit today again but none of the font faces I chose were particularly presentable, nor an improv...

Re: Infected MX-16.1

I have noticed that Thunderbird is showing Yahoo Mail password login problems a few times in the last couple of weeks here. This problem is....intermittent.

I can easily login to the webmail version, apart from the repeated caution the browser shows each time.

Re: Compiz Emerald Window Manager

Wombat Gray sounds interesting. These critters (two extant species exist, one quite endangered, the other relatively common) leave distinctive, cubed-shaped droppings. :happy:

Re: Repositories

I did a big update yesterday via NZ and only got a partial one, very slow it was. I then switched to Utah and finished the job. I've had this glitch with NZ before I believe, intermittently.

Re: Repositories

I got Utah last time, and today, NZ, when checking for the fastest repo. Internet probably go via Melbourne in any case.

Re: help with decision

You could also consider a live USB with persistence, in addition to a HDD install, using MX-16 or AntiX. These typically run as well as an installed version, while allowing for some experimenting before installing things on an internal drive. If you were really keen, a 16-32 GB USB device would prov...

Re: MX 15/16 Repository: The Adobe-flashplugin Thread

I noticed some Adobe updates very recently, during a routine Synaptic update. I tend to look at the details of updates, to see if things like FF are being updated, or mx apps, or the installer, or other familiar things like that. I assume MX-16.1 flash support is simply provided via the new Adobe Fl...

Re: MX 15/16 Repository: The Compiz (Reloaded) Thread

I've tried Compton, but reading back over comments here, Compiz sounds interesting and seems to have the wrinkles smoothed out for easy installation and experimenting, so I'll give it a go on my original MX-16 install, as I steadily migrate over to my fresh install of MX-16.1. * Just checking Compiz...

Re: MX Start Buttons

Panel with one of the new MX buttons and my own Terminal icon, replaced Orage clock with a generic one that completes transparent look, since I use Conky anyway, at top right of screen.

Re: Fundamental change in Manual procedures

LO to pdf conversions look to be okay - I'm still checking this. That option was one of the attractions of Linux to me, before the turn of the century, say around 1997! Sometimes, I'd create tables separately, and drop them in the main document when satisfied, from memory. Possibly even edited HTML...
