Re: Laptop conversion to MX - Vista problem

http://www.minitool.com/partition-manager/partition-wizard-home.html is what I used when creating partitions on a Vista Dell laptop, from memory. I suspect I encountered similar issues doing it directly with MX-14 at the time, but in any case, it worked out fine and I ultimately removed Vista. I sti...

Re: Drive sdb2 is owned by ROOT

A ntfs-3g partition sometimes shows as ntfs (unknown) and needs correcting in Disk Manager.

This happened to me with internal partitions but is something to check.

Re: Loss sound quality

Synaptic, File - History.....shows update history.

MX Tools, Select Sound might be an option, if more than one sound card is present.

Re: File Manager following installation

Disk Manager will easily allow you to choose which partitions are mounted automatically when MX boots up. I think the default is to just mount root and home partitions. If you have many other partitions or installed systems, this cautionary approach does help avoid accidental unintended changes to o...

Re: Debian 8.8 upgrade due to push a lot of updates May 6 2017

I'll be interested in what VLC we get.


I like the current VLC since it displays Teletext subtitles on my TV recordings when selected.

*edit......still seems good after updates

Re: Major problem with Icedove

Interchangeable yes. Happily manually moved profiles between both here without fuss.

I suspect the Thunderbird 'skin' builds would be better supported and updated than Icedove versions, at least in the longer term, if using MX-16.

Re: mx-package-manager (new MX app)

I do like the ability to upgrade individual packages easily. I wanted to do this in Synaptic the other day, skipping the VB packages to save on ISP data. I didn't see an obvious way to do that with Synaptic in the end. I can also see all my installed applications, which is handy. I should learn how ...
