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 ...

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

Works for me, cheers. Well done on this consolidation. Switching repos, uninstalling, nice.... As an aside while browsing this, VLC now includes the teletext plugin as standard (I realised recently), and I noticed an upgradable package in the MX Test Repo (I can activate subs from recorded DTV progr...

Re: MX-16 issue: Common font managers cannot delete fonts

A quick test after installing Font Manager allowed me to install some MS TTF fonts I had, along with another from a collection, which I then deleted and confirmed. I did need to open and close libre writer to refresh the available font face listing. It does look simple enough to add and arrange addi...

Re: MX-16 issue: Common font managers cannot delete fonts

I only use Waterfall to browse fonts here, but I agree that fonts are an area that get overlooked a bit, until you want to do some design or publishing work. I do have many fonts archived for such purposes. I've explored font packages and tools but felt a little daunted to go further, in the past.

Re: on-board sshd not recognized

Re: thunderbird ate my icedove - unreal, you gotta be kidding me

I've always copied .icedove or .thunderbird hidden folders to a backup storage periodically, or migrated by copying over the appropriate profile folder to a new system. Backing up the mail folder would be my very first action in your situation.
