Re: TP-Link TL-WN822N wifi dongle on MX-17

Update - I just installed MX17RC1 and got this working and it initialised at boot (once at least) and works with NetworkManager this time. Basically the same steps: - build and install the driver with dkms - blacklist rtl8xxxu by creating a blacklist file in /etc/modprobe.d/ - reboot - configure wi...

Re: MX-17 Release Candidate 1 - Feedback

Take two for installing and all looks OK so far. I suspect the NZ repo might not be up-to-date yet, and switched to LA again.

Re: MX-17 Release Candidate 1 - Feedback

I was too quick I think but installed the *.deb above and had no errors in Synaptic with mx-tweak being updated. Folder contents post update attached. 10_linux is the only file showing a creation date of today, however. Have you used grub customizer by chance? Indeed I did. Apart from basic desktop...

Re: MX-17 Release Candidate 1 - Feedback

The SATA drive I use is around 12 months old and should be OK, but I'll have another go installing with a fresh download later today. The data partition (but not two other common partitions) being read-only/owned by root is good enough reason to begin anew. Please continue with the fine work and che...

Re: MX-17 Release Candidate 1 - Feedback

Yep, no problems updating Synaptic in a live session, nor mounting my 'data' partition (copy/delete etc working fine).
I thought I might have a bad *.iso and might download again at the library today just to be sure.

**never fear, reinstalling is not a problem here.

Re: MX-17 Release Candidate 1 - Feedback

I changed to the LA mirror after the initial NZ had defaulted, but neither work for me. *Just added Waterfall, but again the same glitch. Selecting previously unselected package gwaterfall.

Re: MX-17 Release Candidate 1 - Feedback

Getting an error from Synaptic:

Code: Select all

E: mx-system: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2
E: mx-apps: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured


A similar issue when I tried to add Australian spell/thesaurus packages

Anyone else?
