Re: Installing Emby

Think that Emby is proprietary, if so it will not be in MX repos.-+

Re: LibreOffice 6.0.1.1 Doesn't Offer Export to EPUB

.odm files are not suitable for conversion to Epub, they are virtually a filing system for holding a set of documents and they need to be made into a single document i.e. an odt file before trying to convert. I have done some more reading about images in Epub. It is not a simple conversion and it ap...

Re: How to completely remove XFCE

Hi Tom welcome to the MX group. I have not tried using Mate, Section 6.3 of the User Manual may help you, doubt if you can completely remove xfce.


PS. I used to work with a guy named Tom Pearce but that was over 50 years ago and he was about 50 then , so it can't be you.

Re: LibreOffice 6.0.1.1 Doesn't Offer Export to EPUB

That's good, means that your copy of Libre Office is OK. The image looks to be an issue, either in LO's conversion method, or in EPub itself. I tried converting an odt document file that contained a Table. The table's words were transferred OK, but all the formatting and lines disappeared in the EPu...

Re: MX-17.1 on Dell XPS 13

Impressive Jerry. Was a bit surprised that there was no comment about precautions against static electricty. I had similar Grub trouble when setting up a Dell desktop using Win 7 for dual boot. Used Puppy to make Grub the grub file and place it on the MBR. Puppy's Grub4dos utility includes a space f...

Re: LibreOffice 6.0.1.1 Doesn't Offer Export to EPUB

You could do a simple test. Load any Open Document File .odt into your Libre Office and try Export As > Epub. That should see if your copy of
LO is faulty. There is nothing wrong with the default LO 6.0.1.1 presently in MX.

Re: LibreOffice 6.0.1.1 Doesn't Offer Export to EPUB

I am using FBReader - though to be honest I do not remember installing it. Possibly came in a package with something else. Also have taken a good look at LO's Help. Very little is said about EPub, the export information is bundled with that for PDF's so I can understand your confusion David. BTW, th...

Re: LibreOffice 6.0.1.1 Doesn't Offer Export to EPUB

I tried renaming the file .odt but no tricking the Export feature. For some reason it can't handle a Master Document - even though LibreOffice Help explicitly recommends that. Sigh. I guess i will need to find a Forum for LibreOffice and ask there. Thanks Try "users@global.libreoffice.org" It is a ...

Re: LibreOffice 6.0.1.1 Doesn't Offer Export to EPUB

I have LO export to Epub in Export as... did you look there? Otherwise, this is a problem for LO, not MX Edit: AND I have checked it. It works. Is your version the same as mine? The only Export options I get say Export to PDF and the other that pops up a window for HTML, PDF, or ODF. I am using 6.0...
