Re: Anyone use wide screen monitors? Does it help in any way?

On my desktop computer I use a 1920 x 1080 23" DVI monitor for most of my "work", with a 1080i 32" LED TV on the VGA output when I want to see something REALLY big. I use the wide screen monitor to have two browser windows open. One with music/news (in a smaller size), one with the browser or book r...

It sometimes means Significant Other (who may need more help than "some one") :happy:

Re: MX-Workbench Community Respin

OOPS! Thanks Adrian. As far as I can tell I didn't mess anything up too badly. At least not so far. What I was trying to do was to have a "spare" computer with Workbench along with the regular/current MX available at turn-on. I also have the latest Workbench on USB, should that be needed to help som...

Re: MX-Workbench Community Respin

So, I've downloaded all the appropriate Workbench items into a 17.1 installation, using the listing from github. Do I have to recreate the "Workbench Tools Launcher" somewhere in my menus, or is it available already? And yes, you can freely assume that this is going to be a "learning experience" for...

Re: lightdm-gtk-greeter-mx16 update error

All gone. Thanks for the prompt reply. Yes, this is the workbench version which I installed on the netbook for maximum portability (short of a USB install). I used Synaptic to remove the 1.0mx16+2 version, with the result that I had a "generic" login window. Then I installed the 1.1mx15+2 version an...

lightdm-gtk-greeter-mx16 update error

I'm sure it's me, but hopefully some kind soul has a hint for me what I'm doing wrong. Problem is that lightdm-gtk-greeter-mx16 doesn't want to update: dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/lightdm-gtk-greeter-mx16_16.0.98_all.deb (--unpack): trying to overwrite '/etc/lightdm/lightd...

Re: Any manage to install Waterfox?

Many thanks @v3g4n!! Maybe if I RTFM a bit more I'll be able to figure out things like that. I don't know if this would help @Mauser, as he (she?) wasn't wanting to do what I did to get it to "install" and run. Guess that's why you're a "Guide" :number1: and I'm not :turtle: . I got it to appear in ...
