Re: MX Linux hit #7

This is great, and the team deserves a whole lot of congratulations. I never expected this, and it's secondary to having a distro that we all find really useful.

And just to keep it in perspective ...

Re: Why the large split between these two forum categories?

"Forum How-Tos" doesn't mean "how-tos posted in the forum by members". It means "how-tos about how to use the forum". Maybe your submission could go in "Community Submissions"/"Tips and Tricks" or "Scripts". The "Help" is usually for requesting help and answering, not providing stuff up-front. Maybe...

Re: Type Amharic in MX Linux 17.1

Success. I tried again, and now have Amharic input working as it is supposed to. That is, I can type 'q' and get offered 'ቀ'. Then I can enter a vowel, say 'i', and it settles on 'ቂ', etc. The only thing I did different was first install the 'task-amharic' package from Synaptic, then install 'ibus-m...

Re: Please translate gazelle-installer

Please revisit gazelle-installer on Transifex . There are more strings to translate, 1 very long one and 9 short ones. Thank you. Edit: Note that the only change to the very long string is the insertion of the phrase: "Additional compression options are available for drives using btrfs. Lzo is fast,...

Re: Type Amharic in MX Linux 17.1

I installed ibus-m17n (already had ibus), and Abyssinica SIL font. In IBus preferences, i added the "Amharic - sera (m17n)" input method. Like you, I can switch between English and Amharic input methods, and get the indicating character "አ" in the icon. When I open a text app, say LO Writer, what is...

Re: Type Amharic in MX Linux 17.1

I used to have the problem you describe (with another language, I don't use Amharic) when I opened an app (say Featherpad), then switched input method to desired language. The app wouldn't recognize the new language choice, even though the language icon changed as you say. So try this, if you haven'...

Re: Type Amharic in MX Linux 17.1

Did you do the usual thing with IBus? (Right-click the language icon, select Preferences, select Input Method, select your Amharic, then Add).

Re: Please translate gazelle-installer

In addition to that I do also have seen longer text-strings where I feel that even the original english content is kind of at least debatable. Who best to discuss this kind of corrections within orignal englsih text-strings as I certainly don’t like to put those here into the forum. I'm sure the En...
