Comments on MX-18.2 MX-Tools > Live Usb Maker > Clone running live system

. FWIW, I run MX-18.2 LiveUSB exclusively. 1. I was surprised that I needed to pre-format the prospective LiveUSB with two partitions, one large ext4 partition for MX with boot flag set, and one small 50 Mb partitioned Fat16(!) for uefi with esp flag set. An unnecessary surprise for a novice to cont...

Re: MX 17 Repository: The firefox thread

Should we wait a bit on this? My synaptic, after a reload, says: GPG error: http://la.mxrepo.com/antix/stretch stretch InRelease: The following signatures were invalid: EXPKEYSIG DB36CDF3452F0C20 antiX (antix repo) <antix@daveserver.info>The repository 'http://la.mxrepo.com/antix/stretch stretch InR...

Re: MX-18 LiveUSB Locks up

. My laptop is a Win7-era device with 4 Gb of ram. I often have Firefox and LibreOffice open at the same time and on occasion have left these un-attended for hours while I do other things. Lately that has gotten me into some trouble since I have found the computer unresponsive after a few hours of s...

MX-18 LiveUSB Locks up (solved)

I had to stop using an MX-18 LiveUSB that had developed an nasty habit of stopping being responsive to keyboard input after a few hours online with no continuous input. History of that LiveUSB included many tweaks, synaptic additions and removals, as well as numerous remasterings, all of which seeme...

Re: MX-18 Feedback

Minor problem with FF64 in MX18 not found in MX17.1 fully upgraded. My MX18 FF64 does not display some html input boxes properly. My MX18 Chromium doesn't have this same problem, but I'd rather be using FF64. Only problem I've noticed so far with MX18. Unlike MX17.1, MX18 FF64 Help says FF updates ...

Where can I find how to do this? Thanks. TJH

Re: MX 17 Repository: The firefox thread

Post 103 was written for upgraded 64-bit MX 17 beta 3 and Firefox 59.0. For 64-bit MX-17.1, Alt-F10 toggle is enabled by default and works as described in post 103; The work-around described in post 103 is not needed, nor AFAICT no longer even possible for MX-17.1. The absence of a Title Bar tweak f...

Re: MX 17 Repository: The firefox thread

My FireFox 59.0 does not provide a GUI choice which affects the presence or absence of a Title line for the browser. I find that there is indeed an Xfce4 toggle Alt-F10 which may be enabled to provide somewhat this function on any Xfce4 window, not just FF59. Unfortunately, this toggle built-in to M...
