Re: Cleanest Desktop Environment and theme for MX?

Makulu Linux has a Lindoz version that Sudoluna may like to take a look at.
Haven't personally looked at it in two or three years but looked a decent effort back then for a windoze look-a-like.
Makulu LinDoz is a redesign of the Original Ubuntu based LinDoz flavor.

Updater behaviour!!

Updater no longer uses the keyring (Seahorse) and asks directly for root password, is this now the normal?

I also see that for some reason it looks like an ubuntu app. ??? See the link in the screenshot. Is this normal?

Should I be worried?

Re: Open Thunar to root broken

Sounds to me like you may, at best, have a data corruption on the hard drive. At worst it's a mechanical issue (head crash?), meaning replacing the drive. I would run a "fsck" or look at "gsmartcontrol" in the menu.
