Re: Where are Monthly Snapshots

For me the downloads page is a bit confusing with the word List? Further, many of the mirrors just reference a github site with an iso to download that does not tell you what it is - is it a current snapshot or just the initial iso? I just believe some clarification would help. Thanks.

Where are Monthly Snapshots

I have been looking on the site for the latest monthly snapshot but so far been unable to find it. Please tell me where to look, and consider making them easier to find. Thanks.

Well, I did as you indicated and everything worked so at this point I'm really happy. The system did not show the /dev/sda just sda but I crossed my fingers and pressed apply. Thank you.

Change Controlling Grub to MX-18.1 [SOLVED]

I have two linux systems installed and unfortunately the controlling grub is not MX. Can I change that with one of the MX Tools so that MX controls? Thanks.

Re: MX18 unable to set grub background theme in boot options

I finally did get it to work. In boot options, I should not have checked enabled themes in backgrounds. Also, in my quest to make it work I had checked some advanced settings in Grub Customizer that were a problem. Thanks for all of your help.
