Re: Calling for submissions - MX18 wallpapers

Well, why not just post it on the Community page anyway, for consideration? It might be chosen or not for MX18; but your pic might appeal to some members. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll do that. I was just going by what was chosen in the past. The idea is to move the MX product forward. So, it's b...

Re: Calling for submissions - MX18 wallpapers

Great job. Cool wallpaper. Thanks. This is the fave background of my colleagues at the office -- mostly because I took it with my phone. In post processing, I added the more painterly aspects to give it an Ansel Adams sort of look. But again, it's way too location specific for distribution. You kin...

Re: Calling for submissions - MX18 wallpapers

All my background pix are way too location specific for MX, but I thought you'd get a kick out of this one. The luxurious penthouse offices of MX! Haha. Complete with the old-school logo on the building cornice sign. i_was_a_kid_once.jpg Did you make that pic yourself? That statue of Pinocchio is r...

Re: WinFF app is using VP8 codec not latest VP9

Experimentation. Yes! That's the spirit. :-) I don't use the defaults of g and specify levels this way. I just use the default levels for most things especially H.264, H.265. My fave feature of ffmpeg is the constant quality controls, and it has something new called "constrained" constant quality. R...

Re: WinFF app is using VP8 codec not latest VP9

I wonder if that could be related to WinFF's age. I believe the latest release is 1.5.5 and that was Jun 2017. Edit: I checked the preset for Google Webm Generic Widescreen. It reads: -f webm -aspect 16:9 -vcodec libvpx -g 120 -level 216 -profile:v 0 The correct ffmpeg vcodec argument for VP9 is lib...

Re: MX and Devuan?

...that alone would be reason to avoid a relationship, to my mind... @manyroads, actually I was puzzled by your OP because MX is based on antiX, which is where we get the super fast and light base from. Why would you ask MX, whose roots and connections are with Mepis then antiX (which also started ...

There is also that Gimp plugin whose name I can't remember ATM.
Are you thinking of "bimp"? Lets you do batch operations like resizing and such on a group of files.

It's in our repositories. Search for:

Re: Looking for shortcut to full disk encryption

Is this what you are talking about? Yeah, you could do it during installation. I had to do it manually afterwards because the installer failed during setup on my NVMe drive Tablet. But it's no biggie because it's just 1 command, and took moments. I don't think you will notice any difference. It's s...

Re: Looking for shortcut to full disk encryption

To save my time, I'd like to ask if anyone can think of a way to make this work or a reason why it will never work? At some point, it's going to be faster to do it manually. :rolleyes: But I've recently done this sort of thing, and the possible screwups are many. Forgive me if you've already dismis...
