Re: Please dont let this project spiral down

Rs55: what you are describing is my primary use for snapshot. I rarely have to use it to restore the same system, I am regularly using it to move my customized setup from one laptop to another. Are you saying that the current version of snapshots cannot be used successfully for that purpose? If so I...

Re: MX 17 Repository: The Pale Moon Browser Thread

Palemoon is my primary browser and I love it. However I see that the latest update has done something to break compatibility with my Nextcloud installation (particularly the TASK app). Everything else in Palemoon and Nextcloud work fine for me in Palemoon, but for some reason after the update the Ta...

Re: Tips for Using Dolphin File Manager in MX without converting totally to KDE

FWIW it does appear that the Flatpack download produces the latest version of dolphin (19.04) but the previews don't seem to work any better (or as well) as the locally installed version. Not only that, but the Flatpack version won't let me see or navigated to mounted disk drives other than \Home

Re: Tips for Using Dolphin File Manager in MX without converting totally to KDE

I just listened to a recent Destination Linux and heard that there are lots of new features in the 19.04 release of KDE applications, including one I really want in my business environment -- the ability to preview Microsoft office files in Dolphin: https://dot.kde.org/2019/04/18/kde-applications-19...

Re: REQUEST: Zim Desktop Wiki

1) Michael-IDA as to Zim, I thought this particular section was the place for package / update requests. Maybe I should have started a new thread. 2) I see your signature says you use Trinity in MX-18. Due to another post I installed Q4OS on a test machine this weekend and was impressed with Trinity...

Music Manager ***With Easy Cover Art Embedding to The File Itself***

I hate to start another MP3 player thread, but I have followed this topic for a long time without seeing much focus on a feature I really need: easy cover art searching and embedding **in the mp3 file itself** not just saved to the directory. I have a large collection of mp3's over many years, some ...

Re: MX18 On A Chromebook Acer C720

OK I am back to solved again, this time after checking to be sure that the internet worked. I reinstalled using a re-made MX18 snapshot, but I think the different result has to do with the way I booted it. The first time, I chose the "Boot Maintenance Manager" option and "Boot from file" and then na...

Thanks for advice --- dropping back to 4.19 and then 4.13 makes no difference
