Re: MX-18

Why not just repackage 17.1_November as "18" (or maybe even "19") for the "greater Linux community" and MX newbies, and continue to field 17.1 monthly updates for the rest of us?

Re: How to install Software Center?

I have found (if the shoe fits, wear it) that those who gloss over, or complain about, MX-PI have never bothered to seriously use it.

Re: Replace Linux Mint with MX and keep windows dual boot

You might want to try Sparky's MinimalGUI (which is Openbox), and then install the DE of your choice.

Re: Replace Linux Mint with MX and keep windows dual boot

Why don't you just split the 100GB Linux Mint partition into 60GB for Mint, and a 40GB unallocated space using gParted? And install MX to the 40GB? That way, MX can "piggy-back" onto Mint's uefi setup.

Re: Makeuseof review

After using Linux exclusively for a number of years it is hard to put myself in a windows users mindset. Using Linux since around 2002 I think it was. I just don't think like that anymore.

root Thunar menu option

Been using iterations of MX since January 2016. Along with continuation of non-updated Win7SP1 (didn't like wading through Micro$oft's upgrade to Win10 nagware, so I turned updates off 2 years ago). My main gripe is the lack of a root version of Thunar that is easily accessible (for transferring or ...

Re: Which kernel should I use ?

In light of recent revelation that NSA's security algorithm was incorporated into 4.17, 18, & 19, but will be removed in 20, I'd wait until a stable version of 4.20 came out!
