REQUEST: Zim Desktop Wiki

The version in the Debian repo is quite old. In fact, so old, that some things are not compatible with the current version. Since I sync notebooks via Dropbox with other OS, I cannot use Zim on MX at the moment.

Re: Installing MX17.1 on a Dell XPS 15?

So, boot the USB stick in legacy mode, then install MX to hard disk (will this install it to UEFI?), and then reboot from disk, but first change to UEFI boot and disable Secure Boot? No. Get into the BIOS (actually it's now called the EFI), set it to UEFI Mode and disable Secure Boot. Also set the ...

Installing MX17.1 on a Dell XPS 15?

Hi there, did anyone successfully install MX on an XPS 15 yet? This is the first device I encountered that has UEFI. I installed Linux on machines with a normal bios hundreds of times, but I just don't seem to grasp this new UEFI stuff. First of all, I can only make MX boot, if I switch to legacy mo...

Hibernate does not work

Hibernate does not work in MX 17.1 (on an Asus 1005HA). It just activates the xscreensaver and asks for a password.

Re: Touchpad two finger right-click

I installed it. It kind of worked. It detects the right click after I double tap AND move the mouse. But when I clicked on the new icon in the task bar (in order to close it again), MX froze entirely. So I will uninstall this indicator again (after rebooting).

Touchpad two finger right-click

Hi there,

it would be great if the mouse settings would allow to set a right-click to a two finger tap (just like in other OS).

Right now, two finger tap does nothing.

Re: booting with uefi?

Turning off secure boot did not help unfortunately. I will try to download MX again on my Windows machine, install Rufus and create the USB again.

Re: booting with uefi?

Like this: https://business.tutsplus.com/tutorials ... -cms-21253

Unetbootin unfortunately never creates bootable sticks for me (I tried several times, with several distros, they are never detected by any machine, whether uefi or not).
