Re: Transfer Windows 8 installation to a new drive

IIRC, PartedMagic integrates clonezilla (at least) into it's offering for cloning, besides lot's of other very usefull tools. Very good toolset-box live linux distro, highly recommended! It is good but it costs ~50 bucks. Not worth it if you just want to use Clonezilla occasionally. This reminds me...

There was quite a lot of discussion about this when ssd's (at a reasonable price) came into use. Trim is also explained in the MX User Manual - section 3.1.5.
So many problems would be solved and questions avoided if people would actually read manuals.

Re: Package request - MusE sequencer

@MisterZ MusE was mainly for a request to add it to my MXStudio unofficial respin. I managed to make a drum track in it so far but want to test it a bit more. I use Audacious and Qtractor already and have licences for Reaper and Harrison Mixbus. Hopefully will get a handle on MIDI tracks and composi...

Re: ssd trim

I have never needed to check atime on my personal computer so always set noatime anyway. Modification times are still written whenever a file changes.

Re: Transfer Windows 8 installation to a new drive

I migrated a Windows install to a new Samsung SSD recently for a friend. Samsung's Data Migration Software worked perfectly. I recommend it for a Samsung SSD but not sure if it would work otherwise.

-Cosmetic bug, conky background has different color vs. the wallpaper
In KDE I found it necessary to set

Code: Select all

own_window_type = 'dock'
rather than the usual "normal" or "desktop". May be the same in LXQt.
Just a wild guess. ;)

I got only 500 downloads in total, so probably it's not worth constantly maintaining this, but it was easy to do, so maybe I will do that again in a couple of month.
My studio respin got 17 downloads so far. ;) I've already got some nice improvements for a new release soon.
