uh oh, GHOSTBUSTERS r back ---new terminal weirdness

Started up my MX-15 KDE today, the MX Apt Notifier said there were three updates to do, I clicked on it and then was faced with this. Went upstairs to another machine, also with MX-15 KDE, same thing showed. But...well...both machines, this overall weird terminal-associated crap has started again. H...

Re: did I goof? or did MX-KDE ghostbusters visit me??

Hi all, Thanks for the responses. First off, yes, I had "googled" this. Second, is it possible there is confusion/misunderstanding about the MX ROOT terminal application inside MX_Linux from the menu? Mainly this: AS A USER YOU DO NOT HAVE THE OPTION TO TYPE IN "SU", "SUDO", "KDESU" OR "GKSU" WHEN O...

Re: did I goof? or did MX-KDE ghostbusters visit me??

Can't the problem be that you're starting a GUI app (dolphin) from a terminal without using gksu? Usually fills up the terminal with lots of junk. Henry Henry, Sure, that may be true in another Linux OS, where you need to run either gksu or kdesu or put the infamous "i" after sudo. But in this case...

Re: did I goof? or did MX-KDE ghostbusters visit me??

Stevo, Yes, it's your KDE respin (which I like very much). Ok, I'll defer to your wisdom here and tell me what you think: I wonder if this is the reason that what happened actually did happen? I opened a fresh "root" terminal, entered my passphrase, the root terminal popped open, and then I immediat...

did I goof? or did MX-KDE ghostbusters visit me??

Hi all, Last week switched from regular MX-15 and went to the full KDE MX-15 desktop. Been using it a few days, really like it. Then today, I thought I'd run from the root terminal "APT-GET UPDATE && APT-GET UPGRADE".....just to check that the actual software updater inside MX is/was working. I've n...

MX-15 May64 snapshot apt-get 404 error

Hi all, At the risk of getting shot here (given my usb "root" false alarm yest & today), I just wanted to let you all know if you install the MX-15 May64 snapshot, and then the update icon pops up and you go to do all the updates, it will "cancel" or refuse (also does this in synaptic too). Here's a...
