Re: The MX-17 conkies

The colors are fine just the way they are.
My eyes are 74 years old, read not to good, and I use the dark background and the transparency is great.
I did open MX Conky and tried playing with the colors and when closed, I had to push the start button until it shut down. Lots and lots of errors.

Re: Live USB Snapshot MX x64 October 2017 No Wifi Detected

Code: Select all

# wl module from Broadcom conflicts with the following modules:
blacklist b43
blacklist b43legacy
blacklist b44
blacklist bcma
#blacklist brcm80211
#blacklist brcmsmac
blacklist ssb
blacklist wl
The # tells it to skip that item in the blacklist.
