Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

Probably not specific to 18 beta, but can't see entries when trying to edit them in Google Contacts (when using dark themes).
Must highlight typed info to see them.

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

Don't want to wear out this issue, but the only thing that happens (appears) after pressing the power button to get out of sleep mode, is the MX18 beta screen.

Need another cup of mojo.

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

Could having no swap partition but only / be the reason sleep mode not working for me?

Re: Trying to install via usb and dvd-rw
