Re: MX audiophile tips and tricks

I use Audacious to play music and a couple of its effects (output > effects) have worked for me. Crystalizer set to 0.3 adds a bit of fairy dust to the top end without making things sound too sharp. Extra Stereo set to 1.5 doesn't really add to the stereo effect, but I have found it does add more pu...

Trace - online tracking protection

After reading through the thread on spying browsers https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=48426&hilit=spying+browsers I decided to quit using Chromium based browsers. Since MX comes with Firefox I decided to see if I could make it look and work as I want via theming and add-ons. FF may not o...

Can´t install in EFI even that it is boot in UEFI.

In installation no partition is under /boot when you choose were things vill be installed.

Works fine in both Slackware and Arch Linux, but not in MX Linux.

Re: mp3 gain - normalize audio

It sets the output level tags for Replay Gain via its "Replay Gain Tool."

When the audio files are played with software which supports Replay Gain the track volume levels are normalized during playback when it is enabled.
