Re: Distrowatch reveiw grumbles

Version: 19-beta2.1 Rating: 7 Date: 2019-09-13 Votes: 0 I like the new fresh look, very very nice. I would have installed if there had been driver for RTL8821CE wireless. At this point I am using Manjajo because AUR has a driver for this wlan chip. I have alvays liked MXlinux but at this point I ha...

Re: Iridium browser install issue

I watched Google Chrome [no addons] vs Iridium Browser [addons] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgPFXbl3QbU and I was stunned at how much data the Chrome browser spews out to third parties as it is used. I use Firefox, but I was curious how Iridium compared to it, so I downloaded it from the stable ...

Re: Distrowatch reveiw grumbles

the "issue" is that the user needed to use hp-setup, which is included on MX and always has been. I found it in the whisker menu when I typed the full "hp-setup" in the search box, but it doesn't seem to have its own entry in the whisker menu. Could one be added so that it could be easily found by ...

Re: Distrowatch reveiw grumbles

Version: 18.3 Rating: 7 Date: 2019-08-28 Votes: 0 Mx does not handle my printer settings correctly while other distros do. Consequently, I do not use it. Has the issue in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyB1SPGaXcw been addressed in MX 19? If not, could the solution put forward in the vi...

Re: Suggestion for MX Tools

Thanks for your replies.

As an afterthought, would enlarged papyrus icons above the text in MX Tools be a worthy idea? I've had a look at the 64x64 icons in MX and they could add a bit more clarity to MX Tools.

Just a thought.

I assume you are familiar with those such as Goggle Drive and Dropbox. There are many others to choose from.
I'm a luddite who has never used them. Is there a simple no-registration website where I can upload the file and post it's URL here?

Suggestion for MX Tools

A couple of nights ago I watched a review of MX 19 beta https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRWKi8n_uDk. At ~6:40 a point is made about MX Tools which I'd given no previous thought to, but now I've seen it I think it is correct, namely MX has a fine set of tools, but its toolbox is sorely neglected and ...

Re: MX-19 Beta 1 Feedback

Sorry for butting in, but I've found something which should be mentioned. If I leave it I'm sure I'll forget. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKVUzScmS00 has a review of MX 19, and at about 6 min it talks about a problem with wireless transfers and how a program installation solves the problem. If t...
