Re: Upgrade question

MX is finally on my PC. Everything was working OK until I modified the Plymouth setting to give me a different boot animation.

Re: Upgrade question

After numerous attempts at modifying the exclusion list I found home/timeshift/snapshots* prevented the Timeshift snapshots from being added to MX Snapshot.
