Re: How to revert to another initrd.img

I was able to solve it. I used 'MX Live USB Maker'. Made a live usb with Mx17.1. Ran MX17.1. from the USB. Removed the new 'initrd.img-4.15.0-1-amd64' , renamed the old 'initrd.img-4.15.0-1-amd64.old-dkms' into 'initrd.img-4.15.0-1-amd64' Still on the live MX opened 'MX Boot Repair' and chose 'Reins...

[Solved] How to revert to another initrd.img

When upgrading I got the message:
If next boot fails, revert to initrd.img-4.15.0-1-amd64.old-dkms image
How do I do that? The next boot booted the eeepc but not into MX17. I only got a black screen with a blinking cursor.

Konntest du mit umbenennen und ersetzen deinen Rechner in Mx starten? Mir wurde auch empfohlen to revert to old-dkms. Aber wie?

Re: How to add XF86-eject to the keyboard settings

After installing mx17 all Keys were working out of the box, except for the eject cdrom key. but that was easily enabled via the Keyboard -- Application shortcuts.

add an Application Shortcut

I would like to edit the keyboard settings and add application shortcut keys for the brightness up/ down and light off.
Is there a manual for the right commands and whatever I need to provide?
If there is no manual, what do I need to do?

Re: Printer settings - print quality

Hi Sheng-Chieh,

I can access the CUPS control page. I clicked my way through all taps and options. I might be wrong, but it doesn't give the option to change the print quality.

Re: Libqt5printsupport5

The upgrade worked, the system seems to be fine, I didn't experience any problems. But maybe I requested the wrong package or I missed something, because I still cannot open the properties (see #5 of Printer settings - print quality https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php?p=415282#p415282 ) I though...
