Re: Sound Is Infrequently Dead After Returning From Suspend

Well it didn't work, Stevo. Rather, it completely breaks suspend (won't suspend at all). I usually suspend by simply closing the lid of my laptop and it too me a while to realize suspend wasn't working at all :duh: nor does it work from the shutdown menu. I removed the /etc/pm/config.d file and at l...

Re: Sound Is Infrequently Dead After Returning From Suspend

The procedure I use to automatically unload my wi-fi driver at suspend and reload at resume seems like it should also work for your sound driver: https://mxlinux.org/wiki/networking/wifi-suspend-issues/ Thanks for the tip, Stevo. I did it. The procedure doesn't seem to have hurt anything. Time will...

Sound Is Infrequently Dead After Returning From Suspend

I've had this problem ever since installing MX-17 RC1 (currently dist-upgraded to current MX-18). Perhaps once every 10 or 15 times on the average, I lose sound after a suspend ("sleep"). I usually experience the problem when returning to watch a video in Firefox (or since the Firefox cert bug fiasc...

Re: Waterfox Migration (For Firefox add-ons certificate bug refugees)

Maybe this will help: https://www.reddit.com/r/waterfox/comments/b7hb40/bookmarks_issues/ Thanks, JeffA. That seems to have cleared up the few troubles I was experiencing and the "Verify Integrity" button now works too. It seems to have fixed my bookmarks, but apparently I'll have to re-enter any a...

Re: Waterfox Migration (For Firefox add-ons certificate bug refugees)

<snip> Anyway, when I got to the machine again recently, pushing 7 years later, I found that I could boot from a USB stick. :D & that I could install antiX on it & now it is all of those good things better than it ever was (so much quicker too). My wife's Mac is an aluminium unibody MacBook from 20...

Re: Waterfox Migration (For Firefox add-ons certificate bug refugees)

Keep in mind that the Waterfox in the MX repo, as elsewhere, is 64-bit only. 32-bit users do get Pale Moon, also in our main repo. Thanks, Stevo! I'd not thought about that, even though I boot an old 32-bit Atom netbook with 32-bit MX occasionally. At least Mozzila.org says 66.0.4 is being pushed t...

Re: Thunar - deleted file sometimes doesn't disappear

When I delete or move a few files in Thunar, it often happens that one of them (seems to be always only just one) still exists there as a "ghost" despite not existing anymore. Simply refreshing with F5 removes it correctly but I have been misled many times by this behavior. Maybe the following fix ...

Re: Waterfox Migration (For Firefox add-ons certificate bug refugees)

In the interest of being "fair and balanced" and believing that Linux OS users should do their own research and make up their own minds, I also submit for your consideration:
