Re: Difficulty Installing Mx Linux on a Mintbox Mini 2 Pro

I think it's just a branded version of Compulab fitlet2 PC so should have legacy support according to this page (I looked it up because I was considering buying one). http://www.fit-pc.com/wiki/index.php/FAQ:fitlet2 1. Advanced -> CSM Configuration -> CSM Support : [Enabled] 2. Advanced -> CSM Confi...

Re: Dedoimedo review of MX-18

The difference between 0 and 10 is spelled "Xfce"! Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa Cinnamon - score 0 Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa Xfce - score 10 No matter what I tried, Rosa Xfce handled it gracefully, with speed and elegance. This warrants a perfect score. It's been a while, but we're back in the game. 10/10. Rosa ...

Re: Dedoimedo review of MX-18

We do all of that and more: the Most Extensive Live-usb on the Planet! Nice useful info, thanks. My plan is to free my software from being tied to specific hardware. I'm tired of maintaining multiple installations. Internal disk space can be used as storage space for files that aren't important. If...

Re: Dedoimedo review of MX-18

Dedoimedo is sensitive about the live session and that the live session should save changes made. I think this is an odd opinion. Most people "play" in live-mode before installing. Then when they install they expect the distro to be in mint (untouched) condition. So if live changes are to be saved, ...

A shoutout to lz4

I was making snapshots with lzo compression. It took about an hour with one processor core. ISO size around 2,7 GB. Then I decided to try lz4 instead. Amazing speed, an hour became not much more than 6 minutes, so almost a 90 % reduction of ISO creation time. ISO size went from 2,7 to 3,2 GB. I thin...

Re: "Raleigh" theme makes volume meter invisible

If we look in /usr/share/themes/Raleigh/ we see that Raleigh doesn't have a GTK3 theme so this theme will only work for GTK2 applications and QT applications which get their theming from GTK2. Raleigh simply never got ported to GTK3. Install the package mate-themes to get a few more compatible themes.

Re: I've noticed that the MX forum is as busy as the Manjaro forum

My fancy xps-13 laptop came with Windows pre-installed. I wanted to keep it to test dual booting. The first thing it did was ask for my wireless password, which, like a fool, I gave it. It immediately updated itself and broke the wireless driver. The machine had no RJ45 connector and I had no RJ45 ...

Re: I've noticed that the MX forum is as busy as the Manjaro forum

NOTE that you said WAS. Way back when Linux was command line mostly I wager it sure was. I wouldn't know.. I never experienced it.. but then again.. I went from Atari 1040ST to Windows, so the transition wasn't hard. No there were repositories. but to give you an idea of the time frame, I installed...
