Re: MX-17/18 Repository: The Thunderbird Thread

Did you clear out you .cache folder? I have had several odd problems in the past ( I use one .thunderbird folder linked to 18 different distros/variations) and clearing out the thunderbird folder within my .cache folder cleared them up.

Re: MX command line

Colin The command "history -c" clears your history in the current shell, but when you exit bash, the history is saved to the history file, which by default is .bash_history in your home directory. So if you open another terminal, all your commands will show up. You can clear your current term with "...

Re: LXQt and KDE respins - personal projects

Installed fuseiso - NG (there was nothing wrong with the snapshot iso that was created, I copied it out from the KDE VM to the main/host system and could create a live usb with it).

I downloaded your newest KDE. Installed in Virtualbox. Updated and made a snapshot. When I tried to make a live usb, it found my usb, I selected the iso, hit next and it looped back to selecting an iso. That's as far as it would go.

Re: Youtube-DLG errors out

I started having problems a little while ago, using Firefox as my browser that I copied the URL from and pasted into YouTube-DL GUI. Switched to Waterfox and it seems to work. Got a download error a couple of times, but it downloaded.

Re: Firefox doesn't bookmark

In your home folder look for .cache a hidden folder. Go in it and if you find a mozilla folder, delete it. Then try again with your new install of firefox.

Re: Combine Several .doc Files to One?

NevilsStation That won't work. The unix/linux commands like cat work with plain text files .Your .doc files have many many format commands included that can't be handled. To see, try to open one of your .doc files in featherpad. You will have to cut/paste the contents of each .doc file into one new ...
