Re: MX Linux forum is googlized

I guess it could be particularly useful for unanswered questions in "foreign" sub-forums. Though, TBH, I only allow scripts on a handful of sites that otherwise wouldn't function, and this isn't one of them, so I don't see the widget anyway ;)

Re: Nuke a SSD - Dban will not work on a SSD

There's similar info about clearing the Memory Cells on Arch Wiki. Also Parted Magic has a Disk Erase Utility that handles SSDs (select the Internal option). (<-- I forgot that you had to pay for it ;) )

I guess the crude way to do it would be to physically disconnect my internal hard drives, connect the external drive, boot from live flash drive, and run boot repair?

[...] On that note, MXPI doesn't like going to Debian Backports. When you click the Backports tab, it does some processing and then immediately without any message, flips back to the popular apps tab. This may not help, but... I had a similar problem with MX17 a couple of years ago - it would jump ...

Speaking of notification area, there is still crowding and overlapping going on.
Same here - seems like the Notification Area (System Tray) isn't expanding more than 4 icon widths, so others get squashed and are behind others

Needed acpi_backlight=vendor etc to fix on Nvidia-based Laptop What's the "etc" part? Is this boot parameter something that needs to go in the Manual/Wiki?
