Re: Distrowatch reveiw grumbles

There isn't a perfect Linux Distro for the Desktop - unless all of the hardware manufacturers suddenly support Linux as they do Windows, and all devs from every distro get together and create a unified Linux Distro, there never will be... IMHO (I'm not saying this can or should happen) But, MX Linux...

Re: mx linux mate 17.1 tested for release

Maybe there's some confusion due to translation, but the link to a Warez site in post #4 doesn't bode well here...

Re: MX Linux saves the day for a Linux Mint user.

For future reference...

Most Distros (especially Debian-based like Mint) don't remove the old kernel when adding/updating a new one - the previous kernel should be accessible from the Grub menu under "Advanced options". So if it happens again, just boot from the old kernel ;)

Re: How to boot an ISO from grub menu?

Assuming you've not fixed it yet: I was playing with booting a Siduction iso from Grub a while back... the following seemed to work: menuentry "Siduction grub_iso" --class dvd { set isofile="/miso/siduction-18.1.0-patience-xfce-amd64-201712310104" set dri="free" search --no-floppy -f --set=root $iso...

Re: Distrowatch reveiw grumbles

A quick fix (well, workaround) for a Black Screen on resume is to switch to a TTY and then TTY7 (or maybe TTY8). So CTRL-ALT-F1 then CTRL-ALT-F7... no need for a hard reset or REISUB. IME, it only happens with the older Kernels (4.9 and earlier)... changing to a later Kernel fixes the problem, but c...

Re: List of initial packages (.manifest file) ?

This may, or may not be useful to someone: That list could be used to compare with currently installed packages - so you could install your custom packages after a fresh install So if you was to do: dpkg --get-selections > packages.lst and then strip out everything after the first space after each p...

Re: Last chance for MX

If it was me, I'd wait to see if the devs here can sort it out for you... you'll be lucky to get this sort of direct help from devs in any other forum (well, excluding Jerry in the Linux Lite forum ;) ). But, of those you've mentioned, Linux Mint and Linux Lite stand out - I've used both in the past...

Thanks, I rely mostly on luck and patience... you, however, appear to have some talent - the colourful Parrot in your wallpaper thread is particularly striking.

Re: Wildlife wallpapers

Another pic of the adult male Sparrowhawk - different time of year... and the bird is now about 6 years old. Higher res image on main website - taken through window again, so uncertain if OK on larger screens
