Re: RESOLVED - MX Tools Panel Missing After Update

This often happen to me. The desktop area is larger than my screen (Dell 5567). Solution is to logout (Ctrl+Alt Backspace), and login again.

Re: Nautilus tags [SOLVED]

Package tracker-miner-fs was missing.
Tracker works independently. Nautilus is not needed. Manage tags by running "tracker-needle".

# sudo apt-get install tracker tracker-gui tracker-miner-fs

Works well, except lot of USB text/info during the boot. Is there a way to clean up?
