Re: Cisco Anyconnect VPN

One vpnc package is usually required by openconnect. Is the vpnc-scripts package installed?

Re: Cisco Anyconnect VPN

You need to install openconnect and network-manager-openconnect-gnome. sudo apt install openconnect network-manager-openconnect-gnome (it might be in MXPI somewhere... but I've never used it.) and after a logout/login, there should be an option under NetworkManager (where the wifi/wired net icon is)...

Re: Adding to the /etc/hosts file <resolved>

Yeah, definitely use the one that comes with antiX/MX. I wrote the one on GitHub for stuff like openSUSE and Arch and Debian that aren't blessed with such an /etc/hosts generator already.

Re: Live MX-18 image on USB fails to boot on iMac

I'm running MX-18 32bit (updated from 17.1) on a really old (2006) MacBookPro 1,1. Works like a champ, and I don't remember having any trouble installing it.

Re: Wow, fancy that. Web ad giant Google to block ad-blockers in Chrome. For safety, apparently

Hosts file blocking is what I used in the dark ages and afaik it still works. This one seems well-maintained, was updated yesterday: https://someonewhocares.org/hosts/ I have a script for this: https://github.com/bigbenaugust/make_hosts that I have used for many distros.

Re: ​What's the most popular Linux of them all?

I agree, I wonder how the other world RedHat/Fedora is going to fare under IBM and under the competition pressure from Ubuntu... I have wondered the same thing. I tend to think that with the Red Hat/Fedora/CentOS eco-system IBM will do very well in the data center business. It makes me wonder if Ub...

Re: Atom editor

Of course you shouldn't install any random piece of junk deb from the interwebs. But in this case, Atom comes from GitHub themselves. Slack is another one where I just get the official deb, do the install, and get on to real work.
