FI: For my the better way, and easy way
I don't remember what I did back then, but it's been working fine ever since. I made a lot of mistakes in the beginning, so it probably was one of those that caused the problem.

Thanks,
Paul

Re: New user says thank you MX-18

I think you can clone the running system, but I didn't try that nor I think is recommended, what I meant is installing clonezilla app on a persistency-enabled (or remastered) MX Live USB and boot from that. Ah, I see. I misunderstood. Yes, that is an option, and it will actually boot faster than a ...

Re: New user says thank you MX-18

for system backups I manually boot to Clonezilla and clone the entire disk. You can also install clonezilla app on MX and run it form it, no need for running a unfamiliar distro just for that. Conezilla has some extra stuff I think if you use servers and netimages but for cloning a disk the program...

Re: New user says thank you MX-18

Truly a great distro. I do break things on occasion, though, and I've learned the usefulness of taking periodic system backups, plus daily user file backups. This way I can be back up and running in under an hour. There are tools under MX Tools on the Menu, but for system backups I manually boot to ...

Could you try the Appimage from clipgrab.org to see if it has the same problem?
Just gave the appimage, 3.8.2, a try. Just as slow as the repo's 3.7.2. Then I trotted out yt-dl, and it tore through the download in no time.

Seems to be a longstanding problem, at least for some.

Afraid the glacial speed was not an anomaly. Happened again, two attempts. Then used youtube-dl and it took a few seconds to complete.

I'll try to give that a try tomorrow.

Re: WPS Office

I liked WPS, but I need macro support so I decided to stick with LO. WPS also has a TOC that seems to limit the free Linux edition to domestic (ie, China) hardware and software: (3)If this Software is a WPS Office version for Linux OS, the following apply: 1) You are only entitled to install and use...

Re: MX 17/18 Repository: The ClipGrab Thread

My first download with it seemed very slow, but maybe that was an anomaly. Evidently the slow download was an anomaly. Just did a sizable download and the speed was fine. I'm going to start using this instead of youtube-dl. Easier to use and does the job nicely. I voted that they should add the abi...

Re: MX 17/18 Repository: The ClipGrab Thread

Thanks. This is quite good. Just had a friend ask me about videos and I recommended it. My first download with it seemed very slow, but maybe that was an anomaly.
