Re: Searching for files in a long list of files, show results in Thunar (not Catfish)

Would you consider using a different file manager? I've been using PCManFM, available from the MX Package Installer in the Popular Applications tab. It has a filter option (shortcut Ctrl-E) which allows displaying only files matching a pattern. So, if you wanted all filenames containing "mario", you...

Re: MX18 package request: xfce4-screensaver

I swear I searched for this before posting, and I didn't get any results. Of course, now I search, and I see it immediately. Sorry for the duplicate request.

MX18 package request: xfce4-screensaver

Sean Davis has released version 0.1.3 of xfce4-screensaver. Would it be possible to get that added to the test repo? I'd like to see if I have better success with it than xscreensaver.

Thank you, DO, for another great video! Despite following the forum, I always manage to pick up something new from these videos.

Re: MX 17 Repository: The qBittorrent Thread

I wonder if it could be related to the version of libtorrent-rasterbar9 in use. I think it is. I had libtorrent-rasterbar9 1.1.7+git20180527.6ec6c1b340+patched-configure1-1~mx17+1 installed. I uninstalled that along with qBittorent using the MX Package Installer. I then installed libtorrent-rasterb...

Re: MX 17 Repository: The qBittorrent Thread

I'm having problems with this package as well. The search tab functions and the window populates, but when the download button is clicked on, the download window pops up and it hangs on retrieving the metadata. Nothing populates in the Transfer tab. If I click on another source in the search tab, a...

Re: MX 17 Repository: The qBittorrent Thread

After qBittorrent was updated to 4.1.3, all the previously listed torrents disappeared. The files are still in the folders. I'm also unable to start new torrents. When I add a link manually, it doesn't appear in the list.

Re: Gnome-keyring - unlocked

I'm about to build a new system anyway, which will hopefully render this whole problem moot since I'll be installing a fresh copy of MX 17.1. I just hate admitting defeat.

Re: Gnome-keyring - unlocked

Yes, I've tried that several times.

Just now, I deleted the entire ~/.local/share/keyrings folder. When I restarted and logged back in, the folder was not created. That's why I think PAM isn't running, or at least isn't running correctly.
