Re: Warning MX Updater

Front end: Gnome is the issue I bet. Gnome is very systemd-centric and MX-17 has systemd disabled by default. You probably changed something... perhaps you chose "enable Gnome services at startup" in your options, or used a PPA or website to get software? I've done exactly those things and had to st...

Re: Libre Office

Whoa! When that happens to me, which is extremely rare by the way, I remove and reinstall using Synaptic Package Manager . Menu -->System -->Synaptic Package Manager. Enter your root ("Administrator") password when asked. Scroll down and find LibreOffice (the whole suite, not just Writer or whatever...

Re: MX being added to a Linux chooser list

Cool! That's how I got started after Windows failed me for the final time. A distro-chooser sent me to Ubuntu. I'm really glad to see MX available on a distro-chooser now! The first time I tried to install MX, the installer confused me so much I got scared off and ran back "home" to my Xubuntu-based...

Re: Canonical Extends Ubuntu Support

Why not, Adrian? If it's awesome, safe, and up-to-date, I wouldn't change anything for 10 years, maybe longer.

Re: MX Cleanup

Would it be possible to have a forum thread which notifies people about MX tools that have been updated or added?
There already is! It's the little green box that indicates updates are available. When you click on it, it lists all the upgrades and new stuff.

Re: Hi!

I used to distro hop here and there, Mint, PCLinuxOS, SalixOS (awesome, simple Slackware-based Xfce distro), three of the 'buntus, LXLE, straight Debian, Linux Lite, and now MX-17, where I've ended up and expect to stay for a long while. Rock-stable, newbie-friendly, simple and safe enough for a tec...

Re: Replace Linux Mint with MX and keep windows dual boot

It's good practice, if you intend to dual boot Windows and any Linux distro, that Windows is installed and fully updated first. Have fun! Mint Xfce is a solid distro, though I think it's way more "bloated" than it needs to be.

Why not install AntiX it is systemd free and easy to install you can always drop xfce on too.
Absolutely a better idea! A lot easier, too.
