Re: imaging my Windows 7 Pro system, and then running it as a guest on MX Linux via VirtualBox

@Huckleberry, when using GParted, how does the speed compare to using Clonezilla to copy a partition? If it is similar then it is certainly a simpler method.

Thanks for the tip. :)

Re: Interesting changes at manjaro...

I expect that the new (& separate) Manjaro company, has plans to work with partners on releasing hardware to consumers that run the Manjaro OS. I wouldn't be surprised to see, apart from notebooks (there are options in that regard already I think, or at least there have been), a smart phone. Which, ...

Re: How do i network home pcs to reduce maintenance...

Perhaps you could add a Raspberry Pi to the equation, by using it as your very cheap to purchase & run fileserver (& a Foxmarks bookmarks server - that will allow a user to sync their Bookmarks between Firefox based browsers on different devices ON THEIR OWN SERVER - works with Waterfox too! :D ) Th...

Re: MX on iMac?

<3 months ago I installed antiX on a 2007 model intel 24" iMac. It installed surprisingly easily (I'd had some battles in years gone by with other distros. Quite a few years ago now though, they are probably easier to install now too). I did away with OS/X & just run antiX on it. You can't run a mod...

Re: Daily use of MX Linux (and Antix if you use it as well)

I use MX on two machines (the Clevo notebook & a cloned copy of that installed/modified not long ago on my recently obtained from storage (after ~2 years), full tower machine). I've also recently put a custom USB stick - MX, on another machine that I just gave to a friend, as he really needs to get ...

Re: how to make the terminal more or less transparent ?

Terminator has the option in Preferences > Profiles > Background

Not that I've ever used the option.

Re: Genealogy Software

@Handy -- I was never able to get my Personal Ancestral File to work in wine because I kept getting weird character sets indicating that I was having some kind of unicode issue. I looked and looked and saw reference somewhere that I needed the "all languages" edition of PAF in order to get past tha...

Re: Genealogy Software

My father was into it big time. He travelled the world to talk to people (some even came to Oz & stayed with my parents). Anyway, he used Personal Ancestral File (PAF), from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is now discontinued software, though that certainly isn't a deal breaker. ...
