Re: Update to PIA VPN

I didn't update, & won't, until I read that they will support non systemd distros. (Which makes sense don't you think?) ;) Which is something that I think may be unlikely, as the majority rules (systemd distros); it will cost PIA money to write more code for a much smaller user base. I certainly hop...

Re: MX Linux vs Debian

There exist other distros that have really friendly & helpful communities/forums too; that welcome new users with "new user" friendly forums, & wikis that are superior to that of MX as well. We all use what suits our needs/desires. When we find something else that does a better job, or our needs/des...

Re: shotcut ne s'ouvre pas

All you multilingual dudes put me to shame... ;)

Re: Spying Browsers?

@PondLIfe, thanks. That works for me too. :) Also, in my previous post I mentioned that the colours & contrast were exceptionally crisp. That actually isn't so much due to Iridium as the different default settings that came with the Dark Reader extension. An extension that I use to make create dark ...

Re: Spying Browsers?

I've basically just finished setting up Iridium. It has some good privacy settings listed & the defaults are much better than I'm used to seeing (it still "had" Bing in the search engine list, but at least Qwant was set as default). I've installed all of my usual "privacy" extensions, though I know ...

Re: Spying Browsers?

@ChrisUK, thanks for your reply. I read that you can turn off the sandbox & it works. I just copied your command into the terminal & iridium started up. It complained about the sandbox not being used & said that both stability & security may suffer. At least the security part of that was obvious fro...

Re: Spying Browsers?

I looked at Brave Browser back in its early days. I posted some questions re. its protection of privacy in a particular area (which of course I've forgotten now) & they wouldn't answer me on that problem. Whereas they were very good at answering everything else. So I dumped Brave, deciding that it w...

Re: Spying Browsers?

Due to the error that I get (as per my previous post) when I try to run the irridium-browser installed from the MX repo's, are there any problems or warning that those who know would pass on re. installing the irridium-browser as per this page on their site: https://iridiumbrowser.de/downloads/debia...
