Re: pdfedit

Thanks to you all for this thread. :) I've been reading an oldie but goodie, free pdf book called The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot . Michael unfortunately died at a far too young an age, a few years after publishing the book. This likely explains why the book is available for free these da...

Re: Update to PIA VPN

I only noticed yesterday in a post by richb, where he mentioned as an aside that the dev's had made the PIA-VPN client work on MX without systemd. :D So I PM'd him & asked if all I had to do was delete the old version & install the new package. He said yes, & to use the mx-packageinstaller "Popular ...

Re: Systemd free MX19?

I've got antiX running on an old 24" iMac & (with my custom Openbox setup) it is barely distinguishable from my MX setup. There are likely some tools that one has that the other doesn't, though I don't really know as I have hardly ever used any of them. MX & antiX are both very good Linux distros (w...

Re: Systemd free MX19?

The systemd shenanigans over on the Arch forum back in the days after it became known that Arch was going that way. Followed by the ongoing fights & disrespect shown by many (but not all) Arch forum staff to those that disagreed with the "new" path, all combined to drive me away from Arch. (I was in...

Re: Waterfox Migration (For Firefox add-ons certificate bug refugees)

I don't have a problem with bookmarks. I imported an HTML file backup from another browser & the bookmark structure was maintained. I've also told WF to use the menu bar so I can access my bookmarks (& the other stuff) from the menu across the top. I'm old fashioned like that... :)

Re: Waterfox Migration (For Firefox add-ons certificate bug refugees)

I very recently dug out an old 2007 24" iMac (first of the aluminium jobs), that has not been used since 2012. It used to run Arch & later on Manjaro. The Sony optical drive failed (apple wanted a fortune for the part at the time, like $600- ! & they wouldn't sell the part, I would have had to pay t...

Re: USB backup drive not mounting at startup

If the above help doesn't work, try installing udiskie , as it has been automounting USB drives/partitions for me for years now. If you have to call it from an autostart file (like I do with Openbox) then do it like this: udiskie -nt (The n calls notification, & the t calls the tray icon.) You may o...

Re: Problems with mounting and automounting USB and SD card

I use udiskie on both antiX & MX (not using systemd on either). It is quick & very easy to use. I always run Openbox, & call udiskie in the ~/.config/openbox/autostart file with the following command: udiskie -nt That gives notification when automounting & also provides a tray icon (for Tint2 in my ...
