Re: Vivaldi is a great browser, here are some tips

Thanks guys. :) I changed the Manjaro to MX in that command line for testing whether Vivaldi was set as the default browser or not. I've got a couple on Firefox though I'm not sure just how up to date they are with the current changes that Mozilla keep foisting on the Firefox community. I'll get aro...

Vivaldi is a great browser, here are some tips

This was a wiki page that I wrote some time ago for Manjaro. It has been updated multiple times, once again for this post & hopefully modified appropriately to suit MX17. Please let me know of any distro specific or other errors so that I can remedy them? Note: I censor G**gle due to my resentment ...

Re: Vivaldi & H.264/MP4 (MP3 too I think) & libffmpeg.so

nathan2423, I love the Vivaldi browser. : :number1: This thread is focused on a problem that effects at least some of us. (Providing some different ways to save the same problem.) & really, it doesn't effect me at all, since I put the later version of the libffmpeg.so file in a place that won't get ...

Re: Vivaldi & H.264/MP4 (MP3 too I think) & libffmpeg.so

Vivaldi-stable update yesterday. I just checked to see if it upgraded the /opt/vivaldi/lib/libffmpeg.so It did not. No surprises there. The later (needed) version of the library that I had sitting in /opt/vivaldi/ survived (as did the same version of the file that I still have sitting in ~/local/lib...

Re: MX and Devuan?

Like most things in this world there seems to be a lot of strong opinion on systemd (good, bad, ugly...) Like @handy noted in his comment, I include myself in the uniquely skilled at breaking OSes class of user. I was simply curious re: Devuan because on the surface it seems there might be an oppor...

Re: MX and Devuan?

Touch wood, My Devuan install trashed itself on me, prior to moving to Refracta, which did the same, before coming to MX17, which has been holding up to my abuse incredibly well. (After saying that I'm glad so say that I have a recent Clonezilla backup image. ;) )
