Re: Recommendations on password manager

I use the password manager in Firefox which has always worked well for me. It's the only part of the Firefox browsers that the developers at Mozilla haven't broken yet. Fine if you will never leave your computer unattended - saved logins are readable to anyone who knows where to look in 'preference...

Re: Love MX but it freezes to often

Re: Window buttons drag and drop

The one thing I would suggest would be to call the option in MX Tweak "Configure Window Buttons on Panel". I have to admit I never bothered to click on or even explore the Window Buttons because I thought it was referring to the Max/Min/Close buttons found in each window! +1 that ... I thought so t...

Re: mx-17 freezing

Do you have a SWAP partition enabled? Please report anything you find Memtest showed no problems, but launching gParted showed that I had the 6GB partition which I had intended as the swap but it was not marked 'linux-swap' and so obviously was not enabled. I now have an enabled swap partition and ...

Re: mx-17 freezing

Thanks all, you are right I did not know about the ctrl+alt+esc option, I think though, entire keyboard was locked up. I seem to remember that the last time it locked like this was also when I was going through photos, so I just checked to see whether nomacs launches multiple instances on repeated h...

[solved] mx-17 freezing

I have been using exclusively ( and enjoying MX ) for a month now, but 2 or 3 times it has freezed up and left me no alternative but to press the power-button. The latest event was tonight. I was in Nomacs paging through photos in my dropbox folder when it suddenly froze. At the same time in the bac...
