Re: MX-19 Beta 2.1 Feedback

"you can keep clicking next while the copy is going on...no need to wait." I didn't know that... I learn something every day... (I forget stuff too) "It is explained in the User Manual that you can input data and make selections whilst the installation is proceeding." Hey, manuals, I've heard of the...

Re: MX-19 Beta 2.1 Feedback

Question - but not really a problem. Did anyone else find it a bit "odd" during install that the progress bar gets tp 90-something percent and then it looks like it just hangs until you read the bar which says it's waiting for user input, BUT you have to click the Next button to get to the screen wh...

Re: MX-19 Beta 1 Feedback

OK, I've been using MX-19b1 for nearly a week now as my daily driver and I have to say, apart from 2 small maybe errors in the installer, it's given me no problems at all. My usage probably isn't the most rigorous, poke all the corners, test all the features testing, just my daily tasks. I have it n...

Post Install - Adding My Common Packages

I don't know if this will be of interest to anyone else, but as someone who has a number of machines, and tries out different distros for fun (MX remains my default but seeing what others are doing is interesting) I got fed up of manually installing my commonly used packages. I expect there are vari...

Re: Update to PIA VPN

Oh, and I deleted the .pia whatever directory via the file manager, not "old school" but far less likely that old fumble fingers here will screw up an "rm -rf" command and end up crying like a... whatever cries

Re: Update to PIA VPN

I found this page on PIA's support page helpful https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/helpdesk/guides/linux/linux/linux-installing-openvpn-through-the-terminal I got this working (with I assume the latest version). I normally use just a handful of servers, the UK ones naturally) and a couple in the ...

Re: What init system do you use on MX, the default (sysVinit) or systemd?

1) The default works just fine 2) Systemd works just fine too, or loads of other distros wouldn't be using it, but 3) I worry about anything that burrows it's way so deeply into into so many parts of the system 4) Call me old fashioned, but I still think the original Unix idea of small, apps or prog...

Re: Problem with KeePassXC

I've been using the keepassxc from the test repo for ages and it works fine with the .kdbx file have. I have copies of the database file on several machines with 5 or so distros on partitions on them as long as it's either keepassx or keepassxc they have in their repos
