Re: More from Dedo

And at some point, the forum members will probably suggest that you install a newer MX release. And as long as it doesn't require to buy new hardware, I think it's the least worst solution ;) I think latest MX (even the 64bit) runs or hardware people trashed 3 years ago... My MX 64 bits runs on a s...

Using Google Calendar with Rambox

hi. Just sharing a quick tip: despite not liking Google, I use their e-mail and calendar services. If you want to use Google Calendar in Linus there are several options (one being using Thunderbird). A not too resource intensive option is using Rambox, a multi Messaging app, that even has a Appimage...

WPS 11.x - available in Package Installer & How-to change language UI if installed via .deb

Hi, I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but, on some forum threads people talked about WPS as an alternative Office suite to LibreOffice. Because it's closed source I know it won't be added to the repository and someone said it could be added to the Package Installer, like some o...

Re: WPS Office [INFEASIBLE]

Just as a warning to anyone like me who likes WPSOffice in part because of its traditional toolbar interface, I just downloaded and installed version 11 and it appears that the toolbar interface option is gone, and the size of the download is almost doubled to boot. So I guess I will stay with the ...

Re: Distrowatch reveiw grumbles

Hi! Sorry if this is a (quite a) bit off topic- I'm not talking about a "distrowatch review". My native language is portuguese and I recently saw, a MX review on a brasilian tech Youtube channel- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FwzYZ-jCGNM As far I as know it's not subbed in english... What got my ...

Re: Distrowatch reveiw grumbles

@ anticapitalista: I was oversimplifying in my remarks about that particular review- in a way you can say that "frugal install" and "remaster/persistence" and "snapshot" are "tools", even if not "MX tools" the reviewer mentioned... and I would say tools, that someone, for example, used to Win10 woul...

Re: [SOLVED] Updating antiX

@Klaas Vaak- I know this post is marked as ""solved"- in fact in antiX you don't get update notices (not out of the box), but I automated the updating and upgrading process with a script over at https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=48644 Let me know if you want to try that script but are h...

Whisker menu icon changed after doing updates

Hi, everyone I don't know if it's just me, but today I had over 100 updates to do. I clicked the MX updater icon and after the updates I rebooted (my printer wasn't working after a cups update) and I noticed whisker menu button was changed from the usual "X" one to the default whisker menu (a small ...
