Re: MX-19 Beta 2.1 Feedback

Guys, I may have overlooked the information but can't find it. Will the beta automatically update to the final version when released? (I expect so).

Re: Migrating MX18 from one SSD to another

Thank you everyone, I will try the snapshot feature first. It is for a collectible Thinkpad x301 (my portable typewriter) and the amount of home data is super small . I'll report back. In that case, and if your USB stick is 8GB or larger, a simple personal snapshot with no directories in /home excl...

Migrating MX18 from one SSD to another

Hello everyone, I would like to migrate my current installation of MX18 from one SSD to another (different brand and size). What would be the best approach? Would MX Snapshot do the job? I would like to ideally keep everything as-is. Thanks for any hints. Best regards, Jiri edit: We're talking about...

Re: Can't read CDs/DVDs, Chinese characters instead

Yes, this is my problem too. However, I don't get how to approach it. The guy's statement "after downloading from language support (in System settings) some extra packages" is not very helpful.

If your optical drive is giving trouble, likely it's dirty, I would try copying the CDs/DVDs (using dd or maybe ddrescue) to your disk, & loop mount them from there to see what you have in/on them.

Can't read CDs/DVDs, Chinese characters instead

Hello everyone, I face a strange problem with multiple laptops (thinkpad t430, x301) and MX Linux 18.3. I came up across a bunch of my old CDs/DVDs. I want to revise them before throwing away. However, It often happens that the OS mounts a CD incorrectly and shows Chinese (?) characters as file name...

Years ago I removed the "Designed from Microsoft Windows XP" sticker from my laptop. I attached it to my kitchen waste bin.

Re: New User Here! What should I know?

I suggest opening a container of your favorite drink and reading the manual. It is easy reading and you will find useful information there although you're already an experience Linux user.
