Re: MX Linux 18.1 - Can't Play DVD Videos

it's part of mx-codecs and the TE had installed the packages. The only reason for deb-multimedia.org on MX I think.

Re: What's your experience with WINE?

I'm using two Windows apps on one of my machines via wine. foobar2000 and the great burning application AnyBurn. Both works great but CD-Ripping via foobar is not possible. In my opinion there are no native Linux programs good replacements for that apps. For example I'm ripping Audio CDs with asunde...

Re: MX Cinnamon respin / remastering not possible

with Cinnamon DE it's easier you use LMDE3, add MX-repos and install some MX-Tools. It's a systemd system. Wait a minute. Even though MX Linux uses SysV as its init software, you're saying the Cinnamon desktop environment itself also installs systemd to replace it? Please tell me I misunderstood yo...

Re: File /etc/machine-id Security and Privancy Concern

on my MX System dbus-uuidgen is working, so the file /var/lib/dbus/machine-id created at first boot. /etc/machine-id not exists in regular MX-ISOs. This file not created at first boot; /etc/machine-id is a systemd thing only. For compatibility to systemd it's better there is a symlink to /var/lib/db...

Re: Leider bin ich wieder von MX Linux weg

Hi Uwe, hey, ich freue mich, wenn ich hier mal muttersprachlich schreiben darf... Hast ja ne ganz ähnliche "Linux-Karriere" wie ich. So lange bin ich noch gar nicht bei Linux, aber die Faszination trägt mich immer weiter. Ich habe auch zeitnah angefangen, mir meine eigenen Systeme zu bauen, da ich s...

Re: File /etc/machine-id Security and Privancy Concern

deleting /var/lib/dbus/machine-id is correct for a fresh iso. /etc/machine-id is a 0-byte file in Debian ISOs, so the system create the id at first boot via dbus-uuid. After the creation the files /etc/machine-id and /var/lib/dbus/machine-id have the same content. On antiX/MX regular ISOs there is n...

Re: The Best Linux Distros for Laptops in 2019

+1 in this reason for deepin. I will give it a try. deepin is more leigthweight since version 15.7. Only a few apps and their own DDE stuff pre-installed. Actual version 15.9 looks very clean and the system has an improved touchscreen support. There is no live iso availabe but only the grub entry fo...

Re: Request: gcc & g++ 8 in MX18

For a while I have included Debian Buster repo in my MX 18 test system and I have purged gcc-6/g++-6. apt replaced this with gcc-7/g++-7 from Buster Repo automatically, not gcc-8/g++-8 but this is available too. Note: It's an experiment. This system runs stable so far but it isn't recommandable to d...

Re: MX Linux vs Debian

81 years. Very great. I like MX-Linux too and use it. The MX-Tools are userfriendly and it's the best pre-configured Xfce DE I have seen so far. You must consider Linux distributions for users and purposes different. I personally like MX and I'm playing around with pure systems and create own spins....

Re: share folders on the network

think thunar-shares-plugin is a nice helper. Perhaps an additional feature for the MX-ISO. Looks userfriendly.
