You might check with Tim about big games like that if they are already in backports and easy to install in MXPI. We took out our duplicate of 0ad and the older Hedgewars for that reason. Your flightgear backport was pretty big.

Re: Calling for submissions - MX18 wallpapers

All my background pix are way too location specific for MX, but I thought you'd get a kick out of this one. The luxurious penthouse offices of MX! Haha. Complete with the old-school logo on the building cornice sign. i_was_a_kid_once.jpg Great job. Cool wallpaper. muttering in the background: "It's...

The new Cinnamon 3.8 desktop environment works fine on my laptop now. :happy: Just install cinnamon-core if you want the basic desktop.

MX 17 Repository: The SMTube Thread

SMTube 18.11.0 should land in the main repo soon. This fixes still more Youtube playback issues, as well as add a rather weird reverse player option to play the video using a web browser. The reason given for this was that you can then use browser extensions to download the video, though the tried a...

Re: Win10 and MX Linux

You do need to turn off Secure Boot in your computer's setup to boot an installed MX. Windows 10 will still boot without it. Many guides also say to disable "fast boot" there, but I personally think (along with others) they've confused that with the fast shutdown option in the Win 10 settings. By de...
