Re: MX 17 Repository: The firefox thread

When I tried to open a new page after the upgrade, it showed me the prompt to restart after the background update instead of just going to the new page. However, it just closed and never restarted after I hit the "Restart" button in the notice, so I started it manually.

Re: MX 17 Repository: The firefox thread

I noticed that Firefox will now prompt you to restart if you upgrade while it's running now. That's nice, since it just used to crash if you upgraded while it was running.

Re: A great Linux, the second one I feel comfortable with!

Thanks for the write-up! About the youtube-dl section, though: we've recently updated youtube-dl in the main repo, so that may now longer be necessary, especially if we continue to keep it up to date. Also, youtube-dl-gui uses its own internal downloaded youtube-dl which is separate from the system ...

Re: Package Request - Qomui VPN client

Yes, no account is necessary to add and use the repo. Some of the pages that the OBS interface generates require you be logged into the OBS to download files, but you can easily go into the repository and download the files directly without signing in, too: https://download.opensuse.org/repositories...

Re: Magazine's approval!

Is that issue 242? I guess we have to wait a few days for it to hit the Intertubes--linuxformat.com still shows 241. Edit: Ahh, must be 242--here's a legal "sampler" of some pages. Too bad MX and antiX didn't make the cover even though taking the top spots in class... https://issuu.com/futurepublish...
