Re: Can't connect to the internet via public library connection

Many libraries now make you go through a terms and conditions page in the browser after connecting before you will be able to connect to the Net. If the browser doesn't bring up the page automatically, try going to neverssl.com to see if that brings it up. Or are you asking how to scan for and conne...

Re: Distrowatch reveiw grumbles

Google is killing off the 6.0.3 version of Google Earth that Debian's googleearth-package script/MXPI was downloading, so they no longer have it available for download. We're looking into having MXPI use the new 7.3 GE Pro that they offer instead.

Just tried to install the flatpack steam app, looks as though it installed OK but will not start from the menu.
This thread is for the newer Flatpak in our testing repo. Questions about flatpak applications and the MX installer should be in their own threads.

Re: MX 17 Repository: The Liquorix Kernel Thread

OK, nvidia-driver 390.77 is ported over from backports to our test repo, so I hope it's now installable.

Re: no wifi after Suspend

Yes, your module is called "wl". My module is "iwlwifi", so I created a new text file called "config" with these contents: SUSPEND_MODULES="iwlwifi" and copied it to /etc/pm/config.d: sudo cp config /etc/pm/config.d So just replace "iwlwifi" with "wl". Make sure you have a newline after the line wit...

Re: MX 17 Repository: The Liquorix Kernel Thread

I'm pretty sure you'll have to install the newer Nvidia driver from backports for a 4.18 kernel until I port it over to the test repo. I know that version builds. The Nvidia-installer makes it pretty easy to install from backports, though.

Re: no wifi after Suspend

Does it work if you click on the network widget in the taskbar, then disconnect and reconnect to the access point? My laptops would have the same sympton--it would say it was connected after the resume, but no bits would come over the connection until I did that. My fix was to add the wi-fi driver m...
