Re: MX 17 Repository: The Calibre Thread

It turns out that the new Calibre releases need a fork of python-cssutils by the Calibre developer, called python-css-parser.

Re: [BUG] Network device mising after unsuspend, modprobe driver r8169 fix

Re: Wow, fancy that. Web ad giant Google to block ad-blockers in Chrome. For safety, apparently

I hope it does mess with Slimjet. I've been running it for a couple of weeks now and I really like it. I've always run Firefox before so I may have to go back to that if crap hits the fan with Chromium, et al. I have to think, though, that whatever someone can do, someone else can undo it. Someone ...

Re: DistroWatch MX page hit ranking over 7 days is #1

Getting closer to the top for the 3-month rating...

Manjaro 3886 and headed down.
MX Linux 3341 and headed up.
