Re: MX 17 Repository: The Liquorix Kernel Thread

We are now up to 4.14-17 (4.14-13.2) in the test repo. This incorporates up to the vanilla kernel 4.14.14 rc2 release. By the way, it's now a lot simpler to adapt the kernel for building on MX, and mmikeinsantarosa has a new HP Xeon workstation that can crank them out in maybe ten minutes per kernel...

Re: M12/MX 14 Community Repo: The Pale Moon Browser Thread

Though 27.7.0 has been released, I no longer have the MEPIS 12 64-bit build environments on my laptop.

But I am still maintaining a MEPIS 12/MX 14 compatible repository for Debian Wheezy until its end of life on the OBS:

As a side note, I'm also looking for anyone with a 64-bit Ubuntu 17.10 system to test an experimental gcc-6 version, which is the first version I've been able to build for that release on the o...

Re: New Theme, tailored for MX-17

Well, it is possible to change the Whisker Menu to the GTK 3 2.X version, but I was afraid it would break other existing theming. The Whisker Menu has two different versions that are updated in parallel--we have the latest GTK 2 version, 1.7.5. It was just released recently. We could probably have t...

Re: MX-17 package request: gnome-calculator version 3.10

There's no guarantee that an older GNOME 3 package like that is going to work on 3.22, especially with the way GNOME messes around with APIs. But if it works, more power to you!

Re: how to mount virtualbox shared folder in MX17 fstab

I have my shared folder as just "share" in my home folder. I then set my guests to use that as the shared folder, it says it's also "Automount" with "Full" access. In the guest, the "groups" command shows that I am a member of the "vboxsf" group, but...
