I suggest you run htop in terminal and see what processes/programs are using up the cpu.

Re: I need a python script to hold a key down

I don't use linux for gaming but I am in the same boat using autohotkey to hold down the "w" key. I look forward to the answers given as I hope someday to be able to switch completely to linux.

antix or mx nvidia through hdmi port to tv with sound.

Re: Antix Power Button Live USB [SOLVED]

I'm still thinking about this. Maybe there would be a way to show the default defaults only in our released iso files but then turn them off for snapshots and remasters. IDK. I think this is only an issue for the language and timezone. Were there problems of this sort with any other menus? I tried ...

Re: Antix Power Button Live USB [SOLVED]

Thanks for reading my feedback and giving well thought out responses :) That already happens. What I don't show are the "default defaults", that is, what the system defaults to if nothing is selected. If you think about it, that would be very hard or impossible to do correctly since there is no way ...

Re: Antix Power Button Live USB [SOLVED]

heh, I'm an idiot. Last time I used e on grub must have been more than 10 years ago. Suggestions: please say grub menu in the grub menu screen. I would also like to have the "use e to edit menu item" back into grub the way it is in Debian and other distros. I know your method looks pretty but its ni...

Re: MX 17. Openbox, Tint2, Worker, Vivaldi, PIA-VPN GUI - :D

I love your tint2 config! Though I prefer a much simpler conky. I just took the default Antix/MX conky and stripped out the graphs and other stuff I didnt need including clock and set the update to 10 seconds. I'm moving from bunsenlabs to Antix and will install openbox and tint2 so your post was us...

Re: Antix Power Button Live USB

You shouldn't need to even edit that file if you use the customize entry when you boot. Changes you make when you boot can be saved.
