Re: MX Updater process

Oh.. I always opened synaptic and then hit reload there to see. Heh.. imagine that, me learning new stuff. ;) When I first started using MX I did the same thing, I went to Synaptic to do the initial update because that's what I was used to. Nowadays the only reason I ever open Synaptic is if I want...

Re: MX Tunes

Here's Senri Kawaguchi and Kanade Sato at 15 and 9 years old respectively in 2012. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snMfDjmEcNM Two really awesome drummers (there are videos of Sato playing with a fusion band at 6 years of ago). Both still going strong in 2019, although Sato may still be in school a...

Can someone tell me where the icons for this screen might be located?

TIA.

What icon theme is that? (Or is that what you're asking?)

Re: Laptop died

That's the one thing I dislike about laptops (OK, touchpads too. I hate them buggars.) With a desktop PC if you spill on the keyboard you just unplug it, rinse it under the tap, dry it as best you can then let it air dry for a few days, plugging in a spare in the meantime and carrying on. At worst c...

Re: Netbook with Atom CPU

@KBD: I'm not sure if it's really worth spending money on that netbook but I have, or used to have if the Mrs. didn't throw them away, a couple of 2GB DDR2 DODIMMs around here someplace but I haven't been able to unearth them. If I ever come across those guys I may try one in the netbook and see if ...

Re: More from Dedo

... It's the one-person distros like PCLOS that kind of worry me. What if something happened to Texstar, God forbid? He's pretty much the lone developer, package manager and support lead for that distro. People might end up PCLOSless. ... Woah...I guess you haven't kept up with the PCLOS news, then...

Re: what is best os version & kernel to use with Dell D830 laptop

Are you sure the slowdown is a result of high CPU utilization and not something else? By the way. your Quick System Info is very hard to read. Please wrap it inside of code tags (edit your post, select that text then click the </> icon in the forum editor's toolbar.) Thanks. I've found that older (L...

Re: Discuss init here if you wish

One thing I read above is svinit is 25 years old, that alone tells me that it is a good solid program that has been tested and debugged under wide range of uses. I think it's a lot older than that, having been introduced in SysV version 3 Unix by AT&T in around 1983 per Wikipedia. I recall running ...

Re: XFCE Menu Frustrations

I just installed alacarte from the MX Stable repo and was able to create a New Menu (category) which I named Test and add a New Item (Nomacs) to it, and they appeared in my Whisker menu right away. I suggest uninstalling menulibre and just using alacarte (which appears in Whisker as Settings/Main Me...
