Re: antiX-19-b1-full and tsplash tests needed.

Testing the 32-bit version as a regular user, just doing things on the computer. My observations after using the beta for an hour or two: I enabled Preferences/Task Bar/TaskBarShowNetStatus then logged out and back in. Nothing changed on the task bar. There's no wifi status icon, just Menu, Show Des...

Re: Experience with MX on USB sticks, external drives

I use USB sticks to make live USBs of MX and antiX for testing purposes, not for running Linux on for a long term, so they get reformatted and reimaged often (except for the one that has my system's snapshot on it, which I've marked and set aside.) I've had good luck with my two Toshiba 16GB ones th...

Re: Network printer- Canon IR-adv 4225

Re: Programs with wrong resolution and reverse scrolling not consistent

Oh, I have patience with newbies. I was one myself not all that long ago. I just got a bit "miffed" that said patience isn't reciprocal. I'll chill out now. No hard feelings, Nez?

Re: Network printer- Canon IR-adv 4225

What JayM is saying is that the permissions of the printer might not allow Linux system to send things to it, until they are changed by those who administer the printer. At my old job each system had to be given specific permission with the ID and pass of the user. If I swapped computers.. here I w...

Re: Programs with wrong resolution and reverse scrolling not consistent

FYI none of us here get paid to do this as our jobs. We're just fellow-users for the most part, volunteering to try to help others just like with most distros' forums. If you expect near-instantaneous responses to your technical questions you'll need to switch to a Linux distro that offers a paid t...
