Re: Taking 3 to 4 minutes to boot during startup. Help

OP could just run sudo apt remove python-samba python-smbc samba samba-common samba-common-bin samba-libs system-config-samba && sudo apt autoremove in a terminal then reboot. I'd recommend rebooting in normal (SysV) mode. I'd also recommend leaving the auto-updater alone for now: just change one th...

Re: Questions for gamers re: RGB

I know they do, Rich. So does A4Tech. The problem is finding them in computer stores here. All they have are either plain black keyboards and/or those gaming keyboards. I usually power down my computer at night but I occasionally have to leave it running if a process is running that takes a long tim...

Questions for gamers re: RGB

I've recently been doing some upgrades to my computer and while shopping I keep seeing gaming computers, cases, components and peripherals that have LED lighting, some that even flashes on and off.

Is that because of the skirt-like shape maybe?

I have never seen these before, and as a result.. well.. I posted this in various places and people are having a hoot with them :laugh:

Re: My computer upgrade

@Eadwine Rose, now I understand your concerns about CPU temperatures on your new system. After all this time of seeing idle temps in the 30s it's hard to get used to seeing them in the 40s and not be concerned. Yesterday afternoon I even took my CPU cooler back off and redid the thermal grease as I ...

Re: Just Arrived from YouTube!

Welcome to the forum and to MX! I felt similarly after I first tested then installed MX. After installing it and running the initial upgrade, one of the first things I did was open the package manager and begin to install my most-used and favorite apps, only to find that most of them were greyed out...

Re: Are you a cook?
