Restore your backup. Any sysadmin who gets caught out by this deserves to pay, IMO.

Re: MX-19 Beta 1 Feedback

The live image works fine under QEMU/KVM, the new qxl video drivers mean that it should also work in gnome-boxes.

There is no GTK+ 3 configuration for either the theme or icons, this seems to be a peculiarity of the Xfce settings manager with no ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini file at all.

Re: efibootmgr

The efibootmgr command can be used from the live environment or from another system installed on the same machine. The syntax for removing entries is a bit weird though: efibootmgr -b xxxx -B Replace xxxx with the boot number of the unwanted entry (which can be found by running efibootmgr without an...

Re: What Linux Needs To Do To Reach The Masses.

But I agree that stores selling and supporting computers with Linux preinstalled in the same price range as those with Windows 10 would be the way to go, especially if the Linux machines were even cheaper than their Windows counterparts. I can recommend pcspecialist.co.uk — they sell computers with...

Re: Root terminal icon

I guess if the root terminal icon wasn't in MX It wouldn't be a problem. Maybe MX team will follow suit in there next release. Well the gksu package isn't available in Debian buster so unless the MX devs host their own version then there won't be a "root terminal" menu entry. is there a difference ...

Re: Install without grub

I just fined that systemd is not friendly with dual boot systems and if I install MX or what ever with grub Debian goes into like recovery mode and does system checks on first booting back into Debian, which in turn causes a policy 31 error right at the top of the boot log screen. But i am still no...

Re: What Linux Needs To Do To Reach The Masses.

Linux needs more people like that, who personally help newbies with installation, initial hardware issues if there are any, learning their way around the distro, how to do updates and backups, and how to install and use Linux alternatives to Windows apps. Isn't that what search engines are for? :p ...

Re: Root terminal icon

There's only one problem. The terminal isn't root now. Change the first APP line in fehlix's script to APP='/usr/bin/gksu /usr/bin/x-terminal-emulator' But please note that running the entire terminal emulator as root is a really bad idea, the gksu package has been removed from Debian 10 for exactl...
