Re: CPU high usage in background by tumblerd-monitor

I have often experienced the same problem. The tumbler packages are there to create thumbnails from your files. Uninstalling tumbler and related packages has been my method since starting off with MX. It's useless to me, and I can organise my file system very well without having some sort of funny r...

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

But Linux will never be reaching the masses.. they're simply too late, they should have done that back when Windows was still tiny. That is why Windows is so powerful: the money behind it, it's big and very well known, it supports pretty much everything that is new, and there is only ONE windows an...

Re: The new computer build

Perhaps some Linux veteran can chime in here, but the different CPU temps for Windows vs Linux could be caused by something in the APM driver in the kernel. I have noticed this phenomenon before where the CPU temperature varies depending on which OS you are using, Windows vs OpenBSD, and on OpenBSD ...

Re: The new computer build

The only way to tell for sure what's going on regarding your temp readings, is to either use a thermometer that goes up to 100C or more (eg. with a thermocouple) on your heatsink. Compare readings for Windows and Linux. I don't think it is the software that's reading it incorrectly, but it's possibl...

For those who are using strange modern themes that have thin window borders, here are some nice tricks to manipulate them on XFCE. Moving To move a window, first move the mouse anywhere in the window. Press and hold Alt and the left mouse button at the same time. You will be able to move the window ...

Re: privacy

Before seriously using MX Linux, I did my own security audit by using both MX and antiX in an environment where traffic to/from NICs and serial ports were tapped and logged. I spent quite some time sifting through that to see if there was anything suspicious, in particular the political bookmarks in...

Re: Microsofts plan to "Modularize" windows..... is actually a great idea!

Why is it that every single thread about Microsoft Windows has to go on a tangent about conspiracy theories, how Windows is spyware (as if that's news), and how bad Windows 10 is (again, as if that's news). This thread is supposed to be about Microsoft's plan to "modularize" Windows, not about GWX, ...

Re: XFCE and DE innovation

Yes, because every day I think to myself, gee, I wish I had more innovation on my desktop. I'm tired of it being familiar and stable.

Re: Microsofts plan to "Modularize" windows..... is actually a great idea!

They had this idea back when they did Windows NT 3.1, but because the hardware wasn't powerful enough they went back to integrating the graphics subsystem into the kernel in Windows NT 4.0. This stuck until about Vista when they brought a lot of it back to userland (WDDM, UMDF). And then I remember ...
