XFCE Terminal Window Real Estate

Good day! Just wanted to post my inquiry here maybe somebody has encountered the same. When I open a terminal window it always has an extra space at the bottom that it does not occupy.

Re: Package Installer - LTS NodeJS

Test repo is not enabled by default. We have a tab in Mx-PackageInstaller that accesses the test repo without you having to do anything. Once you select packages to install, MXPI will enable the test repo, install the packages, then disable the test repo, keeping things nice and tidy. You can do th...

Re: Package Installer - LTS NodeJS

The difference between the MX Stable repo and the MX Test repo is that Test is used as a kind of holding area for new apps or newer versions of apps that are in Stable. Apps in Test generally work just fine, they're just kept segregated from the ones in Stable awaiting more user feedback before bei...

Re: MX Linux 18.2 Continuum Freezes from time to time

UPDATE: Finally deleted the problematic kernel which is 4.19 MX Linux. I think the my hardware does not match the said kernel.

I'm marking this thread as SOLVED and the solution in my case is to change the kernel version to 4.9 antiX kernel. Thanks! :happy:
