Re: moving encrypted partition

The 2GB you see is your swap partition. Run

Code: Select all

lsblk
in a terminal to confirm. It will show you the basic file structure on your system and will identify your swap partition.

Re: What partition scheme does MXLinux use for encryption?

I'm new to Linux but this thread confused me. I installed MX-18.1 (now 18.3) with Full Disk Encryption using the automatic partition selection option. This is the partition assignment I got: sda1 is not encrypted and ESP (EFI System Partition) sda2 is /boot sda3 is root with /home sda4 is swap Neith...

Re: Intel NUC i3 / 8GB / 128GB SSD / 2x HDMI

Re: HDD or SDD [SOLVED]

...Then remove any swap entry from /etc/fstab Maybe I'm missing something, but according to https://linux.die.net/man/8/swapoff just running swapoff -a is enough to disable swap. It says it disables swap "...on all known devices and files (as found in /proc/swaps or /etc/fstab)." so just entering t...

Re: HDD or SDD [SOLVED]

I too was surprised by how large you made the swap partition - almost 50GB!? Some don't even bother with a swap partition and 2GB is common. I installed with an automatic partition selection which resulted in a 2GB swap partition. That was using the entire 120GB SSD it was installed onto. (Using 8GB...

Re: Encrypted drive in Thunar (solved)

I also use full disk encryption and have the exact same results as jj1j1 did. I too would like to eliminate this annoyance but I cannot while in the Tree view, only in the "Shortcuts" view. In the Tree view, the categories DEVICES, PLACES, and NETWORK do not appear in the left pane of Thunar and rig...

Re: Installing redshift [solved]

I'll do a rebuild of redshift that'll pull in geoclue automatically, since it's only a Recommends now, which Debian installs by default, but not MX. Works fine but the example config includes "screen=1" which I had to change to "screen=0". Oops, you're correct and I forgot to add that to my post wh...

Re: Installing redshift [solved]

With a standard installation of Redshift, the only change you can make is to enable or disable it. FYI, if you want more control you can edit its startup command in the startup editor or (my preference) create a configuration file for it. It is located in ~/.config/redshift.conf. It probably won't e...
