Re: Synaptic: "Mark All Upgrades" won't mark the upgradable packages

I also did a bunch of upgrades, but Handbrake was held back.

I assumed it was some kind of dependency issue.
No time to troubleshoot now, the old handbrake is still working, so less urgency.

Synaptic did not give any message about dependencies though...

Re: How setup clock

I usually modify the clock on the panel when I make a new installation.
You right click on it, and you can change the fonts etc. I usually add seconds to the display by copying the existing format %:S I think is what I add to the H: M: line.

Re: Disappearing Panel Items

Re: mp3 gain - normalize audio

If some mp3s are recorded with an unwanted volume level, you can always open them with audacity. They have a normalize effect that can normalize the volume to whatever level you want. I usually normalize to -1dB to avoid any chance of clipping. Then select all , and export selected audio, naming it ...

Re: Dedicated application for kernel installation/upgrades

As I wrote above MXPI (MX Package Installer) works great for me, the easiest and most successful method of updating the kernel. When writing that post, I checked the available kernels, so many antix kernels, all 4.19,x. Where x can go from 0 to 18. You have to go off of the Popular Applications tab,...

Re: Dedicated application for kernel installation/upgrades

MXPI Where does that fit in? I have used that many times, always successful. Very simple to do. For me doing it in synaptic is harder. Sometimes the kernel you want may not be in there, so I would like to see even more put on the list for MXPI But if it is in the list in MXPI, then it will take care...
