Re: Update-Grub

I would remove the kernel (the one you don't want !) and headers with synaptic or MX Package Installer.

Maybe reboot and run update-grub again, and they should be off the grub list.

I am not by my MX machine or my notes, but I have removed many kernels at one time.

Re: Clementine problem

Is there a setting for the player to look up the title? For example in ripperx, when I rip songs from a CD, it does not have the titles. Then you check the cddb, and if you have an internet connection, it looks up the titles, and fills them in. So, maybe clementine has a similar option, that you mus...

Re: Ubuntu style sudo? One password for login and admin tasks in MX linux

During the install there is an option to turn off sudo. I always do. It is a security thing for me. I bet this debate has been done a thousand times. But for changing the system, I like having a different password. It makes me think, OK, now I can screw up my system, so type carefully, think, check ...

Re: Anyone else think Gnome is useless?

To PPC, same here, I have not checked it since the Ubuntu early days, and it seemed hard to use relative to Warrens polished KDE versions. Many times Ubuntu would not even boot or install on my machines, where Mepis was easy. I never liked the Gnome ways of working, so I never had reason to try repe...

Re: Best practices with SSD in 2019

Best practices... 1. Get one -as above noted 2. Use MX Linux 3. Enjoy....there is not much you have to do. The sector alignment that used to be a pain, is now handled by gparted automatically, and MX linux comes with trim enabled so once a week the garbage gets automatically enabled. The endurance i...

Re: The new computer build

Actually that cooler looks to be rather low profile compared to the ones I am used to.
It is the stock AMD cooler right?

How loud is it with the case closed up?

I note the tight fit to the RAM, close, but enough space.

Re: The new computer build

I have used the Asus EZ-Flash utility from within the BIOS many times, always with success. You do have to re-enter any settings you have changed, like the memory speed profile (I forgot what they call it). The only caution is you don't want to have a power interruption during the BIOS flash. You co...

Re: HDD not found

I usually get my drives to auto mount using the disk manager in the system menu. You will have to supply the root password.
Open it, and check the box for the drive you want, and good to go.
