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.

Re: Installing a printer in new MX Linux computer

By double clicking the .deb, it invoked GDebi to do the installation as I now recall.

I was so happy, I went back to the Canon site, and wrote a comment to them, thanking them for providing a linux driver for my printer.

I figure, good behavior must be praised.

Re: Installing a printer in new MX Linux computer

Falcon, I had a similar experience as you. See this thread: https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php?f=107&t=49673 Clicking the .sh script did not work, I clicked on the .deb, and it installed. There was a printer set-up entry on the system menu, and going through that, the Canon was visible, and it ...

Re: The new computer build

Eadwine Rose, For the Ryzen now with no integrated video (meaning you will need a video card) the sweet spot is now the Ryzen 2600X. It is a 8 core that had defects, so they make it a 6 core (12 threads !) so it is cheaper. I have last years 1600X, and it is a powerhouse, the newer 2600X is even fas...

Re: Discuss init here if you wish

I am certainly ignorant about the details of inits. I have read much controversy about systemd, and I am suspicious as an outsider to these battles. I do like the linux/unix philosophy of small programs that do one thing well and pipe together with other similar code. This simplicity has given us gr...
