Re: can't play dvd video_TS.BUP in VLC

I could have sworn I had those installed earlier.
Must have forgot after installing MX 17.1.
That was it thanks.

Solved can't play dvd video_TS.BUP in VLC

My wife has this exercise video that won't play in VLC.
I played another DVD fine.
Anyone have any ideas or suggestions.
I think she played it before in another version of MX not positive.
Could this be a DRM problem?

Re: Our Rock Star is at it again

I like the fact that D.O says he uses used computers. I think a lot of us are in that position where we are not buying new very often. I to have a bunch of Lenovo computers only mine are the small form factor desktops because they are so easy to work on. Heck, I have yet to get one with UEFI install...

Re: Experienced a font printing problem

OK I tried installing Adobe Reader with MXPI but it failed with multiple dependency problems.
So I installed Okular next because I have had good results with it in the past.
Okular did it, it printed correctly.

Re: Experienced a font printing problem

Thanks for all of the ideas. When I looked at the fonts in the pdf I saw that there was a Times New Roman that was not embedded and 5 different varieties of Calibri that were embedded. I will try using either a different pdf viewer and see if that makes a difference as Rose suggested or if that does...

Experienced a font printing problem SOLVED

Hi folks. I hope you are all keeping cool. Quite hot here in western Oregon. Yesterday I tried to print a pdf file that I get every month from my church. They use MS Windows I know.

Re: Just an observation...

Warren's Mepis betas were that good. That was the main point. He was well known for that. So MX betas aim for that same standard. I often see comments that seem to indicate such and such distro doesn't really become stable until it has had a few point releases. I agree with entropyfoe's comments. Re...
