Re: Error message when trying to boot

Welcome, but please note that if you're running Ubuntu, you're running a cousin of Debian, while MX is more a child of Debian.

So this may not be the best place to seek advice for an Ubuntu system.

Have you tried MX Linux itself yet?

Dist does not mean distro in the context of this apt command .

Search the forum for what this command apt dist-upgrade means vs apt upgrade

Re: fresh install of MX Linux 18.3 - which steps are the next ones?

Hi, Welcome, ... The only update/upgrade process you need is the one above.. :) ( Since you already have the latest point release, nothing like "dist-upgrade" is needed nor possible... ) MX recommends sudo apt dist-upgrade rather than sudo apt upgrade. Perhaps search the manual and forum on mx-upda...

Re: LibreOffice recommends: Upgrade to LibO-6.2.5

I do recall some people saying the new version didn't work well, but I don't know how long ago that was.

Re: I was at the bank today

Strange. I am on FIrefox, no ad-blockers. Smart Https extension is installed, that's about it.

Image doesn't appear, only the word "Image".

Re: the data in /home can not be preserved

Is your pre-existing /home under another user name?

I've no idea if that makes a difference but I'm asking.

Re: conkey/conky manager

Perhaps the original poster of this thread could be more specific and actually list the conkies he tried that have no previews.

Re: Very nice distro!

Welcome. Glad you're here. Note though that there are a few members here who use both MX and Manjaro, including me. Manjaro is fine, but you must accept that it is a rolling distro based on Arch and exercise some due care and checks every update. That's the price for getting the absolute newest pack...
