Re: MXStudio - unofficial respin

Thanks for offering your spin here. I haven't tested it, as I don't have very complex needs for music (mainly I listen and don't create/modify). Is MuSE the same as Musescore? Pragha is a very basic music player that doesn't have that many features but somehow I find that it just sounds nicer in its...

Re: Another installation success

Ok, here's a SS of inxi -F: VTam Screenshot.png Since a SS is not searchable, you could open MX-Tools >> Quick System Info The displayed info will automatically be copied into the clipboard, which you could then paste here within the [ code ] and [/ code] tags (note: remove all the spaces in the 2 ...

Re: New Linux forum

I think forum members Gerson and Mauser just wanted to spread the word about MX a little further due to their enthusiasm for it (which I appreciate), so I don't see any issue. Seems to be more of a place to chat about Linux-related topics. I don't see why we have to monitor it or pop in to give inpu...

Re: LXQt and KDE respins - personal projects

Had a quick test of MX-KDE live on thumb drive. Works fine but seems very vanilla Plasma and not MX-ish enough. 1. the MX default papirus icon set isn't installed at all. It's in the LXQT spin. 2. for some strange reason, even though the xapian-apt-whatever package is installed, Synaptic does not ha...

Re: LXQt and KDE respins - personal projects

LXQT: Nice and simple, but lacking in functionality when compared to XFCE. Not my cup of tea but this spin is pleasantly set up. Some suggestions - 1. MX-updater is not in autostart, which I believe it should be. Worse, I couldn't find it in the LXDE menu, even though it's installed. I have now past...

Re: MX 17 Repository: backported XFWM 4.13.x

Isn't 4.13++ of XFWM based on gtk3 rather than gtk2?

If you change that, will you need to change all the other XFCE apps and packages like the XFCE settings manager, panel, whisker menu and Thunar etc that are running in MX17 to the gtk3 version as well?

Re: My Journey

Welcome! We're glad you like MX Linux and it suits your purpose. I don't like to be the one sounding a cautionary note, but it must be noted that Manjaro is a rolling distro and does expect a small amount of reading and checking from the user before each update. Similarly, while the AUR is vast, it ...

Re: MX Unofficial Respin

Welcome. Thanks for your interest in MX and your unofficial respin.

I know nothing much about development and coding, but if Gitkraken is proprietary, then it's not likely that MX can have it preinstalled by default. It's just a matter of what is proper and permitted.

Re: Conky doesn't display correctly.

I think somehow you have 2 instances of the conky in the middle running at the same time, and one is a little shifted to the left and hidden behind the other one. If you open Conky Manager and click on that "Stop" sign in the tool bar, that will hopefully kill all the conkies. Then then apply the mi...
