That's not a screen saver. That's a login screen. Looks nice.
It's a screensaver cum screenlocker. The locker part is good news. Hopefully means we will no longer have to use that weird ugly locker that comes with the warning whenever it's outdated.

Re: Monthly snapshot announcement

Yes. Nothing confusing. It's what the MX17.1 original release would be if someone installed it and then faithfully applied all updates, and then snapshotted it in October. It will save you having to apply all the March to October updates after you've installed it on your machine. And if some of the ...

Re: Getting ready to pull the plug on MX-15 ... About ready to

Did this machine come with Windows 7 preinstalled previously, and you just shrunk the windows partition to make space to install mx15? If yes and you're going to keep win7 on the machine, why not install mx17 exactly the way you installed mx15 on the same machine previously , except that you write i...

Re: Disabling the Test, Experimental and Multimedia repositories

... The program versions in the MX testing and Debian's backports repos should not create that situation. In theory that should be the case. Except that it appears to have caused some conflicts based on some recent forum posts where some users apparently left MX Test or Backports enabled by acciden...

Re: Help with Grub Customizer not Saving Configurations Correctly

... Nope, custom.cfg is totally not affected by updates to grub.cfg via update-grub. It exists outside of the grub.cfg menu items and I don't edit grub.cfg at all. Ah Ok, then sorry for the mistake. But if a kernel update is applied into your main distrib, you have to modify by hand your custom fil...

Re: Help with Grub Customizer not Saving Configurations Correctly

I got the impression that he was using old school MBR boot rather than UEFI boot. That's why I didn't bother with UEFI instructions. I no longer use GC. I didn't find it 100% reliable when I multiboot more than 10 distros, plus running GC takes a long time when you have so many distros. Instead I ha...

Re: Help with Grub Customizer not Saving Configurations Correctly

Essentially you should only use GC from your controlling grub distro, and for the other distros, install their bootloader(grub) in PBR, also known as "install bootloader/grub in Root Partition"). Then, whenever you install or remove or update kernels in those other distros, you then have to reboot i...
