Re: MX-19 Beta 2.1 Feedback

Some of the themes mentioned are gtk2 themes (dust sand Mac) or gtk3 themes made for older versions of gtk3 and no longer maintained (adwaita xfce dark). Gtk2-only themes won't theme gtk3 apps, including the whole xfce 4.14. Outdated gtk3 themes may show up weird or wrong when used on newer versions...

It's all vastly easier if you create a separate partition for /home.

Re: @#$%^*&! SystemD .. the snake strikes again

I think the answer to his question is: if you want to keep running mx with no systemd-related packages at all, then you are making a choice to have to conduct occasional pruning and package removal whenever certain packages update, because of systemd-related dependencies. That is inevitable because ...

Re: How would one stop some updates to the system. Using MX18.3 August.

I've been using VirtualBox 5, installed via mxpi on my mx15/16 and mx17/18 installs all this while, without issue. IIRC, I upgraded my mx17/18 VirtualBox from version 5 to 6 just by opening Synaptic and installing the single entry "Oracle VirtualBox 6" (something like that) that appears if I search ...
