Re: Stevo's MX16-KDE: strange issue with root password

what happens if you type "x-terminal-emulator" in console? I also wonder if the quoting is a bit screwed up, a bit too many single quotes... Sorry, was watching football. This is what happened: 1. a separate xfce terminal opened (the command was run in the KDE Konsole) 2. the following message show...

Re: Texstar

I'm still running PCLinuxOS MATE on one of my partitions.

After Mepis 6.5, PCLOS KDE4 was the second distro to "just work" on my Pentium 4 Dell machine with 1 GB RAM, including desktop effects (although I did have to copy over Mepis' xorg.conf file to get the effects to work).

What sad news.

Re: World Cup 2018

Pretty much a neutral here, so I'll just watch matches that look to be a good match between 2 teams that play nice football. Example - Portugal v Spain tonight looks promising. This looks like a good match to me too. Are there any other ones in the first round (or whatever it's called.) It was inde...

Re: World Cup 2018

LOL!

That's pretty much everyone's assessment of the England team at every international competition, except for England supporters.

Re: MX Updater Ap-Notifier Issue needs permanent solution.

I believe it's always autostarted but that sometimes falls off the notification area when you have too many other desktop-affecting programs also autostarting at the same time and maybe also having notification area icons of their own. E.g. conky, variety, compiz, and in my mx15 partition, also gis-...
