Re: Package request: MultiSystem thread ->EZ2B

EZ2B Quick Install Tonight I installed version 1.A9 and noted some diffs from the older method.

Re: An Epiphany of sorts

As for why mint seems slower or heavier than MX, one key reason is that they are hampered by their Ubuntu base, which is just overall slower and heavier on resource use. This has been the case for some time. Up to end 2014, I was using an old dell pentium 4 with one gig ram. Any Ubuntu-based distro ...

Re: How to make Conky read out music from Rhythmbox

Have you tried replacing all instances of "clementine" with "rhythmbox" in the conky config? Try "Rhythmbox" with a capital "R" if "rhythmbox" doesn't work. I tested it with Lollypop and it required a capital "L". The mediaplayer.py script apparently works with all media players that use the MPRIS s...

Re: How to make Conky read out music from Rhythmbox

Not the version of conky, but which conky config are you trying to run? If you paste it here, we can have a look.

Re: [HELP] How to make Conky read out music from Rhythmbox [UNSOLVED]

Which conky are you using?

Also, there is no necessity to have "UNSOLVED" in your title when you only just posted your initial request for help. That makes it appear as if no one could solve it after many attempts.

Re: What is MX Workbench 19.3?

Adrian prefers to name his Workbench snapshots by the year and month of its creation.

So it's still MX18-based.

Re: MX 17 Repository: The Krita Thread

I've been using the Test Repo version of Krita a fair bit this week, but only their basic drawing and colour fill tools on different layers. No problems directly editing png files, or creating a .kra work file, or generating/exporting a png file from the .kra file. All I can say is that those functi...
