Re: Another new kernel problem

it's sudo update-grub And is it your MX that controls grub? If not and you either installed MX's grub on root partition or your UEFI boot priority places another distro's grub as first, updating grub isn't going to make MX's grub appear on reboot.

Re: Problems with big December package update

Maybe the blog announcement on the big December updates should have cautions targeted at:

1. Nvidia users;
2. people who automate their autoremoval of apparently orphaned packages;
3. people who might have enabled the third party deb-multimedia repo [might affect new GIMP].

Sorry, but I didn't sign up for any Debian guidelines or rules of conduct when I joined the forum in 2007. I joined the Mepis-Lovers, and then the MX, Forum, not the Debian organisation.

Never read those documents. Don't intend to.

This forum has its own way of handling things.

Re: MX Mate Desktop

...And why replace Mate advanced menu when it's perfectly functional and very configurable?... With regard to the Mate advanced menu, I was using it originally on PCLOS, until one day it just didn't work any more. Maybe it was because PCLOS is gently rolling and the advanced menu's development didn...
