Re: Can Gnome Shell work without systemd?

I currently have Gnome Disks working just fine by using a dummy systrmd package available in the mx repo.
No need to install anything I don't believe: "when the GRUB screen is displayed, click on Advanced options... and select to use systemd" (Wiki: Systemd).

Re: Vivaldi & H.264/MP4 (MP3 too I think) & libffmpeg.so

Re: MX-17.1 on Dell XPS 13

It did, but only registered disable and never changed

BTW: I have this working correctly now. It turned out that there are two drivers for the touchpad

The DLL one alone had a box to disable pad while typing, so I enabled it there and it worked. Thanks for everybody's help.

Re: MX-17.1 on Dell XPS 13

I found a script that promises to toggle the touchpad, but it doesn't seem to work: #!/bin/bash read TPdevice <<< $( xinput | sed -nre '/Touchpad/s/.*id=([0-9]*).*/\1/p' ) state=$( xinput list-props "$TPdevice" | grep "Device Enabled" | grep -o "[01]$" ) if [ "$state" -eq '1' ];then xinput --disable...

Re: MX-17.1 on Dell XPS 13
