Re: Open letter to the MX developers from an Ubuntu user

Gave these folks a warm welcome and ask how they can contribute. I believe that we are in fact doing that; as asqwerth posted, there is good material coming up. I, for instance, never thought about caps lock. We are not, however, inclined to extend a *warm welcome* when someone starts by yelling at...

Re: Site describing MX as a 'product'?

the word is wrong and a big deal...can you guys change that one word?
Nothing anywhere on the Home page suggests a commercial interest, so it's definitely not a big deal to most of the universe. A product is by definition something produced.

Re: Problem with Xfburn

Just tried Brasero - acted just the same. Image files and text files open - files trying to open in LibreOffice fail. So we don't have an Xfburn problem, but a LibreOffice problem that fails on ver 5.4... it works on ver 5.0..., 5.1..., 5.3... those are all I have to test with. Earl That makes more...

Re: Streamlining MX17

Have you thought of installing one of the flavors of antiX 17 instead? You could go with Base and just add what you need.

Re: Open letter to the MX developers from an Ubuntu user

I address some of the details below, but first: this is not Windows or Ubuntu. It's also not Mint, or Manjaro, or any of the others that people bring up from time to time. ------------- The installation tool is somewhat ... well say different than Ubuntu. A little less friendly. In Ubuntu you specif...
