Re: Need help in working with a NAS drive and Linux

It looks like answer is somewhat as you suggested. I went into the NAS web interface and selected NFS. SMB was already there. I then used this command from the command prompt: sudo mount -t nfs 192.168.1.15:/data/Downloads /home/dcihon/mnt/Downloads and when I went to the mounted folder gdebi worke...

Re: MX KDE start menu icon png

I like the way that looks on your desktop screenshot, Mike!

I'm currently just running the new version of MX with the stock XFCE, but when I get time to tinker with a KDE installation, I will probably snatch this graphic. Thanks!

Re: Need help in working with a NAS drive and Linux

Hi, dcihon. I'm not familiar with this device, but, yes: checking on the permissions angle sounds like the place to start.

Re: Router issue

For the last while, I've beed bouncing around with various Linux distros, dual-booting on Windows 10 64bit with SSD. Have noticed that the wired connection to my friends router doesn't always connect to internet (in Windows); reboot is often solution. Can Windows 10 be spying on the Linux distros i...

Re: Request Please Home folder separate?

I think that for newcomers who intend to stick to MX as their daily driver and functional tool for everyday tasks, and have no geeky interests in trying other distros if MX works, the 3 partition installation is still recommended. That way, if and when they upgrade to a newer version of MX in the f...

Re: low cost fanless video card options?

'Lo, entropyfoe! (Sorry -- can't resist stupid puns.) I've always had better luck with nVidia cards under Linux, but some people do say they've had no problems with ATI/Radeon. I'm not one of them. As far as fanless, I believe MSI has a PCI Express 2.0 x16 GeForce GT 710 card with 2 GB DDR3 and 3 mo...

The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) implementation in all Linux systems deployed since 2012 (version 3.6 and above of the Linux kernel) poses a serious threat to Internet users, whether or not they use Linux directly.
