Re: How do increase the size of the icons in the Windows Buttons in the Panel?

There is a setting tool for window buttons in mx tweak on the panel tab.

Xfce doesn't make it easy to find

For the tray, right click over an empty spot in the tray and use the preferences dialog to adjust the size there.

Re: System freezes - what to do?

you should be able to run without the xorg.conf. copy it somewhere before you delete it as a backup, that way you can put it back if necessary.

Re: systemd in debian

Why doesn't anyone ask why MX-Linux is shipped with both init systems ? Did the developers decide this or did the One decide ? The "self-adulation" in countless threads to "Distrowatch" is embarrassing, nobody notices that? who is "the One"? am I the One? are you the one? Maybe I'm just Zathras. Za...

Re: Putting /tmp on tmpfs

System booted just fine. Do I need to run some check to make sure everything is alright? Are there other stuff that is safe to put on tmpfs? I can't tell you about what's safe and what's not. I can tell you not to put /var/tmp on a tmpfs because that directory is expected to survive reboots and a t...

Re: Putting /tmp on tmpfs

now you can do your fstab stuff for the tmpfs and reboot.

just don't do too much else until you reboot, because anything you have running that is looking for a file in /tmp won't be able to find it anymore.

Re: Putting /tmp on tmpfs

just make sure /tmp is a directory and not a symlink first. if its a symlink, then just remove the symlink, make a directory with 1777 permissions, and then do your fstab modification and then reboot.

I can't think of a downside, other than the potential memory usage, which is likely to be small.

Just wondering why you added spotify repos specifically and not just the flatpak repos?
I love it, but I was just curious.
You can have either one. The l popular apps tab has existed longer than the flatpak tab, and many many people prefer native packages over the universal ones.

Re: 2 questions about live-usb: suspend & hd life

1) If I suspend using a live-usb, will the computer's hard drive also suspend? 2) Also, will exclusively using a live-usb extend the life of an old hard drive? I have MX installed on an old computer, and it works great as is. But I'm so impressed using the live-usb on it, that I'm curious about the...

Re: Getting bumblebee to work on Dell G3 3579

Welcome to the forum. If you use the Nvidia driver installer availabe from MX Tools, it will attempt to detect an Optimus machine, and offer to install Bumblebee for you. I would not advise attempting to do this if there has been an earlier attempt at installing graphics drivers by another method; ...
