Re: MX-19 Beta 2.1 Feedback

I don't think that's the end. mostly because our old way is in place (with the latest update to the installer) and works and no one has complained about it for years and years. changing now is actually more work. and bound to piss off certain contributors when we did this the first time. I really ap...

Re: MX-19 Beta 2.1 Feedback

I might have missed it, does this Window button's properties dialog https://docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-panel/4.12/tasklist still exist for Xfce4 - 4.14? On my MX-16 install I was able to bring it up by clicking on "Window Buttons" (it didn't have a icon) of the Xfce Settings screen/dialog. I can't te...

Re: Nvidia driver does not load after installation

I suggest purging off the installation

Code: Select all

sudo ddm-mx -p nvidia
the reinstalling with the main repo drivers instead of the test repo. bumblebee always seems to work best with debian stable's drivers rather than the test ones.

Re: @#$%^*&! SystemD .. the snake strikes again

Hey if Z wants to run systemd-free on the since of it not even installed that ok with me. But MX's repos (and debian's) are not set up for it. At least not without a lot of work. libpam-systemd dpeendecies are usually the culprit. for those that want to run as systemd-free as possible, they should s...

Re: MX-19 Beta 2.1 Feedback

The time discussion is fascinating but I want to remind devs here that may not remember but we initially used the time formats described in the locale information and we were told by several users that they were incorrect. So we generated the list of exclusions instead. Also, the clock12or24 script ...
