Re: antiX live usb issue

running LUM from the command line with the "--force=nofuse" switch should then work if fuse is the problem. We can add that option to the gui easy enough.

Re: My wifi usb adapters wont work on 5 meters usb cable

I wonder if this is related to the tlp power management. to force something on that long a USB cable you might need to ramp up the power output on those usb ports.

Re: how to change the name of the respin

Hi, thanks for the answers. Well, I think I am not much interested in the legacy boot thing because probably not many people use that. The important thing is UEFI boot. I want to remove all important references to MX, i.e. the splash screen, MX on the Grub screen, and I want to change the login scr...

Never mind, I answered my own question--I mean I now see there is a config menu with auto-save options. No, wait, that specifies root persistence. What about /home persistence auto-save?
home is saved as you go.

Re: "Sorry, unable to set root password" error during install

I've heard of one other user with this error and we never did track it down. Let me see if I understand...you put in the user password and the root password, but you get the message upon clicking apply, correct? I think this may work as a workaround. 1. close the installer. the system should still b...

Re: antiX live usb issue

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more This is the same as before but I changed the sense of --force=automount so automounting is disabled by default on antiX. I also added a 2 second delay (*sigh*) between when I create the new partitions and when I grab them back from the automounter....

Just wondering if the ids were different.
Curious.
still could be. permissions are on the UID, not the username, so twowire might be 1000 on one system, and 100 or 1001 on a different system.
