Re: Restore Whisker menu MX default settings

umm....there weren't big updates. the greatest part of the settings you mention are controlled by the gtk theme and icon settings. is everything else working ok? it almost sounds like you did an update with the test repo enabled, and picked up the gtk3 version of whiskermenu. inxi -r will let us see...

Re: Trying to install via usb and dvd-rw

I've installed many a times MX via usb using Rufus but as of late, the last 3 or 4 copied isos don't do so good. MX takes forever to boot and then clicking on install gets me nowhere. Yesterday, i downloaded the KDE version, burned it to dvd-rw with Etcher, same thing. Could it be a bunch of corrup...

Re: Help needed to create a custom install set using Horizon (17.1)

Ok, so I just followed the sequence. I installed all my updates with root persistence, which pulled in some new apps. no remaster ran snapshot immediately after the updates were complete. took the resultant iso and booted that in virtualbox. the apps were present. So I really don't know what is goin...

Re: Help needed to create a custom install set using Horizon (17.1)

so when you make the iso off the usb, you do these steps (correct me when I'm wrong).

1. boot the live-usb w/persistence
2. run mx-snapshot to produce an iso.
3. that iso has your apps
4. but running install with the iso, the installed system does not have your apps.

Is that sequence correct?

Re: Help needed to create a custom install set using Horizon (17.1)

that's real weird, especially if missing from the menu.

if they are present on the iso, they should be present on the installed system. the installer doesn't remove anything.

so if zoom is present (from a deb?) then can you run it from the command line?

Re: Help needed to create a custom install set using Horizon (17.1)

@dolphin_oracle I'm so close but yet so far. I must be doing something 'basic' wrong. (perhaps... there is a loose nut on the keyboard :p ) As of this writing, I am able, using MX-snapshot and persist-all, to create an ISO that acts and behaves as I want it to. The generation of this iso is built u...

Re: MX-17.1: What can you use a PS/2 port for (other than connecting a mouse or a keyboard to it)?

Just be careful. We had a guy in our office some years ago that went through computers pretty fast. We tracked it down to his cleaning schedule. He would unplug his his keyboard and mouse when he pull out his tower to clean behind it. It didn't catxh him every time but it got him enough that we did ...

Re: MX-17.1: What can you use a PS/2 port for (other than connecting a mouse or a keyboard to it)?

I don't think you would want to use a PS/2 port for anything other than a keyboard. The system still sees a USB-to-PS/2 adapter as a PS/2 port (at least I think so), so you wouldn't be able to use it for anything anyway. you used to see these things all the time when the keyboard manufacturers were ...

Re: Distrowatch reveiw grumbles

hi! Just to let you know that Google Earth auto-updated from MX update... I guess that "con" is stricked out... Too bad I can't point that out on my review on distrowatch. I think it would not be "fair" to do another review and give MX 10 again, just to mention this. I notice that it's ( Google Ear...

Re: Cannot Login to user account after snapshot crashed

did you run out of space on the home partition? that's kind of what it sounds like.

fromt he root account, try removing the /home/snapshot folder.
