Re: Snapshot mx17

yeah, we are going to have to take a look at snapshot's internals. some of the code is hardcoded english on the folders to exclude. You have to be consequent and stick with xdg-user-dirs. I have another one: Creating a snapshop in EN without excluding anything. Booting into other locale will keep y...

Re: Snapshot mx17

xdg-user-dirs Not sure whether I clicked all to exclude or only some folders! The issue is still there! Just tested. Tested with DE-locale from with a life-MX17.1_may iso. Tested both with EN and with DE. Only DE shows the dont-like-exlude BUG! Et nous? Τι γίνεται με εμάς; ¿Y nosotros? :frown: yeah...

Re: Snapshot mx17

interesting thought there fehlix. Well, you guys mostly develop in english. Qui pense à nous? You sometimes simply have forgotten 'us', i.e. to test in others locales :p It has caught us before. I'm surprised this one hasn't come up...or maybe it has and we just never noticed. ;) **dev note** xdg-u...

Re: Snapshot mx17

Hi Dolphin, Thanks for your quick answer! I don’t have Steam installed either virtualbox, so I will try with the “general” snapshot and see what happens and let you know. I understand that with that option my desktop configuration will be lost (panel, theme, etc...) Still since I don’t have any lar...

Re: Snapshot mx17

sounds like there is something else large in your home folder. steam? virtualbox machines? you can add such folders to the exclude list. there is a link in the snapshot tool to that file. another option would be to do a "general" snapshot, which will ignore the home folder altogether. (the "resettin...

Re: Mx Live Usb Maker

I've been meaning to experiment with the Antix Live USB Maker because it exposes more options to control how the .iso is written. I think it lets me re-use existing partitions, but I haven't tried it yet. I'm presuming it's just a script that I can copy from Antix17.1 into MX17.1. Is that true? Or ...

Re: MX-15 on Apple

uefi is supposed to require:

1. gpt partition table
2. a fat32 partition with a boot,esp flag set (gpt calls these labels, which get's confusing reading documentation).
3. a UEFI-type bios

my setup is attached.
