Re: REQUEST? MX Tools - Control Panel - CP removal possible?

Pretty good thoughts. I've often wondered about this one, but in the opposite direction, combining the mx-tools into the Settings app. But some of the mx-tools aren't Settings apps (those that are do appear in the Settings/Xfce Control Panel). So goes the evolution of the current setup, keeping the ...

Re: REQUEST ... Adjustment to Installer for foreign Keyboards

There is a screen shot tool included. It's in the menu or if your keyboard has one...PrtSc button.

Or are you talking about the boot menu? I think there are images in the manual.

All of our translation strings are on Transifex!

Re: Trinity Desktop Spin?

not by the dev team, but I imagine such a thing could be built on top of antiX-core and then the snapshot utility used to make an iso.

you would need a source for trinity deb packages.

Re: REQUEST ... Adjustment to Installer for foreign Keyboards

Just to point out, we did more than consider the keyboard changes...we had already changed it before the OP made his original post, which reinforces the decision to move the keyboard selection. The changes just haven't made it to the users yet because we are waiting for...new translations! So there ...

Re: xfce panel won't start on install usb nor on install onto hdd

* I'll check the ISO integrity. I know I should do this every time, but... Well, lazies gonna lazy. * I still have a home folder on my Bodhi partition (not an issue, right?), but I don't THINK I saved anything from the antiX install that was previously on the partition. I can try a reinstall and ma...

Re: xfce panel won't start on install usb nor on install onto hdd

did you save your home folder from a previous install or anything like that? the systemd-login message is expected and of no consequence. but you should be booting to either lightdm or an xfce desktop. I'm a little confused by the post title? Did the panel start up when you booted from the LiveUSB? ...

Re: fsck unable to works automatically, had to do a manual check

we use this in the installer /sbin/tune2fs -c0 -C0 -i1m %1 where %1 is the partition target. To my reading, this sets the mount count to 0, the max_mount_count_interval to 0 (which I think means that the number of mounts willl be ignored, at least according to the man file), and the time based inter...

Re: MX Snapshot iso won't boot

I made a MX snapshot of my MX 17.1 system and burnt it to a USB stick using MX Live USB maker using the DD setting (as recommended for all other distros) but when I tried booting from it it failed to load after a few seconds with, I think, the text message ldlinux fail ( as far as I recall).

Re: Why no kernel upgrades ?

Hello, Maybe I'm wrong. I have the feeling that kernels do not receive upgrades on MX. I'm using defaut MX17.1 kernel 4.15.0-1. Shouldn't had this kernel receive security updates since MX17.1 release ? Do we have to manually update kernel ? Thank you. we are evaluating the next kernel now. making s...
