Re: can I remove a live usb when running in ram

Hi all I am running a custom usb image in ram with no persistence, can I safely unmount and remove the live-usb while still using the live system? How do I make a donation to mx/antix? cheers yes, if you use the "toram" option. that will load the entire system into ram. we have a donate link at the...

Re: Restore Whisker menu MX default settings

Mx package installer will not enable the test repo unless you actually install something. After the install is complete the test repo is disabled. Just clicking on the test repo tab does not enable the test repo. I suppose it's possible that if you started to install something from the test repo tab...

Re: Restore Whisker menu MX default settings

as I suspected, your test repo is enabled. not sure how that happened but its there 2: deb http://nl.mxrepo.com/mx/testrepo/ stretch test so you need to disable the test repo, then apt-get remove apt-cache xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin followed with apt-get install xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin to pull in the...

@dolphin_oracle - thank you, will try that 'cause latest trial still did not do the trick.

Can i still install KDE after?
yes, but it will be relatively basic...won't look like adrian's kde-spin.

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...
