Re: Difficulty Installing Mx Linux on a Mintbox Mini 2 Pro

almost sounds like there are 2 grubs trying to load, and the first fails since the mint install is gone. I'm not sure how that would actually work though if you've wiped the hard drive.

I'm no grub expert though.

Re: Thunar doesn't see Bookdrive

have ever burned an iso to that device, because it sure looks like thunar is trying to mount a filesystem that may not exist. No, but somehow the name changed on it a while back. its also named antiXlive, which makes me wonder even more. You can get all sorts of strange errors when an iso burn isn'...

Re: Dell XPS 15 9560: Inverting touchpad scroll direction only inverts vertical direction

you could probably also do this in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/synaptic.conf file. I've inverted my touchpad in antiX by editing that file...I would have to look up the exact edit but its something like using a -1 for the horizontal step rather than a '1'.

I cannot get MX-Tweak to run. I also tried through the terminal and get a message that compton is not running. How can I get compton to run if tweak will not start also?

Re: Permission options in thunar drop down menu not visible.

we removed them from mx because they were more dangerous than they were worth.

if you want to replace them, in thunar open "Custom Actions" and use this command:

Code: Select all

gksu "chown -R root:root %F"
for change ownership to root and

Code: Select all

gksu "chown -R $USER:$USER %F"
for change ownership to user

Re: Error: Unable to locate package snapd-xdg-open

its not available under debian. its snapd-xdg-open is an older package. I believe the functions are provided by the basic snapd package now.

even under ubuntu its listed as a transitional "dummy" package.
