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.

Re: SOLVED - Synaptic - Remaining / Complete Packages - Where are they?

yeah, its only showing installed packages. you have to hit the reload button to refresh the package database. synaptic does not do this for you. eventually, over time, mx-updater will do this, but not right after installation unless you do a manual "Check for updates" from the updater right-click me...

I know distrowatch-jessie was complaining a little about falkon on his twitter feed about it being unstable.

Re: Failed in adding Custom actions in thunar

Re: Synaptic - Remaining / Complete Packages - Where are they?

unless you are getting stuff from "Popular Apps" or from our test repo, synaptic has a bit more functionality with regular repo packages. For instance, it marks depends packages (MXPI will install them, but it doesn't mark them). I'm with stevo though...this sounds like the apt cache doesn't update ...

Re: need to remind myself which MX version I'm in

Because I currently have both MX-16 and MX-17 installed on their partitions, I have been forgetting which one I'm running at any particular time. Not that I frequently reboot and switch, but if I had a problem and anyone asked me which MX I'm running, I would have no idea. What's a quick way to dis...

my screenshot is the windows version but I imagine there is something similar in the linux version. by default, its set to bring up the focus to the window when videos change, but not audio files.

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

thunderbird-52.8.0 Have you looked at fehlix's language tweaks for firefox and thunderbird? I need to push out an updated of my findings re embedded lightning. The prefs are doing well, only the embedded lightning-extensions is within the wrong place. Probably I'm not as fast in writing this down a...
