Code: Select all

ps -aux |grep -m 1 su-to-root |grep -v grep|awk '{print $1}'
Suggest to use this instead of the above within the postinstaller :

Code: Select all

launch_user=$(logname)

done and sent to tim for the repo.

Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

currently mx-packinstaller ->popular apps for wine installs winehq-staging from the main repo.

is that still correct? I can't test here ATM...I apparently have some conflicting software because it wants to remove a LOT of stuff.

Re: VirtualBox install query

Just about to install VB to my MX16 but was puzzled to discover that virtualbox-guest-dkms, virtualbox-guest-utils and virtualbox-guest-x11 are pre-installed. Why? Does it affect my install choices? we have them on the iso so that the iso works as well as possible in virtualbox on first boot.

I've hacked together the following. the service does start, but I can't help if the app doesn't actually work. 1. take the following file (modified onedrive.init) and place in /etc...

Re: MX 17 Repository: The Flatpak Thread

1.0.4 has issues with a great many flatpaks, including zoom which worked on previous flatpaks version 1. they have changed some memory stuff, partially in response to a bug report I filed for sysVinit systems and discord (/dev/shm related).

(new bug report filed at flatpak github)
