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...

Re: Read access to linuxfs and rootfs from Windows

A quick tip for those fellow lads and ladettes who dual-boot a frugal MX and various versions of Windows. 7z and 7zFM can open and access both linuxfs and rootfs, the root persistence file (probably homefs works as well though I have not tested this). So if you just want a quick peek into a file or...

Sure, good luck. Idk if there's an easier way or not?

from a live-USB, mount the installed system's partition and delete that installed version of /var/cache/brightness-settings-cache (the entire folder).

then reboot into the installed system.

Re: Gimp update problem

Good old deb-multimedia causing issues again.

Your conflicting lib is being pulled from deb-multimedia. And it's version is such that it's not updating.

Re: Add an "About Your Computer" item into the mx-welcome GUI

Is it the cmd: "inxi -F" (with apparently the "-v 4" option) into the mx-tools command line ? (in French it is named " Outils/Utilitise/Information système") If so, this command does not always work here to open a terminal with these info. The first time is always OK, but if I try again the termina...

Re: Network related questions

I do have a similar issue in my home network, and I've narrowed it down to conflicting "master samba browsers". In my home, I have a router with file sharing capabilities through a usb port. And while I can disable the shares on the router, I cannot disable the samba server on the router itself. So ...

Re: Add an "About Your Computer" item into the mx-welcome GUI

check out "Quick-system-info" in the menu, which already does what you propose, and copies the output to the clipboard.

adding it to welcome is a good idea...will keep in mind for the next iteration of mx-welcome.
