Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

Hi, I need to decide what to install. Has it any disadvantages to install MX-17.1 instead waiting for MX-18. Since there is no new Debian. Also, can someone who tested MX-18 beta as a new install please point out how the system encryption per installer is working now. Will boot be encrypted? boot i...

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

We do runs update-grub, but there seem to be some key differences when running inside the chroot environment the installer sets up.

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

Thanks Rose. I seem to recall somebody mentioning that same issue with MX17 in the past, but cannot find back that thread. Later tonight i'll add some details about this particular system, although it seems rather standard to me. It can happen. I haven't found a fix but a workaround is to run updat...

Re: I've Installed MxLinux Dozens of Times, But Can't Install on New Computer

The part about debian failing makes me wonder if your PC is set up with a UEFI that looks for particular linuxes. my wife's yoga does this, even with secure boot off. the only way I can boot linux on that yoga (other than the linpus lite the machine is looking for ) is to boot legacy. its frustratin...

Re: desktop background changed without my input

Well, it seems that xfdesktop is running. I was using one of the desktop images that came with mx17, but now I can't find how to re-install it. The first change was a photo that was on my desktop, then today it was 'black'. When I click on desktop settings now, there are no images to chose from. in...
