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.

mx linux savestate

regards

this option is great!!!
what do i need to install this option to
xubuntu?
thanks
you can't, because xubuntu doesn't use the antiX live USB system and the savestate feature is part of the antiX live-USB system.

Re: Error starting Service

I believe the script was writting for bsd's init system, or maybe some other init system like OpenRC, and not sysVinit. 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)

Re: Extra Space on USB stick

Running MX17 with persistence quite well from Sandisk Ultra Fit USB stick in Lenovo x201 laptop. The USB stick is quite a lot larger than the home/demo folder and I am unclear where the rest of that space is to be found while I'm looking around the file system in Thunar. I would like to use that un...

Re: RESOLVED - MX Tools Panel Missing After Update

Running mx-tools from a terminal launches fine. I only had a MX Tools icon on the right-side pane not in the left-side pane for whatever reason. Hovering over the right-side pane showed the individual tools but not the MX Tools Windows that shows all of them together. https://imgur.com/L5idm53 I cr...

Re: Time Setings in MX17.1

Ok, just sent an updated installer up to be placed in the repo. I think it fixed the problem (at least in my tests).

once it hits the repos, anyone can test by

Code: Select all

apt-get install mx-installer
from any of the isos before running an install.

Re: mx-packageinstaller (MX15/16) unmet dependency -- xdg-desktop-portal-gtk

Getting proper file choosers in MX-17 on some flatpaks requires xdg-desktop-portal-gtk. It was handled differently in the older flatpak branch in Jessie before xdg-desktop-portal-gtk was developed. in many cases you don't get getting file choosers at all with out it. both abiword and kdenlive do no...

Re: Time Setings in MX17.1

Ok, got it I think. and not as complicated as I feared. the root problem is that the new installer isn't creating the /etc/adjtime file correctly. Since the file controls whether LOCAL is used or not for the system clock, the tool that sets the times defaults to UTC. I think we can fix that easy eno...
