Re: Thunderbird Behavior

apparently somewhere along the way, ~/.config/mimeapps.list became preferred to ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list. We will keep this in mind for the next version of MX.

Re: Could not open \EFI\BOOT\fallback.efi": 14

Re: MX-18 login and locked session problem

I'm going to suggest removing the /etc/X11/xorg.conf (if its present) file, as that has shown to be trouble for some machines.

Re: APT vulnerability

I did the updates yesterday when they came through Synaptic. I wasn't then aware of the need to do apt -o Acquire::http::AllowRedirect=false update apt -o Acquire::http::AllowRedirect=false upgrade should I now remove those packages and run these codes and reinstall? I think its already done. The s...

error: unknown filesystem Unaligned pointer 0xb5d778e8 aborted. Press any key to continue.
