Re: where is message after bash login defined

Re: (MX17.1) Extremely low file copy speed to an external usb pen or disk (fat32 formatted)

doing some filesystem research online I've found that in fact, fat32 formatted devices are measurably slower than the same device with a more modern format. could be part of the equation here. scenario: file transfer appears fast until some cache or buffer on the device is full, then slows down to t...

Re: Can't update

Am I correct in assuming that this involves opening the repo manager and selecting "select fastest MX repo for me?" If so, could this be included in the left click menu item of the PM so it is easily found? Just a thought... The fastest is not always the one which is most uptodate or is available f...

Re: Full upgrade

If you don't mess with the sources we actually recommend full-upgrade because this way you get new packages we add or remove the obsolete ones. However, there are two pre-conditions: no monkeying with the sources, and reading and understanding the prompts . Also, I don't think full-upgrade is appro...

Re: Full upgrade

Just as a general question, with updates on MX 17, I always do the full upgrade which I guess is equivalent to the terminal command 'sudo apt upgrade'. No problem but why would it be recommended in this Debian based distro when it's definitely not recommended in Mint which uses Ubuntu? They claim i...

Re: mkvtoolnixgui and mkvtoolnix upgrade?

Of course I could have saved myself the pain of the GPG key by following this instruction :laugh: You first have to import my public GPG key because all of my pools are signed.

Re: mkvtoolnixgui and mkvtoolnix upgrade?

debian 9 stretch for mx17.

we have other third party repos, and it looks like that guy is maintaining things, so I would think it would be OK.
