Re: MX18.3 update to a number of debian packages (base-files one of them)

What is the purpose of this grub update anyway?
I have a working multiboot system so why should I do the update?

P.S. I have done all but the six grub ones and everything still works, but the grub ones are just confusing me!

Re: MX18.3 update to a number of debian packages (base-files one of them)

Could a guru please confirm the recommended GUI procedure for this grub update.
I understand that one should "keep current" but then you have to tick something: what should be ticked?

[No command line stuff, please.]

Re: How to install OpenCPN

The 4.99.1520 version now in the test repo seems to work.

[SOLVED]Re: FoxtrotGPS.

Foxtrot works very well: I have been using it for years (it was originally called TangoGPS but Foxtrot seems identical).

Re: CUPS 2.2.1 for MX15/16.[Request withdrawn]

Canon pixma mg5750.
Bought it to replace my HP c309g which had died.

EDIT:-
MX18 handles the pixma OK, so CUPS upgrade for MX15 is not essential.

Re: CUPS 2.2.1 for MX15/16.

Yes, tried the test repo version using the MX package installer but it does not work on this new printer.
Will look at your link now.

[WITHDRAWN]CUPS 2.2.1 for MX15/16.

I have a new printer/scanner which works fine on MX18 with v2.2.1, but not at all on MX15 with v1.7.5. :bawling:
Could the packaging team find time to make a deb of v2.2.1 for MX15/16? :crossfingers:

[SOLVED]MX15/16 repos.

Running M15 fully updated, is there any point in adding the M16 repo to the list?
Does it offer anything beyond what is already supplied by the M15 repo?
