Re: Vmware workstation 14 "/dev/vmmon" error

I do hope Vmware can be persuaded to run in MX: it is better than Virtualbox in some respects.
Screenshot of W98se running in VMwareplayer in Mepis 7:-

Vbox does not work nearly as well with W98.

Re: Can anyone recommend to me a cheapish, current model notebook that loves Linux?

I endorse the recommendations for 12 inch Lenovo thinkpads. You can get 12-volt chargers for them.
And you can get docking stations with DVD read/writers.

P.S. I have two X200 machines: they work very well dual-booting MX and W7.

Re: Skype on MX

The web version does not allow skype-to-skype calls, so it's useless.
The latest skype for linux does work fully, but the interface is much nastier than the old (defunct) version.

Re: Crispier theme and font display

I have not yet done the latest batch of upgrades.
Should I do them now or wait until they are corrected?

Edit: I have decided to wait.

Re: newbie help with software install

Heads up!

ESET is a (paid for annually) antivirus program: MX does not need it - nor does any linux distro AFAIK.

Edit: Is the OP trying to advertise ESET?
