Re: MX is now #3 on DistroWatch over 7 days

I think that people are inherently "stable" in their outlook. A bit of good press about how rock solid MX is and the fact that we still get essential apps kept current; combined with the superb level of support received from the developers and "wam bam thank you maam" you have a hit on your hands. I...

Re: how to make apps ask for sudo passwd instead of root's

....snipped In my case it is just mostly curiosity, but I think maybe a sys admin would appreciate the "sudo way". Not this sys admin! ;) I support a couple of hundred folk on their Linux adventure and one of the biggest problems I have is inexperienced users stuffing things up (file permissions us...

Re: <SOLVED> Logging into Antix forums

I managed to set up the captcha for new registrations, but not show for participants and the spam is very low. No need for spam hunters (at least for now). Also, this post spurred me to look closer at the captcha plug-in options we use and set it up better. Everyone's a winner! Everyone's a winner!...

Re: Logging into Antix forums

Much easier, thank you @anti. However, I did not ask the original question with an aim to make your valuable time more harrowed. I have no problem with you setting spam traps in front of the page, I just thought there might be an alternative to the photos that I have a lot of difficulty with? I will...

<SOLVED> Logging into Antix forums

Just been trying to log into Antix forums again and failing. The problem I have is with those poky images for "robot" checking! I am of "aging" years with poor eyesight and, seriously, I can't make out half the detail in those photos. They are too small and unclear. I simply give up out of frustrati...

Re: MX Tools fonts

Not sure if this helps, but,
one of my 1st tasks post-install any gtk based install is to install (if not there already) "qt5ct" and run it to make sure qt apps have the same font/general settings as my gtk theme. Never not worked for me.

Re: Texstar

Obviously, a massive outpouring of support for this good man over on their forum. I likewise have used PCLinuxOS since nearly its inception. I have over 200 folk I support (and spread the Linux word to) now and by far the 2 most popular distros they prefer are MX and PCLinuxOS. This one for the folk...

Re: "Linux is about choice"

He describes the Linux I came through - 1988 (then early 90's in earnest) to now. Nowadays I find I have to bite my tongue and aplogise a lot to newbies because I dare to suggest they get out of the way of their own shadow and participate in their own solutions?! Still, great journey, have not had a...

Re: Fonts on Featherpad look ugly

I think you will find Featherpad is a Qt application, not gtk. Consequently, you will need to set & save fonts in the "qt5ct" package. Search the menu for qt5 - I think it is called "Qt5 Settings". Match the fonts to those set in your "Appearance" tab of system settings. Alternatively, install "Medi...
