Re: Request for translations thread

Any Spanish translators around? I looked at the installer and it looks like Spanish needs about 100 strings translated. There are other languages that need updates for the installer: Catalan, Danish, Greek, Finish, Russian, and a couple more but if we get Spanish ready we should be able to release M...

Re: What to do after installing?

There's nothing specific you need to do other than keep it up-to-date, I guess it depends what you want to do.
I would recommend looking through MX Package Installer (popular section) and see what programs you might find useful.

Re: TRIM LUKS SSD full-drive encryption

Also from what I read swap doesn't need discard argument or manual trim, swap is managed by kernel and trim commands are issued automatically. fstrim in /etc/cron.weekly/fstrim-mx is run with --all option so the command is run on all partitions that support trim. For encrypted devices I think you n...

Re: TRIM LUKS SSD full-drive encryption

There's a /etc/cron.weekly/fstrim-mx script so weekly. "discard" option in fstab enables continuous trim (whenever the file is deleted -- not recommended) instead of periodic.

Re: Separate /opt

A separate partition? Why?

Installer doesn't allow for that, but you can always set up a partition manually and add the entry in /etc/fstab

Re: MX Boot Options gone bonkers? [Work around]

Also this deb creates a /etc/default/grub.bak and then if you run it again tha...
