Re: how to change the name of the respin

how do I remove all references to MX Linux (maybe except for the manual)? is this even ok/allowed?
I will respond to the last question, I would say it's even preferred that you remove references to MX Linux since once you modify is going to be your "product" and you'll be responsible for it.

Re: What is MX Workbench 19.3? (Solved)

I don't think mirrors should list that Workbench, at least not directly in Snapshots, they should be in a Community_Respin subfolder. But I don't have much control about what mirrors do...

Re: Do I need systemd to run a service under a user PID?

I tried runuser but it wanted to be sudo'd, and when I sudo'd it, I got some permission errors.
I don't think this would happen when you'd put that in /etc/rc.local because that file is executed as root so it would not need sudo, but anyway good that you found a solution.

Re: Do I need systemd to run a service under a user PID?

You could use "sudo sysv-rc-conf" and untick the resilio service.'

This would also work:

Code: Select all

sudo update-rc.d resilio-sync disable

Re: Do I need systemd to run a service under a user PID?

Phil, I would not change the script, I would call it from /etc/rc.local like I mentioned with "runuser" so it would be: runuser your_user_name -c "/etc/init.d/resilio-sync start" Replace "your_user_name" and give it a try... BTW, I use something similar "syncthing", a similar product to resilio but ...

Re: Do I need systemd to run a service under a user PID?

There are a number of ways to deal with this, if it's OK to run this after login you can add a start script in /home/username/.config/autostart Another way that I can think of is to add in /etc/rc.local something like runuser your_user_name -c script_name That should start the program as your user. ...

Re: Error reporting number of files?

That's a good example of what GUI and command lines are good at... while I get that command line can be intimidating it can give you a lot of info in a command the GUI alternative would be to go to each sub-folder write down the number of files and then add them up (I mean, you could right-click on ...

Other than live-usb-maker , what other apps are using fuseiso?
I ask, because , if I uninstall it ( which makes live-usb work for me), i wonder if something else is going to break?
If something breaks when you remove it, then that package should declare fuseiso as a dependency.

Re: sudo doesn't work for apt in terminal

Delete /var/lib/dpkg/lock and restart (not needed, just to make sure) and then it should work. Probably something happened when you were doing a update or installation and the lock was not removed.
