Re: Please translate new strings for mx-package-installer

Done with Romanian.

This should be a good update I fixed many performance issues and weird errors. I can't wait to be ready for the repo.

Re: Can't make a bootable USB

MX doesn't support LVM installation for now, it needs regular partitions or free space on disk. Not sure why you stick is not booting, I assume you used the right /dev/sd... instead of that /dev/sdX, right? But at this point it might not be worth worrying too much about it since you won't be able to...

Re: Snapshot for distribution

Don't see anything wrong with it, just that cd is probably not needed. Sleep 20s is kind of long, but you should see it running in 20 seconds if the script runs. Is the script exec bit set? Also where does it get copied (where in /etc/skel did you put it), and how do you plan to run this script auto...

Re: Snapshot for distribution

Can you post here your conky-startup.sh, maybe there's another thing going on, maybe you have a folder hard-coded inside.

Re: Encryption Questions in MX-17

No, I think you need to run manually something like "ecryptfs-migrate-home -u username"

Re: Packages not flowing upstream into Debian

MX Configuration tools ever be available as a Snap? No. Snap solves a problem that doesn't exist here, it's not a problem to have the .deb installed, but if the package is checking for example if "mx-installer" is installed and tries to install it (like MX Snapshot does -- just a small ex...

Re: Fantastic job

We could add though in MX Package Installer a "Dropbox Thunar Addin" entry under "Dropbox" so people would know it's available I think that it would do the job. Thanks for the suggestion, the change should come by soon in MX Package Installer (one of the benefits of using a nimb...

Re: Packages not flowing upstream into Debian

I've noticed that, interesting that the writer switched to MX. Since I contributed to a number of MX packages here are my comments: 1. many packages are not general enough to be used by other distros, MX Repo Management for example is for managing MX Repos doesn't make sense using it in other distro...

Re: Fantastic job

Thanks for the kind words! I also spent some time finding out that the Thunar file manager had a dropbox integration package waiting in the repository. I almost dropped the distribution before finding it as it is a feature on which my wife relies very heavily for her work. Would be nice to have that...
