Re: Wow, fancy that. Web ad giant Google to block ad-blockers in Chrome. For safety, apparently

Two words Pi Hole. Get a cheap Raspberry Pi (or I guess you could use any old computer that doesn't make much noise) and set it up as a Pi Hole on your network. It's easy to set up.

Re: I've noticed that the MX forum is as busy as the Manjaro forum

Busy forums are NOT a good thing. Ubuntu, Mint, whatever, there are no quick answers to new questions. Youse folks here (us'n's?) are still a small community giving every one decent attention. Once that's lost, so is the heart and soul. I've noticed that some questions get overlooked, hope people a...

Re: systemd in debian

You are embarrassed by different things that embarrass me. People being happy about MX progress (even in a non that important ranking) doesn't embarrass me. Not important because DW is a just small segment of the market, MX can be second or first there but there are so many people that didn't even h...

Re: systemd in debian

The "self-adulation" in countless threads to "Distrowatch" is embarrassing, nobody notices that? I can't say anything meaningful about systemd vs other init systems but I do agree with that one. Self-adulation? At most I've seen people happy with the evolution of MX on Distrowatch, which is more or...

Re: systemd in debian

Why doesn't anyone ask why MX-Linux is shipped with both init systems ? Did the developers decide this or did the One decide ? It's a common decision, we don't have one person that imposes his/her opinions. What happened was a normal evolution MX (and Debian) was using sysvinit, we just continued t...

Re: ​What's the most popular Linux of them all?

I daresay that the Debian mothership is the probably the most influential given the cloud of distributions that it has spawned - antiX, MX, Ubuntu, Mint, Knoppix, SteamOS, ElementaryOS, Raspbian , and dozens more. The fact that Google is now letting newer Chromebooks install packages from debian st...

Re: Regarding Repo Manager

Yeah, the program cannot deal with any configuration of the repos, it's meant to manage the default MX sources. So if you move mx.list to something else it won't display anything because it cannot read that file. Same goes for debian.list.

Re: Application start up time.

Do we think that people who understand a bit of command line poss an Enigma machine? How is that your asking for help and then declining to even try "good manners"? Should I learn good manners from you?

EDIT: I'm out of this discussion, I probably need to go bed.

Re: Application start up time.

Didn't you notice that "sleep" is the first command, why did you stick it at the end of that string how do you image "sleep" command would run if you type something like /blah/blah/blah/sleep in front? Try that in console and see if it runs... Because I don't know the command line! :mad: I don't ha...
