Re: My PC not booting MX at all (doesn't even get to GRUB)

But your error says something about a media error and that you should check the cable--which is weird if you can access your boot drive in a Live session! That is because it tires to boot with PXE since it doesn't find a bootable disk but since PXE doesn't have an IP address it shows that error (my...

Re: My PC not booting MX at all (doesn't even get to GRUB)

This is what's happening also on my laptop (Fujitsu S761). But only after I install a snapshot of MX. I mean this is not happening when I install the MX-17_x64.iso. It doesn't matter if it is a snapshot that I have downloaded or a snapshot of my system that I have created. I manage to correct the i...

Re: New Linux forum

That forum is going to fail big time. I suggest we stay here and have all the info available in one place :) thank you! This is and will remain the official MX Linux Forum. It is the best source of help and information about MX along with the Community Website, Wiki and the docs. Nevertheless there...

Re: Error in .conky/MX-antiX in Aug MX 17.1

Thanks for the report, this is a good place. Also in "Bugs and Non Packager requests": https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewforum.php?f=97 either way we get this.
I think this should have been true for older versions, I don't think we changed anything in /etc/skel in the last releases.

Re: LXQt and KDE respins - personal projects

Had a quick test of MX-KDE live on thumb drive. Works fine but seems very vanilla Plasma and not MX-ish enough. 1. the MX default papirus icon set isn't installed at all. It's in the LXQT spin. 2. for some strange reason, even though the xapian-apt-whatever package is installed, Synaptic does not h...

Re: LXQt and KDE respins - personal projects

Not sure why you needed two steps to add items to quick launcher, I can drag items directly to it.

Re: What is the best way to back up MX?

There are so many alternatives it's confusing. I tried the snapshot and made a bootable thumb drive from it. I couldn't boot today so I figured I'd load the thumb drive and try boot repiair. But the darn thing asked for my password and although I've only ever used one, wouldn't accept it. I definit...

Re: Monthly snapshot announcement

Seems like a wrong repo that came from an antiX repo localization package, thanks for the report, we'll fix it. It's not a problem with the snapshot, it's a problem with the package. Actually it's good we do these snapshots because we can catch this kind of issues. On the second issue, why is mx-rep...

Re: Read access to linuxfs, rootfs and initrd.gz from Windows

That's pretty cool, didn't know it's possible, I like 7zip a lot.
