Re: LXQt and KDE respins - personal projects

I'm not sure how KDE deals with that, I guess I will have to leave it on for a day-two to see if it picks updates. You could also set a "apt-get update" cron job to update as often as you want... DPKG probably has a setting that handles that too.

Re: MX 17 Repository--flatpak

We need to check if the new flatpak doesn't great the interface...

EDIT: I tried the main functions install/remove/listing, it seems to work the same. So at least from this POV it's a go.

Re: LXQt and KDE respins - personal projects

I was thinking to revamp the Menu Edit tool, I have to read a bit more about freedesktop standards, it's supposed to be able to edit any kind of menus but I know it doesn't work in KDE and LXQt, it probably needs just a small modification to be able to read the relevant files.

Re: Firefox deserves the boot!

BTW, I've been using since my post, I don't find it inferior to Chrome, actually I am not missing anything. Quantum is much better, it made Firefox usable for me.

Re: New features in MX Package Installer (Now with flatpaks)

asqwerth is correct, we had problems when we tried to run flatpak as root, we run flatpak as normal user but flatpak will require elevation when doing some stuff so it will request root password for that, I would not run flatpak as root directly because that's not how it's supposed to be run.

Re: LXQt and KDE respins - personal projects

fehlix, not sure how to treat that, didn't like to download and install my keys automatically on users' machines, if they want to do that they can still do it....

Thanks for feedback, I just tried Synaptic and was able to start it with "root" password, not sure what's going on on your system, maybe you don't have enough RAM or something else is going on...

Re: Transfer Windows 8 installation to a new drive

Also, if you want to try, I think I have around an Acronis True Image license that I got when I bought an SSD... let me know if you want it (it might be for an older version though). You have to be cautious. Have you read the license agreement? Even if you got something for free, you might not have...
