Re: Viber is not a Debian package

I just tested it from viber.com, it doesn't install with gdebi, it gives an error about not being a Debian package, however I could install it very well with "dpkg -i packagename.deb" and then install the needed dependency with "apt-get -f install" then I was able to run it with ...

Re: Monthly snapshot announcement

Not the file, the tweet. As you on Twitter you cannot edit your tweets you need to delete them and re-tweet, didn't imagine you'd be so efficient in re-tweeting :)

Re: nonPAE version of MX-17??

I think the developers consensus was to direct people with non-PAE CPUs to use antiX because that's more appropriate for older machines (or continue to use MX-16). That being said, you could probably install a non-PAE kernel and update the live environment to use that new kernel using live-kernel-up...

Re: Root password reverts to old one after a "successfull" change

The password of the Live environment doesn't get copied to the installed system, you set the password though the installer. it's possible to set it manually, but it requires chrooting into the installed system so it's a bit more complicated.

Re: Review "MX Linux MX-17 Horizon - Shaping up beautifully" by Dedoimedo

Wow, that's a great review. BTW, I feel the need to mention that /home/demo/Downloads issue that he mentioned should be fixed in the new version of the installer so an upgrade before installing would be a good idea or using a monthly snapshot once we release in (hopefully in 2 days since I shoot to ...

Re: Net Neutrality rumor

And all that activity you cite was shut down under the rules already in place *before* "net neutrality" was put in place. Increased regulation was not necessary to do so. Actually no, Comcast won in court the right to throttle https://www.networkworld.com/article/2206368/lan-wan/court-rul...

Re: Net Neutrality rumor

Without getting into politics I think you make a small confusion here, there's a difference between "hands off the internet" and "hands off the monopolistic ISPs that don't really innovate anything but tend to block and filter things like bittorrents (already happened), voice chat (ha...
