Can't Proxy VLC, SMplayer or XMMS or XMMS2..help!

How can I set a proxy server for the audio programs that come with MX linux? I never used to have a problem with this but now... OMG frustrating. VLC no longer seems to support it. SMplayer crashes XMMS - I cannot double-size it without the graphic becoming chaos...so it's useless. XMMS2 - It won't ...

Why did Windows Update kill grub? - cannot reinstall

I have windows 10 and MX 17 on the same HD. Using GRUB to boot, all was well and dandy. Windows threw a big update at me..and it wasted on my boot menu. I just get a message now that says "Error Unknown file system" then the prompt "Grub Rescue". Using a live USB key with MX18 on it I am able to boo...

Re: CMYK - GIMP and hardcore deadline

face-palm, I found it. thank you. But..it wonky. The PSD image is not like a normal image (to me anyway)..it's all in layers and I have no idea how to edit it. I had hoped this would be straight-forward but apparently it is going to be extremely difficult if not impossible. I have no knowledge of ho...

Re: CMYK - GIMP and hardcore deadline

I'll give them a go, thank you.

I'm not gonna lie however, it hella sucks in a big chunky way to have to figure out new software when i'm only a hobbyist and my graphic designer is out of town and I have a crazy deadline. Absolutely not fun and absolutely weekend killing. arrrgh.

CMYK - GIMP and hardcore deadline

Are there any programs for MX that will open PSD images in CMYK format? GIMP gives me a warning. I'm trying to meet a deadline. Our designer went away on vacation leaving us with what we thought was a perfect brochure only to realize it's not. I could edit it if I can get past the CMYK barrier GIMP ...

Re: Red Eclipse Won't Run For Some Reason

OK, so which is it that won't work for you? Older version in the repo, or newer version from game site? I would like to install the same version. Are you on 32/64 bit? Currently reading .. https://redeclipse.net/wiki/How_to_install -- Newer version obviously, why would I run the old? Also, it auto-...

Is this game in the repo? If it is I'll install it and give it test. I'm running on (64bit) MX 17.1 fully updated. I'll see if I get the error.
It is in the repo but not the latest version, you get that from the game website which can be googled easily.

If you're running 64-bit, and Red Eclipse is a 32-bit game, you probably need to install the 32-bit version of that library:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libsdl2-mixer-2.0-0:i386
I did this and it still generates the exact same error. Anyone?
