Re: RapidCopy or UltraCopier

It would be nice when requests are made that a description of what the app does is included without having to do a search on the net. I have no idea what these apps do, and copy in the name tells me next to nothing. I have used FastCopy on Windows to copy directories or a lot of files. A great appl...

Re: Security/surveillance camera & compatible software

Richard, richb ... mmm looks like that topic really matters for some kind of people just sayin... You mean security of your system? For sure. Just saying what I have found useful. Is someone looking in on me? Not something I am predisposed to worry about. But I recognize others rationally are and s...

Re: REQUEST? MX Tools - Control Panel - CP removal possible?

Since I am not fluent in German, your menu graphics are unintelligible to me. As a result I cannot evaluate it. Our user base is diverse with both new and experienced users. Many come from another XFCE distro. The goal is to make it friendly and usable for everyone. A goal that is assiduously worked...

Re: MX and my problem

MX 17.1, compiz, Google Chrome. No lockups with any software. It is an AMD processor with onboard graphics. Currently a 4.15.9-antix.1-amd64-smp kernel, but have had the default kernel and the MX 4.15 kernel installed. It must be some combination of your processor, kernel and graphics card that caus...

Re: Security/surveillance camera & compatible software

I have four Arlo/Netgear cameras, 2 outside and 2 inside. They have motion detection and night vision and quite good resolution. They are easy to configure with many features. But they are configured and viewed on a computer via their website and on a smart phone with their app. This may not meet so...

I recognize that as your opinion. Mine is that the Settings dialog stay where it is.

Re: REQUEST? MX Tools - Control Panel - CP removal possible?

I use the settings manager very often, and it is the first thing I go to to adjust for my HDPI display. It is very good that as a dev you keep in mind that users work differently and have different needs, And therefore do not develop to your personal preferences. That is one benefit of having a dev ...

Re: REQUEST ... Adjustment to Installer for foreign Keyboards

For the boot menu, I think this would work. You can set up a virtual machine as in VirtualBox and boot to MX. When the boot screen appears, use the arrow key to key down to the next entry. This will pause the boor process and you can take a screenshot using the screenshot tool on the host of the VM ...
