Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

Failed to set up dm-crypt key mapping for device /dev/sdb2 Check that kernel supports aes-xts-plin64 cipher Using live-ub-maker without encryption and the stick boots fine and beta...

Re: Will this Ubuntu .deb work on MX?

We do have Timeshift available in the main and test repos, which is supposed to create restore points, but I've never used it myself. The only thing I've done is to make a full backup with MX-snapshot, which is very simple to use. You can chose to save /home on a reinstall, so you could exclude tha...

Re: CMYK - GIMP and hardcore deadline

Krita is in the MX Test Repo. Not an appimage.

Re: Will this Ubuntu .deb work on MX?

Well Debian has tens of thousands of packages, hardly a scarcity. So more accurate to say, it does not have the package you want. Two things to keep in mind:: 1. MX Package installer has additional packages =in the Popular apps section, the Test section, the backports section and as you know the Fla...

Re: debiandog's quickremaster for mx-linux

I ran another snapshot after adding number of packages:

snapshot creation:
2:32
6.3 Gb
max cpu 70%
lz4 compression, 4 processors, includes md5 and sha

I did not monitor temperature as the AMD reports temperatures in an odd fashion. It is a reference temperature not the actual temperature.

Hi richb
I only looked in synaptic.... sorry.
It's called nautilus-dropbox in the repo.
That is an extension for the nautilus file manager.

EDIT:I guess it also downloads Dropbox

I know... I just think it fits there... but, I have no problem finding it it all by "my little lonesome" ;)
Maybe redundant but we cannot claim it as an MX Tool. A reviewer would skewer us, not to mention an integrity issue.

With MX boot options I can only change the background of the grub but I like to change the color of the typefaces.
You can install grub-customizer from the repos.

Re: debiandog's quickremaster for mx-linux

So, if anyone like richb hung on to their 3 GB lz4 snapshot, or has 90 seconds to create another one, how about doing a compression experiment? I do know that the standard snapshot ISO will compress a little when zipped, to about 99.3%. Used gzip: Original iso 3.1 GB Zipped file: 2.6 GB and 4 minut...
