Re: Updating as a regular user

kmathern, I've only readabout customizations ~~ haven't attempted to put 'em into practice. Here's a howto example which also mentions placement in /etc/policykit-1/ http://www.odi.ch/weblog/posting.php?posting=696 Hopefully this means that any distro-supplied (aka vendor?) custom /etc/polkit-1/rul...

Re: Updating as a regular user

You can quickly edit the policy on your system(s). Visit /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/ directory and open in text editor the actions files related to mx-update. For whichever actions you wish a user to be able to supply his/her own password, change "auth_admin" to "auth_self" The sed command below w...

Re: No updates available for MX17.1

With 17.1 there might also be an expired gpg key to deal with.

Re: Nvdia Driver Installer

Ok. I'll change it and try again. When I reinstalled MX18 it automatically selects that server for me even though I don't live in that country and I forgot to change it. Does this look correct? The only obvious errors I see is when it tries to reinstall the linux-headers-4.19.0-1-amd64 and firmware...

Re: OOPS lost an icon I use a lot. Can it be restored?

It sounds like you're talking about the MX Updater icon. You might have accidentally right-clicked on it's "Hide until updates available" setting. If that's the case restarting MX Updater from the Whiskermenu will clear the "Hide until updates available" setting and the icon should then reappear.

Re: How is the update of the backport packages?

It's not safe to run an outdated kernel version, which is what would happen if the backported kernel metapackage was installed but the backports repository was disabled. They don't always provide updates to backported kernels anyway. I recall one MX release which used a backports kernel, six months...
