Re: gnutv (or even maybe me-tv)

Hello, I'm new to MX-Linux (but not Linux in general). I wanted to install gnutv and it doesn't seem to be in any of the repositories, which I find kind of surprising. I like to watch and record Over-The-Air digital TV broadcast in the ATSC format used in North America. ME-TV was a great program fo...

Re: MX-16, why gparted upgrade being kept back?

I've just uploaded an updated udisks2 to MX-15 Test. I can install gparted from Test now that it's there. Of course, at the moment, it's only on the *.mxrepo.com servers until other mirrors update. `apt-get upgrade' and `apt-get dist-upgrade' also now go thru without keeping back gparted. Thanks Tim.

Re: MX-16, why gparted upgrade being kept back?

You seem to have discovered a mistake in the Test repo (yes, gparted 0.33 is only in Test). Gparted 0.33 depends on a version of udisks2 not available in Jessie. Stevo probably didn't notice that when rebuilding for Jessie because it's not in the Build-Depends. It doesn't need it to build, just to ...

(solved) MX-16, why gparted upgrade being kept back?

I'm trying to figure out why a gparted upgrade is being kept back by both `apt-get upgrade' and `apt-get dist-upgrade' ? apt-get upgrade: $ sudo apt-get upgrade --trivial-only -V Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Calculating upgrade... Done The ...

Re: Updater behaviour!!

Updater no longer uses the keyring (Seahorse) and asks directly for root password, is this now the normal? I also see that for some reason it looks like an ubuntu app. ??? See the link in the screenshot. Is this normal? Should I be worried? Screenshot.png MX Updater (aka apt-notifier) has been chan...

Re: sudo doesn't work for apt in terminal

Sometimes the MX Update applet is checking for updates in the background, and will lock that file, too. The apt-notifier (aka MX Updater) uses the "NoLocking=true" debug option when it does it's background check for updates, so I don't think that's what's locking that file. https://github.com/MX-Li...

Re: apt-notifier problem

There was a change in apt-notifier a few days ago. The change involved using pkexec to gain root privileges instead of su-to-root. So far as I know it wasn't tested on i3 since none of the devs use i3. There are two possible ways to fix this. The preferable one is by setting up your i3 config file ...

Re: MX-15/16 Expired Key

OK well I am not sure how you only have an expired error if the file is not there... I would have thought you would receive a unknown key error. Maybe someone else has an explanation for this. The expired key might be in the /etc/apt/trusted.gpg file instead of in the .d location, the keyring packa...
