Re: How to completely remove XFCE

This looks like it will completely remove XFCE on my MX-16 install: dpkg -l | grep .*xfce.* | awk '{print $2}' | xargs sudo apt-get purge -V --auto-remove --force-yes -y --trivial-only And shown below is a simulated run of it. Remove the "--trivial-only" option at the end to do it for real. $ dpkg -...

Re: MX-18

But like Adrian said, the first question is whether Deepin is already in the Debian repos and if not, whether it can be packaged to work in Debian Stretch/MX17. I see Deepin packages in Sid and Buster when searching at packages.debian.org: https://packages.debian.org/search?suite=buster&arch=any&se...

mx-packageinstaller (MX15/16) unmet dependency -- xdg-desktop-portal-gtk

On my MX-16.x install, mx-packageinstaller won't upgrade to the 18.10.1 version because of a unmet dependency for xdg-desktop-portal-gtk. $ apt-cache policy mx-packageinstaller mx-packageinstaller: Installed: 18.10mx15 Candidate: 18.10.1 Version table: 18.10.1 0 500 http://iso.mxrepo.com/mx/repo/ mx...

Re: Monthly snapshot announcement

You cannot replace it it's a different ISO with different name and md5 sum. Don't see a solution here, people need to choose to download the snapshot -- I mean the best thing probably would be to update a previous ISO using zsync. I had this zsync-ing from the September snapshot, it downloaded abou...

Re: AMD Radeon HD 6670/7670 (NOT SOLVED)

...However during startup there are errors shown modprob error could not insert nvidia current. How do I cure this? Sounds like the nvidia driver (and related packages), from the system that the snapshot was made on, is still installed. If it's working okay otherwise the modprobe errors you see dur...

Re: AMD Radeon HD 6670/7670 (NOT SOLVED)

Re: Removed the nomodeset but do not understand what the kernel parameter is. The radeon driver uses kernel modesetting (kms) and won't work properly if the nomodeset parameter is used. Like I posted before, removing the nomodeset parameter and also removing(deleting) the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file sho...

Re: Package request: browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash

The adobe-flashplugin package in the MX repos installs both the NPAPI style flash plugin (libflashplayer.so) and the pepperflash plugin (libpepflashplayer.so). $ dpkg -S *flashplayer.so adobe-flashplugin: /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libpepflashplayer.so adobe-flashplugin: /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/l...

Re: Syncing a fitbit

On my MX-16.x install I use the 1.0dev version of galileo from the https://bitbucket.org/benallard/galileo page/link you posted to sync my Charge 2 FitBit device. I've been using it since June or so of last year. One of our MX packagers, mmikeinsantarosa, has also built some galileo related packages...
