Re: ukuu

Never heard of Ukuu. I've been trying different ubuntu kernels though, like the one shown below, but I download them manually from: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ and install with gdebi. I only download and install the linux-image-* packages, don't bother with the headers because the...

You didn't provide the testparm results, just smbclient and smbtree ones. ...

Testparm is also installed by the samba-common-bin package, I would make sure it's installed.

Re: Has something changed recently that would prevent browsing network shares?

the output from nmblookup indicates that nmblookup is not installed. Did a bit of googling and I guess it's supposed to be installed with smb-client? which is installed. So I have no idea. ... dpkg -S shows that nmblookup is installed with the samba-common-bin package. $ dpkg -S nmblookup samba-com...

Re: [Solved] Firefox options for us Mepis 11 holdouts

...That said, I now seem to have a flash problem. It no longer appears in about:addons. I've downloaded the tarball from Adobe (dated 2017-07-24) and dropped libflashplayer.so everywhere I can think of.

I think it's already in the testrepo, there was this topic from about a year and a half ago: http://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php?p=381056&sid=be2c3cbbb87c29197483bdacc9dc78e8#p381056 You can use MX Package Installer (Full App Catalog tab) to install it, the plasma-widget-homerun and/or plasma...

Re: Nvidia Driver Installer command failed

The Debian Package Tracker (https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/nvidia-graphics-drivers) shows that the 375.82-1~deb9u1 update went into the proposed-updates repo, maybe they're holding it back until the next point release.

Actually it's saying a jessie-backports version (375.82-1~deb9u1 ~bpo8 +1) is the installation candidate. It lo...
