Re: Installing Open Office

The wiki.debian.org OpenOffice.org instructions look to be obsolete/outdated to me, for the most part there are no openoffice packages in the repos anymore. I don't use OpenOffice.org but the instructions here: http://www.openoffice.org/download/common/instructions.html should work, make sure you do...

Re: MX 15/16 Repository: The GPSD thread

I wonder if the stock kernels used in MX-15 (linux-image-4.2.0-0.bpo.1-amd64) and MX-16 (linux-image-4.7.0-7.1-liquorix-amd64) might be what's causing it to work in MX-15 and not in MX-16, I think the dmesg output looked a little different. You can install the 4.2 kernel on a MX-16 install and see i...

Re: MX 15 Repository: The firefox-esr thread

Can't we just have a firefox-esr bin without all the diversions and syminks? ... The .desktop launcher in our mx firefox has the line below, which runs firefox indirectly from the /usr/bin/firefox symlink. Exec=firefox %u Our firefox-esr has this and run it's from where it's actually installed. Exe...

Re: MX 15 Repository: The firefox-esr thread

a lot of moving parts here. The firefox-esr.postinst & firefox.postinst both have ... In the Debian package the dpkg-divert is done with a debian/firefox-esr.preinst script which we don't have in our firefox & firefox-esr packages, so you wouldn't need to touch the existing postinst files. ...

Re: MX 15 Repository: The firefox-esr thread

Our mx firefox-esr package has these Conflicts: firefox, firefox-amd64, firefox-i686, iceweasel Breaks: firefox, iceweasel which the Debian package doesn't. If I recall correctly it's because our firefox & firefox-esr packages both have a /usr/bin/firefox symlink linking to either /opt/firefox/f...

Re: Weather update?

I think our '1:' epoch-ized mx version was to stop a debian version from replacing it, but I think it still has the deprecated weather URLs. I would need to take a look at the source though to tell for sure. edit: I took a look, our 1:0.8.7-0mx150+2 version doesn't include the changes here: https://...

Re: Weather update showing no data

According to ToZ in that post at the Xfce forum I linked to, it's fixed in the 0.8.9 version of the xfce4-weather-plugin. That's also the version Stretch is at: https://packages.debian.org/stretch/xfce4-weather-plugin Maybe put in a package request for that version (that is if one of Repo guys doesn...

You need to take care of that issue, it's gpg key related, MX Check Apt GPG might fix it, though there might be some other steps involved if a expired key is causing it.

Re: NVIDIA Driver Won't Load after Last Update/Upgrade MX-16

The Debian nvidia-legacy-304xx-driver package and some of it's dependants are at a higher version (304.135-1) than our mx packages (304.134-1mx15+1), so apt-get wants to install them. One of the dependencies is the nvidia-legacy-304xx-alternative package which in turn has a dependency for glx-altern...

It's still showing data on my install, but I see this message at the Xfce forum that the weather URLs have been deprecated: https://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?pid=45227#p45227
