2) During boot, is there a key to switch to text mode?
It's been a long time since I used plymouth, but if I recall correctly I think you can press the Esc key to switch to text mode, or in text mode press it to go back to the graphical boot.

Re: MX 15 Repository: The firefox thread

firefox-61.0 is now available to upgrade to from the main repository. For MX-15/16 I'm still seeing 60.0.2 as the version that's available (and I just reloaded repos a couple minutes ago). $ apt-cache policy firefox firefox: Installed: 60.0.2~mozillabinaries-1mx15+1 Candidate: 60.0.2~mozillabinarie...

Re: scripting help

What I would like to do is add the values from rx_bytes and tx_bytes, then display the value in kilo bytes, rather then just bytes... I think this snippet of code will get the sum of rx_bytes and tx_bytes and convert to kilo bytes cat /sys/class/net/wlan0/statistics/{rx,tx}_bytes | paste -sd+ | bc ...

Re: Unmet Dependencies (libfontconfig1)

Hmm, it looks like I have a higher version of libfontconfig1 (2.12.1-0.1mx150+1) on my MX-16 install than the one MX-17 is using (2.11.0-6.7+b1) . $ apt-cache policy libfontconfig1 libfontconfig1: Installed: 2.12.1-0.1mx150+1 Candidate: 2.12.1-0.1mx150+1 Version table: *** 2.12.1-0.1mx150+1 0 500 ht...

Re: Stevo's MX16-KDE: strange issue with root password

In MX-17 checkaptgpg in KDE is now started like this: https://github.com/MX-Linux/checkaptgpg ... esktop#L22

But didn't put out a update for MX-15/16. (didn't feel like installing KDE on MX-15/16 to test it)

Re: MX 17 Repository: The Backported Debian Kernel Thread

I figured out a way (actually two ways) to get it to use the amdgpu driver for my Kabini gpu with the 4.17 kernel. First, here's the inxi output: $ inxi -SGxxx System: Host: mx1 Kernel: 4.17.0-1-amd64 x86_64 bits: 64 compiler: gcc v: 6.3.0 Desktop: Xfce 4.12.3 tk: Gtk 2.24.25 info: xfce4-panel wm: X...

Re: MX 17 Repository: The Backported Debian Kernel Thread

I haven't been able to get the amdgpu driver to work on my Kabini GPU with 4.16 or 4.17 kernels. I'm familiar with the boot parameters mentioned in Stevo's askubuntu link (radeon.si_support=*, radeon.cik_support=*, amdgpu.si_support=*, amdgpu.cik_support=*) , and they used to work okay for me with 4...
