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...

Re: MX-15/16 Expired Key

That mirror is signed using the correct key from the archive keyring deb. Not certain why your machine is displaying a different key... Could you run gpg --list-keys 1552432420 I don't think "1552432420" is a key, I think it's the time (in seconds since the epoch) when the key expired. https://www....

OK, but the subtitle of that Custom Action is:
Compare ISO and md5sum files
I'm not in MX-18 right now, but from what I see in the /etc/skel/.config/Thunar/uca.xml file, the subtitle/description is:
Compare ISO and hash files

Re: trying to create script to extract and check URLs

I think I can extract urls from the MX-18 user manual with this: strings /usr/local/share/doc/mxum.pdf | grep http[s]?:// -E | cut -f2 -d\( | sed 's/)>>$//' | sort Which results in: $ strings /usr/local/share/doc/mxum.pdf | grep http[s]?:// -E | cut -f2 -d\( | sed 's/)>>$//' | sort file:///home/jb/M...
