Re: disable caps lock key

OK thank you. However the first one from kmathern does not work. Too bad because it seems wicked simple too. That's strange, it works for me. I said earlier "I think it still works" because I hadn't actually tried it yet with MX-17, but I just booted into a MX-17 live-session to try it an...

Re: disable caps lock key

Read this thread: viewtopic.php?f=93&t=37161, it's from a couple years ago but I think it still works.

Re: Many non-free packages installed by default.

I didn't know that even existed, much less that it is installed by default in MX-17. Will add that to the list for the next Manual, thanks. Hi Jerry. What - vrms? I'm not sure if it was installed by default though. I thought that package was well known - think it's just for Debian/Ubuntu distros. I...

Re: Volume scrolling set

there is another volume control i used in the mx15 days. it would let you ramp up beyond 100% with just the mouse. I'll check my stuff and see if I can find the name of it. it was in the debian jessie repo. I use Pasystray for volume control, it's also available in the Debian Stretch repo It'll go ...

Re: MX 17 and AMD R7 260x

MX-17 uses the radeon driver by default for your AMD R7 260X GPU. You might try enabling the amdgpu driver by creating a /etc/modprobe.d/amdgpu_si_cik.conf file with what's shown below, and then uncomment the last 2 lines. edit: Reboot to get the changes to take effect. #############################...

Re: Update Error

Your terminal output shows it trying to download a 0.2.1 version but from what I can see the 0.2.2 version is what's currently in the repos. $ apt-cache policy live-usb-maker-gui live-usb-maker-gui: Installed: 0.2.2 Candidate: 0.2.2 Version table: *** 0.2.2 0 500 http://antix.daveserver.info/jessie/...

Re: Dolphin and K3b in Xfce

The "get hot new stuff" downloader in dolphin seems to been have been broken by changes in the kde-store since the Stretch version was released, but was patched in the newer Ubuntu Zesty 16.12 dolphin, so I'll port that over and see if it works. Is the rootactions-servicemenu thing we use...

Re: Display Brightness

Great. I installed that and I can set the display brightness now. Problem solved. Thanks a lot. I assume xbacklight worked for you in MX16. MX17: installed MX 17 yesterday. Facing the same problem on it. I am not able to save the brightness level set in the last login. It gets set to maximum level ...
