Re: MX-17 Repository - The Double Commander thread

Just a FYI note. I've tried both DC-0.9.5 versions, direct from DC site, QT4.48 & GTK2.24.31 My eyes can't tell much difference between them. I did find an Invalid floating point op on QT Issue #2329 that so far hasn't appeared on GTK2. Subjectively, I did think the QT was a bit faster but I don't k...

Re: Tutorial(s): Thunar Custom Actions--- simplify what you do

Thanks for the tut, Handy.
Going to give it another go.
Probably more useful for me on the netbook; although it's not getting much use these days,
but should be quicker on laptop, as well

Sorry, we got off topic a bit.
Now back to those wonderfully useful, TCAs

Re: fresh install of MX Linux 18.3 - which steps are the next ones?

Great responses to your question. I would suggest if there is some particular app that you are considering, ask about it here in the forum. Chances are someone who is using it can help. There is also a forum section for the requests for a backport of an app that isn't already in the MX main repo or ...

Re: What would be the easiest to play 8 bit games on MX?

That's cool. The Vic Emulator, I suppose. The
C-64 was my intro to PCs. Had some great games that even I, a non-gamer, got drawn into. Many happy hours spent.

Maybe, just maybe...

Re: LibreOffice recommends: Upgrade to LibO-6.2.5

I was using the 6.2.4 version from the LibreOffice since it's release without problems for my current use case of mainly Calc, Writer & Draw. Currently using the 6.2.5 version. The major user interface change with 6.2 is the NotebookBar; which is, IMHO, an improvement over the old look, more intuiti...

LibreOffice recommends: Upgrade to LibO-6.2.5

tl;dr. Upgrade to LibO-6.2.5 This may only be relevant if you are using a version downloaded direct from LibO website; otherwise, the recommendation seems to be generalized: "Prior to 6.2.5 it is possible to construct malicious documents..." or dependent on the distribution. (Debian has taken care o...

Re: MX-17 Repository - The Double Commander thread

Thanks, good to know.
My opinion was incorrect.
I stayed with the gtk2 version since Xfce4 used it.
I'm just accustomed to the look. :)
I'll give the qt version a chance.

Re: How-to convert antiX to an XFCE4 based Distro (tutorial)

I made some tentative efforts with 17.4.1-base and ran into some missing seldom used utilities; therefore, decided to stay with antiX-19-full-x32, after the release version, for my EeePC netbook.

Re: MX-17 Repository - The Double Commander thread

I use the gtk version on MX. Theming is better than it was several versions ago. Haven't tried DC-qt for several years. I believe you can install both, then execute your choice to test. I think the common & plugin dependencies are same for both versions. No lights nor strong enough internet to test ...
