Re: Ideas for a "Quick Start" document

Zeh: My feeling is that this is a bit contradictory with all the so easy to use tools the devs have came up with. I even think that from the point of view of ease of use MX already is a newbie distro. To become a proper newbie distro MX would just need a sort of "Quick Start" document, as suggested...

Re: Translating icewm.pot

In literal #32 of the IceWM.pot,
it was
-- EN [1 ] . . ES [2 ]
changed it to read:
+ EN [1 ] . . ES [1 ]

If that isn't correct, please advise.
Thanks.

Re: Where's Warren?

Interesting, but I don't think Warren is a principal in OmegaMepis.com.

Re: ssd trim

I have understood that MX runs trim auto-magically. Looking for /var/log/trim.log, shows the following: *** Sat, 04 Aug 2018 07:59:11 -0400 *** /DATA: 31.4 GiB (33667366912 bytes) trimmed /: 9.6 GiB (10269773824 bytes) trimmed *** Sat, 11 Aug 2018 11:00:43 -0400 *** /DATA: 41.1 GiB (44108963840 byte...

Re: [WORKAROUND] Krusader wont open iso files again

Yeah, bad news.
I don't use the network features much.

Krusader will probably fix the glitch with the ISO soon.
I haven't used it much since they moved to KDE
but expect them to be quick to fix the problem.

Re: Brand NEW IBM PC AT 1988

I was a big fan of DR-DOS. Worked great until MSFT added a condition that either checked for DR-DOS or checked for MS-DOS, and inserted about 60 seconds of wait and a message that an unofficial version of DOS was found. Caused lots of consternation among the users. It was subtle but effective. Needl...

Re: SOLVED Google Earth fails to install

Yep.
Downloading the new, google-earth-pro-stable_current_amd64.deb
about 53 MB, for Debian/Ubuntu from Google.

We'll soon see how that is going to work.

Well, it installed OK.
Started OK.
I'm going to have to do some reading to make it useful.
Probably needs more horsepower.

Re: SOLVED Google Earth fails to install

Curious. I installed googleearth about a month ago from the MX repo. googleearth-package-1.2.2 which downloaded and installed version 6.0.3.2197+1.2.0-1 for MX-17.1_x64. Just checked and there is no version available in MX test repo? It runs generally well; as I remember, it gave an error saying tha...
