Re: Online translator deepl.com now translates complete word-documents for free

Yes, Linguee is a dictionary. One of the best I've ever found. You could try the link that Gordon posted, < http://www.deepl.com/Translator > Oops. That is your link. :bagoverhead: Google Translator does similar but is a usually too literal and sometimes confusing. I'd rather translate than try to f...

Re: Resume from suspend logs out the system

Well, I haven't had any similar problem, but looking over the inxi output, I'll venture a guess. Your laptop is very new, running the somewhat older, out of date 4.9 kernel.

Re: MX Package Installer and Debian 4.9.0-7-amd64 kernel

So, back to the old tried and true method: Thanks to Stevo. Set up VBox for new kernel as follows: ;; boot the new kernel ;; activate mx test repo (MX Repo Manager is quick) ;; in a terminal, as root: # apt-get update # m-a prepare # apt-get remove virtualbox-dkms # apt-get install virtualbox-dkms #...

Re: Kernel updates

For curiosity, I installed 4.17.0-1-amd64 x86_64
on my T430. So far the only thing I've noticed is that
I have to fix Virtualbox again. :)
