Re: New Macs with T2 security chips won't boot Linux

To be a little more concise, it's not such that they can't boot Linux, it's that the signature used by Linux based distros is not in the T2chips list of trusted signatures.

Re: Default video viewer guvcview says "no video device found"

Try Opening the MX Menu, then take your hand off your mouse and type vlc. Does VLC Media Player come up in the search results and does it run when you click on it?

Re: A piece of history

I presented that page to the LUG 8 years ago Gordon. Made a copy of the text and have kept it in my archives. It really resounded with me because when I first signed up as a Microsoft Registered System builder, my welcoming letter had had no assistance or guidance as they promised, instead it and th...

Adding LVM support to MX-Live

MX Linux Live does not come with support for Logical Volume Management, but it literally only takes a minute to add it to a running Live MX Linux session. I had a job to complete, so I gained access to the drives contents as I had done before, then I wondered if any such information was available wi...

Re: Android-Studio

A bit more about the OP, copied from our discussion on the FB page (which started out a bit rocky, but an understanding was reached) I run a service that offers, among other things, public Linux shell servers, with both ssh for text and x2go for full graphics and sound access, with centos6, centos7,...

Once Meld s installed, open it and click on Directory, a new line of buttons appear. in the first button, select one of the directories and in the second button, select the oth...

Re: Plasma Mobile

Why don't you go ahead and download neon and run it in a VM for yourself, I'm sure doing that will answer most of your questions. I personally think it is an excellent project but it is very very early software developer code quality, not end user code. If I remember rightly they were talking about ...

It is good but it costs ~50 bucks. Not worth it if you just want to use Clonezilla occasionally.

Re: Transfer Windows 8 installation to a new drive

Before you do anything, kill all the unnecessary restore points to regain oodles of space before you start. The Windows 8 defaults to an exceedingly large percentage of available space for system restore points, I've seen values like 40%, installed size 24GB with Office and plugins, then restore poi...
