Re: MX-18.2 package request: "LAN-Share" (cross-platform tool for simple LAN transfer of files)

Sounds like a lot of hullabaloo for simple operation. MX Linux comes with samba, the Apple/Unix service to enable a cross-platform tool to access and work with Windows networks. We also have a front end graphical tool, the "Samba Server Configuration" to assist with the setup of your Linux host, sim...

Re: Unable to remove a an already created user account

Sounds like you need to re-add some content into the user folder and there are 2 ways of doing that. 1) copy the contents of /etc/skel/ into the users profile folder as root, then change all permissions and group memberships to that user. from there, if the damage is not too great, you will be able ...

Re: HOWTO: Create a Bootable USB with two (or more) partitions.

Might have been a lot of work for no gain where MX Linux is concerned. When booting MX Linux from a writable USB drive, a "Live-usb-storage" folder is provisioned for the user in the demo users home to accommodate saving files from the live system. Anything a user saves or copies in the "Live-sub-st...

Re: Good usb burner

When I saw this post, I immediately thought of my 4kw blow torch because that's what I'd use if I was going to burn a USB thumb drive, however, I digress. I still use unetbootin, it works 90+ % of the time when I want a drive that can be utilised outside of Linux, however, I have to agree with the o...

Re: LXQt and KDE respins - personal projects

I spent a bit more time on this KDE respin and can give more feedback. I found the /etc/skel directory has some cruft left over from Xfce and the same goes for the /root folder. One such example in /etc/skel/.config/autostart is blueman is set to autostart, but as we're not loading Xfce, of course, ...

Re: LXQt and KDE respins - personal projects

On the KDE respin, hibernate was not working in VBox, and neither is it working on my wifes PC, though suspend is working. MX Tweak in Xfce modifies a file to enable hibernation, I wonder if we only need to know which file it is and make the mod for it to work? With the world going crazy on systemd,...

Re: ACER V5-573G suspend mode

Thanks Baz42. I think you misunderstood what I said. My Bluetooth mouse is 100% bluetooth and it does not have a dongle. It requires pairing with a machines internal bluetooth wireless transciever, which is why I called it a "straight bluetooth" mouse. It's an expensive mouse but it takes 2 AA batte...

Re: ACER V5-573G suspend mode

I had something similar after I switched to a straight Bluetooth mouse (no USB dongle). Machine would suspend, then 2 seconds later, it would wake again. Only difference to yours is mine simply would not suspend. Do you by any chance have any straight Bluetooth devices paired with your machine?
