Re: pm-suspend asking for root password

Two more of my systems fell prey to the same behaviour after installing updates and others running Debian based systems have reported it too. Turns out the setting that cures the issue is in the Security tab of the Xfce Power Manager for the heading Light Locker. Change the option for Automatically ...

Re: Easy Wifi hotspot

Ooh, there's also one other consideration, chipset quirks. My 2nd laptop sometimes struggles to connect to some WAP's but my production laptop has no such issues connecting to the same WAP. I've had my phone refuse to connect to some hotspots I have tested too, but my wifes phone connects straight a...

Re: Easy Wifi hotspot

The process is for Internet Connection Sharing so it doesn't matter what network connection types you use, it will work if the devices are properly configured at the hardware level. USB Wifi devices need a little more consideration and in my experience, sometimes the preconfigured drivers are just s...

Re: pm-suspend asking for root password

It happened again, but this time I was ready for it. Turns out screenshooter was working, but hidden under the authentication message. Suspend works just fine when initiated through the MX shutdown menu, but fails when called through a countdown timed power management event. I set the Power manageme...

Re: Easy Wifi hotspot

Type ICS into the search box on the top right of this (and every) page and you'll find my thread on Internet Connection Sharing. The instructions are drop dead easy and there's a video link too.

Re: MX-17.1: Burning a scratched DVD-R - bad idea?

The near on microscopic tracks on a single layer DVD, if lifted off the media and straightened out would give you a line measuring close to 7.5 miles long. To make a comparison, the scratches you can see with your naked eye can be compared to giant fissures on a road that will swallow a car or truck...

Re: Meld

Have you tried it first to see if there are any issues running on MX first? From the MELD site...... Trying out the current version One of Meld's lesser-known features is that it's easy to run without installing it.

Re: [Solved... but with a GRRR]XFCE Power Manager, Presentation Mode and suspect GUI design

I love that presentation mode, it's especially useful if I'm streaming content to a TV or performing a very long operation like a badblock or data recovery on a hard disk drive. It's easier to enable presentation mode, dim the screen to lowest setting and check back in the morning, next day etc. Tha...

Re: Intel Rapid Storage mount on MX Linux

Installing mdadm is not enough, it has to be loaded into memory for it to pick up anything, so the reply above was missing a vital ingredient. As for using MS'x remaster, Short answer, no. Ubuntu uses systemd, MX uses sysvinit and there are other irreconcilable differences. It may be possible, but i...
