Re: Thunar in dual panel?????

Crtl + t aprirà un'altra scheda Thunar. Puoi avere tutte le schede che vuoi aperte, ma devi stare attento perché non è sempre chiaro in quale scheda stai operando

Re: MX-17 Release Candidate 1 - Feedback

I still prefer unetbootin because dd mode causes an entire flash drive to become completely useless for any other operation, which is a terrible waste when using 16, 32 & 64GB drives, or when a drive is to be shared across differing operating systems.

Re: MX-17 Release Candidate 1 - Feedback

When the MX installer is told to use the whole drive for installation, it creates the partitions dependent on what type of Live-boot environment it running in, e.g., EFI boot or Legacy boot, and as a part of the process, it marks one partition as bootable and the rest is music to my ears. The same i...

Re: MX-17 Beta 3 Feedback

Just because you have broadband doesn't mean the rest of the world does, so removing gnomeppp woiuld be a foolish move. We aim to have a prepacked distro that has enough of the most commonly required features, tools and recreational assists to make it attractive to the widest audience. Your preferen...

Re: MX-17 Beta 3 Feedback

OK, I've checked the other laptop I test installed onto and there are no partitions marked with the boot flag, yet it still boots. I checked the current installation and sure enough, the / partition had been marked as bootable, so I reset my E330, installed as before to manual partitions and achieve...

Re: MX-17 Beta 3 Feedback

Boot flag should not be necessary with GRUB to MBR as evidenced by my other install tests to different hardware.

Re: MX-17 Beta 3 Feedback

Cool. I saw a post on the MX facebook page from a user who complained about our GRUB and whether the user is right or wrong, I have to say I have experienced an issue with GRUB on not a few occasions when using my ageing Lenovo E330 laptop. This model is known for having some issues with the bios, h...

Re: MX-17 Beta 3 Feedback

I tried to view a heap of pics saved as png files on a test machine and when I went to view them, feh was the default - YUK!. I ended up with over 20 instances of feh in the taskbar that had to be closed individually, a task not made easy on a laptop when no external mouse is available. Having the d...

Re: MX-17 Beta 1 Feedback Thread

Looks like a tumbler type daemon is hogging resources again. I had an issue un-mounting a USB device with a large 1.8GB car audio firmware file after copying its contents to my SSD. Copy process happened at 95MBPS, so it was over in moments, but after leaving it for 6-7 minutes while taking a phone ...

Re: MX-17 Beta 1 Feedback Thread

Grab handles on screen borders can be a bit hard to grab. Has the padding been applied as per earlier versions?
