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,...

Copy of discussion from Facebook page Worked and installed successfully but watching details in synaptic while it installed it did a couple of strange things, it printed configuration file could not be read five times, then proceeded with the install, then when it got all done it said, "no package s...

Re: Comparing HD Drive contents?

Using the MX Package Installer, install the package meld. It's in the develpoment section, or you can simply search for it. 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.
No it doesn't, $11 to download the most recent version, $49 to get a years worth of access.

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...

Re: Security/surveillance camera & compatible software

I used motion for 2 years in my computer shop running up to 3 cameras. Don't know what people are referring to with command line, almost everything can be done by simply editing config files in place through Thunar and a regular text file. Only real issue I had was I forgot to set the PC up to use l...

Article on zdnet, Hands on with MX Linux

Found this news snippet in my Chrome news feed. The authors biggest issue was localisation, and it appears very clear to me they posted this without really looking too deeply into what we really provide and without spending any time here in the forums. They do make a valid point re localisation from...

Re: Remote Access testing

ssh-conduit-antiX +1 smallest footprint I have built it into my personal remaster and all of our home systems run it. Requires each machine to have either a fixed IP address, or the Router/AP have a rule to provide a fixed IP address to each specific MAC address (my preferred method) plus port forw...
