Re: Sandisk Cruzer problem

Have you tried formatting it using Gparted? (Make certain that you have the correct drive selected if you try this)

Is a Windows machine available that you can try in in?

Re: Shut Down taking an age...

Is this a fresh install?
Did the problem start after you changed or added something?

Re: Hide Dropbox icon in Notification Area

If you update the current version, you will already be aligned with the latest snapshot. There will be an upgrade path across versions unless the De...

Re: overview of applications

Perhaps an easier way for you is to run MX live, open Synaptic, and search for the packages you already use. If there is something that is not available, you could then ask here to see if it might be made available. Chris That won't show the packages in Test Repo or Popular Apps. OP could also sear...
