Re: Debian Social Contract & Code of Conduct

Curious that so many focus on the Forums when neither set of rules has anything to do with the forums but rather with communication of issues and organizational conduct regarding the OS and how items are dealt with between users (aka. buyers) and problems which may arise. Not so curious since most ...

Re: Multiple programs stopped working or having errors after update

The problem appears to be that geany-plugin-markdown and geany-plugin-markdown were removed from the Buster version of geany-plugins. The source code still has them but they're disabled in the debian/control and debian/rules files. If you remove those two plugins then the impasse will be resolved. I...

Re: Last major update: Gimp 2.10 needs version "0.1.58-1~mx17+1" of libbabl-0.1-0

You have installed the Debian-Multimedia version of libbabl which uses an epoch to show it's version as being higher than ours. Disable the deb-multimedia.org repo, and Gui solution: Open Synaptic, select libbabl-0.1-0, use Package -> Force version to select the MX version and apply. or CLI solution...

Re: Problems after todays updates

Installing nVidia drivers with ddm-mx on MX-17 leaves those drivers auto-removable. Upgrading them works properly but leaves the new versions auto-removable as well. It is being noticed with the big update but it's not new. Auto-remove is not set up to run by default and any user who had been using ...

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

I just installed Mate and Wine into my MX-17.1 upgraded to MX-18. The problem you are having may be because Mate has to pull in some packages from the MX18/dev repository for each of those installs, and I believe that repo is disabled on the MX-18b1 LiveUSB. Those packages will be moved to main in a...

Re: Wow, somebody was busy uploading our ISOs to archive.org

Is there any way to delete from archive an upload or it goes against what archive.org is supposed to be? Any user may remove items they have uploaded. If you hold the copyright on an item someone else has uploaded without a license or permission you can submit that information & they will remove th...

Re: Has anyone suceeded in setting up nfs shares

Does /media/wilf/New_Drive have the appropriate permissions? The Wiki says they have to be rw for everybody (I think executable is optional). It should look something like this: $ ls -al /media/wilf total 12 drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Dec 10 14:56 . drwxr-xr-x 13 root root 4096 Dec 10 14:56 .. drwx...

Re: computers not seeing scanner

The /etc/hosts file matches up numeric ip addresses with hostnames and what you put in your /etc/hosts contains neither the hostname avahi-discover identified nor an ip address.
What you should have entered in /etc/hosts is

Code: Select all
