Re: MX 14.4 Repos - What are the current/final urls for EOL Snapshot?

For any repositories beginning with main.mepis-deb.org, replace that part of the url with mxrepo.com
The full list for MX-14 is here: https://mxlinux.org/wiki/system/repos-mx-14
It does not list any repositories containing main.mepis-deb

Re: REQUEST: Remmina

Remmina can be installed with MXPI from debian-backports. For some reason it wasn't ready for the release of stretch, but they added it to stretch-backports last month.

Re: Does this 64-bit Falkon Appimage work for you, or it just me?

It runs in my MX-15 install - although running a flash game locked it up after a bit.

Re: Synaptic - Remaining / Complete Packages - Where are they?

All of those show up by default in Synaptic here. For example, here is the Thunderbird Calendar plugin

Re: Where did make-kpkg go?

The make-kpkg command is found in the kernel-package package. For some reason debian didn't include kernel-package for the stretch release so it wasn't included in MX-17 by default - but it has now been added to debian backports for stretch. You can install it using MX Tools -> Package Installer -> ...

Re: Constant WiFi disconnects across multiple machines - Wicd?

Wicd works well on MX-17 - but install it first while you still have a connection! Install wicd-gtk for the "point & click" version since there's also a command line one (wicd-cli).
Then you can uncheck the Enable Networking box in Network Manager and set up your connection in wicd.

Re: [solved] Gis Weather not loading for some reason

I just submitted a bug report on their GitHub. There's been little activity there in the last 2 years but they did change their internal copyright notices to 2018 so the developer will probably see it.

Re: 35 second delay after GRUB

Hmm, cryptswap1 has a random key...
If a new random key is generated for the swap partition on each boot, how could it be resumed from? I have no experience dealing with encrypted swap but ISTM that you would have to clear the RESUME variable so it doesn't try to.
