Re: Nov 10 updates - grub-pc

I also have multiple boot, UEFI grub controlled by the current installation of MX. I chose to keep the existing configuration, but Synaptic appeared to go through the update grub routine anyway. I was bothered (my grub is customised) so I rebooted. I'm glad to say that my grub menu was unchanged.

Re: MX 17 Repository: The Quod Libet (music player) Thread

Thanks, Stevo. Quod Libet is my audio player of choice, so I will check this out as soon as I have time later this week.

Re: Invalid partition table!

If your system is running well, I wouldn't bother. My first installation (of Mepis) ran for years without problems on a disk with a misaligned partition.

Minor error message in Synaptic

I've noticed for a while that the terminal output in Synaptic starts with:
Gtk-Message **: Failed to load module "atk-bridge" at /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl5/5.24/Gtk2.pm line 126, <> line 3.
This appears in duplicate but doesn't seem to affect the process.

Re: how to install MX

Boot the MX Live USB, start the installer and when you get the problematic message, press PrintScreen. Save the snapshot & post here.

Re: Can anyone recommend to me a cheapish, current model notebook that loves Linux?

+1 for Lenovo. My X220 was £199 a year ago. It's good on power, running 13 watts at idle, max 35 watts under full load. You would probably want to add some speakers - the sound quality is OK for 5 or 10 minutes, but it's rather tinny.

It's the same mechanism that controls my use of the Forum. When I'm checking posts throughout the day, 'Newest Posts' always shows the exact number of topics with unread posts - there are never more or less!

Re: Batch conversion of .csv to .xls

Thanks. I don't have Excel (and have never used any Microsoft apps), but I would think the same thing is possible with a LO macro. That's probably a big learning curve for me - my experience with scripting is Lotus 123 (DOS), Lotus Approach and Filemaker. All slightly different and full of traps whe...
