Re: Packages not flowing upstream into Debian

How do "Snap" and "Flatpack" fit into this discussion? I'm not a developer but based on what I've read I though the purpose of these tools was to allow developers to create packages that were somewhat distro agnostic, and would allow for wider deployment without the need adapt pa...

Re: Remote Login

In answer to your first question, I can recommend Remmina, which is in the MX-16 / 17 repo. Easy to set up and use.

I'll defer on your 2nd question to folks who use persistence USB tools.

Re: MX_17 Audio and streaming issues

Got it. When I searched Google under the name of your device before, I was shown a different / older USB device. Still, aplay -l output suggests that the analog output of your device is not being found by ALSA. That might explain why, if you're attempting to get audio though the line level output ja...

Re: MX_17 Audio and streaming issues

Looking at the output of aplay -l. I'm not familiar with that particular creative labs device, but it appears that ALSA recognizes it as a device that has no analog output. Is that correct? In other words, the creative labs device is connected to your computer via USB, but is the output from the cre...

Re: MX_17 Audio and streaming issues

Also - noticed you mentioned that your audio device is a Creative Sound Blaster X-fi Elite Pro. That's an older device and used to require a driver to work under Linux. That may still be the case, and the driver is still available for download on Creative's site.

Re: MX_17 Audio and streaming issues

Sound output in Linux can still be a bit of an adventure, particularly for those of us who use a USB sound device. I've had some success, but not without some tussling with settings. Also, if you're playing back audio files that have resolution higher than 16bit/44.1 kHz, Pulseaudio is your enemy si...

Re: Replacement for decibel audio player

deadbeef audio player is a minimalist player by design and sounds excellent. If you want to add functionality there are additional plugins available, but I've never found it necessary to use them.
