Re: [SOLVED] Multi-line replacing in large text files.

your %s line is simply missing a backslash in front of the opening square bracket for [END]; the following works for me: :%s/^\[POI\]\nType=0x2800\nLabel=MAPCENTRE\nData0=(-\d\d.\d\d\d\d\d,\d\d\d.\d\d\d\d\d)\n\[END\]// and to remove surrounding newlines include them as optional elements of your patt...

Re: Histoire de MAJ

Bonjour personnellement je n'utilise pas les snapshots mais je pense que ce sont juste des mises à jour des images ISO pour éviter à une installation fraîche de devoir immédiatement installer quelques centaines de mégabytes de mise à jour. Les MAJ via le gestionnaire mx suffisent pour une installati...

Re: Restore Whisker menu MX default settings

If the testing repository is not meant to be permanently enabled (and can be harmful when it accidentally is), wouldn't it be a good enhancement to have mx-package-installer warn the user when it detects this situation at startup ?

Re: Performance en berne dans quelques applications

Dans la liste des programmes du task manager, y-a-t'il un programme du nom de "compton" ?
Sinon, pour le configurer, voir mx-tweak, onglet "compositor"

Re: Performance en berne dans quelques applications

Ce que vous décrivez correspond peut-être au "screen tearing" ?
Dans ce cas ça vaut la peine d'essayer "compton"; l'utilisez-vous déjà ?

Re: No GRUB on dual boot install

If windows still boots, you may want to try easybcd and add a "mx-linux" entry to your MS bootloader. I believe this would only work if you have a working grub installed to your linux root partition (sda7), though, as it chain-loads. Of course you wouldn't be using a linux bootloader anymore, but th...

Re: Transfer Windows 8 installation to a new drive

I have a question wrt clonezilla. I have used it in the past to transfer WinXP(or Win7) to bigger disks, and it worked perfectly, even fixing the (NT) bootloader. Does that still work with WIn8/10 and possibly UEFI/GPT instead of BIOS/MBR partitioning, or does one need extra step(s) to get a working...

Re: MX repos in Debian

For firefox, using the built-in incremental update mechanism also has the slight advantage of requiring smaller downloads than upgrading from debian packages (which always contain a full release).

Re: LXQt and KDE respins - personal projects

i've clicked around a couple mx utilities and the only oddity i can confirm is that the "advanced options" button of the usb-live -maker does *not* expand the dialog to reveal additional controls. This is with KDE 5.12 (from the neptune repository) on MX17.1 The system is using the regular QT 5.7 li...
