Re: MX Distro for "not new" users

That's a rude post. It's not just new users. It's not the point of learning. Some people can't ever understand the command line like me that can't ever understand the command line no matter how much they try to learn it. I don't mean to be rude, But it's true many many people do not want to learn i...

Re: MX Distro for "not new" users

I Think that the real thing is that with Linux and MX is that we have many choices and some newbies just are not use to that being they come from an OS culture that only offers one way.

Re: MX Distro for "not new" users

I never ever seen anywhere where the discussion of the C.L.I. and the G.U.I. to be so civil and informative as on here. It's refreshing to see this. You really get to see the points of view about it. We all have areas in knowledge where we struggle and others we excel on. For me the command line was...

Yes. Pay close attention on the jurisdiction of those VPNs. All of those VPNs are in the 14 eyes. Not good because those governments keep the logs. Still good information but incomplete because there are so many more VPNs.

Re: Firefox doesn't bookmark

In your home folder look for .cache a hidden folder. Go in it and if you find a mozilla folder, delete it. Then try again with your new install of firefox. Earl Thanks, that worked.

Re: Wifi Asus USB-AC51 doesn't work

Sounds like another ASUS software run device that's suppose be a hardware. I wish you good luck with it. I went through the lies of ASUS last week. You might look into the 4.20 kernel that's out to see if it will work for you. https://itsfoss.com/kernel-4-20-release/

Re: MX Distro for "not new" users
