Re: Firefox Printing Issues

No problem for me. I use a HP Deskjet 1055 with the HP drivers and software. What printer and drivers + software you use?

Re: Set / ownership to root, now MX hangs on boot

pemartins It's good to see you got MX Linux up and running as I expected. I highly recommend that n the Edit menu of Thunar under Configure Custom Actions, delete Ownership to Root and Ownership to user to prevent that ever happening to you again.

Re: MediaHuman Youtube Downloader

Looks like it's for Ubuntu which in that case can break MX Linux. I use the Firefox extension: YouTube Video and Audio Downloader 0.7.6 which works well.

Re: Set / ownership to root, now MX hangs on boot

@OP: sorry if i am stating the obvious but -do not panic!- from what i understand, no data is actually lost but fixing your distro(s) would probably be more work than re-installing. Take backup(s) of your home directory (it seems mostly neon had content worth salvaging, if your MX install is fresh ...

Re: Set / ownership to root, now MX hangs on boot

If I reinstall MX without overwriting the Home folder I still have the problem that every freaking file, including in the home directory, is owned by root: Yes, if you keep home as it is, the wrong owner ship will not fixed automatically for you. :eek: That's false because it fixed it the two times...

Re: Set / ownership to root, now MX hangs on boot

Yes in this incident I lost not only one but two operating systems. MX was a recent install but I also lost KDE Neon which was my daily driver and lost all the stuff that is in it. I try to take things lightly but this was heavy stuff. If I reinstall MX without overwriting the Home folder I still h...

Re: Set / ownership to root, now MX hangs on boot

I have been through the same thing as you twice with the only difference is when I selected Open root Thunar here it instead Set ownership to root. The solution is to re-install MX Linux but during the re-install process select preserve Home. This will save your data but not the programs you have in...
