Re: MX-15 Beta 2 Feedback

ran a live remaster with a usb stick and the chrombook yesterday. I restricted the remaster to 1 core because the chromebook is passively cooled and the processor is underpowered. took a while, but it did work in the end.

btw, working on a wiki entry for running live on the acer c720 chromebook.

Re: MX-15 Beta 2 Feedback

Mute/Unmute now works without icon disappearing. Slight anomaly, if volume hiked above 100% then muted, volume mutes, sliders go back to 100%, unmuting leaves them there. But they can be hiked up again. I do not consider this a problem, just a bit of an oddity. By the way, the same issue exists in ...

Re: Package "held back"

Today apt-notifier showed two updates: firmware-linux-nonfree (0.43~bpo70+1 => 2015018-2mcr120+1) smtube (15.5.17-1mcr120+1 => 15.11.0-1mcr120+1) The firmware package is being "held back" according to apt-notifier. However, Synaptic shows both packages as "upgradable" without mentioning anything ab...

Re: MX-15 Beta 2 Feedback

How do I correct this error? I could not find that package in the repos. Messing with environment variables is beyond me. configure: error: Package requirements (gtk+-3.0 >= 3.0) were not met: No package 'gtk+-3.0' found Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed s...

Re: MX-15 Beta 2 Feedback

Do we have a fix for the volumeicon disappearing from the notification area if volume is above 100%. This post refers to an alternate volume control. I added it to the tracker as I do not see it there. http://forum.mepiscommunity.org/viewtopic.php?p=374344#p374344 EDIT: Can this be confirmed by oth...

Re: MX-15 Beta 2, dedicated thread on SUSPEND

I've been researching some stuff for my chromebook, and came across this:

Re: MX-15 Snapshot and/or Systemback

Ran MX snapshot this morning. I suspected I didn't have room for the operation to complete but the app said I probably did. I didn't though. 15 gb partition 11gb used 3.3 gb available. The program doesn't tell you if you have or not enough room, it shows you what you have and let you decide, so if ...
