Just to clarify, antiX does not use LXDE. antiX does use some components of LXDE, like the Customize Appearance module (lxappearance), but the default environment is icewm with the rox pinboard as a desktop. You also get options for fluxbox and jwm, with additional options for either no desktop, the...

I believe there is a syanptic.conf in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d folder. The settings here are the same as what synclient modifies although the listing format is slighty different (easy to understand though). You can add any settings you want to be persistent here and they will start as the default when X...

Make sure you use either label or uuid in /etc/fstab. I have a feeling that you will get duplicate entries shown in Thunar. anti is right in that you'll get duplicate entries for each filesystem you mount with fstab. However, if you are mounted already, the other entry WILL NOT WORK and can be "hid...
Yes, Qupzilla seems to be a very capable browser. Firefox is my default browser, mainly because it's more familiar, but I always keep several different browsers available for special purposes. For example, I use Tor Browser to hide my IP address and Chrome to run the latest version of flash. Regard...

you may want to check your netbook bios. my asus has a software switch that turns the webcam off at the hardware level, and without the windows utility, I have to re-enable in bios. If I leave it stuck in off, it doesn't show up in anitX.
I don't quite get it--why not install antiX and be done with it? MX-14 has some important differences over antiX 13.2 if you are going the custom-DE route. 1. mepis community repo enabled - big plus here. to a lesser extent wheezy-backports. 2. Different set of default packages. You might say MX's ...
Well, I got around to installing the LXDE meta package. With about 20 minutes of tweaking I now have the LXDE desktop I'm used to. Only one glitch - I can't run synaptic from the menu. I suspect it's asking for the password but I don't see the prompt... I think you may need the lxpolkit authenticat...

Thanks, I see that now. Would a person coming to the site for the first time see that? I didn't. I was afraid a newcomer might only see the videos and not spend enough time looking at the tabs if there attention was constantly drawn back to the moving box. Just my take on it. It may be fine. I cert...
