Re: Request updating RedNotebook to most recent version

The ./run script runs it without installing;
but redbook is no longer displayed in Synaptic?

Re: Request updating RedNotebook to most recent version

[Installed] Teste v1.11 from the *.tgz on the website,

Looking forward to an MX deb.

Re: MX-15 repository - The doublecmd thread

:) Well, maybe that should read it's running all day.

We could sure use some water in the reservoirs,
but a tsunami would be excessive
and would drown Colombia.
Sure glad it was a system test!

Re: Favorite Browser

I use Slimjet-32-bit for the last few months. I used Chrome mostly, until they announced the death of support for 32 bit. The Great Suspender extension stops links after 30 mins. I usually keep Dillo for reading documentation, and such. I keep trying Midori and Qupzilla to see if they are more stabl...

Re: [SOLVED] Lost Right Option on Desktop

Thanks eugen-b.
You're right, impatience is probably not the best solution.

Which is the config that handles the mouse?
That's always been my problem.

Oh, I see. I looked in the directories but didn't see mouse.
I'll make a note of your tip, just in case.

Re: [SOLVED] Lost Right Option on Desktop

Re: Lost Right Option on Desktop

Interesting. For starters, copy and paste the output of $ inxi -Fxz into a box in a forum post. That will give some information on your installation. Have you tried the mouse with another distro? to eliminate possiblity of a hardware problem--mouse, HDD, etc. There is always the possibility that you...
