Re: What is MX Workbench 19.3?

It is a utility tool for running from USB to repair and or fix another installation.

For installation, use the MX Linux 18.1 release,
or preferred, the MX Linux 18.1 monthly snapshot,
http://mxrepo.com/snapshots/MX-18.1_March_x64.iso.
There is also one for 32 bit in the Monthly Snapshots.
