Re: pm-suspend asking for root password

It happened again, but this time I was ready for it. Turns out screenshooter was working, but hidden under the authentication message. Suspend works just fine when initiated through the MX shutdown menu, but fails when called through a countdown timed power management event. I set the Power manageme...

Re: Easy Wifi hotspot

Type ICS into the search box on the top right of this (and every) page and you'll find my thread on Internet Connection Sharing. The instructions are drop dead easy and there's a video link too.

Re: MX-17.1: Burning a scratched DVD-R - bad idea?

The near on microscopic tracks on a single layer DVD, if lifted off the media and straightened out would give you a line measuring close to 7.5 miles long. To make a comparison, the scratches you can see with your naked eye can be compared to giant fissures on a road that will swallow a car or truck...

Re: Meld

Have you tried it first to see if there are any issues running on MX first? From the MELD site...... Trying out the current version One of Meld's lesser-known features is that it's easy to run without installing it. This is great for just trying out the current version, or for checking to see whethe...

Re: [Solved... but with a GRRR]XFCE Power Manager, Presentation Mode and suspect GUI design

I love that presentation mode, it's especially useful if I'm streaming content to a TV or performing a very long operation like a badblock or data recovery on a hard disk drive. It's easier to enable presentation mode, dim the screen to lowest setting and check back in the morning, next day etc. Tha...

Re: Intel Rapid Storage mount on MX Linux

Installing mdadm is not enough, it has to be loaded into memory for it to pick up anything, so the reply above was missing a vital ingredient. As for using MS'x remaster, Short answer, no. Ubuntu uses systemd, MX uses sysvinit and there are other irreconcilable differences. It may be possible, but i...

Re: Intel Rapid Storage mount on MX Linux

Back home for just a moment, so I can answer you. The reason to make a live USB of your own is because that really is the best way to access the RAID volume, having the module available from boot. It is possible to install first, then access the RAID, but without the module loaded at boot on a live ...

Re: Intel Rapid Storage mount on MX Linux

Step 1, remaster the Live-USB. This is drop dead easy and the most important thing to start with is a fast good quality USB3 Thumb drive with a minimum recommended size of 8GB. It's possible with a 4GB, but you're just not going to get a fast drive in such a pathetic size and you could still run out...

Re: Internet Connection Sharing tutorial

Right there with you on that one. I personally have no issue with it running either, but keeping things light and tight is always a worthy goal when distributing to the masses.
