Re: Security/surveillance camera & compatible software

I used motion for 2 years in my computer shop running up to 3 cameras. Don't know what people are referring to with command line, almost everything can be done by simply editing config files in place through Thunar and a regular text file. Only real issue I had was I forgot to set the PC up to use l...

Article on zdnet, Hands on with MX Linux

Found this news snippet in my Chrome news feed. The authors biggest issue was localisation, and it appears very clear to me they posted this without really looking too deeply into what we really provide and without spending any time here in the forums. They do make a valid point re localisation from...

Re: Remote Access testing

ssh-conduit-antiX +1 smallest footprint I have built it into my personal remaster and all of our home systems run it. Requires each machine to have either a fixed IP address, or the Router/AP have a rule to provide a fixed IP address to each specific MAC address (my preferred method) plus port forw...

Re: A view of managing System Maintenance

Yeah, I did wonder how that KISS would be taken and hoping the tone of my response would lean more towards the sweetheart as it was certainly not intended in the negative. The comment about falling in love was intended for you, not the world at large. Usually, passion such as yours provides the cata...

Re: A view of managing System Maintenance

@boombaby, the very thing you are looking for was provided for a closed source system where a single entity controlled all and every aspect of what would be presented to their users and by and large, most of all that it did was modify existing registry keys for the single controlling database on whi...

Re: Random lockups - possibly only Intel CPUs

From what I read so far, I'd put the most likely cause for the total freeze lockups in the lap of your graphics hardware before the Intel Chipset. Have a real good look at what improvements each available kernel has and try the one that appears to have the most beneficial fixes. You could also try m...

Re: Random Scroll Wheel Speed?

I have found Microsoft wireless pointing devices are the most frequent offenders in this regard and it's well known the remedy when a microsoft mouse scroll is out of control, (like a page at a time), simply unplug and reconnect the USB dongle, issue solved. As for problem solved, it ain't gonna hap...

Re: Setting up MX-17.1 to work as a PC-based Wi-Fi router system

Why not virtualise your router using MX as the host. If you have the hardware, you have what it takes, provided the hardware is supported through the VM. A routers footprint is very small compared to a full blown desktop and you could and should run it headless too, logging into the routers webGUI u...

Re: Read access to linuxfs, rootfs and initrd.gz from Windows

Neither, good find. When I'm forced into a windows environment, such as at work, I refuse to use their tools for compression/decompression, I only use 7-Zip.

Re: LXQt and KDE respins - personal projects

Cheers Adrian, looks nice as you say, though like you, I'm not a KDE fan either, especially of their plasma menu, which I find clumsy and slow, but my wife uses it so I've had to make my own personal remaster for her. Yours is certainly a nice looking model. My red/green colour deficiency keeps me a...
