Re: Steam Play/Proton?

I think you still have to enable Proton in Steam Settings.

Re: MX Snapshot tool

Do you have it mounted somewhere? You should be able to change the target to something like /mnt/sda2 but for that to work you need to make sure sda2 is mounted first.

Re: Computer is lagging when there is high I/O on ext. HDD

It's normal to some extent, I think you can improve this if you know a program causes it by lowering the IO priority with ionice. https://linux.die.net/man/1/ionice

This is great!

@Adrian: you might want to hold off reworking Repo Manager as we are expecting at least one UK mirror in the near future.
Sure, PM/email me when you want to add them to the repo manager.

Re: Flatpak removal

Switching back and forth between tabs on mxpi to search for apps is very easy. The only thing that would add to user experience is, that search field entry would keep entered text during switching tabs OK, I changed that, can you please give it a test and see if it works as you wish? (going to the ...

Re: Flatpak removal

Re: MX Menu editor - adding new app window disappears and newly added app not instantly reflected

I think it's possible to select the window from the windows tabs but it's obviously a bug, I have a fix it should show up shortly (give it a day) in the regular updates. Thanks for the detailed report, mx-menu-editor is a bit of a black sheep of the MX apps I don't really use it so I cannot catch th...

Terminal=...
StartupNotify=...
EDIT: OK, I have a fix that that will send the update soon to Tim.
