you can use mx-user-manager to delete the demo account if you wish.

lenovo s21e - antiX-19 beta 2 (live-USB)
FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

Cool. Well done. :number1:
Just in case you would have the desire to boot from your LiveUSB stick again:
Do create a new file /boot/grub/custom.cfg (create and edit as user root):

Code: Select all

# this is /boot/grub/custom.cfg
# to boot from Live USB stick using Plop Boot Manager
menuentry "Plop Boot Manager" {
    search --no-floppy --set=root --file /boot/plpbt.bin
    linux16 /boot/plpbt.bin
and extract plpbt.bin from PloP Bootmanager downloaded zip-file and copy to /boot/plpbt.bin.
