Sure thing, also, if you have any question about "custom-toolbar" or suggestion please let me know. It's a rather simple tool that you can use to build collection of tools like "MX Tools" but it can be anything, games, sysadmin tools, and so on, you can create a number of .list file and with the same tool you can used different .desktop files to call those lists directly. The format in .list is shown in example.list and in Help.

Dolphin_Oracle did a Youtube tutorial on how to modify the custom-toolbox as well as use it for your own toolbox of stuff:

Forgot all about the awesome videos put out by Dolphin_Oracle. Another VERY valuable support tool by the outstanding devs.

I posted a 18.8 version https://sourceforge.net/projects/mx-lin ... y_Respins/
Use the zsync-respins.sh to get the ISOs it will save you a lot of time and bandwidth if you have an older ISO.

Changelog:
- updated 174 packages
- added attr, rename, mx-boot-options packages
- removed grub-customizer (as discussed in this thread it's actually meant for running on installed system not on live environment but it can be made to work, if you want it "apt-get install grub-customizer"
- set "linssid root" I think this should fix the problem reported before

If you use the old ISO you don't really need to download the new ones, you can do an apt-get update and upgrade and then remaster.

Tried, did not work. Error.

OK, give me a moment to fix the script.

EDIT: I think you took the "download_filename.iso" too literally. The command should look like this:

Code: Select all

./zsync-respins.sh MX-Workbench-18.8_386.iso MX-Workbench-18.8_x64.iso
or:

Code: Select all

./zsync-respins.sh MX-Workbench-18.8_386.iso
The last one tries to find another MX*386.iso file in the current folder to use as an input file.

I'll have to give that a shot.
I just downloaded the 386-ISO for general use.
Thanks.

I just heard of this this week on reddit, and I just tried it to clone a drive. Twice, clonezilla began cloning the drive, but as a partition began to be worked on MX would mount it, and that broke clonezilla.

Disable autmounting. It easy in Xfce. You can also do that from console. Save that setting as persistent or remaster.

Thunar -> Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced: uncheck Enable volume management.

or CLI (you need xconf installed):

Code: Select all

xfconf-query --channel thunar-volman --property /automount-drives/enabled --set false

Ok, thank you. I'm on a dvd with it now, so I'll have to do it each time, as I don't know how to remaster as yet.
