Hi,

found an issue on my sytem. I've tested MX-Snapshot on this and in the remastered version there's no installer Icon on the desktop. I've found the solution. It's easy, but I didn't think of that. Must do a copy of /etc/skel/Desktop/Installer.desktop to /usr/local/share/live-files/files/etc/skel/Desktop.

MX has a lot of fine details, it's triggy to rebuild all exactly on a personal compilation. But I do my very best.
for those with an eye for the finer details...

updated to MX18-LMDE-Respin.

new apps mx18-artwork and grub-themes-mx included. metro-station wallpaper from antiX included for desktop and login. Slightly updated configurations to my last version. No software changes.

Note: with deb-multimedia, so it's compatible to LMDE and their packages.

Build on antiX-17.3-core, Build date 2019-01-04, 1,5 GB

Happy new year. :)

found a few issues and I have been fixed.

On new release the volumeicon and the keyboard-switcher didn't start at boot-time. Fixed.

Now LibreOffice 6.4 from Debian backports included for offline-install.

New ISO online. :)

Very interesting. Thank you for the effort.

I will download tomorrow when I get back to a faster connection. In the meantime ...

>> on antiX-17.3-core

So your creation is:

--Based on AntiX, with anti's approach to the systemd questions etc. under the hood?
--minus the window managers, and plus XFCE instead (like MX)?
--pulling in additional repos and thus offering a bit more software choice?
--fully upgradeable, as when the AntiX core moves from 17 to 18?

Is all that correct?

If so, you just saved me a lot of work that I haven't had time to do myself!

It's a MX-System with systemd-shim. MX is based on antiX. Here you find different software, optional installs (Gimp 2.10, LibreOffice 6.1.4) and a Linux Mint-feeling. So deb-multimedia must be enabled, necessary for the LMDE packages. Some meta-packages by LM depends on this, mint-meta-codecs for example. Another fine thing is the pre-installed avidemux app. MX-Tools are pre-installed too, but not all of them.

It's full upgradable but some MX-specific things are not there. I use another uca.xml and a different standard layout. MX-packages which updates layout-configurations are not installed here. So I've done many things by myself.

So there is another burning application. xcdroast 1.19 (Nov. 2018) by T. Niederreiter.
Note: When you prefer the standard xfburn you need to install the gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad package too, this is not pre-installed.

I'm a german guy. So in my systems german language packs are additionaly installed. Have fun with it. :happy:

The default integration with Virtual Box was removed, though.

yep, no virtualbox-guest-modules, no dkms and no gstreamer-plugins. I'm using this only on real hardware.

antiX-Kernel 4.9.146. System runs fine on older machines. But you can add what you want. MX-Kernels, mint-meta-codecs for all gstreamer-plugins, the virtualbox-guest-modules and make a snapshot by yourself. :happy:

Thank you dphn, well done. Feels & looks as original LMDE. One of my friends wants Cinnamon. This Linux Mint theme in Xfce, and Cinnamon like setup may save my time. I am still testing.

Screenshot (I moved the panel locations and new wallpaper).

EDIT
Its not clear which repo is running the system. Example, synaptic is showing Cinnamon 4.0 is available. MX test repo (4.0) is not active and Debian buster and sid are still 3.8.x.
