Re: Logitech MX Ergo wireless trackball mouse (yes, MX is the real name ;) )

@sunrat: You got me tempted to buy a trackball mouse now so I just did some searching. I think I'd be inclined to buy the Elecom M-HT1DRBK. Here's a review - https://nerdtechy.com/elecom-m-ht1drbk-review At first sight, I also loved the M-HT1DRBK. The downside is that it doesn't have Bluetooth as an...

Difference between ELECOM thumb-operated Bluetooth-capeable trackballs?

Japanese company ELECOM produces some high-quality trackballs that seem to work nicely with Linux-based operating systems (http://www2.elecom.co.jp.e.gj.hp.transer.com/business/peripheral/trackball/). One of their models has been said to be the best-selling trackball worldwide. Some of their trackba...

Re: MX-17: Proposal: Change Conky's time representation to "24 hours"

@fehlix: TL;DR: Find below a " Switch Conky Time " desktop-starter, which will switch all conky's time display between 12h and 24h format. Copy onto Desktop and/or into [HOME]/.local/share/applications, to have it also available within the menu. Any questions let me know. Check it out ;) [Desktop En...

Re: MX-17: Proposal: Change Conky's time representation to "24 hours"

@asqwerth: (...) But what do desktop environments have to do with a particular conky's representation of time? (...) Most common desktop environments so far developed didn't have very flexible time widgets. Usually you would have right-clicked on the clock, and then you could directly edit the time ...

(...) If anyone else can help, I need to solve this because I really need a python version that is 3.x or higher.
In MX-17.1, I can see a package named "fastboot 1:7.0.0+r33-1" in the repos. Can you see it?

UPDATE II: Put the stick into another machine, used the same MX-17.1 boot medium as before. This time during some sessions it worked perfectly o.k., while during some sessions (after reboot) it didn't work at all . I had originally thought that the stick might not get enough power - it was in an Ex...

MX-16_fan - if you only use MX (or any linux) on the machine, choose UTC (default).
If you dual-boot with windows, use local.
Thanks!
