There is a program called Stacer which has a nice GUI that you might want to take a look at. A google image search will return lots of examples > https://github.com/oguzhaninan/Stacer

Re: Ad blocking extension

I am confused. If it is open source what is the issue of adapting the code to put a gui wrap around it? Well, technically, none I suppose rich. Under the licence, they are entitled to create what they have made. Installing and running it was an interesting experiment for me, but I'll be sticking wi...

Re: Ad blocking extension

I stumbled upon this a couple of weeks ago > Incognito Adblocker > Firefox extension. I downloaded and ran it, and my first thoughts were that this was uBlock Origin with a different gui. I went to the website half expecting it to be a gorhill project that I'd missed the news about, but it was not....

Re: New SSD required

If you are dual booting with windows and intend to install the Samsung "magician software" under that system, (for optimisation of the SSD), I'd recommend having a good in-depth read of the EULA.

Re: Email programs with MX Linux 17.1 ..
