Re: LibreOffice 6.0.1.1 Doesn't Offer Export to EPUB

For some reason it can't handle a Master Document - even though LibreOffice Help explicitly recommends that. Sigh. The trick is: Within LO Masterdoc, you add all you subdocuments and arrange to your liking. Use the Masterdoc navigator to rearange. When you are ready with you masterdoc. you do conve...

Re: Help with Grub Customizer not Saving Configurations Correctly

No, I do not use grub-customizer (except one time for a test) and I modify this file by hand now, like your custom.cfg. Maybe I can simply copy/move /etc/grub.d/proxifiedScripts/custom /boot/grub/custom.cfg to /boot/grub/custom.cfg for the exactly same effect. cp /etc/grub.d/proxifiedScripts/custom...

Re: Help with Grub Customizer not Saving Configurations Correctly

But whether I use my configfile entry or your multiboot one, the grub menu that appears for Neon is the old one, and the new grub theme I applied just didn't register. I also have a chainloader menu entry for Neon, still no change in grub theme. Maybe they did something to it.... This echo GRUB_THE...

Re: Help with Grub Customizer not Saving Configurations Correctly

#/etc/grub.d/proxifiedScripts/custom ... Your approach is based on functionality provided by grub-customizer. Which might be fine as long as you have a working grub-customizer. :eek: In addtion setting root through a "fixed" device-name like set root=(hd0,10), might break as soon as you plugin anot...

Re: Help with Grub Customizer not Saving Configurations Correctly

I really have no idea of the differences between the multiboot and configfile methods, but both work fine. multioot in BIOS / chainloader in UEFI: this is equivalent/identical to load/boot the grub-bootloader as if you would boot from MBR/PBR or ESP(UEFI) configfile /sourcing ... grub.cfg : This lo...

Re: Help with Grub Customizer not Saving Configurations Correctly

I installed AntiX 17.2 on a new partition [sda7] and bootloader on sda7. Booted to MX sda3 (where Grub is installed) - sudo update-grub. Back to sda7 with AntiX 17.2 - sudo chmod -x /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober. Boot Menu is much better, but cannot get sda7 and Win8 up past all the various entries/opti...

Re: Vivaldi & H.264/MP4 (MP3 too I think) & libffmpeg.so

I just upgraded Vivaldi & during the process I watched it replace the /opt/vivaldi/lib/libffmpeg.so file that was 3,214,888 bytes in size with its default file that is ~50% of the size. So I copied back in the large file from my ~/.local/lib/vivaldi directory & then ran the following command on it ...

Re: No GRUB on dual boot install

Thanks. I tried chainloading but couldn't get it right, so will give this a try. MX flies on this laptop! To make it even "smarter" if you install both grub for i386 and efi, within MX 17, e.g. by using boot-repair from started LiveUSB (-> reinstall grub) , you could even boot in either UEFI mode o...

Re: No GRUB on dual boot install

OK, much later I have finally managed to solve this by using grub2win and am posting from my XPS 13 with an installed MX Linux for the first time. Very exciting. If you want to try chainloading from Grub2Win's grub-menu into your installed MX 17, you can use this grub-menu entry add with Grub2Win a...

Does it change something if I boot the MX live USB in UEFI or in hybrid UEFI mode?
Yes, hybrid UEFI mode is buggy :eek: .
Better choose pure UEFI, to make sure NVRAM entries are written.
