Re: antiX-19-b1-full64 -feedback

The beta1 is fast running from USB and installing. In the installer, I think the grub options, at least on my machine/USB, come up too soon, while it is installing, causing the user (me) to think it was going to install to mbr. This would be over my day-to -ay MX 18.3 install. So I aborted and resta...

Re: antiX-19-b1-full 64 no sound

Nothing is muted, al sliders have numbers under them. So, next to check the channels. I messed around with that asound command using that Arch link for almost an hour last night. I clearly was too tired, or my brain is getting soft, but I was never able to get any sound out, trying many channels, th...

Re: XFCE and DE innovation

KBD,

I agree. I think the author's point was that innovation on the desk top is not necessarily good and can backfire.

Hence the appreciation for the stability of XFCE, and how that matches the MX design philosophy.
And as he points out the key is "only giving users what they want"

Re: antiX-19-b1-full (64 and 32 bit) available

Thanks antiX-Dave and d_o I will check those things tonight. The arch documentation (as usual) looks very thorough, much to read. I was not familiar with the "channels". I guess for the beta, the question is why would a wrong channel be selected, when in MX 18 and antiX 18, it worked out of the box ...

Re: antiX-19-b1-full (64 and 32 bit) available

Anti,

Where would I see this "M"?

I did not see any M, but I wasn't looking for it.
Would arrowing up the sliders reverse any mute? :lipsrsealed:

XFCE and DE innovation

Nice short piece on DE innovation over at FOSS Force. XFCE comes outlooking pretty good for the new version. https://fossforce.com/2019/07/how-user-revolts-shaped-the-linux-desktop/ The Fallout The short term result of these user revolts was increased choice. Xfce, for years the third most popular D...

Re: antiX-19-b1-full (64 and 32 bit) available

Yes, I went into the alsamixer, and turned all the sliders up. I think I arrowed over to get them all including, master, center, LFE, etc.
I will double check tonight.

The sound is not quiet, there is no sound.

Re: antiX-19-b1-full 64 -no sound

d_o and mxer, I am back booted to antiX 19b1. In the /etc directory, even when showing hidden files, there is no asoundrc. But there is the asound.conf. I edited this as root changing this part: # ***** Defaults ******************************************************* # Audio card/chip and device to ...

Re: antiX-19-b1-full 64 -still no sound

OK, some progress. Thanks D_O. I looked in /etc, and found only a file with a different name, similar. So I edited it as root, uncommenting the defaults (which had sound card 0, the nvidia) and changing the three lines with card 0 to card 1. Saved and rebooted. Now the mixer comes up correctly as th...

Re: antiX-19-b1-full (64 and 32 bit) available

OK, I show all the hidden files in my home directory. I see a .alsaequal.bin and lots of other .hidden files, but there is no .asoundrc. Could this be a problem? The problem? I didn't have sound on the live session either, but I thought, what the heck, install and try to fix it. What about kernel ve...
