Re: Conky Manager

Anyone having a problem getting the correct weather from OpenWeathermap.org? Mine is consistently out anywhere from 5 to 10 degrees. I know male also says openweathermap is not that accurate for him. But for me, it depends. There have been times when it's raining outside and openweather's current f...

Re: MX updated

That will include the Debian 9.6 point release updates. Make sure to view Dolphin's video on the grub-pc update before proceeding! Choose to keep your current config if asked, and selection of the checkbox of the appropriate boot device from within the terminal popup is done with the space bar, not ...

Re: MX is now #3 on DistroWatch over 7 days

You are maybe right to be fair, I actually wanted to say, (how would you call it?) "subpoint releases like 17.1.xx": -if you look at MJ main DW page https://distrowatch.com/manjaro you'll see that the version listed there before 18.0 is actually 17.1.12 (not 17.1.0): Feature stable 18.0 17.1.12 Rel...

Re: MX is now #3 on DistroWatch over 7 days

You cannot really compare MX vs. MJ, is more psychology, no real meaning or fault of statistics... guess the reason for high MJ ratings is rather simpler than who is better: ---they are rolling, so they get more releases, To be fair though, the DW page for manjaro shows that there was a 10 month in...

Re: Suggestions about USB live Maker

[...] whenever i use linux commands to make bootable usb using gparted to format the usb drive makes it some time difficult The command line version of live-usb-maker already has an option to "Clear the partition table on a usb device" .

Re: Suggestions about USB live Maker

Doesn't MX's live usb maker GUI have a "dd" mode?

That is what works with other distros' iso.

It would be the same as using the dd command in root terminal.

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

Hello, I have a question. MX 18 recognizes the wifi of my laptop, whereas MX 17.1 can't. If I install MX 18 on the hard drive, will I have to reinstall the stable release? Or will it be 'promoted' thorough updates? Thanks I'm not understanding the question, sorry. In general: MX-18 will be the stab...

Re: New Review: Five Reasons to use MX Linux

He's unfortunately the person who posts comments on many YouTube MX reviews about how great MX is and in the same breath stating how horrible Manjaro is, sometimes in pretty rude language.

Re: How can I get this theme working properly in MX 17 (possibly the upcoming MX 18 too)

I switched to Linux on MX 16 just a month before MX 17 went available. I browsed xfce-look.org and found a theme called AfterDark that looked extraordiarly good on my aging Acer netbook. However I didn't switch to MX 17 on that thing because that same theme doesn't look quite the same on there like...
