Re: Settings Screen Icons - a little help

Can someone tell me where the icons for this screen might be located? TIA. Screenshot_2019-04-18_19-42-49.png What icon theme is that? (Or is that what you're asking?) The theme is Sardi-Flat. I know where the standard icons are all located. What I'm trying to figure out is the names of the missing...

Re: MX Updater process

Yeah that is what I have been doing. I just wanted it to work like it was designed to work but if that is not worth figuring out then doing that will work. Thanks MX Updater checks for updates at a sort-of-random time, usually but not always within the first 1/2 hour of being started. I generally j...

VPNs and MX

Quick question for the community:

What, if any, VPN are you using? And do you have to boot systemd to use their proprietary utility if they have one?

Re: Can't Change Timezone

That clock plugin did update some time ago to add transparency. So check it's settings (I don't remember exactly what they look like)

Re: Why do most distros use grub(?).

Curiosity getting the better of me today. :cool: Why do most distros use grub ? OK, lilo may not be the friendliest, but it used to work well, when I first started using Linux, back in the 90s. Then there is/was syslinux/isolinux/ extlinux , seemed really easy to configure. we (antiX & MX) uses sys...

Re: [UNSOLVED] native nordvpn app on MX linux

However, usually there is just some service that needs started up. you can usually do this manually if you know the name of the executable for the service. Could you recommend me how to investigate this problem? Where are typically stored services or executable for systemd? usually in /lib/systemd/...

Re: [UNSOLVED] native nordvpn app on MX linux

it doesn't shock me. sysVinit scripts are harder to write than systemd service unit files.

However, usually there is just some service that needs started up. you can usually do this manually if you know the name of the executable for the service.

FWIW, on Gentoo I can build policy-kit (polkit) with or without systemd support. It appears to be a configuration option when the package is built.

Re: Discuss init here if you wish

OpenRC offers true process supervision, which sysvinit lacks. I've just got my Alpine Linux system booting with openrc-init: alpine:~$ cat /proc/1/comm openrc-init alpine:~$ All of Alpine's init scripts use an openrc-run shebang so it works well. My Devuan beowulf system works just fine with sysvin...
