Re: removal virtualbox 32 bit

Only the guest additions are presinstalled, which are still required.for.the 32 bit.guest system to work with all the vb features like folder sharing and matching the display resolution to the vb window size.

It can be safely removed at anytime.

Re: Half the system stopped working after updates

Note that having the mx test repo enabled in antix is almost certain to cause major system problems, as our repo is not systemd free and antix expects a systemd-free environment (through its no systemd repo).

Re: MX17 kernels patched for Spectre &/or Meltdown?

The defuAlt mx 17.1 kernel (4.15) is patched. I think this is noted in the release announcement and it might be noted in mx-packagerinstaller->popular apps ->kernels entries.

Same here only compiz and IceWM in MX Package Manager. The others that were in there are missing.

Re: Request for Waterfox [SOLVED]

Thanks for adding Waterfox to the repos ----- However I find it weird you need to upgrade MX Installer in order to see the latest apps added to it.

Re: MX-Cleanup won't run twice

I think the /tmp cleanup is too aggressive. it deletes anything in /tmp, including files that are in use (pulseaudio, mx-usb-umounter lockfile and the gksu cache). also, the /tmp cleanup *should* be unnecessary as /tmp is supposed to be cleared at shutdown.

Re: xfw4m-Last update.Heavy BUG or NOT?Someone can confirm?

With regards to the taskbar button , Unless qpdfview has an option in its preferences it set internally by the code and cannot be changed by the user Could one locate the icon and do a switch, substituting/editing it and retaining the file name? I suppose. If any other app uses the icon, it will be...
