Re: Dedoimedo back to MX Tools

I'm just glad the nvidia install worked. He's running the 340 legacy driver that we had a little trouble with earlier in the year.

Re: VLC High CPU Usage

if you want to try an alternate video player, I find mpv pretty awesome, and I believe smplayer will provide a graphical front end to it.

Re: Step by step for personal MX installation ISO ???

ok, to get new setting defaults to care over to a live iso, you either need to use a "personal" (which will maintain the accounts as well) or do some additional work to the file system. if you are doing a live iso with the "reset accounts" option, then your user configs need sync'd to the /etc/skel/...

Re: VLC High CPU Usage

Go into the vlc settings and try different acceleration options. I believe the default is auto. you can try the others and see if anything helps.

Re: Step by step for personal MX installation ISO ???

I dunno, I've made plenty of live images during the past few years and I've found that it doesn't really matter which FAT the stick has to begin with ... since the ISO creation software converts the stick to whatever's needed automatically. I normally start out with a FAT32 stick by default, but fo...

Re: Snapshot mx17

yeah, we are going to have to take a look at snapshot's internals. some of the code is hardcoded english on the folders to exclude. You have to be consequent and stick with xdg-user-dirs. I have another one: Creating a snapshop in EN without excluding anything. Booting into other locale will keep y...

Re: Snapshot mx17

xdg-user-dirs Not sure whether I clicked all to exclude or only some folders! The issue is still there! Just tested. Tested with DE-locale from with a life-MX17.1_may iso. Tested both with EN and with DE. Only DE shows the dont-like-exlude BUG! Et nous? Τι γίνεται με εμάς; ¿Y nosotros? :frown: yeah...

Re: Snapshot mx17

interesting thought there fehlix. Well, you guys mostly develop in english. Qui pense à nous? You sometimes simply have forgotten 'us', i.e. to test in others locales :p It has caught us before. I'm surprised this one hasn't come up...or maybe it has and we just never noticed. ;) **dev note** xdg-u...

Re: Snapshot mx17

Hi Dolphin, Thanks for your quick answer! I don’t have Steam installed either virtualbox, so I will try with the “general” snapshot and see what happens and let you know. I understand that with that option my desktop configuration will be lost (panel, theme, etc...) Still since I don’t have any lar...
