Re: Error in .conky/MX-antiX in Aug MX 17.1

Thanks for the report, this is a good place. Also in "Bugs and Non Packager requests": https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewforum.php?f=97 either way we get this.
I think this should have been true for older versions, I don't think we changed anything in /etc/skel in the last releases.

Re: LXQt and KDE respins - personal projects

Had a quick test of MX-KDE live on thumb drive. Works fine but seems very vanilla Plasma and not MX-ish enough. 1. the MX default papirus icon set isn't installed at all. It's in the LXQT spin. 2. for some strange reason, even though the xapian-apt-whatever package is installed, Synaptic does not h...

Re: LXQt and KDE respins - personal projects

Not sure why you needed two steps to add items to quick launcher, I can drag items directly to it.

Re: What is the best way to back up MX?

There are so many alternatives it's confusing. I tried the snapshot and made a bootable thumb drive from it. I couldn't boot today so I figured I'd load the thumb drive and try boot repiair. But the darn thing asked for my password and although I've only ever used one, wouldn't accept it. I definit...

Re: Monthly snapshot announcement

Seems like a wrong repo that came from an antiX repo localization package, thanks for the report, we'll fix it. It's not a problem with the snapshot, it's a problem with the package. Actually it's good we do these snapshots because we can catch this kind of issues. On the second issue, why is mx-rep...

Re: Read access to linuxfs, rootfs and initrd.gz from Windows

That's pretty cool, didn't know it's possible, I like 7zip a lot.

Re: MX-Workbench Community Respin

OK, give me a moment to fix the script. EDIT: I think you took the "download_filename.iso" too literally. The command should look like this: ./zsync-respins.sh MX-Workbench-18.8_386.iso MX-Workbench-18.8_x64.iso or: ./zsync-respins.sh MX-Workbench-18.8_386.iso The last one tries to find another MX*3...

Re: MX-Workbench Community Respin

I posted a 18.8 version https://sourceforge.net/projects/mx-linux/files/Snapshots/Community_Respins/ Use the zsync-respins.sh to get the ISOs it will save you a lot of time and bandwidth if you have an older ISO. Changelog: - updated 174 packages - added attr, rename, mx-boot-options packages - remo...

Re: Can't Log In After Update

One last question though that I thought of while reinstalling as an install prompt made me think of this. I am the only user of my desktop so I set both the user and root password as the same. Could this have any effect on my issue of not being able to log in ? No, I don't think it has any bearing ...
