Re: Choosing a Linux Distro

Dolphin is available in the repos. You would need to install other packages to get full functionality. I installed KDE from the MX Package Installer and you get a functional dolphin. It can be themed if you also install systemsettings which is the KDE System Setting app. I then run it in xfce. Why i...

Re: [BUG] Add packages for proper VPN support

Are you trying to use the free services that the video shows or a paid service? The configurations are different. I am unfamiliar with the video and the free VPN and use the paid Private Internet Access. I am not sure but doubt that your router is blocking. EDIT: Deleted OpenVPN which is and added P...

Re: [BUG] Add packages for proper VPN support

Not sure about that. I have openVPN running with Network Manager. The setup was without any trouble or other additions. I have tried and failed to do this :frown: : can't think what to put into the "Gateway" box. Please give me a clue :confused: You put in a country gateway. For example s...

Re: Predicted RAM Requirements for the future

I have 16 Gb and a 6 Gb swap partition that rarely gets used. Typical RAM usage is 2 to 3 Gb but rarely do I have more than three apps open. Two Gb is a bit lean with the Ram you have so yes set up a larger swap partition. Whether 12 Gb or less is up to you based on what your typical ram usage is. A...

Re: [BUG] Add packages for proper VPN support

I was clarifying that standard OpenVPN is trouble free. Never tried the other two. I am sure the devs will take a look at this.

Re: Choosing a Linux Distro

Thank you Jerry3904. There are so many Linux distros out there and a lot of them are good, so that makes it difficult for me to choose one. I wish I would have known about VirtualBox earlier. It definitely makes things easier and safer to try out different operating systems. And LiveUSB's which mos...

Re: New Theme, tailored for MX-17

MX-distro seems to have the more experienced linux-users as its base. The choice of app's are a give-away at that point. And I guess giving it a distinct look and feel is not of its first priorities. As I said, I am a themer. So this pops the question: Why does MX not have its own theme?... I will ...
