VirtualBox extensions. [Solved]

Perhaps I am missing something but the virtual box extensions seem to be missing from the test rep and Popular applications. I needed to install it to recognize my devices.connected to my USB ports.

EDIT: Never mind. I see it is available in Synaptic.

Re: Can I use MX Linux on live usb and keep process for future logins?

Administrator comment.

There is no prohibition trying to help another user with a problem. But adding to a topic with another issue is not proper. It just causes confusion in the topic.

Re: How to update to Plasma 5.22?

You could also try Fedora KDE. I have given it a spin and it is quite nice. However It has crashed several times. The reliability of MX KDE, the MX Tools and other MX touches will always take me back to it as my daily system.

OK. I misunderstood.

Re: Plasmoids can't be removed!

Please post your Quick System info found in MX Tools. As that Remove function is certainly there in MX KDE.

@asqwerth
I read his post as wanting to tidy up the panel. For desktop it is different as you indicated.

Re: Can MX Boot Repair be used to fix other distros? [Solved]

I just used grub-install to recover grub being overwritten by Kubuntu. It overwrites MX's grub every time I boot to it. (which is not often). PS Adrian Thanks for reminding me of that command. I have been searching for it for a few days. Surprisingly, or not, it was not listed in any of the grub man...
