Re: MX-18 RC1 Feedback

Pierre is asking for an upgrade path without a download. There is no official upgrade path from beta to RC. Best to download. I'm not quite understanding.

But this situation of the Conky never happened to me neither live nor when installing MX 17; 17.1 and beta MX 18. only with MX 17 beta.

Re: MX17 -> MX18, apps_installed.txt

Re: MX-18 RC1 Feedback

@pierre just the normal upgrade path install. Install and save /home. Be a bit cautious or things could go 'south' on you. I managed without problem.... nothing much destroyed besides having to reinstall my software changes. Now I'm testing to see how Timeshift might work on the transition from RC1...

Re: vlc error

Point taken. I prefer to test either with a LiveUSB or most desirable a HDD/SSD install. My view, eliminating the variables of Vbox settings and application settings that may be required for virtual installs is a good approach. That is not to say that resolving these issues is not desirable for thos...
