Also: reduce the default swappiness from 60 to 10, which all modern machines should be happier with. Maybe that's a feature we can add to MX-Tweak in the future.
It would be great to be able to select from a range of sensible values; with an SSD I set mine to 1.

Re: free webtool: remove backgrounds from photos automatically

Re: MX-18 RC1 Feedback

Very trivial - README file in .conky mentions MX-17. Suggest change to MX-Linux to cover all bases.

@GuiGuy,
Probably the November snapshot is the most uptodate and it has been stable for me.

Re: Problems with big December package update

Just for information, two users in our Facebook group have problems after the big update, These seem related to the inability to run any MX tools, or to start MX Tools itself. One has already re-installed; I've asked the other user to report here. Chris Nvidia driver autoremove issue almost 100 per...

Thanks for the information; I haven't tried that. Those machines are currently tied up with MX-18 testing, but I've bookmarked this to try when that is finished. If successful, it should probably go in the Wiki. You have seen my posts about that bug already, as I have posted a couple of times here ...

Re: Fresh install on SSD takes 3 minutes to boot into MX

Machines with similar specifications to yours do slow boot with any modern kernel in various distributions. I have two that do so, and our Facebook group has reports of others with the same problem.
