Re: Moving Thunderbird Profile from one computer to another

1. Since Thunderbird opened your emails correctly, you don't need to follow skidoo's instructions re file permissions.

2. Which version of Thunderbird do you have? I'm currently on 52.9.1 and Lightning runs fine. I've used it through various versions over the last 10 years and not had a problem.

Re: Moving Thunderbird Profile from one computer to another

It's in the hidden folder /.thunderbird which you'll find in your home folder. Ctrl-H in Thunar.

Re: What init system do you use on MX, the default (sysVinit) or systemd?

I voted sysVinit - I have booted sytemd a few times to see what difference it made. I found nothing significant.

Darn, that would have made a good Youtube video.
We could have Mr and Mrs. Dolphin make one and have a disclaimer, "Actors are playing the parts". ;)
But how do you persuade Windows to update on cue, instead of when MS chooses?

Re: How access Word docs on dual boot machine?

If you've set up shares to data folders, then virtually no risk. Mounting a system partition read/write in another system invites errors. I have done it in the past but for one-off file operations. I wouldn't have the partition mounted on a regular basis.

Re: How access Word docs on dual boot machine?

I have all my data files on two data partitions, one NTFS, the other ext4. I can access these from any of my OSs.

Re: How access Word docs on dual boot machine?

If this is more than a one-off requirement, it doesn't make sense to access your C: drive for the files. (Accessing a system disc from another system is a recipe for disastrous mistakes.) So if your Word files are on the C: drive you would be advised to move them to another Win7 partition (a data pa...

I remember starting it with a statement something like: "I've always wanted to do an Xfce version but don't think I have the chops." But I can't find that any more.
I think that was in 2013 and topics with no posts after 2013 seem to have disappeared. We need an archivist!!
