Re: Systemd free MX19?

Pragmatism by a person who sees a little further ahead is often as deemed idealism by others. There was a time when the entire FOSS movement/community/method was deemed as being impractical and wildly idealistic. Yet it turned out that RMS and others were being extremely pragmatic by creating the GP...

Re: antiX-19-a2_x64.iso xdelta patch

I don't see a difference in the last two. I hope I did that in a meaningful way. Yes, you did. Thanks. I think I was confused about your previous post. I thought you said you got conky to stop flashing by closing the terminal window it was launched from and I was following up on that lead. But here...

Re: Systemd free MX19?

I seem to recall reading that systemv would break something about MX/antiX but I can't remember if it was the live persistent USB, the Live USB Maker, RemasterCC or just what it was? We've had trouble wresting control back from systemd so we can shut down the live system properly. When I first trie...

Re: Systemd free MX19?

My bet is that the vast majority of existing MX users do not need to boot into systemd for their needs. (MX-18) A sysvinit MX 'buster' will also work just fine for the vast majority of MX users. In addition, if we can't fix the shim then we could continue making changes to some packages to let them...

Re: antiX-19-a2_x64.iso xdelta patch

If, in the terminal I run "killall conky" then restart conky with "conky" the flashing panel artifact returns, but stops when I exit the terminal. This is interesting. Maybe it is related to file handles attached to the conky process. Try opening a flashing conky in one terminal and in another term...

Re: What to do after installing?

@snowieplays, welcome! If you do add packages or make some tweaks you could/should make an mx-snapshot backup. This will create an iso file with all of your modifications that can boot live. There are a number of cool MX respins and they were all create with this tool. Then get a nice usb-3 usb sti...

Re: duo core is alive!

A coward dies a thousand times before his death, but the valiant taste of death but once. It seems to me most strange that men should fear, seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come.

Re: No EFI entry for MX-Linux

The latest antiX-19.a2 (alpha 2) iso has two ways to get into your installed system. You can get antiX-19.a2 from SourceForge . Sorry, when I follow this link I only see full ISO of aplha 1. Which is the link with full ISO with alpha 2? I would expect a file with .iso at the end. Sorry, my mistake....

Re: Movies in full-screen exceed TV screen area

> When not playing movies, does the MX desktop fill the entire screen... Doesn't fill the screen. She noticed the problem when trying full screen online movie in Firefox (see below link). But same also happens with movie apps. But first question, why top and bottom areas are missing in full screen?...
