Re: MX Linux gains distrowatch "Major" Linux distribution status

Major Distributions: Debian, Red Hat/Fedora, Suse, Gentoo, Arch, Slackware.
Nearly all the other distros lead back to - and rely on - one of those. We're good, but we're not Debian.

But buster's right, don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

Re: Alert: Update Libreoffice to 6.0.7 / 6.1.3

Hmmm, we use the stretch-backports packages for libreoffice. They seem to have skipped 6.1.4 and now have 6.1.5~rc1-2 in backports. Those in an environment where they have to be worried about this attack vector (which is not most home users) should upgrade libreoffice from backports with MXPI. If we...

Re: Anyone here using MX Linux as a server?

I don't use MX as a public server, but in-home it serves as a music server, print server, and file server (over samba), usually administered using ssh for convenience.

Re: Wine, significant updates

But don't install Wine using the Ubuntu directions in that link. Wine 4.0 is available in the MX Test repo under the wine-staging label. Install wine-staging compat to get everything installed for both 32bit & 64bit Wine.

Re: How did Antix and Mempis get together?

antiX was originally a "spin-off" of MEPIS, leveraging and extending its LiveCD system although it moved to a straight debian base fairly early on. All of the LiveUSB persistence and remastering applications were developed by antiX.

Re: Davinci Resolve

First try the steps the official source tells you to try. If you have tried starting resolve from the command line and/or the next step of running ldd on the program and don't understand the messages then copy & paste them here for decoding. When Resolve doesn't start at all or exits immediately Run...

Re: MX-17.1 can't print to parallel-port-connected "hp DeskJet 350c" inkjet printer

Since you seem to have /dev/lp0, go to CUPS (open Firefox and go to http://localhost:631). Click on Administration then enter root and your root password in the authentication boxes. Click on Add Printer At the top of the Local Printers section should be LPT #1 . Select that. The next screen is just...

Re: APT mess when selecting Anycast Worldwide repo

mirrors.evowise.com does have an invalid Release file. I wouldn't use that mirror until they update again. That one is in Romania. The mirrors.pidginhost.com repo in Romania doesn't have the problem.

Re: Update problem

Ooops! Somehow the firefox l10n debs didn't get uploaded.
It should be fixed now on the *.mxrepo.com servers, other mirrors will take a bit longer.
