Re: Linux virus named "Evil GNOME!"

Apparently, you need to use the Gnome DE and then go out of your way to download the virus and install it. The comments were pretty funny.

Re: Installing MX on my HP Laptop

I think the nightmarish experience of the OP is totally legitimate. I had a very similar experience with an HP laptop. At the end, antiX was the only distro that worked. Here is the thread about my own issues: https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php?f=104&t=47678&p=477612#p477612 If the OP is intere...

Re: No Wireless HP 245 G6 Laptop

I had exactly the same problem (and others) with my new HP laptop 15-bw022la. Checking the thread about the issue may also help you: https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php?f=104&t=47678 Also, if you get a weak signal after enabling your wireless connection, try this: sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl872...

Re: MX live usb maker error

Just to make sure, is the .iso file that you are using small enough to fit the 8 GB usb pendrive? The only error I've gotten while using that tool has happened because the image file was too large for the usb device.

Re: Portátil Gaming

Lo que recomienda Gerson es cierto. Hay que recordar que por lo general, los juegos actuales están desarrollados para Windows. En Linux se deberán ejecutar con herramientas como Wine, con resultados variados. Por otra parte, el cliente de Steam sí funciona bien en MX pero el rendimiento de cada jueg...

Re: No sound after installing mx18 on HP laptop

Did you try opening a terminal and entering "alsamixer" and then unchecking the automute channel? That has always helped me.

Re: Cannot install MX-18 (HP Laptop 15-bw022la)

antiX, with kernel 4.20 works perfectly after two tweaks: 1- Stevo's suggestion to enable wireless 2- BitJam's suggested tutorial to change the antenna of Wicd. Apparently, the problem is kernel 4.19. But that wouldn't answer why Manjaro's kernel 4.20 gave me the same black screen that I got on anti...

Re: Cannot install MX-18 (HP Laptop 15-bw022la)

@BitJam , @Stevo,

You are the greatest! The wifi method worked! Now I have wireless access. Thanks a lot!

Now I'll try upgrading the kernel to see if that takes care of the freezing.

Thanks a lot!! I'll report later.
