Re: xfce 4.14 released

https://www.xfce.org/about/news/?post=1565568000 As always it's also time to say goodbye to some older unmaintained or deprecated projects. (Luckily our projects only go to the attic aka the archive on git.xfce.org when they die.) With a salty teardrop of sadness we bid farewell to: ... thunar-acti...

Re: How to read MX Help w/o internet?

AFAIK, each MX utility calls mx-viewer to display its helpdoc. If the deb file for each of the utilities would install a local copy of its helpdoc, mx-viewer could be modified to try//catch, try pinging mxlinux.org & if currently unavailable, load instead the file:///usr/share/doc/ local copy. The i...

Re: Thunar open as root

Is there a way to change this so it is the same as MX? The separate root PW is my preference . $ man sudoers The sudoers security policy requires that most users authenticate themselves before they can use sudo. A password is not required if the invoking user is root, if the target user is the same...

Re: antiX-17.4.1 now out

right, that's a great question... and has been previously discussed (repeatedly, and in great depth)
and doesn't fit here in the "antiX-17.4.1 now out" thread

Re: How-to convert antiX to an XFCE4 based Distro (tutorial)

Is there a simple way in Antix to only change the Menu to something else that includes a "search box" ? (and leave the rest the same) I meant something like MX's without the need to change the whole DE. sudo apt install kupfer It is a finder/launcher that provides a search as-you-type filtering. He...

Re: Defining the jump from noob to Linux User

when I visit github. I have no idea about the site, or the terminology it uses. I've been meaning to sit down, and learn how to use the site. Just haven't done it yet. It was my last visit there which prompted my question. I think that if I learned, and understood how to use github I would be much ...

Re: Mozilla Hardening And Enhancement Guide

. "any way one could get rid of that InstallDateTime string?" As a practical matter, no. "installDateTime" was intended as a generic term. Timestamps are stored into (sqlite databases and) multiple prefkeys, the most suspicious of which (IMO) is "browser.laterrun.bookkeeping.profileCreationTime". Wh...

Re: Mozilla Hardening And Enhancement Guide

app.update.lastUpdateTime.experiments-update-timer ...set to 0 [default is 1550012645] The value represents an event timestamp. Zero just serves to spoof "ain't never been updated yet". Zero or otherwise, the value conceivably could serve as a fingerprinting trait... but that would provide pointles...
