Re: Install without grub

...I just fined that systemd is not friendly with dual boot systems... I have 2 systems, one with 3 distros plus Win7, the other with 5 distros plus Win10. Both boot using GRUB from siduction which uses systemd. I can only extrapolate about dual boot, but it works fine here for quad and hex boot. :...

Re: MX Desktop Respins (list)

You shouldn't laugh @jackdanielsesq. You put an LXDE iso on a download page titled "MX-KDE.iso". No wonder poor putih downloaded the wrong one.

Re: My computer upgrade

I wouldn't worry about power consumption. I have a 750W Corsair RM750i (600W one was out of stock) which has an internal link with which the power consumption can be monitored in Windows. Other bits are i5 6500 and GTX970. I checked it after playing a serious round of a recent Tomb Raider game and i...

Re: Migrating MX18 from one SSD to another

Any program with any kind of complexity is much easier to use once you know it and some are easier to know than others.
Good you finally got the job done anyway. That's the main thing! ;)

Re: MXStudio - unofficial respin

Sorry, I won't be doing a graphics studio as it's not my line of work. I know some basics and tricks for optimising audio, and know a few obscure programs and plugins etc. that add good functionality. For graphics tweaks I know nothing special. I do use KDE on my everyday main system and there are s...

Re: If your Pet had a Job, what would it be?

My cat (RIP) may have been a punkahwallah, but more likely a punkahwallah supervisor.

She was pretty good at analysing botnets though:

Re: MXStudio - unofficial respin

I just happened to be on Sourceforge and checked my download stats for MXStudio. A whole 93 in a year! Well a year is 5 days off. :happybday: I was planning to update MXS but as MX19 is threatening to rise over the horizon some month soon, I'll hold off till then. I've already tried Buster/KDE for s...

Re: Migrating MX18 from one SSD to another

So I presume you are running G4L as a live distro. I suspect if you run Clonezilla from a live dedicated recovery distro like PartedMagic or Clonezilla Live it may also work fine. They both appear to be similar programs. G4L is still on the latest PartedMagic (and I'd guess all of them) according to...

Out of curiosity, do you already have in mind a date around which MX 19 could be released?
In Debian land which I think MX inhabits, the answer to this is always "when it's ready". ;)
