Can you please guide me to upgrading from MXLinux 18.
The upgrade works as long as you re-install packages which are removed during the process, before logout/reboot. I have the list but most likely outdated since January. I recommend to want for MX 19.

Re: I want to Translate English to Bengali!

So, if on the first screenshot is Phonetic Bengali... Phonetic Bengali is not a different script but using English letters. Same how I introduced myself in my previous post: "Namaskar, amar nam Markku (Salute, my name is Markku). With Bengali scripture it would have been something like this (not su...

Re: Debian 10 new look and feel

Yet I'm glad they went to Calamares for live images for those unused to the old installer. Most users if then "old or new timer" installing makes them often "unused". Its not something one does every week and become used with it. Debian old installer is not self-explanatory. I liked when Calamares ...

Re: I want to Translate English to Bengali!

You are right! A lot of people speak this language! Actually It was one of the main languages in South Asia. Namaskar, amar nam Markku. Bangla has a Sanskrit root so there are similarities in South East Asia such are Malaysia and Indonesia. I was in South EA (1983-1997), also visited often Calcutta...

Please DON'T update if +1900 packages

If you see there is an update of +1900 packages, please DON'T upgrade. Its upgrades to buster which breaks your whole system. It removes systemd-shim, lightdm, netwwork-manager, and other important packages. If you do, don't logout before reinstalling the removed packages. Here are few resent issues...

Re: Please help !!! Unable to access GUI after update

Is this becoming an issue where machines get upgraded to buster without notice. This upgrade breaks the system (systemd-shim, lightdm, netwwork-manager, and other important packages are removed). Here is another asking for help:
