Re: Iridium browser install issue

You can stop the keyring nonsense by editing the launcher command to read “%U --password-store=basic” at the end (no quote marks).

Re: That's a serious problem

Have had a similar problem with a laptop keyboard, check that the num-lock is not switched on, that changes the RH side of the keyboard to a number pad (qwerty456*’enter’ on my Sony vaio).

Re: Very specific conky question...

Have now checked that conky and htop match on both my desktop & laptop so maybe you could swap out your .conkyrc with the one below just to see if its the same for you. conky.config = { alignment = 'top_right', maximum_width = 260, border_width = 0, font = 'Terminus:size=10', gap_x = 20, gap_y = 10,...

Re: MX Beowulf (Devuan) Respin

Currently using Devuan so this is definitely of interest.

Re: Systemd free MX19?

For a couple of months now I have run ( systemd free) Devuan on my desktop that has been tweaked and twisted to be as close to the look and feel of MX as I could get it.
