Re: is there a way to delete wthout having to confirm with another click?

" Shift Delete "

Simplest imho. I use it in all Linux Distros and Win. (Though this asks for confirmation only once, it bypasses the trash)

( Or right-click => "Delete" in Thunar is equal to "Shift Delete" -more than the delete key alone-..)

Re: No Internet Connection

Yes, it's obvious: 8.8.8.8 ping statistics --- 3 packets transmitted, 3 received, 0% packet loss So, if you like , start the pc with MX live-session (usb or dvd). And see if you can connect to internet there. If yes ( although there must be some simpler ways to repair it ) : First copy-paste your ho...

Re: Wi-fi works on 4.19, but not on 4.14 or 4.9, need 4.9

What about doing it manually after installing 4.9 ? https://github.com/antoineco/broadcom-wl.git The following kernel modules are incompatible with this driver and should not be loaded: ssb bcma b43 brcmsmac Make sure to unload (rmmod command) and blacklist those modules in order to prevent them fro...

Re: USB problem

You're welcome. In fact, you don't need to change to ntfs.. I mean, you can use of course that way for storing data etc.., but the most suitable is fat32 (long story)... (Also , say, when you have media files etc. and want to play on some devices and attach the usb, they may not recognize ntfs ... )...

Although the driver is already installed: You can try this first: sudo modprobe -r ath9k sudo modprobe ath9k nohwcrypt=1 sudo echo "options ath9k nohwcrypt=1" >> /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf Reboot You can also try sudo modprobe -r ath9k sudo modp...

Re: Default conky on MX-19 Beta 1

Meanwhile, not to be misunderstood, saying "I always change", I just mean the last two point releases.. conkies of MX 16 and 17 were nice to me :)

And this candidate could be still nice even without the symbols (imho.. would look clearer..) .. Just as an alternative..
