Re: thoughts and questions re: 18 and the new 19...

Thanks JayM, that is the ticket ! A pretty hard option to find.

Un-checking that box removes the mouse wheel accidental changing of the workspaces.

That can be annoying, so maybe that should be off by default, and let users turn it on if they use that mouse feature.

Re: thoughts and questions re: 18 and the new 19...

I think srq2565 is correct, I think your scroll wheel is toggling between the two virtual desktops. I also am not sure how to take that function away from the mouse, it can be frustrating. BUT, I think most people use only one desktop. If you want to turn off one of the virtual desktops, and go to o...

Re: how to add or enable password after wake from suspend?

Is that setting in the Power management.
I think there is a screen for suspend, and a box to tick, with something like lock screen on suspend.

I am using a non-MX machine now, so I can't look.

Can someone else confirm? I can check tonight.

Re: MX-19 Beta 2.1 Feedback

2jcm On the 'Choose Partitions' I put Home to sda6. Swap is 2GB on sda1. It is not clear to me. Which partition in the installer did you select for / ? If you selected sda2, then it is doing what you ask. But if you don't want to overwrite your Mate Mint, you should select a different partition. For...

Re: MX-19 Beta 2.1 Feedback

I downloaded the beta 2.1, md5 was good, so I burned it to the USB and installed. Live everything worked so I hit install, and 10 minutes later I was in the rebooted beta 2.1. The install was normal, I used existing partitions, grub and install to root on my 4th 100G partition I use for testing. Fir...

Re: Default conky on MX-19 Beta 1

So, it's a bit big, no big deal, if reviewers judge by conky or what conky, that is pretty shallow. Too big for my eye, maybe others like SwampRabit, but this misses my point. It is so easy to change (40 easy choices) , remove conky completely, or edit the conky. I was not complaining about the conk...

Re: Default conky on MX-19 Beta 1

By big conky, I mean with those big font sizes showing dates and times. Nice and decorative, but too much for me...just my taste. I like the smaller text, compact style of the antiX conky, which I edit to make a bit smaller. No complaints, just commenting on the many options available fi one conky d...

Re: Default conky on MX-19 Beta 1

Jerry, Slightly off topic, but related. You said you had a collection of 40 conkys. This is a wonderful bounty, and gives users many options. The current one in the beta is not to my taste, what I call a "big conky". But so what, it is so easy to select a different one, or none at all. This is the g...
