Re: MX Tunes

Saw these guys in concert earlier this year. Love this music video they did with Dolly Parton.

Re: MX 18.3 review in Forbes

I agree with this part about the "grey" color (in a constructive manner) but especially the background of the left pane: "If I have one complaint, it's simply that the installer itself looks dated. Dull grey color schemes feel like they're from a different era." I get that criticism, but what is th...

Re: XFCE and DE innovation

I like xfce for its simplicity and capabilities. But I am a fan of KDE. It's not because I am blind for KDE, but it's improving bug free and stability. I was surprised when I see KDE 5.16s performance, with 0 -1% cpu and 350 mb Ram in KDE neon, it's quite challenging to xfce which was once at that ...

Re: MX-19 Beta 1 Feedback

does it go black, or does it still have text on the screen. if black, try the i915.invert_brightness=1 as a boot parameter. or try just adjusting the brightness (up and down, because the values could be backwards) after waiting a while. I have 2 lenovo cheapies that do this. its annoying, and yes, ...

Re: MX-19 Beta 1 Feedback

I tried hitting the esc key Why, exactly? Was that a live or installed boot? Live, though same issue when I tried a full install on an external drive. When it came to the plymouth screen to see what the text said, thought maybe I could find out why it was freezing, plus felix recommend I try it in ...

Re: MX-19 Beta 1 Feedback

I tried hitting the esc key while booting MX 19 on my Lenovo 11e with the bay trail cpu and it just refuses to get past the initial boot screen. It goes black and freezes right at the plymouth/MX screen. It gets to the screen that says udev and that's it. MX 18 boots on this machine, as does Ubuntu....

Re: MX-19 Beta 1 Feedback

This comment to the Blog announcement comes from Ruud Kuin Testing 19-Beta-1 on my Acer Aspire One Netbook. Quite fast for an old machine! Some windows (MXTools) are too high for the screen, Maybe some/one of dev’s could look into that? Maximum height 550 pixels, for instance. Scrolling works, so g...

Re: MX-19 Beta 1 Feedback

Doesn't look like there is any MX Linux installed. But you wrote: The HP laptop skips past my selection to boot a full install of MX 19 like it isn't even there and boots into my Debian install instead. Where do you select MX-19 to boot, their is no menu entry with the Debian Grub-menu? I think we ...
