Re: MX 17 Repository: The qBittorrent Thread

Will check mine again when I get off this machine and back on the Galago. I downloaded some stuff with the current version and it was seeding those downloads fine. Doing a search and downloading something from the list doesn't cause anything to hang. Will check it again to be sure. Meanwhile I'll se...

Re: Getting ready to pull the plug on MX-15 ... About ready to

What I do is not conventional but it works. Have a copy of Puppy on an HD. After any installation use the Puppy's Grub4Dos utility to make a new Grub and put it on the MBR.

Getting ready to pull the plug on MX-15 ... About ready to

Getting ready to pull the plug on MX-15 ... About ready to format the partitions. It's a dual boot Lenovo G560 laptop. MX Linux 15 & Windows 7 Home_P 64x. I'm thinking that cleaning off those partitions is going to mess up grub / windows boot. I'll probably will have to boot up with a win-7 rescue d...

Re: Email programs with MX Linux 17.1 and Linux in General

I checked the "stable" repo by searching for Claws and there is lots of plugins and things for Claws. I see the - Papirus icon theme, but not the program / mail themes.

Just thought I would check in with older laptop before ...

Hi all .. Just thought I would check in with Lenovo G560 laptop before wiping the MX_15 Partitions. My mother used this computer most of the time. It has Windows_7_64x_Home -&- MX_Linux_64x_15_Fusion. I'm really going to miss Fusion. Oh and I can actually see everything on this screen and I don't ha...
