Re: Signed iso files

Peppermint: http://peppermintos.com/gpg-verification/ Ubuntu: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VerifyIsoHowto#Verify_signature I see some people sign the md5sums and some people sign the ISOs, from what I understand the advantage of signing the md5sums is that it's a quick operation to sign a one ...

Re: Signed iso files

Maybe post the commands in short form on the Sourceforge page. Who will read the wiki before downloading? And consider the positive effect on those who visit the Sourceforge account when they see that antiX and MX use signatures for the ISOs.

Re: vertical panel with a Close button

Here comes the new antiX-16-alpha1 with some tweaks applied http://s10.postimg.org/7feb5a8mx/anti_X_16a1_masalla.png I will attach my configs a little bit later. The most interesting trick was that I found out that masalla icon theme works with antiX JWM version if you delete all the scalable folder...

Re: Local shared apt-get cache

You could also take an external device (HDD, USB stick, SD card), create a partition for your apt cache and mount it with noauto option on /var/cache/apt/archives/ via fstab. Then mount the partition before an update, run the update on the first machine, unmount the external device, mount it on the ...

Re: Increasing Root partition size.

Shrinking a partition from the left will increase the risk of damaging it. I cannot provide a link for this information, but I've read it several times. What takes up mich space in root is the packages cache. It should be possivle to move the apt cache folder to somewhere else, it wouldn't even requ...

Re: Linuxmint downloads links hacked via WordPress

Seems it wasn't a Wordpress hack, the password for the blog was "upMint"... Hey, along with a "snort" smily, can we get an animated "facepalm" one? ohgeez-1.gif Wow. Where did you get that info? That is crazy scary for a Linux web site. Sounds to me like an attempt to discredit Linux Mint, as if th...

Re: MX 15 Repository: The palemoon thread

The problem with the new Pale Moon is that it is not based on Gecko engine anymore but on its fork called Goana. I read somewhere (didn't bookmark the link, sorry) that websites are scanning the browser to find out whether it is a mobile or a PC/Notebook version. Goana is recognized as Goa which is ...

Re: 6 weeks in (and an explosion)

I looked a bit closer at *the Philippine incident* data this morning: 1,834 downloads occurred on a single day, 90% on Linux machines. The only thing I can think of is an institutional OS replacement or upgrade of some kind. So I emailed the largest LUG I could find in the country asking if they wa...

Re: Plan to install - Panda USB Wireless Dongle: PAUD5

It depends on the chip, try to find out the exact model then look there https://wiki.debian.org/WiFi
