Re: Need guide to tweak openvpn script from systemd to sysvinit.

...so the openvpn-install.sh script by angristan is better choice. Yes, the script itself is nice. The only part is the firewall rules setup and the systemd-calls to enable services which needs to be tweaked for MX. If the manually approach worked now for that's good. So, I put adjusting the script...

Re: Mighty mouse, cannot drag & drop

Sure I will go through it and take out any identifying details and then post. The question still is. Why does MX insist to have my hostname for debug? Anyone with a decent track record as a sysadmin will know it is not acceptable. Was it oversight or intentional. ? If intentional, I really just wan...

Re: Remote access to GUI (VNC bug?)

I have to use now free teamviewer version, it's pain. Not sure about the vnc issue. Have you tried Anydesk, which you can install from MX Package installer -> Populare apps. IIRC, you can use "local" connections within anydesk by connecting to the local IP address. But using normal anydesk-id seem ...

Re: Some questions (Grub Update, Keyring, Installation on other HDD)

- MX wanted to do a update of GRUB and asked me where to install it. I don't know where to install it. I chose the 128GB partition. What is the standard-target? Really bad for Linux noobs such question. For update grub you would select as installation target for the grub-bootloader the BOOT disk no...

Re: Some questions (Grub Update, Keyring, Installation on other HDD)

- I use Opera as a browser. Every time if I start Opera MX asks me to write a password for key-ring. Why I need a password for a key-ring? Opera is chromium based and is using a keyring (for it's own "session" type of secretes) which get's automatically unlocked during login (EDIT: and created if n...

Thanks Fehlix. I'll do this the next time an update shows up.
You might do without waiting for the next update like this:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg --configure grub-pc
which shall finalize that last not-yet finished configuration step.

Re: "Configuring GRUP-PC" message when installing Updates

Last week when I attempted to install the latest round of updates on my computer, I got a message box on the update screen stating "Configuring GRUP-PC". This was something that I'd never seen before and since I didn't know what it was I clicked CANCEL and then the update proceeded to complete. But...
