Re: moving encrypted partition

You may have better luck if you upgrade to gparted 0.33, found in the test repo tab in MX Package Installer. In any event you may need to run gparted as root from within a teminal:

Either

Code: Select all

gksudo gparted
or

Code: Select all

su
then enter your root password, then

Code: Select all

gparted

Re: MX on iMac?

You could try installing the Debian 4.9 kernel on your live USB (on another computer) following the instructions here and see if it will boot normally on your iMac. It's worth a shot. (Maybe.)

If that doesn't work, try the newest 5.x kernel from the stable repo.

Re: flash drive not recognized

1 It's a thumb drive, not a SD card. What's the correct command for a thumb drive? 2 Mint is installed on the same computer Oh, I thought it was an SD card for some reason. Must be my cold. :( I saw "Sandisk" and automatically assumed it was an SD card, probably because they're what I used to use w...

Re: flash drive not recognized

Also a question: you say it can mount in Linux Mint. Is that on a different computer or is it the same computer that MX is on? If it's different maybe you have a problem with the physical card reader on the machine.

Re: flash drive not recognized

Try in a terminal with sudo.

Code: Select all

sudo mkdir /mnt/sdcard && sudo mount /dev/sdX /mnt/sdcard
changing the X to whatever gparted shows the sd card being, sdb, sdc, or whatever. If it doesn't work and you get errors, copy the terminal's text and paste it in a reply inside of code tags.

Re: Active Window titlebar color change...

By the way, using the version of gimp that comes with MX-18.3 I was able to directly open title-3-active.xpm for editing. Of course I wouldn't be able to modify it due to permissions. You'd have to copy the theme to your home directory and change ownership of it from root to your user, then do your ...

Re: Active Window titlebar color change...

They don't make sense to me either. From what I gather from the article you have to slightly modify gimp or something to make it be able to edit them. That's what his script is supposed to do. Bear in mind that the date on the article is 2009 so it's for earlier versions of gimp and probably xfwm as...
