HELP: MX Installateur AMD ATI et Nvidia

Généralités

Les pilotes graphiques peuvent être extrêmement pénibles à installer, avec plusieurs étapes et de nombreux redémarrages. Cet Outil MX offre une méthode d’installation indolore des pilotes AMD/ATI ou Nvidia. Comme le code source utilisé (ddm-mx) est le même pour toutes les cartes, elles sont traitées ici en même temps bien qu’elles aient des icônes différenciées sur le tableau de bord de MX Outils.

Zsync

Background

Zsync is a file transfer program that runs on the command line. It allows you to download a file from a remote server of which you already have an older copy on your computer. zsync uses one or more "input" files that you name with the "-i" option, that file is analysed and the data that is identical is reused and only the changes are downloaded.

Installation

It's in the repos and can be installed in the usual manner.

Usage

Once installed, the program can be used following this model:

Thunar -- Custom actions

Introduction

Thunar has a selection of extensions that allows users to create custom actions that can extend its functionality. These actions operate on files and folders found within Thunar and can do anything from bulk-renaming to running specialized scripts. The MX Linux devs created many useful ones that show up in the context menu, but users can easily create their own.

Example

Explanation

Parameters

Kiosk

[DRAFT!]

Introduction

For some purposes, it may be desirable to lock down an application or system in order to protect it from users. Examples include computers in a school or public location for general use, where the file system, desktop and internet access need to be closed. Full OS such as Porteus exist, but this page is limited to the use of MX Linux in kiosk mode.

Scanners

On this page:

Though most scanners will work out of the box, there are occasionally problems that arise. This thread contains solutions that have been worked out for such problems.

Brother

This entry addresses in particular Brother Multi-Function Printers that use the brscan3 scanner driver.  It may be applicable for devices using brscan4 and newer drivers.  The solution worked for Brother MFC-9320CW.

Tumbler cpu usage

<Retrieved from the Arch Wiki December 1, 2016>

Tumblerd, the service that watches the file system and notifies the system when a thumbnail needs to be made may get stuck in a loop, see the bug report. The following script is a temporary workaround to stop this from happening. Copy, and paste this into a .sh file, save it somewhere in your home directory, mark the file as executable then set up the system to autostart it at system startup.
