MX-15

Netflix

You can look at a Netflix show/movie on MX-15, but the method varies by the architecture of your system (enter inxi -S in a terminal if you are unsure).

64 bit architecture

This is straightforward: just install Google Chrome from MX Package Installer and Netflix will work OOTB.

32 bit architecture

Google no longer provides a 32bit version of Chrome, so you need to use a workaround.

xscreensaver and the New Login Button

By default, xscreensaver looks for a service called gdmflexiserver to provide a "New Login" function from within the screensaver, so that a different user than has the screen locked can login.

This does not work with lightdm, which is what MX uses.

This can be made to work with a little extra code in an ~/.Xresources file.

Create ~/.Xresources 

with the following contents:

xscreensaver.newLoginCommand: dm-tool switch-to-greeter
