Users Manual -- translations

The Users Manual is produced by the MX Linux Community in American Standard English. It can be converted to another language using the Google Translate pull-down menu, which provides a basic translation which, though useful, is often difficult to understand.

Community members are working on correcting these machine translations (THANKS!), beginning with Sections 1 (Introduction) and 3 (Configuration). This page keeps track of the completed Sections by language.

HELP: MX Switch User

Once Switchuser has been enabled, Sessions can be switched back and forth between users without closing. Keystrokes for navigation:
  • Ctrl-Alt-F7 for the original user
  • Ctrl-Alt-F8 for the second user
The tool can be run conveniently by clicking on the users icon at the top of the Start menu; if not present, right-click the Menu icon ≻ Properties ≻ Behavior tab, check the Switch Users box and enter the command mx-switchuser.
