Enable mobile broadband

Introduction: Suggested actions to enable mobile broadband connections on MX

1. Make sure you have a device to connect to using:

dmesg |grep wwan

Which for me returns:

[ 4.253157] cdc_mbim 2-2:1.12 wwan0: register 'cdc_mbim' at usb-0000:00:14.0-2, CDC MBIM, 0e:e6:77:a6:bf:96[/code]

Here we have success where cdc_mbim has been discovered.
If the command returns nothing, see the end of this note for suggested troubleshooting steps.

2. RC the network tool and select edit connections

HELP: MX System Sounds

MX System Sounds 



There are three main areas to MX System Sounds.

1. XFCE Event Sounds

These settings correspond to the EVENT SOUNDS settings found in the Appearance > Settings.  Either Appearance or MX System Sounds may be used to adjust these preferences.

2.  Session Sounds


gdevilspie is a neat little GTK+ app that serves as a frontend (GUI) for devilspie2 that makes all sorts of detailed manipulations on windows very easy. In general, it is used by creating a new rule, describing what you want to manipulate and how it should act. Details can be found under Links, below.


HELP: MX Repo Manager


This tool greatly simplifies the process of changing the package repositories  that are use for updating/upgrading and installation. For a general background on repositories, consult Section 5.2 of the relevant Users Manual.

The sources are set during installation depending on the selected timezone and language, and will generally work well. But there are many instances where a user might wish to change those selections.
