If your new PC runs Windows 8 with secure boot and UEFI BIOS, you'll most likely have to disable it and change back to legacy BIOS in order to boot MX or MEPIS from the HDD. ... windows-8/

Re: streamtuner2 The streamtuner2 package in the repositories is out-of-date. No stations show up in the menus when you launch it. You can get a more recent version (V 2.1.9) as a .deb file from Sourceforge: Streamtuner2 is good for recording, but...

If you watched the 60 Minutes CBS show they covered (again) the ludicrously easy IRS system for returns. I've seen it before. I got mad again. Me too. I file my tax return electronically with the IRS as soon as I possibly can before someone else files it for me and gets a huge refund using my tax i...

I disagree with the basic premise of the article -- that nobody could have foreseen the problem of Internet insecurity or designed around the problem. The fact is that it is insane to connect any critical system to an information network that just about anybody can gain access to. Post retirement, I...

Thanks Joany. But I had accidently hit or pressed on one of the 5 monitor buttons. I guess that your method wouldn't restore things for me since I had accidentally changed a hardware setting. Quite true ... software fixes generally won't correct hardware (mis)settings. :lol: However, there are 1,00...

I've found the "Save Session" feature very handy for restoring the desktop when I mess it up. When that happens, logging out of KDE and back in again usually restores everything back to normal. Here's how to set it up: System Settings > Startup and Shutdown > Session Management > On Login ...

There will be a time but I think right now it would be premature to remove the Mepis name. Since MX gets top billing and because there are MEPIS sub-forums that are active, I think keeping MEPIS in the name is fine. If the forum were called "MEPIS and MX" instead, then a name change might...

I was using the MX-14.4 Live DVD yesterday and noticed that one of the repositories is different than the one on my permanent HDD installation. The one on my permanent installation is: deb | | mx-14 | test The one on the DVD is: deb | http://main.mepis-deb.o...

I just did. apt-get update && apt-get install pepperflashplugin-nonfree and played a flash game in chromium. Chrome/Chromium use Pepper Flash OOTB. Firefox/Iceweasel use Adobe Flash but both can use Pepper Flash with the freshplayerplugin wrapper -- if you're lucky, unlike me. The reason I ...

@DannyM MX was created specifically for computers like your old Compaq. There are other distros that also might work on it -- Knoppix and Puppy come to mind -- but I think you'll find the MX/Antix community to be a real treasure. There's nary a problem they can't help you solve. Oh, and you might tr...
