 Forum: KDE MX-14   Topic: Strange Problem with Power Management

I guess with a desktop, you don't have the function keys to adjust display brightness, so it would be more of an issue. Maybe you could try to create a key combo that would mimic a laptops function keys to achieve the same task? No, there are no keyboard functions that control display brightness. E...

My SOP (Linux or Windows) is to let new updates sit for a week or so. This is but one example. MSFT also had a bad update last week that got pulled a couple days later, but only after it had borked a bunch of machines. That's not a bad policy, although since updates occur almost daily with Linux, I...

Once in a while when the planets are in a certain alignment, the Power Management feature will decide to dim my display after a time delay. Checking Settings > Power Management shows the Dim Display feature is turned "off" (unticked). But once this dimming behavior starts, the only way to ...

I don't know if this is a problem specific to KDE/MX-14, but I thought I'd post it here because that's what my system is based on using. Anyway, there's an intermittent problem playing a random video on SMTube with SMPlayer selected as the default video player. Sometimes a message flashes at the bot...

Sorry, I'm feeling blinkered. I can't understand what winetricks is about. I can't seem make it do anything. Second what is "user agent" and "Fx". User Agent Switcher is a Firefox add-on that tricks web servers into believing you're using a different operating system or a differ...

My original MX-14 installation was done in March 2014 soon after it went into production, and I immediately added KDE using the original AntiX meta-package installer (not the new MX-installer). I haven't done any "apt dist-upgrade" operations. I only applied individual package upgrades as ...

Is anyone using redshift? I've taken a liking to it, especially in the late evening when I want to take it easy on my eyes. I've found gtk-redshift, but it doesn't do much good in my KDE setup. Is there a GUI I can use in KDE, and is there a way to have it start automatically? I don't have a camera...

So is this happening only to people who had installed KDE or parts of KDE?

Nope. I must be leading a charmed life because I have kde_full installed on MX-14 with lots of bells and whistles added, and the python-ldb package was updated this morning without incident.

I wonder how they calculated the savings, how much worth is not having virus infections and lost of data and productivity because of malware. What's the value of not having your data stolen because of malware? Having worked in a MS-centric corporate environment for years, I can tell you that virus ...
