 Forum: KDE MX-15   Topic: MX-15 - favorite KDE tweaks

Around February 2014, I posted a list of things I had to do in order to get KDE up and running on MX-14. I haven't attempted this with MX-15 64-bit as of yet because things are much too busy ATM, but I'll probably get around to it sometime in January '16. It should only take 15 minutes to get a semi...

If asunder is looking for /dev/cdrom then you should point it to /dev/sr0 instead. The /dev/cdrom device used to be a symlink to /dev/sr0 but they "fixed" it by removing the symlink which breaks some default settings. I think they had to do this for the case where more the one disc drive ...

For a GUI solution, I would probably try first Start menu > System > System Profiler and Benchmark (hardinfo) The CD-ROM device isn't shown in System Profiler and Benchmark. When I insert a CD in the drive, I can open a file manger and see the files on the disk. But I don't know what the mount poin...

When I launch asunder, it looks for a CD-ROM device under /dev/cdrom and throws up a message that says it can't open it. I can change "/dev/cdrom" in asunder's preferences to another location, but I don't know how to identify the CD-ROM device -- it's definitely NOT /dev/cdrom, because I l...

Why do you have the idea that is impossible/hard to install 32-bit wine on 64-bit MX (Debian), from what I understand the system changed considerable since I tried installing 32-bit apps in Debian years ago (and I guess you probably had the same experience) right now there's multiarch support, you ...

joany, Since 2007, I have always run a 64 bit version of Mepis, starting with 6.5 and only stepped down to the 32 bit pae when the MX was released. I always found the 64 bit ran faster on dual processors, Tri and quad desktop systems. I always used wine to run 4 windows 98se programs because the us...

I did some searching and stumbled on a thread in the Ubuntu forums about 64-bit WINE. Apparently, it's possible (at least with Ubuntu) to install 64-bit WINE and run 32-bit Windows applications on it by changing something called the "WINEPREFIX" to 32-bit. Then there's this from the offici...

Now that MX-15 is approaching its ship date, I'm faced with a dilemma as to which version to install. I'm a 32-bit pae aficionado and have only ventured into 64-bit one time -- I believe it may have been MEPIS 7, but I'm not sure. Unfortunately, the results back then were less than stellar, mostly b...

I think what Joany meant was that an attacker can boot into a LiveUSB or a LiveCD and use that to bypass any security provided by password protecting the bootloader. Maybe this is what you meant too. You are 100% correct, and I apologize if I wasn't clear in my post. I was mainly referring to a Lin...
