...Thanks, I'll remember that the next time I install an OS. It's too late for me to take advantage of it now, though. For MX-14 I think this should list what you've installed on it since it was originally installed from LiveDVD/LiveUSB: comm <(awk '/^ii/{print $2}' /usr/local/share/mx/installed.tx...

I have used dpkg --get-selections > app-list to list all installed software, but have wondered if there was a way to list just the packages themself .... This will give you a list of just the names of the packages that are installed: dpkg -l|awk '/^ii /{print $2}'|cut -f1 -d: > installed_packages.t...

Nope...I have both 11 (11.0.12) and 12 (11.9.92) on DVD... When I installed Mepis 11, I ran sgfxi for the driver, but as I remember, the live session to do the install was just the "default"... If you're the booting it from the same entry in the boot selections menu Mepis 11 (11.0.12) sho...

I'm fine using the 179.xxx driver...this started just out of curiosity. I wanted to see how a couple of distros worked, but then every one I tried didn't have a cursor. What gets me is I remember running Mepis 11 on DVD, and it used to have a cursor. I mean, I was running 8.5 until about a year ago...

Lesee...MX 14, Mint, antiX, Ubuntu (2 versions), Mepis 11 and 12...and Mepis 11, MX 14, and Mint on flash drive. That's what I have around here. I've tried both wired and wireless meeses, just in case. Thanks for taking the time for this... If you're interested in experimenting with it some, you ca...

This is sort of a variation of "split view".

I kind of miss Dolphin's F4 option that would split the window into an upper pane with the file manager stuff, and a lower pane with a terminal opened to whatever directory you were in in Dolphin.

I'm assuming you have the 173xx series nvidia driver installed in M11 for your FX 5500, but I can't tell for sure because you ran inxi as root. Maybe run inxi again as a regular user, this command: `inxi -Gxxx`. For most recent distros a live session will probably use either the nouveau driver or th...
