Does vga=980 give you 1600x900? If so, I would be glad to add it to the F6 list. Yes it does. The following command should show you the current resolution: cat /sys/class/graphics/fb0/virtual_size It shows 1600x900 $ cat /sys/class/graphics/fb0/virtual_size 1600,900 And here's the output of the `hw...

The text bootsplash looks good. I have one minor issue (and it's not really a problem with the bootsplash). My display has a 1600x900 resolution. Using the preselected "vga=795" mode (which I think is for a 1280x1024 resolution) results in a "Unsupported Video Mode" screen (or wo...

Grrr. So, unetbootin is preferred, unless you waste a couple hours making non-startable installs before giving up and using dd? I didn't say that Unetbootin was preferred, I said there's some antiX features you can't use with a LiveUSB key that's created by dd-ing the iso file to the key. Antix has...

...It's not clear to me what the difference is between installing a package from the MX Package Installer and installing it from Synaptic. I thought that maybe it was pulling from custom repos not available through Synaptic or was pulling extra packages in that aren't dependencies. I've tried insta...

Is there any problem having both the Backports and the LTS repos enabled?

I don't think there's any problem. The Debian wiki article I linked to says "You can add other repositories like proposed-updates, Backports or deb-multimedia."

I did note in that thread that he said he had originally used the '603-1' version of Unetbootin to create the LiveUSB. I see that the current Unetbootin version is at '608'. I wonder if he would have had a better result using the current version of Unetbootin? The unetbootin version I used is the o...

I was one of the "xfce only" votes in the poll.

I'm kind of surprised that I'm using Xfce4 only. A year ago at this time I was pretty much only interested in using KDE, I had tried Xfce4 a couple times and didn't really care for it.

There's also a "NoDisplay" option: http://standards.freedesktop.org/desktop-entry-spec/latest/ar01s05.html For the Xfce related items that you don't want to see in the KMenu, you can copy their .desktop files from the /usr/share/applications/ folder to your ~/.local/share/applications/ fol...

"Silent Observer" hasn't reported back yet, but according to a post he made at the Kubuntu forum (https://www.kubuntuforums.net/showthread.php?65990-Kernel-Panic-in-under-two-seconds&p=355010&viewfull=1#post355010) creating the LiveUSB with the `dd` command and reinstalling Kubuntu...
