Re: Open a jar application with a single click

Can the color of the jar be changed, it looks like a jar of yellow mustard, can it be changed to more of a brown/coffee (java) color.

Re: reinstalling grub legacy in mbr

Do you still have the Mepis 11 LiveDVD/LiveUSB?
It's been awhile since I ran M11 but I'm pretty sure it included some Mepis utility to repair/reinstall grub.
That might be safer than using the MX-15 boot repair tool, (Mepis 11 used grub legacy (aka grub 1), MX-15 uses grub2)

Re: Update question

I use the update manager (from panel) to update my MX15 system whenever updates are indicated. Recently I have noticed that there are now multiple items which are "Kept Back" including the Network Manager, can someone explain why these updates are kept back? Thanks Ray Clicking the button...

Re: MX 15 respin for cutting-edge hardware?

I think I see the problem now.

MX-15 is using uppercase for the /EFI and /EFI/BOOT folders, but they're lowercase in antiX-16.

Re: MX 15 respin for cutting-edge hardware?

... my initial problem with recognition of the usb stick has been resolved by changing the case of the folders 'efi' & 'efi/boot' on the usb stick to upper case, ie EFI & EFI/BOOT... I'm wondering why you needed to change them to uppercase, they should've been uppercase already. Here's some...

Re: would be so nice to have in MX : Pkg-browser

The `dpkg -S <filename>` command will show which Debian package installed a particular file, but I'm not aware of any gui tool that does that.


edit: it looks packagesearch can also do that, and is a gui tool.

Re: MX 15 respin for cutting-edge hardware?

there's still room to modify it further. One thing you might add is to run the update-pciids & update-usbids commands to update those lists before doing the snapshot/remaster, that was something I had mike (mmikeinsantarosa) do in his thread here: http://forum.mepiscommunity.org/viewtopic.php?f...
