I need Bluetooth help

Howdy! Bluetooth has me aggravated to no end with 19.1. Prior to the 19.1 upgrade I had no bt issues. After the upgrade I totally lost bt( another post solved ). My current problem is I cannot see my Sherman BT speakers. I have tried all the current fixes I can find. None have worked thus far. I ins...

Re: Firefox settings

Here are 2 more in depth guides. I use a mix of articles for my about:config settings. Wish I could just move them all and have it work!!

Re: Firefox settings <SOLVED>

Ok, I installed MX and copied pref.js....that did not work. What has come closest to working was copyiing the entire profile folder into the new profile and deleting compatability.ini. Without deleting that 1 file I got an error and had to either quit or create a new profile for ff to start. After I...

Re: Has anyone played around with MX Linux?

Thanks 151Tom!

I will make a note. One of the things I like most about Mint Cinnamon is how polished and professional it looks. MX looks 10 yrs old, but, so far I like the features I have been able to play around with for a few hours.

I will try Helen Keller just for the name alone!! =P

Re: Has anyone played around with MX Linux?

I created a live USB and holy hell, it is blazing fast compared to Mint on my set up.....i3 w 4g of ram on an Acer all in one. I expect a full install will be even faster. Now, being a somewhat thinking man, I wonder is is because it is a fresh install without all my programs added or just works wel...

Firefox settings transfer [SOLVED]

Howdy, I change a TON of firefox settings in the about:config section to increase privacy and security. The problem is I have to do this on every computer, then every new computer, then every new os, etc, etc. If I take the default profile from my workhorse machine and replace the contents of the de...

Re: Has anyone played around with MX Linux?

Well, I discovered you can install Mint XFCE alongside Cinnamon, so that is what I did. I will play around with it and see which one I like better then maybe play with MX, although I am not far enough into my linux journey to understand why 1 would be better than the other. Thanks for the replies!! ...

Has anyone played around with MX Linux?

Saw the post about distro watch, doesn't really influence my interest, but MX seems to be way easier to navigate and more customizable. Does anyone have MX and Mint? Likes/dislikes for both? Mint sure appears much more polished, but, from my reading, MX seems to operate more smoothly and be an easie...

Nope, not there. "no search results when I type 'blueman'". Everything is listed alphabetically, so I only included the entries up to just past where blue man should be when I entered 'blue'". Searched synaptic manager and it is not there either. I am guessing, and it is just a guess,...

Re: Seriously lost trying to install blueman

Apologies for not including a screenshot and saving us a step. Had to get the kids to bed (Bangkok time) and I am probably the worst photo editor to peck at a keyboard. :D To answer your question I searched "blueman' 1st, then "blue man", then finally 'blue', which is the screen shot....
