      Google Chrome drop down menus work out of the box.

      Is this on IceWM? I am curious what antiX GTK theme you are using and which exactly version of Chrome…
      Thanks and Regards.

        I downloaded the file “locale-antix_0.1.2_all.deb” from https://gitlab.com/antix-contribs/locale-antix/-/tree/main/packages

        I was trying to install this deb, but I am getting an error that it is not in Debian format, both when I am using dpkg or Gdebi to install…
        Is there anything else to do to make this install?

          If possible, all new locale-antix feedback be published in the corresponding topic.
          sudo apt install
          and drag and drop the file to the terminal.
          Still a beta, so please forgive any errors or problems derived from it. Better test in a installation or live session that you don’t care it may break (various breaking system bugs were found and fixed, but more may still be there).

            I will try to post feedback to the place you pointed to when I have anything worthwhile. For now I am struggling with installation still…
            Following your advice I am getting:
            $ sudo apt install /home/demo/Downloads/locale-antix_0.1.2_all.deb
            [sudo] password for demo:
            Reading package lists… Error!
            E: Invalid archive signature
            E: Internal error, could not locate member control.tar{.zst,.lz4,.gz,.xz,.bz2,.lzma,}
            E: Could not read meta data from /home/demo/Downloads/locale-antix_0.1.2_all.deb
            E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

            I re-downloaded the deb and still the same… Looks like I am getting a corrupted deb?
            Thanks and regards…

              Anticapitalista is doing me the favor of uploading it to the repos (thanks for that). Hopefully it works properly then.

                Dear olsztyn,

                For your information, I did the test on;
                – antix 21 sysvinit (not runit),
                – completely installed on a usb stick (so not a demo LIVE usb),
                – desktop installed (rox-icewm),
                – after doing “sudo apt update” and “sudo apt upgrade”

                I don’t understand why this doesn’t work for you.

                Best regards,
                Wallon

                  And what is the GTK theme you are using? Control Center —> Desktop –> Customize Look and Feel. In the left column current tab.
                  And what is your Chrome version? Settings –> About.

                  Thanks and Regards…

                    1) GTK theme

                    b) Icones => papirus-mini-antix

                    2) Google Chrome => version 94.0.4606.81

                      Thank you!
                      According to antiX expert skidoo this drop-down menu issue is likely to be caused by certain GTK themes compatibility.
                      However anticapitalista later decided it is Chrome issue, and nothing can be done on antiX to fix it.

                      The fact you found it works with Arc-EvoPro2 theme is consistent with what was earlier tested by Calciumsodium as working with this default theme.
                      I do not remember if I tested previously with this theme, there were so many moving pieces, but surely will test shortly if it works for me. The only difference is I am Runit but I do not think it should make any difference.
                      Thanks again.

                        Hello Xsecure,

                        Thank you for your mini-patch, it seems to work well with my network shared disks. AntiX shuts down in a few seconds without any issues !
                        (And it is much faster than previous antiX 19 sysvinit as far as shutting down is concerned.)

                        you could change the added lines in the following way :

                        echo 'Unmounting network shares...'
                        umount -a -r -t nfs,nfs4,cifs

                        Rather than “trying to unmount…” which is more desperate 🙂 Actually the process is so quick I did not see anything…

                        Should it be done for other mounted volumes like USB key USB disks ?

                          Thanks, @Girafenaine. The “Trying” was because it was untested, and replacing it with your suggestion is better.

                          Thanks for testing and confirming it worked. Without this we wouldn’t have know if there was a working alternative.
                          I will send a merge request to the antiX devs with the proposed change later today.

                          Thanks.

                          Should it be done for other mounted volumes like USB key USB disks ?

                          Unmounting other file systems is delegated to sysvinit scripts (“stopping services in /etc/rc6.d …”), to avoid redundancy.

                            You are welcome Xecure, I should rather thank you again for your work on antiX and its live system !

                            About the new live system in antiX 21 (runit), I find it more difficult to create a custom entry in the grub menu. In antiX 19, I could edit directly /grub/grub.cfg and easily write a new entry. In antiX 21, the grub.cfg is not so easy to read and edit, because of a lot of substitutions ($kernel instead of antiX-5.10.57…). I created a new entry thanks to the designed option in the submenu, but I could not make it default nor modify it. More precisely in the grub.cfg file there is “default=custom”, but when antiX boots the selected entry is the “options” submenu and not the custom entry.

                            I wish we could have something easier to customize and manage by editing the grub.cfg file.

                              Am seeing disk activity displayed in conky when I would not think it would be active.

                              Please, first update your system to the latest packages.
                              After updating, remove all runit services you don’t need. You can use the runit-service-manager.sh script (if runit-service-manager is installed).
                              If you still see disk use, install iotop and show us what the program sees is using the disk with
                              sudo iotop -o

                              $ sudo iotop -o
                              sudo: iotop: command not found

                              runit-service-manager.sh script ??? Apparently I do not have this installed is this in Synaptic?

                                  I haven’t contributed much on the antiX Live System. Most of the work on improving it is antiapitalista and fehlix’ doing.
                                  The new live system requires you change the grub-env.conf instead of the grub.conf file, which makes it easier than before.

                                  @namida12
                                  both runit-service-manager and iotop are not included by default in the beta (iotop is a separate tool used to see I/O activity).
                                  On the next release there should be no longer any read/write extra activity, which is probably related to some service with some problem.
