      I suspect the time is wrong on your PC. Search or look for an earlier post about updating the time via ntp

      On the Pentiuum III I am still having the date problem and needed to do
      sudo ntpdate pool.ntp.org

        @ BobC
        Thanks very much I just worked it as I looked clock in my conkybar. This was also stopping sound from working in ncmpcpp via mpd every other sound device was working except mpd as it is server based. So far i am loving every minute of antiX 19.b3 even my scanner is working.

        Awesome work everybody.. Been Great morning

          The cli-aptiX errors below have now been fixed by updates to antiX 19-b3 on 12/10/19 Australian time
          Is their anyway to fix the beta servers if I run cli-aptiX looks a bit messy and would like to update to the latest v5 kernel at the moment the only kernel that shows in cli-aptiX is the installed kernel (Linux antix19-b3 4.9.189-antix.1-amd64-smp #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Aug 15 01:53:58 BST 2019 x86_64 GNU/Linux). If not will try adding Stevo’s Liquorix kernel.. (Also fixed typo from cli-antiX to cli-aptiX ).

          The time was painful until I installed ntp. Works good now..

          Was getting a lot of nvidia dbus error messages in my .desktop-session log file this was fixed by installing (at-spi2-core)

           (nvidia-settings:3271): dbind-WARNING **: 21:09:35.485: Error retrieving accessibility bus address: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.a11y.Bus was not provided by any .service files
          (nvidia-settings:3273): dbind-WARNING **: 21:09:35.485: Error retrieving accessibility bus address: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.a11y.Bus was not provided by any .service files 

          The repo errors below have now been fixed by updates to antiX 19-b3 on 12/10/19 Australian time
          Due to the poor repo’s of antiX 19.b3 I ended up install the liquorix kernel from their main repo with the command below. (With no keys errors)

          sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https && echo -e 'deb http://liquorix.net/debian sid main\ndeb-src http://liquorix.net/debian sid main\n\n# Mirrors:\n#\n# Unit193 - France\n# deb http://mirror.unit193.net/liquorix sid main\n# deb-src http://mirror.unit193.net/liquorix sid main' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list && curl http://liquorix.net/linux-liquorix.pub | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update
          then
          sudo apt-get install linux-image-liquorix-amd64 linux-headers-liquorix-amd64
          and ended up with = Linux antix19-b3 5.2.0-20.1-liquorix-amd64 #1 ZEN SMP PREEMPT liquorix 5.2-29.1~sid (2019-10-08) x86_64 GNU/Linux

          Also many Thanks to Stevo for hes work with Waterfox and removing the dependency of libc6 >2.29 and libstdc++6 > 9 awesome.

          I do understand this is a Beta version of antiX..

          I’m still loving it..

            Nice big set of updates for antiX19.b3 today Thanks antiX
            cli-aptix now shows all available kernels and does not ask to update the repo list constantly any more. Awesomeness
            Synaptic is now fixed as in usable and all areas of the screen cells are now adjustable and repo list works without errors. Awesomeness

            And something else which is now fixed on opening synaptic from the terminal this error is gone.. ERROR:root:Cannot import UbuntuDrivers: No module named ‘UbuntuDrivers

            Thanks to all so much.

            I’m still loving it..

              Trying out the beta3-Base version on my EeePC, 1005-HA, N270, 1GB RAM, 150 GB HDD. Still have a working antiX-19b2 on another partition.

              Installed SpaceFM-IceWM; but installed and use DoubleCmd-0.9.6 build-9018 preferencially over SpaceFM, by choice & familiarity.

              The beta3 has replaced MX-18.3 on this netbook. I am having to relearn things I’ve forgotten after 5 years of MX Linux. MX is still my choice on my T430, but antiX boots quickly to about 77MB at idle while MX uses about 240 MB on the netbook [NOTE: actually, more like 180 MB –forgot there were some things started at boot].

              antiX-19 is much improved over 17. It has really given this 32bit netbook a new lease on use. It is great for traveling even though the battery no longer holds a charge.

              I’ll post machine info in the morning, if needed. Haven’t made too many changes from the stock distro.

              Observations:
              Some of these may have been mentioned before, already fixed and/or coming in the next b4 or rc. Looking forward to the next iteration.

              1. Synaptic only starts for me from the Control Center. But then works as expected. From the menu it is called by synaptic-pkexec but doesn’t start. Could be something I’ve done. Wouldn’t be the first thing I’ve done to break a system.

              *** 2. Midori-7.x from the repo has run very well and is much lighter on resources than Ff-esr.
              [CORRECTION: Midori faulted to high CPU usage for some reason. REMOVED.]

              3. I do prefer Double Commander currently at v0.9.6 but probably because I’ve been using it for several years –Krusader for many years before that.

              4. It seems like after the stock screen-saver runs, the mouse cursor disappears? I can see the effect of moving it about, but no visible cursor. Logout/login gets it going again.

              5. The new Preferences interfaces are a great improvement, as well. Takes some learning….

              6.

                @ Richard

                With antiX the main Synaptic Package Manager.desktop file is in usr/share/applications/antix/Synaptic Package Manager and run with the command:gksu synaptic

                The synaptic-pkexec.sh seem to be related to systemd and wayland with polkitd rules I don’t think it is needed for antiX because non-systemd op.

                From Debian forums

                For me trying to run synaptic-pkexec from the commandline.

                After entering my password

                The script itself from /usr/bin

                #!/bin/sh
                USING_WAYLAND=0
                if [ ! "x${WAYLAND_DISPLAY}" = "x" ]; then
                    USING_WAYLAND=1
                fi
                if [ "x${XDG_SESSION_TYPE}" = "xwayland" ]; then
                    USING_WAYLAND=1
                fi
                if [ "x${USING_WAYLAND}" = "x1" ]; then
                    # Running wayland; start synaptic without pkexec
                    zenity --warning --width=500 --text \
                        "You are using Wayland environment, Synaptic will continue without administrative privileges.\\n\
                To make Synaptic fully functional, please restart your session without Wayland."
                    exec "/usr/sbin/synaptic" "$@"
                else
                    pkexec "/usr/sbin/synaptic" "$@"
                fi

                  @Koo,
                  Thanks for the path.
                  I’ll check there and see.

                  I know I found that command in one of the links.
                  [NOTE: Or maybe I added changed to it too see if it would work.]
                  I’ll look again to see if changing it to use gksu fixes it.

                  For me Synaptic only starts from within the Control Center. I’m sure I tried from a console also, but I’ll check again.

                  Regards.

                    @Koo,
                    From a terminal, started fine with “gksudo synaptic”
                    Using “sudo synaptic” gave error,
                    synaptic:11841): dbind-WARNING **: 13:12:02.109: Error retrieving accessibility bus address: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.a11y.Bus was not provided by any .service files
                    but started anyway.

                    “gksu synaptic” also started with no error.

                    Which is the preferred antiX method?

                      @Koo,

                      Found my problem with synaptic:
                      /usr/share/applications/antix/
                      contains no synaptic.desktop file?

                      although, it does exist here:
                      /usr/share/applications/synaptic.desktop

                      Maybe it just got overlooked?

                      Moved a copy to /usr/share/applications/antix/
                      and it seems to work now.

                        Have you installed base version? It doesn’t come with synaptic.

                        Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

                        antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

                          Yes, I did install the base.
                          Forgot to mention that above (now corrected).

                          Makes sense since the package installer is available.

                          I’ll read over the list. I suppose I must have installed Synaptic but Update Menu didn’t pick it up. The menu was looking in /usr/share/applications/antix/
                          But the synaptic.desktop was placed in
                          /usr/share/applications/

                          Not a real problem.
                          Really enjoying the antix/ betas and looking forward to the release. It has been a good learning experience finding my way in antiX.

                            The only reason I did not add gksu as it is not installed by default on all systems like Debian 10 etc

                            Maybe the script could be changed by adding gksu these two lines in the script ??

                            = exec “/usr/sbin/synaptic” “$@” to gksu exec “/usr/sbin/synaptic” “$@”

                            = pkexec “/usr/sbin/synaptic” “$@” to gksu pkexec “/usr/sbin/synaptic” “$@”

                            May try this some time.

                                Would the below have something to do with the fact I use i3wm..

                                Also in ~/desktop-session/log is this error = /usr/local/bin/desktop-session: line 192: /etc/desktop-session/file_compare: No such file or directory
