      This is an edited version of the original written by rokytnj for antiX

      To keep from forum burnout being asked the same questions over and over and over again. We are a very small team of testers and developers so any help you can give yourself. It will be appreciated greatly by all using AntiX.

      Here is how this biker who used to be computer clueless. Let alone Linux or AntiX clueless.

      This is a text file I keep in /home/username and name it search.

      Copy and paste this into google when you wish to search. Put in your problem 1st. Then paste in google’s search box

      site:antixforum.com

      Since this site is very new, you probably won’t get (m)any hits to the above.

      More than 99% of the time. We have already posted a solution to your problems.

      Another good one liner is

      site:forums.debian.net

      and one more for your text file should be Edit: Server change since I made this sticky.

      site:forum.mxlinux.org

      So added on the above date to compensate for my removed link : Debian search
      and Google

      For good measure:
      Another privacy non tracking search engine I use is ixquick

      Lastly. If you have a problem. Plus. You used my method to solve it. Do us a favor. Start a thread describing exactly your problem. “Don’t Work or Help” do not qualify as a good thread title. Give some info on the details of your problem.
      Then post the link you found using my suggestion here to fix your problem. Then take a little time to describe what steps you took to fix it.

        Videos that will help you when dazed and confused

        dolphin_oracle videos

        Dolphin Oracle put his heart and soul making these videos so your journey into using AntiX will be that much easier and painless.
        The least you can do is give the man a like when you watch one of his videos.

                    site:antixforum.com

                    Along these lines, for example I wanted to do a search for antix 23 test.

                    To do so, I went to duckduckgo.com and entered the following string:
                    site:antixforum.com antiX 23 test

                    That search brought up a number of possibilities, but the very first one was indeed our current primary test thread for the future antiX 23 release –
                    https://www.antixforum.com/forums/topic/antix-23-alpha1-runit-full-64bit-for-testing/

                    Suppose you are interested in PPC’s handy tool FT10.
                    site:antixforum.com FT10

                    These links (and a few more) show up:
                    https://www.antixforum.com/forums/topic/future-antix-versions-with-ft10-as-default/
                    https://www.antixforum.com/forums/topic/ft10-vertical-side/
                    https://www.antixforum.com/forums/reply/75391/

                    So if you’re having problems searching for antiX solutions in our forum, go to your favorite Web site searching tool and type in
                    site:antixforum.com "your search string", replacing “your search string” with whatever you’re looking for. If nothing useful comes up, change a few words or terms. If all else fails, please ask; we’re glad to help. We appreciate it when people at least try to look around and learn, but we also recognize that people come from a wide variety of backgrounds, skills, and even languages they understand, so we will also try to be helpful and ask for your patience with us too because we also come from a variety of different places, just like you.
