Re: LXQt 0.11.1 x64

Regarding "remove file or folder via Delete button from non Linux partition" (gvfs-trash command) - it is because you are guest and your partition owner is root. If you mount it as guest moving files to Trash should work. My ntfs partition is mounted at boot time and I can't change its owner without...

Re: Firefox always up to date (autd) - i686 & x86_64

My way to keep firefox module up to date (especially for those who don't use changes= cheatcode). If you: 1. use firefox module, 2. you have enabled updates in firefox preferences and 3. user has permissions to write firefox updates (e.g. /opt/firefox-esr), then firefox module can be automatically ...
