Re: Group SolydXK on Telegram

Once there was an IRC Channel, but due to lack of interest it was closed down. With regard to Telegram, why should an open source project organize it's communication via closed source platform? In principle I would welcome some kind of communication platform besides the forum. So people, if you are ...

Re: Search engine alternatives to startpage

Hi ilu, thank you for the comprehensive description of the search universe for freedom loving users. Can I assume that you didn't mention the Yacy project, because you assume that it is either too complicated to be set up or is not developed properly anymore? How would you like to methodically test ...

Re: Browser (*fox) customization development

I have removed Startpage as the default search engine from all firefox installations and moved them over to a searx instance (it's not Honigdachse :)] to those interested in the topic, have a look at Martin Brinkmann's of ghacks.net take on the matter https://www.ghacks.net/2019/11/16/startpage-sear...

Re: How to copy Firefox-esr bookmarks to another OS

Hello,

go to "Manage Booksmarks" or open it with "CTRL-Shift-O".

On the right hand upper side you will see a drop down
menue called "Import and Save", which will allow you
to export and import bookmarks.

hope this helps

Re: Connect iphone with SolydX

Hi Ilu,

I had the same problem supporting some friends
and my solution was, to make use of the
IDevice Connector Packages which are part
of MX-Linux distribution tools and install
them on SolydX.

AFAIK works like a charme :-)

Re: Menu Libre - Games section does not appear

I'm not sure what exactly your problem is. The xfce menu is whiskermenu. Menulibre is an editor for whiskermenu. So "games" doesn't show up in whiskermenu? Or you can't edit "games" in menulibre? for for clarification: "games section" does not appear in whiskermenu while at the same time I can see ...
