MX tools for Debian and Q4OS

A great set of tools from MX Linux is now available for Q4OS users. Just download and run the appropriate installer for your desktop environment, see below.

Please consider this compilation of MX tools for Debian as a testing attempt so far, so it may not work as expected in all cases. Testing and reporting is highly appreciated.

Installer for Q4OS download locations:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/q4os/f … ntal_apps/
or:
https://github.com/q4os-installers/mx-t … /v3.1.1-a1


Alternatively, you can use the "qrepoadd" tool to add the "mx-tools" repository, see https://www.q4os.org/dqa007.html#extrepo , and then run:
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install q4os-mxtools-plasma
or
$ sudo apt install q4os-mxtools-trinity


Plasma:

Trinity:

Steps to follow for a plain Debian Buster or a derivative:
$ echo 'deb http://q4os.org/qextrepo/ buster-mx-cn main' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/q4os-mxtools.list
$ wget -nv -O- http://q4os.org/qextrepo/q4a-q4os.gpg.pub | sudo apt-key add -
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install at-spi2-core libgtk3-perl filelight flatpak advert-block-antix antix-libs apt-mx apt-notifier bash-config checkaptgpg chroot-rescue-mx cli-aptix cli-installer-antix cli-shell-utils conky-manager conky-toggle-mx ddm-mx desktop-defaults-mx-applications desktop-defaults-mx-common foliate formatusb grub-themes-mx isomount live-kernel-updater live-usb-maker localize-repo-mx mx19-artwork mx-boot-options mx-bootrepair mx-cleanup mx-codecs mx-conky mx-datetime mx-docs mx-goodies mx-gpg-keys mx-idevice-mounter mx-live-usb-maker mx-network-assistant mx-packageinstaller mx-packageinstaller-pkglist mx-pkexec mx-remaster mx-remastercc mx-repo-manager mx-select-sound mx-snapshot mx-sound-theme-borealis mx-sound-theme-fresh-and-clean mx-system mx-system-sounds mx-tools mx-tweak mx-tweak-data mx-user mx-viewer partition-info

In addition for Plasma desktop:
$ sudo apt install debconf-kde-helper polkit-kde-agent-1 papirus-icon-theme kde-servicemenu-checkhash-installdebs kde-servicemenu-extract-and-compress kde-servicemenu-kim4 kde-servicemenu-rootactions kde-thumbnailer-epub mx-apps-kde mx-system-kde plasma-look-and-feel-theme-mx

Re: MX tools for Debian and Q4OS

Thanks guys - will test.

Don't forget - if you are using plain Debian or derivative you will need to run

wget -nv -O- http://q4os.org/qextrepo/q4a-q4os.gpg.pub | sudo apt-key add - 

to import the gpg key.

UPDATE:-

Fails as it depends on q4os-desktop and none of the recommends are installable

Debian Buster + LXDE

Re: MX tools for Debian and Q4OS

As a Portuguese translator for MX-Linux and antiX I couldn't be happier to see this tool also available on Q4OS.

Thanks Q4OS team.
