    • NZ is on my bucket list due to its topography and lack of native killer snakes,spiders etc etc. 😎    
    • I installed MX-19 to a usb on Sunday with the intention of keeping it as my backup get me out of trouble tool. The  persistence set up is very easy and most useful and am impressed with MX's latest offering.Have set it up to run from ram and only tried it on my ToughBook which has 4 GB of memory,an older ssd, and an older cpu " Intel Core2 Duo T7300" ,it runs pretty sweetly if a tad sedately. I bet it flies along on my main rig.   Looks to be an even better offering from the MX team than the 18 version which was bomb proof in my experience. 😎   P.S. apologies  for the hijack.
    • /usr/bin/ should be in your PATH, so the simple way should work: $ opera Try that in a terminal. If it opens that should be all you need in your launcher.   PS. MX can be run live from CD/USB. It even has an advanced persistence utility which will set up a USB flash drive to retain all you changes and data.  You can use that every day instead of installing to HD. And MX-19 is out now! I have it installed and it's quite good. Got a glowing review at DistroWatch - https://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue=20191104#mx   PPS. MX has Opera in the MX Package Installer.
    • New Zealanders love their weird birbs (that's how they spell it colloquially). The fact we call their people "Kiwis" speaks volumes. NZ has a North Island and a South Island. Affectionately, Australia is known as West Island.
    • I should probably try MX 18 again. I forget if it can be previewed in 'live session' or not...   Clutter
