Re: Breakage and News tracker for debian testing [buster]

Thanks. I'll try to find the time for that this weekend. Unfortunately, some unexpected, non computer related issues currently take up most of my time.

Re: Default browser Issue

To be honest, I don't know what useful information that log can provide. I ran some tests and only very few programs show up in there. I simply don't know what to make of it. What I was after was to check whether the xdg-open and exo-open commands obey the default browser setting and apparently they...

Re: Default browser Issue

Strange. I'm starting to wonder whether there is something hardcoded somewhere. I remember we had an override once that hacked one of the system's launch scripts, as launching Firefox the normal way didn't work properly because of a Firefox bug. That was a very long time ago and there should have be...

Re: Default browser Issue

Odd. I just set everything to vivaldi again and it's definitely vivaldi opening Thunar's help link.

What's in the WebBrowser line in your ~/.config/xfce4/helpers.rc file?

Re: Improve on-line privacy of users - Firefox add-ons poll

Done as well. I skipped three. I'm not sure Privacy Badger adds much over uBlock Origin (not sure in the sense I didn't actually check, but seem to remember reading somewhere that uBO already covers it), I prefer to manage cookies myself and blocking CDNs would (probably?) also block CloudFlare, whi...

yep...mimeapps.list is scattered on several places. you should check every one of them to get the desired result Actually, on Xfce you only need to change the settings in the application provided to handle MIME types: xfce4-mime-settings. You can find this in Xfce's Settings window under System. Al...

Received several vlc packages version 3.0.0~rc7-2 yesterday. Keeps one CPU core at 100% all the time when vlc is playing (or even just displaying) My Music.

Re: Second firefox won't open for update

You'd have to have packages that don't conflict with eachother. Doable, but messy. Would it bother you to install the non-ESR Firefox somewhere you don't need root permissions? If you use the tarball provided by Mozilla, you can 'install' the firefox directory anywhere, e.g. in your home directory o...

Re: Breakage and News tracker for debian testing [buster]

That's about the same I get here. I looked at the packages kurotsugi mentioned (gconf-service gconf2 gconf2-common libgconf-2-4 libgnome-keyring-common libgnome-keyring0 libgtop-2.0-11 libgtop2-common) and I don't see any dependency on gksu.

Strange. I've heard that mentioned before, but it never happened to me. I just checked: everything I switched off manually two or three versions ago is still off.

Re: Breakage and News tracker for debian testing [buster]

If you want I can build a solydxk-system without these triggers and upload it to the solydxk-10 repository. Let me know. Maybe we should try that. Edit Never mind. All libc-bin has is interest-await ldconfig So I don't think that's the problem. I don't know why the GUI is not showing. I don't have ...

Re: Breakage and News tracker for debian testing [buster]

The solydxk-system package seems to be permanently 'loopy' these days. I had to (temporarily) remove it as well, to get past that error. Also, I have never been able to get the GUI application to work on my system. Currently, it just flashes a small window on screen and disappears again. No warning/...

As my main system (Haswell chip) is always on, the last microcode update that was implemented was the 20171117 one, mentioned in the second posting in that bug report thread. I'll be keeping it like that for now (and I wish I could be as confident about a quick fix as Henrique de Moraes Holschuh app...

Re: Apt's cli visual style?

The original apt as provided by the Debian package is still available on SolydXK installs as apt.divert. However, on my system (also EE) this does not produce the exact same kind of output as the Ubuntu version.

Re: Help for Grub Customizer glitches

There's a recent thread on the Mint forum with a rather interesting subject line: Is the Grub Customizer a no, no?. Most people there seem to think it is.

The bit on this page, item 6.2.2, says it all.

Re: Some clues about CPU vulnerabilities? Spectre and meltdown

The SA-00086 tool has absolutely nothing to do with Meltdown/Spectre. It's about the Intel Management Engine issue that came up earlier. https://www.wired.com/story/intel-management-engine-vulnerabilities-pcs-servers-iot/ https://hackaday.com/2017/12/11/what-you-need-to-know-about-the-intel-manageme...
