Re: Firefox/waterfox and DoH - what default to choose?

Switched it on just now.

What about "Stubby", which is also mentioned on the a Applied Privacy page? There's a package for buster.

Re: SolydXK 10 Preview and Testing

No full test reports yet, but I tried the live ISOs in a VBox VM and on USB (legacy hardware). No issues so far, neither booting nor checking the integrity of the medium. To write the ISOs to USB sticks, I used the last version of UNetbootin that was available in Debian before it was removed (608-1)...

Re: Executing Kate with sudo is not possible due to unfixable security vulnerabilities

That's no longer applicable. The diversion of pkexec has been removed.

Apparently kate doesn't have a policy file either...

Re: pkexec fails to launch apps as root

Looks like that would work, yes. Curious that mousepad doesn't have a polkit file of its own. Thunar has a context menu entry "open editor as root", so I would have expected some mechanism to handle that. I don't use thunar or mousepad, so I have never come across these issues and simply assumed it ...

Re: pkexec fails to launch apps as root

The mousepad issue looks like the usual display/xauthority problem. And gdebi - in the first thread about that issue, I mentioned finding something that looked like a solution, but I wasn't sure how to implement it: https://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.php?f=78&t=7531#p70113 Is there any way to make...

This is not my day...now the repository is acting up.

Could you try again?
Yup. Working again. Thanks.

Thanks. i was already looking for a way to 'tactfully' tell you diverting pkexec was a bad idea... :lol: Seriously though, I think using an action definition file with the proper '...exec.allow_gui' line is a better solution, even if the polkit docs say this should be discouraged and only used for l...

The 1st and 3rd commands yield the very same output as yours. The 2nd one, however, gives a slightly different result: Same here. And the same problem with GParted.

Re: problem with gdebi (SolydX, ee)

I've uploaded the adapte gdebi and gdebi-core packages to the solydxk-10 (solydxk-ee) repository. You should never increase the upstream version number of a package if you create a local derivative. Doing so effectively blocks any possible 'real' incarnation of that version. While there's little ch...

Re: problem with gdebi (SolydX, ee)

Something like that, yes. It must be a thunar issue somehow, as caja manages to do it properly. This is similar: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/49214954/gdebi-refusing-to-render-service-to-dead-parents I see the same error message in .xsession-errors. It's explained here: https://askubuntu.com/...

Re: orphaned programs ...

Whenever a package disappears, I usually check the package tracker: https://tracker.debian.org/ The information is behind the links in the 'news' section, but sometimes you have to 'dig' a bit before you find the actual reason for the removal. In the case of glipper, you end up here: https://bugs.de...

Doesn't look like it's actively maintained. Look at all the open bugs ... :( Also, all updates since November 2016 were nmus (non-maintainer updates). That's never a good sign. On top of that, the maintainers use an e-mail address on a server which has been decommissioned in June last year (alioth.d...

As mentioned on the blog page, the hotfix does not work for the ESR. It looks like the only option is to wait for Mozilla to release the real fix.

Re: Community ISO maintenance and build issues - 2

The source package nvidia-graphics-drivers in buster no longer provides the binary package nvidia-detect for 32-bit systems. This was to be expected (https://tweakers.net/nieuws/133243/nvidia-stopt-met-ondersteuning-drivers-voor-32bit-besturingssystemen.html (in dutch) - https://nvidia.custhelp.com/...

Re: Solydxk-system hangs indefinitely on the orange splash screen

Wouldn't grub-mount (https://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manua ... mount.html) be useful here? True read-only mount, no root necessary if the destination has the right owner (except for unmounting, apparently).

Re: Community ISO maintenance and build issues - 2

Shouldn't that be:

Code: Select all

deb https://repository.solydxk.com solydxk-ee main upstream import
or

Code: Select all

deb https://repository.solydxk.com solydxk-ee main upstream import testing
for EEs, depending on whether or not the solydxk testing component is used?
