Re: Easy way to get xfce on SolydK

if you're using lightdm IIRC you can choose which DE you would use at login screen. you can also configure which DE as default on lightdm. the same with GDM and other login manager. though, I don't know whether if the one used on solydK support this feature or not. one user could have multiple DE wi...

Re: How to save panels before upgrading to SoydX-9

if you're doing a direct update (i.e: no reinstall). you didn't need to save the config files. the prefered way is having separated /home partition so that you didn't have to reconfigure everything on update/reinstall.

Re: Improve on-line privacy of users

btw, regarding blockers. some blockers did block ads and trackers but at the same time they collect some data from the user. they later sold the data to 3rd parties (ad makers). they claimed that the data isn't unique and no one could trace it to the user. to be fair, user could disable the data col...

Re: Improve on-line privacy of users

we marketed ourself as "easy to use, better OOTB linux experience". IMO we should keep the addon minimum and focus on things which doesn't affect system functionality. ublock, https everywhere seems OK but something like NoScript will affect system functionality and potentially made the us...

Re: Default browser Issue

IIRC that one is regulated by mimeaps.list. you can right click the link > open with other application > pick the browser. next time you open that link it should be opened with that browser.

Re: Default browser Issue

update-alternative is the name of program to manage the content of /etc/alternatives automatically. you can use it as "update-alternative --config x-www-browser" to change the default browser.

Re: Default browser Issue

I believe the correct way to edit the default driver is with update-alternative. you can use the software or manually edit the link on /etc/alternative.

Re: Improve on-line privacy of users

webrtc relies on the media connection mode. I believe the peer connection mode is actually made for privacy concern because the media would be streamed between two computers and not relied on servers. as for the IP leaks, it should be fixed. I did the test and there's no leaks detected. Screenshot_2...

Re: Browser alternatives to replace firefox - palemoon, waterfox?

Code: Select all

// Disable WebRTC
user_pref("media.peerconnection.enabled", false);

I think this one doesn't pose any threat and should be enabled :3

Re: Second firefox won't open for update

I wouldn't want it to look into my user directory - opening all my open tabs with sudo would not be save. I will just delete the .mozilla file and update as I always did. AFAIK the risk is same. in fact, I believe you already did it on jessie numerous time when you update firefox. remember that you...

Re: Second firefox won't open for update

slightly out of topic but it could be used as solution : I thought something started with sudo will take a look into user directory instead of root directory. is this behaviour configureable?

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

yep. those but packages didn't depend on gksu but rather gksu depends on them. those packages are marked as "automatic" so that when nothing depends on them, aptitude will try to remove them. well...since something else still depends on them on solydxk, I think we have no worries about sol...

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

it could be because I disabled recommended install on apt. I also didn't have either solydxk-system nor adjustment. it seems to me that the second terminal result is caused by solydxk-system dependency. it depends on either gksu or kdesudo. since it couldn't find gksu, it tries to install kdesudo an...

Re: Browser alternatives to replace firefox

For some time now I'm researching possibilities to replace firefox as my main web browser. I disagree not only on Mozilla's design decisions but mainly on their lack of respect for privacy.
can you elaborate this part?
