Re: Thunar can't handle the load

so far gvfs is the best way to handle mtp connection. AFAIK it works seamlessly with every file manager so that is a huge bonus. that being said, mtp is still a pain to working with. it is slow and buggy. if you have a wifi connection at home, I'd suggest using ftp to connect your phone. I'm using m...

firefox is broken. master password is lost along with all saved password upon migration to quantum esr. after you upgrade your firefox, change your master password to avoid losing any data

Re: Google inc to Google llc error

you can try to reset it. comment on that repo entry, run "sudo apt update", re-add/uncomment the repo entry, run "sudo apt update" once more.

Re: Remove xserver-xorg-legacy

I hope I didn't create misunderstanding. what I want to say is that either "package A have a security issue" or "only a few user use package A" are not and should not be used as a reason to remova a package from our system. as for xserver-xorg-legacy, the security issue is have been resolved so it's...

Re: Remove xserver-xorg-legacy

the package is needed for hardware compatibility so we still need it. on top of that the bug is already fixed. please correct me if i'm wrong, currently there's no valid reason for removing it. as a distro developer we want our beloved linux works on every hardware out there. we should never remove ...

yes. in my experience liquorix kernel works better but using backport is easier.

Re: Jumping in EE wagon !

the most common mistake is a misconfigured repo setting, which will ended with mixed stable-testing system. the safest approach would be keeping the repo with default priority and let apt do the job. solydxk actually doesn't need higher priority since it's a standalone repo. fixing such a mixed syst...

Re: [solved ... and then not !!!] kworker is killing my machine again ...

you can replace the sysctl value of vm.dirty_writeback_centisecs with 10000. using sysctl and echo command gives the same result. it seems that the problem is more related to mem management. I think you can safely re-enable pstate driver

Re: Jumping in EE wagon !

the main reason would be because the migration route isn't ready yet. the best time for migration would be during freeze period. any migration attempt outside the freeze period will have relatively high breakage risk. that's why our recommended way to get into EE is either using the EE iso or solyd-...

Re: [solved ... and then not !!!] kworker is killing my machine again ...

The beast lives. Suddenly, since yesterday, I have the same symptoms again. Real bad. I had just reinstalled my system (4 or 5 days ago), but I don't think it is related. actually...it is related. the devil lurks deep in the kernel. the tracker said that we have kernel v 4.9.130 in the repo. I'd su...

I'd start with tweaking my network setting. IIRC some vpn server need custom sysctl configuration. for detailed information you might have to ask the service provider.

Re: Really large .xsession-errors

The script creates the log from scratch on every boot session. I believe this part is intended. exec >>"$ERRFILE" 2>&1 all the message will appended into the logs so that you could easily found the issue. the caveat would be, the logs will grow big if you have repeated error message. though, since t...

Re: Really large .xsession-errors

as a workaround you can use a shell script as a cron job. I can't duplicate the issue so I'm not sure what happened. on my system the logs got rewritten every boot. IIRC there was similar issue in the past. I'll try to investigate my system further.

Re: Installing new theme

it either the theme doesn't contain the correct theme or you put wrong files in .theme. the folder should contain the theme folder while the the folder should contain the correct theme (i.e: for xfce you'll need gtk2-0, gtk3-0, xfwm, xfce4-notify, etc. ).

Re: shim boot loader

grub2-signed seems will never exist. the shim will act as middle man between the bios and the actual bootloader (grub). since debian doesn't support it yet, nothing much we can do except wait until it officially supported. though, since it will replace grub's boot entry part, I don't know how will w...
