Re: Important SolydXK news

As of today I'm taking a step back in the production of SolydXK. My family and I have come to the conclusion that some things are going to have to change. This means I cannot continue with SolydXK in the current form. Arjen, I think it would be beneficial to all of us if you could write a few words...

Re: Important SolydXK news

Thanks for the wonderful work you've done so far and thank you for not giving up entirely. SolydK is the best distro I've ever used. Looking forward to the new jessie stable era.

Re: The new SolydXK - Q+A

I've looked around a lot and I have experimented with at another 5 flavours of linux, but I keep coming back to SolydX (+kwin) for a working, fast and stable box for my home business. Thank you for this. Following Jessie stable + SolydX tested backports sounds like a very appealing idea. Keep up the...

Re: Update manager won't update security updates

It seemed to be ok for a few days, not again I get the "updates available" icon, but nothing is updated after I run the update manager. Nothing is updated when I run "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade", either.

Any ideas?

Re: MATE Desktop in SolydX repos

I only see mate-desktop and mate-desktop-common in synaptic. Maybe the rest is not in solydxk repos yet. I wish they also had mintmenu and the control panel that mint has... Not yet .... But, it's in SolydXK Testing right now and it's a simple install - basically just one command: apt install mate-...

[SOLVED] Update manager won't update security updates

Hello, I have noticed that the Update Manager will show that there are updates available, but when I run it it will say that the system is up to date. Then, when I do a dist-upgrade from the terminal, I get the new versions of firefox, openssl and thunderbird. After I upgrade, the Update Manager sto...

Re: Cannot create new VPN connection

I didn't have any problems adding a VPN connection. Make sure you have these installed: sudo apt-get install libnm-glib-vpn1 network-manager-openvpn network-manager-vpnc openvpn vpnc Not sure what changed. I had already installed the packages you mention. I tried again to add a VPN and it worked. M...

Re: CDROM issues

I use SolydX and my cdrom is not recognized.
rc.local contains the line mentioned, but still, when I insert a disk it spins a little and then nothing happens.
Any ideas?

Re: MATE Desktop in SolydX repos

Funny thing is, after beautifying XFCE with Zukitwo theme, Faenza icons, desktop and app fonts, enabling the composite manager and installing cairo-dock, I do not miss MATE at all - not even the Mint version with MintMenu. Cinnamon... hmmm... almost.

Re: MATE Desktop in SolydX repos

Does that mean Cinnamon might be in the repos one day? I am not a SolydX developer, but if I have understood correctly, it would appear inevitable for Cinnamon to be in SolydXK's repos with a future UP, once Cinnamon becomes packaged in Debian Testing. The team's focus will not be to provide a work...

Re: MATE Desktop in SolydX repos

Maybe I am missing the point here but what is the advantage of Solyd with the MATE DE? SolydXK currently supports the XFCE and KDE DE's as these are no longer available with a Mint base. However, LMDE MATE is alive and well and provides an excellent semi-rolling distro based on Debian Testing. As t...

Re: MATE Desktop in SolydX repos

@fleabus: I agree with you, up until version 1.8 Cinnamon was almost unusable - heavy and freeze-prone. That's how I developed a liking towards MATE. With time, it became more than just a rescue boat for Gnome 2.30 fans. However, now with version 2.0 Cinnamon really shines. But I had already come to...
