Re: Waterfox 56.2.12 lost its icon

[...] Mozilla can get really unfriendly about them. The fox is theirs. [...] Yes. I doubt they will make new friends this way. Then perhaps even the "mozicon128.png" name (for the link) is under threat? (Probably not the best choice either: "mozzicone" in Italian means "cigarette butt" :-) ) Anyway...

Re: Waterfox 56.2.12 lost its icon

The icon moved, it's now under /opt/waterfox/browser/chrome/icons/default/ [...] Oh, I see. I didn't look for it there, because there was still that /opt/waterfox/icons/mozicon128.png which is a (broken) link to /opt/waterfox/browser/icons/mozicon128.png. I only tried to restore the link, but obvio...

[Solved] Waterfox 56.2.12 lost its icon

Hi all,

Just a small remark about the latest Waterfox update. I noticed that the icon was gone. Indeed, there's no more /icons folder under /opt/waterfox/browser

This is easily solved by retrieving this /icon folder from the previous deb and putting it back to its place.

BR, Daniel

Re: Slow trackpoint - old solution stopped working

Well, that's it. As an epilogue to this long thread, just a couple of things that I wanted to add: * I made the solution persistent by adding the startup line with xinput, the solution described in my OP that I used before, and which is working again after the removal of xserver-xorg-input-libinput....

Re: Slow trackpoint - old solution stopped working

I'm coming to report some success: [...]Try that change in 11-solydxk-evdev-trackpoint.conf. I did, but that alone did not suffice. If that doesn't help you'll have to find out how to move from libinput to evdev. [...] That may well be the key to a solution. After some searching I came across this t...

Re: Slow trackpoint - old solution stopped working

To get the libinput commands working you need to install libinput-tools. Sorry, I won't be able to post this comparison, because AFAICT there is (was) no libinput-tools package in Jessie. Below I'm posting the differences between the outputs of the other commands (compared in Meld). [...] Please co...

Re: Slow trackpoint - old solution stopped working

I can see in /boot/config-4.9.0.9-amd64 that the stretch kernel is build with CONFIG_MOUSE_PS2_ALPS=y. Every kernel I have is. I can't find any other relevant kernel parameter. So I don't think kernel compilation will get you anywhere. And it's not about every ALPS device. My secondary laptop is a ...

Re: Slow trackpoint - old solution stopped working

Well, not looking good. 1) Gnome does have (org/gnome/desktop/peripherals/mouse) a speed setting. It can be set (like the xinput property) between 0 and 1. Both those settings (Gnome and xinput) ignore each other , and have no effect. 2) xorg.conf.d. I made a custom file and tested both options: wit...

Re: Slow trackpoint - old solution stopped working

Did you try to use "Settings --> Mouse and Touchpad"? You can select your device and set acceleration there - nothing much more though. Stop here if that helps. I already tried the settings for 'PS/2 generic mouse' (recall that's how the ALPS trackpoint is recognized). But neither parameter (accele...

Re: Slow trackpoint - old solution stopped working

Thanks for helping Ilu, I don't think "Device Accel Profile" is meant to set speed. It selects a profile with that number. I definitely agree that "6" is a profile n° rather than a speed value. And this profile number doesn't seem to exist anymore. The profile needs to be defined somewhere - which i...

[Solved] Slow trackpoint - old solution stopped working

Hello all, My main laptop is a fairly old Dell Precision M6400. It has an ALPS trackpoint (what an idea...) which is not recognized as a trackpoint. That makes it unbearably slow (really, virtually useless). I used to apply this workaround . I made a startup app with this command line: xinput set-pr...

Re: pkexec fails to launch apps as root

Just FYI, either on the PC at work (just updated straight from solydxk-system 3.3.0 to 3.3.5) or on my 2nd home laptop... Reverting back and I get these problems in SolydX 10: gedibi doesn't work from within Thunar. ... I don't have any error with gdebi, either standalone or from Thunar (or even fro...

Re: pkexec fails to launch apps as root

Same thing here, back to normal with v. 3.3.5. Thanks.

FWIW, I had found that only 4 apps listed in the System menu wanted authentication before starting: Synaptic and Gparted of course, along with LightDM settings and SolydXK system settings. BR, Daniel

Re: pkexec fails to launch apps as root

I took the time to double-check everything this time, on both my home PCs for good measure. Both are back to normal, though for different reasons: 1st PC (main PC): after updating solydxk-system to version 3.3.4, the launchers resumed working straightforwardly. (Oddly enough, on this PC, the dpkg -S...

Re: pkexec fails to launch apps as root

Humm, I spoke too fast. I was testing from command line as super-user... Without that: $ pkexec gparted pkexec must be setuid root and of course sudo pkexec gparted (or sudo gparted-pkexec ) works. Moreover, $ dpkg -S /usr/bin/pkexec détournement par solydxk-system depuis : /usr/bin/pkexec détournem...

Re: pkexec fails to launch apps as root

Confirmed! With solydxk-system version 3.3.3, gparted and other apps using pkexec now start normally again.

Many thanks for your help. BR, Daniel

Re: pkexec fails to launch apps as root

Small update: I'm now in front of the desktop PC at work. The pkexec programs work well here (Synaptic, Gparted...) But this PC has not received these 3 latest updates yet: - wpasupplicant-2:2.4-1+deb9u4 - solydxk-system-3.3.2 - solydxk-welcome-1.7.0 Otherwise, the set of installed packages is prett...

Re: pkexec fails to launch apps as root

Hi, thanks for replying so quickly. The 1st and 3rd commands yield the very same output as yours. The 2nd one, however, gives a slightly different result: $ dpkg -S /usr/bin/pkexec détournement par solydxk-system depuis : /usr/bin/pkexec détournement par solydxk-system en : /usr/bin/pkexec.divert po...

pkexec fails to launch apps as root

Hi all, I think that something has gone slightly wrong with a recent update, though I can't tell you which one right now, (I have another PC at work which lags a little behind on updates, so maybe I could be more precise tomorrow.) I noticed --just today-- that all my launchers which run programs as...
