Re: two software manager icons in solydx

Think I got it. I found a softwaremanager.desktop file in my ~/.local/share/applications directory. Moved that out and the duplicate is gone.

Re: totem segfault

Yes, that did the trick. It didn't have any effect until I killed lightdm and ran startx. Is there a way to set it up system wide with lightdm?
thanks much!

Re: totem segfault

I am using totem to review dvd's created by mythtv. I really like the interface. No doubt VLC is great and will work - I just prefer totem for this particular job. One small gripe with vlc is that it won't maintain a 4:3 aspect ratio. I have to set it each time I run it.

Re: two software manager icons in solydx

Thanks for the tip on alacarte.
I can't seem to find the old manager in there though. I see the new one under Settings and System. I see the old one and the new one under All and if I do a search for software. So I still can't figure out how to get rid of the old one.

Re: mythtv and libjpeg62-turbo

Thank zerozero, I managed to purge the dmo packages from deb-multimedia and install the solydxk version on my test machine. All went well, so I repeated on my normal machine. Looking good so far. I was worried that the database got updated and wouldn't be able to use it with the solydxk version, but...

Re: mythtv and libjpeg62-turbo

Oops, guess it was sort of a reflex action after using debian for so long!

So, how do I get the solydx version of mythtv? Can't seem to find it.

thanks.

I checked debian jessie and ...

[SOLVED] laptop brightness

I've got a new install on an older HP 6530b laptop. It has intel graphics and uses the i915 driver. I would like to have the screen brightness stay at 100% when the power cord is plugged in or unplugged. It looks like the screen is getting dimmed to about 80% or so when the power is plugged in or un...

Re: Update manager does not work after upgrade

I added the txt extension so the system would let me upload it. Interesting contents. There are the "live" packages and some other things like wicd that I also purged.

Hope it helps.

I'm loving Solydxk. Got my wife using it on her laptop. Thanks.

Re: Update manager does not work after upgrade

Same thing here. I purged all the "live" packages using aptitude. Things like live-installer, live-boot, live-boot-initramfs. Then rebooted and updatemanager worked again. I don't recall all the "live" packages I had to purge, but I think there were six in total. There are some lib packages with the...
