Re: Forum Standards Relating to Enquiries.

Hi FuzzyJ or should I say Kayman? I read this post and then looked at your outstanding post regarding the KDE notifacations (or lack of them), so having a spare couple of minutes I decided to try and help with your issue by searching Google. I was surprised to find a post on the KDE forum with prett...

Re: TeamViewer or another?

I can not see that TeamViewer will help with the install of SolydX on to our friends PC, you need the operating system to be installed before you can install Teamviewer. If your friend has a 2nd PC\Laptop with a web cam you could install Teamviewer onto that PC\Laptop so that you can see the web cam...

Re: Keeping the operating system updated.

As SolydXK is based on Debian stable then there will be very few updates, security updates mainly from Debian and any adjustment packages that Arjen release's If you run SolydXK EE which is based on Debian Testing then there will be updates on a daily basis. If you install software like Google Chrom...

Two monitor issues

After a very frustrating weekend trying to get my two monitors setup I have now got them working at about 90% correctly, my biggest issue being a faulty DVI lead which would not allow me to set the screen resolution to the correct size, swapped it for a HDMI lead and I now have a 3840x1080 display. ...

Re: USB Creator don't recognize usb stick

While Arjen sorts out the USB Disk Creator you can always create a USB memory stick with the iso installed on it with the following command sudo dd if=~/solydk_9_64_201803.iso of=/dev/sdx bs=64k oflag=dsync status=progress You will need to change the name of the iso in the above code to the name of ...

Re: new install will not boot but

As in my case not, but I don't boot the PC very often so at the end of the day make very little difference .

Still got a couple of jobs to do (processor swap to i7 and a dual monitor setup) which will hopefully add a few more years to the life of my PC

Have a look at the image below: file-listing.jpg On the left is an open file dialogue box in Mousepad, on the right is the same folder as listed in Thunar. The one on the right is how I expect to see both the open file dialogue window and the file listing window. I found the the settings to change t...

Re: new install will not boot but

Unfortunately still not booting into SolydXK

I did have a little play at things but that did not work either but at least I can still get solydxk via the Super Grub Rescue DVD.

I am calling it a night, if I continue you playing with it I will break it.

Thanks for all the help so far
