Re: Hello from rural USA

@xendistar: How is Summer in Bournemouth? Height of the tourist season, I'd guess. Motor traffic gets brutal? We get some tourist traffic here in the summer, but not like Bournemouth, I'm guessing.

Re: Hello from rural USA

Welcome Silverfox, I remember you from my Mepis day, think you will like SolydXK, it just works. I am the opposite to you preferring XFCE for its simple simplicity and speed, I fell out of love with KDE with the advent of version4. Well it is bed time for me, another hot sweaty night in the south of...

Ah, so it was one of the packages I mentioned... 8-)

Do you use midi? If you don't, there's very little chance you'll miss having timidity installed.
I think there is a game that might use it but I am happy to go without until a updated version of Timidty comes out

Re: Silence maybe golden but it is not what I want!!

Thanks to Senernity on the Debian forum the issue has been solved. Well it seems I have my answer, it's a *bug in TiMidity of all things. The new version takes control of the sound chip before PulseAudio can, effectively locking it out. So I used "systemctl stop timidity" followed by "pulseaudio -k"...

Also where can I find the latest EE Iso file as I want to boot this PC from a boot disk and run a couple of commands and check out a couple of config files to see what I have and what a fresh install file looks like?

Re: SolydX evince pdf viewer won't save preferences

That maybe the case (and I don't wish to enter a debate regarding open source v other sources), but it works for me and it is there for other to make their own decision.

Re: SolydX evince pdf viewer won't save preferences

I found Foxit do a linux version of its pdf reader, unfortunately it is not in the repos but I installed it. Unfortunately it does not seem to follow the installed theme but it does seem to function (at least for what I want it to do) which I guess is more important. https://www.foxitsoftware.com/do...

Something for the kids

Found Xpenguins today, never seen or heard about them before. For those of you with young kids (or Grandkids), this should keep them quiet for a few minutes at least.

Thought I would post an update on this issue as it has become more prominent at the moment (have lots of web links to open from email).
