Re: Tidy up my boot

Well I can report that moving the three folders has not affected the system and when I booted with the grub rescue cd there was only the one distro (SolydX EE) listed.

Re: Tidy up my boot

Thanks Kurotsugi, it was not a space issue, just a little disconcerting when you know you have removed those distro and then you boot from the grub rescue disk and you see them all listed when you search for installed distros. I will look at deleting them later and then boot from the rescue disk and...

[Solved] Tidy up my boot

I had a problem booting my PC earlier and I used the grub rescue disk to help resolve the issue and everything is now booting. But what I noticed when I used the grub rescue disk it showed a few distros I had tried in the past and have since deleted. If I look in: mit@andora:/boot/efi/EFI$ ls BOOT k...

Re: Power Manager issues

I don't know if the issue was with my PC or I just did not know how to do it properly, but how do you get your PC out of suspended mode?

Everytime my PC went into suspended mode I had to reboot the PC, know amount of keyboard tapping singularly or in combination would bring the PC back to life.

Re: Power Manager issues

As you can see (attached image), Put to sleep after is set to never Are you saying that the option "switch off after" should be set to X minutes? I took this to mean switch the PC off, but are you saying that it means switch the monitor off? (for the record I have set it to five minutes so hopefully...

Re: Power Manager issues

Grizzler I don't have a screensaver, there was a discussion about xscreensaver on the forum about a year ago about how old the package was (has it been updated or is there another option?) and from that point on I stopped using it and just set Power Management to blank the monitor after X minutes. ...

Re: Power Manager issues

I am not sure why I have no solydxk-system as I simply did a normal install, I assume it is part of the normal install? Where can I download it from? I will keep the file but just remove all entries and see how we get on with that.

Re: Power Manager issues

Thanks for the explanation Kurotsugi, reading your post I suddenly remembered GDM & KDM to name but two other desktop managers. I guess at the end of the day I could change to another Display manger (https://wiki.debian.org/DisplayManager) but at the moment I thing that is a bit drastic. Arjen, is i...

Re: Thunderbird profile questions (and maybe Firefox as well)

Well none of Arjen suggestions worked. It used to work perfectly at one time. It has only become a problem for me as I have been receiving lots of email (about 50 a day) which required me to click on one or more links. But as this has now come to a halt I think can accept that I either have to manua...

Power Manager issues

Sometime ago I stopped using xscreensaver and swapped to putting the monitor to sleep after about 15 minutes (it always varied when I set it up or adjusted it, between 10 and 15 but never 13 minutes). At first this worked perfectly turning the monitor off and then coming back to life when I hit the ...
