Re: [Solved] How to install Libreoffice 6.1 from debian backports

I'm not convinced why it would be necessary for a distribution like SolydXK, which focuses on security and stability, to introduce a security risk. Till, a user on a blog describes my reservations very well: http://www.proli.net/2016/06/25/gnulinu ... ent-118611

Re: [Help] Resize EFI Partition

For the live installer (without the -p parameter) an EFI partition must be 100MB or more which is also recommended by Microsoft.

Re: Gnome Disks at SolydX

Two things to consider: GParted is integrated in the Live Installer. So, changing that with Gnome Disks is out of the question, especially because of the next remark. I see that if you want anything other than ext4, ntfs or fat, you'll need to write the filesystem manually (you need to know the exac...

Re: Thunderbird 60.0 : can't get to send Thunderbird in the tray

Since yesterday I'm using MinimizeToTray Reanimated (grizzler's third url) and that works ok for Thunderbird 60. However, there is no indication of unread messages, just a clickable icon in the tray. According to the author this addon's future is incertain. The legacy code is difficult to read by ot...

Re: Thunar custom action broken

Thanks and welcome back!

I've updated the solydx-system-adjustments-9 and -10 packages.
I've changed the command to "font-manager %f" but unfortunately, that will only help new users because the uca.xml file is located in /etc/skel.

Re: [Help] Resize EFI Partition

Check the terminal output.

Re: [Help] Resize EFI Partition

I've updated the live installer so that you can install SolydXK without changing the partition layout. Run a live session and open a terminal: apt update apt install live-installer-3 live-installer-3 -p You can now install with a smaller /boot or /boot/efi partition. The -p (--nopartitioncheck) para...

Re: VirtBox USB support needs the user to be in the vboxusers group

1. Please do not remove Midnight Commander but readd mc. Midnight commander is extremely useful if for some reason you have to use the (rescue) console. It's really small and adds a lot of comfort, so why not? MC was never part of the official releases, only of the EEs. I used Frank's ISOs to build...

Re: VirtBox USB support needs the user to be in the vboxusers group

I could add that in the live installer. The live installer is adding the vboxsf group. What's that for if not the same as vboxusers? mc-data is a remnant of a purge a long time ago. It shouldn't be there and it will be removed in the next ISOs. htop is a good idea. I'll add it in the next ISOs. [EDI...

I've just uploaded an updated version of the live installer. It seems that the live session is mounted on /run/live/medium instead of /lib/live/mount/medium when running on a non-UEFI system (but only in Buster). The installer couldn't find some important files. I leave it up to you if you want to b...
