Re: People don't like Open Source/Linux due Android Viruses!

I was having a FaceBook conversation with someone who posted this link: http://mashable.com/2015/02/19/android-malware-spies-shut-down/ This friend said that it's why he doesn't like Android because it's 'Open Source' as he puts it. Another one commented that they now hate Linux. Very sad! I wonder...

For example, when I stopped the mouse over a picture file within some seconds a priview of teh picture appeared beside it. When I stopped the mouse over an audio...

When those are installed I only get partial support. I can copy items off, but not to. And it treats the phone as a camera. With Kio-Mtp it supports it as a read-write file system.

Well try both alone, rather than together, and let us know which of the two works best, if at all, for you.

Thanks for all the recommends :) I'll give them a shot! As for prozac...sadly I've been on most of them and prozac is the first one that has any sort of positive effect aside from the insomnia.

Install kio-mtp on SolydK default install

Just a recommendation. I've found that mtp devices such as android phones will not work properly in kde without this library installed, and it isn't installed by default.

Re: Plymouth should be disabled by default

Agreed. I mean give an option for it during install still, perhaps, but default it to off, and maybe note issues. Plymouth has always had issues on raw debian systems. While it is pretty, it just seems to cause issues. That being said, these issues are present on distros like Fedora and Ubuntu right...

Re: Finn's Tweak Script

Updated it as I've made a lot of changes. Still simplistic as I can make it, yet should be powerful enough. Includes some extra stuff others may want to remove before running (purging playonlinux for example).

There are plans to launch a 32 bit version? They'll be community based, but I believe Grizzler is one of those currently working on it. Last I heard there were some issues with Plymouth and a few other things holding it back. http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=5241 Here's the thread on it.

This program

is a java-based frontend to the ffmpeg screen recording tools, and works better than most of the others I've run into. It does require java runtime and the installation of libav-tools, however.
