Re: Browser alternatives to replace firefox

can you elaborate this part? Just my 2 cents. Mozilla is getting tons of money from globalists in exchange of some features. This means politics had poisoned the well. Because these guys are anti free speech and Marxists, to trust in Mozilla at this point is naive. Some of many red pills: ----> htt...

Re: Please replace ESR by Firefox standard

I prefer ESR all the way.
New versions of Firefox used to break my addons.
Also, I really distrust the people behind it because the funding $$$ might be attached to new features with not the final user's interest in mind.
Time will tell if this is correct, meantime it is better to be cautious.

Re: Encryption wanted

Sorry, I forgot that I installed it from a private repository. That is the reason I see it in the Software Manager. https://t9.pixhost.org/thumbs/208/38891690_veracrypt-in-sk.png If there is somebody interested, the url of the deb file I have installed is http://mxrepo.com/mx/repo/pool/main/v/veracr...

Re: Encryption wanted

Using the Software Manager install "Veracrypt".
It will create a encrypted container where you can store your folders and files.

This is mine.
It is not so creative as many shown above, but I like simplicity and a good contrast.

Re: One step further

Just my two cents about the theme. By default this distribution looks unbearable, and it is because of a low contrast with icons, text, and the theme itself. However on the side of reliability is 110% solid rock. And of course I have been tinkering with the theme. https://t8.pixhost.org/thumbs/1387/...

Re: VLC hangs on exit

I recommend that you change your VLC preferences so that the option "Use only one instance when started from the file manager" is also checked. This made the trick. :clap: By the way, I really appreciate your explanation about zombie processes; my understanding of them were quite fuzzy. Thank you s...

Re: VLC hangs on exit

docke: I don't understand why you are running multiple instances of VLC. Do you actually want to watch two videos simultaneously? I believe there is a misunderstanding. I do have enabled in the "Preferences" dialog the option to run multiples instances, and I use this choice rarely for comparative ...

Multiples instances are enabled, but the problem shows up when I reutilize the same instance to play another video. I mean; without to exit VLC I click on other video in Dolphin, then this new video plays as expected. However, two icons of VLC appears on the task bar plus two process in the system m...

[Solved] VLC hangs on exit

Hello. The VLC process sometimes refuses to exit and keeps running with 100% of the dedicated CPU core. This behavior is not new. It keeps happening since the first time I installed SolydK a year ago, and in two different machines. I was looking in the forum for a similar post, but I failed to find ...

Re: StartPage search engine

It is not my intention to stir the nest. But at this time to trust your privacy to any occidental search engine or cloud is beyond naive. And if all States are keeping tabs of the inhabitants internet habits, it is far more advisable to use a search engine (when is possible) from those that cannot t...

I totally agree.
And by the same logic, it is worth to mention that Bulgaria is member of a gang called NATO. :lol:

Also the right click on it does not work, then, there is no GUI available. Updating to versions 2.7.7 and 2.7.8 did not fix the problem. Is the...
