Re: Cannot Update My System - solved by installing apt-transport-https

Re: Cannot Update My System

The system suggested that I install a package to allow https to be used. After I did that, I was able to update my system from the solydxk.nl repository. I had over 200 updates. All ok now. :)

Re: Notification of Updates

Am I supposed to see something in the tray all the time and it changes color if updates are available, or does it only show when there are updates? As currently, I am not seeing any cogwheel icon in the tray.

Notification of Updates

I do not see an automatic notification when updates are available. Is there something you need to do to turn that on? I have had to check it manually from the terminal. Thanks.

Re: Major Updates today

I finally got things to work. Still cannot figure out what caused these issues with a "normal" update. Including updated kernel. I had gone back to the standard 3.16 kernel a long time ago.

Re: Major Updates today

I'm a little concerned as Synaptic doesn't find respositories after the update.

Re: Looking for backup tool

You might want to look at Systemback. You can create restore points, backups, and system images.

Re: SMTube

Well I removed smplayer, installed the latest SMTube, and setup vlc player to work instead of smplayer and everything works. Who knew? So far so good.

Re: SMTube

Yes. I have been on the official blog and tried everything including installing the latest version. This is not easy to do with solydx as you know. Having said that, I have not been able to get any of the versions to work so far.

[SOLVED] SMTube

Is there a way to use SMTube with Solydx? I have installed the version in the repos and it says it cannot connect to the youtube server. I'd appreciate any ideas. I did try to install the one in Debian backports but it does not work either. Thanks. Jeff

Re: Update Issue

I found an image directory and was able to get the image restored. So far so good. There would appear to be something a little off with the latest update however. Thanks anyway.

Re: Update Issue

I'm using solydx 64 bit on a lenovo x130e. I've been using this for over a year with no issues during updates before. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
