Re: Solydxk installation on ssd

Many thanks Scott.

Some success with this command. However, the operation seems to be limited to /boot. Perhaps on the fresh install there is simply nothing to trim. However, I did try it on another well used system, and similarly, only /boot received the operation. Can you suggest any reasons why?

Re: Missing / black menus?

I have now done a few updates / upgrades, as well as reset my KDE desktop settings completely to the Breeze options. Issue may be a bit better, but there absolutely remains a flakiness in the menu response, even with many of the animation features off. I have seen this sort of issue in a variety of ...

Re: Solydxk installation on ssd

Thanks.

Running the Trim in the terminal produces the same error.

The parameter check does indicate: "Data Set Management TRIM supported (limit 8 blocks)". I see no mention of "discard" in the results.

Is microcode a potential issue?

Re: Solydxk installation on ssd

I have tried the two Trim scripts as recommended, and in each case, get an error message reporting that fstrim: /: the discard operation is not supported . In this case, it is SolydK 9 installed on an SSD. I was under the impression that this script explicitly avoided the DISCARD command in favour o...

Missing / black menus?

Just installed SolydK9 (64) and have noticed that my app and context menus appear empty or black about 50% of the time I reach for them. Moving to another menu and then back, sometimes brings up the missing information, but it does not fix the issue permanently. I have not seen this problem in other...

Version 8 Wallpaper?

Can anyone point me to a download for the previous, version 8 wallpaper for SolydK? Also, I seem to be completely unable to view ANY (as in zero) of the hundreds of image links for wallpaper posted in this Artwork forum. Is there a trick to viewing them or have they all just been broken or removed? ...

Re: "Full" disk encryption install?

Thanks for these insights and the link to the "latest" EE; I was on the release from the regular CE download page and would have otherwise missed the nightlies/weeklies. Indeed, I see the encryption feature bug has now been corrected. I would like to see an "option" such as that available in Fedora'...

Re: "Full" disk encryption install?

I don't think your suggested post really addresses the question ... perhaps I am missing something? That post shows a shot of the Antergos installer, not the Solyd installer. Despite the additional reference to disk encryption being now available in a nightlies, I don't actually see it! Having run t...

"Full" disk encryption install?

I am pleased to find the SolydXK distro and appreciate the nice work that you folks are doing, especially, the thoughtful implementation of KDE Plasma for Debian. I want to try the SolydK EE but would like to install with "full" disk encryption (all but boot). Is there a simple solution to create a ...
