Re: Password manager

I've tried various password managers, and the best one IMO is Enpass.

Re: SolydK9 32-bit slow

Do I detect a slight hint of buntuphobia there ilu.
Nothing wrong with testing out other flavours. And Xubuntu & Lubuntu are excellent distros.
Pure Debian xfce & lxde are good, but hard work to set up properly. Hence the Lubuntu suggestion.

Re: SolydK9 32-bit slow

I think your Notebook is a bit old to be running any modern operating system. Particularly KDE. You might get more mileage from SolydX.
Failing that I would try something like Lubuntu.

Re: SolydK9 32-bit slow

Giving us the specs of your notebook might help, particularly the graphics card. Granted the boot up time isn't the quickest, mine is about 20s, but once on the desktop I have to say that Solyxk 9 is possibly one of the fastest OSs I've ever used, & my desktop is 6 years old with only an i3 processo...

Re: Installation and disk partitioning (dual boot with win10)

That is a complex disk setup. It looks to me like all 4 primary partitions are being used. Unfortunately some manufacturers have been known to do this to stop you installing anything else. I had a similar set up on my HP Desktop. My only way around it was to totally wipe my disk, & create one NTFS P...

Re: Volume Control Issue (solved)

Just to add a bit more info to this.
The suggestion made by Kurotsugi, to just change flat-volumes to no, in /etc/pulse/daemon.conf, does indeed work, but a hard shut-down, rather than a reboot is needed on my system to make it take effect.
This may help others with the same issue.

Re: Volume Control Issue

(SOLVED) I think I've actually managed to resolve this issue. I said in post 1, that this issue did not exit in KDE Neon. So what I have done is copied the /etc/pulse/daemon.conf file from KDE Neon, and over wrote the file in SolydK. Rebooted & Tadaaaa. Volume is set to 45% where I left it. Opened u...

Re: Volume Control Issue

Hi Kurotsugi. This cannot possibly be a feature. no one can introduce a feature that defaults the volume back to 100% everytime you logout or reboot. If you check the link in my 1st post, I already tried changing the "flat volumes" to No, & it made no difference whatsoever. I do not use Windows, so ...

Re: Volume Control Issue

Just some extra info. I have managed to get Debian 9 installed on a separate partition, & the problems the same. So it seems this is an upstream Debian issue. After Googling, there seems to be plenty of others with the same issue. It isn't a problem on any ubuntu derivative of 16.04, probably becaus...

Re: Volume Control Issue

Thanks for all your hard work. I will just have to live with it at a 100% for now. I've not made any adjustments to my system, it's simply a stock install with a few extra apps installed. Interestingly i've also noticed that in pavucontrol , whatever volume I set the system sounds to does stick, but...

Re: Volume Control Issue

Thanks for your quick reply Scott. 1. As soon as I open Amarok, the system volume reverts back to 100%. 2. If Amarok is at 100% so is system Volume. 3. I can drop Amarok's volume without it affecting system volume, but not the other way around. 4. I should be able to change the system volume, to say...

Volume Control Issue (solved)

Using Solydk 9 & enjoying the experience. Just one thing is bugging me. I normally set the volume, from the tray icon to 60%. However when I do it drags down the volume of the Applications as well, ie. Amarok. So when I reduce my main volume to 60%, Amarok now plays at 60% of 60%, if you get what I ...

Re: No Updates?

The updates were done as part of the installation process.
That makes sense, I started to wonder if that was the case. In that case problem solved.

Re: No Updates?

So are you saying that Soldyk has automatically updated my system without me knowing?
Or has there been no updates since the latest distro release?

Re: No Updates?

Hi Scott. Thanks for your reply.
That's kind of the point I'm making. The first thing I do after an install is apt-get update & apt-get upgrade.
However there is nothing to update, which I find strange.

No Updates?

After fresh install of SolydK, I check my enabled repos & enabled backports, but to my surprise there was not one update available. Considering Debian has released 9.1 that didn't seem correct.
Can anyone confirm that there has been no updates since the release of the latest iso?
