Re: LibreOffice 6

The stable edition is not going to get 6.1, until Debian makes the change to Buster as stable which should be sometime mid-year. Version 6.1.5 is in testing now.

I have used minitool partition Wizard Free successfully. https://www.partitionwizard.com/free-pa ... nager.html.
It is free but I don not know if it is OSS. It may be able to solve your problem.

Re: Breakage and News tracker for debian testing [buster]

There is a bug in apt-show-versions that breaks apt apt update. There is a workaround posted.
This is probably related to the perl transition.

Re: SolydXK on Social Media

I think the visibility factor is the determinant. Assuming that the social media accounts are locked down as much as possible, and the amount of information available in the account is limited.
One headline I saw this week, "Don't delete Facebook, just be smart when using it"

SolydXK System Settings produces conflicting entries in /etc/apt/sources.list I was setting up a VM of SolydK-ee this morning and used SolydXK System Settings to choose the fastest mirrors. After making my choices and clicking save mirrors I noticed a faster mirror for Debian, so I selected that one...

Re: Launching a program by start that needs «sudo» password

I have been curious about this myself, so this morning I investigated. The man page for visudo states that it provides some "sanity checking" when editing the sudoers file. This sounded like some syntax checking so I did a small test. In a graphical text editor, opened with elevated privileges I rem...

Re: New ISOs in ce/testing

There is no /usr/bin/apt and I couldn't find anything useful in the logs. I removed the package from the archive & then reinstalled but that was no help. The package is marked as an alpha, and Debian has a boatload of bugs against it in Sid(?). That is a far as I can go today, I'll play around some ...

I also have the same problem as Matt. This system is SolydX_9 upgraded from 8 via Schoelje's script. It is impossible to change the wallpaper to one in a different folder by using 'Desktop Settings'.
