Re: Thunderbird opening with every boot ...?

Hi Schoelje,

Thank You, that's exactly what I needed. I can usually figure things out eventually but didn't think to look there.
It's appreciated!

Thanks for all you do,
Dave

[Solved] Thunderbird opening with every boot ...?

Seems like it's since a recent update but Thunderbird now opens whenever I boot to SolydK.
It just automatically opens. No idea why.
I looked in Autostart but there's nothing there.
Any ideas why it would do this, I would rather it didn't do this.

Thanks for any ideas,
Dave

[Solved] How to remove SolydK 201407 Lable from USB stick

Hi, I have a 16GB Sandisk SDcard which inserts into a USB thumbdrive. Previously I used usb creator (not sure of which version I used, it was a while ago, I suppose I could have even used Unetbootin, not sure) to make a Live USB with SolydK-32-bit 201407. Now I want to use the SD/USB card for someth...

Re: BACKUP - Clone partitions w/ Gparted - Sync w/ Lucky Bac

Palimmo, For Windows backup, my brother uses " Acronis True Image 2016 " Not sure but I don't think Acronis backs up Linux partitions, you would need to read up on their website. Looks like Clonezilla does it all and is probably what you are looking for. I can't recommend a procedure using Clonezill...

Re: BACKUP - Clone partitions w/ Gparted - Sync w/ Lucky Bac

In my case it would be useful a tutorial covering Windows as well, since most of the times (let's say always) I install Linux alongside Windows. So far I have never had particular problems, fortunately... but I would like, before seriously damage a pc of a friend, find a way to "clone" the hard dis...

Hi Palimmo, You're very welcome. As I noted, feedback on improving any of this is most welcome. It's a little long winded in parts but I wanted to paint a clear picture and stress the most important points. I just hope it helps to get SolydXK users thinking about backing up their system. Backups hav...

Re: [SOLVED]can't boot using systemd

Glad to hear that you found a fix!
I don't know much about systemmd but I do know that it's the nature of Linux users to keep digging until we find a solution ... :lol: Good Job!

BACKUP - Clone partitions w/ Gparted - Sync w/ Lucky Backup

This is not the only means of backing up your system, it just the method I use. In a nutshell: A) Backup - Cut and Paste partitions using Gparted and store them on a Devoted Backup Hard Drive. B) Periodically - Keep the backup up-to-date using Lucky Backup. C) Restore - Cut and Paste backup to prima...

Just to reiterate, Backup your current system! Could you post a tutorial or suggest a link? That would be very useful! Thank you ;) Hi Palimmo, I didn't see a Tutorial for Backup on the forum.

Re: How to enable nVidia SLI mode?

Hi,

I'm not really familiar with SLI but do remember reading something about enabling/ disabling SLI in the bios.
Just a thought, hope it helps.

Re: Hello!

Hi, Welcome to the forum,

SolydXK is easy to like ... I check out other distros from time to time but always come back to enjoying the Solyd/ Stable nature of this distro. "It just works" ... pretty much says it all.

Kudos to the SolydXK team! I've not downloaded SolydXK for a while now but downloaded SolydK today via "Daily Build" torrent and all went well, nice job. I noted a couple of things you might want to check out and listed them below but they could be due to user error so take these with a grain of sal...

Hi mhwelsh,

I'll have to check out 'super grub2 usb", sounds like a useful tool.
Never used it before.

BE to Jessie cheat - Not Recommended unless you like danger.

A few weeks ago I did an HE to Jessie upgrade and all is working very nicely but it's a big upgrade. I wanted my (test) BE to also move to Jessie but didn't want to go through the long process of an upgrade from BE (Wheezy) to Jessie. I recommend waiting until Jessie is stable and the BE to Jessie u...

Re: Booting your usb stick using Virtual Box on a Linux host

Got it, used unetbootin to make a USB external HDD bootable, created .vmdk file for sdb (external HDD), changed permissions of .vmdk file to user then created a VM using the .vmdk file and pointing to ISO. VB now boots external HDD via USB and will install to any partitions on it. Should provide a b...

Re: Booting your usb stick using Virtual Box on a Linux host

Hey Snap, I thought I had it all figured out but found that (so far) I could only install a distro onto the usb itself, not onto my separate hard drive partition (VB partition). (i.e. Using gparted during install didn't see any HDD partitions, just USB partitions). Perhaps I can still get it to work...
