Re: Update – getting ready for Stretch

This morning I ran the update to the Update Manager, from 3.09 to 3.10. While the files were processing the update manager screen disappeared as did the icon on the status bar. I tried running the Update Manager from the menu and nothing appeared to happen, not even the login screen would appear. I ...

Re: Shockwave Flash crash

Thank you, I am aware of the work around and the proprietary issues. I was mostly interested in knowing if I am alone in this issue or if there are other SolydX users experiencing the problem also. It could be that Chrome is optimized for other OS and this is an affect. Before contacting the develop...

Re: USB ports not seen

Thank you Arjen, you have been very helpful. I am not certain what is going on but today every usb port seems to be working. The only thing not working is the Bluetooth dongle that I purchased last month. I will take it back to the dealer and ask them to test it by plugging into their computer. OK, ...

Re: USB ports not seen

Thank you Zill for your reply. I will consider Xfce but I am still interested to see if I can figure out what is going on with my system. I like aircraft analogies myself... perhaps it is better to fly a Spitfire which, according to experienced Spitfire pilots, any fool can fly than to fly a BF109 w...

Re: USB ports not seen

Thanks again for trying to help. The SolydK flashdrive that is showing up was NOT used for my current installation. I just downloaded it and created the live usb stick in the event that I might want to try re-installing SolydK - it is not relevant to the current system. I am using KDE because I like...

[Solved] USB ports not seen

My Gateway computer has four USB ports on the front of the machine. For the past two or three weeks SolydK only recognizes one of them /dev/sdc1 and cannot see the other three. When I reboot and use the Gateway boot menu (F12) I can see all of the ports and their devices, ergo, not a machine problem...

Re: BE to Wheezy upgrade

Thank you to everyone for your input. Personally I decided to take the easy way out after my upgrade failed. There were some warning signs for me that something was not right. My first attempt to use the upgrade manager ended in an unexplained "blue screen" in the install window that did not move or...

Re: BE to Wheezy upgrade

I ran this upgrade from the terminal and all seemed to go well. However, when I rebooted and progressed past the GRUB screen the log in script seemed to run for a few seconds with a colorful progress bar at the bottom of the screen and then the Black Screen of death came up, the monitor went to slee...

Re: KMyMoney Segmentation Fault [SOLVED]

BINGO... thank you zerozero and everyone else! That was it. The file .kde/share/config/kmymoneyrc was evidently corrupted along the way. I renamed the old file and KMyMoney opened right up when I cliked on the desktop icon. It would probably not be possible to trace out why this happened, at least w...

Re: KMyMoney Segmentation Fault

OK, the live USB test went like a charm, everything worked according to specifications. one of the possibilities is that some of the software you installed in the meantime is conflicting with kmymoney making it segfault; it's a difficult task find out which but i can give it a try between today and ...
