Re: How about we do a virutal Jessie Release Party!

Obviously, it was very clear to me that I REALLY need SolydXK. :) Definitely, me too! I still have the Wheezy(Xfce) install, and it was fun to play with, Heck, it's even usable out of the box. But as you say, there is a ton of config from bare Debian to a "sweet spot". Gotta have my Solyd! :D Edit:...

Re: How about we do a virutal Jessie Release Party!

For some unknown reason I've never had any success with Debian's live dvds on my hardware. I always wind up with broken X (no screens found). I have been historically too lazy to get to the bottom of it, and after a few days tinkering I just decided, as Snap said, that it's just plain easier to use ...

Re: solydxk-system 2.6.2 update error

I don't know what your final objective was; I was upgrading a SolydKBE install to Wheezy using the instructions in this post: http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=5246 I ran into the same error. I solved it by purging solydkbe-system-adjustments, and then continuing from where I left off. I...

Re: BE to Wheezy upgrade

Thanks Frank and Arjen, I'll give it a whirl and report back.

Edit:
solydk-system-adjustments_2.0.8 worked fine; apt did indeed ignore the missing recommend. All is well. Thank you both again! :D 8-)

Re: BE to Wheezy upgrade

Assuming that baloo will be installed as a recommend for the Jessie folks who are also installing solydk-system-adjustments...

Could Wheezy folks then get around it as a recommend with

Code: Select all

apt-get install solydk-system-adjustments --no-install-recommends
?

First, I apologize in advance if this was covered elsewhere and I missed it.

Re: Plymouth should be disabled by default

I'm afraid I have to throw in with Nuke and Zill as far as my personal feelings go. However this doesn't really worry me as I never have much trouble getting rid of stuff I don't want, no matter the defaults.

<ahem> Well. Almost never. Strong word, that... :mrgreen: 8-)

Re: Plymouth should be disabled by default

I'd love to have the option during installation ....It just a cosmetic thing that serves for nothing else than masking the booting process. Agreed, I'm a function over form person, which is part of the reason I never got any good with themes. Aesthetics ain't my bag. I'd like to not have to deal wi...

Re: Greybird-Solydx/Desktop Icon Label Text Color

It's a nice idea keeping the original theme. Make a copy of it with your favorite name "greybird-fleabus" and tweak it to fit your taste or make different versions to compare or just to keep them. Yes, I already did that, I chose the "Curve" window decoration because I like the narrow, dark blue ti...

Re: Plymouth should be disabled by default

My system is Nvidia 9600m/GT. Plymouth works fine on it. But I don't like to use splash screens, so Plymouth is always the first thing to go. I was a bit dismayed to find that there is now no selectable "Boot Without Plymouth" option. However, as the ISO booted, I hit Enter to stop the countdown, th...

Re: USB Phone

I have never had any trouble connecting my Samsung S5 in Solyd. A little weirdness though. I cannot move files on the phone, I must delete from the phone, then and re-copy to the new location on the phone, whether or not I have USB debugging turned on. It's weird, but I don't worry about it, I'm jus...
