Re: Can't hear my headset's microphone

From the derth of suggestions, I'm going to assume it's time to call Amazon and arrange a return. I'll make sure the next set I buy is Linux friendly.

Can't hear my headset's microphone

I just bought a Nikuma K8 gaming headset from Amazon and when I plugged it into my ASUS X555LA laptop's USB port nothing happened. It turns out my laptop (with fully updated KDE) doesn't even see it when it's plugged in so I plugged the 3.5mm 4-pin headset into the combined headphones/microphone jac...

Re: Somehow my in-app icons for VLC changed recently

Damn. I need to find a way to change that. For Dodger fans that orange is even more offensive than that eye-searing green all over the Marlins' stadium.

Somehow my in-app icons for VLC changed recently

Last night I fired up VLC and I noticed that the in-app icons were orange, rather than what I think was a dark grey. I looked all through VLC and can't find what changed.

Re: Seeing a mystery indicator in my task manager

It's on the VLC tile in the picture, but I see it pretty often with Chrome, but not on the tab that's streaming the ballgame. I've also seen it on a tile for Dolphin.

Seeing a mystery indicator in my task manager

Since the big Plasma upgrade, I'm noticing a number pops up on my task manager. Usually it's a one ("1") and I'll see it if I've got a number of programs running, but I can't figure out what it means for the life of me.

Re: Chrome keeps resizing to full screen

I think I may have found the culprit. If I don't roll up my fullscreen Chrome window with the Shade option Chrome seems to be able to remember what size I want the window. If I do I'm stuck at full screen. I'm not 100% certain this is where the bug is but it may help someone verify my bug. Speaking ...

Re: Linux Insider review of SolydK 201801

He also referred to a KDE app called Gnote that's preinstalled. Excuse me? Gnote from KDE? Not with that name, and the KDE text editor's Kate. I'm surprised nobody's posted a comment about his errors. Should I kick it off with the Gnote correction and his error about rolling releases?

Re: I lost WiFi with the latest updates

I did have to compile it but it's working now. Thank you! I think I once again have a really well-working install of SolydK! I was thinking I needed to back everything up and do a clean install, something I was not looking forward to.
