Re: Testing needed: kdeconnect

Very neat toy. I will echo the others comments and requests. So far working as advertized. :) Love the file download to PC and clipboard functionality. Haven't tried the remote control option. Haven't been playing media on my phones. Samsung Galaxy S and S II (Skyrocket) with cyanogenmod android ver...

Re: eepc 1001 HA

I've got an eeePC1000 with 2G RAM and have variously run SolydX, SolydK, Manjaro Netbook Edition, Manjaro XFCE and KDE. I'm presently back to SolydK.

Re: Dual boot install - help!!

Thanks Scott I didn't actually highlight sda in the window where it says unallocated. Normailly when I select the drive from the drop-down it will display the partition arrangement. That it came up unallocated this time threw me. I'll check that out in a couple of days when I get back on that comput...

Dual boot install - help!!

I installed siduction KDE on my sister's laptop (Dell Vostro) a couple of years ago. She uses Win7 32bit. When I'm spending anytime there I use linux. The latest updates for siduction fatally broke it - can't even start it in safe mode (Win7 loads fine). I've had similar problems on this machine pre...

Re: How to network 3 SolydK machines?

editing /etc/hosts worked. Don't plan on using windows - it's there only for the odd thing like updating my GPS firmware. Domain thing? Like Workgroups? No idea how I've got that set. Something else to look at. I've got enough now to make a stab at networking anyway.

Re: How to network 3 SolydK machines?

hmmm, I can ping by name from a command prompt in Win7 but not from linux? Tried two different kernels, the latest 32bit in SolydK and a slightly older 64bit kernel in Manjaro KDE.

I'll look at /etc/hosts. I'm guessing that only works if the IP address doesn't change?

Re: How to network 3 SolydK machines?

I called tech support after that last message. I've got a Comtrend ADSL modem/router. The fellow I talked to wasn't able to help but thought it should work. I'll go through the settings and see if anything jumps out at me. If not, I'll phone back and talk to someone else. The local guys are pretty g...

Re: How to network 3 SolydK machines?

I'm using DCHP provided by router which identifies the individual machines. ifconfig gives me the same information. I'd forgotten that I've got a couple of android phones and a printer hooked into the system too but I'm only really interested in the computers. Ok, that's a good start. As a check, c...

Re: How to network 3 SolydK machines?

Thank you everyone for feedback. I'm hoping to have the time to tackle networking these things tomorrow. I am following the discussion and doing some background research as things come up.

How to network 3 SolydK machines?

It's been years since I've tried to network my home computers, relying on usb storage to move files around instead. I'm now running SolydK on my machines and the stability is great. I'm hoping someone can talk me through setting these things up to talk to each other - all ext4 partitions. I seldom u...

UP 2013.10.06 - Youtube audio no longer working (Solved)

Ok people, help! I've done the latest update on three computers, two 32bit systems and a 64bit. The audio was muted in youtube on all of them. On the 32bit machines simply enabling audio worked. However, on the 64bit I still have no audio. It is working in Opera but not Firefox. All other sound is w...
