Update achieved

Hello, The recent update for me went well, The only issue I had was that my KDM desktop got corrupted, I had no borders and my pager was gone.

Re: Add Apache OpenOffice to repos

If I may offer a suggestion, why not add Apache OpenOffice to our repos? Maybe a community repo? It would really nice to have an alternative to LO. Apache OpenOffice is the same as LibreOffice except it has fresh code. From what I understand, it was completely rewritten (Which may be the reason it ...

Re: Remove shadow of the window title - Firefox

Hello,

I think if you turn off hinting under System setting-Application Apearance-fonts Then Anti Aliasing. turn off the hinting style and see if that helps.

I also like the way you put using KDE, and yes using XFCE would entail learning how to...

Re: [Solved] First day not going well

Hello,

If you get a chance to load SolydK on another system, Try it without plymouth and see if it will load. Seems that loading plymouth can and will cause issues.
