Re: Grub rescue

error: file not found. grub rescue> Thank you! I printed out your post for future reference. :D You have no idea how many times I stared at that screen after a kernel or grub upgrade, or something 'updates' grub without my permission, especially with my SATA Raid SSDs and one HDD storage drive setu...

Re: Show your Desktop Screenshots

@GNUday 8-) I'm still not too big a fan of Xfce but I only use it for testing stuff. I been a KDE fan from way back so I got used to it. Love your desktop though! Looks like you were going for an "Apple" type look? Looks clean! I used to be a KDE fan, but now I feel it's over engineered for the typ...

Create Root File Manager (Thunar) right click menu option

You need packages sudo and gksu installed (I believe they are installed by default in SolydX) and be a member of sudo to use this (in SolydX, you are probably in the sudo group already), to add yourself to sudo , become root in a terminal and type: gpasswd -a <username> sudo Open Thunar (aka 'File M...

Re: Solyd-ing Debian Jessie

I will be updating this post with my progress/results. Installing SolydX on top of a fake/hardware Raid 0 Wheezy base because I found the Jessie repos to be a little too new, Solyd's are a little behind on purpose, for quality and stability reasons, that's what makes it good, the second line of qua...

Re: Solyd-ing Debian Jessie

mkdir -p /opt/firefox/dictionaries I also updated the meta package (in the UP tomorrow). I used that fix for the solydx-meta package (pre 2014/4 package) and it worked, the error was no /home/<username>/.config/menus directory. mkdir -p /home/<username>/.config/menus I had no idea it changes a lot ...

Re: [SOLVED] Installing software that is not in the repos

I'm a lazy bum so I install gdebi, search the web for packagename.deb, plop it on my desktop, right click, 'open with gdebi' and install. I have on occasion used alien to convert *.rpm packages if I want to install something really bad. I know your apps are very specific and you may not find prepack...

Re: Solyd-ing Debian Jessie

Phew, that was a lot of work, not for the timid, lol, anyway, I wanted to get it done before the UP is released so I can cherry pick updates with Synaptic, a few at a time, I find gradual updating reduces problems and the progress can be more thoroughly monitored (I watch the terminal window in Syna...

Re: Solyd-ing Debian Jessie

WOW ;) :ugeek: Lol, now you know I'm crazy and I'll try anything. :mrgreen: Now I have the best of both worlds, it's not without it's hiccups though, the Debian repos are obviously going to be slightly ahead packages version wise so the base install has been presenting some dependency issues (not e...

Re: Solyd-ing Debian Jessie

I just rebooted, you won't believe this, there is SolydX artwork in grub (while installing the base Debian, I put grub on the sdc HDD boot sector on purpose, it's easier than having it on the dual SSD Raid 0 boot sector), the kernel option line in grub even says SolydX, even the greeter is now Solyd...

Re: Solyd-ing Debian Jessie

It is the only error but is it an important one? If so, is there a workaround? no, it's not important, apt will work the same. will only warn you that some packages can't be authenticated because you don't have the keyring. and the one you are missing is apt install deb-multimedia-keyring apt updat...

Re: Solyd-ing Debian Jessie

As the name suggests, /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/80updatemanager is part of the updatemanager. I suspect you haven't installed that yet ;) But I did get update manager installed, and the keyring, system settings, etc, but I still get this: W: GPG error: http://debian.solydxk.com testing Release: The follo...
