Re: Need to learn how to overcome dependencies on install

So I already attempted to correct some of the missing dependencies using apt-get. Are you saying I should try to uninstall those too using Synaptic? Or just uninstall openshot? I don't even remember what they were. I think one of the dependencies had to do with python. Such a newbie nightmare! I wo...

Re: Need to learn how to overcome dependencies on install

I personally prefer Synaptic Package Manager to Software Manager as I think there's less chance for that type of issue using Synaptic. You could try to uninstall it using Synaptic then re-install. You can also view dependencies there. But if you know the name of the application you want to install a...

Hi Adam - Welcome to the SolydXK family! Not sure if I'll be able to help you out here but I'm willing to give it a go. A little disclaimer is in order first though to avoid confusion: I do not have or will probably never have Windows 8 on a laptop or otherwise. I also do not have a system with UEFI...

Excellent. That gives us some good information to troubleshoot with.

Re: freefilesync program on solydxk

Interesting sync program. Maybe your archive didn't extract properly or the file properties were not carried in the extraction. I went to open the readme after I extracted into home and it asked me if I wanted to run or display. I thought that was odd for a text file so looked at permissions on all ...
