Re: People still using DMO - modify your sources before updating! NOW!

I don't understand what you are confused about, ilu. What I came to the forum with was a problem for which I had no solution. Kurotsugi solved that for me by telling me to replace "stable" with "jessie" in dmo.lst before you entered the conversation. This original problem was followed by the discove...

Re: People still using DMO - modify your sources before updating! NOW!

Sorry, I should have been more clear. Just what packages make up the DMO contribution to Solydx. The post title implies that some may not use DMO products.

Re: Major Updates today

It was not sources.list, but rather sources.list.d.dmo.list being changed from http to https that caused the Icon to change to a bright red exclamation mark that failed to respond when selected.

Re: Major Updates today

I had this same problem and fixed it today with these instructions. Should /etc/apt/sources.list.d./dmo.list be changed to https also? edit added: Oops. No. True that changing http to https in /etc/apt/sources.list make the repositories visible in Synaptic and Software Manager. BUT, changing /etc/ap...

Re: Update Manager shows updates available after update

Thank you very much, Kurotsugi. I appreciate your patience. I wasn't aware that I had to do anything to be upgraded. I just assumed that all I needed would be sent to me through the update manager.

Never mind. The problem is in the Settings->Appearance-> Clearlooks. I changed to greybird-solydx and all is well.

Thunderbird drop-down menus are no longer outlined, nor do their option lists highlight current value.

Re: Updates seem behind

FWIW, my original ISO was easily 2014 or earlier. I had always assumed that the ISOs were primarily for new users, and seldom, if ever, installed the whole system. I hated spending several days messing with preferences, bookmarks, etc. As I mentioned earlier, I have a data-only partition, so I no lo...

They were nominally identical, but the sound card was upgraded by Dell on the second machine in the interim. My card: $ inxi -A Audio: Card Int...
