Update...

- I kept updating step by step... using Synaptics. So far so good.

Re: slow shutdown SolydX 2014.10.15, how to troubleshoot

Well, I dont know if this link applies or not, but sounds useful, at least for catching ideas,
e.g. determining if our particular problem is kernel OR systemd, how to log/timestamp, etc:

Re: slow shutdown SolydX 2014.10.15, how to troubleshoot

It seems common issue upon 2014.10.15. It occurs in my big rig as well as in my Dell laptop. Not always (1 out of 3, or so) - Apparently, nothing about miniDLNA. - Apparently, it's not samba or netbios daemon (nmbd or related, but I must check further) - Apparently, it's not about saving session for...

Hello all :-) Is there a troubleshooting guide or recommendation to find the reason for slow shutdown issues? My case: - Happy user of SolydX 64 bits since 2014.05 version, updated regularly... ok - Normally, fast boot up and shutdown, matter of 5 - 10 seconds - After applying update pack 2014.10.15...

Re: Understanding the Audio in Linux

...PulseAudio sounds like a very good idea. The main drawback is that it doesn't depend on itself. It depends on the application developers. So in many cases, Pulse is a source of troubles... many times the culprit is in fact not PulseAudio itself, but a bad designed piece of software not playing r...

Re: solydxbe_201407.iso, mouse at usb3 ok but usb2 nok

do you see the same behavior if you boot a live-DVD|USB? Yes, copying .iso to USB with "dd" and booting with that USB shows same (wrong) behaviour, i.e.. SolydX BE does not recognize this wireless mouse at USB2 ports. Added info: - solydxbe_201407.iso behaves badly - solydkbe_201407.iso behaves bad...

Re: Editing menu commands

Maybe the "right way" is to create another menu and edit the new one.
or
Add apps to panel... THEN edit (gksu) that new instance added to panel, instead of original one.

I use the latter method and it works perfectly at SolydX

Re: solydxbe_201407.iso, mouse at usb3 ok but usb2 nok

Hello, hmm... I think you can test ONLY in case your hardware is 64 bits capable, because solydxbe_201407.iso is for 64 bits hardware. If you have an old machine, you should check. ONLY in that case (64 bits)... THEN: + Download "solydxbe_201407.iso" and verify md5sum + Try to boot that iso using th...

Re: solydxbe_201407.iso, mouse at usb3 ok but usb2 nok

My logitech M510 has been always recognized by lots of distros and several hardware (2 laptops and 2 desktops). It would be interesting if others can try with that ISO version (solydxbe_201407.iso) This is the 1st time I see this. Likely unimportant or easy to fix upon rebooting, but I wanted to not...
