Re: Default browser Issue

No,

I clicked on a link in Thunar and FF opened it.

I want vivaldi to open the link in Thunar.

Both vivaldi and FF say they are the defaults browser.

I want to make vivaldi the system wide browser and

Code: Select all

sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser
doesn't work.

Re: Connecting Android devices

I have a OnePlus One running CyanogenMod 13.0 using Android 6.0.1

My USB configuration options are:
charging
mtp
ptp
usb ethernet - RNDIS
audio source
MIDI

I think it is something either in Thunar or EE because it works just fine in a stock 32bit system.

Re: Connecting Android devices

solydx could handle both mtp and ptp protocol natively from thunar. nothing else required. just make sure your usb mode is mtp (for all files) or ptp (pics only) I'm using Android 6.0.1 and Thunar will only do ptp through "Removable Drives and Media" using shotwell, mtp does not work, at least I ha...

Re: Mounting a SATA HD

This is a Win8.1 HD and has 3 partitions, I think it WAS NOT shut down properly.

I put the HD back in the PC case and it boots just fine, now that it is shut down properly I'll try again.

I plugged in this SATA HD to my USB port of my SolydX EE 64bit machine with an adaptor.

Mounting a SATA HD

I have an internal SATA HD with Win8 on it that I removed from a spare PC, I'm trying to mount it so I can scan it with Clam.

I'm having a hard time finding out how to do this.

Could someone give me a tutorial on this?

Thanks
