Smitty, when posting a youtube movie just copy the text after /watch?v= and put that inside the youtube quotes. Then you will see the movie here on the site.

Re: Testers needed: new Live Installer

I did Test 3 twice and did get the warning to install /boot on a non-encrypted partition (outside the encrypted / partition)
Installing it now for the second time, first time did not boot at all.

Re: Testers needed: new Live Installer

I am in the installed OS now, wrote the last post also with it. So yes, it is working without any problem.
Do you want me to do some more tests, if so which ones?

Re: A new installation (FR)

Hi again, I'm sorry but I can't find anything wrong in your setup. To me it seems to be okay. I have no idea why you keep getting the message that /boot/efi is too small. I hope somebody else can help you, I can't. Sorry. Bonjour, Je suis désolé mais je ne peux pas trouver quelque chose de mal dans ...

Re: Message indicator

Thunderbird has an add-on for this, called firetray. With no received messages you see the Thunderbird logo (Firebird) and as soon as there is a message received this logo changes into a small box with the number of received messages. It's not what I use to have but it works so I guess I just keep t...

Re: Message indicator

Hi Zil,

You are using a different program for this. I can install it, it is in the repos, but the one KDE always had was working fine, until now in SolydK
I see only this when right-clicking the icon:

Message indicator

Hi, In previous Linux distros I always had a Message indicator in my panel showing me if I had received e-mails. In SolydK this is also present, although I had to make it visible by changing a setting. Doesn't matter, I see it now. It does however not show me if mails have arrived (color does not ch...

Re: [resolved] New user : some dumb questions

Thank you for your answer. No, no, I don't want the latest software in general. I will not be using the backports, I just wanted to know what they are. Yes, I did install Chrome and LO5 from outside Debian but that will be all I do. The rest of the used software is from within the normal repositorie...

Re: A new installation (FR)

How and when did you change the size of partition sdb1? When you changed it was the installer still active, or did you re-start it afterwards from the beginning? Maybe you should you reboot your computer into the live version again, check with gparted to see if your partitions are okay, shutdown gpa...

Re: [resolved] New user : some dumb questions

A question from me about this subject: What exactly is backport? Is it a repository where stuff is placed which could be installed in the stable release but shouldn't? Where does the name come from? I installed the main edition of SolydK and try to keep it as it is now. Not easy, I added an extra re...

Re: A new installation (FR)

Hello, In the second picture is your boot/EFi partition also sdb1? Now the size is 206MB. Is this the same computer, or is it another one? You ask about enlarging the efi partition, but if it is the same computer you have done that already. If I am correct the efi FAT32 partition should be 128MB min...

Re: SolydXK Appeal?

Okay, so the base is a system which stays in operation till the next version has become stable. The user programs on top of that are constantly updated as soon as an update is released. This way you have the best of both worlds. A rock-solid base with the latest on top of that. But, how about the di...

It worked just fine when I made the post earlier in this thread and it is working just as well today. I use Plasma 5 with the kdenext repo on my main machine.
