Re: KDE5

You are talking about Debian testing. I know it is the basis for SolydXK EE. But I am talking about KDE5. The KDE guys (and girls) should never have started releasing it till it was much more stable. Now, for over a year already there are unstable OS's because people want KDE5 since they know it exi...

Since I also have to rotate it back to original position it is easier to use the head for the rotation. Pictures change every 10 seconds. A bit hard to do with the monitor. :lol:

Re: SolydXK Appeal?

2) Under the hood it's Debian, a rolling-release OS (so no worrying about your OS being obsolete in 2 years), but in a more friendly package. That's not correct. SolydXK is based (at least since Jan 2015) on Debian Stable "Jessie", that is obviously not a rolling-release. For users in search of a m...

Re: Zeitgeist

I had it running in SolydK in a virtual machine, still trying out Solyd before I will use it as my main OS. In software manager I typed zeitgeist and uninstalled all the packages which showed up with the name zeitgeist in them. In a 2nd VM I use SolydX and here I see no zeitgeist packages installed ...

Re: Zeitgeist

I uninstalled it, everything I could find with name Zeitgeist in it, like Grizzler also wrote. Not one uninstall told me this or that package will be removed as well, so I guess it is pretty safe to do so.

Zeitgeist

Hi, I found out that SolydXK uses Zeitgeist. I find that strange since it is something Ubuntu started using because of their Unity interface. Since SolydXK is not based on Ubuntu but straight on Debian why do we have it here? I read info about Zeitgeist on the internet and although people are trying...

Install SolydXK on RAID 0

In this tutorial I will explain how to install the operating system (OS) on RAID disks. In my example I use RAID 0, which officially is not a RAID because it offers no data security whatsoever should a disk crash. This is caused by having no Redundant Data at all which is needed to give the security...

Rotated wallpaper

Hello all, This summer I made a lot of pictures during our holiday trip and I have setup a folder as slideshow for my desktop. The pictures show one by one, 10 seconds each. Only, the ones I made when holding the camera vertical, like with a waterfall, are now shown horizontally. When opening the pi...

Re: Got a new ASUS but having trouble with the LiveUSB

Hi, just found your thread and saw that also in the Ubuntu forums they spoke about this chip.
Would it be an idea, just to try, to make a live USB stick from one of the latest Ubuntu releases? Just to see if Linux (in this case Ubuntu) can handle the chip?

Thank Zill, It's great to be welcomed like this. You are talking about New Holland, quite something else than Holland, isn't it?

Re: New installer is great

I'm happy you like the installer, but the credits largely goes to the upstream developers. I only adapt some of the parts to make it fit with SolydXK's configuration. As I'm the only developer at the moment, I can only pick up changes that have an impact on as many users as possible. A raid configu...

Re: I'm back....

Could you also explain the readers what's the difference between "The Netherlands" and "Holland" because for most people, even in The Netherlands, they are synonymous. Well, as I see it, Holland refers to the two provinces on the west coast of the country, North- and South Holland. Back in the earl...

New installer is great

Hi, After having used SolydK some years ago I now installed it again, this time in a virtual machine. My objections in the past were that the installer was too simple, it was impossible to put parts of the OS (like /home) onto a different drive cause the installer only knew one drive. Yes, it was po...

Re: Amarok Problems

When you are a true fan of Amarok then my solution is not for you. What I always do when I install a new distro is to immediately un-install Amarok, since I simply can't work with that program. The so called "intuitive" GUI is a mystery to me. I use Clementine, a program based on Amarok, but with a ...
