Re: New ISOs in ce/testing

Oops. Thanks for catching that Schoelje. I did it correctly in the program but was hasty in composing the post.

Re: New ISOs in ce/testing

I found a small problem with the EE iso's. The timezone settings in both the Solydx and solydk were incorrect. In the solydx vm the date command returns the time in CEST, 6 hours ahead of New York. Looking at /etc/localtime appears to be a binary with readable references to CEST. Looking at /usr/sha...

Re: New ISOs in ce/testing

Installed solydkee_9_64_201607 in a vm. Other than the known problems with the installer it installed without problems. In the solydxk welcome screen are the business applications still pertinent? They did not install for me even the text box said that they did. All the others worked, except the gam...

Glad you found it, and posted it. I've never changed anything in that part of the settings and now I know not to. :D

Re: Move open program to different desktop

Moving a program to a different desktop is working fine in my SolydK's, both the main version and the EE version. I might be something peculiar to your system. Mine is almost totally vanilla.

Re: Breakages and News tracking Debian Testing

Glad I wasn't the only only one. I have been playing around with this for a little and found a couple of things. 1) It is not a big problem for single user machines. It only has effect, on me, if I log out and switch user. When I do that then neither user can log in. However a quick restart allows t...

Re: ISO testing 201606

That is odd. I did hit the apply button, (just checked it again :lol: ) and it works the same in SolydX where the change is immediate.
Think the Thundebird people forgot they had a search engine? :mrgreen:

Re: ISO testing 201606

nepomukbackup and nepomukcleaner "have no executable's". I did a quick search and there were no file for them in the */bin folders.
The DVD was my fault. I tried to play it before going through the welcome screen. Once libdvdcss was installed it played as expected.

Re: Libreoffice Quickstart

I can confirm that the checkbox to "Load LibreOffice during system start-up." is missing in version 5.1.2.2+.
However it is there in LibreOffice 5.0.2.2 for Windows.
I posted a question on Ask LibreOffice, so we will see if anything comes of that.

Re: USB Creator 2.0

That was an awfully short holiday Schoelje.

I tried out the new usb-creator and was able to boot a live session in Xubuntu and SolydK.
Manjaro-fluxbox however erred. The error message is in the other text file attached.
I have a 32 gb pen drive here so I can give the large one's a try tomorrow.
