Re: Strange behavior of dolphin find search

Thanks for that link Snap
I was having the same problem but the link was the clue to fixing it.
First backup baloofilerc. Then add

Code: Select all

[Basic Settings]
   Indexing-Enabled=true
To the beginning of the file & save it. Logout and back in.
This worked in 2 SolydK installs.

Re: Breakages and News tracking Debian Testing

There is some interaction between SolydK and the update to debian testing today that is causing a looong delay in shuting down. I decided to try this on a metal install to take vb out of the varibles but it still takes in excess of 5 minutes to shutdown, either to poweroff or to restart. I'm guessin...

Re: Breakages and News tracking Debian Testing

The upgrade today went fine but afterwards the shutdown on this virtual machine increased from about 7 secs to about 5 mins.
I had seen this previously in a SolydK sid install.
This does not happen in Debian Xfce tracking sid with the same version of systemd.
