Re: Pipelight by default

I tried the Pipelight method with no luck at all getting it working ... but I know that during the install libjack0 was required. (don't recall if libjack0:i386 was or not) I'm using netflix-desktop which is the earlier method that works fine on my 64bit and didn't have to install libjack0 or libja...

If you don't have Netflix, you can test silverlight videos here.

Re: Pipelight by default

I'm only using the silver light version, and it's only for Netflix support really.

Pipelight by default

Setting it up was simple for me, but newbies might want this by default to enjoy netflix out of the box:

Re: Good, Bad 'n Ugly.

With Ubuntu, you either get the LTS version and be outdated, or you get the regular version and be reinstalling your OS every couple months. SolydXK is the only Debian (testing branch) based option that gives you a stable and frequent rolling release update model. It's unique in this aspect, and thi...

Re: UP 2013.12.06 [PRODUCTION]

I updated and everything went perfect with no incident at all. Thanks again to the SolydXK team. Suggestion: Perhaps a graphical tool to remove old kernels? Maybe make it part of DDM in the kernel section. It's easy for me to use the command line, but a newbie wouldn't know how to clean it up. Here ...

Re: I can't purchase games on Steam.

Appearently, it's affecting Kubuntu users as well.

The solution is to opt in to Steam Beta in preferences, and everything is good again! :)

I can't purchase games on Steam. [Solved]

Basically, the boxes cannot be checked, and it has a red color.

Is this SolydXK/Debian specific or our Ubuntu brothers having the same issue?

System:
Nvidia Geforce 260 GTX
Althlon II
4gb of ram

Re: SolydK LTS (Long Term Support)

I see that his has already gone live. Congrats!

I'm guessing that this version won't have as much maintenance since the Debian Stable branch is inherently stable by nature (tested intensively by the Debian team).

Re: UP communication complaints.

Bi-monthly or quarterly releases sounds good to me. Being 2-3 months behind Debian Testing isn't bad. Do what you guys think is more comfortable to maintain.

Lancelot KDE Launcher

I just wanted to comment on how much better I think Lancelot is than the standard KDE launcher, and I think it would give the distro an extra polish for Lancelot to be the default over the standard one. It takes 1 less click to get to my apps, so I think it's much more functional default. Attached i...

Re: UP 2013.10.06 12:00 UTC [PRODUCTION]

The upgrade didn't go smoothly for me due to Nvidia issues. Even after re-installing Nvidia Kernel DKMS, it still kept complaining about having the 3.04 module with the 3.19 drivers. To fix this, I installed the Nouveau drivers, and then reinstalled the nvidia-drivers (command line), rebooted and ev...
