Re: How do I share files between 2 solydk computers

Turns out the firewall is not the issue either. I can view the file is there, but I can't get LibreOffice to open the smb file.

...This is rediculous. Is this KDE thing or a Linux thing that this is so difficult. I'd be happy to give up security for a little convenience here.

Re: How do I share files between 2 solydk computers

Thanks Solyd, I didn't see your post earlier. I'll have to look it over again later. right now my head hurts and it just looks complicated. I found that I can turn off my firewall and it appears to work, so I will do that for now. But I know lost 3 hours of work trying to gain access to my network s...

Re: How do I share files between 2 solydk computers

OK so I found out that my firewall appears to be the problem. After several hours of cursing, I can now view files if I turn off the firewall. Hopefully turning off the firewall will be a permannt solution

How do I share files between 2 solydk computers

I've been banging my head against the wall for 2 hours trying to get my 2 solydk computers to talk to each other. But I just can't make it work. Networking is always the one area that Linux seems to fail me. So now I come to you. How do I share files back and forth between 2 SolydK computers hardwir...

Re: Replace Software Manager with Gnome Software

I've recently been looking at some other desktop options. I really like XFCE and I like Budgie too. Playing around with them I can see the appeal of the gnome software center. Maybe I have let my bias against gnome sway me too much. But I still wonder if using the gnome software manager would bring ...

Re: Linksys vs Netgear routers

Thanks guys. I recently had a friend visit who had a new Hawking router he wasn't using. So he gave it to me. I don't know anything about the brand, but it was free so I can't complain. Its not as fast as the others with 450Mhz + 350Mhz. But as stated above, that should be all I need for home use. I...

Re: Linksys vs Netgear routers

snip... It sounds to me like you are relying on WiFi to connect your router to your PC(s). As WiFi speeds rarely get anywhere near the published spec, WiFi is a poor method of connection if you want reliable high speeds. The best solution is to use an ethernet (wired) cable connection between the r...

Re: Linksys vs Netgear routers

... my tips is: find a product which have all features you need with the lowest price. ignore everything else which you doesn't understand or not related with your needs. extra feature is nice but it would be have no value if you don't understand what it is and rarely/never use it. Thanks. Thats pr...

Re: Linksys vs Netgear routers

Oh I also wanted to ask? Why is a usb drive plugged into the router less secure than my entire network? I would think if someone got into that usb port they would have access to all my computers. Is that not the case?

Re: Linksys vs Netgear routers

If you don't want to use the router to install your own system and extra features like NAS are not important: The only thing that really matters is trust and reliability. Which company is best known for closing security holes quickly? (AFAIK neither Linksys nor Netgear earned a gold medal in the pa...

Who do you guys prefer for routers, Linksys or Netgear? I recently picked up the Netgear R6900 from Costco for $140 http://netgear.com/home/products/networking/wifi-routers/r6900.aspx but I really wanted the Linksys WRT1900asc. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833124605&cm_re=wr...

Re: Replace Software Manager with Gnome Software

Maybe it's just because I've gotten used to it, but I prefer Synaptic, and/or apt over all of the fancy Software managers. I do understand the need for something smooth and pretty for those trying to transition from other OSes to Linux. But, all I ask is that you don't remove Synaptic from SolydXK,...

Why do you prefer Debian based distros

Since SolydXK is built on Debian stable, I am going to assume that most of you here prefer Debian Stable as a base. Or maybe Debian testing for the EE users. So why do you prefer Debian over say Ubuntu base or maybe even other rpm or other distros? I have always liked Debian because its stable and p...

On a side note: if I had to migrate all our Gtk+ applications to Qt, that would be a tremendous amount of work: http://wiki.lxde.org/en/Migrate_from_GTK%2B_to_Qt So whats your point. :D Haha just kidding.

Re: New desktop environments for Qt - Lxqt, Hawaii, Papyrus

IIRC openbox is also based on qt. but that might not what you're looking for :lol: I think openbox is gtk but the lxqt guys (pcman I think) made a qt port of it specifically for lxqt. Or was that something else they ported, I don't remember. Anyway, yeah you are right, not quite what I was looking ...

New desktop environments for Qt - Lxqt, Hawaii, Papyrus

I've been excited the last couple of years about the upcoming Lxqt desktop. I keep hoping for something like a KDE light desktop. Something that uses familiar KDE tools (like the system settings page) and programs such as, dolphin, and K3b and etc. Maybe even provide some eyecandy with kwin undernea...

Neither do I think that Linux OS's should be hard to use! I do think they should not be loaded with unnecessary bloat that just increases complexity, demands ever-more powerful hardware and slows a machine down! One of the virtues of Linux OS's is that the system is light and efficient, making conf...
