Re: XFCE Power Manager--screen won't unblank

I don't know how much time has to elapse before the problem begins. 2. The screen both blanks and turns off. If I get the scree...

Hi, I am using SolydX and my system is up-to-date tracking Stable. I use XFCE power manager to (among other things) turn off the screen on my laptop after a certain number of minutes.

Re: UP 2014.10.15

SOLVED See end of post. Hi, I am having problems with UP 2014.10.15. I began the upgrade using the Upgrade Manager. This process was interrupted a couple times by Power Manager putting the system to sleep. Eventually the upgrade failed. I do not remember what the error was. I ran sudo apt update the...

apt purge ^live-
to purge these. There very well may be a better way, but it solved the problem for me.

Re: No graphical interface after installation

Thanks for the quick reply. I have used this iso to install successfully before and I am sure I check the md5 when I first downloaded it. It is the solydx64_201309.iso. I can't seem to find an md5 for it now on the website. I also tried the most recent iso with the same results. I did check the md5 ...

I still haven't got this figured out, and would appreciate help. I've tried a few things in grub including nomodeset and xforcevesa with no joy. I think perhaps the problem is something to do with the login process since x works fine from recovery/single user mode. Is there anything I can do to chan...
