Re: (Solved)Missing toolbar buttons in some apps

Regarding URL: I'm using the button next to the font selector but it's not blue - mine are all b/w. Looks like a chain. Anyway, no "b" in there for me ... just [url][/url] Edit: Ah that one. Ok, that one's blue. Never noticed it maybe because it's blue? :lol: - Found the mistake. You use the blue bu...

Re: Missing toolbar buttons in some apps

First thing I'd try is choose another theme in Settings - Window administration (?) and see what happens. Also check the settings on the right side: It is possible to remove the buttons. Be aware that the chosen theme interacts with your choices in Settings - Appearance. You might have to logout and...

Re: Install Fail - Where & How to put Grub?

Grub : The installer starts up with sensible defaults. Leave grub where it is and don't choose any of those options. There is another option (which is checked by default) at the top which is the right one - on disk. This is easily overlooked - @Arjen: if you feel like it, there's room for improveme...

Re: google's camera security threat

It seems that at least Google had a fix rather quickly. Problem is that all the proprietary branded forks might never be patched and the user is unable to do anything about it. If that poc malicious app had been open source it would not have gone unnoticed. As we all know, if you don't control your ...

Re: KDE Failed in Solydxk 10 buster

You cannot start firefox as root because that is a severe security risk and there are provisions in place to stop you from doing this by mistake. Your main problem seems to be lack of (disk or memory) space. Since we don't know how you organized your system, boot into your system and login as root l...

What is a good system to replace Windows 7 when support ends in 2020

SolydXK is. For several good reasons and I think it would be great if some of the users who also know Win7 could write up why. Come on!

1. Menu structure is very similar to classic view - at least that's what I used last on Win7 because it looked like WinXP :-)

Re: Search engine alternatives to startpage

I've moved the search engine topic to a separate thread to keep the other thread as a to do list. One general remark: I think every search engine and every website owner stores IP addresses for a certain period (default on debian is a week) for technical reasons. A reason why I would never use a sta...

cups-pdf file names

Since I started using LibreOffice lately I found an annoying issue: When printing to pdf, the output file gets named <document file name>__non-Linux-generated_files.pdf or some part thereof. Falkon browser does the same. That's a really stupid file name extension especially since its completely untr...

Re: Firefox's new tab customisation not available.

It is mostly by design but it could be vastly improved. We wanted to eliminate the parts that compromise users privacy but we did not completely manage what we wanted to achieve and there were misunderstandings. Sorry about that. This really needs to be worked on but I'm extremely short on time at t...

Re: KDE Wallet vs KeePassXC and how to use.

To avoid confusion I have edited and changed keypass into keypassXC which I meant anyway. Go for the sid version as grizzler said.
But kwallet should work, can anybody confirm that it does/n't?

Re: KDE Wallet vs KeePassXC and how to use.

KeypassXC has a broader aim than kwallet: It also generates passwords and can be used mobile and on different systems. Whether you need that is up to you but it is widely recommended. I would stick with the debian version though and not download anything. I'm not using keypassXC although I know I pr...

Re: Waterfox

I don't think mutually exclusive is necessary because for me waterfox-current started up with a newly created profile named *.68-edition-default and left the existing classic profile untouched. I'm still using Alex' 68 download though but I don't think that will change with your packages.
