Re: Several sound problems - bug?

I still can't figure out the xfce4-mixer problem but at least the sound problem seams to be fixed. I systematically clicked all places where you can mute sound in pulse audio an tried lots of combinations until I found one that worked. There seems to be no indicator whether sound is muted or not - I...

Re: SSD Install Question.

If the SSD is the only storage medium you have on your comp there is not very much you can do to reduce wear. Depending on how much memory you have you could think about storing log files only temporary by moving some stuff (probably /tmp and /var/log) into RAM. There are howto's for this on the net...

Re: New HDD, how to partition and have permissions after

I'm a linux beginner and just installed a new WD 3 TB and I have no idea how to get it to automount with the correct rights without editing fstab. So this is what I did: 1. Start gparted, write partition table and partitions the way I want them. 2. Start Terminal and find out UUIDs with sudo blkid 3...

Re: Several sound problems - bug?

I'm feeling bad about pushing this but could anybody maybe have a look whether the segfault message indicates that a bug about xfce4-mixer is involved? If that is the case I could find out how to install the fix for that from debian-testing. But I wouldn't want to mess with the ressources if that is...

OK no wiki for solyd documentation /sadface I had a look at that Fullcircle issue and that is not exactly what I had in mind. I think many windows convertees will struggle mostly with setting up the system - at least I know I do. If you got through all those problems or if somebody else does that fo...

Re: New HDD, how to partition and have permissions after

As far as I understand it is best to do any permission changes in the /etc/fstab file. It's fairly straightforward. There are a lot of explanations on the web about the structure of fstab, it.s not really hard and much easier than this chmod stuff. Attention: You have to boot the system from the liv...

Re: Several sound problems

Hm, your situation sounds different. I didn't switch and plug anything and I don't want to. Headphones are plugged into the rear and speakers into the front (vice versa would be ok too but for some reason doesn 't work under windows) . I want both to work simultaneously like it does under windows. U...

I tried sudo dpkg -i /var/cache/apt/archives/libc6_2.17-97_* and the other two commands directly afterwards.
