Re: Power management interrupting movies

I typically use the following command to overcome the issue of the monitor/screen turning off while watching a movie: xset -dpms s off This does turn powermanagement off as far the screen is concerned, but that is what you want/need to do for this to work, isn't it? Or do you want to automatically h...

Re: issues due to browser-cache.sh in profile chain

It isn't present on my SolydX EE installation and I'm quite sure I never removed it. As you've noted, it isn't part of the firefox package and it isn't (pre)installed on the ISOs either. Could it have been created by an add-on? I installed SolydK-EE today, and the browser-cache.sh definitely showed...

Re: Firefox and Libreoffice not taking focus

I do not recognize this problem happening with Firefox, but I definitely do for LibreOffice in KDE.. You start e.g. Writer and 9/10 times you have to move over to the taskbar, click on it, and only then the window appears and takes focus. Very frustrating indeed ;-) But recently I followed up a tip ...

Re: [Spotify package] is not working REOPENED

Slight issue detected: On a clean solyd system, when installing the spotify-client from the import branch of the solydxk repository, it turns out that scripting inside the deb package creates a reference to spotify's own repository, like this: root@bashost:/etc/apt/sources.list.d #>>> cat spotify.li...

Re: [Spotify package] is not working REOPENED

@falke, Import refers to the 'import' branch/subdir of solydxk's general repository, browse to http://repository.solydxk.com/pool/import to get an idea of its content to which Spotify has now been added. If you were using the workaround , it is best to undo it first: remove (or comment) the line con...

Re: [Spotify package] is not working REOPENED

Today, I saw that the new 1.0-something version of Spotify has made it into Spotify's stable repository. That means that everyone who has 'deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free' added to their sources.list and upgrades the spotify-client will no longer need to have the old wheezy libgcry...

Re: Forum updated

Personally, I really like the new SolydXK logo's and the new corresponding Forum theme. The only thing I find frustrating is the large fonts and 'low per screen information density' when browsing the forum on my smartphone (Galaxy S4). Is there an easy way to layout the forum site on the phone ident...

Re: [Solved] Unable to install MS Office 2010

Windows and Unix/Linux systems "talking to each other" But, sharing/querying a user-repository over the network (winbind), is a different story than running on an emulated platform (wine). AFAIK it's only MS Office 2010 but I could be wrong. I am sure that not every Windows application requires win...

Autsj, OK, I'm sorry :oops: Still don't understand the relationship though. This winbind thing keeps nagging me :? For my personal use, I purge it, have it out of the arena.

Nice :) and be welcome!
I also find that in practice Linux is far better supported for private users, considering this and other forums.

Re: [Solved] Unable to install MS Office 2010

@Schoelje, Just a question: why did you suggest to install winbind along with wine32? It is wine32 that solves this problem, winbind has no technical relationship with either wine32 or this problem, AFAIK. Installing winbind without disabling it, introduces the samba problem http://forums.solydxk.co...

my concern is that adding wine into the iso would diminish lot of our potential user. I do agree that we need to improve our OOTB experience but I don't want to lose those potential user too. some distro indeed put wine in their iso but so far they were aiming for segmented (small) market ( new lin...

I agree with Schoelje that it is a good idea to reintroduce wine32 in a default install.
