Launching a program by start that needs «sudo» password

Hi there,

I run SolydX. And I use a VPN (Airvpn). I would like to be able to launch my VPN at start, but without to have to type my password. I know.

How should I do this ?

Re: New SolydXK ISOs released!

I'm coming back to SolydX, after a year with MX. The SolydX System Settings is a real nice new tool. Thank you !

Re: darktable, backports repository,

And there were also dependencies. So I chose the Buster way. So far, no problem. I'm not comfortable with compiling series of dependencies. Also could create a conflict, I believe.

Re: darktable, backports repository,

The version provided by the backports is, if I'm not wrong, 2.2.x. I wanted the 2.4 version. :)

Re: darktable, backports repository,

To install darktable 2.4.0 on SolydX 9 : add a repository «debian buster»

URI : http://deb.debian.org/debian/
Distribution : buster
Section(s) . non-free contrib main

Then update, install darktable, and then *disable* the new repository.

My laptop is a Samsung, and in the BIOS there is an option «UEFI compatibility», which was on «enabled», with a comment «enables boot with UEFI». Now this got me confused : boot is n...

Re: the 201606 installation and the idiot

So you tried to install the SolydX1606 ISO which got hung up somewhere Not quite. The program works. It just doesn't install. Now you want to - get help because something is still not working? - report an installer error? - just rant some? I don't want anything. As mentioned, I'm typing from a work...

the 201606 installation and the idiot

Either the «1606» install program is not idiot-proof, or I am an idiot. The fact that I can't answer the question seems to indicate that the second proposition is correct, but then I need that proved to me. Definition of «idiot» : I use Linux since 2001 (Mandrake -> Ubuntu ->Mint -> SoldyX, with som...

darktable, backports repository,

My problem (although it *is* solved), is following : I'm using a software (darktable). It is in the repositories at version 1.4.2-1, which is *old*, quasi obsolete, but there is in the backports the current version : 2.0.4-1~bpo8+1 Only, it won't install (I usually use synaptic). So I used apt on a ...

Re: Trouble with external monitors

I'm not sure this will help, but here goes : I have a laptop with a VGA port, and I have also a HDMI port, which I occasionally use (to watch films on my TV). I can't be sure of why, but sometimes my VGA screen changes its name. Sometimes it is VGA1, but sometimes VGA2. The easiest way to track that...

install program

Hi there, I had to reinstall SolydX lately, and was surprised to see that I could not include some partitions in my system, since I could not write the name for the mounting point (for instance /media/dwnld), and could only select one of the pre-existing mount points. I know, I know, I can always mo...
