Yep saw the Distro watch announcement and did some googling and reading.
Found the rolling release compelling and liked the way Solyd K was implemented.

So backed up my Linux Mint KDE 15 4.10.5 partitions and Installed the SolydK 64bit 2013-08 iso.
Took a total of 60 mins total including personal package installs and tweaking the desktop.

Like the default partitions install of just right clicking to assign / root and separate /home is not formatted by default.
Had to install a couple of programs like conky which I think should be default in all distro's. And had to fetch Yawp weather plasmoid from the repos. Adjust themes back to way I had them.

SolydK KDE Desktop Dual Displays Aug. 24th 2013 by Orbmiser, on Flickr

But default panels came up and saw my dual monitors and setup with no adjustments necessary as use the default open drivers for my Ati 4350 card.

Only confusion was during install my host computer is always named Winterfell but Solyd wouldn't allow Uppercase no biggy just confused as all other distro's allowed first letter capitalization. Also first time I clicked on my working Ntfs partition ask for password and I checked for remembering as never had to do that with others.

Only hope that sticks and don't have to keep answering password for mounting my ntfs drives.

Update: Nope on reboot when clicking on ntfs partition in dolphin get the Authentication is required to mount even tho in removable devices I have it set to automount and also answered the authentication dialog with Remember Authorization check-marked.

But Smooth and responsive as my Mint KDE was and will be testing this as my main setup over next few months.

Congrats on a Great Distro and Kudo's for All for their Hard Works! :P

hi Orbmiser,
I found a good solution for mounting partition. I am using pysdm.

I use separate home partition and once I set everything in pysdm, things went smooth.

My only issue is the trash location. I do not know how to put trash in my separate home partition.

And I observe another thing:
- if I install kio-mtp ( for linking my Note2 with laptop) the Dolphin becomes start slow (3-4 sec).
- after uninstalling kio-mtp, Dolphin return to a normal behavior (<1sec).

Strange !!!!!

Thanks but found an easier solution in the Debian forums.
Found in Debian Forums thought to share here.

You can investigate /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.udisks.policy

Code: Select all

  <action id =”org.feedesktop.udisks.filesystem-mount-system-internal”>
    <description>Mount a system-internal device</description>
    <allow_active>auth_admin_keep</allow_active>

=> replace auth_admin_keep with word yes to see if it works according to your wish.

And tried it and rebooted and yep my internal ntfs is now mounted at startup and works normal in dolphin.
