Breakage and News Tracker for Debian Testing [Bullseye]

Postby kurotsugi » 28 May 2019 05:12

Here's the breakage and news tracker for debian testing (currently : bullseye)

#Sat Aug 31 2019 10:18:34 PM WIB
new xfce caused missing wallpapers due to new xfconf element
viewtopic.php?f=78&t=7539#p70978
not a major issue but you'll need reconfigure your wallpaper to fix it. some user reported that his xfce is missing the capability to use jpeg pics but it seems that not every user is affected by this issue

#Fri Nov 1 2019 10:18:34 PM WIB
fuse is broken

the first flood seems have arrived. seems quite small compared to the old days. perhaps it's related with the release team decision. no major issues so far...in fact. there's none of it :3

Sorry being a bit dim here what exactly am I supposed to do with the file??

I downloaded it and extracted it and I was expecting a deb file what I got was a folder with 4 other subfolder, I know the answer is there staring at me but I can't see it?
:shock:

Not sure what you mean with file / folder / subfolder. We were discussing a change in system-adjustments packages for the EEs.

You shouldn't have to download anything. Just update and (dist-)upgrade your machine as usual (e.g. using apt sync in a terminal). The new version of solydxee-info should make apt remove solydx-system-adjustments-10 and install solydx-system-adjustments-11.

Sorry Grizzler, it was the Github link that Arjen put up, I thought we were downloading the update from there.

It has appeared as an update on my system now but that has brought other issues (see other post) which I need to sort first

The change in adjustment packages went well and my system now shows SolydK EE 11 64-bit, in the appropriate places.

Moved some recent posts from the ISO-maintenance thread here as they were off-topic there.

First experiences with Xfce 4.14.

Seems OK, except for one major niggle: does not accept jpegs as wallpaper/background.
What idiot decided that was a good idea...?

Edit
Got kernel 5.2.0-2 recently. No issues.

I think it's a config issue. after a reboot I noticed that my wallpaper was gone. first thing that I noticed is that the wallpaper folder setting is gone (it pointing to /usr/share/ instead of my pics location). a quick folder set seems solve this issue. I haven't dig deeply enough but my desktop still works with jpeg.

Yes, I noticed that too. 4.14 uses a different xfconf element than 4.12, just as 4.12 used a different one than 4.10. So I was prepared for that. But when I opened the right directory in the configuration window, it ignored all the jpegs and only allowed selecting pngs or svgs.
I'm going to modify my wallpaper script to use the other element and see what happens.

Edit
Well, that works. So apparently you can still use them if you know your way around the xfconf system. Now it's been kicked in the shins even the config window behaves again. Wonder what that was all about.

I'm not sure what happened. I can't replicate the issue on my system. jpegs work just fine on my system

if in any case you experienced weird sound problem related to volume control, delete everything under ~/.config/pulseaudio :3

The package itself may be transitional, but on my system there still are a lot of packages that depend on it. So no.

I've made sure that it's either gone from debian repo and no packages depends on it. I could be wrong but since it's already removed from the repo, any packages shouldn't depends on it. otherwise we'll get an unsolvable dependencies.

This morning, purging it wanted to remove about 40 other packages, one of which I didn't want to lose. This evening that one stays. Go figure.
