Hi Team,

I don't know whether it is the right place to post this, but Thunderbird is prompting to update it since this morning however, update manager shows nothing. Can this be checked?

Thanks :)

Thunderbird updates come through the SolydXK repositories, so you will see them in updatemanager. The update notifications you get from Thunderbird are useless in this case (a remnant from windows). Go to preferences->advanced->updates and disable them. This does not affect the updates of the various addons you may have. (leave those checked)

Hi salemt87, and welcome to our forum!

I had that once, and it was caused by a faulty ISO download.
Did you check the md5sum before installing?

You can find it on the product page of the main site.
In your case for SolydK32: 14fb8095ba3521db96d78b8c11c88077

If you burned to a DVD, you should md5sum that DVD.

Hi zerozero,

after installing the SolydK update packages my Nvidia driver was updated to the current version. But there is no support for my card in the new version. So I have installed manually original debian version 304.xxxx. Today I'm not sure why I have choosen the backport packages...., I think it was impossible to downgrade the packages, but I don't know why.......
I will post the inxi output in the next time, unfortunately I'm have only little time to "play" with the best KDE Distri at the moment.

P.S.: The original 304... Nivida drivers should be available in the standard repositories, right? I'm thinking about why downgrading was impossible. Maybe I should start a new trial to install the old drivers.....

I'm not certain what you mean, but I think you're referring to the legacy packages:
nvidia-legacy-304xx-driver

Hello,

you are right, I refering to the nividia-legacy-304xx-driver. Unfortunately I have allow to update these package. After that it was impossible to make a downgrade, maybe I have made a mistake.... I'm not sure.

When I was using a Nvidia 7600 GT card, I would ....

Remove the current Nvidia drivers .. See this post --> http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewtopic.php? ... 914#p21874

Then install the legacy driver

Code: Select all

$ sudo apt-get install nvidia-legacy-304xx-driver nvidia-xconfig
$ sudo nvidia-xconfig
$ sudo reboot

Hello ScottQuier,

yesterday evening I started an new trial to install the nvidia-legacy-304xx-driver package and every thing is fine now. Thank you for your hint. I don´t know what´s going wrong at my first attempt but now it´s solved. No need for bpo packages. Really great.
Maybe my problem was caused in the time of transition from "normal" Nvidia driver to the legacy package?! Great forum and great KDE distro. It´s safe to say that SolydK is the best KDE distro I have used.
Thank you!

Thank you for your help!

I don't understand why this happens that the legacy driver is not installed automatic because the card is detected correct. I have also installed Kubuntu and there it works correct. It must be a debian bug, or?

Perhaps the admins can post this workaround explicit at the update section, because all with older nvidia cards will have this problem.

I bought now a newer computer with a intel graphic card and there i hope it will work better.

Because a lot of folks have issues with getting the Nvidia driver set up correctly and/or they want to remove the Nvidia driver in favor of the nouveau driver .... well, I thought it was time to get all the pieces together in one place.

Hence ... this tutorial ---> http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2908

As to the intel graphics card ... I have AMD64 chipped tablet on which I've installed SolydK. It has an intel graphic device and (after I removed most of the MS Win8 artifacts) it works SWEET right out of the box!
