I have been using the power and stability of Debian-derivatives for more than ten years.
Recently another user on the KiCAD forum suggested I update my Debian jessie linux OS to
stretch. So I searched for a day or two and tried several Debian distributions
with KDE before trying Solydxk. After searching on this forum, I discovered that the
new SolydXK version was based on stretch and just uploaded in February 2019 to the nightly
builds folder on the SolydXK download directory. So I burned the ISO to a DVD and tried it.
I like the colors and art-deco look of SolydK (++). It works with all my peripherals--Superb!
YAY! (++) So I installed it (solydK), overwriting my previous Debian linux OS. I also
like the default black/blue/green text on white background with in a Konsole terminal (++).
No twiddling necessary. It looks great right from the start.
Thank you for SolydK.
I upgraded KiCAD to the new stable 5.0.8 version using a debian backport. (This FOSS application is rapidly evolving.) This was my first time using a backport.
Thank you for the good job you did creating this stable Debian distribution. Very nice!
And unlike my previous linux installation, *** GRUB worked perfectly the first time *** after I installed SolydK. (++)
Also, I noticed from my $apt-get update && apt-get upgrade library changes that freerdp-x11 and several other
freerdp libraries have been added to my system. Indeed freerdp has been added as an application.
Code: Select all
user@solydk1:~/linux$ ls /usr/bin/*rdp* /usr/bin/xfreerdp
