Your browser is being managed by your organization

Why do I get the message:

"Your browser is being managed by your organization."

And how do I get back control?

Bluetooth cannot connect to Otium headset

Code: Select all

Connection Failed: blueman.bluez.errors.DBusFailedError: Protocol not available
This works fine on Ubuntu and Mint. What can I try to make it work on Solydx?

Re: DuckDuckGo's dark theme is not persistent(solved)

Pasting
https://duckduckgo.com/?kae=d
every place that
https://duckduckgo.com/
is found cures the problem.
I never had to do this before with Firefox.

my organization(solved)

solydx_9_64_201902
Firefox Quantum 60.6.0esr

At the top of Firefox-> Preferences:
"Your organization has disabled the ability to change some preferences."

What "organization" might that be?

DuckDuckGo's dark theme is not persistent(solved)

I just installed Solydx_9_201902. In Firefox 60.5.1esr, DuckDuckGo's dark theme is not persistent, i.e. When dark is selected and saved it is only dark initially. All invocations of DuckDuckGo thereafter have a white background.

Re: Where are the environment variables displayed by "env"?

Thanks, Ilu. I knew that they were all, like PATH, put in from by various sources. I just assumed that there was a single place that the various sources put their contribution. It just didn't make sense that the env command had to run around to dozens of places to aggregate its output, and to do thi...

Where are the environment variables displayed by "env"?

Where are the environment variables stored in Solydx? There is nothing in /etc/environment, where I expected to find them.

Re: rebuild boot menu

Thanks everyone. I saw such commands fly by during installation, but I had no idea what was happening that I couldn't see. It seems that you can change the default boot in a multiboot system by using those two commands from whichever distro that you want to be the default.

rebuild boot menu

Every distro creates a new boot menu. So, when I screw up my boot, I must install a new distro to get a new boot menu. Is there an app that just builds a new menu without wasting time downloading and installing everything? I'm not giving the search engines the correct magic words. (Grub-customizer A...

Re: This is not the title to the thread I started

@ilo I sometimes get the feeling that you only skim and never read carefully my posts. Think about it: I unknowingly bought a new computer that contained a graphics capability that was beyond reach of Solydx. I have no way to run Solydx on that new computer. So there was no decision to be made. Howe...

Re: Running Solydx on UEFI/GPT computer

@ilu In truth, I want to thank you for your discovery that my problem with my new computer was not the fault of the UEFI, but rather the presence of a new Intel graphics chip that Debian/Solydx had no driver for. As for the additional information you requested, I am sorry to say that a short time ag...

Re: Running Solydx on UEFI/GPT computer

Attached is the same 3 commands from ubuntu. You are absolutely right: the graphics card in this machine is simply too new to be handled correctly by current isos of debian or solydx. That also explains why boot from within UEFI Boot Options displays correctly: of course the UEFI knows how to deal w...

Re: Running Solydx on UEFI/GPT computer

I'm confused. Just as in the old MBR system, the last distro installed builds the only useful grub menu. The menus built by the earlier distros are no longer up to date. I can boot solydx from the UEFI Boot Options(F12) and therefore the older unused grub menu built by solydx, at the time of its ins...

Re: Running Solydx on UEFI/GPT computer

I assume that you mean the ubuntu grub menu. Selecting solydx will bring up an 800x600 version of solydx. I don't know how to do this: "have a look whether the first tab (Driver) offers you anything" I also attached a copy of the /boot/grub/grub.cfg from the ubuntu partition, the only one which work...

Re: Breeze-Dark-X style no longer works for YouTube

Apparently, if I want Breeze-Dark-X to work also with YouTube, then I must not update/upgrade Firefox. Not really a solution, but only a temporary fix.
I doubt that I am the only one using it, so I'll wait awhile to see.
