Sorry for the delay: yes, this still works on my (current SolydK) system.

Re: Mounting .xsession-errors in tmp

@bin, Reading your OP, you might want to check this post: https://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=5536&p=54827&hilit=xsession-errors#p54827 .

Re: User name at login screen

For that you specify a line 'greeter-hide-users=true' in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
Good luck, Bas

Re: cups-pdf file names

hi Ilu, I tried to reproduce your problem, and I get indeed more or less the same behaviour - only the suffix is never quite as long as 'non-Linux-generated_files' and/or sometimes appear to contain other stringparts. Anyhow, I looked at /etc/cups/cups-pdf.conf, under Filename Settings uncommented T...

Re: Dead key <dead_abovering>

Pressing a dead key twice usually prints the 'undead' character but not always (for example with layout-us double-quote yields ¨ instead of "). What always works is to press <space> after a dead key. If you want to switch more keys to their dead version, search inside /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/de f...

bas_otten, your problem must have somehow resulted from your config.

I found that the problem with starting Libreoffice is related to apparmor being enabled by default on buster. Many pages on the net suggest that the problem has already been resolved in the latest Apparmor version, but clearly in an up-to-date buster system the problem still exists. I followed this ...

I did a fresh install of the nightly solydk_10_64_201908.iso (the one from aug 7th IIRC), and then ran my usual install and config scripts, to customize SolydK all the way to my liking. For this scenario, I so far, encounter the following issues, or at least things that draw attention: I miss the ab...

Re: SolydXK 10 Testing [updated: 31-07-2019]

If I may drop a suggestion: I always wonder why gpsd is a service that is installed and running by default. It seems to me to be something relevant only for specific devices. It is always the first resource-comsumer I purge. But perhaps you guys have a different approach for the case?

Re: Mysterius deletion of an .odt document - Recovery?

If you 'just' deleted the file from the Filemanager (as opposed to using rm from the commandline), please check the Trash first: your document might be easily recoverable from there. Edit: I see you used a Live session, so this is no option;-) If not, you could use the (preinstalled) 'testdisk' util...

Re: little joy

Older versions of Spotify, even appointed for Debian9, used to require the libssl-package from Debian8.
But with the more recent versions of Spotify, that requirement=limitation is finally gone!

apt-transport-https by default

After doing a fresh installation of SolydK lately, it occurred to me that when you add an https-repository to sources.list and import the corresponding key, doing 'apt-get update' just keeps hanging as if there is a network failure or the repository is unavailable. The actual cause, however, is that...

Re: Kate loads on bootup

Perhaps for some reason Kate is autostarted with this desktop-file as parameter, instead that it is executed which is probably the intention.
Is there anything present in the KDE autostart directories? Assuming this is SolydK9, can you show the output of
