Re: How to disable touchpad in SolydK?

But in Menu search be very careful to select the synaptics item and not touchpad.
So, doing a search in the applications window for synapti.... I see "touchpad" and "synaptics", shose "synaptics", obvious stuff here, chose "disable when mouse plugged in", worked perfectly, thanks!

:D

How to watch Netflix no SolydK?

Saw some really helpful how-to videos on youtube for watching Netflix on Ubuntu, etc. Have not found any for SolydK. sometimes I find that UBUNTU software works on SolydK, but the screen shots on the videos I was watching clearly show stuff being downloaded from an UBUNTU repository. Any ideas on ho...

Having trouble with Rosegarden after installation

I was able to install Rosegarden using "sudo apt-get install rosegarden", but when running it, I hear no sound.

Other audio programs do play sound, so interested if someone has encountered this, and might know a fix.

Thanks

Re: Audacity, installing

I'm now very confused. I have no clue why it didn't work, you changed nothing, and now the install worked. oh, and actually, I did not scrutinize it closely, it may have said something else.... it probably did since it worked after that. I had to restart my computer since rosegarden was jammed and ...

Re: Audacity, installing

I may have spoken too soon. Rosegarden loads and the main window is up on the desktop, but nothing works.... these are the same kind of non-sense things I encountered the last time I was fooling around with Linux. I am not quitting, just saying

Re: Audacity, installing

SWEET!!

I entered this " inxi -r " and got the same screen as you

then re-entered this " sudo apt-get install audacity "

and it worked.

So, the learning curve has not changed much since I last messed around with linux. I like it though, but what does "inxi -r" do?

Re: Audacity, installing

As you can see, it did not work form the console. I also DID find it in the applications manager, but when I clikc on install, it shows a progress bar, then progress bar goes away, and it all just sits there like nothing happened.
