Re: SolydXK System Settings (GUI for solydxk-system)

SolydXK System Settings produces conflicting entries in /etc/apt/sources.list I was setting up a VM of SolydK-ee this morning and used SolydXK System Settings to choose the fastest mirrors. After making my choices and clicking save mirrors I noticed a faster mirror for Debian, so I selected that one...

Re: Launching a program by start that needs «sudo» password

I have been curious about this myself, so this morning I investigated. The man page for visudo states that it provides some "sanity checking" when editing the sudoers file. This sounded like some syntax checking so I did a small test. In a graphical text editor, opened with elevated privileges I rem...

Re: New ISOs in ce/testing

There is no /usr/bin/apt and I couldn't find anything useful in the logs. I removed the package from the archive & then reinstalled but that was no help. The package is marked as an alpha, and Debian has a boatload of bugs against it in Sid(?). That is a far as I can go today, I'll play around some ...

I opened several apps with no problem except for LibreOffice which would not open in either live session. After installation to virtual disk I found: For SolydX Installed several...

I did the tests on metal and did not use a separate /home. In both of those installs the left (Email Section) is properly localized. But, the right hand section (calendar) is all in English, Today, Tomorrow, Upcoming (5 days). Perhaps this is the correct display for that section, I do not know. I st...

Re: SolydX-9 - Setting up Desktop Background

I also have the same problem as Matt. This system is SolydX_9 upgraded from 8 via Schoelje's script. It is impossible to change the wallpaper to one in a different folder by using 'Desktop Settings'.

Re: Updatemanager broken during update -SOLVED

I had the same problem this morning (about 8 hours ago), in both SolydX and SolydK-ee. I thought I had it fixed by purging and re-installing as Schoelje posted but I just did another du in SolydX stable and got this: Calculating upgrade...

Thanks for the reply Frank. Both of my systems were set up with solydxk-ee sources and now have the -9 adjustments package. The main reason for my post was in case losing the X logo and changing the wallpaper was not an intended result. It is easily fixed of of course but it was quite unexpected. Al...

Re: Breakages and News tracking Debian Testing

I have SolydX-ee running in a virtual machine. This morning I did a d-u normally, about 88 packages upgraded. About an hour later I absentmindedly performed another d-u. This time several new packages and 149 upgraded. Strange, but there were no removals listed and it is a vm so I went ahead and per...
