Re: Breakages and News tracking Debian Testing

For the last 3 days I haven't been able to get past the splash screen, to even use a console. Until just now! I got a failsafe mode to boot to a state that I can use a terminal.
I'll try an upgrade and download xfce4 while I am at it. :?

Re: Breakages and News tracking Debian Testing

I have the same thing going on. Solyd K tracking testing and now plasma 5 will not load. Unfortunately I do not have an alternate DE in that partition. It is going to be a job figuring out how to fix it :twisted:

Re: Breakages and News tracking Debian Testing

Maybe skip this month's iso and wait for the gcc5 transition to complete also. I can imagine that will cause some upset also.
And yes, that Plasma5 wallpaper is ghastly.

Re: [POLL] Responsive theme for these forums

I am enjoying the new forum theme on both mobile and desktop, I'd rate it a considerable improvement on the desktop, and enormously better on mobile devices.

Re: Breakages and News tracking Debian Testing

@belze: Thank-you for this. My system was practically unusable, but this info brought it back. I'm now running a functional SolydK with plasma5 and Frameworks5. The only pause I had was apt-listbugs reporting bugs against plasma-nm, kfscreen6, and some others that i can't remember. Relying on my bac...

Re: vlc playback is speckled

It was there when I loaded up so I quit it from the icon, then ran updatemanager in the terminal, after it refreshed and said "System is Up to Date" I closed the window, ran another command in the terminal, then closed it, and started updatemanager from ...

Re: Strange behavior of dolphin find search

Thanks for that link Snap
I was having the same problem but the link was the clue to fixing it.
First backup baloofilerc. Then add

Code: Select all

[Basic Settings]
   Indexing-Enabled=true
To the beginning of the file & save it. Logout and back in.
This worked in 2 SolydK installs.
