Re: Device Driver Manager (DDM) - help needed [upd:22-12-14]

The freeze strikes back. With DDM 2.1.1. Fortunately, as in the past, on one computer only. Unfortunately, on the stable SolydK64-201506 . 1. On Acer with AMD Radeon HD 6650M, where DDM has never had a problem, the 2.1.1 contunues to work perfectly. Launched from menu, systemsettings, terminal insta...

Open the file with Kate. The first section in it is called [Favorites]. It looks like: [Favorites] FavoriteURLs=/usr/share/applications/kde4/konsole.desktop,/usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop,/usr/share/applications/kde4/dolphin.desktop,/usr/share/applications/kde4/systemsettings.desktop,/home/...

Re: Can't read the screen on solydk64_201506.iso LiveUSB

hmm... there's nothing better than good old rock-solid dd to deal with solydxk isos. it prepares perfectly running usb sticks. is it possible that you have extracted the stick from usb slot before the device was synced? it's very good practice to force syncing after dd has the job done: sudo dd if=....

i'd like to avoid to make a stupid question to such a well-known person like you are, but... did you check the md5 sum of the downloaded files? sorry for asking it.

Re: Can't read the screen on solydk64_201506.iso LiveUSB

that sounds strange. i can't even remember when last time i used a dvd to install solydxk. it perfectly installs from normal usb sticks. last two installations from usb sticks were done some hours ago, using recently released solydk and solydx images. both systems are up and running without a problem.

Re: [POLL] Responsive theme for these forums

...what about Metro. It still looked good with your settings:.. I don't know how they did it, but Metro does not loose any of its icon even when I use national fonts and don't allow web pages to use their own fonts instead of mine. All icons are still there, perfectly readable and usable. And work ...

Re: Device Driver Manager (DDM) - help needed [upd:22-12-14]

I tested DDM 2.1.0 on a third computer. This one has pure, non-hybrid AMD Radeon HD 6650M (Whistler) graphics. Both DDM versions were tested - non patched and with the 20-bytes patch applied. Those that uses f.read(20) method. DDM was launched from menu. The result is identical and positive in both ...

Re: Device Driver Manager (DDM) - help needed [upd:22-12-14]

The same patch was applied on the working (stable) computer. The one which has never had serious problems with DDM, no freezes. After modifying the ddm.py program with sed and checking that it uses the new f.read(20) function, the hacked DDM 2.1.0 was started from the menu. Everything went well. Bum...

Re: RSS/Feed Reader alternative

if a site really has no rss feed, then the only alternative to some feed reader (for me) is Update Scanner 3.2.0. it's not a feed reader, but no other tool can monitor better any changes on any web page. i'm using it to track, for example, any minimal change on SolydXK download site, and to monitor ...

Re: Device Driver Manager (DDM) - help needed [upd:22-12-14]

Know what? It's easy for you to hack your own code on your own distro :D . But why your DDM doesn't work for me in siduction? After applying the hack on the virgin freezing system, DDM 2.1.0, launched from menu, worked perfectly. Bumblebee is installed in the usual very polished way. The freezing sy...

Re: Device Driver Manager (DDM) - help needed [upd:22-12-14]

Schoelje, wait a minute, please! I was applying the hack on the system probably already damaged by the previuos DDM runs. Will restore the virgin system and redo the test. It'll take 2 minutes.

Could you please run this command on a freezing installation... done on the freezing system. 1. ddm 2.1.0 2. checked that the /usr/lib/ddm/ddm.py file is effectively changed: yes, it has log = f.read(20) now. 3. launching ddm from menu 4. the system freezes immediately :( won't apply the hack on th...

I have some old versions in the dev directory, do they have the same problem?.. Yes, they do. Unfortunately. The situation here is, from bad to worst: a) 2.1.0 and 2.0.7 <-- less troubles b) 2.0.8 c) 2.0.9 <-- most troubles No one install anything from menu. 2.0.7 and 2.1.0 leave the system alive f...

Re: Device Driver Manager (DDM) - help needed [upd:22-12-14]

As I'm completely agree with Zill's point of view about low priority regarding interface and theming changes :) , i'll postpone the Metro studies. Will try to investigate about DDM more in details again.

Re: Device Driver Manager (DDM) - help needed [upd:22-12-14]

I'm afraid that one old problem is back again in DDM 2.1.0. It was already solved once, and was not present in many DDM releases, starting the 2.0.3. For the first time I note it again in 2.1.0. I'm speaking about a total computer freeze while running DDM 2.1.0. The problem is discussed earlier in m...

...I see, by not allowing embedded fonts you see those weird looking icons... Exactly. That's what I was trying to explain speaking about national fonts used instead of page's default ones. That are namely page's fonts, encoded in their source. The same strange icons are popping up in all browsers ...
