Re: Bonkers Gnome

I wonder how many new users have given up on Gnu/Linux after being presented with a bloated Gnome DE with it's high hardware requirements I'm sure there are many, but rescuing 20 year old Windows/OEM hardware with 5% of the computing power of a modern cell phone is hardly the goal, and should not b...

Re: Bonkers Gnome

Would any Gnome users or DDs care to join the discussion? The first actual Linux DE I ever used was Suse with KDE, which at the time (circa 1999) was impressive but not what KDE is today. I was an electrical/engineer at the time working mostly on IBM workstation/mainframe software, and more and mor...

Re: WIFI installation

Actually @sunrat brcm drivers work for the dv6000 card which is probably the onboard pci wifi card in this lap.

If they don't work right away, card is not recognized, take the battery out of the lap and run on power cord only so you can unplug the power. Plug back in and then try install.

Re: I need a system call to change the desktop background

gsettings set org.mate.background picture-filename /ddisk/f/scans/UpTrain.png You are on the right track here. Don't need a root terminal for this, and you have to make the script executable. If you are tying to an event like opening and closing another application you could set the script in a sys...

Re: I need a system call to change the desktop background

IN RESPONSE to an event Define the event and then write the script for the onboard wallpaper changer that will cue the change. Something like YAD should work OK for this without a window. You'll need the dialogue and the else if script, YES, I DO MEAN SYSTEM CALL Doesn't matter if you do. Your comp...

Re: Microsoft Defender detects Trojan:Linux/Multiverze: on ISO

Yeah... follow the yellow brick road Dorothy... MSDef identifies any fs with viable hardware and/or network detection not signed by MS or its given OEM partner as a threat, even extending as far as legally obtained firmware. They will laugh at you for submitting a Debian 11 ISO, and reply "don'...

Re: I need a system call to change the desktop background

To permanently set a default wallpaper you would need to compile the Mate schema over again using a glibc wrapper. Files can then be saved in schema or skel. I'm still confused with what you are trying to do. Mate comes with a wallpaper changer. https://guide.ubuntu-mate.org/#personalization You cou...

Re: Debian 11: Cinnamon Fallback after login.

When the installation was done did the installer finish the cleanup process and prompt you to remove the installation media?

As prompted at the end of your first failed boot journal you need to run fsck.

Re: problem with some stuff and proftpd after buster to bullseye full upgrade on server :(

I've tried to deinstall it fully,
This can cause remnant systemd services to point to /dev/null

Re: Howto: Installing and configuring Debian Buster

Does Gnome have Déjà Dup installed by default now?
Doesn't seem to be in Buster though most of its dependencies appear to be part of default core.

Re: Wayland Nvidia

See below: GDM3 GDM (GNOME Display Manager) will automatically use Wayland when supported, except when using the proprietary NVIDIA driver, in which case it will fall back to X11 due to instability. To use the X11 backend by default, uncomment the WaylandEnable=false line in the /etc/gdm3/daemon.con...

Re: I need a system call to change the desktop background

Is there a system call that says, switch to this desktop background now? I don't understand the question. Marco is GTK3 and Mate controls the default desktop background image on the root file system. Log in as root and replace the default background with your own renaming the replaced one old_defau...

Re: [Solved] wifi 5g no longer visible after update

This is a recurring problem with Linux with factors involving reboot, kernel, sudo, and network manager. I have heard that it is solved on 5.8 kernel and up with Ubuntu. It occurs less with Debian because many users (those who did not install sudo) download and then update offline. The next time you...
