Re: Package update (Telegram 2.3)

Add buster-backports to your sources and install telegram-desktop from there. The buster version is positively ancient. Backports currently has v2.6.1 which is the same version I have in Bullseye and it's working fine. https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=telegram-desktop And for future refer...

Re: Remove automatically installed dependency cycles

I wasn't sure what you meant by cycles in your first post, but it seems you mean dependencies. If you install a metapackage it will install a collection of dependencies. When you remove it, the dependencies don't get removed. So say you want to remove just one package dependency, first remove the me...

Re: RTL8723DE wi-fi adapter drops connection randomly

The part "firmware=N/A" sounds strange, but I am not really knowledgeable in this. Then I listed the modules and looked for the rtw modules: Do you have the package firmware-realtek installed? lsmod shows kernel driver modules ie. for the system. Firmware is a different thing, it is a tin...

Weird error and fix. Good it's working now.
I just had another look at your photos and now look ok. Maybe just Google Photos being a pain earlier.

Re: Delaying a startup app

Create a new text file and type () then leave it somewhere, done? Now open a terminal and execute (), is it the same? Leaving files resting on your hard drive is not like executing 'em, and music is not like non-free drivers! Stability is not measured by inches, stability is a broad term, and in th...

Probably you have unattended-upgrades package active. There was a security upgrade for systemd and the kernel on July 20.

Re: Necessary system fonts?

Many applications have dependencies (or recommends) for particular fonts. For example plasma-desktop package recommends fonts-noto so it was installed during my initial system installation of KDE Plasma. I like Noto fonts and use some as default, plus they include many alternative language fonts. Th...

What do you mean by "intrusive"? I've used Easytag for many years and once you get used to its quirks it is ... easy! :D Poor word choice? I simply meant that EasyTag seems to spend a longgggg time searching for and (?) indexing files. (I have quite a few for it to look through). Ah yes, ...

Re: packages in use

Two main requirements for a package to be in Debian repo are dependencies being available, and a maintainer. It appears the old maintainer no longer is supporting that package - https://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=nicolas%40debian.org You can try building the package from Github - https://gith...

Re: SOLVED Re: Renaming files in directory A with filenames in directory B

(If you strip the (e.g.) .mp3 extension from the listed filenames in the text file, there is no need to rename the output files) Good idea. You could add another pipe to sed to do it with a single command then: ls |grep mp3 | sed s/.mp3//g > filenames.txt I've been using puddletag for audio file ta...

You can uninstall the unattended-upgrades package if you must, but then you need to be diligent to check regularly for upgrades manually.

Re: Debian 10.10 won't boot after auto-remove

Back up your system while it is working! And do it regularly. I use fsarchiver from another system on the same machine or you could use a live USB/CD system. Takes about 5 minutes or less to restore instead of whatever hours it takes to do a full reinstall. Clonezilla is also commonly recommended al...

Check the unattended-upgrades package and its associated systemd units and timers.
