Re: Cannot do anything to find location for bootloader

If you're not doing a full disk install it's possible you don't have an EFI partition.
As Daniel said, a screenshot of gparted would be useful.

Re: Booting Solus from external disk

Hi, It is possible to boot Solus from an external disk. That's what I did for my first install. Some details regarding the procedure in the official docs: https://solus-project.com/articles/installation/ In order to get to Solus I need to access UEFI - I suppose this is what you mean by "boot menu"....

Re: improve the forum

I concur with Kalin on at least some of the points. Stackoverflow is one of the most useful knowledge bases out there. I took a short look at Manjaro's forum and it seems professional. Take out the "Like" button and everybody's happy :) I'd also like to be able to search for the `nvidia` keyword on ...

Re: Terrible fonts in third-party apps

Hi. First off, TN panels from 2006 weren't that bad :) Second, can you post a screenshot of at least 3 apps, excluding browsers, where you have different fonts? Have you tried setting everything to English to see if language matters? Is it possible that your language is not well supported by the def...

Re: HP Laptop - Intel/Nvida Solus 3 Install?

`nouveau.modeset=0` is usually set as a temporary kernel param to allow for login. It will be reset on next reboot. To my understanding the param disables KMS for Nouveau, but I don't know much about it. Furthermore, once the proprietary Nvidia drivers are installed, Nouveau is no longer used so it ...

Re: HP Laptop - Intel/Nvida Solus 3 Install?

Very much now looking forward to Solus 4! Solus is a rolling release, kind of like Manjaro. If you have it installed and updated, you already have most of Solus 4. I don't get what makes you believe the new version will be a major breakthrough (even if only at install time). It looks like an increm...

Re: HP Laptop - Intel/Nvida Solus 3 Install?

I wouldn't have commented if I hadn't done this and worked. Nvidia Server Settings is installed. One of the first things I did to test Solus was to install Steam and some games. They work fine. https://solus-project.com/articles/hardware/proprietary-drivers/en/ You can also check what LDM sees and w...

Re: switch between jdk versions

Usually java apps listen to the JAVA_HOME environment variable. I have a bunch of JDKs unzipped in my home folder and set the envvars to the one I want. You may also need to set PATH similar to export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH This is to ensure the correct binary is executed from the command line or...

Re: New feature: native "Spotlight" clone from mac

There is an app called Albert in the repos. It has some of the features of Spotlight.
Don't know if that's the kind of thing you're looking for.

Re: Freeze when shutting down

I managed a different fix for my reboot issues with `nouveau.modeset=0`.
