Re: What changes should I be aware of when switching from Ubuntu-based distro?

Why ditch one for the other? You can easily multi-boot (on same HDD) or even better, get a SanDisk portable usbv3 SSD and use a live install flash-stick to do a "full install" to the portable SSD. (if unsure how to do, there are tutorials on youtube). Then you can try Solus while still having Xubunt...

Re: Epson Stylus DX6000 not detected

Perhaps this is worth looking at: http://www.turboprint.info/printer_Epso ... X6000.html

Another option is to try CUPS again and just use the DX 5000 for your selection (I would try this option first, as the TurboPrint drivers involve some cost)

Re: Windows 10 update overrides Linux

Good deal! These devices (especially if using usb3) are amazing. Much better and safer than traditional one drive dual-boots. When Windows 10 wants to do a massive "rolling update" (hah) . . . just unplug the SSD.

Re: Windows 10 update overrides Linux

Windows 10 update behaves in a more civilized manner if a secondary OS on same GPT disk is installed in UEFI mode with bootloader in 500 MiB EFI partition. If you want to retain Legacy BIOS/MBR partioning . . I would recommend an external usbv3 SSD such as: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9nojCJSrM6...

Re: Looking to purchase a new laptop (Recommendations)

There are many choices here. I do recommend System76 based on personal experience with the Galago laptop and the Sable All-in-One desktop (no longer available). https://linuxpreloaded.com/ My Galago runs every day 7/365 for at least 12 hrs daily X 3 years. Zero issues or problems. But the edge Syste...

I use the small nano sized adapter (panda ultra 150 b/g/n). Works great on all my distros including ubuntu based and Solus.

Sorry I can't help re the sound card . . . is there built in sound on motherboard if the card is pulled?

Re: I'm getting a frozen screen with a blinking dash after booting.

Upon turning the PC on . . . begin toggling the space until the boot menu appears. Then can use the instructions for adding nomodeset again and after, adding the command to update the boot manager so nomodeset persists.

What are the specs for your system, especially the graphics sub-system?

Solus Updater no longer reports completion of update

A couple years ago, the Solus updater app had a bug whereby it would not report the finish of the update process. So, on my laptop (Acer Travelmate B117 (All Intel)), the actual update did/does complete , but the user screen with the green checkmark and verbiage indicating update complete does not r...
