New Dell Laptop, some help with what may not work.

Hi all, I just ordered a new Dell laptop (it was on sale from Dell). I'm wondering what, if anything, I may be facing problems with when I try to put Solus on it. Here's the relevant specs: Dell Inspiron 3168 (Inspiron 3000-11 2-in-1) CPU: Intel m3-7Y30 (Apollo Lake) GPU: Intel HD 615 Wifi is one of...

Re: libreoffice sdbc

I also use PostgreSQL as my preferred database. I'm not currently using LibreOffice Base for anything, so I didn't notice (yet). But, point is, there are at least 2 of us. I don't have a system powerful enough to compile LibreOffice at this time either. My thing is, if you provide that little bit e...

Re: Since last update today the panel is very big and seems not to have a border

As the new ISO 2 Unstable was published on patroen i created a bootable usb stick. Today i testet the panel behaviour in this ISO. There it works fine. Also the animations are smoother than on my real installation. But ok. So i just added a new panel to the desktop and deleted the old one. Now it w...

Re: Putty program

Hi Michele. When i started using Solus i thought i needed "Putty" to connect to my Raspberry Pi, that's how i used to connect to it. I found out that if you need to make a ssh connection to a device on your network, you can do that from the terminal. What you need is your device ip address, port nu...

Re: Buying a new laptop

Hello, you wise people! I'm quite new to Linux, but I try to learn. After messing around with all the distros , I found that I really like Solus. It just seems to... work right out of the box. Also, Budgie feels like a SOLID desktop, and it will just be better. Tbh, only 'extra' I've installed is P...

Re: Focus on Budgie and have it on well established distros as the main focus of the project

I've used Debian. I've used Red Hat. I tried Ubuntu as a desktop. I use FreeBSD on my servers. I want a desktop operating system.

Re: Recent spam

Gumby, I can't say I understand why people spam as much as they do and I don't agree with it. But I do see some commonalities in some of the forum spam I've had to deal with in the past. From a "reason" perspective: Link spam (sticking links to other sites) is often not about getting you to click on...
