Duplicate strings/translations due to language + country combos?

Hi! I've been fixing a number of translations to Swedish for Budgie Desktop. Quite a bit of "särskrivningar", a surprisingly common, yet glaring issue with translations made by Swedes (we never write e.g. "cookie cutter", always "cookiecutter")! While doing so, I discovered there were actually two c...

Re: Getting h.264 support in Opera

Vivaldi is in kind of the same situation here, so here's the instructions for that one, confirmed to work to enable h.264 with at least Vivaldi 1.11 although maybe requiring re-application if there's a Vivaldi update, and with no guarantees for the future. Close Vivaldi. I felt like being bold so I ...

Re: What do you use Solus for?

Mostly browsing and coding (HTML+JS, Python, Go), including working against my Vultr instance. I'd really like to migrate more towards Solus for my photography workflow. I think I'll make some tries here to get something going. Currently on Lightroom on Windows, but I'm really just using it as a pho...

Hello, Solus!

I already introduced myself with support questions, but thought a friendlier way might be to at least complement it with a proper introduction! I'm a guy from northern Sweden who first got started with computers with a VIC 20, then soon after a ZX Spectrum 48K. They were kinda popular in Europe, I t...

Re: Solus suddenly stopped booting

Thanks for the quick and accurate support here! It was indeed an issue where I had run out of EFI partition space as the default partition size for this that Windows 10 uses is 100 MB, and even if I had Solus installed on a physically different drive, it still used this EFI partition. There were aro...

Re: Solus suddenly stopped booting

OK, since posting I notice the modules are listing kernel 4.12.9, and the general system info 4.12.8. Hmm, not sure what's up with that mismatch.

Re: Solus suddenly stopped booting

Hmm, I think the kernel is current? Fil 2017-08-28 21 29 07.jpeg However I did install graphics card drivers -- not intentionally, but as part of a general system update. I'm using an NVIDIA GTX 970. I'm using the closed source / NVIDIA drivers and not nouveau. Could that perhaps be it? If there are...

Re: Solus suddenly stopped booting

I ran this and it did detect three broken packages which it reinstalled, but upon rebooting it hadn't helped. I then ran sudo eopkg check | grep Broken ... and the packages are still broken. :( I then selectively tried to reinstall only the broken python package to illustrate: Fil 2017-08-28 20 27 3...

Solus suddenly stopped booting

I'm not sure what has happened, but Solus suddenly stopped booting like it use to. I can see the Solus welcome text in text/console mode flash by, then the screen is cleared and I'm left with a blinking cursor in the upper left corner. I can press Ctrl+Alt+Del to reboot, but the same thing just happ...
