Re: ASUS Laptop, No Sounds, what's step one?

I would suggest that if previewing Solus in Live Mode has no sound issues - - drop to a terminal window (ctrl+alt+t) and run Alsamixer again. This time, note the settings carefully and jot down the values. It's been YEARS since I've had sound issues in Linux, but I recall if you see "MM" for a chann...

Re: GRUB boot from ISO file

Yes it will - - if you are installing Solus using the Legacy Bios/Mbr mode and not UEFI.

Re: USB 2.0 issue and squestion about scrolling

A couple of suggestions that may help: > a usb 3 "hub" would allow for multiple devices to be plugged in (including usb2 devices) > sometimes the bios or uefi settings have options for usb connectivity . . suggest you look for that > to verify, this is not a hardware issue - - you can plug in a usbv...

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?
