Re: Unable to boot after hibernate

So, I'm not able to access my Solus laptop right now, but in a System76 Galago running Ubuntu 16.04.4 - - there is the option to tell the OS to do a controlled shut down when power level is critical. Does this option not exist in Solus? I find that letting a laptop run of of "juice" is similar to in...

Re: Don't understand how to install Brother print driver (DCP-7065)

Personally, that's exactly what I would do unless you really want to get into compiling. LOTS of reading and learning IT level skills (de-bugging yada yada). And then the finished driver may not give optimal performance. If you were to change kernels from LTS to Current (depending on the source code...

Re: Don't understand how to install Brother printer driver (DCP-7065)

Have you tried to install the printer using the CUPS Print Service? Take a quick look at adding the printer via the CUPS interface by adding this to your URL field in a browser (Firefox or Chromium/Chrome) "localhost:631" If the printer can be connected first (via usb), that would improve likelihood...

Re: Wifi adapter not turning on

Frankly, if it's my system I'm not wasting my time/energy on hardware issues like this. Too much work to do, and a few years back, when I was looking at a similar situation, I spent $10 usd on a Panda USB Wireless nano size dongle (like the RF for a wireless mouse). The Ralink based Ultra 150 b/g/n ...

If so, looks like Valve will have to issue a fix.

Re: Need help for a particular installation in Dual Boot

Back to original Poster . . . if you cannot get the USB to be recognized as a bootable device, perhaps you still have "secure boot" enabled. Try turning it off. Also - - be sure to check that Windows Fast Start is disabled also, as Windows hibernation can confuse Linux installers.

Re: Wifi not detecting on 4.14 and 4.12 kernel, fresh install

If the LTS (4.9) kernel with it's modules is working well, why not make that the standard kernel you're booting into? At least until the current kernel is fixed. This is not just a Solus issue. Of course, another solution is to use alternate wifi hardware such as the Panda devices: http://www.pandaw...
