Re: no USB boot option

Perhaps skipik thinks that creating a bootable usb flash-stick that successfully boots up a Solus session, is the same as installing Solus. If that is the understanding, it is incorrect. A properly and fully installed Solus does not need a USB flash-stick plugged in at all. The Solus image is instal...

Re: Getting my wireless WIFI to work!

Re: Laptop graphics card and video playback problems

I would suggest to try Solus Gnome edition. I've read the Gnome3 Desktop handles & eliminates video issues such as you have described.

Re: Linux drivers for hardware installed on my new system

Well, I've seen this countless times on several distro forums . . . folks new to Linux still think & operate with a Windows mindset. A really good, highly compatible PC will not even require ANY drivers to be installed for graphics, sound, keyboard/mouse/pad, wireless. One learns to do the homework ...

Re: Wifi Hardware Lock on HP Elitebook 8540W

It might be helpful for forum readers to see results of "inxi -Fx" . . . .are the indicator lights the same after a toggle and reboot? Does wifi and switch work in Live OS mode? Does it work in another LiveOS Distro such as Ubuntu Mate or Solus Mate?

Re: Wifi driver rtl8723be

Or just switch to a Linux ready device for about $10.00 USD. For a laptop, I like the Panda Ultra 150 b/g/n as it the same size as mouse RF dongle.
