I noted that the Solus installation offered me only a very limited choice of keyboards and languages and most importantly no UK-keyboard option, which surprised me rather. I wondered if I had downloaded an incorrect version perhaps?
Also as I'm running in VirtualBox in order to try Solus first, I wanted to install the VirtualBox guest additions, since I have no other means of copying files to and from shared virtual folders. However, when I looked at the software centre and chose the VirtualBox Guest Additions, with the required dependencies also, it didn't appear to have made any difference to my test platform and I still couldn't take advantage of the full-sized screen, nor shared folders. I'm doubtful the guest additions installed correctly in fact, although it appears now in the software centre with the option to "uninstall". Any others have this experience, as it's a bit of a deal breaker. Thanks.
Many thanks kyrios, apologies for the omitted screen examples. I attached three installation screen images with my post, but only the 3rd image appears in the post. Below is the first image. Thank you for the pointers on VirtualBox, I'll take a look at that and doubtless get much further with that, from your help.kyrios wrote: ↑Tue Jun 12, 2018 2:29 pmI think the regional settings/keyboard are the gnome ones. Could you go back and show the keyboard selection screen ?
Regarding virtualbox, you have to install virtualbox-guest-current and you also need to add your user as member of the vboxsf group in the Solus VM. You'll probably find this page useful.
Yes! That's it thanks very much. I've never seen that approach before, to only show part of a list until clicking somethiing! I never saw that icon, amazing. In fact my colleague was having a try with this at the weekend and he didn't see it either. Anyway, thanks very much.
