The only rep I could find was megatools (which I downloaded through the application center ... do: I have a directory on MegaSync that I want to have on my computer, so it syncs all the time. Kind regards, braindrain

Posted by: Jacob I usually use Unetbootin for creating Live USB in Ubuntu. I never used ubuntu startup disk creator. I was very much comfortable with UNetbootin. In windows I used Rufus. I remember somewhere I read like Solus do not support UNetbootin. I know ... command to create it. I do hate writing command. Anybody please suggest a good graphical utility to create Solus Live USB from Linux.

Posted by noly So, I’ve been trying to change the default login background. I’ve ran across posts that say to use LightDM GTK Settings app, however that does not work since slick greeter is used instead of GTK greeter. I’ve also look it /etc/lightdm and those files had nothing about the background image info in them.

Posted by cryptopacker I notice that when I cut/copy and paste any file from one location to another, there is no progress bar at all. Right now, I'm copying a large set of files, over 100GBs, to another hard disk and the only way I can check the progress is to look ... I can install so that Files shows the progress? I know I can use the command line, but I'd prefer a GUI solution. Thank you.

I am not a fan of Global menu. But still there were occasions I found it useful. Seeing the default top panel layout of Solus, I strongly feel that Global menu can be easily integrated to Solus. Is there any such development or planning going on for implementation of global menu in solus?
