Posted by Fennyfox Taskbar set to left side, minimal, MATE Dark theme. when accessing notifications, the pop out on the right side containing notifications stays stagnant, but when clicking to the next tab marked at Applets the tool gradually crawls over the entire screen like ... liposuction. Is there a fix or patch known for this? can we put it on a diet? its creepy how it crawls across.

Posted by HC_Sam Hey guys, I was wondering if there was a tutorial for doing a clean dual boot install of Windows and Solus? Brand new install for both, working from a blank drive, wanting to boot into UEFI mode. I run a Dell XPS 15 9550, and I want to partition and dual boot off a NVME drive, if it’s relevant. Thanks!
