The icon displays a thumbnail as a preview for the file, and whenever I change the file, the picture changes accordingly. The problem is that it also ... thumbnail or to anchor its position to the text position. Is this doable? If so, where and how does one submit this kind of request?

Posted by mnl On my Solus installation network is lagging, repeatedly I first thought it had to do with the wifi driver, but changing that, improved nothing Update: I found the solution: it had to do with /etc/nsswitch.conf It was like this: hosts: files ... mdns4 And I changed it to: hosts: files dns Then the network lags were gone! Apparently something with mdns was causing this lagging

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 sei Solus OS is One of the best Linux distribution ever made. But sometimes i feel it don't have much support for researchers. Wish developer add some simulators for education purpose. It's my humble respect to Solus OS developers to add tool for education ... bad when i have to run Ubuntu just because they make it easy for students to install those tools. Please sir, add those tools.
