I have installed Solus 3.9999 Budgie on Lenovo Ideapad 320. This is a dual boot machine with Windows 10 Home. I have installed rEFInd in the EFI partition and I can boot into Windows fine. When I try to boot into Solus, my passwords are not working.

Posted by laurynas Hello, I’m having issues with WiFi under load. If I download from steam without limiting the speed or watch a Youtube video my wifi just stops working and I have to reconnect to my WiFi even though it shows up as connected. Using my phone’s tethering to access the internet works completely fine, but I don’t want to have phone attached to my laptop all the time. Any suggestions?

Posted by Pertos56 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!

Posted by: jace Hey there, I have an old HP Pavilion DV6 running latest Solus. A few months back I was running Solus and CAELinux as dual boot. I decided to reformat and go for the latest Solus afresh - but since I did that, the wi-fi enable/disable hardware button refuses ... ? I know on some other Linux distros you need to modify some files in the /etc/ folder to force the wi-fi on? Thanks!

Posted by YoniV Not sure if this is the place, but I'll try: I have on my desktop a link to a spreadsheet. 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 PaulKBSR I just installed Solus 3. On reboot all I get is the grub> prompt. I'm using gpt and efi. I have 3 disks. sda is a windows disk, sdb is a partitioned linux disk and sdc is a partitioned storage disk. I'm not as familiar with grub ... out my EFI partition of old linux installs. Now only Windows is seen and starts. Haven't looked at EFI partition again yet but will and report.
