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!
