Re: 3 Steps Forward 2 Back: Progress and Frustrations with fundamental DE issues

The other thing I maybe should have mentioned right from the off - is that most of my hardware is now 10-15 years old! All reconstituted old corporate stock, all just stuff found lying around bascially. Dells and Lenovos, so they are decent machines, but I'm half 32bit half 64bit systems... time for...

Re: 3 Steps Forward 2 Back: Progress and Frustrations with fundamental DE issues

Okay fair enough I know very little so that was what I had read! - just trying to sift thru the reading to do and what is relevant and what is not! You may have read that kernel 4.15 is EOL upstream . That means the kernel developers (Linus & friends) won't be doing any more work on 4.15. KDE N...

Re: 3 Steps Forward 2 Back: Progress and Frustrations with fundamental DE issues

However I didnt try again after reading that that low latency kernel was an out of date kernel anyway... I wouldn't consider a kernel that is around a year old 'out of date'. It's not the latest, but not 'out of date' either. Certainly more up to date than the 3.something kernel you've been using i...

Re: 3 Steps Forward 2 Back: Progress and Frustrations with fundamental DE issues

I am really feeling that frustration of the KDE4-5ers... want KDE 4 back...! I didn't look back at all but I can see why you might be frustrated. I've never tried to set different wallpapers as I rarely see my desktop but you're right that there seems to be no way to. It runs smoothly for me though...

Re: 3 Steps Forward 2 Back: Progress and Frustrations with fundamental DE issues

I don't think Neon changed much at all, it's fairly vanilla as far as KDE goes (it's one of its aims). Are you sure you're not just seeing the kde4>kde5 differences? Kubuntu, KDE Mint or any other is going to be much the same, with maybe a slightly different config and/or colour scheme, assuming th...

Re: 3 Steps Forward 2 Back: Progress and Frustrations with fundamental DE issues

RaspberryPi: Actually one thing I was wrong about - the Pi has THREE video outputs. I knew about the I/O pins. But other than the HDMI the small jack is a composite video plus audio in one port. I had read that the Pi had composite video but I had then assumed that the model I had did not have compo...

Re: 3 Steps Forward 2 Back: Progress and Frustrations with fundamental DE issues

Glad you have everything working now though. Yes - before I wiped it for Mint yes I was having some good sessions! Got guitarix working beautifully! What was interesting while using NEON was that I didn't install another kernel, just used the generic, and there were 0 xruns the whole time. I though...

Re: 3 Steps Forward 2 Back: Progress and Frustrations with fundamental DE issues

... and the RapsberryPi is also a bit of a disaster atm! I installed Rasbian okay, then after some simple config set up it demanded a reboot... and it's never come back up since. It appears there is n HDMI issue that is EXTREMELY common, so common it is almost a feature of the PI, that has been know...

Re: 3 Steps Forward 2 Back: Progress and Frustrations with fundamental DE issues

Hi, I have the latest plasma, here you can definitely configure the desktop-number to be shown. There are two configs: Configure virtual desktops (where you can set the number of virtual desktops, for instance) and configure virtual desktop switcher (where you can configure the app that switches th...

First time I'v gone this far with a distro! So... I'm going to blank it and start again with a bit more of an idea of what I am doing... :) be back soon! :) Best of luck! I commend your tenacity, and I have confidence that it will work out better now that you have more experience. Thank you and yes...

Re: 3 Steps Forward 2 Back: Progress and Frustrations with fundamental DE issues

Before you install anything with apt it's recommended to update the package index with sudo apt update Update, then try sudo apt install linux-lowlatency again. I did try all that and got could not be found. However I didnt try again after reading that that low latency kernel was an out of date ker...

Re: 3 Steps Forward 2 Back: Progress and Frustrations with fundamental DE issues

I don't think you should need to do that, the default-settings package should have done that as far as I remember. You can check if you type 'groups' in to a terminal. If it lists audio then you are in the group. The second point is a combination of setting the start on boot option in cadence (choo...

Re: 3 Steps Forward 2 Back: Progress and Frustrations with fundamental DE issues

I have just installed NEON to make a fresh start :) And am in the process of setting up and tuning up :) Yes, obviously :mrgreen: Although the point I'm trying to make is that, unless you want to actually fiddle with the Linux system (and learn things doing so, which is very good, nothing against t...

Re: 3 Steps Forward 2 Back: Progress and Frustrations with fundamental DE issues

* Jack server is not started on boot, have to do that manually atm... What are you using to have firefox (youtube for instance) and vlc/mpv and such playing audio transparently w/o having to think about it ? A jack sink for pulse audio ? If so, then as I described previously jackd will be started f...
