Re: ufw-gtk puzzle

But is an usable polkit agent running?

However, my suspicion is this is some sort of issue with pkexec and so polkit. The graphic interface/frontend for ufw was working fine befo...

ufw-gtk puzzle

ufw-gtk is acting up. Until recently ufw frontend worked perfectly from the gnome applications menu. Now nothing happens when it is called from the gnome menu. Checking its properties, it gives: pkexec /usr/sbin/ufw-gtk this is surely correct. I can get the gtk front end if I run from console as roo...

Re: No sound on 0AD

But, hold there... having looked under /etc/portage/package.use/00-sabayon.package.use I notice under in the entry for 0AD that no sound USE flag is enabled.

No sound on 0AD [Solved]

I am running Sabayon Linux amd64 15.06 with Linux sabayon 4.0.0-sabayon kernel. 0Ad version: version: 0.0.17_alpha installed via equo. I have this nagging suspicion this may have something to do with OpenAL and/or P...
