Re: How to avoid laptop to suspend when close lid?

It would be helpful to know which DE you're using (i.e., Gnome, KDE, MATE, etc.) before answering. Thanks!

Re: Multiple DE

More or less. For example, I wanted to try out Cinnamon. I downloaded the packages (and dependencies) from Sulfur; logged out and viola! Cinnamon was available as a DE in the sessions drop-down in KDM. It's easy! :D If you don't like the new DE, simply go back to Sulfur (or Rigo, whatever package ma...

Re: Multiple DE

You can have any number of DEs installed. Simply select the one you want from the logon screen (e.g., KDM or GDM) before typing your password.

Re: Desktops - Show Off Your Desktop

@ sqlpython

Your desktop is really cool looking. By chance what icon theme are you using and where might I download it? Thanks! :D

Here's my latest desktop for comparison!

Re: Latest update wrecked the system

Hi you don't need to be in recovery mode to run commands. When the X server fails to load due to a borked nvidia driver, simply press ALT+F1 to switch to a terminal. Log in and run commands as usual. The Internet should work in that case.

Re: KWIN: I can't change 'composite mode' to OpenGL

I had this same problem a few weeks ago and an update to KDE fixed it. Are you running standard Sabayon (e.g., weekly) or Limbo? If the former, then switch to Limbo and do (as root) an equo update && equo upgrade and see if that doesn't fix the problem.

Re: kde does not show an option to unlock the screen.

Okay, sorry dude. Does this also happen with the 'simple locker' or just the regular screen locker? Please advise. Thank you!

Re: kde does not show an option to unlock the screen.

This can happen if you're using Oxygen-transparent or Qtcurve transparency enabled. You need to add an exception for the greeter in order to prevent the black screen. Do the following: Open the Oxygen Transparent settings (click "Configure..." next to the widget style). Click "Exceptions..." and add...

A couple of issues with lightDM display manager

I recently switched from KDM to lightdm as my display manager because I want to play around with designing some cool Sabayon themes for it. I've noticed there are a couple of issues that I wonder if anyone else has had or could offer some insight on how to fix. First, lightdm takes noticibly longer ...
