@JoshStrobl Thank you for the info. I have reached out to them about flatpak but it seems they don't care as I've never gotten a follow-up response. I'm never developed with flatpak but I can look into it. Guess I'll stick with their OpenVPN files for now. Just a question about your response: If the Third Party Repository is legacy, how will Chrome be provided in the future? I don't believe I've seen a flatpak or snap version of it outside of Endless OS's repo.

That mode set alone can take 3 seconds on some video cards, particularly ATi, which stupidly sets the mode several times over in repetition.
I always wondered what was causing this! Getting rid of the video mode set delay would be amazing, since it really does increase my boot time by 4-5 seconds.

@DataDrake It combines the best features of zsh (bash history and aliases) with the beautiful UX of fish. It's really just changing the default appearance of zsh and adds a few features OOTB (syntax highlighting and a better way to view bash history).
I'm still unaware of what the correct way to change the frequency of fsck on Solus is if that's what you mean. This command does not actually change the frequency of fsck running though it does on other distros (as I said in the post).

I just noticed this was happening. I hope it gets resolved before the next snapshot/release ISO.

Can confirm on my laptop running Solus. I wondered what the issue was. I'm on the latest linux-current kernel. Disabling and re-enabling wifi through the keyboard prevents the issue for about half an hour. Seems to be extremely random. It's only been occurring for about a week now (maybe last update on Friday? IDK).

Firefox is good enough. Brave is for the extremists :)

Yes, the issue still persists. Just tested it again.

Fair enough. Could this being considered for sol?

The repos still haven't synced... Any issues?

Derp. Sometimes common logic eludes me! Thanks!

If only I could change the FS of my root partition during installation... I used F2FS on Arch as my root FS as I have a SSD. I'm sad Solus only gives you one choice. I know it's for stability, but I'd like to choose something as important the the FS type. Hope the commit succeeds!

@JoshStrobl And it is a great desktop experience! Nothing against it at all! :)
Not sure if this makes sense, but since Budgie Desktop is undergoing a complete overhaul and transitioning to Qt/Wayland, why spend time integrating GNOME 3.26 when it will be replaced in the coming months? Or is the GNOME stack used outside of Budgie?

Because this is now offered as a Snap, will this be included when the SC updates to use snaps/flatpaks natively?

@glent54 Thank you so much! For people wanting the command to install Brave, it's
sudo snap install brave --beta
--beta can also be --edge. They are the same version currently, but I assume the --edge branch is updated more frequently.
There is a stable branch available on GitHub.

I also wanted to confirm this bug. Is this command able to fix/related to the issue?

@JGH1000 I installed the raw x64 binaries as stated at the bottom of this page, after installing libgnome-keyring, and low and behold, the mighty Brave Browser is up and running! Thank you! If I knew how to package this, I would, as it seems simple. Works like a charm!

From their website, and from my experience of using Brave, the difference appears to be in approach, methodology, and development team experience.
Really? That's awesome! I'll give it a go then. Perhaps it could be fully packaged and integrated soon... Great news! I also like the introduction of the ETH blockchain to Brave. Looks like they're really creating a new browsing experience (earn money by watching safe ads). Everyone wins!

I just tested it today and it is still not switching audio to my headphones. Is there anything I can do?
Dec 20 2016
How was this fixed? I don't have this issue, but for others it might be nice to have your solution posted.
Ah, my mistake. I will remember that from now on!

Actually I'm not sure what you did incorrectly. I suppose a more organized format would have been better though such as:
Because no compiling needs to be done (it runs out of box), how hard is this to package? I don't know how to, but it does not seen to be difficult.
I'm not sure why Solus doesn't include older software... my guess is for security. Personally I think they should include older software but add a warning to it when installing!
Nov 28 2016
@ikey Perhaps after Budgie 11 is implemented and you (or some of the team members) have some time to spare. Solus has always been fast, and I think it can only get faster. Didn't you have Solus boot in under 2 seconds at some point?!
Well, like I said, it's not slow.
sudo systemd-analyze Password: Startup finished in 949ms (kernel) + 2.592s (initrd) + 15.976s (userspace) = 19.518s
It's a Dell Inspiron 1764, about 5 years old, so this is a very impressive speed!
@DataDrake I understand. Do you know of any similar software? I'm trying to reduce boot time on my grandmother's old laptop (which Solus runs very well on, but it could be better I think!). Or, how would I go about compiling it? I installed cmake, make, gcc, g++, and followed the instructions provided, to no avail. I kept getting a CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER error. Sorry, I'm trying to learn how to compile and any help would be appreciated!

The misspelled package is also 1 MB larger than the correct version... yet they are (essentially) the same version.
Nov 24 2016
@theSoenke Well, the GO version will be ready fairly soon, I imagine. If you want to wait, that is fine, or if the extra python libraries are small and easy enough to package, then the current python version would be fine as well. Either way, I'm glad OpenBazaar will eventually be on Solus!
Nov 23 2016
@theSoenke Wow, that's great! I suspect the client is more important for the majority of people, so that's amazing that you packaged it. Of course, it requires the server though! I think waiting for the go version of the server to be finalized is fine. I'm not familiar with packaging software... Why is Python more difficult, just out of curiosity? Thanks for working on this!
@testmonkey Yes, I would love that feature! Plus it would essentially fix my audio issue, save muting the front speakers! Thanks

I would like this as well. I've never been able to configure my VPN to work within the Solus Network Manager, though I can run it just fine through the command line (openvpn). An alternative would be wonderful.
@tristan957 Yes, I changed it soon after posting the comment. Also, the question of why this hasn't been included by default was never addressed. This is a very common shortcut on almost all distros. Why hasn't Solus added this already?
Nov 9 2016
@Shadow53 I'm still relatively new to coding and Linux in general. I'm only in my teens and have been using "easy" Linux distros (Ubuntu, Puppy, Mint, Manjaro, etc.) for the past two years. So I'm finally learning basic programming--mostly python--and trying to get better at Linux.
Nov 7 2016
I thought going into the keyboard settings and adding a custom shortcut with the command "cd usr/bin && ./gnome-terminal" and assigning the CTRL+ALT+T keys would work, but it doesn't... Anyone know why?
