I hope this long-standing problem will be fixed before the releasing of new Solus ISO

I am an old computer user who never used a computer without a firewall. I am very happy that my Espon L365 printer/scanner works ok in a WiFi mode, but not without firewall being turned off. I don't accept that in 2019 my firewall is not smart enough to understand that my Espon L365 printer/scanner is a friend and not an enemy :(

Hello, please reopen this task.
Few dasy ago I made a fresh, clean installation of Solus 3.9999-Budgie. With all defualt settings, Epson L365 scanning does not work. Once again I have the same problem: with using utsushi, scan itself is processing but no image is saved.
Furthermore, links for old but working version of utsushi and graphicsmagick are not working too: //(https://www.dropbox.com/sh/3jwzz3ncfm4unuf/AAD58e1cFr5QlY-UYEmvL-JDa/utsushi-3.32.0-4-1-x86_64.eopkg?dl=0 and https://www.dropbox.com/sh/j3yo6sm0epnm0ko/AAAsgifGnZaxfalF52o6VVu2a/graphicsmagick-1.3.26-12-1-x86_64.eopkg?dl=0)//.

crom5 added a comment to T7102: Solus keeps resetting brightness to maximal 100% on every restart.

Hello,
is the "nvidia.NVreg_EnableBacklightHandler=1" option now applied by default in Nvidia drivers within Solus repo?
Another question if remembering brightness setting is eventualy an unsolvable problem: it's been a long time since I added "xbacklight -dec 30" to autostart in Budgie. In order to avoid unnecessary and potentially harmful mixing of different stuff, since with "nvidia.NVreg_EnableBacklightHandler=1" brightness control works - is there any Nvidia command with which I can replace the xbacklight command? Thanks...

Thank you for your reply. This is the initial description of the problem: "since the update of nvidia-glx-driver to 410.X my system is using llvmpipe instead of the Nvidia driver" - could you please clarify if this problem is fixed now?

Shortly said, Richard Hughes at Red Hat is hoping for Linux users with NVMe drives to send him the id-ctrl identification data on their drives - this data will be useful so he knows what drives/models are most popular but also for how the firmware revision string is advertised across drives and vendors:

Users are still experiencing many problems in Windows. The fact is that they "accept" mentioned situation because it mostly happens on the complex level. On the other hand, Linux is very great on the complex level but it "sucks" on the very basic level - and that my friend for 7 billions of newbies is not acceptable at all.
Maybe you haven't noticed but we all expecting Formula 1; it is totally unimportant if Formula 1 problem on the very basic level is upstream or not if one leaves Formula 1 before he even learn what does upstream means.
PS. please don't get me wrong, I expressed this thoughts with best wishes and intentions - if Solus is already fantastic it doesn't mean that it can't be even better :)

During the last year, Solus OS has been developed into a very hospitable ambience to coexist with computing machines. Congratulations to the entire team. The moment we have all been excitingly waiting for quite a while is very very near. In my opinion, if new users must do a battle to get a simple basic things done - the big chance for Solus 4 to attract many new Internauts and become best of the best Linux distributions will be lost. You've been working very hard in our interest, please don't miss that great opportunity. So, in this sense here it is regarding simple basic operations... NR.1: some applications (normal/snap/flatpak) still can't be pinned to additional left panel (LibreOffice for example). NR.2: change of log-in screen background is inadmissibly complicated. NR.3: in many cases the screen brightness is still unadjustable (for example Nvidia without Optimus) in a normal way without complicating with 'xbacklight'. NR.4: It would be great if during the installation process user can set the performance level, privacy level and updating strategy (all packages or only the choosen ones). NR.5: X.Org Server 1.20 should be a must have, or not?

On my original internal "NVMe SSD" drive I created now two new files in my "Dowloads" folder: "blabah_1" (11 bytes) and "blabah_2" (11 bytes). They both content just one single word: "blabah". If I open only one of them, everything is ok - but if I open both two files, cursor rotates for around 10-15 seconds: rotating cursor is visible only if I move the cursor over the left dock panel or at the top of the screen over the file name.
