mate-user added a comment to T8182: gnome-system-tools is still FUBAR.

On Solus Mate, I installed the update for system-tools-backends, and now I was finally able to access time and date settings and fix the time zone, thanks a lot !
Edit 1: I did not have to restart or log out and log in again :)
Edit 2: I think for the setting to be remembered after restart, I had to unlock time settings, choose the correct time zone, then lock time settings. But when I restart, my time is the wrong time and then adjusts to the right time, which is a 1 hour difference.
Edit 3: I noticed the time shown on my lock screen is 1 hour behind !

Hi Josh,
On https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/Channels/Meetings/2019-06-06, it shows:
67.0.1 at 100% for Windows, 0% for Linux/macos (because of https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1556612)
Starting Firefox in safe mode causes Firefox to think I have launched a too-old version of Firefox on next launch
Comment 1 says: Users will be blocked from using their profile if they ever use safe-mode.
Is this of any concern ?

@TheMooseIsLoose I think the problem here is that if you want to have a custom background, you have to manually save a copy of the image file in the Pictures folder. I would expect to download a background image file to my Desktop, open it in the Mate image viewer, set it as my background, then delete the original image from my Desktop and still have that background after restart. Setting as background should automatically save a copy of the image to /usr/share/backgrounds/solus.
Right now I moved my background image file from Pictures to Downloads, and after restart it defaulted to this:

My previous laptop, where I experienced this issue, is now broken and I can't check this there.
On my new laptop with a fresh install of Solus 3 Mate and all updates installed, hovering over the applet and scrolling with the touchpad changes the brightness as expected.
It's improved a lot and no freezing or need to restart, but still a few minor issues:

  • If I click the applet and then scroll, it doesn't change the brightness. It should work like the sound applet, where clicking it and then scrolling changes the volume
  • I noticed if I change brightness and then hover over the brightness applet, the value is not updated until I click the applet and hover over it again
  • If I keep the applet open and press the keyboard buttons, brightness doesn't change
