Thanks @paracetamol ! After running those 2 commands, my time is correct after restarting, just that it's 10 seconds behind now.
Going to Time and Date settings and choosing Europe/Dublin fixes it to exact time, which I'd have to do after every restart if I want exact time.
Looks like just opening Time and Date settings fixed it to exact time, that's not so bad 🙂
In summary, the 4 commands to run to fix this problem are:
- sudo rm /var/lib/systemd/timesync
- sudo systemctl restart systemd-timesyncd.service
- sudo systemctl enable systemd-timesyncd.service
- sudo systemctl start systemd-timesyncd.service

After restarting, the problem is back ! I tried to run the first command (sudo rm /var/lib/systemd/timesync) but I see this error:
rm: cannot remove '/var/lib/systemd/timesync': Is a directory
- sudo rm /var/lib/systemd/timesync
- sudo systemctl restart systemd-timesyncd.service
I had this restart/shut down problem before. May be related to the systemd update ?
And the time getting messed up must be specific to Solus Mate.

I no longer see tearing when dragging Firefox tabs !
Maybe the mesalib update from 19.2.6 to 19.3.1 fixed this. Thanks !

After playing Diablo 2 on Windows 10, my headphones stopped playing sound again in Solus !
This time when I booted into my Peppermint 10 Live USB, sound didn't play on my headphones there.
Fortunately, after booting back into Solus, sound plays fine.
Is there any way this can be investigated and fixed ?
Sun, Dec 29
Now sound is playing fine through my headphones on Solus, after I booted a Peppermint 10 Respin Live USB where my headphones worked as expected !

I booted my Peppermint 10 Live USB on my laptop which has a NVMe SSD, and SMART Data was greyed out.
So I guess it's not a Solus bug !

@DataDrake I'm having this problem. Can this be reopened ?
Nov 10 2019
@DataDrake, I have an old Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop with Broadcom BCM4312 shown as the network controller after running lspci in Terminal.
I booted a Solus 3 Mate Live USB and my wifi wasn't listed.
I activated the driver in Hardware Drivers/DoFlicky and logged out and back in.
There were some wifi names listed but not my home wifi.
I booted a Peppermint 10 Live USB and my wifi was listed and connected fine with that Linux distro.
Can this be fixed for the Solus Live session ? Or would it work while connected to the internet via Ethernet cable ?
Nov 7 2019
Yes I'm on Solus Mate which I installed from the Solus 3 iso.
Yes, it's still happening in Firefox 70. I think it's due to a custom Solus Firefox configuration.
Oct 14 2019
Thanks, this is fixed for me now !
Same as T8409 There's a fix for it.
Looks like it will be fixed by D7399

I'm also having this problem on Solus Mate:
I have to click Cancel twice to close it, both for Restart and Shut Down.

Mesa 19.1.6 is now the latest stable version.

Looks like it's fixed for me now, thanks!

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 !

Firefox 67.0.4 was released today!
Jun 7 2019
Ok, thanks for all your work !
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 ?

MATE 1.22 was announced yesterday, I'll update the task description here.
Mar 13 2019
I noticed this just now:
Getting closer to being announced !
Mar 8 2019
The item remaining is "Improve Metacity support" but Marco, which is a fork of Metacity, is already tagged at version 1.22.0.
Yeah I'll update this task with the blog post once it's announced !

@feuerstein I tried it now in Chrome on Solus Mate, since it doesn't work in Firefox. It worked fine for me detecting English (UK). Maybe you have to change the language or it's because of your hardware ?
Feb 23 2019
Ok, just thought it might help to show the latest information.

Ok sure, thanks!
New Solus users might not figure this out themselves, so is there a help centre page (https://getsol.us/help-center/home/) which shows how to fix this for AppImage files ?

What about dav1d, the AV1 decoder ? http://www.jbkempf.com/blog/post/2018/Introducing-dav1d
- source code of dav1d is 1/10th of lines of code compared to libaom
- its weight is 1/3rd of the binary size of libaom
- 1/4th of the memory usage of libaom

I found Noto Sans Gothic here: https://www.google.com/get/noto/#sans-goth (8.7 KB)
I downloaded the zip file, opened the ttf file which opened with Mate Font Viewer and clicked Install thinking it would not work.
Seems it worked fine, and I can see Gothic characters now!
On https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%F0%90%8D%86%F0%90%8C%B0%F0%90%8C%B9%F0%90%8C%B7%F0%90%8C%BF%F0%90%8C%B2%F0%90%8C%B4%F0%90%8C%B9%F0%90%8D%82%F0%90%8D%89#Gothic I see this:
But now I can't uninstall the font ! Font Viewer doesn't have an uninstall option, and there are no results when I search for the ttf file.
I also installed Noto Sans CJK SC by mistake.

Here's DaVinci Resolve 15.3: https://www.mediafire.com/file/f27qz3ce964uirz/DaVinci_Resolve_15.3_Linux.zip/file (830 MB zip file)
It has a shell script file (.sh) and a PDF file (.pdf) which has install instructions.
Here's the PDF file with instructions if anyone wants to read it !

@kyrios123 I'm using jack headphones.
Now my headphones work fine!
I tried a Solus 3.9999 Mate and Plasma LiveUSB, headphones didn't work there.
Then after booting into Solus from the F-12 menu with headphones connected, sound played.
I restarted with headphones disconnected and when I plugged them in, sound worked fine!
I disconnected and connected the headphones now and the sound icon disappeared from the notification area!
Sound preferences only show Speakers as an option under Output.
When I use Test Speakers, it plays through the speakers.

I bought a ThinkPad E480 in Netherlands and I had to set the keyboard to English US (euro on 5).

Disabling hardware acceleration in Firefox did not help.

I've done a fresh install of Solus 3 Mate on a new ThinkPad E480 and I don't have this problem now.
It may be affecting other Solus users who installed an older iso version originally.
Oct 16 2018
This happened on my old Dell Inspiron 15R N5010, but now I have a new laptop.
On my ThinkPad E480 only thing I noticed is holding the brightness up/down button on the keyboard changes the brightness quite slowly.
When I tried a Live USB of a KDE Plasma-based distro, the brightness changed much faster.
I've bought a new laptop, done a fresh install of Solus 3 Mate, and I have not experienced this issue.
But it may still be affecting @waddon1 and others.

Version 1.20.2 is available now !

@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

I installed Solus 3 Mate on my new ThinkPad E480 and hibernate doesn't work when I click it manually.
It just looks like the screen gets locked.
@DataDrake I don't use that Dell laptop any more, and my new laptop doesn't have a button to disable the touchpad.
I don't have access to this laptop right now, I can ask the users of the laptop to install all updates and check this.
After installing Solus 3 Mate and installing all updates, the epub file I had attached above opens fine for me now :)
Even with the latest updates installed, it still did not render properly on my previous laptop where I had installed Solus 2017.01.01.0 originally.

I hope the spelling and duplicates issue in my previous comment here can be fixed for Solus 4, thanks!
