JoshStrobl closed T9333: Microsoft Edge (Insider) on SolusOS as Wontfix.

This is not redistributable software, it's not something we'd had to the repository and we're not accepting any additions to our Third Party. The RPM and Deb files are provided by Microsoft, the AUR actively violates EULAs and licensing.

No, that's an AppImage, not a proper source tarball per our inclusion policy.

We have no plans of adding any additional software to Third Party. I personally use the Flatpak with Zoom and it works fine for my needs.

There is a direct download link for an AppImage version here now: https://www.slsknet.org/SoulseekQt/Linux/SoulseekQt-2018-1-30-64bit-appimage.tgz

It looks like since this has been closed a Flatpak has been added for it on Flathub https://flathub.org/apps/details/us.zoom.Zoom . Though it isn't directly supported by Zoom themselves, it is definitely functional.

May I confirm whether you have switched the Solus system UI language to any of zh-CN / ja-JP / ko-KR ?
Also, please remove the DroidSansFallback and DroidSansJapanese fonts to prevent them from misleading system font fallback procedures. These two fonts are supposed to be deprecated.

JoshStrobl closed T8862: Remember The Milk as Wontfix.

Given we have no plans on flatpaking or snapping this application, closing as wontfix. I'd suggest reaching out to the respective developers about supporting either of those distribution and container models.

josephscade added a comment to T8779: Rust lang: cargo command is unknown.

Maintainer of rustup on Solus here
Splitting the rust ecosystem is not a good choice, I agree with you, but rustc, cargo and rustup are different programs, which follow different development cycles. As such, distributing these three programs in one single package would be rather impossible to maintain.
Additionally, this 'big-rust' package would depend on itself since rustup depends on cargo, and so on, which adds even more difficulty.

purrlinn added a comment to T8779: Rust lang: cargo command is unknown.

because cargo is a separate package, install it via
sudo eopkg it cargo
or
sudo eopkg it rustup
of course nothing works if you just curl stuff and do not do any distro integration, I have a feeling you have a fundamental misunderstanding how things work on Linux

livingsilver94 added a comment to T8779: Rust lang: cargo command is unknown.

Also, our rust and cargo packages are more oriented to build other packages than to users. They do work of course but you cannot install and select the toolchains you want nor you can update Rust at your discretion. I suggest you to install rustup via sudo eopkg it rustup so that you have rustup which you can do whatever you want with, it doesn't have the limitations I listed.

I used this command:

curl --proto '=https' --tlsv1.2 -sSf https://sh.rustup.rs | sh

Is that not the blessed way of installing rust on solus?

Girtablulu triaged T8779: Rust lang: cargo command is unknown as Needs More Info priority.

we do have the rust version inside our repo, did you use this to install or only used it via rustup?
