Suggestions / ungoogled-chromium
Last post by BrianLinuxing - Today at 06:58:21 PM
Would it be feasible (given space constraints, etc) to include a locally built ungoogled-chromium browser?

https://github.com/ungoogled-software/ungoogled-chromium

The project ships the source code but the binaries are, seemingly, built by any random person and that is not secure.

Therefore, if it was built for Sparky as a portable package, others could use it too and we'd know it had been done properly.

Thanks, Brian

PS: Yes, I run opera, vivaldi, brave, Firefox, Falkon and a lot more browsers, but it would be nice to have another too :)

General discussion / Steps to fix broken lightzone ...
Last post by bazzvn - July 13, 2024, 04:29:16 AM
The lightzone package has been broken for quite a long time. However, you can find a good deb for both Stable and Testing in the Suse OBS. Before installing the OBS version, you need to install the package
libjiconfont-google-material-design-icons-java_2.2.0.2-1_all.deb
This is not available in the Debian repositories, but you can download it from
 https://launchpad.net/~lightzone-team/+archive/ubuntu/lightzone/+packages
So, the steps are:
1. Download and install libjiconfont-google-material-design-icons-java_2.2.0.2-1_all.deb
2. Download and install lightzone_5.0.0.beta2-1+210.5_amd64.deb for your version of Sparky from the Suse OBS
3. In a terminal type sudo apt-mark hold lightzone to prevent it being overwritten during updates.

Enjoy lightzone!

Desktops / Re: Ukui desktop

I was able to bring up a terminal and logged into Trinity. There is something wrong with UKUI desktop. I will remove it. I do like Sparky very much. Thank you for your help.

Disable autologin using any text editor, for example nano:
sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.confchange the line of the [Seat:*] section, to:
#autologin-session=then reboot to get the login screen and choose UKUI.

Choose UKUI Desktop/session instead of Default on login screen.

Desktops / Ukui desktop
Last post by notlurking - July 11, 2024, 02:30:28 AM
Hello to all.

I installed the Ukui desktop using APTus. When I logged into it there was no panel at all. With the mouse I clicked all over the screen and there was nothing I could do to use the desktop. No terminal to use either. My question is do I need to reinstall Sparky. Thanks

System upgrading / Re: Sparkyy7 Upgrad No login
Last post by msseufert - July 09, 2024, 06:19:32 PM
If this is a KDE version. This also happens in Debian proper. It seems that in the case of Debian, the SDDM login screen doesn't have a default theme selected after installation and then upgrading to trixie, which I think Sparky is based on. In a test environment, I did a clean install of Debian stable, made sure I had an SDDM theme selected in the Login Screen portion of System Settings, saved my changes, THEN I upgraded to trixie and the issue seems to have gone away.

Things I'm assuming:
1. You are using SDDM
2. This issue is related to trixie


I really should download and test this in a lab VM and report back.

Sorry, but I've never used Sparky Linux but I have seen signs that it's built on Debian Testing(trixie)
