In the [Seat:*] section of your lightdm config file find autologin-user=keos. Put # in front of it. Save changes. Reboot.

Something new, had not noticed:

When I 'close session', the display returns to log in, but when I don't, when I restart or shut down the system, that's when it disappears, no more comes, and the system enters directly without logging in.

I decided to reinstall Sparky, this time on 7.

I will be more attentive now to the system space, maybe it is the Directory that somehow is increasing, without realizing ... although most of the things I have are Chess engines, databases, etc, it is not much.

How can I realize what exactly would increase the size of my directory?

Thanks.

Edit: I forgot to mention: Wine.

Hi,

I just installed this system, I found it interesting because of how small it is, and I have two others on my PC ... of course I uninstalled most of the games.
I have a question, over time and after many updates, the system will occupy more space in the partition, there will be 'an end'.
What is recommended, to reinstall again (assuming you have backup copy) or to enlarge the partition? - something that in the end will have the same outcome.

A greeting  ;)

Leave enough room for it from the beginning. After that doing a cleanup of cached packages regularly and you will never run out of space. This is assumed when you don't run out of space of your home dir. If it's your home dir that being filled, you have to move some of your data to other storage media.

Applications / Problems with Okular
« Last post by keos on October 23, 2021, 12:57:50 am »
 Hi, i installed okular from synaptic with all recommended dependencies, including those binaries that are 'suggested' and when the application opens it is partly frozen, it does not allow settings.

Thanks for any advice.

Newbie questions / Problems with Pychess
« Last post by keos on October 22, 2021, 01:29:38 pm »
Hi,

I can not find how to configure the speed of the movements on the PyChess board, it plays at an incredible speed especially the first movements.

Even adjusting the 'time control' to 'without time' -- it is supposedly slower -- it does not apparently respond to this order, or I lack something in the configuration that is not evident to me till now.

Could someone give me some suggestion to deal with ...?

*python3-pychess


EDIT:

I forgot to mention that this problem is in relation to the competition between Engines.

All the best.

System upgrading / Sparky upgrade 5 to 6, risks and alternatives
« Last post by blnlx on October 21, 2021, 06:28:08 pm »
Several times already I've been using `sparky-upgrade` (see https;//sparkylinux.org/tag/upgrade/) for upgrading my system. Each time the system failed to boot after a successfully completed upgrade and I've had to preform `grub-install` from a live CD. It's a very basic system, no dual boot, just sparkylinux with a root partition and a home partition. And still it wasn't possible to perform a single system upgrade without breaking it.

Now I'm contemplating to upgrade 5 to 6. This is not possible with `sparky-upgrade` anymore, but I have seen another solution:
Quote
Upgrading Sparky 5 to 6:
Get it:
wget https;//sparkylinux.org/files/sparky-dist-upgrade56
Make it executable:
chmod +x sparky-dist-upgrade56
Run it:
sudo ./sparky-dist-upgrade56

By the way, this script comes with a warning:
Code: [Select]
# This script lets you upgrade your Sparky 5 installation to Sparky 6.
# It is provided as it is, means no guarantee that will be working with no problems, you are using it on your own risk!

Looking back at my previous experiences when it comes to the system upgrade, I'm terrified that something will go wrong, possibly much worse than just a GRUB setup.

Did anyone already use this upgrading method?
Please share your experience.

Are there any alternative upgrade solutions (that are more reliable)?
Like maybe upgrading from a live CD... How to do that?

I would like to avoid full installation if possible. It's a very old PC and I'm not willing to invest a lot of time in it.

I have noticed that Discover didn't download updates.
I have to use terminal or APTus AppCenter to update the system.
