Hardware / Nvidia + SparkyLinux6 Bullseye = Why ?
« Last post by QazX on January 22, 2021, 02:07:14 am »
Hello everyone,

Im here cause ive tried to move out of MS windows 4 times now and i thought sparkylinux was going to be my answer. With the very little experience and understanding of linux OS I ve fought once again to get a effin gaming Pc running on linux. Please pardon me if  I sound irritated but I actually am. I dont want to be a computer tech i just want to be free from  MS.

So situation:
I tried installing propriatary drivers from Nvidia for my GTX 960 4GB cause the >nouveau stuff< wasnt running 7days to die. Spent hours and finaly found this site here.
Command lines worked and i could confirm that nvidia driver and  kernel header thingies were Nividia. But games still wouldnt works.
While trying to find a solution I somehow remembered that the version of Sparky I had was To polo based off bulleyes, which is debian 11
So why would sparky make version of a freaking OS intented for gaming based off a Testing version of debian... 

well now i dunno what to do, could someone help me out. All I want is being able to use my hardware.

My current solution right now is trying to install Sparky 4 based off debian 9 and attempt to install nvidia drivers again.
Also, why isnt Lutris opening up. I remember using it 2 years ago on Gameover edition.

Thanks ya ll

The author does appear to be shifting gear on support.    On the above git page is the announcement of his more supported (I believe) python version.   Earliest commit on bash version  - 6 months, python version commits 9 and 18 days ago.

I do the ubuntu/debian ppas for expressvpn, spideroak and virtualbox - however I am always reticent to use ppas geared mostly to Ubuntu, but of course simpler and less dependencies ppas will often work.   Glad to see it worked for you.  I will probably stick with htop in  terminal and a conky running.  peace out

Sparky applications / Re: WPS Mui Problem

Removed it from APTus, but a language pack can be installed directly from WPS menu.
However I cannot find the entrance in the menu...

So where can I install them?

Well it's either just hiding - or you've deleted the panel.

Right click on desktop>Desktop Settings>Menus tab>Check Include applications menu on desktop right click

You can then go right click Desktop>Applications>Settings>Panel and put things right.

You know what I'm going to say next.....

You're going to need to open a new one back on the Q4OS forum - 'cos we won't be popular discussing it here!!!

The short answer is, it can be done..... ;)

Hello bin!

I'll remember that if I install Sparky on another testbed. 

What I've done in the interim is nuke the Sparky install, and loaded Q4OS / 64 bit instead with TDE.  Then added the XPQ4 theme app and it looks very nice, and with 2.1GHz CPU and 4 gigs of RAM, moves out smartly. 

Not satisfied to leave well enough alone, I may experiment by loading Xfce and Cinnamon and see if it looks more visually appealing and/or bogs under the heavier RAM load.

I would like now to learn how to swap out the icon images (png's or ico's?) for the individual icons. 

I really do want the old Win2000 File Cabinet icon for File Manager, whether it's Dolphin, Thunar or Nautilus running underneath.

As always, thanks for your help.
