Installation / Can't install MATE Desktop since last week!
« Last post by logomage on December 01, 2020, 11:39:23 pm »
Last week I could install the MATE desktop last week on one of the stable releases (32-bit Xfce) of Sparky Linux 5.13 installed on a Acer Aspire One netbbook with 2GB of RAM using the APTus tool.

This week I can't when I attempt to do more or less exactly the same thing!!! - I can't install the MATE desktop on either one of the stable releases (32-bit Xfce or 32-bit LXQt) of Sparky Linux 5.13 installed on a Acer Aspire One netbbook with 1GB of RAM using the APTus tool!!

Sparky is saying that something is broken when I try to install the MATE desktop using APTus but I can't see any problem at my end??

Is this connected at all with the fact that when I try to run sudo apt-get update in the terminal it tells me that the Sparky Security repositories are not signed and thus barred by default?

Help I need this sorted asap please!

Code: [Select]
-locker 'i3lock-fancy -g -p -c 2081D5'This part tells xautolock to use I3lock-fancy as a locking mechanism. And I3lock-fancy is not the same as I3lock.
Use the example I gave you.

Example
Code: [Select]
exec --no-startup-id xautolock -time 10 -locker 'i3lock -c ######' &
Replace ###### with a proper color in RRGGBB format.

Thanks.
From the CLI is working (
Code: [Select]
i3lock -c 2081D5) but not from the config file:
Code: [Select]
exec --no-startup-id xautolock -time 10 -locker 'i3lock-fancy -g -p -c 2081D5' & Above the standard line with only my edit for the color

Ill search for a solution, maybe I can try the indications at

Which version of Sparky are you running?

Run inxi -F in a terminal. The third line down will show Distro:......

Next run sudo apt policy - that will produce a longish output - copy and paste the whole lot - then in your reply post  click the # button above the reply box and paste in he gap between the 2 code boxes.

Desktops / Change the color of the lockscreen in i3
« Last post by cecca on November 30, 2020, 04:51:58 pm »
Hi!
I'm like the i3wm and the possibility to configure it (and also the fact that is lightweight and so much keyboard oriented) but I'm facing few drawbacks that I can't solve by myself

By example: how can I give to i3lock a color for when the xautolock will get in action?  don't like the fact that my screen is readable before inserting my password.
I've tried adding the
Code: [Select]
--color "$bg-color" to the i3block part in i3 config without success

Can you help me, please?
