SparkyLinux TDE
« on: December 09, 2013, 03:12:06 am »
The latest torrents (TDE) from linuxtracker.org once extracted into ISO's and installed on the hard drive will not update and Synaptic will not reload. Is there any fixes to this. Thank you in advance.

Edit files:

/usr/share/applications/synaptic.desktop

and

/usr/share/applications/synaptic-kde.desktop

Change the line:

Exec=synaptic (or synaptic-pkexec)

for

Exec=gksu synaptic

or

Exec=remsu synaptic

You can upgrade packeges via Sparky APTus too.

Could not duplicate. Editing the lines to gksu synaptic failed. Also  cannot connect to the Internet whatsoever even though my network is indicated as up and running. Seems Trinity is full of bugs. I will go back to the e-17 3.1. Thank you for your time and consideration. I will retry trinity once all the bugs are out of it, if and when that may be.

Live & install from multiboot USB flash stick worked & updated well :) for me, just like all the other DE's tried so far.

(Much better than stock DebIan Live!) Trinity/Kde3 even had my monitor happy at 1152x864 - that's rare.
