    @UriHerrera Thanks Uri. " It's fixed for the next ISO." - there was not even a doubt. You do a cool job guys.

    Hello hello! Glad to see Nitrux and the community are picking up steam.
    I'm having a hard time getting to the documentation. The old compendium URL and FAQ URL just direct me to the main Nitrux site, and the new URL mentioned in the banner in this chatroom sends me to a password protected site. Am I missing something, or has the documentation moved?

    Hi. The Compendium and FAQ have information that only pertains to the ZNX ISOs, not the ISO that you download from the website.

    Hi, Uri. Today, system updates came and as a result I got these data:
    System: Host: sergio-dellxps420 Kernel: 5.4.23-050423-generic x86_64 bits: 64
    Desktop: KDE Plasma 5.18.4 Distro: Nitrux 1.2.8 build.19znx

    But what bothers me is that the kernel still remains the same 5.4.23, although I know that the system has already come out with 5.5.x
    Could it be that the system has been updated to 1.2.8, but the kernel is not being updated?

    Hi. Newer kernels only come in new ISOs. The version number that you've got is also wrong, that's why the package base-files is on hold for that ISO.

    Sergiy
    @OldRunner_gitlab
    Ok Uri. I understood.
    But the question now is about the new version of the OS - I see only ISO with 1.2.7 on the site, but it does not start with me.
    I hope that soon there will be a "working" 1.2.8 if an update with this number has already gone through the system.

    But you can install a new kernel though if you want, you don't have to wait. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds

    @OldRunner_gitlab
    OK . I will try to install as you advise. It will be interesting to see the result. In any case, I hope that soon we will see a new version.

    How can I run VMetal on another drive?

    What do you mean by another drive? Do you want to put the Windows virtual drives on another storage device? If so, you can do that, then just create a symlink in ~/VMetal/images pointing to the files.

    @zhainhart Thanks for the info.
    I have already reinstalled, but so far I have problems with wi-fi - I have to start every launch with wi-fi recovery and for some reason reboot does not go to the end - I need to turn off the computer completely. So far, I'm still dealing with problems.

    Hi Uri, I use TP-Link and there were no problems with it before, and now after activation in the “safe mode” it worked without problems. When there was a problem, the system reported that "there is no network manager".
    There was still a problem with “freezing” during reboots - the system hung up and did not respond to any commands or to “3 fingers” or to anything else and only had to turn off the PS completely (from the power supply).
    I immediately reinstalled the OS, updated it, and it seems the problem is gone.
    I started the computer right now and checked - everything worked properly.
    But there is another problem that I noticed in previous releases - it does not save DE color settings in the selected option (light) and always resets to the dark (default) option.
    This is especially annoying when you need to open Discover and in the search field it is not possible to see anything that you write until you set the light mode again.

    Are you looking for documentation for something specifically? Or do you need help with something?. We don't have a central place for MauiKit documentation yet, but you can check the blog or join the Telegram group at https://t.me/mauiproject if you're looking to develop something with it.

    This is especially annoying when you need to open Discover and in the search field it is not possible to see anything that you write until you set the light mode again.

    When you change the theme, for example, from the dark theme to the light theme, you have to change it too using Kvantum Manager, changing the theme using the Global Theme KCM does not change the Kvantum theme. Also, the Kvantum theme does not pick up the color-scheme that is selected using the Colors KCM since the Kvantum SVG theme engine does not work like that. When Kvantum is used, the color-scheme is complementary to the Kvantum theme as the theme is already providing the colors for the UI widgets.

    Applications such as Discover and the Maui apps use QML and not QtWidgets like System Settings, Ark, Calc, etc. So they are not themed to the full extent that QtWidgets apps are because Kvantum does not support QML adequately.

    After installing the new version 1.2.8, I accidentally found out that it was installed on Btrfs not Ext4. How it happened - I can’t even imagine :) - I installed the same partition on the disk with the replacement 1.2.6 and the FS should have remained the same. But this is not the most interesting.
    What is interesting, I got a strange feeling (just my feeling) that the new system was somehow faster - feedback on commands, in the execution of programs, search in the browser.
    I understand that the new kernel should improve the things that I’m talking about, but could it be connected with what FS it is installed on?
    I’m just curious, it’s just me alone who “noticed” such things or someone else.

    BTRFS has been the default filesystem used in the installer, so it may be a combination of the newer Kernel and Plasma versions.

    Thanks Uri, I didn’t know.
    The fact is that I also have other OS installed in parallel, and the GRUB from Ex4 does not see everything that is installed on Btrfs :)
    I had to solve this problem, too.
    But the speed?
    Did it just seem to me? Is that an illusion?

    That seems to be a known problem with GRUB, it can't browse BTRFS subvolumes.

    Hi @UriHerrera I prefer to use Nitrux light windows decoration but sometimes I use the dark variant with specific apps like konsole. I used to create windows rules to force dark variant with breeze but it seems that this doesn’t work with Nitrux widow decoration theme. I tried also using Kvantum tu apply dark variant of Nitrux to Konsole but the frame remains light. Is there anything I can do to achieve this?

I tried also using Kvantum tu apply dark variant of Nitrux to Konsole but the frame remains light. Is there anything I can do to achieve this?

    The Breeze window decoration is a native QStyle window decoration, in other words, it uses C++ code, and it takes its colors from the color scheme, this is why you can select different window colors for different windows. The window decorations that we use are not QStyle decorations; they use the Aurorae theme engine and make use of SVG assets to draw the decoration. Changing the color scheme does not affect them.

    Kvantum Manager only affects Kvantum; it doesn't affect window decorations. And I don't think that it's possible to have different window decorations per window with Kwin.

    Hi. Migrated from PopOS to Nitrux stable (the iso from the website's download option). No issue installing, booting into it, or updating. But I am running into a peculiar problem I've not ran into in other distros. For some reason, navigating explorer is //extremely// slow. Windows are popping up abnormally, the dock animations can take upwards of seven seconds to complete, etc. Same with the file explorer. Terminal is also loading each character I type roughly six seconds after I type them and so on.

    Once I'm in any program, eg FireFox or even a game, no problems.

    I'm intrigued at testing this out more but I've got to get through this problem first. Running an RX 580 and a Ryzen 5 3600X, more than confident it's not a requirements issue. If you have any advice, I'd appreciate it.

    @Haelikor_twitter You can try changing the compositor to use OpenGL 2 instead of OpenGL 3, or use XRandr. I also have that GPU, but I haven't bumped into those problems. Take a look here https://www.reddit.com/r/kde/comments/a4ve94/plasma_performance_on_amd_gpu_update/.

    Hi Uri
    I just checked the updates, something was updated, but the upgrade from 1.2.8 to 1.2.9 did not happen (didn’t come?).
    Should I do something special or just wait?
    Sorry to bother you, but I really want to "be on the edge"
    Amendment.
    I just checked your Facebook post and realized that I was wrong - this will automatically happen starting from 1.2.9, but not now.
    Sorry for the rush :)
    Uri Herrera
    @UriHerrera
    @OldRunner_gitlab You can upgrade from 1.2.8 to 1.2.9, but it may require a little bit of manual work. It's easier to reinstall using the new ISO so that the new packages are more comfortable to upgrade.
    Sergiy
    @OldRunner_gitlab
    Hi Uri
    I already reinstalled (I did not wait) and use it in full power.
    Installed all the programs from the previous version - so far everything is working as usual.
    So far, both nVidia and sound - everything works as expected.
    If there are any problems, I will inform you later.
    So far - no problem.

    Hi, does nitrux support touchscreen and there is no vmetal anymore?

    @AndrejusAnto Hi. I can't say, none of us have a laptop with a touchscreen. VMetal isn't available in the ISO from the website, it's only available in the ISOs that are used with ZNX.

    Uri Herrera
    @UriHerrera

    VirtualBox_Ubuntu_31_05_2020_09_21_21.png

    @Blenux__twitter Ok found a solution. If you already installed KMail, remove all the packages that were installed when you added KMail. You can check this by opening the file /var/log/dpkg. Then open the file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu-focal-repo.list and comment out the repositories, and save the file.

    Then, open the file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu-bionic-repo.list and uncomment the repositories, and save the file. After you've done this, run sudo apt update, and then you can install Kmail. Do make sure that the packages that should be installed should be the ones from the bionic and neon/user repositories, and not focal.

    Hello Uri,
    Thank you very much for such a great new OS.
    I would like to know more about vmetal n ZNX but was not able to find on the website.
    Could you please guide me from where I can get the installation ISO.
    Uri Herrera
    @UriHerrera

    @kulwinderpuri Hi, thank you.

    You can find more information about both at our blog https://nxos.org/blog

    As for the ISOs they're here https://repo.nxos.org/ubuntu/iso/

    These ISOs work with ZNX:

    nitrux-dev-test-*-amd64.iso
    nitrux-development-amd64.iso
    nitrux-minimal-amd64.iso
    nitrux-stable-amd64.iso
    test_build_*-amd64.iso

    This ISO nitrux-stable-amd64.iso is generated from the master branch of our ISO generation tool, and nitrux-development-amd64.iso comes from the development branch. Every month the development branch is merged into the master.

    This ISO nitrux-minimal-amd64.iso comes from the minimal branch which itself comes from the development branch, but it doesn't have a release schedule, and it doesn't have a GUI, it's command-line only.

    These ISOs are regular Ubuntu-based systems, they have APT and use the Calamares installer and do not work with ZNX:

    nitrux-legacy-amd64.iso
    nitrux-stable-amd64_$DATE.iso

    This ISO nitrux-stable-amd64_$DATE.iso is the one that you download from the website using the download button, and our CI generates nitrux-legacy-amd64.iso from the legacy branch, and it comes with a different desktop shell.

    The ISO files test_build_*-amd64.iso are, as the name indicates test builds to showcase that third-parties can use ZNX too. The only difference is that they don't come with the Ubiquity or Calamares installer as the upstream ISOs do.

    The following ISO files don't have APT or dpkg; neither they use the Calamares installer. These are the ones that focus specifically on AppImages.

    nitrux-dev-test-*-amd64.iso
    nitrux-development-amd64.iso
    nitrux-minimal-amd64.iso
    nitrux-stable-amd64.iso

    The ISO files nitrux-stable-amd64.iso, nitrux-development-amd64.iso and nitrux-dev-test-*-amd64.iso also include Homebrew, PNX, Docker, and Flatpak support. These are the only ISOs that include VMetal. The ISO file nitrux-minmal-amd64.iso does come with CLI utilities like mc and w3m.

    The ISO files nitrux-dev-test-*-amd64.iso are used to test other init systems, as their name indicate one uses OpenRC and the other runit, although the runit ISO does not login the user (of course that's a bug).

    As of this moment nitrux-stable-amd64.iso still uses systemd and nitrux-development-amd64.iso and nitrux-minimal-amd64.iso uses SysV.

    You can download the AppImage from here https://github.com/Nitrux/storage/blob/master/AppImages/znx-master-x86_64.AppImage

    As for the ISO, as I mentioned above they're here https://repo.nxos.org/ubuntu/iso/ you can download whichever you want to test.
