I'm trying to get skype sound to work but apparently the monkeys at MS removed
alsa support and replaced it with pulse, which is rubbish. Even though I have
pulse enable (pclos - ali's remaster), it still doesn't show up. Is there a
fix to re-enable alsa or the like?

HP Probook 6475b, Debian 9 (stretch) (MX 17.1 actually), TDE 14.0.5. The
volume buttons will move the onscreen indicator between 0% and 10%, but no
farther, and the volume setting is unaffected. The volume buttons work fine
in XFCE. Any ideas where to look for the problem?

the "compress as" submenu in Konqueror is going to have some minor rework.
We are changing the default compression format from gz to xz and enabling jar format (which could be useful for java
We would like to remove lzma from that menu since we think it is not widely used anymore (the format would still be
available through the "Add to archive" entry).
Any objection on this last point before we proceed?

Hi everyone. This is a proposal for a tiny usability improvement, in my biased
opinion. A bit of space between "close window" (the X) and "restore/maximize"
(the boxy thing) up right, on the window border. If you remember, kubuntu did

Getting the trinity-keyring in Devuan can be tricky, I had to learn a
system that worked, First of course is to do the Devuan base install
and then boot and login and do apt-get update and 'apt-get install
trinity-keyring --allow-unauthenticated', now you can apt-get install
tde-trinity, you will have to tell apt 'y' for yes when asked to install
untrusted. After the install is done and you boot to the trinity desktop
you can copy the trinity-keyring and run 'apt-key adv --keyserver
keyserver.quickbuild.io --recv-keys (paste the trinity-keyring here)'
and your good to go. If you try to have a system without the keyring
properly installed you are going to have system problems, so make sure
you can install aptitude and can run aptitude dist-upgrade without problems.

Hey Guys, first my thanks to Timothy who had the foresight to start this
project and stay with it. Timothy Pearson you rock!
I test Debian and Ubuntu KDE for more than 20yrs, but no more I'm
leaving Plasma and Systemd, they take the Happy out of Camping and
I'm trying to setup Trinity with No-Systemd and get a good HDMI
connection for both audio and video, it seems with systemd this is no
problem and without systemd it's a hit and miss thing, if I keep at it I
can get it working but I don't know what I'm doing and get frustrated. I
have 3 multimedia computers one has nvidia and I'm watching video and I
have audio, I can turn audio down using the video player vol control but
the tde-mixer or pulseaudio vol control are not working. The other two
are Intel audio and video and I feel lucky to get audio at all,
sometimes it's just video and when I go to the konsole and type $
'pulseaudio --start' I can get audio. Any help to get all this to
working auto-magic would be greatly appreciated.

I am running Ubuntu 16.04 and the corresponding trinity version.
But know I have a sort of bizarre problem. I activate the screensaver, I
select the matrix. I successfully run the test, but when the screensaver
should start, just a simple empty blank screensaver starts, but not the
Is there anybody with a a similar problem and know how to solve it?
