Quick question about Evolution (running 3.16 on Arch). I can see that it runs background services to check calendar events and notifications. Is there a way to also get the mail service to keep checking for new emails in the background?

I think you should run evolution as a start-up application. Geary works that way for me!

Unless you are using an experimental Russian Elbrus CPU, you simply do not have a 128-bit CPU :)

Finally migrating my data out of my Truecrypt volume and uninstalling it. Goodbye, old friend.

Anyone have a decent alternative to use as a replacement?

+Nuno Horta​​ yeah I mean it may not be unsecure right now but it's not under development so it will be eventually. Its best to migrate away.

Previous Releases (Luna)  - 
 
Hopefully somebody has a solution. I have a desktop configured as a file sharing server via samba. When I view the network in Pantheon Files it shows the server, but when I open it there are no files or folders. I installed Nautilus just to test the issue and it displays the folders correctly. Also, after Nautilus mounts the folders, I can open them individually in Pantheon Files. Is there a way to manually mount the server? I'd prefer not to keep a different file manager, they all muddy up my installation with garbage from other DEs. Or if anyone knows of a good stand-alone file manager that does not install anything else, I'd be open to it (although it'd be a pretty petty reason to abandon Pantheon Files, I feel like it's just a mounting issue). I am currently using Freya beta. Please don't lecture me on no support for it, the issue was the same on my Luna install as well. I normally don't ask for any help with my Freya installation, I have been on linux for 7 years now and can usually figure out my own problems. But this one has be absolutely stumped.

+Dan Borth I have found something, that might be of interest for you: http://www.thomas-krenn.com/en/wiki/Simple_Samba_Shares_in_Debian  
It says that you can mount a guest share via cifs-utils by specifying the "nobody" user, like this:

mount -t cifs //FILE-SERVER-IP-ADDRESS/SHARE-NAME /LOCAL-MOUNTPOINT -o user=nobody

Help the GNOME Foundation defend the GNOME trademark against Groupon: https://gnome.org/groupon/
"GNOME" has been a familiar name in software for the past 17 years, and a registered trademark since 2006. The GNOME project has been a staple desktop for GNU/Linux and BSD desktops. It was the default desktop for Sun Microsystems workstation class machines, continues to be the default desktop ...

Misc PSA,
If anyone is experiencing speed issues with WiFi using ath9k and disabling hw encryption doesn't help, try manually updating to kernel 4.0. Just did it on my laptop and it worked like a dream :)

I have an older Acer netbook with a cracked screen. The video output is VGA, so using it as a streaming device leaves a lot to be desired. Anyone have a decent idea to put it to use? It currently has 1GB RAM (although I have the spare RAM to upgrade if necessary) with an older Atom processor.

Me? I'd pull the hard drive and add it to the LVM pool on my plex/file server.

After much Googling (commonly named elements of the shell making searches inefficient), does anyone know how to remove the Applications button from the dash? I have an 11" screen and shell effects are choppy as well so I'm trying to optimize a 1-workspace flow. (Don't hate on the lack of multiple workspace utilization, my main machine uses them, I just have a different need for this laptop)

+Dan Borth It shouldn't be so hard to remove the button - something like
   Main.overview._dash._showAppsIcon.visible = false;
   Main.overview._dash._showAppsIcon.height = 0;
should do the trick ...
