Geary has been recently updated to version 0.10. I'm suddenly missing an option to add an attachment when writing new email. Is it still there somewhere or am I just blind? :D Thanks

Hi! I have been an avid Mint user. Been using it for ages and am good friends with some of the influential community members :-)

Recently, I had to downgrade to a lesser laptop and I started noticing the freezes, the lag and general lack of responsiveness in Mint 17. I was dis-heartened. I started looking for an alternate. And I found you guys!! Elementary OS is awesome! It does look and feel special :-) Thanks for a wonderful OS. 

I have a couple of observations though:

1. It was love  at first site once I saw your Website and OS screenshots. The very first thing after downloading and installing, that I did was trying to find a way to join the community. Alas! It is dispersed :( I would really like an official web-based community moderated community. (Yes, I have gone through your reasons and also you reddit discussions).

2. I would really like a login feature for your website using OpenID. Now, the reason I need this is because of what happened to me.

I went to your site and downloaded your ISO. But, I contributed a meager amount, let's say X. When I checked in my bank, it was showing that 2X was deducted. Not that I have any complaints, but then if X would have been bigger, it would have hurt.

The other problem was that after I downloaded the ISO, someone deleted it by mistake and I had to re-download it. Now, the site didn't recognize that I had paid before. So, I had to pay $0 to download it and this made me feel like I am a miser :( I'm not.

The end note is the fact that I do like your OS and I DO AGREE to your views on FUNDING. KUDOS guys!

aah.. I must say you got a good eye mate! But, that's actually two differently configured google-chrome instances :-) I am a dev so I had to turn on a couple of experimental features. But, you are seriously awesome!

I think tint2 with elementary desktop is a good idea, it's like a combination with gnome shell and the gnome 2, have a good weekend Elemantaries <3

Hey guys, I need a little help. I have a Galaxy S4 and I'm having trouble with it on my eOS Laptop. I'm running the latest stable OS for both my device and Elementary OS. I'm also using the OEM USB cable from samsung for my device. Tried different ports but I just cant gain access to the device. It appears in files but when I click it I constantly get the error that it is unable to mount my device. Any tips or fixes?

The unlock prior to use trick did allow files to mount the device and browse. But the files and such on the device were actually "usuable" until I copied them to the system.

Hi guys!

There's a weird problem for my Freya. It freezes randomly. All windows get stuck. I can only move cursor.

Ctrl + Alt + F1 works. If I kill the app with active window and use Ctrl + Alt + F7 to switch back. The system will not freeze after several seconds.

It happens about one time a day. Kernel's version is 3.13.0-61-generic and the system to up-to-date. The computer model is Y410p.

I've searched this on Google but find no solution.  Someone else have this problem. For example, https://www.reddit.com/r/elementaryos/comments/2r4cr6/freya_randomly_freezes/.

About this community

elementary is a team of dedicated developers, artists, and everyday computer users who want to craft an incredible computing experience. We make elementary OS—an open source operating system and many apps—and give them to users to help bring this goal to reality. We believe in the powerful combination of a top-notch user experience, a beautiful interface, and the freedom to do with your computer what you like. This is the official community for discussing elementary OS. The elementary Code of Conduct applies.
 
So, it's been a while since I started testing Noise to see if the program does the trick for me. Unfortunately, it doesn't. Despite the fact that it looks beautiful, my library just seems to be a bit too large. Also, ratings are important to me to create playlists and they don't seem to work as well as I need them to.

Therefore I am back to rhythmbox (meh) unless somebody can suggest a player I haven't heard of yet...

+Benedikt Rumpf Well, I've a big music library and although it does not look nice I recommend Clementine, you can customize the user interface to make it nicer.

+Jan Lukas Gernert Interesting, never heard of it, I'll try it :)

Does anyone know of any app (preferably with a GUI), to be able to share files/folders between to laptops with Elementary Freya installed? Samba is ok between Linux and Windows or Linux with MAC. But how about Elementary with another Elementary computer? There is no "share" option network when you right click. I want to share my "video" folder with the rest of the family and not having to use a thumb drive.

Yeah, except for some performance issues and a small incompatibility in the postinstall-script, "drop" runs quiet good. But it needs some refactoring, thought... I really need to spend more time in it.

Hello Elementary OS lovers,
I just installed freya and I love it. But I phase every time a problem regarding double cursor when moving any app to app bar. Yes there is a temporary solution available with some command, but is there any permanent solution?
Thanks in advance...:)

Literally the easiest fix for this it to click on an area to type in, type until your cursor goes away, and then stop typing. Cursor is redrawn as normal.

If I have my system language set to English (UK), is there a way make the login screen clock show the time in 24h format?

Interestingly, the login screen always show an English-language time format, even if I specify German in the language settings for dates etc.—even after clicking on “Apply for login screen…”. That’s a bug, right?

As far as I know there isn't. I have the system clock set at 24h, but the login screen still shows the 12h one. :-(

Has anyone successfully installed Deepin Store Center in Elementary? I have installed it but it doesn't open, doesn't launch. I have installed it via terminal and from Noobslab's site as a deb file. No luck!

If I right-click on a panel icon in Freya, the context menus seem to be non-functional; left-click, and they work as expected. Anyone else seeing this?

+Daniel Foré I was hoping you might be able to confirm that the issue I brought up was indeed that particular bug. And you did. No big deal, I hope.

Yes. I use Geary, so that's probably why it's there.
