elementary OS' Stack Exchange might be a better place to get help if posting here doesn't get any response: http://elementaryos.stackexchange.com/

I know all of you want to get your problems fixed and questions answered, but it's not a good idea to tag the developers.There are several reasons:

1. These guys are super busy.
2. These guys hang out here all the time and probably will see your post, tagging people kind of pleads for extra attention. It's kind of rude.
3. Chances are these guys actually don't know the answer to your problem. Just because Dan's the founder doesn't mean he's also able to debug kernels.

Upgrading between releases is currently not possible:

Anyone else having trouble adding a printer? Printer is found, and drivers too, but clicking 'add' does nothing.

It is an HP, however, I have added this same printer before in previous elementary, and it worked fine.

Hi, I added a custom command in start up application to auto start a conky script right after boot up or log in. However it is not working. It works when I run it manually from terminal. Any help to resolve is appreciated.

I know it's not a big deal for most people but I'd try to set it up with a variable instead of a static username there so that when I migrate that account in the future I don't have to edit any user content.
Maybe $HOME would work.

I noticed an update today that caught me off guard.

libwayland-client
libwayland-server

Did Elementary make the switch to Wayland? Or am I just clueless and either this means nothing or the change happened a while ago? ;-)

Elementary wouldn't just "switch" to Wayland. Wayland requires a lot of work be done to the desktop, gala, and their apps. Some features would have to be redone entirely.

Wayland will be a new feature in a major release, not an update.

Hopefully it will be a part of the Juno release but it's very possible we won't get Wayland 'till elementary OS 0.6

Anyone else notice that a recent update has totally screwed video playback and general UX in epiphany. Being unable to resolve it, no matter what I tried, I reinstalled. A clean install and epiphany worked great. I received the notification that I had 15 updates. I looked at the list and epiphany wasn't listed. Yet after the update and a restart the video is jacked up again. It's more prevalent in in full screen but also noticeable when not full screen. I also noticed it causes a flickering on specific components of a web page. For example right now it's causing the top bar on the G+ page to flicker as I scroll.

+Daniel Foré I feel ya. It seems to become apparent at full screen video from a web page. I can't confirm whether it's flash or html5 or both. It for sure does it with html5 because it's happening on youtube. Try playing a youtube video full screen. It produces weird angular black shapes.
It's proly tough to narrow down because it's not a result of an update to the browser. Maybe a kernel update? Though while testing I installed 4.9.3 and the problem was still there.

I previously made a help post about this problem but have more information and based on that would like to phrase my question differently so I apologize to those who previously saw or posted comments.

I have now experienced massive slow down in loading the desktop on two totally different machines. My current install is on a Dell Optiplex 9010: i5 Quad, 16 GB RAM & 1 TB of HD space. This computer has a fairly new & clean installation. After installing I used the App Center to install GDebi and then the other day installed Firefox via terminal using "apt". It is my experience that eOS loads reasonably fast but once you enter your credentials it can take an easy 1.5 minutes to load the desktop. This is very frustrating. I don't want to just hack files hoping to work around this. I would like to know if it is an OS issue or say a Firefox issue. Is there a way to get a report or to see a list of files loading to see where it is hanging? Or does anyone know specifically what is actually hanging and how to resolve it? Thank you

I have the same problem. It's solved by itself. I think it's something with gala.

I just install elementary os upon my hp 2540p i7-640LM laptop. I noticed that even with eight gb of ram. Elementary taxes the laptop, more so on the graphics front.

There is no memory built onto the laptop. You could have a different model.

Its it safe ATM to say support for Vulkan with Wayland is almost ready yo slip in? :)
 
Gtk+ using Vulkan on Wayland? Yes, that's real!
A few weeks ago, I was curious to test Gtk+ 4. I know it has some awsome features like OpenGL rendering, major cleanups and other hot stuff, but didn’t have the chance to check it out until t…

Olá!
Gostaria de deixar aqui o meu agradecimento aos desenvolvedores deste “SO” e dar os parabéns pelo belo trabalho realizado no sistema. Na minha opinião, esta é a melhor distribuição Linux para Desktop até o momento.
Parabéns e, desejo muito sucesso!

Hi. I've recently got hold of an old Macbook pro 13" (late 2011) from a friend who bought a new machine, and I thought I could maybe install elementary OS on it. My question is, do you think it is worth the hassle or this machine is way too old anyway? I mean, could it even be used as a daily driver today? Thanks.

I'm running elementary on a Macbook from around the same time. I would recommend tossing an SSD in it to make it faster, but it runs great as is.

Hi there! I don't know how many of you are already aware of this program, but I used it to successfully add multitouch gestures to my trackpad in Loki on an Acer Es1-131, and since it's something that comes up quite often, I thought I'd share it with you:

https://github.com/bulletmark/libinput-gestures

After it's installed, make sure to tweak the configuration file to your needs, since by default it is set up for GNOME-Shell.

I've found it easier to set up and more reliable than touchegg or any of the other solutions floating around. I hope you find it useful.

Have a great time.

Does Linux still have trouble with Skylake processors? I'm considering to buy a 6700hq gtx960 2gb laptop on which I may also want to run elementary. How do Asus touchpads perform on Linux? Since my Lenovo touchpad had horrendous support...

I'm going to use it as an allrouder, including games. Gtx960 is quite common, so I have some confidence in drivers being available to the point where the gpu is useable. If I install elementary, it'll be dualboot.

i reshare this to watch an AWESOME configuration you can do! This aint my video, I just tried to make the original shorter and more clear, because it was on 1440 without zooming, so it was hard to watch! But I actually made it worse \o/

Anyway for configuration ask the original uploader, here

Hi there! Is it no longer possible to change the button-layout of the window decorations in Loki? I've tried setting them both via dconf and gsettings on multiple fresh installs, but even after rebooting the changes never seemed to have an effect. Am i doing something wrong, or is it simply no longer possible?
