All posts about Freya go in the Unstable Testing category. Please do not post in General or Luna Help.

There are still thousands of people out there using Luna (and you should, too if you want a stable system!). Let's not make it impossible for them to get relevant info about the current stable release. Thanks!

+Brandon Saucier +Hadi Skeini The updates will come just fine sure, but it is recommended to do a fresh install, both for stability and for the reliability of bug reporting, which of course is the main reason we're helping out by beta testing Freya right?

Does anyone got the email indicator (in combination with thunderbird) to work in wingpanel? I gave up a couple of weeks ago...

After installing Beta2 I want to give it a try again at the weekend. Maybe someone has a good advice how to do it.
But I saw no email icons in the uploaded screenshots here... ;-)

Thank you

Just a remark -- elementary-tweaks (0.2-0+r235~ubuntu14.04.1) doesn't list the default theme for plank (Pantheon) so I had to apply it manually (by editing .config/plank/dock1/settings)

Were you guys able to get the default plank theme to work again? Even setting it as default, or gtk + from "$ plank --preferences" does not give me the original elementary look.....

Was running beta 2 but my apps were always frozen after waking up from sleep. Chrome was particularly effected.

Question about the autoremove issue: is it save to remove these packages?

libglib2.0-dev, libgsl0ldbl, libpcre3-dev, libpcrecpp0, libvala-0.20-0, libzeitgeist-1.0-1, valac-0.20, valac-0.20-vapi, zlib1g-dev

@Jonathan Moorman
meanwhile I was stressing out because I have lots of work to do, I end up solving it burning the version alpha 2 and installing freya again. I had previously alpha 1.

@Michael Roberts yeah. I think it was that. because neither the icons appeared neither I could open settings > network (it was giving me a error something like: this module is not compatible with your system)


btw, off topic, alpha 1 vs alpha 2, much better. much more stable. animations are much better. specially when logging in, out and ahutdown

The sudo autoremove bug still present in Freya....try to avoid using this command on terminal atm....or else you end up with deleting important/core packages.

My suggestion #eOS team/moderator should pinned this issue (warning) on  G+ to avoid new/old user accidentally remove important packages and to avoid the question being asking repeatedly...

Hi. How can I bring a window to front by default? For example, when I use GoldenDict's scan pop-up features, I have to click the icon from plank to activate the pop-up dialogue. Thank you!

Anyone already dist-upgrade his luna install to freya successfully? Which steps must be done for that.... thanks

No. Just no. Beta testing requires a stable (as possible) platform for reliable bug reporting.

Fresh install with each new beta release is the way to go.

Same with when final comes out.

I believe there should be upgrade routines in place for Luna to stable when the time comes.

Hello everyone,
I've been enjoying beta 2 so far with no issues, but after installing the XGTK 3.14 theme (kudos to the author for the awesome work) all the dropdown menus from the wingpanel appear as transparent, making them illegible.
My question is, does anybody know how to edit the .css files (and which ones) to restore them to the "original" elementary theme form? Thank you in advance (:

I was running since the day one Linux Kernel 4.0 RC1 being released...and work without any issue but the most important thing is it's solved the "ACPI PCC Probe Failed" bug on previous kernel 3.19...and yeah i'm running Freya. For those who planning to update make sure you update the linux firmware too...hints add oibaf/ppa (pls google it how to update kernel first to be safe enuf).

sidenote: i always deleted/clean up all my previous kernel installed ( ie: 3.19, 3.13) and just leave the latest kernel after running for few's hours (if no issue found)...btw make sure BEFORE reboot to sudo update-grub or burg or whatever... ;)

hey guys  I just successfully installed freya beta 2 on my MBP '09 and everything works great. The only problem is that when i boot my mac boots straight into Freya instead of rEFInd from where i should be able to choose. I did a dualboot wit OS X.

+Saqeef Iqbal Chaudhary That's a known problem with a easy solution.
Restart your Mac and hold down the option/alt key, the build in Mac boot loader will appear. Choose Macintosh HD and reinstall refind.
Now you can reboot , the refind boot loader will appear.

Hello there, earlier today I updated my freya install with the latest sweetness available from the stock/default sources, but something went wrong along the way.

I can't get the graphical interface to "boot"... The process gets stuck in a black screen, and in order to login to the OS or do anything, I have to enter terminal mode (tried startx without success). I've noticed there was an update to the kernel and a lot other stuff (graphic drivers, software, etc).

It shouldn't be a problem with the kernel, cause if it was, I wouldn't even be able to summon the command line (and I would be able to boot the graphic interface in an older image when booting the OS up)..

Here are the specs from the computer where I have freya currently installed:

Toshiba Sattellite L50-b-1x3
Core i5 4210u;
8GB ram;
Radeon R7 M260 + Intel HD 4400.
Freya 64bit!

Everything worked without updating, haven't really tested 3D performance with it (i know AMD isn't the best providing linux support).

Can anyone share some tips as to what I should do ?

Thanks,

+Gabriel Perren I don't think that it is a good idea, I don't really know what cause this problem I had. I just reinstalled freya, wasn't looking forward to hours of failed terminal commands, installations and unreachable ppas.

WARNING: Installing 32-bit Google Chrome (the default download option) will BREAK 64-bit systems. [Choose 64 bit download option instead.]

Specifically, the network indicator will disappear, maybe more. This also affects Ubuntu Trusty and probably any version of Ubuntu.

However, it should now be safe to install Skype from the web (it only provides a 32-bit download), as well as Wine.

The recommended Wine method is via PlayOnLinux but any sane method should work.

+Cody Garver also, if you use Midori to download Chrome, you'll get the 32-bit version no matter what; something screwy happens with the form. So it's important to check the actual downloaded file as well.
