Go to Menu and under "All" find "Preferred Applications." In the Office tab, make sure Atril is selected under Document Viewer.

Why did you not apt-get purge chromium?

I will try that next time I need to completely remove something. Using Synaptic's "Complete Removal" option leaves a lot of leftover folders. So much for "Complete." hmm

Did it 3 days ago. So far all is well.

That is an emphatic "no." I mean uninstall Chromium, and then manually going through and deleting all the leftover chromium folders left on the system.

#5 Re: Other Issues » Chromium wonky for anybody else? » 2024-07-12 21:59:05


Well it just happened again. Chromium lost one of my profiles. I'll try uninstalling completely and reinstalling. Hopefully that will fix it.

Has Chromium been running wonky for anybody else the last month or so? It started giving me an error message every time I opened it saying that it didn't shut down properly, do I want to restore the tabs? But it always had been shut down properly. One of the last updates seemed to have fixed this issue for me, but now when I create a new profile it keeps "forgetting" it. Happened at least twice. Anybody else getting weird issues with it? It's seriously making me consider going back to Vivaldi. I suppose the first thing I should try is to completely remove it and then reinstall it.

Good luck to file complaints to those corporate WEB-sites.... I can imagine the outcome.

I can say from being on the Pale Moon forum, which suffers from this problem even worse than Firefox, that the usual outcome is to be told "Use Chrome."

And it's not only the sites that are the problem, but also Gooble which has the power to change internet/browsing/web standards, and who also happens to have the most used browser. It's a case of the fox guarding the hen house.

I wouldn't call this voting. Just a way of keeping track of the "yeas" and "nays." And like I said in the first post, it is only something I was wondering about. I have no plans to switch. Alsa works just fine for me.

Thanks for the link. Didn't see this thread. So I guess it's now 1 👍 and 1 👎.

Yeah, I noticed the company the creator works/worked for. Okay, so that's 0 👍 and 1 👎.

Read today that Mint 22 will be switching from Pulseaudio to Pipewire. That got me to wondering, does Pipewire have any of the same "baggage" as Pulseaudio? What is the consensus of the Devuan forum members concering Pipewire?

Do you have to be logged in to see this? I don't see a "More" button to click.


Okay, I see it. And yes, you have to be logged in to see it. He also mentioned that he's quitting yt and moving over to Rumble, but I see that he posted new videos after he made the announcement. 😕

I forgot to say: "Thanks."

Does anybody know how to contact this Jim Acklaw? I'd like to download his version of Miyo but he doesn't include sha values on his sourceforge page. I'd like to suggest to him to start including it, but his sourceforge page also doesn't have a Discussion area like Dan's does.

#15 Re: Off-topic » tl;dr: supervise children around all water, even a half-full bucket! » 2024-06-29 20:57:01


Not to get philosophical here, but animals only do what they've been programed to do (to use a computer analogy). That's one thing that makes them animals. Human beings have free choice, and as you alluded to, most are using that free choice in a wrong way. Yes, I'm paying attention. smile

#16 Re: Off-topic » tl;dr: supervise children around all water, even a half-full bucket! » 2024-06-29 20:36:52


A good timely reminder. I remember telling my wife years ago when our son was very little that he can't be left alone in the bathtub. A kid can drown in an inch of water.

Natural selection has nothing to do here. Human beings are not animals.

#17 Re: Devuan Derivatives » [MiyoLinux] New Releases Uploaded » 2024-06-29 11:21:36


Dan made a post just 2 days ago on his sourceforge page, and made no mention at all of this other version. … 0494056cf/

Got the answer on Dan's sourceforge page (the link above), yes he does endorse Jim's version.

Are you blocking any scripts? Have you tried problem websites in a brand new clean profile?

Did Dan ever mention why he stopped developing Miyo?

#21 Re: Other Issues » [SOLVED] Chromium update ruined my shortcut to second profile » 2024-05-23 21:04:22


Is version 125.0.6422.76-1 the one you're on now? That's the version I was updated to yesterday.

#22 Other Issues » [SOLVED] Chromium update ruined my shortcut to second profile » 2024-05-22 23:10:24

Replies: 5

I have multiple profiles for Chromium. For the default profile, I have a shortcut on the desktop (which still works). For my second profile I have a shortcut on the panel. After today's update, this shortcut on the panel for the second profile no longer works. See the image below for what I get.

This is the command for the shortcut:

/usr/bin/chromium --profile-directory="Profile 2"

Everything worked fine for months, through every update, until today. Does anybody have any ideas how to fix this? (Yes, I rebooted the computer.) BTW, I can still access the second profile via the default, but would like the shortcut to be fixed. Thanks.

#24 Re: Other Issues » Malware found in xz » 2024-03-30 19:23:43


From the link below:

Specifically, the nefarious code baked into the code is designed to interfere with the sshd daemon process for SSH (Secure Shell) via the systemd software suite,

So does this mean that Devuan and others based on Devuan would be immune from this malware, even if it is installed?

Forgot to put the link. Here it is: … in-xz.html
