Re: Strange issues with wifi

You're likely to get faster help if you provide specs of the dongle, . . . what brand, what wireless chipset, etc.

In a Terminal window, you can run "Inxi -Fx" to provide basic information.

Re: Can Solus be run via USB device?

If you're OK with running an EFI using Legacy mode & MBR . . . then, getting a portable true SSD like the SanDisk 500 Extreme 500 is excellent.

Re: Display blinks after plugingging HDMI external display.

Have you tried a different/newer hdmi cable? These optical cables are more prone to damage if twisted wrong or impacted by a FO.

Does the cable work well with other devices?

[Solved] Re: HP OfficeJet Pro 8720 - Wireless Print - CUPS Requires Login - Fails

Issue solved by using HP's Device Manager to add the printer instead of the add printer dialog in the Settings Manager. Now wireless print works fine and without requiring CUPS authentication. I need to start using this HP printer mgmt app more - - nice to see the full range of printer options. :)

Re: Solus3 ruins uefi-grub-menu

EasyUefi was flagged for being in uBlockOrigin's "Badware" list. So be careful it doesn't install PUP or other harmful exe's on Win10. Further, that program is not required to see all your valid registered EFI OS's installed. Valid registered does not have anything to do with being installed in UEFI...

Re: Solus3 ruins uefi-grub-menu

What do the other options provide on your specific Toshiba machine . . . . (e.g. did you try each to test output)?

I make a point of not supporting Toshiba in any way - - company with a dark past . . . .
