General Support / Anyone using Jitsi?
September 13, 2013, 12:32:57 PM
Just wondering if anyone here is using Jitsi.  Also wondering if anyone has been able to get the notifications sounds to work for IM.  I've been searching and messing around with various builds of stable and latest builds of Jitsi and the notification sound, well sounds like a dog barking...  I though it might be a PulseAudio "thing", but I have tried it with a fresh, updated install of VSIDO.
General Support / (SOLVED) Trying to get gdm3 to work.

Hello folks.

In the process of trying to use vsido with gnome 3.8, I noticed that the lock screen (with the sliding curtain) was not functioning.  Instead I still have the original vsido login.

I looked in a number of places for clues:
(Yes, I know Ubuntu isn't the best place for debian.)
I get this error:
   [FAIL] Starting GNOME Display Manager: gdm3 failed!


and various other places.

I even tried checking and asking on the debian forum and got my "hand slapped".  :)

Any direction or suggestions would be great.  Obviously I'm missing something.

BTW:  "VSIDO Gnome" looks really cool with the vsido theme and icons. and is very responsive and snappy!

First off, I just want to say how really nice this distro is and I'm really impressed with its function and its polish.  The art work is really great!

Right now I'm using it as a base for gnome 3.8 (don't throw anything at me!  :) )

I was wondering.  If I wanted to "lighten it up" a bit, what would be the best way to remove some of the games and window managers.  Synaptic a good choice? Or would it be better to leave well enough alone.  Also, is it better when doing something like this to just remove things at the get go and then build up?  (i.e. add gnome 3).

Thanks Folks.

Hello everyone!

I've been lurking for a few weeks now and I'm very impressed with the distro and the forum.  I kind of dropped a bit from the linux scene and have been using some of the popular distros, but got bored pretty quickly and was looking for a challenge.  I'm using the Vsido version with Kernel 3.10-1-amd64 set to XFCE and like it very much.  I hope to learn a lot and hope that I won't be a PIA.
