wattOS R10 / MicroWatt R10 question
« Last post by cheiron on April 27, 2017, 05:06:49 PM »

globetrotterdk 8:23 AM
I would like to change the Microwatt R10 install LightDM background. Where can I do this?


globetrotterdk 8:33 AM
I am getting hit badly by the Microwatt r10 uefi bug. I was able to work around the issue on two laptops by using a USB CD/DVD drive, rather than a USB pen drive. This doesn't work on a third laptop however. Any work arounds? All three booting in "legacy" mode. The "problem" computer is an Acer Travelmate P633. Any help please?

wattOS R10 / Re: no sound on microWatt R10, help

I have had this problem in the past, if you have not fixed it yet, I'll break out a laptop and plug it into an HDMI monitor and see if I can replicate and give you the steps. :) - Thanks for being patient.

thanks, got it working, appreciate the followup.

wattOS R10 / blacklist a wifi adapter
« Last post by gychang on April 07, 2017, 11:02:12 PM »
I am running microWattOS 10, have 2 USB wifi dongle being used simultaneously(long story...).  When I boot into microWattOS  I need to disable wlxec086b18693e listed on bottom.  I tried sudo geany /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and putting "blacklist wlxec086b18693e"  on the last line and reboot.  THis does not seem to work, what am I doing wrong?

in terminal try this command..


rfkill list


that should list all the devices.. then rfkill block <adapterindex> (you can unblock by changing block to unblock)


Then add command to /etc/rc.local

wattOS R11 / Re: General Announcement
« Last post by gideon277 on April 02, 2017, 04:10:55 PM »
I have been around from the beginning I have been absent from the board for a long while as work has been crazy.  I had to reregister but I remamber the days prior to the 64bit version etc.  Working with R10 right now and looking forward to R11.
