Hi, I am new to Linux Lite just installed version 4 beta. I would like to know when the stable release is out, do I have to reinstall fresh or just use the update mechanism to get the latest. Thanks.

@Jerry ,

The only difference I can see between late Series 2.x and 3.x (4.x pending) is the inclusion of the HWE (hardware stack). Be interested to see if you installed the HWE on Series 3.x, if then the docking station works as expected. There's also something called 'DisplayLink' for Ubuntu, not sure if that applies to your situation though. Sorry, but I've little experience with docking stations.

@Jerry ,

How do I install the HWE stack?  Is it available via install/remove programs?

I'm no expert, but I did ask the same question recently. you will need to do a fresh install. I plan to save my home folder to an external drive, and then migrate it to Lite. same with my other Linux systems. Lite 4.0 is incredible, and I plan for it to be my only Linux once I install it. The Beta works perfectly for me. I like that it has ditched the retro Windows look, while retaining the familiarity that Windows users need and want.

Many laptops coming out now support HIDPI (resolution beyond 1920x1080). Does Linux Lite support that?

It always has. Under Appearance change the DPI there.

Can someone else confirm an issue with Browse Network => Windows Network in LL 4.0... it is unable to retrieve the Workgroup list.

Things I've checked so far:

1- checked gvfs-* and they are all installed
2- Disabled the firewall
3-Checked smb.conf to make sure the configuration is correct. (netbios hostname, etc.)

Everything seems to check out just fine, except Thunar refusing to show Workgroups under Browse Network  :(

smbclient -L ip-address or hostname lists available shares

smbtree does show the entire share tree as expected

browsing smb://hostname or smb://ip-addreess does work also.

For some reasons Thunar cannot display the workgroups folders under Browse Network => Windows Network.

I'm only experiencing this issue with LL 4.0. All machines and servers on the network can see each other and they can all see the LL 4.0 box.

Edited:

Looks like it is the way it will be going forward: https://ubuntuforums.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=278524&d=1518631569

Ubuntu 18.04 contains version 4.7.4 of the samba client libraries which brings with it a lot of improvements but it changes one parameter that will cause this forum nothing but grief. It changes the upper default smb dialect that the samba client uses to SMBv3.11 from the earlier default of NT1.

Conceptually it should not make any difference to host browsing but what that does is disable host browsing ( netbios host discovery ).

Oh well.

For future references, in case someone else wants to get back the Workgroup listing under Browse Network => Windows Network:

1- Edit smb.conf

Code: [Select]
gksu leafpad /etc/samba/smb.conf
2- Set the client max protocol back to NT1 under [global] smb.conf settings:

client max protocol = NT1

3- Save changes and restart the computer. Note: Restart Linux Lite, restarting smbd and nmbd services is not enough.

Sorry for seeming stupid and preferring Linux - I just don't know any better.

64bit OS (32-bit on Samsung netbook) installed in Legacy mode on MBR-formatted SSDs (except pi which uses a micro SDHC card):
2017 - Raspberry pi 3B (4cores) ~ Arm710@1.2GHz - LibreElec, used for upgrading our Samsung TV (excellent for the task)  
2012 - Lenovo G580 2689 (2cores; 4threads] ~ i3-3110M@2.4GHz - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working smoothly)
2011 - Samsung NP-N145 Plus (1core; 2threads) ~ Intel Atom N455@1.66GHz - LL 3.8 32-bit (64-bit too 'laggy')
2008 - Asus X71Q (2cores) ~ Intel T3200@2.0GHz - LL4.6/Win8.1 dual-boot, LL works fine with kernel 4.15
2007 - Dell Latitude D630 (2cores) ~ Intel T7100@1.8GHz - LL4.6, works well with kernel 4.4; 4.15 doesn't work

Will be installing a fresh copy of LL 4.0 64 bits final on my old Toshiba when it comes out.
I've been using 3.x 32bits but my CPU can handle 64 bits architecture.
