@Nyto
1.-how did you install pulseaudio-equalizer?
2.-Settings Manager now is called Control Panel? - No, but on the Desktop it is. Our primary target audience is Windows users, not Linux folk so things need to be familiar.
3.-Software updater didn't find available drivers for my system's graphics chip - what GPU?

1.-The usual:
Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-equalizer

2.-Understood, very considerate of you, and a smart idea.

3.-Core i3-3225 with Intel HD Graphics 4000, never had a problem before, is there a way I can force the installation manually?

Hey, thanks for your attention, and keep up the great job.

PulseAudio - doesn't look like it's ready yet - https://askubuntu.com/questions/1031916/pulse-audio-equaliser-not-working-in-ubuntu-18-04
GPU - shouldn't need to install anything, we provide i915 support ootb.

If I backup things in 3.8 using Aptik will I be then able to get them back in Lite 4 or will that risk breaking he new system?

Not recommended, breakage is highly likely.

@Nyto I've thrown together a package that should work (tested at my end). Feel free to give it a go on 4.x - https://www.linuxliteos.com/files/pulseaudio-equalizer-4.0-0010-linuxlite.deb Open with Gdebi only.

@Jerry ,


Tried it yesterday.  It booted to a guest account I created.  Saw one monitor, but not the next.  And I couldn't see the panel to get to anything.  Tried using the right click menu.  It seemed things would open, but they would do so in the screen I could not see.  This was similar behavior to what I got using the Live Media for LL 4.0 Beta. 


For the same laptop and docking station, I Switched Users from the guest account to my main account.  I got to a logon screen, and when I typed in my password, the screen went dark, and the monitor went into sleep mode.

@torreydale is the DisplayLink driver applicable to your hardware?

@Jerry ,

I tried DisplayLink before.  It think it was for that laptop.  I wasn't in the mood to troubleshoot with it but so much at the time.  I have a second PC I'm using, so I can wait until the release of LL 4.0 to try harder with the docking station issue.  I'm hopeful that it will be ok.  It worked with the Live DVD of Ubuntu 18.04 and 14.04, but it did not for Ubuntu 16.04.  Likewise, I was ok with LL 2.x, but not with LL 3.x or the beta of LL 4.0.

@torreydale ok thanks. I've still no idea what the difference is between ours and the other distros you've mentioned. I've even done exhaustive package comparisons just for you on this. Some battles take longer to win.

@torreydale and @Jerry
I can still get my hand on the DELL 6430 and DELL docking station I had as a workstation before changing laptops if you wanna do some tests once 4.0 is released.
It has a Quadro video card inside though so it could be different than using the integrated Intel one.
I do remember, when I just got it, having problems getting the internal and two external monitors working at the same time and that was on Windows7 at the time.

Cheers!

@TheDead your set up could work perfectly. Unless you have the exact same hardware as torreydale, I'm not sure what your test can offer.The only other thing I can think of is if torreydale starts:
Code: [Select]
dmesg -wHthen mounts the laptop into the dock and pastes the last of the output here, I'm out of ideas.

Pathological tweaker, I used to distro-hop (A LOT)   ...until I installed LinuxLite.

Hi, I loved the 3.8 series and I want to try the beta. Downloading now. I wanted to ask that will I be able to upgrade from beta to release with updates or do I have to install again when 4.0 released? Thanks...

You will have to do a complete fresh install.
Copied from first post: There is no upgrade to or from Beta releases. Beta releases are for testing only and it is not recommended to run them as your main or secondary operating system.

Just noticed VLC did not use default theme. This is now fixed in the final. All QT apps should then respect the default theme settings.
