it looks good but is it possible to set “tab to klick” for touch pads?

do you mean “tap to click”? how do normally enable that? should not just work?

tab to klick is a checkbox at the touchpadsetting (start krunner and write touchpad)
imo it should be set but the checkbox in touchpadsetting was never set in any previous release

Looks like this to me:

Today i tried to install RC4 on my office machine, but i got serious problems.

Machine: Core I7-8700k, 16gb ram, ssd, GeForce 1050Ti, 2x 2K HD monitor (one connected with DVI-D and one connected with display port)
The pc works fine, there are Win10 already running on it. Secure boot is disabled.

With non-free boot:
Instead of getting the gui, the monitors turns off and nothing happens. Tried it twice, same results.

With free boot:
Tried it 3 times. Twice, i get a black screen with a mouse pointer for a couple of seconds, then i only get black screen. Once i get the gui, but it get completely frozen, see the attached picture.

i think it would be the same with a previous release

  1. i would try to disable one graka
  2. disconnect one screen

Yeah, i will try it tomorrow.

WUT? :smiley:

Well, Linux Mint works fine in this office pc. So i was able to grab inxi and xrandr output.
inxi.txt (2.5 KB)
xrandr.txt (1.3 KB)

I will be able to do some further testing later this day.

pardon :wink:
i mean your graphic card(s).
is your cpu without a graphical unit?

Graphics:
  Device-1: NVIDIA GP107 [GeForce GTX 1050 Ti] vendor: ASUSTeK 
  driver: nouveau v: kernel bus ID: 01:00.0 chip ID: 10de:1c82 
  Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.19.6 driver: nouveau 
  unloaded: fbdev,modesetting,vesa 
  resolution: 2560x1440~60Hz, 2560x1440~60Hz 
  OpenGL: renderer: NV137 v: 4.3 Mesa 18.0.5 compat-v: 3.0 
  direct render: Yes 

Yes, there are an Intel UHD630 embedded graphical deccelerator. I did not seen a disable option in bios, so i think it’s disabled by default when there are an other card in the system. There was some hybrid option for the graphics, but that is disabled.

Today’s results are conserning.
-So Linux Mint works fine.
-Our good old Goedel iso works, but uses only the monitor on the DVI port. Even xrandr did not seen the second connected monitor.
-Current RC4 dies even with only one connected monitor, instead of showing the plymouth. Not matter which one remains connected, the iso freezes with black screen.

does mint load intel graphic modules?
booth graphics can’t work together without software aid

No, see the inxi output from Mint:

Graphics:
Device-1: NVIDIA GP107 [GeForce GTX 1050 Ti] vendor: ASUSTeK
driver: nouveau v: kernel bus ID: 01:00.0 chip ID: 10de:1c82
Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.19.6 driver: nouveau
unloaded: fbdev,modesetting,vesa

OpenGL: renderer: NV137 v: 4.3 Mesa 18.0.5 compat-v: 3.0
direct render: Yes

The Mint only used the GeForce.

i don’t know inxi and so i think lsmod is the better source to get this kind of information and i would additional look at /etc/modprobe.d for blocked modules

Yeah, i will check that Monday. Until that, i open a bug report for this issue.
Edit: done, let’s discuss this there: https://code.chakralinux.org/chakra/chakra-iso/issues/89

When is the final release of Hawking expected?
