New Users / Lockscreen Suddenly Changing (SOLVED)
« on: August 26, 2019, 02:41:53 am »
Hi there!

So what happened is, without a warning, the lockscreen changed. Instead of the usual blurred screen with timer, it's black. When I start typing the password, it turns to blue. If I hold the backspace until the password is erased, the screen turns red.

It's funny alright, but I wonder how we got there and how to change it back  :o

New Users / Cursor Randomly Jumps When Using Synaptics Touchpad (SOLVED)
« on: August 02, 2019, 12:01:17 pm »
The title says it all.

Whenever I enable touchpad, writing becomes a chore, as all of a sudden, the cursor will jump a couple of lines up (or something). It may not sound so bad, but it's really, really annoying and it breaks the flow of your work frequently.


I have searched the internet for solution, but I haven't found anything useful.

Open to try anything  :'(

Hey there brainy people,

I understand how to create a shortcut, but I don't know what command should I put in for it to open a directory when pressed.

Can you help?

Thank you

When I try to follow what the doctor orders here: https://electrum.org/#download

...and I try to run Electrum without installing, it ends up giving me this:

Code: [Select]
python3 Electrum-3.3.6/run_electrum
  File "Electrum-3.3.6/run_electrum", line 64
    sys.exit(f"Error: {str(e)}. Try 'sudo python3 -m pip install <module-name>'")
                                                                               ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

When I do the pip install, it gives me this:

Code: [Select]
The directory '/home/al/.cache/pip/http' or its parent directory is not owned by the current user and the cache has been disabled. Please check the permissions and owner of that directory. If executing pip with sudo, you may want sudo's -H flag.
The directory '/home/al/.cache/pip' or its parent directory is not owned by the current user and caching wheels has been disabled. check the permissions and owner of that directory. If executing pip with sudo, you may want sudo's -H flag.
Collecting Electrum-3.3.6
  Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement Electrum-3.3.6 (from versions: )
No matching distribution found for Electrum-3.3.6
You are using pip version 8.1.1, however version 19.1.1 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the 'pip install --upgrade pip' command.

When do as said, it gives me:

Code: [Select]
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/pip", line 9, in <module>
    from pip import main
ImportError: cannot import name main

All in all, I cannot get Electrum to work. Is there any way to overcome this and come out on top of it all?
