Re: Software to check if a Deb package is safe to install

[...] APPIMAGE files. These files install nothing and come complete with all the libraries, etc., required by the application. Prior my first post I did some research about AppImage and Flatpak (or Snap)... I agree with you about AppImage, and it's also very simple to use. But AppImage apparently r...

I just used virustotal.com to scan a .deb file. It came up with no detections.
You mean that there was no known threat or that nothing was shown in return?

Software to check if a Deb package is safe to install

I'm aware that as a rule of thumb software should be installed from Software Manager, but it's not always possible. I was wondering if there is a way to check if a Deb package I've found on Internet is safe to install? I don't have enough knowledge to understand what is inside the package would do p...

Re: Unable to pair Logitech MX Anywhere 2s via Bluetooth

I suppose your mouse has already been paired... so in your terminal run:
bluetoothctl
It will give a result of all your bluetooth devices.
Then select your MAC mouse ID and after [bluetooth]# run:
info followed by your MAC mouse ID.
and post the result here.

Alternative to xserver-xorg-input-synaptics

I always had problems with the mouse pointer which jumps erratically and recently I found a method which worked for little while, see comment 32, but does not anymore.
In fact now my touchpad does not work at all. Should I reinstall xserver-xorg-input-synaptics or is there an alternative?

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

I finally found why the sounds was completely messed up on my laptop. The culprit was: Firejail. Since I uninstalled Firejail the sound is working fine everywhere.
Thank very much for your help MrEen.

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

Hello MrEen, Sorry to disturb you again... I finally got a response from someone at VB forum. The guy who is trying to help me he/she is not a Linux/Pulse audio guy and could not interpret this: 00:00:44.329493 Audio: Enable stream '[PulseAudio] Front' failed with VERR_INVALID_POINTER 00:00:55.46391...

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

When everything but VBox is working, shut down the guest OS, go to Settings > Audio and change 'Audio: ICH AC97' to 'Audio: Intel HD Audio' then restart the guest OS. Thanks but I had tried to change that before and it did not work. I tried all different combinations of 'Host audio Driver' and 'Aud...

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

Thanks Flemur but I had already tried apulse and it did not work... When I launched VB, sounds is working fine in VB but not in SMPlayer, Firefox, etc, and when I run pulseaudio -k then the sound comes back in SMPlayer and Firefox but stops in VB. SMPlayer and VB have always been properly configured...

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

I think what you need to do is run pulseaudio -k , then launch VB. Yes, if I do that the sound works on VB but the sound is not working on SMPlayer. Then if I run pulseaudio -k again, the sound comes back on SMPlayer but does not work anymore on VB. When VB is running and I use pulseaudio -k then t...

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

Isn't it strange when I run pulseaudio -k that actually pulseaudio starts working on Firefox and SMPlayer? It should be the opposite... Again I still don't have sound on VirtualBox... I thought that running pulseaudio --start would make the sound comes back on VirtualBox, but it does not... Any othe...

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

I found something interesting... It's not only when I reboot my computer that pulseaudio turns off by itself. It turns off like that from time to time (I haven't discovered why yet). When pulseaudio is off I have sound on VirtualBox but NOT on Firefox and SMPlayer. When I run pulseaudio -k the sound...

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

I'm sorry. For KDE users the command should have been kdesudo ... . I've never used KDE and totally forgot about that. That's ok, no worry. Regarding VirtualBox, is vboxusers in the output from running groups $USER in the terminal? Yes, it does appear in the output... But there is no sound on Virtu...

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

Now that pulseaudio has been reinstalled SMPlayer does not work again. I changed the audio settings, I tried pulse, alsa, etc, but nothing works.
Firefox also does not work.
