General Discussion / Re: howto change brightness?
« on: April 26, 2020, 05:25:11 PM »
There are several tools but I need to know what version you are using first and if you are using a laptop or desktop. With a desktop you can just adjust your monitor without having to install anything but I will post a link that might help you. You can try the power manager in settings to see if that helps.

Software Issues / Re: Hash Keys Do Not Match
« on: April 06, 2020, 09:55:46 AM »
Redownload the iso please as the iso was built and the md5sum and sha256 files were created at the same time and they do match to what was uploaded. Do not install anything that does not match as that is a real possibility that it was tampered with or corrupted from the download.

Release Announcements / SuperGamer 6 BETA
« on: March 11, 2020, 07:00:24 PM »
This release is based on 20.04 daily and may be very buggy. I included the Snap Store and some 2d games to play live. This has to be said for some reason, you cannot install the game installers running live. Apt is not setup on the live account and the live scripts do not allow this to happen. There are a few differences between this Beta and the SuperGamer v5 release. Beside the obvious newer base there are a few tweaks to the menu with it being different. I also included newer amdgpu firmware drivers to help with amd gpus.

I do have an iso that is based upon the new 20.04 daily base. I am testing it out now and will have my testers take a look at it. I included some 2d games and the Snap Store.

I had one on the main website not work but I hit reload and it worked. They are hosted elsewhere and the links work for all pictures that I tested so please show which picture you are referring to.

Release Announcements / SuperGamer 5 Release Notes
« on: January 12, 2020, 04:44:58 PM »
The SuperGamer v5 has arrived. It is based upon the 19.10 base, 64 bit ONLY, which has the 5.3 kernel and XFCE 4.14. I have included Installers for Steam, Lutris and PlayOnLinux as well as cleaned up the look and feel of it. Please DO NOT try to install the games running live as they will not install and they are ONLY to be installed after a Hard Drive install. Use the Live Boot to test your hardware. UEFI support is still hit and miss with the new grub but it does work in Live mode. I am aware of Ryzen 3 support and some motherboards not working. I am trying to figure out a fix as this is a Linux issue and others have issues. The firmware is corrupted on them for the Linux drivers. This is themed darker and the base does not have any games installed. This was done on purpose to give users a choice on how they want to customize their system. If a user want to install most of the games, they should use this, be warned, this will download almost 12GB's then have an installed size of around 20GB's, you need to run this out of a terminal:
Code: [Select]
pkexec apt install games*

Release Announcements / Re: New 19.10 based beta
« on: January 11, 2020, 10:28:22 AM »
I am aware of some issues with Ryzen and AMD graphics not working correctly. I am actively trying to figure out a fix that does not affect everyone. The good news is, that if you use NVIDIA graphics cards and select 3rd party install option while installing to the hard drive, you will get the drivers to install. Just to put things in perspective, it took several days of writing the game install scripts so that they worked like what I wanted them to do. Any user who has sudo access can install the games and the icons are removed from all users desktop and any new user desktop that might be added in the future as well as the menu being fixed for all users both current and future. Seems like a normal thing to do, but it is not setup that way by default with the games putting icons wherever they want. This only applies to Steam, Lutris and PlayOnLinux as installing those games I did not fix if they are broken as there are way to many of them to attempt. I also went back to Firefox for some security and performance compared to Chromium.

I think I have a RC1 candidate ready. It is going through outside testing to see if I forgot something or an issue that I do not have. I have added a desktop icon to install Steam silently with notifications letting you know to be patient as it is a silence install as well as another notification of it being done as well as deleting the desktop icon.

Release Announcements / New 19.10 based beta
« on: December 03, 2019, 10:17:44 PM »
I am building a 19.10 based beta. Here is a quick glance at the changed desktop.

There will be at least a couple of beta builds but this is pretty good right now and the iso is sitting at 1.4GB in size. I also took off Timeshift and put back on Systemback. I am aware of no support but it is easier to use for most people. I do have working iso's built. I will be doing a final one soon after I fix all of the little stuff and it is tested by a few testers. This is pretty stable but only time will tell.

Software Issues / Re: 5.4 kernel not working
« on: November 27, 2019, 11:21:30 PM »
I have heard reports of it not working. This is a Nvidia issue and hopefully they release an updated driver soon. I am assuming AMD/ATI drivers are in the same boat.

Here is the honest truth. What works for me does not necessarily work for others. I just hope that something I build adds to the community. There are many distributions from easy to hard and anything in between. If you have an issue, please post the problem so we can try to fix it. Just remember that sometimes there are no fixes for all hardware and circumstances. I hope you find a home free from Windows.

You can add the game section if you want. I will start later to do an actual install of the new stuff and test on how to get the games up and running.

Release Announcements / New ISO suggestions
« on: November 08, 2018, 05:55:07 PM »
I am hoping to release an updated ISO in December. I am going to try a few things and if it works then I am hoping UEFI will work, if not then the release will be an updated version so updates will not take so long. Please add suggestions to this thread on what to include or take out please.
