Hensyr :
Now you have the 310.00 driver installed.....
Go to ZMenu > System Tools > Amidistration > Nviidia X Server Settings !!!!
If you can''t find it there......
Right Click > ZMenu > Edit > Look everywhere in [ Edit Menu ] to see if it's there maybe hidden > unchecked !!!!

If something doesn't look right the least bit..use Wolfmans method fixing broken packages..and that should fix any issue that may arise !! :D :D

Re: [ Sticky ] Zorin OS 10 RC Keyboard Lock...

Postby yatorj » Wed Jul 22, 2015 8:49 pm

Installed 64-bit version on Gateway AMD 64 machine w/ 2 GB of RAM on 21 July. I love the new look! And the install worked the first time! (not true with OS 9...). Only package I installed was BOINC (thank you for getting to v7.4.23 - like to know where that came from as I am a BOINC Alpha Tester and the latest test version is 7.4.22 and the current recommended version is 7.2.42!!!).http://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php?dev=1

This morning my keyboard was locked and nothing I did would unlock it (and yes it's plugged in.... :-). BTW - not too Linux savvy but am pretty PC literate. When I rebooted I had to hit Esc since never went to graphic prompt I received 8 lines of "error: /dev/sdc,sdd sde sdb sdb sdc sdd sde ((n that order followed by) No medium found". The it asked for my passphrase (sda5_crypt). Finally came to logon screen. Saw some graphic anomalies, i.e, one pixel flash and lower right hand content never rendered. Now for the interesting part... when the screen turned off (I set it for 5 min.) the keyboard locked again!!!. HELP!
(This is my first post ever to any forum so forgive me if I'm not perfect...)

Hi, screensavers were replaced with Screenlock - when you boot into Zorin next time go to Menu | System Tools | System Settings and under 'Personal' look for 'Brightness & Lock' and just uncheck what you don't want to occur or choose drop-down and select 'Never' (Lock screen) and/or uncheck require password to unlock. :D

OK, some nice additions to themes and you can still personalise. When I burnt the new 32-bit Core it reported some files missing or corrupted. Booted into live mode no issue, the problem appeared to be with Firefox. Nice to see that Look Changer now works in live mode without the need to install. I do hope that indicator 3 applet will be consigned to the rubbish bin in future releases - it is still the one sore thumb on AWN that cannot be 'themed'. Also, still no Windows Key launch of the Menu. I still feel in the long run Zorin should:

1. Go down the Debian Route

2. Have a Cinammon Desktop with Mate add-ons (proven by MakuluLinux)

3. A panel that enables both Window keys to launch the Menu (as can be done in MakuluLinux)

I do like the new 'Web Browser' uncluttered and fast. I would hope that Otter develops enough to be considered in the next release (Community version of Opera).

Overrall 9/10 - so far.

The test for me will be how it deals with the new all-in-one printer - makulu-linux picked it up better than Zorin 9 (and just so I am clear here MakuluLinux Aero Beta 2) in that it actually appeared in the printer interface showing the mac address too!

On a positive note, I do like the contrast available now that Black theme is present! :D

In live mode changed Panel to 3d mode then back to Lucido and AWN applets still in centre of screen:

Re: Screenlock. OK - took your advice and selected 'Never' which works - my screen is just now on all the time. Can I assume this will be addressed in the official release? And why did the keyboard lock - not just the screen? Must be a 'feature'.... :-) On a positive note - the other great thing about OS 10 is that my printer (networked HP Envoy 4500) was added correctly and easily vs. what I had to go through in OS 8. Kudos to the dev team!

Developers may already know this, but I recommend upgrading to the latest utils and tools e.g. linux, openssl! Most are listed here: http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=zorin

I am new to linux, i apologize if users should do this themselves.

With Zorin 10 64 install My sound cards outputs are not recognised I'm using Asus xonar DG It only lists Headphones digital and surround sound but not speaker output.
( that is to say the green stereo speaker output on the sound card is not listed as a sound output option )

Onboard sound has been disabled in bios.

Zorin 9 64 ultimate works fine infact Zorin 9 is the only distro that works out of the box with both My Sound blaster and Asus sound cards that is kinda awesome when you think about it out of 10 or so distros tested only Zorin 9 works out of the box and no I'm not using both sound cards at once.

Hi ray, great post, just remember 10 is a release candidate and is only aimed at people who crave for the 'next best thing' or want the next piece of cutting edge technology. If you have 9 and are happy with it, STICK WITH IT - it will be supported until April 2019 by which time the next LTS should be ready. Don't fix what ain't broke. As Zorin 10 will be based on Ubuntu 15.04 it will only be supported til end January 2016. All of these developmental releases will eventually get fed back in to stable updates to Zorin 9 (Just like Ubuntu 14.04) and will eventually lead to the next LTS Release in 2019.
