Re: Upgrade Borked System

So..running pkg check -d yielded nothing. Running pkg check -s yielded a semi-infinite list of packages whose signatures did not match. I ran fsck successfully, got a report of a clean system, but that did not fix the problem. Is there a way to force a complete update to the system without reinstall...

Re: Upgrade Borked System

OK, I tried the above, but when I open Firefox, I still get just a black window and cannot add the toolbars or search; there is no url window.

Re: Upgrade Borked System

Erich: For Firefox, I cannot find xpi-utils with either Caja search or locate. Perhaps that's the problem? Should I try to install Firefox from the Mozilla web site? For mate-terminal, I get mikeb@ghostmate ~> gdb mate-terminal GNU gdb 6.1.1 [FreeBSD] Copyright 2004 Free Software Foundation, Inc. GD...

Re: Upgrade Borked System

OK, here's what I got. As before, Firefox opened a blank black window, which I then killed. The other two would not open a window: Welcome to fish, the friendly interactive shell mikeb@ghostmate ~> firefox 1532531664260 addons.xpi-utils WARN updateMetadata: Add-on {972ce4c6-7e08-4474-a285-3208198ce6...

Re: Upgrade Borked System

Eric: thanks for responding quickly! I took your advice and used Octopkg to uninstall Firefox, Clementine, and Mate-terminal, and rebooted. I then used Octopkg again to reinstall all three, but to no avail. Firefox opens a black window with the cursor, but no spinning wheel indicating an application...

Upgrade Borked System

After the last upgrade, I find that Clementine and Mate Terminal will not open at all, and Firefox completely disappeared. Reinstalling Firefox put it back on the menu, but it still will not start. Running pkg update and pkg upgrade as root claims that everything is ok. Please help?

Kernel Panic Report

I'm running a fully updated version of Ghost and MATE, FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE-p11. Today, while listening to internet radio on Clementine and playing a bit of Pysol solitaire, my system froze up with a loud tone coming out of the speakers. I forced a hardware reboot, which it did without the opening m...

Re: CUPS error-Workaround

In frustration and receiving no responses on this issue, I reinstalled Ghost 11.1, but went back to MATE. After the install, I installed all the updates generated by Octopkg, but still had the CUPS error. Then, Update Station popped up with a notification for an update labelled "11.1 Release p6". Af...

CUPS error-Fixed by Going from XFCE to MATE

I decided to look at XFCE on Ghost, and reinstalled with that desktop. However, I cannot get CUPS to work. I installed my HP 2420DN LAN printer using the Gutenprint driver as before, but it will not print a test page. The dialog box for "Printers" no longer shows the printer that I installed, so I c...

Customizing Attempt

Although I'm running MATE on another drive, just for grins I installed the XFCE version of GBD, and I'm trying to do a bit of customizing. I know how to change the slim bootup image, and in MATE that image remains as the desktop appears. In XFCE, it does not; the slim login background disappears onc...
