I am beginning to wonder if you do any searching before you post from some of your help requests. This is now your 5th help request since registering a day ago.

I'm not sure if anyone has already mentioned this to you, or not, but pictures are unappreciated on technical help requests. Do not post pictures of text.

You have not provided proper readable system specs as text, therefore your post is totally uselss as I can not read pictures on my cell. If you continue in the manner you are currently most of your posts are going to end up in the trash heap.

Read the Garuda Wiki entry on "Reporting bugs".

Post a proper inxi output as explained on the Wiki.

Edit your OP to include a properly formatted textual inxi output of your system specs. Search the forum as this topic has come up many times before.

Edit your OP to include:

inxi -Fxxxza

Once this is done I will return your post to the open forum.

Thank you for your cooperation.






Thank you, Ill follow the right format from now on.

Have a good day.


Thank you.

You as well.
