    Check the Wiki.It has something on how to setup fingerprint scanners. There are also some things there you can try if it doesn’t work after installation, as the hardware of the scanners can be a problem with newer software.

    1. Good…

    2. When you install the OS, you can select whatever locales and Languages you need…
    After installation when you boot into the OS, open “Settings Manager” (you can find it in the bottom Dock with the cogwheel symbol). Now select “Languages”. Under “Language support” click on “Install / Remove Languages…”. If you need more languages, click on “Add…” and select the other languages you need. When that is done you should be back in the “Install / Remove Languages” Display. Now if the display shows your Languages aren’t fully installed, select that Language, then click on “Install language packs”. When that has finished, repeat the procedure for all the other languages that haven’t been fully installed. When done, all your languages should show a green text with “Fully installed“. After that close that window. Now under Language and Region, select the Language you need, then click on “Apply System-Wide”. Reboot, and most of your OS should be displayed in your prefered Language. Be aware that this won’t apply to everything, as not everything has been translated to all possible Languages.

    3. There are no PDF manuals in any Language for MakuluLinux Core. That shouldn’t be necessary as most things are pretty straight forward and simple. If you run into problems check the Website’s “Wiki” pages, there you can see some tutorials etc, but they are all in English. After all, the International accepted Language in IT is English.

    4. Sorry, no Idea, I never used shashlik…

    I’m afraid I don’t understand what you mean. Maybe you should ask a friend who speaks English to translate for you. Automatic translators like Google translate usually don’t work well at all. They might be able to translate single words, but when it comes to sentences they tend to pull everything out of context, so at the end it is not understandable.

    Please ask your Questions in English. Thanks.

    But the above might still help, as it may still be using the wrong firmware. If you remove the radeon folder and and create a symlink called radeon pointing to the amdgpu folder, that should make sure an amdgpu firmware actually gets used (the utility I mentioned earlier, radeon-profiler, should also tell you which firmware is in use).

    A further way to make sure the correct driver is used is to have something like an amd-gpu.conf file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ with contents something like this:

    Section “Device”

    Identifier “AMDGPU”

    Driver “amdgpu”

    EndSection

    There could also be some further Options you could define in that file which might help, but for those I wouldn’t know the details.

    Although the Wiki article handles another problem, it might give you a general idea:

    Display Acting funny, Tearing, Cursor erratic, etc

    I found something that could have to do with this.

    First copy the files from /lib/firmware/radeon/ over to /lib/firmware/amdgu/ (To begin with don’t overwrite any files in the destination). Then rename /lib/firmware/radeon/ to something like /lib/firmware/radeon.orig/, or just move the folder somewhere else completely. After that create a symlink named /lib/firmware/radeon/ pointing to /lib/firmware/amdgpu/.

    Now reboot and check if it works.

    I have no idea. It seems also to do with your particular GPU type, as with my older GPU’s it works (AMD, nVidia and Intel). Maybe you should also check with AMD support about this issue.

    Another thing you can try, there is a utility in our repo, the radeon-profiler. You can try installing and running it. Besides giving you details on your GPU’s, it also alows you to change certain settings.

    Have you tried plugging in the 2nd Display after logging in? On Ubuntu where a new 5.something kernel had been installed via UKUU, I was only able to use the 2nd display after logging in and the attaching the display. With the original 4.15.46 kernel (not installed via UKUU) that was not a problem. On Debian I havent had that problem either, using the current 4.19.0-4 kernel. So it could be a kernel issue and how it was built.

    I’m not sure I can help here, as my GPU’s are all older, and I usually only use 1 GPU which has multiple outputs (for example one VGA, one DVI on the same card, or 2 DVI’s on the same card), and there multiple displays work fine.

    But maybe if you just attach the output of xrandr, that might give some insight?

    I’ve never used a PPA in a Debian based distro, and even if it is possible, I wouldn’t recommend it. The problem is that Ubuntu relies on different dependency versions than Debian Testing does (in many situations). So even if you can get a PPA added, the software may still not be install-able because of unmet dependencies.

    The main difference is the look’&’feel, and that LinDoz uses Cinnamon as the Desktop, while the other 2 use XFCE. So it’s mainly “Eye-Candy” that is different. Compared to other distro’s I have tried, all MakuluLinux’s perform a lot better.

    There is a Wiki that shows how to do the installation:

    Core is the newest MakuluLinux, but the iso’s of both Flash and LinDoz have been updated. MakuluLinux is a free-time project, so any donations are very welcome…

    There will be a 32 bit version out later. Does your CPU support PAE?

    I don’t really understand why the efi file needs to be spelt out…

    But if I’m not mistaken it should be /dev/sda1/EFI/MakuluLinux/grubx64.efi. The /dev/sdax though can change, as this depends on the hardware and if something else has already been installed on the disk.
