Testing nemesis update (Migration to Artix)

Maybe we should insist for manjaro support. you could try that... but i dont see it happening.. because artix plans to keep up with arch and manjaro lags behind( and some other issues they have with manjaro packaging decisions) what i was thinking was to keep manjaro repos, but as a lesser priority...

Nemesis artix based: a few problems

this is (one example of) where the arch wiki is unhelpful for anyone not using systemd (any reference to systemctl is a clue) the gentoo wiki is more openrc friendly: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Ntp#ntpdate for a one off: $ sudo ntpdate pool.ntp.org or $ sudo ntpd -gq and then if you want to sync t...

Can't get multiple versions of Firefox or Chrome to run

It could be because an update doesn't need to give a user another firefox.desktop file whereas a new install does. nope, i always run the update- script without a firefox module activated.. for some reason mozilla doesn't supply the .desktop file in there package.. If firefox starts via terminal on...

Testing nemesis update (Migration to Artix)

about icons: you need to run update-cache which will create a module with the updated caches.. (although it looks like that has resolved itself for you ??) it's probably safe to remove pacman-mirrors(manjaro pkg), but my previous attempts at a devel module and AUR functionality have failed, so, good...

Can't get multiple versions of Firefox or Chrome to run

these are known issues: firefox xzm is building without /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop (it will start from the terminal) (yes, the build script needs to be fixed) heres a firefox module with the .desktop file: firefox-56.0b10-x86_64-1-ncm.xzm and new chromium (>61) needs a newer mozilla-nss...

Testing nemesis update (Migration to Artix)

I was unable to install xfce DE with command: try xfce4 ;) generally if you get a 'not found' message use -Ss to search, which will usually provide the correct pkg(or pkg group) name 2) Each different package installation will propose the installation of the database. It does not persist though pma...

Pale Moon (Browser) 27.4.2 (2017-08-22)

just checked this, and it is correct ie. ddgo search uses https://duckduckgo.com/?t=porteus&q=
the update script just edits the existing duckduckgo-palemoon.xml rather than creating a extra duckduckgo-porteus.xml ..

Starting a DM with openrc

fairly safe to say this approach will not work with qingy, since it replaces agetty s, and displaymanager-openrc is all about X displaymanagers... with openrc init, i believe it would require the writing of a bunch of quingy scripts(openrc services) to replace the agetty services in the default runl...

Starting a DM with openrc

Since the inclusion of Artix repos to replace manjaro core repo (extra and communty are still used), openrc is now used for the init as well as service manager. This means that /etc/mtab is no longer used, which breaks our system for autostarting the Desktop Manager(DM) (and so the Desktop). So far,...

[How to] manually upgrade 3.5 base modules

Then the procedure is not clear: - remove pacman-settings.xzm then copying /etc/pacman.d/*, /etc/pacman.conf and /var/lib/pacman/sync and /var/lib/pacman/local/ALPM_DB_VERSION Here copying these files from where to where? that's remove pacman-settings.xzm or extract pacman-settings and copy those f...
