No Bluetooth

Check if your rc.bluetooth is executable. I guess it is not.
If so do as root a chmod x to /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth.
Good luck!

No Bluetooth

@Kulle Please state which Porteus edition you are running. Someone who has bluetooth working on your platform will give you a hand... Regards! Edit: Most probably your bluetooth daemon is not running. To use it you will need a bluetooth dongle or similar device. If your system uses initd try as root...

Wine 2.0 (Windows app runner)

This is AutoCAD 2006 on Porteus!

Autocad is one of the most complex applications for windows. This is how it looks under wine!
Some features still do not work ok. But it is amazing what reverse engineering can achieve...

kde 5 plasma: kdenlive and video editing tweaking

@Brokenman, @francois You don't have to worry: In the future I will submit all sources of the modules I build with references to the authors. Or, maybe better: we can build from KDE sources, or not? BTW, in the new face of the forum there are no "XZM Team" members. Maybe I am fired for cooking my ow...

Chromium and Flashplayer

@alienbob: Sorry I didn't find your flashplayer. I got it from Adobe. Besides, I don't remember having used your chromium slackware version; I built it from chromium.org, otherwise I had given credit to you in the package, as I usually do with KDE; take a look at this: root@porteus:~# cat /var/log/p...

Chromium and Flashplayer

I like Chromium better, because it is open source. :Yahoo!: But it has no Flashplayer built in.... The solution is not trivial. Installing a Flashplayer plugin is not enough. You must extract chromium and edit the file 00-default.conf to tell chromium which version of Flashplayer you are using and w...

Google-earth 7.1.8 x86-64 update

By the last update of porteus, in module 001-core, GLIBC was updated from 2.22 to 2.23. My Google Earth stopped working..... Then I recalled that to make GE lsb-compliant, I had to link ld-lsb-x86-64,so,3 to ld-2.22.so. So I just changed the link to ld-2.23.so and it worked again. The revised porteu...

Re: Do you use LibreOffice?

I did use Libreoffice until I found WPS. The main reason to switch was startup speed. I give my students projects to solve using a spreadsheet; to check their work took very long starting up thirty times, then for each student a startup was necessary to clean up buffers. And no way to use windows wi...

Re: How can I reset the guest account?

@Ed_P An interesting approach wread. But it requires one to know what things get changed when one makes a configuration change and how to make modules of those changes. And if it isn't obvious it requires learning and not everyone wants to do that. :) No at all, It is very easy: in af mode, after ev...

Re: How can I reset the guest account?

Excellent Francois! .. and you did not mention that some advanced users erase all the changes folder. When I start my machine and see a changes folder I ask always who has been tampering with my computer.... I save my changes and make a module of each change and put them in a folder named Settings i...
