Re: The future of Porteus

- Ubuntu LST version is released every two years which is a good thing IMO. Point releases for LST brings updated kernel and Xorg stack. Small addition: The original LTS kernel get support for the whole 5-year lifecycle. Additionally, new kernel package (tagged appropriately) is released for LTS ve...

Re: The future of Porteus

So what would the advantages be of an Ubuntu based Porteus over arch? I've never used ubuntu. - Installed on millions of desktop pc's. Arguably has the largest user base (more so if also counting derivatives like Mint). Achieves high quality of desktop packages, due to lots of feedback/bug reports ...

Re: The future of Porteus

@Tonio I understand your dislike towards systemd, (I myself often oppose change). Here what Linus Torvalds says about it: Question: There wasn't a decent unix-like kernel, you wrote one which ultimately became the most used. There wasn't a decent version control software, you wrote one which ultimat...

Re: The future of Porteus

(Warning: long post, no worries: not a rant!) Hi, Brokenman and Porteus community! Happy new year and best wishes to everyone! It's been a long time since my last post on the forum in mid-2014. Back then, I have shared a UI/Productivity pack based on LXDE/compiz/cairo-dock, that I (and several frie...

Re: [Porteus-LXDE] UI-Productivity-SuperPack.Updated May 13,

UI pack for Porteus-LXDE 3.0 x86_64 (64 bit) posted under downloads (3rd post). Known issue: with both Porteus-LXDE 32bit and 64bit. Unrelated to this pack.

Re: [Porteus-LXDE] UI-Productivity-SuperPack.Updated Jan 11,

Finally managed to have some free time to finish the pack for Porteus 3.0.Lots of optimizations, extensive testing, bug fixes took place. Currently posting only 32bit pack, as my laptop doesnt support 64bit extensions. The following days I will have access to my 64bit desktop, and will provide this ...

Good job, freestyler! :)
LXQT was next on my list, after I finish the LXDE-UI pack! Looking forward to your release of LXQT (standalone/with openbox if possible).

Re: [Porteus-LXDE] UI-Productivity-SuperPack.Updated Jan 11,

I also think there would be no need for different build options, and I was rather surprised to see Ahau's signature on the package.
For now I will include the full patched gtk3 module in the pack and if later Ahau shows up, I will ask him for Slackbuild.
Thank you for your help,brokenman!

Re: [Porteus-LXDE] UI-Productivity-SuperPack.Updated Jan 11,

Nice job. Anything special about Ahau's gtk3 slackbuild? Did he modify it somehow? I havn't heard from Ahau for some time. He got very busy at work and hasn't been around lately. If I dont have the exact same build options as Ahau, chances are there will be lots of differences between compiled libs...

Re: [Porteus-LXDE] UI-Productivity-SuperPack.Updated Jan 11,

ok another update. real progress this time. I was able to locate the culprit of "submenu delay" bug. Its gtk3... Not sure how I missed it before, since it was my no1 suspect since the beginning, and the first thing I did was test versions >3.8.2. After rebuilding and downgrading to 3.4.4 (which was ...

Re: [Porteus-LXDE] UI-Productivity-SuperPack.Updated Jan 11,

I have actually built compiz and all other apps on vanilla Slackware 14.1, with same results... (Almost vanilla, since I built 3.13.6 kernel for it, keeping the same config options). I'm not sure reinstalling packages from Slackware would solve my problem. I will do another vanilla Slackware install...
