Purpose-Built Porteus

Hi devs! It's been a while, but I wanted to put out an interesting idea for you. Over at Quirky Puppy, Barry Kauler released a new version that was very intriguing - a purpose built Puppy that was pre-installed with everything nescessary for Android app development, from beginner to expert. This str...

Docker similarities to Porteus

So correct me if I'm wrong - I probably am - but I've been reading quite a bit about Docker lately online, and the similarities - at least in concept - to Porteus struck me. As I understand it, Docker is designed as a software deployment tool. Each "container" holds it's own dependencies internally,...

Re: Porteus Pantheon Edition

Hi Bogomips, Yep, moved to a beta. So far, I've not had any significant problems. This is for my own use, so it's not the end of the world if it were to crap out on me. I've seen enough bug reports that it's definitely not ready for "production" use, which I guess means running your website off it :...

Re: Porteus Pantheon Edition

Pantheon shows a definite design philosophy, one influenced heavily by chrome os.

How hard would it be to recreate the look and feel under LXQT? You could even give it a cool name - call it "Parthenon" or something :)

Or better yet, "Sparta"

Porteus Pantheon Edition

I just switched my main distro from Linux Mint 17 XFCE to Elementary OS Freya. The Pantheon desktop is just beautiful. Suggestion, Porteus might want to look into adding it as an option.

Thanks!

Re: LXQT on Porteus

Hi! This is really exciting. I tried the Razor-QT desktop, but didn't much care for it. I like LXDE, but it's not very nice to look at (imo) so I'm hopeful about LXQT. The images I've seen look like a great blend of flash and function. I hope this is progressing well, I'd love to see this come to Po...

Bring the Rage

Okay, never seen a sub-section like this, so here it goes: What the heck Porteus People?! Why have you got to make this so easy? Don't you know linux is supposed to be the impenetrable, impossible-to-fathom OS of russian mobsters? This OS is so easy to use, practically anybody can install and run it...

I installed VLC!

To you guys, this might seem like a minor thing, but to me, it's pretty major :Yahoo!: One question: the process created a whole bunch of modules for dependencies, and they all have to be activated. I want VLC available, so I want to add it to /porteus/modules/, but adding them all will make things ...

Re: Print and scan module for Porteus 2.1

Requesting support for the Canon Pixma MX920 printer. The printer tool detects it fine, but there does not appear to be a driver. Second, and possibly much harder, Cups support for google cloud print. Chrome is syncing up with the printer fine, but any attempt to print fails by opening cups, which d...

Dual boot Porteus 3 and Linux Mint 17

I've got a 4-year-old laptop that runs Mint 17 XFCE fairly well, but I am envious of the lightning speed of my wife's new Chromebook. So I did a bit of digging and trying different minimal distros, and found Porteus LXDE. Wow! Talk about fast! And it's full linux! And it runs my ^#$#%^&^# Canon Pixm...
