3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

The wrong files are located at /usr/share/GConf/gsettings in 003-cinnamon. These files are read at activation time by /usr/bin/glib-compile-schemas to build caches at /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas, resulting in wrong caches that lead to the black screen at start. Not sure I follow. Could you please e...

Interesting fix ... not so sure it is the right way to do it though. Is this an upstream bug in gnome-keyring?
Gnome Keyring Daemon was not able to allocate secure memory. So CAP_IPC_LOCK capability was set on the binary.

3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

brokenman , gnome-keyring-daemon is started in xdg autostart. In rc.4, I am just setting capabilities on the binary itself, I think to supress some warnings. Maybe there is another place this can be set. This has to be done as root. Ed_P , ok, other than that rc.4 should be same as that of 3.2.2. r...

3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

I don't understand how booting to text mode then starting slim or startx manually gets around the booting hanging problem. Booting to text mode and then starting slim/X does two things: 1. Bypasses calling of /etc/rc.d/rc.4 2. Gives some time for something in base to stabilize before X and the DE (...

3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

Ed_P, could you try booting with your 3.2.2 changes into text mode (cheatcode 3).
Then, either login as root and then run slim
Or, login as guest and then run startx
Please check if any of the above works with your changes.

Brisk menu is fast and responsive. Start typing an app name, press return once you see it at top list... Bang.

There is no module building device. I am not shure there ever will be.
At https://github.com/Tomas-M/linux-live/b ... mium/build, you can see how the chromium slack bundle is made. Similarly you can make your own bundle.

Saving google account settings

Does anyone know how to save google account information in persistence (which files to save), so that I do not have to log in to google from a web browser upon every boot? The problem is every time I log in to google (say, gmail) from a new login session, it sends me a mail asking me to verify if it...

[Solved] Dropbox?

ImportError: No module named pygtk
The error message is slightly misleading. python gtk2 bindings need both pygtk-2 as well as pygobject-2. python gtk-3 bindings need only pygobject3.

Install pygobject-2.28.6 for your architecture from slackware, and see if it works.
