Buying new Hardware - need help selecting equipment that will work with Porteus

In the case of the kiosk version I believe every time the session is ended the memory is restored and the profile directory is cleaned so it would take a looong session to eat up your ram. The problem is not Porteus itself, but other apps, especially browsers. If the system runs out of memory, it w...

Buying new Hardware - need help selecting equipment that will work with Porteus

When runnning Porteus Desktop (not sure about Kiosk, but should be the same), the major bottleneck is the amount of RAM memory, since the whole system runs in RAM and there's no swap file by default -- in other words: system will freeze if there's no RAM available. Although Porteus itself doesn't ta...

Flash Video

It seems that there's something else with this link, because neither Opera 48 nor Firefox 57 can't load the video even with the last Pepper/Flash 27.

LXDE

No DE is available through USM as far as I l know. However there's a more polished LXDE here: LXDE for Porteus 3.2.2 x86_64

I finally had time to look at this. It was a long journey solving endless dependencies, but I got it! :)

New Slax is Comming !

I've just tried it and here are my impressions. Highlights: 1- first time I see a Debian based distro that is really small: 208 MB; 2- boots pretty quick: 14 seconds; 3- takes just 190 MB of RAM after a fresh boot; 4- apt-get can be bloatware, but we have to admit: it simply works; Things that I did...

openboard

I believe it doesn't matter if Openboard was compiled against Qt 5.7.1 or 5.9.2, since they're compatible. This xcb error is indeed infernal. Could you try answers 1 and 2 here ? In the meanwhile, you can try LXQt DE , since it already comes with Qt and won't show this xcb error, I guess. :good: Lat...

Deepin desktop and other DE or window managers

@francois, you'll have to work harder to upset me, hahaha! What I like about Xfce of the Calculate distro is that everything seems harmonic and professional, especially the icon theme. :good: Oh, and I hate that Whisker menu of our Xfce, so every Xfce that comes without it has my vote. BTW, brokenma...

LXQt 0.12 is out

You can ctrl + alt + f1 after LXQt finishes the booting process, so you can see all the warning/errors and post them here :) But what I can tell you is that the slim message was already reported. And as far as I know, it's normal. The shutdown warnings were also reported -- and some of them happens ...

LXQt 0.12 is out

@raja, what LXQt module are you using (link, please)? Can you reproduce this by booting on Always Fresh mode? Can you give us the full output with all these errors? Regarding 'activate' and 'deactivate' context menu entries, I'm pretty sure they appear for me. But I can double check if you point me ...

I'm giving up on porteus

I'm using LXQt. Here is the list of Python dependencies that I had to download: dnspython-1.15.0-x86_64-3_slonly.xzm python-certifi-2017.7.27.1-x86_64-1_slonly.xzm python-chardet-3.0.4-x86_64-2_slonly.xzm python-idna-2.6-x86_64-1.xzm python-jsonrpclib-0.1.7-x86_64-1_slonly.xzm python-pbkdf2-1.3-x86_...

I'm giving up on porteus

@donald, how did you manage to get all the dependencies? I couldn't find most of them inside Slackware repositories, so I had to download from Arch and rename /usr/lib to /usr/lib64, which maybe what's causing the problem. I hate Python programs so much! :crazy:
