categories of tasteful wallpaper (bis or so)

I've tried Nemesis, and I hope it will be finally released as well. The future is near. It has been in testing for some time now and appears to be going well. Some small annoyances that we need to overcome and I think it could become a very popular system. I am absolutely convinced that it will be ...

Great! If need I can share psd files with all my artwork.
That would be nice, Blaze.

I think we should have some common host to share Porteus artwork related instead of releasing scattered links. (Maybe it's done and I'm not aweare) :pardon:

Brisk menu is fast and responsive. Start typing an app name, press return once you see it at top list... Bang. You would be pleased to know that MATE desktop in Porteus 4 will come with Brisk Menu :good: Thanks for the good news. Prior to Budgie, MATE was my choice for Porteus, but since Budgie wor...

categories of tasteful wallpaper (bis or so)

Glad you like it. For now I'm doing well with @Neko's APorteus Budgie builds. I find them fairly easy to build up new modules rather than SLAX minimalistic apt+savechanges approach. I've tried Nemesis, and I hope it will be finally released as well. I'm keeping an eye to the ARTIX develepment too. O...

ArchLinux packages manager for Porteus

@neko I have been trying your patches to systemd logout and, althought some systemd script is throwing errors, at the end your scripts got working and the drives are properly unmounted. Also, I suggest you to make this change inside your initrd.xz scripts as pointed by abelM here --> http://forum.p...

Porteus on a Memory Card

EDIT: Wonderful, wread . It will be very useful for me. I have a laptop with 1/2 USB 3.0 ports not working, and running Porteus from a pendrive, is occupying the only available fast port. (The other one I use for the mouse). Should be posible to have it all of it in a sdcard properly partitioned li...

cleanup script copy update

Hi abelM , your initrd.xz is located inside your /boot/syslinux folder in your Porteus media. You can uncompress and compress yourself from the terminal like @brokenman explains here --> https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?p=53718#p53718 Also, you can have a look at this article --> http://www.p...

Deepin desktop and other DE or window managers

I tested both the full distro and the DE for Porteus (thanks to neko ), and I think it's really well done! Both in terms of aesthetics and usability -- reminds me of MacOS. However, it's very resource hungry, so it's not a DE I would use on my daily basis. I'm running neko 's APorteus Budgie with 6...

ArchLinux packages manager for Porteus

@Raja One of the safer things I think I do whenever I use a live-USB portable distro, is to have Conky monitoring disk I/O, to be sure when a write operation has ended. Since then, the problems have decreased. The other rule of gold, is to always have backups. Today is a fairly cheap and fast soluti...

Deepin desktop and other DE or window managers

Has anyone used the deepin desktop? What do you think about it? Is it heavy or rather lean compared to the other desktop we are accustomed here in the porteus distribution? What about papyros? Or do you have some preferences for without desktop, window manager only? Other desktops on porteus: fvwm ...
