Disable Tabs

Hello BlackCat, I dont think this is possible with Chrome. Perhaps you could disable navigation bar completely and use some extension to have navigation buttons visible on the screen? Alternatively you could use conky theme with back/forward buttons to emulate key press (xdotool) when you click on t...

rsync folder and daemon

Rsync daemon is not needed if you sync the content over ssh: rsync -av --delete -e "sshpass -p toor ssh -oUserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no" /tmp/work/website 192.168.1.22:/opt/storage In this case i'm using sshpass to avoid typing the ssh password and syncing local /tmp/work/...

rsync folder and daemon

Hello archaon21, There is no need to remaster the ISO as everything could be done using 'run_command=' parameter. You need to enable persistence for /opt/storage first and then sync your content every 40 minutes from any rsync enabled server. Sample: run_command=sh /opt/scripts/persistence; ( while ...

Graphics with intel 945G extremly slow

Even SIS GPU should be good enough for text mode.

Please enable VESA framebuffer with 'vga=792' parameter and check if that helps. If this resolution is not supported then you may try these:

Xbindkeys

Hello BlackCat,

You could use openbox key bindings for this task:
http://openbox.org/wiki/Help:Bindings

Have a look on /etc/xdg/openbox/rc.xml from 003-settings.xzm module. We have some bindings present there already.

Thanks

Touchscreen and drivers

Hello SVblue, Two things to note: 1) We cant guarantee anything in relation to the hardware as we do not write drivers.

Graphics with intel 945G extremly slow

Perhaps its a modesetting issue,

Please post the output of following commands
lspci -knn
lsmod

You may redirect them to a file first to be able to upload.

If KMS enabled driver (like i915) is not used then you may try enabling standard VESA framebuffer with following cheatcode:

Code: Select all

vga=792

setup hangs downloading java.xzm

Thanks guys.

@pco
Maybe you have not enough RAM to fit java component? You would need 512MB or more.

Anyway - see here:
