LXQt 0.11.1 x64

Here is a place for your projects which are not officially supported by the Porteus Team. For example: your own kernel patched with extra features; desktops not included in the standard ISO like Gnome; base modules that are different than the standard ISO, etc...

Anybody knows how to disable 'Show hidden' flag in PcManFM-Qt?
If I uncheck this option in View --> Show Hidden of PcManFM-Qt - after close and open PcManFM-Qt nothing happens and I see hidden files and folders again.

This option ShowHidden=false in [Desktop] and [FolderView] sections

Code: Select all

/etc/xdg/pcmanfm-qt/lxqt/settings.conf
/home/guest/.config/pcmanfm-qt/default/settings.conf
/home/guest/.config/pcmanfm-qt/lxqt/settings.conf
/root/.config/pcmanfm-qt/default/settings.conf
/root/.config/pcmanfm-qt/lxqt/settings.conf
does not work for me.

You need to restart LXQt session to see the changes. But the correct way is really changing these files. :good:

I have a challenge to you:

Code: Select all

sudo pcmanfm-qt
...and find a way to get the correct style :D

fulalas, logout or reboot does not solve this issue.

Code: Select all

@Blaze, I can't reproduce this. Try to download the original module again and doing these modifications inside /rootcopy, and then rebooting as guest.

fulalas, I downloaded the original module again and have done these modifications

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# cat /mnt/sdb1/porteus/rootcopy/etc/rc.d/rc.local
#!/bin/sh
#
# /etc/rc.d/rc.local:  Local system initialization script.
#
# Put any local startup commands in here.  Also, if you have
# anything that needs to be run at shutdown time you can
# make an /etc/rc.d/rc.local_shutdown script and put those
# commands in there.

sed -i 's|ShowHidden=true|ShowHidden=false|g' /etc/xdg/pcmanfm-qt/lxqt/settings.conf && sed -i 's|ShowHidden=true|ShowHidden=false|g' /home/guest/.config/pcmanfm-qt/default/settings.conf && sed -i 's|ShowHidden=true|ShowHidden=false|g' /home/guest/.config/pcmanfm-qt/lxqt/settings.conf && sed -i 's|ShowHidden=true|ShowHidden=false|g' /root/.config/pcmanfm-qt/default/settings.conf && sed -i 's|ShowHidden=true|ShowHidden=false|g' /root/.config/pcmanfm-qt/lxqt/settings.conf
root@porteus:~#
+ deleted my current changes and reboot. As result

I think that my crutch with sed commands in the /rootcopy is not required.
How about ShowHidden=false option in [Desktop] and [FolderView] sections by default?

Thanks.

@Blaze, it seems that everything is working now, right? :)

Regarding setting hidden files to not be shown by default, as I told you before, this is too Microsoft feelings for me -- this idea of hiding things from users without a good explanation, like parents hiding knives from their children. :P Do you have a good reason to defend that idea?

fulalas, Blase is not asking for the option to be removed simply not the default. And that is how it is set in other file managers that I have used and I am sure others also.

If you desire openness for files you must make all root folders accessible by guest also. :twisted:

@Ed_P, I know his proposing just to change the default, but I'm questioning precisely this. OK, today many (or maybe all) FMs choose to not show hidden files. But why? What's the advantage of that? I think it worths to debate this idea, don't you think? :)

Well, I, and I think most others, prefer to see the folders and files that we create.

The advantage of hiding these hidden folders, as a default, it makes new users are less likely to change something they shouldn't without knowing what they are doing. And then having to ask for help on the forum rather than enjoying their new system. :)

@Ed_P, you convinced me. Of course for me it doesn't make any sense, but I understand that for others maybe I'm the crazy one :D

I'm uploading a new module with hidden files not being shown by default, together with some minor improvements. :good:

New version uploaded (same link).

I've finally managed to get rid of all undesired console messages, so at this moment we have zero undesired warnings and messages polluting the console output (ctrl + alt + f1). :good:

Fixes:
- Removed GLib console message output;
- Removed XDG_RUNTIME_DIR console message output (thanks, jssouza!);

Changes:
- Improved some LXImage-qt shortcuts;
- For now on hidden files aren't visible by default (it's possible to show them by pressing ctrl + h, however it works for the current folder only);

Openbox or LXQt locales does not fix this bug:
  • if right click on the path bar of pcmanfm-qt - all menu in English
  • buttons in dialog windows of pcmanfm-qt in English :wall:

Hi fulalas,

I used the lxqt module yesterday to check the lxqt-sudo pcmanfm warning. A quick feedback on the module:

It did not recognize the laptop's battery. Even when I try to enable it from Power Management Settings -> Enable Battery Watcher, a message comes saying "No battery! lxqt could not find data about any battery - monitoring disabled!" Although, on another DE (cinnamon) with the same base modules battery is detected.

BTW, 43 mb that includes qt5 as well as gtk3 and gtk2 applications is wow! :good:

I was also happy to see you included "Porteus Modules". Glad that you decided to include my humble script in lxqt :)

Hmmm... Can be my mistake, but I'm not sure if I can reproduce it. Could you try Manjaro LXQt first? There's a recent live ISO that seems great.

I did my best to keep just what's needed. But to be fair, this module is a constant working progress. There's still room for some improvements. My next goal is to release a version with fully working /var/log/packages so users can install/uninstall packages easily.

I tried to keep everything that comes with the original Porteus. But I think bundles isn't working properly. I need to check this. And thank you very much for the script that sets XDG_RUNTIME_DIR! Together we all can make amazing things, right? :)
