New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

Fast copy in XFCE thunar

Fast copy in XFCE thunar

This has limited value for guest user because of permissions problem.


EDIT: I have improved script so that it can be used by guest to move files
to /root :Yahoo!:

copy-fast-porteus.tar.gz instructions are inside archive

..but I still find this script useful.

Very useful. Would be good to have a similar option which convert txz to xzm and copy it to /modules directly. Yes, I know that I'm very lazy :D

I improved the script so that the guest user can use the script to move the file
to /root i.e. permission is now granted :Yahoo!:

Notes:
1) Only Thunar can use this script

2)the pinstall script only works if the previous v1.9 of copy-fast
has NOT been installed (sorry for that problem but the pinstall.sh
exits if it spots the words 'Copy to...' in the menu so a correct installation
is not possible.)

New version 2.1

- solved a permissions problem for the guest user.

It should run correctly for guest now.
