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...

1/5/2013: Another update: i finally got my hands on my friend's six-core amd fx 6300 / 8 GB ram machine. This thing is a beast under Porteus. My pack was build successfully against the upcoming Porteus V3 (rc1). 64-bit will be posted first, as soon as my testing is complete (no bugs so far!). Stay tuned!

Good idea! I will look into that and include a README in following uploads. It should be fairly easy, since most of useful info and descriptions is already included in the first 2 posts.

phhpro wrote:Um, tried some of the stuff, but no luck. Well, you said, it was for v3 RC1, and I'm on 2.1 until v3 final comes out. However, I would have thought at least themes should work. They don't. Had to reboot after trying that dark of yours. Whatever I selected afterwards to restore defaults would not succeed. Any idea?
OK this behavior is actually expected, so no need to panic. I will guide you through correct theme installation.
Some info first:
- Of all the themes, only the icon themes will work out of the box.
- The Boje gtk2/3 theme needs as dependencies: gnome-themes-standard, gtk-engines and gtk-engine-murrine.
- The DeLorean Dark theme will not work on Porteus v2.1 since its based on Slackware 14.0 and the required gtk2/3 packages are too old version for it.
- Never use any binaries (executables/libraries) that were compiled against a different installation base.

Now to get icons and Boje themes working:
1. Place only dimx-boje_ACYL_theme_and_icons.xzm and dimx-iconthemes.xzm in your /modules directory.
2. Delete ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file (located in either /root or /home/guest - according to who you log in as)
3. Download these:
http://download.salixos.org/x86_64/14.0 ... 64-1gv.txz
http://download.salixos.org/x86_64/14.0 ... 64-1gv.txz
4. Convert them to .xzm modules (right click -> convert to xzm) and place the .xzm's under /modules too. Activate them.
5. Now you should be able to choose Boje theme and F-Dark-Darkest-Black-Variants (icons) from lxappearance (aka "Customize Look and Feel")
6. Reboot to see if icon caches have rebuilt correctly and no broken icons are present. If you have still broken icons its an easy fix and I will provide more help.
Cheers! :friends:

and this is why you had a crash - by activating everything in the main theme folder you activated some binaries (themes' dependencies) that were built against a different base.
About rebooting: Im not 100% sure, but I think there is some kind of script that triggers to build menu/theme/icon caches if needed during boot. Possibly a re-login would do it. And I completely agree on rebooting - I very rarely reboot too :) . Thats why I wrote a simple script to rebuild theme caches without the need of rebooting/relogin, but I suggested rebooting because it would be easier.
