Porteus 32bit svn for testers

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.

1) Icons of text mimtypes are not displaying correctly

2) and remove KFloppy here
OK i finally found the .desktop file for it and removed it.

3) Encoding for My Documents file.
Not sure what else to do here .... The correct encoding for en is iso-8859-1. Perhaps you can put in your rc.local file: export LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
I could set this as default however some applications don't understand utf8. Open console and enter: export LANG="en_US.UTF-8" and you will see the icon anme should display correctly.

The file itself is already in UTF8 by doing this:
iconv -f iso8859-1 -t utf8 Oldfile > Newfile

You can check it by issuing: file /usr/share/apps/kdesktop/Desktop/My\ Documents

4) I boot up Porteus 32bit svn and then run my USB Flash Drive, on Desktop i see these icons ->
Please fix it.Thanks again.
It works ok for me. I have tried different computers and USB sticks. All work ok.

5) Kword does't open my documents in .doc

How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.

brokenman,

I tried adding a user with useradd...........it worked the second time.........but, on booting into Kde, I'm presented with two kdesu boxes wanting a password for Kmixtray and Krandrtray.

The first time I added a user.......with useradd.......it hosed the entire system........on reboot nobody, including root, could log in.........../etc/group, passwd, gshadow, and shadow were all empty files.

I'm not sure yet what did it, whether useradd.....(doubtful).......or Kde login manager........I'm thinking it was Kde......I'm trying to get auto login for my girlfriend..........I'll try it again later.

@ Benny
As is said, the alpha 32 bit version is ONLY for testing the Trinity environement. With the official release this will be included.

@Roadie
I updated the svn last night, the popups should be gone. I will do a little testing for the autologin. There is a config file kdmrc that allows or disallow autologin. If you want to play with it just unpack 004-kde and open the file and look right at the end of it. It is very well commented and looks like autologin is disabled by default.

004-kde/etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc

Posted after 3 hours 29 minutes 34 seconds:
I've created a porteus application to convert .docx files into .odt for use in kword. It won't be part of release, but is usefull nonetheless.

Get it here

It does not help me.
