Porteus 3.1rc feedback

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.

XFCE-3.1 rc2 - 32bit...
Thanks for the new version...and here we go again: :wink:

Thunar devices
no hdd-partition icons (only file system ),the partions are accessable at /mnt

Different Icons for file manager and thunar file manager which in turn is the
same as for bulk-rename.
No su Thunar..?

fd0 is detected at boot,(because it make some noise),but not shown in /mnt
(and Thunar), I had to mount it manually with the "mount drives/filesystems..) app.

power manager > display > sleep never; switch off never but blank after 1 min (for testing)
doesn't blank the screen.
If it's working on your end, never mind..

In general,(imo), there are much to much Icons to start the same things
Wouldn't it be enough to have the (all) settings manager ?

IF one use the old "xfce applications menu", then there are Icons missing for
privilege granting,gcolor2,gftp,polyglot,isomaster,pburn,porteus faq,usm,virtualbox

@fanthom

In 3.0.1 all the RazorQt mainmenu icons come in two flavors, 64x64 png files and 48x48 svg files. The former are all the Porteus logo image that are showing in the RazorQt panel the latter are all the Oxygen logo image that is showing in the LZQt panel. All in /usr/share/razor/themes/ and /usr/share/razor/graphics. So the question is what/how is RazorQt able to use the png files, and can LXQt use the same approach.

Thanks Donald.

no hdd-partition icons
This is the default behaviour for Thunar as far as I can tell from other distros. Anything guest mounts becomes visible. I have included a CLI command to make a chosen partition show in Thunar (as root): showpart sda8 or showpart LABEL
This is also better for people with numerous partitions (I have 12) who don't want a cluttered desktop.

Different Icons for file manager and thunar file manager
Thanks. Will change to same logo icon and check super user thunar.
Fixed thunar icons (bulk rename is actually thunar so left that one)

fd0 is detected at boot,but not shown
Not sure how to get at this since I don't have any device recognized as fd0. I could perhaps create fake one but it will not react the same. Any help here would be appreciated.

power manager > display > sleep never
Will double check. It was working for me in rc1.
Confirmed working here. Perhaps use the 'Presentation mode' in by clicking the battery icon in the panel.

IF one use the old "xfce applications menu", then there are Icons missing
Odd behaviour. Should be the same. Will check it out.
Weird that standard does not use xfdesktop as in the right click on desktop applications menu. Anyway, added freedesktop compliant icon paths to fix it.

Thanks for getting in before final.
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.

LXQt 64-bit AF mode

I copied the mainmenu.png file from razor theme /usr/share/razor/themes/preta to /usr/share/lxqt/themes/flat-dark-alpha/. I then changed lines 238 and 247 in /usr/share/lxqt/themes/flat-dark-alpha/lxqt-panel.qss from mainmenu.svg to mainmenu.png. When I switched LXQt Appearance Config LXQt Theme green to flat-dark-alpha the Porteus icon was displayed for the mainmenu icon.

The razor theme files were from a module I created on 3.0.1 of just the razor theme files, nothing else and activated in LXQt.

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
# Make a module for use with Always Fresh mode 

# Color definitions
txtbld=$(tput bold)               # Bold
txtred=${txtbld}$(tput setaf 1)   # Red
rst=$(tput sgr0)                  # Reset

function redpswd() {
  echo -e "$1" $txtred  
}

if [ `whoami` != "root" ]; then
    redpswd "Enter root's password"
    su -c "sh $0 $1"
    exit
fi
echo $rst

mkdir -p /tmp/mod

cp -a --parents /usr/share/razor/* /tmp/mod/
du -h /tmp/mod/

echo
echo Press Enter to create module, Ctrl+C to end.
read

dir2xzm /tmp/mod /tmp/razorqt.xzm   &&   rm -rf /tmp/mod

echo 
ls -sh  /tmp/*.xzm
echo

@Ed_P
thanks a lot - you have done this task really quickly :)

are you up to the challenge for a second one? if yes then please try to do this item next (should be quite easy):

Code: Select all

- make syslinux bootsplash color scheme compatible with current background as "Porteus 3.1rc2" is barely visible
i'm talking about color scheme included in porteus.cfg

thank you

- hide all the items from 'Preferences' submenu as they are duplicated in 'LXQt settings' (Manjaro lxqt edition did it somehow) - anybody?
Open:
'/etc/xdg/menus/lxde-applications.menu'
last lines should look like:

Code: Select all

	<Menu>
		<Name>Other</Name>
		<Directory>lxde-other.directory</Directory>
		<OnlyUnallocated/>
		<Include>
			<And>
				<Not><Category>Core</Category></Not>
				<Not><Category>Settings</Category></Not>
				<Not><Category>Screensaver</Category></Not>
			</And>
		</Include>
		</Menu> <!-- End Other -->

	<Layout>
		<Merge type="files"/>
		<Merge type="menus"/>
		<Separator/>
                    <Filename>lxqt-config.desktop</Filename>
		<Menuname>DesktopSettings</Menuname>
	</Layout>
<Include>
                   <Filename>lxqt-config.desktop</Filename>
</Include>

</Menu> <!-- End Applications -->
(Additions/deletions begins at line 158, copied code from line 145-157 is the same.
Line " <Menuname>DesktopSettings</Menuname>" could be also deleted.
lxde-applications.menu has probably wrong permissions.

next lxqt bug:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# pcmanfm-qt
Error creating proxy: The connection is closed (g-io-error-quark, 18)
Error creating proxy: The connection is closed (g-io-error-quark, 18)
Error creating proxy: The connection is closed (g-io-error-quark, 18)

** (pcmanfm-qt:3055): WARNING **: The directory '~/Templates' doesn't exist, ignoring it
DELETE or MOVE TO TRASH dont work in PCManFM 0.8.0
yes - upstream bug (confirmed with Manjaro lxqt edition)
I can move files to Trash (lxqt, guest), but only inside guest directory (deleted from Desktop). Trash show me also my trashed files at /mnt/sda1/.Trash-1000

@tome
you guys are the best - thank you so much for your contributions.

regarding the Trash bug: i can move items to it but cant get them back and this is making this feature useless. i think i'll disable Trash all together if we wont find solution. this way people wont be confused that they can use it.

thanks

RE: LXQt-32bit, Porteus 3.1-rc2

menu.xml right-click Desktop pop-up menu

@fanthom,

I did not mean to leave you hanging concerning the menu.xml file. I'm working on it presently. Not being a power user, I may not be very fast. Hoping to have it finished Friday sometime, I hope that's okay?

Since this is LXQt 0.8.0, it looks like the closest possibility of a finished LXQt "may" be here for Porteus 4. With that in mind I'm duplicating as close as possible the panel main menu, so the right-click menu should be identical to going through the main menu. That way as LXQt comes to maturity we can make our own adjustments accordingly.

If time permits me, I may add a few immediate (one click) choices from the right-click menu. On my own system I have one click access to a Terminal, PCManFM, and Geany text editor. Then I have a sub-heading "For Experts Only" (really as though I'm one :-), there I have a Super User Mode Terminal, PCManFM, and Editor.

You should know also that my Super User Mode - PCManFM is not working. Clicking on the main menu/System Tools/Super User Mode - PCManFM brings up a dbus-launch dialog box asking for the root password, I enter toor, the dialog box vanishes and that's it.

Obviously since LXQt is still beta, some things are difficult. I have not found a character map to include in the accessories menu, which is a common practice.

Sean

@fanthom

Here's the menu.xml file cleaned up as best I could. Also, we are using no screensaver so a "lock-screen" option is not included, but everything else should work. Needs to replace the menu.xml file in /etc/xdg/openbox.

Code: Select all

- make syslinux bootsplash color scheme compatible with current background as "Porteus 3.1rc2" is barely visible
i'm talking about color scheme included in porteus.cfg
Sorry fanthom, not sure I can help with that one. I boot the Porteus .iso via Grub4DOS so I don't see the porteus.cfg directly, rather my Grub4DOS menu version of it. I like the new porteus.png image. Someone likes water, and so do I.

X interface to DE issue, highlighted by ImageMagick, still not resolved. Have verified that issue does not exist with DE lxqt and xfce. However KDE and Mate are both affected.

So it must be a difference in packages. I will try to track it down as xfce and mate are similar.
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.

LXQT 64
confirming pcmanfm-qt superuser not working, (with no useful output)
does work in openbox-session.
@sean
nice work with the menu, tho, 'openbox-menu' mightve saved a bit of work ;)
