[Solved] Qt centric default for LxQt/Porteus...

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.

[Solved] Qt centric default for LxQt/Porteus...

Post#1 by blue4meridian » 17 Dec 2014, 00:10

Salutations...

Is it possible to use QtParted instead of GParted as a default in the next release of LxQt/Porteus?
And on a different note... is it possible to also include Unetbootin' in the default menu?

It's not in the repo but can be found here.

Best Regards...

this is great idea as Gparted brings a bunch of unnecessary deps. must check if QtParted has the same (or at least similar) number of features first.

if everything goes well QtParted will be introduced in next release - thank you for this suggestion.

Although not a common default utility for distros like GParted...
Unetbootin' performs an important function which is...
...making distros portable. Is it possible to make this a default?

i see no benefit of adding unetbootin by default. we have our own installer and unetbootin can be pulled from the repo if it's necessary.

Yes you are correct. However...I was thinking along the lines of VirtualBox and ISO Master...
having a default utility that like those two... works with all iso's (distros other than just Porteus).
