kde module for porteus aka sensei

Post#1 by francois » 19 Sep 2015, 01:07

I start this thread to provide a kde desktop for the porteus/arch aka sensei os authored by stifiling:
https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=114&t=2386

There is currently one desktop available for porteus version 3.1rc: xfce:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/senseig ... rce=navbar

I am currently building a kde version, kde4 or 5. I am following the archlinux wiki for both of them:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/KDE#Plasma_Desktop
The archlinux kde packages have changed names from kde4 to kde5.

Hoping to keep it to a minimum installation, I am following these
1.0 howto to install kde4:
https://www.howtoforge.com/tutorial/arc ... e-desktop/
kde4 under arch linux is no longer maintained.

2.0 howto to install kde.
2.1 plasma5 minimal install:
http://www.linuxveda.com/2015/02/27/how ... rch-linux/

Code: Select all

pman -S plasma-desktop dolphin konsole

Code: Select all

nano ~/xinitrc
insert:
exec startkde

At command line:

Code: Select all

startx
2.2 minimal install plasma 5 with a few useful package :
More packages and adjustments proposed in an old thread (the method to install plasma is no longer valid):
http://www.techrapid.co.uk/linux/arch-l ... rch-linux/
root ~ # pman -S plasma-desktop dolphin konsole gwenview kdegraphics-ksnapshot ttf-freefont ark p7zip zip unzip unrar wxgtk

2.3 see porteus kde for additional useful packages

As kde/plasma is still in development, it is possible to have the latest development thru kde(5) unstable:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/KDE
/etc/pacman.conf
[kde-unstable]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

@francois

I have uploaded the UP.Sensei-v3.1-rc1-i486.iso.
http://www.mediafire.com/download/7w5d1 ... 1-i486.iso

I don't know whether this ISO might be usefull for your study or not.


It was updated from Sensei-v3.1-rc1-i486.iso.
1. kernel was updated to 3.18.21.
2. Almost ArckLinux Packages Were updated to current versions by the ArckLinux SPM.
This tool is included in ISO
(UP.Sensei-v3.1-rc1-i486.iso@/porteus/optional/archspm-15.09.08-noarch-5.xzm)

It could boot from HDD via USB3-STA on EFI PC.
It could run on GUI mode (run level 4).
But, There are many issues about network, application execution, etc.

Thanks.

I am unable to log out of X graphical environment. And there is not even a terminal emulator to do so. Log out will just log out temporarily and reboot into xfce.

Thanks.

@francois
I am sorry that the ISO disturbed your study.
Please consider as that it is a sample which
ArchLinux packages are constructed on cross environment (Porteus environment).

If it would be more updated in order to be usable, more efforts would be needed.

Thanks.
