Root has no profile as yet, hence the missing icons.

Code: Select all

cp -r /home/guest /root
there is not the .bashrc in both guest and root path and I cannot get the autologin root
This file doesn't exist by default. You can add it. To get login as root you can edit /mnt/sdXy/config/login
Brokenman, I edited login in /config folder but it does not work.
I'm going to try again.

brokenman, I still can't test your version yet. I would like too.

EDIT: Added more info.

What I mean is 32bit version of your Porteus Nemesis.

I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

my mistake about 05-dev....it was a leftover from my prev hard drive nemesis....bad me

/etc/inittab it defines what is supposed to happen if a member holds down ctrl + alt + delete key. For me, it brings up the task manager instead of shutting down.
https://daveden.wordpress.com/2012/09/2 ... eat-sheet/
LXDE specific bindings
snip
LXTask (task manager) ctrl + alt + del
home/guest/.config/openbox/ *.rc file I will attempt to use this new config instead of c a del
line 314 and up
<!-- Launch Task Manager with Ctrl+Alt+t -->
<keybind key="A-C-t">
<action name="Execute">
<command>lxtask</command>
</action>
</keybind>
OK a simple logout to login manager is sufficient to login and have C + A + t now take me to task manager ....WOO HOO but there are display issues in doing so...so newbies would be better off doing a full shutdown restart . I am not sure what I had so won't report what happened here. so C + A + t now works as expected but C + A + del does not work for my current config.

I am thinking I might be tempted to remove that line all together from /etc/inittab and inject the shutdown key combo into the rc file?

I deleted the shadow file from changes/ so am not getting the respawn error at the moment.

minor bug
Please install adwaita-icon-theme so the network applet shows buttons to not mislead new members whether their network is enabled or disabled please

I know how to hover my mouse and tell for my ethernet but others may not?

2) I am about to edit /etc/inittab by command but nano not found

Please install adwaita-icon-theme
I removed it because it is huge. I can work through and create symlinks for required icons but icon themes are what add weight. I try to find something nice and then strip it down. There are some icons missing (more in transmission after fileopen) but I will track them down.

In KDE ctrl+alt+del brings up the shutdown dialog. Probably lxde specific problem. The keybindings will overwrite this default in inittab.

Jack I will try to build 32bit tomorrow. Tried last night but had failure. Then I realized it was 2am and I was building 32bit from a 64bit distro. Was time to sleep.

Ed_P can you please double check that laptop screen turns off when you close lid? I had to stick my nose in the gap to see it come one when I opened the lid. It was quick. I believe I may have found the answer to making it sleep deep.

I am spitting the dummy on attempting to edit the /etc/inittab. In my last bootup I only amended 2 files the rc file and the inittab file and I got the respawn issue.

By deleting etc/inittab from my changes dir I am now able to boot up without the respawn issue.....but currently lack the skills to resolve it.

ctrl + alt + t still works for me...in bringing up the task manager so all is not lost.

@brokenman
I can tell you are tired so hopefully you will re-read this with a fresh mind
Please install adwaita-icon-theme..snip I removed it because it is huge
That may be true....but you currently have firefox in the iso. I prefer its outside the iso and then maybe you can put adwaita back in.
The icon themes also impact on newbies when (say) they open leafpad and click on open....with a changes= cheatcode and want to add a folder to their favourite folders etc

Having been a bad boy and reported falsely an issue with 05-dev xzm I just double-checked my unpacked iso on whats truly in the base dir.
And the other issue with FF is its version has just bumped.

I would be tempted to ask members to use pacman?

Code: Select all

pacman -S firefox
shows its at correct version 43.0.1

I can understand brokenman's thoughts on adding adwaita-icon-theme...it is huge. I just grab it and whatever other stuff I want and build modules...keeps the base as small as possible, yet still lots of goodies.

Yes, I would rather work through the iconset (Faenza) and link the missing icons. There aren't really that many. I see your point about adding firefox in the ISO. I am in kde right now and firefox is running find without gtk3 or adwaita-icon-theme. Running the command to update it wants to pull in about 90Mb of extra deps that it really doesn't need.

I'll have to think about it another way. I may have to use an "update-firefox" script to pull it from the porteus server.
I just tested: pman -S firefox
It updates and builds a module (with the duckduckgo search engine files) but it places itself, and it's rather large friends, directly into the modules folder while leaving the existing 05-firefox.xz module there too.

Post#26 by aus9 » 19 Dec 2015, 03:02

I think that is because its in the base and not in the modules. I will duplicate test when i get home.

EDIT I deleted the 05-firefox from base now to do your pman -S firefox command as root

Code: Select all

pman -S firefox

re-test my locale stuff

just to refresh I have commented out your preserve locale stuff in /config/modules
and I am using my the xzm files created on this build but built after above line changed

locale is showing en_US and not en_AU. When I have time I will delete all my locale xzms and start again.

EDIT: Try this Ed_P

Code: Select all

cat > /etc/acpi/events/lid << "EOF"
event=button/lid
action=/etc/acpi/lid.sh
EOF

MYLID=`ls /proc/acpi/button/lid/`
cat > /etc/acpi/lid.sh << "EOF"
#!/bin/sh
grep -q open $MYLID/state && exit 0
/usr/bin/pm-suspend
EOF
chmod +x /etc/acpi/lid.sh
/etc/init.d/acpid restart
Good news, :) bad news. :(

Before running your code, with the lid closed the screen is indeed dark, as I peek in from the sides. But the 3 lights stay on; light, battery, network. Opening the lid the screen brightens almost instantly.

After running your commands, with the lid closed the screen is dark, the light light blinks on & off, the battery light is on and the network light is off. Opening the lid the screen brightens, but then goes dark. I have to press the power button to get the screen to come back on.
