Possibly not related to the rc2 release, or maybe Im not sure. I was playing around in the settings and activated the high contrast part inside of accessibility and now many icons are washed out or just not visible, but if you hover over them they are still there. I hoped a simple restart would fix this, but unfortunately not. Any idea how I can get it back to normal as just deactivating contrast didnt do it.lol Heres a screenshot to show what I mean.

Had to post link as screenie was to large for the forum


edit: Nevermind, I seemed to have fixed this myself. I had a thought that going into the theme settings area and reapplying the icon theme would fix it, and it appears to have done so. I should have checked that before posting. Apologies.

@jamie81
Yes I did compile ffmpegthumbnailer from source although if you can get it from USM it may also work. Also I have replaced gpicview with gthumb just in cinnamon for the next release.
I noticed a strange behavior of MPlayer, if it is invoked from within a terminal.
Strange. I use it everyday from a terminal (watch videos while I'm working) and haven't come across this.

Strange. I use it everyday from a terminal (watch videos while I'm working) and haven't come across this.
I was able to get the video thumbnails working a few hours ago. I cleared out the modules folder except for smplayer modules. I downloaded ffmpegthumbnailer from terminal USM and I had already had a config file in the thumbnails folder(when I was previously trying to get them to work), but I went ahead and deleted it and added the one you posted as it seemed to be more comprehensive as per file types. I got nothing at first, and then I realized might be folder permissions as I was testing with videos on another partition, a windows one to be exact. As soon as I copied a video into the home directory instant thumbnail on it.lol Strange enough though, I accessed some videos in another folder on the same windows partition and these thumbnailed immediately. I guess it was a permission issue, as the latest version of ffmpegthumbnailer I picked up from terminal USM worked fine(even though I previously had a module of it before, but decided to start fresh).

I have a couple questions, and maybe an issue or two Ive noticed.

1. It seems the "open in terminal" option in the right click menu of Nemo doesnt want to open in terminal. Not sure if its a bug thats been mentioned or what, just thought Id bring it up. Also the "open as root" option wasnt working earlier today, but magically started working as of now.

2. Its not a huge issue, but when you hover over icons in the bottom right tray, the tooltip looks to be off. You just see the words and no background color to it, like its a theming issue or something. Like I say, not a real issue but looks aesthetically off like that. Its probably a simple fix, but not one I know off hand so thought I'd mention.

3. Id really like to get "guake" installed. I like having a terminal in a quick dropdown like guake does. It's not listed in the USM, though I googled for a txz of it and seems there is one here.
https://pkgs.org/slackware-13.37/slacky ... l.txz.html

Not sure why it didnt show in USM, possibly because its slackware 13.37? Anyhow, the dependencies are fairly numerous on the link I posted above. Am I really going to need to go after all those dependencies? lol I tried the install and it seems I definitely am going to need some. I was just thinking it would be nice if a version was in USM so I dont have to manually run them down and USM can just resolve the dependencies for me.

4. In your opinion, what is the best way for me to save files such as images or videos without actually causing my porteussave.dat file from growing into a monstrosity? If possible Id like to keep the porteussave.dat file just for configuration changes and newly installed things. If I download a video from say youtube, where would be the best place to store the file on the usb drive so it doesnt add size to my porteussave.dat file? Hope I explained that good enough. Sorry for my ignorance also.lol


Thanks and sorry for the long winded response. Im loving this Cinnamon, great job!

From a 'guest' terminal please run: gsettings set org.cinnamon.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec lxterminal
Thanks for the catch.

Looking at it now.

USM simply combines 5-6 slackware repositories and offers what is in them. I can't add packages to it. Perhaps request a module in the module request section. Specify that it is for cinnamon rc2

4. In your opinion, what is the best way for me to save files such as images or videos without actually causing my porteussave.dat file from growing into a monstrosity?
Firstly, I never use a save.dat file. I don't like storage containers. I boot into ram and I have a storage folder (or partition) on my drive where I store anything I download. If you are working from a USB then after you download a video (say to /home/guest) then simply move it to /mnt/sdb1/myStorageFolder. This way it does not impact your savefile.

Anyone tackling guake on cinnamon.

1) Reinstall GConf from slackware source
2) Compile the following from slackbuilds.org
- gnome-python2-gconf
- python-keybinder
- pyxdg
3) Compile guake from source.

Best bet would be to pull the latest github code and export the archive:
git master archive --prefix=guake-0.4.2/ | gzip > /tmp/guake-0.4.2.tar.gz

Then put the resulting archive into the slackbuilds directory you got from slackbuilds. You will probably need to edit the SlackBuild file and add ./autogen.sh right before the ./configure line. Also remove any document generation from the SlackBuild. Good luck.

1. Thanks for the help. The terminal is now opening with the command you posted.

2. In case my explanation was a tad confusing or anything. Ive got a screenshot for you, perhaps will explain the tooltip issue better. As a side note, hovering over a tab inside of Opera browser shows the tooltips how I believe they should be. White letters on a black background. Here is the screenshot of the tray.

3. Thanks for the insight on guake. I tried using the "simple package manager for debian" posted here on the forums.
https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php ... 6&start=45

I was able to get all the dependencies and guake using that tool. It was quite a few modules so I tried using the "mergexzm" tool here on the forums also, and it merged them into one module for me. On restart of the computer however, Porteus would not load to desktop and seemed to stall right after the message that tells you its loading the desktop. After removing that module and trying again porteus fired right up. So obviously its that merged module. Im going to try a few other programs with that package manager for debian and see if any of them work. Possibly something with guake package/dependencies borking porteus.


4. Thanks for the thoughts on the saving stuff. Ive figured out a way to do basically what I need.

For what it's worth I got guake working here on 32bit cinnamon. Many python modules required but it eventually compiled. I will add a feature to porteus called bundles where people can download one module with all dependencies included. It will work on 'per desktop basis' so if you are on cinnamon and you type: bundles into a terminal it will show you all available bundles.

I do not know if this bug is related with this version, but it seems serious so I will report it here too:

WARNING!!

A serious bug:
for USB fat32 installation with a savefile.

I think it concerns all porteus versions, and it has to do with "trash" feature of pcmanfm. I had to disable it. Although it says that it will not use trash on removable media, actually it does. And the fat32 file system gets corrupted. If you delete a file, it seems deleted, but it is there physically and occupies space that it is not reported by the system.
Systems sees more free space that you actually have, check disk in win7 created recovered files for all the deleted files, and corrected the real free space!

There were system unrecoverable errors when tried to update without knowing the real free space of the media, the update stopped unexpectedly with "could not write" or "could not continue" or something, I do not really remember. The package that has been destroyed was gtk2, there was unexpected behavior after reboot. I had to recover save-file from backup.

copied from nemesis bug report as it is: https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php ... 543#p45543

I like that idea of bundles! Yeah I noticed there were some python dependencies required, quite a few. Im on 64bit cinnamon myself. Gthumb has kind of grown on me, definitely a better option Imo than gpicview I think.

"source [file join [file dirname [info script]] hv3_main.tcl] "
    (file "/usr/local/bin/hv3-linux-nightly-08_0203/main.tcl" line 6)
The dynamically linked executable also:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ hv3
application-specific initialization failed: unknown color name "BACKGROUND"
Error in startup script: unknown color name "BACKGROUND"
    (database entry for "-background" in widget ".")
    invoked from within

    ("package ifneeded Tk 8.6.1" script)
    invoked from within
"package require Tk"
    (file "/usr/share/hv3/hv3_main.tcl" line 17)
Just trying only the statically linked executable under Mate gave the same error.

This looks like it could be an old friend: viewtopic.php?f=53&t=4028&hilit=backgro ... 030#p28984

No problem running under Cinnamon 32 bit and XFCE 32 bit.
