Cinnamon 32 bit

VLC Issue
Using the vlc bundle here https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=5827, vlc gives no trouble to speak of in Maate, XFCE and in KDE rc2 (32/64 bit). (Not able to get into rc3 KDE as need nvidia driver for this.)

In Cinnamon rc1, rc2 and rc3 quitting vlc after playing videos results in vlc terminating, but the window remains with the picture part greyed out. Cinnamon freezes, and only mouse pointer movement is possible. The consoles can however be reached. Normally had no thought of closing vlc, but running in terminal to verify an error documented by someone else, led to trying to free terminal by terminating vlc.

BTW is there simple command to restart Cinnamon from a console? (Been searching high and low for it.)

1. Booted porteus 3.2 rc3 x86_64 Cinnamon ISO 
   AF mode, no extramods, no changes
   Porteus save file manager
   Created new 256MB save file.
2. ReBooted porteus  3.2 rc3 x86_64 Cinnamon ISO

   changes=EXIT
   Menu > Preferences > Date & Time > 24 hr clock > off
3. ReBooted porteus  3.2 rc3 x86_64 Cinnamon ISO
   AF mode, no extramods
   changes=EXIT
   Logon screen for guest 
   entered password for guest
   Logon screen for guest reappeared
   Changed logon to root
   System came up but clock is displaying 24 hr format.
Hope this helps your testing.

It depends which desktop but look in the terminal menus for changing the encoding. In xfce4 it is 'Terminal/Set Encoding'
It good for GUI variant, but not for 'Text mode' :)

PaulBy fixed it via console-cyrillic package and /etc/rc.d/rc.local

1. I tried to compile SimpleScreenRecorder from SlackBuilds Repository and received this error

I of course activated 05-devel.xzm and crippled_sources.xzm :)

BTW simplescreenrecorder does not work for correctly.
Somebody can test my module simplescreenrecorder-0.3.6-1-x64-3.2-needQT4.xzm + dependence qt-4.8.7-x86_64-1_slack14.1.xzm?

^^^^

Code: Select all

cinnamon --replace
Those people wanting the ability to mount fixed drives as guest please create the file:
/etc/polkit-1/rules.d/25-guest-mount.rules
with the following content:

Code: Select all

polkit.addAdminRule(function(action, subject) {
    return ["unix-group:wheel"];
});
polkit.addRule(function(action, subject) {
               if (action.id.indexOf("org.freedesktop.udisks") == 0) {
                       return polkit.Result.YES;
                   }
           });
Now add guest to the wheel group.
usermod -G wheel guest

Here is an example if you don't want children to mount drives, and guest needs to enter root password. You will need to install an authentication agent. In cinnamon this would be polkit-gnome.
/etc/polkit-1/rules.d/25-guest-mount.rules

Code: Select all

polkit.addRule(function(action, subject) {
    if (action.id.indexOf("org.freedesktop.udisks") == 0) {
        if (subject.isInGroup("children")) {
            return polkit.Result.NO;
        } else {
            return polkit.Result.AUTH_ADMIN;
        }
    }
});

Mate rc3 x86_64

I try to open a ISO file with Engrampa 1.14.0 and I got a error and the error was "An error occurred while loading the archive." Can some verify that?
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.

@Jack: The engrampa/iso problem is a know one. Big ISOs produced by mkisofs have problems, the same big ISOs produced by genisoimage or xorriso are ok.
See e.g. the discussions about Alien Bob's Slackware Live ISOs on http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/archive/ as well as https://github.com/mate-desktop/engrampa/issues/128.

"KDE Plasma 5.7 lands July 5, to have five point releases"
While it might be possible for you get an early taste of the awesome new features listed above by installing the KDE Plasma 5.7 Beta release from the repositories of various GNU/Linux operating systems, we recommend waiting for the final, production-ready version, which is coming in only two weeks, on July 5, 2016.

However, the KDE devs urge the community to take part in the upcoming KDE Plasma 5.7 Beta testing day, which has been scheduled for June 20. KDE Plasma 5.7 will have, as usual, five maintenance updates, Plasma 5.6.1 on July 12, Plasma 5.6.2 on July 19, Plasma 5.6.3 on August 3, Plasma 5.6.4 on August 23, and Plasma 5.6.5 on September 27, 2016.
