LXQt 0.11 for Porteus 3.2 x64

Here is a place for your projects which are not officially supported by the Porteus Team. For example: your own kernel patched with extra features; desktops not included in the standard ISO like Gnome; base modules that are different than the standard ISO, etc...

I put SMPlayer together with Mpv (instead of MPlayer) and Qmmp (audio player). It's a different build of SMPlayer, compiled by Arch repository. Please, check for any bugs. :good:
(upload finishes in 10min)

P.S.: it's getting hard to squeeze the module to keep it around 50mb :P

EDITED: does anybody know why putting pcmanfm-qt settings inside /root/.config/pcmanfm-qt doesn't work? Differently of running as guest, every time I open pcmanfm-qt as root it loads in icon mode view instead of detailed list view :(

qmmp having trouble with wma,m4a, >trouble with ffmpeg plugin:

Code: Select all

QmmpAudioEngine: selected decoder: ffmpeg
DecoderFFmpeg: detected format: QuickTime / MOV
=mov,mp4,m4a,3gp,3g2,mj2=
qmmp: relocation error: /usr/lib64/qmmp/Input/libffmpeg.so: symbol avcodec_parameters_to_context, version LIBAVCODEC_57 not defined in file libavcodec.so.57 with link time reference
no trouble with smplayer,mpv or mplayer directly(which seems odd since qmmp uses mplayer)

interesting:
/usr/bin/mpv = 25.2mb
on void : mpv = 1.8mb
from slackonly.lst: -rwxr-xr-x root/root 1431264 2016-07-24 19:50 usr/bin/mpv (1.4mb)
the whole arch package installed=4.2mb
whats with that?

are you setting via pcmanfm-qt(root) itself? seemed to work ok for me...

ncmprhnsbl, when did you download the module? I uploaded the last version a few hours ago. Maybe you have an older version since the problem with m4a files is already solved. ;)

Mpv is huge because it's static linked with FFMpeg so we don't have to count on external FFMpeg versions. It would be great if we could do this with Qmmp FFMpeg plugin too. But if you really want a non-static Mpv, here's a link to a already tested xzm module: http://www.mediafire.com/file/x16ymipc4 ... -1_SBo.xzm

Regarding pcmanfm-qt as root, can you persist its configurations using rootcopy folder?

Thanks once more! :good:

hmmm.. just redownloaded 5mins ago (51mb) and can't see any change > wma and m4a s crash qmmp, permissions etc...
maybe mediafire is messing us about :unknown:

suspected that might be the case, just adds a bit of bulk is all... its a fine line between base functionality and user preferences,

Which version of Porteus/FFMpeg are you using? I suspect that the problem is that Qmmp FFMpeg plugin was compiled with a different version of FFMpeg package. At least this was the problem with me, then I recompiled using Porteus 3.2 + kernel 4.8.8. Can you see now why static link is a better option? It doesn't depend on user's choice that aren't clear enough. :)

EDITED: oh, I see the problem: I separated the new Qmmp plugin and forgot to put it inside LXQt module. I'm sorry :fool: (uploading a new version right now, and this time with a non-static Mpv specially for you :P )

Yeah, I know, and I can't see why, once VLC stutters/tearing a lot and has a questionable interface. But anyway, I'm follow your suggestion to put SMPlayer, which was the same choice brokenman made in his old Porteus LXQt version. :good:

Blaze, thanks for the update news.

Have you uploaded a new version of LXQt 0.11 for Porteus 3.2 x64 yet? I'm getting ready to try it.
EDIT:
Well I look at your Desktop. It seem to run OK but I like color in my Desktop, that might be why I like Mate so well. I will check it out at later time maybe I will change my ways. I'm SORRY.
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.

have been using 3.2.1 (kernel 4.8.11).. which is working fine with your latest lxqt version... (qmmp,smplayer,mpv all good :good: )

Qt5 theme management leaves much to be desired(outside of KDE) at this point..

i think a case could be made to have a separate module for multimedia stuff, thats currently in 002-xorg and 003-desktop..
ie. 002-xorg, 003-media, 004-desktop .. to make swapping out things like mplayer/mpv easier..

Great! :)

And what about that problem with pcmanfm-qt crashing, is this good now?

Regarding files permissions, I ran your little script. What's wrong? :(

Code: Select all

sudo chown -R root:root 003-lxqt
sudo chown -R guest:users 003-lxqt/home/guest
sudo chmod -R 755 003-lxqt
sudo chmod -R 700 003-lxqt/root

This is a great idea, although it turns things a little bit more complex. :good:

maybe thats because its not a script as such, but a list of commands to be run(one at a time) by rootuser in the directory where 003-lxqt is.. :)

forgot to check(since rebooted to another setup..will check later)

there is a way to make qt5 use gtk themes out there(this function has been removed from qt 5.7) but isnt readily available in slackware(afaik)
so yes, with some compiling , it could be done....
or alternatively, finding some nice qt5 themes(with matching gtk) and adding them might be possible(my clumsy attempts at this have so far failed)

checked with 3.2.1(4.8.11) and 3.2(4.8.8) with no browser module activated: still crashing pcmanfm-qt ... odd..

regarding themes: i extracted breeze style from kde5, made a module and activated,
it shows up in the appearance/widget style dialog but doesnt work: it just changes to the 'windows' style..

no fresher than this:

Code: Select all

# Booting device:
/mnt/sdb1

# Porteus data found in:
/mnt/sdb1/porteus

# Changes are stored in:
memory

# Non standard /rootcopy dir:
none

# Modules activated during boot time:
/mnt/sdb1/porteus/base/000-kernel.xzm
/mnt/sdb1/porteus/base/001-core.xzm
/mnt/sdb1/porteus/base/002-xorg.xzm
/mnt/sdb1/porteus/optional/003-lxqt.xzm
still get the same crash..
tho if i drag the internet category to the desktop(choose copy: it becomes a folder)
then it opens pcman no problem, showing gFTP,Lynx and polylot..
clicking these then opens them ok..
then if i drag the internet category to the desktop(and choose symlink)
it wont open and makes the desktop flash
or crash any open instance of pcman,

all other categories work fine..
