[SOLVED] Shell script stops and ask root password but it does not work !

just FYI, from 5.0rc2 onwards the sudo password has been configured to ask for the target users password. ie the root password for root..
in any case, as beny says, su works just as well in a script: su -c <command>
and it's best to change the root password to something more secure ;)

How to Manually Add a Program to the Menu

by placing a .desktop file in either /usr/share/applications or /home/guest/.local/share/applications maybe the tor bundle includes one? if not, have a look at the .desktop files in /usr/share/applications to get an idea of the format ... typically, something like this would do: (<parts> to be fille...

How did you fix this particular issue, which file to edit? same as what you did: "removed these lines from (home/guest/) .bashrc." # Append any additional sh scripts found in /etc/profile.d/: for y in /etc/profile.d/*.sh ; do [ -x $y ] && . $y; done unset y I'd like to finally upgrade from porteus ...

ncmprhnsbl if these modules are loaded into openbox 4.0 will it work?
might do, but with the qt5 module for 4.0, because i think there'd be an icu mismatch with the newer qt5..
one sure way to find out ;)

PaleMoon browser only for 64 bit…

palemoon is now available as a gtk3 build, and i've set the update script to use that .. (so will work with stock 5.0rc2 with adding gtk2) a gtk2 build is still available, so if anyone specifically wants/needs that, i could conceivably add an option for that in the script( otherwise you get can the ...

Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

The most recent lib I found and installed is webp-pixbuf-loader-0.0.1.5,1.txz um, did you get that package from freebsd? :o just guessing, it may be that webp-pixbuf-loader needs to be compiled against the libwebp (or even gdk) present in 4.0 (hint https://slackbuilds.org/) if it's functional, ther...
