Active Shell

Hi diannella.

Your posts relate to the kiosk version of Porteus which is supported in this area of the forum: Porteus Kiosk Edition. As such I have been moving your threads to it. :)

Opera 64 (lite version)

Apparently Opera, and Chrome, dropped support for .swf files on the hard drive a yr or 2 ago. To play them they need to be referenced in a webpage. There is an Adobe app that will play them but it only runs in Windows, or wine. :( And the problem gets worst, in 2020 Adobe is dropping Flash altogethe...

Opera 64 (lite version)

now the question is: why?? why does cinnamon suddenly recognise the exact same opera.desktop? Cause now it's in /usr/share/applications/? i think, opera is based on chromium webengine nowdays, so pepperflash might work.. The pepperflash plugin does the trick. :good: But it doesn't show in Opera Ext...

How to transfer files between pcs on same network

Minor question, the Windows 7 system doesn't require a signon, mount.cifs asks for a password regardless. I tried pass= and pass="" but neither worked. Suggestion. mount -t cifs //my.host/mydir -o user=,password= /mnt/samba https://www.thinkplexx.com/learn/howto/linux/system/mount-nfs-shares-with-s...
