Printing and scanning for Porteus

Ok, understand the Manage Print browser connection. Trying to figure out why a webpage won't print and see that the CUPS "window" is another browser tab. :happy62: The Printing Troubleshooter says I have to "Enable the 'Publish shared printers connected to this system' option in the server settings ...

Printing and scanning for Porteus

Menu > All Apps > Manage Printing > Browser Selection... I reproduced this. If you don't have activated browser - it runs Browser Selection. It's normal. Hardly "normal", more like "insane". Printing and Browsering are totally unrelated. After Print Settings is done Manage Print brings up Administr...

Some Questions:Could not find libs.txt,uninstall polyglot

Any comment on Problem 4? Disregard it. The error is extraneous. So yesterday I installed Porteus 5.0 LXDE on a usb memory chip. Actually you installed 5.0 rc1 which is a work in progress. As for the USM problems, check out this posting: bundle - onlyoffice for Porteus 5.0rc1 which refers to code i...

modules folder

spif66 lets refine your parms a bit. zram=40% noauto changes=/ copy2ram extramod=/modules timezone=Europe/Rome utc kmap=it See how they work. The advantage being if the install should move the parms won't change. :) To point to the directory directly from Porteus either use your file manage or term...

Cannot properly shutdown Porteus

I'm sure you've Googled this and found that "This signal requests an orderly shutdown of process or system itself.". Somehow your system isn't shutting down. A BIOS setting or something plugged in could be the cause. You could try testing a different version of Porteus to see if that helps narrow th...

Cannot properly shutdown Porteus

Do you have a changes= cheatcode in your config? If you do you could try the changes=EXIT option thus reducing the write IO on your USB drive, which may be contributing to your problem.
