Touchscreen support Porteus 4.0 Cinnamon

I found in another folder (current) a kernel and tried it (v5.15). The touchscreen and your recommended version of Cinnamon work like a charm. Thank you again. You're welcome but I don't recommend that approach. An ISO created by neko in the Cinnamon 3.8.6 thread, with an updated kernel, would be a...

Touchscreen support Porteus 4.0 Cinnamon

I have a Dell Inspiron notebook with a keyboard and touchpad and touchscreen and Porteus 4.0 and my touchscreen works. Now the question is why. It could be because I have an updated kernel, 14.16.3, or an updated DE, 3.8.6, or a bunch of other modules. Which one is giving me the touchscreen support ...

Does from=/Porteus-Kiosk.iso work now?

I test all ISOs as ISOs using a boot parm. Possible ISO boot parms: boot=/, from=all, from=$iso, fromiso=$iso, findiso=$iso, iso-scan/filename=$iso, bootfrom=/dev/sda6$iso . $iso is what I set to the location of the ISO, set iso="/Users/Ed/Downloads/clear-32510-live-desktop.iso" for example. If Kios...

Flatpak installation problems

USM does not work in the 5.0rc1 test system. In version 4 it is necessary to run the USM Update All the 1st time you use USM. USM uses a number of distributions which use a number of mirrors. Some mirrors have problems periodically and need to be updated which with the pandemic can take a while. Th...

Flatpak installation problems

It should be noted Lachu that nachosan ran his detailed steps on the 5.0rc1 test system. Are you using the test system or the 4.0 system?

Flatpak installation problems

Interesting. I got the same results using the USM GUI. Apparently the SlackOnly mirror has problems.

You're right Roggs90, browsing Porteus's menu looking for Browser downloads and Updates is too hard for you. It's kinda like trying to help someone who doesn't tell you what version of Porteus they are trying to use, what type of system they are working on, whether they've used a linux system before...
