Save file dose not work

:hmmm: I will assume after each change you exited Porteus and restarted it. So, let's look at your drive's folder structure.

Save file dose not work

Hello DonaldJ, welcome to Porteus. You need the changes= cheatcode to look more like mine. changes=EXIT:UUID:8486-DDC5/changes/porteussave.dat In your case I think that would be more like one of these. changes=UUID:1117-3F3A/multiboot/Porteus-XFCE-v4.0-x86_64/porteussave.dat or changes=UUID:1117-3F3...

Bootable USB for Celeron N4100 CPU mini PC

ISO is not expanded. ISO is copied into USB. (using the cheatcode "from=..iso") :o An impressive approach. :happy62: The .efi files from Ubuntu support booting without disabling the EFI Secure Boot function.

USM - Updates fail

Hi Iksnip.

sesm.sh needs to be made executable. Open terminal in the folder where you saved sesm.sh and enter:

Code: Select all

chmod  +x  sesm.sh
then run sesm.sh. :)

Any way to ditch Firefox?

Sure, just use the Browser Selection and Update Tool. Then remake your CD or boot the ISO with grub2 and boot parms.
