Why does vs 3.2.2 with MATE have an old version of Transmission installed?

...why does 3.2.2 have Transmission 1.8.4 installed?... A quick check of the mate module from the (3.2.2) standard isos shows: guest@porteus:~/Test$ lsxzm 003-mate.xzm | grep -i /var/log/packages/trans /var/log/packages/transmission-2.84-i586-1jay /var/log/packages/transmission- 2 .84-i586-1jay 64 ...

Or a Porteus option to not save the cache in porteussave.dat file.
Have you already looked into the /etc/changes-exit.conf?

BUG: [Solved] Fix Quotes on US Keyboard

There's nothing wrong with the keyboard at all. You've selected a keyboard layout that has dead key support on those keys. One such layout is US International, for example. Dead key: A key that does not produce a character by itself, such as the accent key on the international keyboard. However, whe...

Now, provide the tune that you would play or are playing

@raja The music you linked doesn't sound bad but i have no idea how they should sound. ( what the musicians/producers accepted as the final sound/mix) If you have a couple of CDs, there are surely some sounding really bad; you know this by simply listen. less dynamic range, distortion and clipping, ...

GPARTED use

@ Don604 Once you are happy with the partition layout it is not necessary to (re) install porteus again and again. a) you can boot in "always fresh" mode, which does only load the base modules, none of your settings or modules in the modules folder are loaded. You can now move modules or clean your ...

Problem with VLC LAN under 4.0 64bit Porteus.

Size only 14 MB ! It should be possible also for Xfce to create such a module ?? I don't think so. QT is the underlying framework in KDE, but GTK in XFCE. Assembling a VLC module for XFCE needs all the QT stuff and more.. At the end the module will run, but the size is...ridiculous... and I have no...
