Re: cannot lock screen

Lock screen Seems it is not included in porteus_4 -- it is in 3.2.2 However you need the xlockmore-5.46-x86_64-1.txz package. But that's not enough, you also need libMagickCore-6.Q16.so.2 which is in imagemagick-6.9.4_9-x86_64-1.txz and libwmflite-0.2.so.7 in package libwmf-0.2.8.4-x86_64-6.txz Extr...

Re: Using ffmpeg to record what comes from the web browser

The last step ...... costs time. Kulle , the settings in the pulseaudio mixer (record tab) only have to be made once. It stays that way, you do not have to do it again and again.. The record tab is empty until you actually record something. The "Monitor of..." setting is retained. EDIT You could ad...

Re: Using ffmpeg to record what comes from the web browser

Hi Donald, Many Thanks, it worked now. Great I have noticed now: ffmpeg is a very powerful tool, it can be used for many purposes One can find a lot of useful command examples to convert/extract audio/video using FFmpeg. FFmpeg also has a neat video player onboard, named FFplay -- already tried? Ex...

Re: Using ffmpeg to record what comes from the web browser

Hi Donald, both commands ffmpeg -f alsa -ac 2 -i pulse output.wav ffmpeg -f alsa -ac 2 -i pulse -acodec libmp3lame -ab 320k output.mp3 did not work for me. The files output.wav and output.mp3 are generated. But when you play the files: no sound! What can this be? Hi Kulle Yep, this was done in 3.2....

Re: Porteus 4.0 does not work

@ Kulle
KERNEL/PROCESSOR:
4.15.2-porteus x86_64

4.0 final has kernel 4.16.3 -- looks like you use an old (rc ?) version.
Download a new one and try again, the issue might have been fixed already.

Pulseaudio plugin fine adjustments

Hello everybody If you use your PC like me, mostly at night or in a quiet environment, and do not want to disturb your neighbors, you're probably using headphones. My PC has two audio outputs, one on the back and one on the front of the case. Pulseaudio called them "LIne out" and "Headphones". Unfor...

Re: E-Machine EL1352-01e Resolution Issue

Hmmm...The more i read the more i tend to think it is KDE's fault. ( Search for "Kwin crash" to get an idea ) btw, the OpenGL compositor runs fine in port 3.2.2 -- not always -- Kwin still crashes from time to time while booting; but if not, it runs stable without freezing/crashing. https://i.postim...

Re: E-Machine EL1352-01e Resolution Issue

(or more exactly when I set it to OpenGL) Confirmed The same happened here with a nvidia 7050 PV/nForce 630a integated chipset and KDE desktop. Unfortunately, I found nothing better than a series of similar crash reports involving GeForce 6150SE, NVIDIA legacy drivers, OpenGL, and the plasma shell....

Try this one:
nvidia-304.137-x86_64 (Post by donald #64332)

use uname -rm to confirm the kernel version.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ uname -rm
