snap (snapd)

Could someone please help me make my Porteus snap-ready if possible? It's installable on linux https://docs.snapcraft.io/core/install , I hope it can be installed on porteus too. The software I've been trying to install, krop , which I need to crop my pdf pages, is offered as a snap . Otherwise I've...

WinDjView

Thank you, @fulalas , I'm now using the newer Wine from the link. It didn't resolve the issue with WinDjView -- possibly because it's not a proper 64-bit application after all. See the attached wine-windows-generated backtrace below. So, I still need the 0050-compat32-multilib-ftw.xzm and 32-bit Win...

WinDjView

WinDjView is the best at rendering djvu scanned books I've seen. One should be able to just install the windows version onto the Wine 3.5 . That works for SumatraPDF and other (64-bit) windows apps. WinDjView installer apparently does install a win64 binary. Unfortunately it crashes at startup, as i...

perl-tk compatible with perl of Porteus 4.0

@jssouza, thank you, I've just followed your procedure and it worked! I guess this is how we build from source - good to know for future. I'll use the module by itself tomorrow and if it still works, this is solved!

perl-tk compatible with perl [Solved]

I'm having a problem finding a compatible perl-tk for Porteus 4.0. I use TexLive GUI manager which required a "Perl/Tk module". In the past, getting the perl-tk from USM and activating the perl-tk-804.033-x86_64-2_slonly.xzm worked. Not anymore: # tlmgr -gui Event.c: loadable library and perl binari...

@jssouza, it's amazing how fast you can fix these things. Thank you, it works now with spellchecking! I had to activate additionally

LyX 2.3.0 [Solved]

I think it's worth making a separate thread for this. I'm looking for a LyX 2.3.0 built against Qt 5.9.5 of @jssouza (or for Qt 5.10 but then the Qt 5.10 itself is needed) with spell checking support. We have Lyx 2.3.0 thanks to @jssouza, which works on Qt 5.9.5, but, curiously, spell-checker seems ...

Qt 5.9.5 for Porteus 4.0

@fulalas , if there were indeed a user-friendly tool to prebuild a subset of Qt, I'd try to use it. For now, it's great to have your help. By the way, why not Qt 5.10? I'd like to try and convert one of https://opensuse.pkgs.org/tumbleweed/opensuse-oss/lyx-2.3.0-2.1.x86_64.rpm.html or https://archl...

@jssouza, Another way woud be to build lyx 2.3 with Qt 5.9.1. So, I compiled lyx 2.3 with qt 5.9.1 and it seems working. Please check. Actually, one important thing does not work: the spellchecker. Spellchecker preferences are disabled, grayed out. I have teh aspell, hunspell, enchant all installed ...

Qt 5.9.5 for Porteus 4.0

Thank you so much for these. It solved the problem that I had run into having upgraded to Porteus 4.0: my Qt apps (lyx, texstudio, qpdfview) that used to work on Porteus 3.2.2 using qt5-5.9.1-x86_64-1jss.xzm complained about missing libraries. It was apparently the Qt itself that was built against o...

Porteus-v4.0 LXDE experience

Found the problem: it was wrong to treat the .iso file as an archive and use "Extract To" to copy files. I mounted the.iso file properly and then copied files from it, and now it works. As for LXDE vs. KDE: during my trials, I booted the KDE version on my old laptop and it crawled, was barely usable...

Porteus-v4.0 LXDE experience

@fulalas, yes adding "login=root" to the "Always Fresh" allows me to boot into root and not see the error. Overall LXDE in this case looks less broken throughout e.g., disk labels in File Manager Places panel are displayed, and more restarting options suddenly appear. Regarding interference, I insta...

Porteus-v4.0 LXDE experience

@fulalas, sorry I'd have to learn first what VBox is and how to do it. Maybe it's easy I've just never done it. I have tried to boot on a different computer (a slightly older, but still rather new, model of Dell Optiplex). The same messages appeared. I have then installed the LXQt variant of porteus...

Firstly, let me add a little detail that on the console screen, Ctrl+Alt+F1, after INIT: Entering runlevel 4 the next line reads Unable to cd to /home/guest, although the directory is there, I've checked. Trying 'Always Fresh' works (better?) in the fol...

1. I've tried new Porteus-LXDE-v4.0-x86_64.iso on two USB sticks, adding only login=root, and the first thing displayed after the desktop loads is an Error message box: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit was not provided by any .service files I...
