Splash Screen Stays Up

Thank you very much.
Is there a step by step guide for these? As in a tutorial for a complete newbie?

Splash Screen Stays Up

That would be ideal, yes, basically a full distro optimized for 'always fresh'. - I already have, and like, Porteus Kiosk, which, after install, has a web browser and my wifi access point and password. This is ideal for my use case of home banking, Amazon, shopping, etc. - The old Porteus used to al...

Splash Screen Stays Up

Thank you. Now more progress. I can save 'state'. What I did was take my working FAT32 thumb drive, and use the installer to write to a different thumb drive (ext4). Now, if I take the graphical option, my Plasma System Settings, Wireless network and Dolphin settings are 'remembered' across re-boots...

Splash Screen Stays Up

No splash screen. The only difference I noticed on the EFI section was to format FAT32 (I was already copying all folders anyway), so: [mparillo@MarcoManjaroHP0 ~]$ su Password: [root@MarcoManjaroHP0 mparillo]# dd if=/dev/sdb bs=512 count=1 | hexdump -C 00000000 33 c0 fa 8e d8 8e d0 bc 00 7c 89 e6 0...

That's weird.. any error messages? I did not see any error messages, but I will re-do everything and paste below. maybe i should have written: mount -o loop /Path/to/Porteus.iso /mnt/iso Unless you edited your post, I see it in your excellent step-by-step instructions you are trying to boot BIOS ma...

Splash Screen Stays Up

Thank you all, and I apologize, but my profile distribution is out of date, and I no longer have that thumb drive. So, Donald's directions looked good to me, but when I followed them, my thumb drive is not bootable at all. That is, I do not even get the porteus splash screen.

Splash Screen Stays Up

What is the bootable app? If I am stuck on the splashscreen, I do not know how I can boot Porteus I believe the "bootable app" is either Porteus-installer-for-Linux.com or Porteus-installer-for Windows.exe. They are in the ISO's /boot/ directory. Which one did you run? And the "splashscreen" you ar...

Splash Screen Stays Up

It seems that the files couldn't be copied properly to the USB stick. You can try to format the unit and copy the ISO content again (running the bootable app). If formating is not an option, you can try to run a disk check. Thank you. What is the bootable app? If I am stuck on the splashscreen, I d...

I just downloaded the LXQt V4 installation, and ran the install script to my USB drive, and it all seemed to have worked. When I boot the USB, I get the splash screen with options such as: Graphical, Always Fresh, Command Line, etc. I can down-arrow through the choices, but when I hit enter on any o...

Re: The future of Porteus

I stumbled on this thread also. What I really liked was the using a simple web page, my ISO had just what I wanted it (Plasma 4, Chrome). Will that function to build your own ISO still be offered in the Future?

Re: Can I use rootcopy to store my WEP config in Always Fres

Thank you, and I copied all the changed files to rootcopy, but now my WEP password does not 'take'.
