Re: USM question

Yes, I ended up with some pretty large files, which included some dependencies that I have no idea about. Is there some other method of installing programs on Porteus that I'm missing? ----I tried deb2xzm, but that has depency challenges as well. ----On porteus.org/faq.html , mention is made of "por...

Re: USM question

Great, thanks for that! - Found several good modules there. *How did you find that link? *Is there a directory of trustworthy "Porteus Package Repos" somewhere? In particular, a few more packages I'm looking for are: Inkscape, Filezilla and Calibre. Those had so many dependencies on the System->USM ...

Re: USM question

So I went to download VLC, and it appeared to require that I download more than 50 different packages... Does that mean I'd have to "load="+50filenames.xzm in order to run VLC? That would probably infringe on my Porteus-ness. I think I'd prefer to get familiar with Audacious. But please correct me i...

GUI program in Porteus without window manager?

I'm trying to get minimal for when only running one program, and am wondering: Is it possible to run a program (e.g. Firefox or LibreOffice) without loading any of the Porteus desktops (kde/mate/xfce/lxqt)?

I tried some stuff like "xinit -- /usr/bin/firefox", but so far just trial-and-error(s).

Re: USM question

Well, I'm not sure what qt-4.8.7 is -- ut let's say for example that I chose "teamviewer-10.0.36281-x86_64-1_slack.txz 27556K" -- does that mean that I'm also downloading teamviewer? Or does it mean that my download of vlc-2.2.1-x86_64-1alien.txz is going to use "libQtCore.so.4" from teamviewer (but...

USM question

I've been adding some modules via the USM package manager. Often when downloading, I get the message "More than one package contains..." For example, on downloading VLC, it says: "More than one package contains: libQtCore.so.4" And then there is a list of 9 packages to choose from. My question is: w...

Porteus with ext2, ext4, fat32

I spent many hours (okay, almost 2 days) setting up Porteus on a fat32 formatted USB. I then read about the additional features available with a linux file system. So I formatted another USB to ext2, and copied that entire Porteus setup onto it. However, I noticed some strange latency/sluggishness o...

Problem saving Firefox settings in a module

I'm trying to use Copy2Ram to load my desktop layout and various program settings via a module. My goal is to set it all up once, and then have those settings never change. Using the module (.xzm) method, the Porteus desktop layout seems to load okay, and my Firefox settings (under Firefox's "Edit -...

Re: Run script after Xfce menu panel has loaded?

That worked - thank you francois! I put the script in the /porteus/rootcopy/ folder I'm not sure if the order of autostart items matters (some of them are items on the xfce menu panel), but I put it at the bottom by starting the name with zzz. Whether that makes a difference or not, it's working. :)...

However, if I run this script after boot, they appear correctly: #!/bin/bash killall xfce4-panel xfce4-panel My question is: Where can I put this script so that it runs AFTER the Xfce desktop has loaded? I saw the instructions about p...

Re: Notification area icons of menu panel are highlighted

Strange observation:

Approximately 25% of the time when I boot, the networking icon appears correctly. Usually it is whited. The volume icon is always whited.

Re: Notification area icons of menu panel are highlighted

@brokenman -I moved the menu panel from the top of the screen to the bottom. And I added a shortcut to LibreOffice. But I didn't resize the panel. -When I logout of the default user and then login to the root account (which has the default Porteus layout with menu bar at top), the icons are still wh...
