The one you have is Qt4. Porteus 4 KDE has Qt5 modules. So probably try with qt5 modules from that link.

Ed_P, probably missing Qt libs, which are by default present in KDE. Activate qt modules from Qt 5.9.5 for Porteus 4.0, and you should get the GUI.

Cannot test it as mega uploads are not downloadable here.

AltGr key not operative

Hi osjbe,

Is it possible that you have a sub variant of the French keyboard?
Could you tell us which key along with AltGr should map to "@" and which to "|"?

missing pydoc module

Maybe try the other way round.
Here are the python packages from Slackware current at the time when Cinnamon was built for Porteus 4. These might work for your use case.

python-2.7.14-x86_64-1.txz
python3-3.6.5-x86_64-2.txz

LyX 2.3.0 [Solved]

Here you go, lyx 2.3.1, if you're still looking for the module: http://www.mediafire.com/file/rsrgzeuq83sxd2s/lyx-2.3.1-4.0-x86_64-jss.xzm/file Creating this module was a little tricky, since Slackware has moved on since we created lyx 2.3.0 module and hence its dependencies have moved on as well.

[Solved] Security Boot Fail

Happy for you Ed_P :good: The 1st menuitem works. The 2nd doesn't and I am still playing with it. Probably because that is the EFI loader that is not signed, hence with secure boot on, you cannot boot with it. Oh, BTW, this flash drive, should work on *any* machine, making it truely portable :happy62:

Cinnamon 3.8.6 for Porteus 4 (x86_64)

Hi Ed_P,

It is not finding the msgfmt command during installation of the applet. The msgfmt command is in the 05-devel module. Activate 05-devel module and then install the applet. 05-devel module is needed only during installation of the applet and not during its usage.

Cinnamon 3.8.6 for Porteus 4 (x86_64)

Thanks Jack , please note it is for Porteus 4 and not Porteus current. So expect troubles if you mix and match the base (you mentioned choppiness), since CINNAMON is not that forgiving. For 4 desktops: - Right click on the panel - Select add applets to the panel - Select Workspace Switcher from the ...

Security Boot Fail

It also takes away with the whole portability idea. I mean, we say install porteus on a USB drive that you carry in your pocket, which you can boot your customized OS on any computer. That's not really true is it. You can boot it only from your computers where you have disabled secure boot. But outs...

So basically you don't boot to Ubuntu you boot to grub. Interesting.
Isn't it? I thought this might be easier, because one does not need to go into the bios, and turn off secure boot. One step lesser, hence easier.

It would be nice to figure out how the Ubuntu system supports the Secure Boot option so Porteus can do it also.
You need to sign the grub bootloader. Ubuntu does it with Canonical's signature, fedora with red hat's

Unclear to me. Are you referring to the /EFI/boot/ folder? Can you post an ls of the boot folder? EFI and boot are seperate directories guest@porteus:~$ ls -Ral /mnt/sdc1/EFI/ /mnt/sdc1/EFI/: total 12 drwxrwxrwx 3 root root 4096 Aug 23 11:30 ./ drwxrwxrwx 13 root root 4096 Jan 1 1970 ../ drwxrwxrwx...

Security Boot Fail

So the USB's EFI & boot folders end up containing both Ubuntu and Porteus files? No, the EFI and boot folders are only that of ubuntu. I put the porteus kernel and initrd in this boot folder. And copy the porteus folder onto the USB. Then I add an entry (or multiple entries) in the boot/grub/grub.c...
