Re: Libreoffice 6.1.x - fails to start Draw, Impress due to new Avahi dependency

Looks like the double menu entries are coming because of 1. The module creates symlink from /opt/libreoffice6.1/share/xdg/ to /usr/share/applications 2. The activate script, which collects all .desktop files from the module and installs them using desktop-file-install. The lines from /usr/bin/activa...

Re: Simple Screen Recorder

Hi raja, Oh ok. I asked for the DE just so that I could provide you a module. but if you can do it on your own, then Godspeed :good: As for your question, Canẗ USM decide exactly the requirements, based on installed stuff? My thoughts on that is that porteus 4 was built on the slackware current snap...

Unlike its name, Slax is no longer Slackware based
Actually, the name has also been changed. It is no longer Slax, rather S.L.A.X - Small Live Auxiliary linuX. From here:

[Solved] Security Boot Fail

With Secure Boot disabled the file's name is cat.mod. With Secure Boot enabled the module's name is cat.
Interesting. Maybe you could just check for the file's existence then :unknown:

Code: Select all

if [ -f  /boot/grub/x86_64-efi/cat ]; then
    # Secure boot enabled
else
   # Secure boot disabled 
fi

[Solved] Security Boot Fail

Hi Ed_P, it looks like the decision of whether secure boot is enabled or disabled is determined by rmmod cat. What does this command do?
Is it possible that in both scenarios (secure boot enabled or disabled), control goes into the if case and hence parms get specified in both cases?

[Solved] 4.0 doesn't support wifi on netbook. 3.2.2 does.

Great Ed_P :good:

You are right though, it is a bug. Till 3.2.2 we provided proprietary broadcom wl module and blacklisted opensource drivers so that wl would not conflict with opensource drivers. But in 4.0, since we are not providing wl, the opensource drivers should not be blacklisted.

4.0 doesn't support wifi on netbook. 3.2.2 does.

Looks like your wifi controller is broadcomm. 4.0 does not have broadcomm wl while 3.2.2 had. Try loading 4.0 with 3.2.2's 000-kernel and vmlinuz and check by running lsmod if broadcomm wl is loaded, and if you get wireless connectivity back. Another option is to give opensource drivers a chance by ...

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
