How to Manually Add a Program to the Menu

Hi Ed_P,
thanks for the idea. But it doesn't work.
Error message:
/home/guest/google-chrome.sh: line 2: fg: no job control

What does that mean? what does "fg" mean?

How to Manually Add a Program to the Menu

$BOOTDEV cannot be used in a .desktop file.

works:
Exec=/mnt/sdb1/browser/google-chrome_/chrome/google-chrome %U

doesn't work:
Exec=$BOOTDEV/browser/google-chrome_/chrome/google-chrome %U

That's not a good thing because $BOOTDEV isn't always /mnt/sdb1

VirtualBox - Error on both v4 & v5

Hi fulalas,
I'm surprised, but VirtualBox-6.1.18-porteus-v5.0-x86_64-1prt.xzm also runs on Porteus 4.0 Xfce.
How can that be?

Log Out option "Suspend" on laptop

I have now found:
Some PC systems can't currently exit sleep states such as mem using only the kernel code accessed by this driver. They need help from userspace code to make the framebuffer work again.

"help from userspace code"
What does that mean?

Log Out option "Suspend" on laptop

Hi,
The "Suspend" logout option does not work on my laptop.
Cannot be started afterwards!
Doesn't Suspend work on all laptops?

But the rtcwake command works:
e.g.
su
toor
rtcwake -m standby -s 3600
And after an hour or by pressing the power button, the system is reactivated.
