snap or flatpak for Porteus?

With usm sbo flatpak, I built flatpak-1.1.0-x86_64-1_SBo.xzm. It needed more recent libraries, but it works: I downloaded abiword and gnome chess. However, there is still this GLib-GObject-WARNING. It would be nice to have a /usr/share/applications/flatpak.desktopthat that could be called by the bro...

snap (snapd) for Porteus?

Bravo Kulle! Your efforts have yielded something very interesting. Flatpak could be a good contender to replace usm or as an alternative to usm. A look to flatpak productivity software section only is quite interesting: libre-office, abiword, wps office, okular, evince. Archlinux howto on flatpak ht...

Making porteus better: what is your wishlist

porteus is a very small print distro. This is why you do not get so much packages stock.

gparted comes stock with xfce. On other desktop, usm will build it easily.

For the cloud service openbox is also easy to install, usm.

[Solved] Include mini-browser Netsurf in the future

Or maybe you could build the update-netsurf yourself based on update-firefox and submit it for the next...
