init: Id "x1" respawning too fast

I have the same problem and it occurs randomly. I found that adding a pause of 2-4 seconds at the start of /etc/rc.d/rc.4 allows me to far more consistently boot straight to X. This happens in Virtualbox, eeePC netbook and some old Toshiba laptop as well. All random. It's as if X is (re)starting bef...

Porteus 5.0 RC2 DE bug reports

[/url] The selection/highlight colour was blue in 4.0 and 5.0 RC1. I tried to look for the setting in SpaceFM configs but failed with that too. yep, something a bit funky with the gtk3 version, i guess .. seems to be using the application background colour instead of the highlight colour.. best i c...

Porteus 5.0 RC2 DE bug reports

Minor bug to report for Openbox version: The desktop icons have a white label colour (which is fine) and white selection highlight colour (this is a problem). The not-selected icons look normal, but labels/names of selected ones are not visible because of it. The selection/highlight colour was blue ...

Porteus 5.0 RC2 bug reports

Minor bug to report for Openbox version:

Desktop icon text highlight/selection colour is white, which is a problem because the text itself is also white.

Did not exist in 4.0 or 5.0 RC1 AFAIR and I could not trace the highlight colour settings in SpaceFM configs either.

OpenBox in 5.0 - disable the Build/Changelog notification?

Thank you. It worked.

I completely understand why it is there during the development and I know I'm rushing it

OpenBox in 5.0 - disable the Build/Changelog notification?

Dear Porteus masters, I am trying to put the OpenBox version of Porteus (5.0rc2) on some old laptop that will go to a child that hasn't got any computer yet. With the help of the forums and premade bundles, Porteus is flying on this machine compared to anything else (useful) that I tried, so thank y...

bundle - Zoom for Porteus 5.0rc1

I tested it on Porteus 5.0rc2. The module from the MediaFire link above didn't work at all. The module from the 'bundles' application in system settings did allow me to log in and text-chat but would not allow video connection, requiring update. Luckily, all that needed doing was to update the conte...

USM Error in Porteus 5

Yeah, I found about it too. Main problem is, I found, that it doesn't recognise when a file is unavailable at the expected location, creates an empty one and then tries to decompress it. This is the gzip: /var/usm/alien/CHECKSUMS.md5.gz: unexpected end of file type of error. It would be great if the...

Porteus-5.0-rc1-Openbox with ZST compression

I will be a huge fan of zstd. I am playing around with older laptops (early Core2Duo era) and switching to zstd makes a measurable difference of about 25% reduction in boot time (from ~20 to ~15 between boot menu selection and desktop). Installed on the standard 80GB internal HDD. I have installed t...

OpenBox and keyboard/font/codepage bug

Err... Yes, I should have made it clear that I understand it was rc1. It was present in final 4.0 too, though.

If you are saying it was already found and fixed in the current development release - that's great to hear!

Thank you very much again for looking into this, ncmprhnsbl.

OpenBox and keyboard/font/codepage bug

Thank you! :Yahoo!: How the hell did you figure it out? :worthy: The problem is triggered when "grp:switch" is present in "toggle_option" in gxkb.cfg, this is why removing the file allows gxkb to keep working fine - it is not present in the file generated by gxkb by default. As far as I understand, ...

OpenBox and keyboard/font/codepage bug

Strange, I set the config via Porteus Config Centre, then via porteus(...).cfg, then via xorg.conf.d/(...).conf but didn't look into gxkb.cfg yet - and it was the default one. See https://imgur.com/a/MmZoqwP However, changing this to PL did hot help at all - the issue is still the same. New informat...

OpenBox and keyboard/font/codepage bug

I love Porteus for the 2 older laptops I have lying around. It makes them boot dozens of times faster than any other desktop distribution (or Windows, for that matter) :Yahoo!: . I also love the OpenBox version the most (for looks AND speed), but it seems to be the one I can't use due to bugs that m...
