Re: Porteus 3.1rc feedback

@fanthom These issues will probably go away as LXQt reaches 1.0. Your present task is akin to changing a flat tire on a moving vehicle. Rather than irritating and frustrating potential users, along with potential questions without answers, perhaps the LXQt 3.1 final should include an " * " denoting ...

Re: Porteus 3.1rc feedback

@fanthom

I don't understand remaining issue "a"

Has "openbox-menu" been installed before using the new "menu.xml" ?

Re: Porteus 3.1rc feedback

RE: LXQt-32bit, Porteus 3.1-rc2 @fanthom, Here is the dynamic right-click Desktop menu. I believe it is in as complete a condition as presently possible with the LXDE - LXQt merger transition. All the menu categories completed except for "Preferences" which only duplicated 3 of the 14 applications. ...

Re: Porteus 3.1rc feedback

@ncmprhnsbl I was sincere with my "over my head" comment. After reading your post I headed over to http://lxlinux.com/, where "seppalta" has a heading "Openbox Menu [NEW]". After reading your initial hint of openbox-menu in your earlier post, I realize I was actually thinking "lxmenuman", which is a...

Re: Porteus 3.1rc feedback

RE: LXQt-32bit, Porteus 3.1-rc2 @fanthom You said: " it wont be possible to create this menu 'on the fly' upon desktop startup? i prefer to have it dynamic but if this is not an option then static is also ok. " fanthom, "dynamic" is way over my head, sorry. Actually, to this date, no distro, to my k...

Re: Porteus 3.1rc feedback

@fanthom Here's the menu.xml file cleaned up as best I could. Also, we are using no screensaver so a "lock-screen" option is not included, but everything else should work. Needs to replace the menu.xml file in /etc/xdg/openbox. Sean <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <openbox_menu xmlns="http://...

RE: LXQt-32bit, Porteus 3.1-rc2 menu.xml right-click Desktop pop-up menu @fanthom, I did not mean to leave you hanging concerning the menu.xml file. I'm working on it presently. Not being a power user, I may not be very fast. Hoping to have it finished Friday sometime, I hope that's okay? Since this...

Re: Porteus 3.1rc feedback

RE: LXQt-32bit, Porteus 3.1- rc2 Nice job on rc2 :-) Thanks, fanthom, for putting the Super User Mode PCManFM in System Tools. I really like this, except for the panel, but that's an upstream issue. However, I know they are working on it all the time. I'll be as patient as possible. Again it is grea...

Re: LXQT instead of LXDE?

This is a good discussion. Again shows how Porteus Admins/Developers clearly and intelligently interact with the users. I am always torn between which of the DE's to use. Since the furture of LXDE has been determined with the stated transition to LXQT, I resolved myself to give LXQT a good look and ...

Re: Do you use an email client?

Between your ISP-Mail-Server and your Mail-Client there can be "PoptrayMinus".

Re: Do you use an email client?

I use both But, until just last year I used only a Local email client. At this time I use only POP3, along with my favorite "watcher/deleter" application "PoptrayMinus". I may be very wrong in my assumption, and now off topic here, but it is my understanding that IMAC allows you to download your ema...

Re: Porteus 3.1rc1 feedback

RE: LXQt-32bit, Porteus 3.1-rc1 I notice under pcmanfm/Edit/Preferences/Behavior/Browsing, the option to "Open files with a single click" is grayed out/inactive. If there is no overwhelming reason against it, could this be activated ? Only because I've been around for a while did I come across openi...

Re: Porteus 3.1rc1 feedback

RE: LXQt-32bit, Porteus 3.1-rc1 I'll probably be in error on some reports simply because I'm no guru at this, so forgive me please. I've noticed remaining GUI configuration/setup duplication with some apps. Don't know if this is us, LXQt, or OpenBox. System Tools and Preferences has, however, been w...

Re: Why can't I see $1?

Perhaps you are using something else, but my understanding ...
