Re: Systemd ... a can of worms

How helpful or interesting would it be to have an "unbinding" poll rating user's need for boot speed?

Something such as:

please rate your boot speed priority from 10 to 1, (1 being "highest or first" priority)


or, 1 to 10, or whatever the best way to do it would be.

Re: Porteus 3.1rc feedback

1) Porteus 3.1-rc2 32bit Mate Before today all Mate testing was done with VirtualBox and the .iso, and that worked fine. However, today I tried to install this to a 4Gig USB flash drive. I tried using several machines to no avail. Using a CD and Porteus Installer resulted in a minute or two of nothi...

Conky on demand

Does anybody here use Conky? I do myself with a full top to bottom right edge 2" wide on my 23" monitor. I've used it for years and don't mind it being there at all, but lately I've been wondering if there was a way to place Conky into a wide vertical panel, and make the panel auto-hide. Since all m...

RE: Mate-32bit, Porteus 3.1-rc2

This is really nice. Any idea whether Mate will bring the Gnome-color-chooser up to date, so the panel characters can be adjusted to suit the background?

Other than the previously mentioned 'search dupes' under Accessories, this is solid and comfortable for me.

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: 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.

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 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 ...
