Cinnamon 4.2.3 for Porteus 5.0rc1

Found the problem jssouza . 4.2.3 working much better now, no more right click problems. Note: When overlaying 00 modules in ISO files with 00 modules in extramod= folders make sure the file names match . :bangin: I had named your file 003-cinnamon-20190810.xzm so rather than replacing 003-cinnamon....

Porteus 5.0 Keeps Freezing

With your changes= cheatcode try adding the EXIT option to see if it helps. For example changes=EXIT:/porteussave.dat.

Cinnamon 4.2.3 for Porteus 5.0rc1

I'm not sure I can. :( I don't use 5 all the time, I spend most of my time with 4. But I'm reasonably sure the right click problem has been there but have I mentioned the problem before, probably but not sure where. Apparently you don't have the problem. :o

Problem loading porteussave.dat file

Have you tried changes=/porteussave.dat?

how to backup restore

I'm not aware of Porteus having a GUI backup/restore app, but USM can create an rdiff-backup module for you. I think backing up the changes folder is adequate for system changes but if you loose the partition you will have to reinstall Porteus before doing the restore. You should also backup the mod...
