Re: Two questions

The "panel across the bottom" size problem is a bug and doesn't usually happen all the time. A reboot should correct it.

Re: Application Error

Thanks Slaxmax. I didn't see Convert as an option or sub-option when I Right clicked on the file but the txz2xzm command worked. Will test it out later.

Convert?

This openjre 7u51 file is 25% bigger than the original jre 7u45 download you gave me. Any particular reason for the size increase?

Re: Application Error

Actual finding Java RTE modules for Slackware is not that easy. Though I could be searching incorrectly.

I didn't put it there, the cheatcode did. And the files are actually in both locations. :unknown:

Re: keepassx

Nope, KeePassX, an app separate from KeePass, is not compatible with the current KeePass 2.x database format. :wall: https://www.keepassx.org/faq There is a newer version of KeePassX which will read the KeePass 2.x database but it is in alpha release mode and has been since May 2012. Anyone know if ...

Re: keepassx

I tried wine, mostly red, and it didn't help. :D :

I know the Windows version of keepass is current and suspect maybe the keepassx version isn't, or maybe because the database file is on a NTFS partition.

Re: Application Error

Thanks tome but not sure how to do that. I looked at the Java site and didn't see a version for Slackware. I did however find the Java ControlPanel, mnt/live/memory/images/jre-7u45-x86_64-1.xzm/usr/lib64/java/jre/bin, ran it and changed the security settings such that I got a prompt when accessing t...

[Solved] keepassx

On my Windows systems I use KeePass for user ids and passwords. I stumbled upon keepassx in the Porteus Package Manager and gave it a try. But it a) fails to open the .kdbx database file I use on Windows and b) it alters the file such that Windows then can't open it. Anyone else having problems with...

Re: Porteus changing distro

I think the poll is over the head of most/all Linux newbies which I think are a large percentage of forum users. You should consider a different poll, one that asks what capabilities people want with Porteus. What are they going to use it for. For example: What functions are important to you using P...

Re: Porteus Desktop Edition 3.0 rc2 bugs/feedback thread

I didn't vote because I wasn't aware there was poll being taken!! I suspect most newbies are like myself and only visit the Newbie section of the forum. And if interested in 3.0 issues have a link going directly to the topic. (I do) Having looked at the poll I don't feel that I am qualified to vote ...
