Porteus Package Manager

FYI When expanding the width of the Porteus categories/keywords window the width of the Category widens needlessly also. Makes reading the Description column harder without scrolling or using the Full Description button.

Re: ISO - save changes

Ok, I think I'm done here. I deleted the porteussave.dat file on the USB flash drive. I rebooted to Windows and ran CHKDSK on the flash drive. CHKDSK found no errors. I readded the EXIT: option to my changes= boot parameter. I rebooted Porteus and use the attached image app to recreate the Porteus S...

Re: Mouse pad option

in KDE4 you should be able to do it through kde4 'system settings' -> touchpad (can't remember exac name - at work now). :oops: I don't know what I'm in. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Touchpad_Synaptics#Disable_Trackpad_while_Typing. VERY nice. Is there an English version? :unknown: add the ...

Re: ISO - save changes

Ok, I removed EXIT: from my changes= cheatcode, rebooted, most of my changes are still here but the FF bookmarks I've added are now gone.

Re: ISO - save changes

:oops: When I enter the commands in Terminal mode the error msg flashes by and I don't see it but in my posting it's hard to miss!! What the heck??

The thing is the file is working!! Let me reboot without the EXIT: option and see if that makes a difference.

Mouse pad option

On my netbook I have an ELAN mouse pad and I have apparently big hands because the mouse moves around frequently when I type and brush against the pad. Thus when I'm watching the keyboard, rather than the screen, what I type ends up in the wrong places. On Windows I have the options of having the po...

Re: ISO - save changes

Ok, your box example is better than my window example, and deleting the old and adding a new is an interesting option, but if you use that approach it should be labeled Replace rather than Resize. I like the idea of resizing an existing space file, ie not loosing what has been saved and keeping the ...

Re: ISO - save changes

The problem is the Space File Manager's Resize function. I think you mean Porteus Settings Centre resize. Well there's no question you know more about Porteus than I do. This is a screen shot of the app I used to resize the save file. My results have previously been described. http://imageshack.us/...

Re: ISO - save changes

you are booting Porteus from FAT16 formatted partition Yes and it is the only partition on the flash drive. and getting 'unsupported fs' message when linuxrc is trying to use it as savefile container, right? I'm not sure what is prompting the error msg. But it is about the 3rd or 4th line produced ...
