Re: How To Tell Whether Screen Hi Rez Active in R31?

And give it both under porteus and mint. If the output is different and you prefer mint display, you will use xrandr to set it under porteus. :) Will do shortly! Thanks!

Re: How To Tell Whether Screen Hi Rez Active in R31?

1.0 Questions: FYI screen specs via Porteus: Where exactly did you get that info in the porteus menu? Do you have two displays connected to your linux box? 1) the manufacturer and model of your display could be quite useful I'm not doing anything special, no add-ons or anything. It's just the Think...

FAA How To Tell Whether Screen Hi Rez Active in R31?

Greetings! I have a R31 Thinkpad with a 20gig HD once containing a corrupted version of XP and right now running with XFCE 32bit Porteus 3.1 on it. In Linux, some background images and those on image viewers show that rainbow halo effect sometimes found when high resolution images are being shown in...

No Fan or CPU Readings From PlugIns

Greetings! From a Ubuntu archive I converted xfce4-sensors-plugin_1.2.6-1_i386 (also xfce4-sensors-plugin-1.2.4 as well) into xzm and from USM archives I converted lm_sensors-3.3.4-i486-1 but I still can't get a panel gauge of CPU levels and fan speed even though I'm going by the Ubuntu maven book. ...

Re: Is it safe to rename Guest and create another Guest?

Help.

I changed the guest password from guest to avalon and now the system won't log into guest at all, even using boot-up script menu. I just keep being retuned to the dark blue LOGIN screen. I've since changed the guest pw several times but no cigar. Am I locked out for good?

Re: Games: what about your favorite game on linux

Additional games needed. :Yahoo!: Eldevin works surprizingly well on Porteus, as a standalone cliient and in browser (kudos to Haunted Cow!) but I can really do with a lot more linux MMOs (wistfully Neverwinter or at leastRegnum graqde!) in general. Steam is no real solution under Porteus because i...

Which version has XFCE modules for 4.11 & 4.12?

Greetings! Subject line says it all! My 32bit XFCE Porteus 3.1 installation has XFCE 4.10 installed. I'd like to check out 3.1 under other XFCE versions I know were in previous CDs but don't recall which. Does anyone know what Porteus archive has XFCE modules for XFCE 4.11 and 4.12? Thanks!

Re: Is it safe to rename Guest and create another Guest?

Greetings! As per a Mint maven I used "gentent passwd" to list and check names logged on this (experimental) flash in the listing below. In learning Porteus and Linux, my tinkering created new user accounts via addusers, but the jimwg one doesn't log-in or work as though it has no home like the othe...

Is it safe to rename Guest and create another Guest?

Greetings! Many YouTube reviews on Porteus stress on getting a main user account outside default Root to avoid unrecoverable mistakes and accidents so I've been doing that on several flash drive here via the Guest account. Only thing is now it's far more "me" than guest now so I'd like to rename tha...

Re: Users & Groups Icon Appears But Not Menu

Hi. I just took a look at what you're trying to bring to Porteus. http://pkgs.org/debian-sid/debian-main-i386/gnome-system-tools_3.0.0-4_i386.deb.html Section "Requires" lists many packages on which gst depends. So first question, do you have them all installed? After reading this http://www.linuxq...

Users & Groups Icon Appears But Not Menu

Greetings! I just converted both gnome-system-tools_2.30.2-2_i386 and gnome-system-tools_3.0.0-3ubuntu5.1_i386 into xzm modules to gain a Users & Groups entry in the Settings menu, but though their icons appear, the menu and apps haven't. Home school prefers the Users & Groups menus route than the C...
