Re: ERROR when drag and drop from browser to the desktop/fol

Thanks but one wouldn't be doing that every time, besides what about image dragging?

do you reproduce the error on your system?

ERROR when drag and drop from browser to the desktop/folder

Porteus 2.1 x32 LXDE Firefox. Drag&drop an image, or the address-bar URL, onto the desktop or a folder. No files are created in the target. Instead an odd "Finished" window appears with an error message "The specified location is not supported" At the same time the .xsession-errors is ammended with ...

Re: save session

Thank you for all the answers and comments. Indeed I had guessed after posting it would be simply writing porteus/changes on the USB connected disk. That's why changing Cache folder location in Firefox to be on a different drive (host's computer HDD) made quite a difference in performance. I'll be w...

Re: save session

I don't know how to attach a picture to convince you.
And I don't have save.dat
So all my original questions stand.

Re: Latex + Lyx

Anyway, using whatever packages available from pkgs.org (I used .rpm, people are kind enough to generate them for other distros) to get precompiled binaries of missing dependencies/libraries/etc., I got both Lyx and Texworks set up. It took me 2 days though, so I will be looking for a more automatic...

Re: save session

It says though, "Only required for saving changes on FATx or NTFS filesystem"
It is also asking me for existing savefile, I want an utility that already knows it. Indeed, I think I have not a file at the moment but a mounted USB folder porteus/changes

save session [Solved]

Does my session live completely in the RAM? How often are the changes saved to the persistent storage (/porteus/changes on my ext4 USB drive, I guess)? Can I force it? Can I change the frequency? Or is it saved on Logout only?
Thanks
Igor

Re: Latex + Lyx

I was hoping to use my favourite editor, Texworks. But unfortunately it is not installed with Texlive (unlike in Windows or Mac). Texworks http://www.tug.org/texworks/ doesn't provide a binary for Linux. I have found Texlive in Debian repository through the Porteus Package Manager. There are buttons...

Re: Latex + Lyx

Well, if indeed a whole texlive module would need to be expanded fully into RAM and it's not practical, I'd rather choose to install it into my persistent storage. In this way I could be installing only packages I need. I downloaded, unpacked and ran export http_proxy=http://username:password@proxy_...

Latex + Lyx

Hi and thanks for such a great project! How do I go about adding the latest TeX Live and Lyx to it: either as modules or install into persistent storage (if I understand my options correctly)? TexLive is a very large 2GB system http://www.tug.org/texlive/acquire-iso.html, but I guess I'd rather have...
