Intel Wireless WiFi: no firmware for iwlwifi [Solved]

I'm booting into an old laptop, and while the old Porteus 2.1 picks up WiFi no problem, the new Porteus 4.0 doesn't even offer a wireless device anymore! Although, it does recognize the hardware correctly, as per lspci output, as "Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300", kernel in use: iwlwifi. Now, that iw...

Openbox ignores login=root

Thanks @ncmprhnsbl , your fix works. By the way, should I use the official module or your other one 003-box-64-20180321.xzm ? Also, what's your reasons for using Openbox instead of LXDE, for example? How is it better overall? (I know why I'm looking to replace LXDE: its file manager, terminal, etc o...

Openbox ignores login=root

1. Install the official openbox ISO
2. modify the /boot/syslinux/porteus.cfg or specify at the startup "login=root"
3. GUI boots into guest account anyway
4. Simply replace the openbox module with the 003-lxde and Reboot successfully into root GUI.

Is this a restriction of the Openbox DE?

LyX 2.3.0 [Solved]

@jssouza, Thank you once again: the new module works by replacing the old one, with spellchecker etc. and no problems so far.

LyX 2.3.0 [Solved]

@jssouza , thanks for your LyX module it's been working great. They are now rolling out Lyx 2.3.1 https://www.lyx.org/Download . When/if you get a bit time could you update your module. Or else, teach me how you do this. If I'm capable of it at all, it felt like a quite sensitive process, getting t...

File Manager for LXDE

@ncmprhnsbl , @n0ctilucient , thanks: both polo and xfe work nice and seem like good alternatives. (Except, Polo has an annoying red banner warning about being root; xfe displays a message box about it each time it starts). Actually, pcmanfm-1.3.0 has been stable so far with the old libfm (with the...

File Manager for LXDE

I'm looking for alternatives or even to replace PCManFM 1.2.5 as a (default) FM for LXDE, because PCMan crashes/freezes for me on a daily basis. Even if it's a desktop system fault, and not of PCMan per se, I'm interested in what other FM are out there. I guess it'd have to play nicely with LXDE, wi...

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

Drag-n-drop from Firefox still doesn't work. Dragging a link from Firefox address bar, an image from a web page, etc, onto a folder of PCManFM or desktop fails without any message just bounces off. Dragging a link from Firefox address bar into an text file open in Leafpad actually works, adding a te...

snap (snapd)

ncmprhnsbl , thanks for the pdfshuffler-0.6.0+deps-x86_64.xzm. It works and crops! Which is remarkable given the time I've spent so far just trying to even install (prerequisites to) another python program, krop. It freezes often when I click too much on the GUI, so needs a fresh restart every now ...

snap (snapd)

What about using Acrobat with Wine? I've tried a couple of Acrobat portable solutions. Both kind of work until it comes to the inner dialogs where the GUI is useless maybe due to fonts/DPI incompatibility with my wine (wine-3.11-x86_64-1sg.xzm, 0050-compat32-multilib-ftw.xzm) https://image.ibb.co/f...

Could someone please help me make my Porteus snap-ready if possible? It's installable on linux https://docs.snapcraft.io/core/install , I hope it can be installed on porteus too. The software I've been trying to install, krop , which I need to crop my pdf pages, is offered as a snap . Otherwise I've...

WinDjView

Thank you, @fulalas , I'm now using the newer Wine from the link. It didn't resolve the issue with WinDjView -- possibly because it's not a proper 64-bit application after all. See the attached wine-windows-generated backtrace below. So, I still need the 0050-compat32-multilib-ftw.xzm and 32-bit Win...

WinDjView

WinDjView is the best at rendering djvu scanned books I've seen. One should be able to just install the windows version onto the Wine 3.5 . That works for SumatraPDF and other (64-bit) windows apps. WinDjView installer apparently does install a win64 binary. Unfortunately it crashes at startup, as i...

perl-tk compatible with perl of Porteus 4.0

@jssouza, thank you, I've just followed your procedure and it worked! I guess this is how we build from source - good to know for future. I'll use the module by itself tomorrow and if it still works, this is solved!
