Why Double-click has been replaced by one-click ?

lukaluki, thanks for your feedback. It seems xf86-input-libinput was missing while building KDE5, hence mouse configuration is missing in KDE system settings.
I will rebuild KDE5 with xf86-input-libinput as dependency.

Porteus-v4.0rc4 bug reports

I've found that keyboard reverts back to 'us' as before. Hmm, I was today the whole day on Mate with kb layout "at" with a programmatical fix in the mate startup scripts what I mentioned earlier, and not once it reverted back to "us". I will keep an eye on it. Maybe you are running gsettings much l...

Porteus-v4.0rc4 bug reports

The keyboard behaviour operates as in version 3.2.2: Whenever the desktop is alive, the us layout is back into bussiness no matter what cheatcode was chosen at startup M. Eerie , can you execute the following command and then check if keyboard layout stays in es layout and does not jump to us layou...

Porteus-v4.0rc4 bug reports

If cheatcodes like changes=, volume=, kmap= etc. are added in the new porteus-v4.0-x86_64.cfg instead of passing through the bootloader, then these cheatcodes will not be present in /proc/cmdline. Hence porteus scripts that check only /proc/cmdline for cheatcodes would fail to implement the cheatcod...

Porteus module activation status

We now have a new problem :). What if extramod cheatcode is not passed to the bootloader, but added in the cfg file? The application should then check both /proc/cmdline as well as cfgfile for the cheatcode.

I guess this is now a general problem in all porteus scripts that check /proc/cmdline.

Porteus module activation status

can't get enough of this :) So I ported this to Qt Quick. Link here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/85343keoeziak33/jssouza-lsmodules-28347ecfa62d.zip At the moment (Porteus v4.0 rc4) only KDE has qt quick modules. So if you are on Porteus v4.0 rc4 KDE5, please take a look at this. You would also nee...

donald , load=DE would help if you have a DE sepcific module in optional. Eg: If you built a module for mate, just make sure you have "mate" in its module name, - eg: easytag-mate.xzm. Now, put this in optional, and load=mate would also load all mate specific modules from optional ;) . This would a...

Can they both share the changes folder? IMHO, they should work, but may not be true for say, common applications between your modules. One setting you do for one DE may conflict with the other. Why cant you use 2 separate changes directories - one for mate and one for lxde? You would have the same ...

Jack, you could then also put both mate and lxde in base and use noload=lxde load=mate cheatcodes to boot to mate and noload=mate load=lxde to boot to lxde.

No need. Just create 2 entries in your bootloader. BTW you can also use from= cheatcode. Eg: rename porteus dir to jack1 in 2nd partition and to jack2 in 3rd partition. Then use from= jack1 to boot 2nd partition and from= jack2 to boot 3rd partition. Points to note: You copy entire porteus dir of yo...

Sure you can, you can use gparted. I assume the first partition is EFI? Just use cfgfile= cheatcode (or sgnfile= if using older than porteus v4.0) in your bootloader to boot from either 2nd or 3rd partition. Then rename the cfg and sgn files accordingly on your 2nd and 3rd partitions. BTW: 50mb + 16...

Porteus-v4.0rc4 bug reports

M. Eerie, thanks for your feedback, currently the locales are not fully implemented, and would be handled properly once we reach Porteus v4.0 final.

cheatcode keyb=es in my case
I think the cheatcode would be kmap=es. Could you verify please? Thanks.

GCC 4.6

The command says 'porteus 3.4.4'. Didn't know such version exists I think that is the kernel version. Just verifying from an old announcement - Porteus v1.2 final is out! - kernel bumped to version 3.4.4 So you are probably on porteus 1.2 like you assumed. cat /etc/porteus-version should give you y...

Porteus-v4.0rc4 bug reports

And then the question of which one gets used when on EFI vs BIOS systems. Does not matter EFI or BIOS. But if you mean which has higher precendence, from /mnt/live/finit it looks like porteus-v4.0-x86_64.cfg is checked first, hence has first preference. brokenman , finit in initrd has the function ...
