Re: Archive Manager Won't Work After Transplant

yup. you can do this from the command line too, I find it a bit easier but may be in the minority there... su #enter root password chown -R guest:guest /home/guest chown= "change ownership" -R= recursively (apply to all files and folders within the listed folder) guest:guest= the new user and group ...

Re: Archive Manager Won't Work After Transplant

Is this with Porteus XFCE 2.1 or 3.0rc1? There's a known bug with file-roller (aka archive manager) in 3.0rc1 which I have sorted out but this sounds a little different. Does it occur if you boot up without saved changes active? Also, are you saving changes to a .dat file on a Windows filesystem (FA...

Re: pstocanonbj or bjfilter [x86_64]

Hi Blaze, I would like to include this support in the printer module, but have a couple more questions for you -- 1) are you also using the compat-32 module? I see you've got 32-bit binaries in your ip1500.xzm module and some 32-bit libraries, but you don't have the full compliment of 32-bit librari...

Re: single file download to update ?

If you are only looking to update your kernel and not the rest of your porteus system, you must replace, at a minimum, /boot/syslinux/vmlinuz (the kernel itself) and /porteus/base/000-kernel.xzm (the kernel modules aka drivers) -- these two are a matched pair and if you put the wrong kernel with the...

Re: Transporting Porteus

This one is rather odd. hitsware, please do try as guest again. You don't need to reinstall for this, just hit TAB on the bootloader menu screen and use the arrow and backspace keys to remove the cheatcode, 'login=root' (see our cheatcode documentation for more on that if needed), then hit enter to ...

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

I'm afraid this is a gvfs error. I believe it's related to gvfsd-http, which is not presently being built as a part of the gvfs package with lxde or xfce in Porteus. In order to add support for this, I would have to add libsoup (already in xfce), glib-networking, gnutls, libproxy, and likely a few m...

Re: No CD-DVD rom. Cannot mount it.

I just tested in 32-bit XFCE 3.0 RC1 and guest was able to load a CD and view the contents in thunar whether the CD was in the machine at boot up or if I add it later (it gets handled the same as a removeable flash drive as far as permissions go, if root mounted it, guest must provide the root passw...

Re: pstocanonbj or bjfilter [x86_64]

Nice work, blaze and francois! I'm happy you got it working! @blaze, is this with cups 1.6 and/or additional packages beyond the 07-printing.xzm module, or do you just need to have the ppd file? Did you have to link libraries as shown in that link? I'm hoping not... If you can provide a list of all ...

Re: frozen menu bar

hmm, definitely let us know if it continues cropping up, and if anyone else is seeing this, please chime in. If you can keep notes on what you're doing when it happens (e.g. if it happens when you activate/deactivate a module or open a particular program, etc) that will help. If it happens again, op...

Re: no netowrk configuration

Hehe -- I use it all the time when I break NM-applet or if I need to get online through text mode when initially compiling packages for my desktop modules. Still works like a champ!

Re: Different config for a new user - no sound & no DNS

You'll want to make sure your new user has the proper config files in place (I'd start by copying all of /home/guest into /home/$username/ and running chown'ing them to your new user), and make sure your user is a member of all the same groups as guest in /etc/groups. If you're not saving changes, y...
