Re: printing from kiosk

I made some headway but never got it to work. I got it to the point where all dependencies were resolved and everything appeared to be in order, cups was showing that it was sending the document to the printer, but nothing ever came out of the printer. I got burned out trying to get this sorted but ...

Re: Boot-Up Run Of Of Space - Porteus3.0

It sounds to me like you filled up your save.dat file as you suspected. When you booted into the other system, you're seeing space available to that system (whatever is in RAM if you don't have saved changes turned on or whatever is left in the save.dat for that installation). Free space you see on ...

Re: Porteus Desktop Edition 3.0 rc1 bugs/feedback thread

@ramine, thanks, I will take a look. It may be a kernel config issue with your sound driver being compiled into the kernel instead of as a module. What's the brand/model of your card? @Cyril, this appears to be an issue with xfdesktop, reverting to an older version fixes it. There is a newer version...

Re: Porteus 3,0 First Newbie Look

Hi Jim, First, a point of clarification -- you said you logged off and when you logged back on, your xfce settings were gone. Did you reboot your computer, or did you log out of xfce and then entered your username and password to get right back into xfce without shutting down the machine? If you did...

Re: how to get xvidcap functioning under porteus

Francois, Did you try re-downloading the package? I just tested it in 2.1 XFCE and it seemed to work fine. I'm wondering if maybe you got a partial download. The error message you got at first, "bash: /usr/bin/xvidcap: No such file or directory" is an odd one, because xvidcap would have to be presen...

Re: No sound - on an Acer 722 netbook

You had an /etc/asound.conf file earlier (it was created by my script). Regardless, you can simply create a file at /etc/asound.conf (as root) and input the text brokenman provided, and then run '/etc/rc.d/rc.alsa restart' (also as root) to restart your sound services with the new settings. However,...

Re: No sound - on an Acer 722 netbook

Is it just the test file that isn't working (i.e. other sounds are playing) or is there still no sound at all from the system? I had another report of the system sound working but the test button making no noise, maybe the test file isn't in place for some reason. If the whole system is still withou...

Re: No sound

Hi Ed, My guess is you want to use the SB card as default, but the other card keeps getting picked up as default instead. The "Sound Card Select" application that shipped with 2.1 wasn't able to handle systems with multiple sound cards that used the same driver, but I have since upgraded it to try a...

Re: XFCE for x64 bits Porteus 2.1 rewite X files

Yes, this is how we have set things up in 2.1. Each desktop module has it's own /etc/rc.d/rc.4 file that starts the desktop, so the last module loaded will be the one that is set as the default. keep the desktop module you want as default (for example, lxde) in /porteus base and put the others in /p...

Re: pstocanonbj or bjfilter [x86_64]

Are you running porteus 2.1 with the 07-printing.xzm module, or are you running an older version and/or a custom printer driver module? The default printing module for 2.1 comes with cups-bjnp which is required for printing over a network on some canon printers. I can't tell you how long it took me ...

Re: Different apps on different DE

This is definitely one of the "cons" of having a modular system. Might I ask what package was working for you in MATE but not LXDE and what deps were missing? I'd imagine this case is fairly rare except when you're dealing with DE-related applications. Geany and mtpaint aren't really an issue in the...

Re: Deactivation Error

What module is it, does it contain a program or daemon, etc., that is running? Generally speaking, when I've had trouble deactivating, it's been because there's a process still running or a binary from another module that requires a library contained in the module in question. There may be better wa...

Re: Selecting Default Sound Card

Great! The music on the test button is not very loud, so if you hit it while the volume was turned down or there's other sounds going on, you might not hear it. I was erring on the side of less obnoxious. If you don't hear it at all with the sound turned up in a quiet area, it might be that aplay di...
