Re: How to get it. [README FIRST]

The 64 bit Kde version on site is showing the same error after mounting.....the 64 bit Lxde mounted and copied over without errors.

Re: How do I install wireless drivers for TL-WN727N?

I'll try it tomorrow. What are the differences between reular Porteus and Nemesis? I've noticed it doesn't have XFCE. Is it possible to add it later or am I stuck with KDE? I've been searching the Internet and I found out that linux kernel v4 and up supports it by default. Is there any way to updat...

Re: How do I install wireless drivers for TL-WN727N?

@aus9 If you could tell me exactly what you are talking about and how to do it I'm willing to try it. It's not like it's hard to get porteus installed again in case something goes wrong. I imagine aus9 is referring to Porteus Nemesis....it's based on Arch rather than Slackware. http://forum.porteus...

Re: Router Wireless Password

I haven't used iwconfig, so no help there.....I have used wpa_passphrase and then wpa_supplicant and connected without problems.

I usually do this: wpa_passphrase [SSID] [password] >/etc/wireless.conf

then

wpa_supplicant -B -iwlan0 -c/etc/wireless.conf.....followed by: dhcpcd wlan0

Works for me.

Re: Router Wireless Password

When in the console run 'nmtui'.....works fine here.....assuming you're running Nemesis.

Re: Can this be fix or not

Well, the USB will always show as thats what you're booting from and Porteus doesn't need additional time to find hard drives or partitions, at least I've never noticed that.

I have no idea why sometimes the partitions will not show up.

Re: Can this be fix or not

What part of it do you want to fix? Are the volumes all on one hard drive, or do you use a USB stick? Porteus mounts whatever it finds on boot, though there is a cheatcode to stop automounting.....I think it's 'noauto'....could be 'nohd' Do you want to see all the volumes, or none? In Mate, you can ...

Re: Suggestions

@brokenman, I tested the icon set on an Xfce with Nemesis 3.5....the menu displays huge icons for Graphics, Office, Logout, and others. The Office icon is about 2.5 centimetre high by 2 centimetre wide....quite large. The others are smaller, but not much. I also found that memory usage was increased...

Re: Porteus Nemesis v3.5 BUG REPORTS

Ed_P, So, you weren't able to start X with lxdm either? Your post is confusing as it looks as if the commands were run from a terminal, rather than the console. As for consolekit, you can run "/etc/init.d consolekit restart" and hopefully it will kick in. Seems consolekit is somewhat tempermental, I...

Re: Porteus Nemesis v3.5 BUG REPORTS

@Ed_P

Try, as guest, "startx /usr/bin/startlxde".....if that doesn't work, try "lxdm"....need to sudo or su.

Then run the ck-list-sessions again.

Re: Porteus Nemesis v3.5 BUG REPORTS

@Blaze
BTW why i can't use pacaur under root account

you cannot perform this operation as root


Why? pacaur is working only in guest account?
Thats normal for pacaur, all the building is done as user, installing by root.
