Could you please advices what we should try next?
apologies, we put out a quite old build of mate, hence blueman and dbus-python are out of date..
maybe try:

Code: Select all

getpkg blueman dbus-python
this will get the latest from slackware current, compatible with python3.8..
will look into trying to update mate..

@paf, thanks for the feedback. :)

I can confirm the issue that you reported. We're still investigating it, but in the meantime try this guest module and let us know if it works for you:

YES! Many Thanks!

This Virtual Box guest module works perfectly.
No automount of the shared folders, but that is Virtual Box problem, as mounting the shared folders on the command line works perfectly.

Can I help with something more?

Dear @ncmprhnsbl,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
No reason to apologies. I am very happy that this project is in active development and thank yo again to development team.

I have run the command and I got the xzm modules saved in this folder: porteus_is_the_best_and_development_team_rocks :))
After I activated, i tried and ...icon appeard in tray area. I managed also to pari my headprones and tried to listen the first song: Tina Turner - The Best and it worked. I heard the song in headphones.

Thank you so much agan and again.
PS: as I mantion before, with the same changes loaded, on the same laptop, the RC2 is using less Mb than RC1 with alomst 30-40 Mb.

All the best,
amplatfus

Yeah, some services are not starting during the boot, which is wrong, of course. I manually changed the main service script. Download the module again (same link) and give it a try :good:
