Here is my build of Nemesis (LXDE) with the latest ncmprhnsbl base build and Kernel 4.14.13. You can download the latest version.

Addon MPV Media Player
http://www.mediafire.com/file/pivtrtfdo ... 180312.xzm

Here is some bug I want to get fixed.

1. In System Tools This is working File Manager PCManFM (root) but not sure if it is in root.

2. It wouldn't start so here is the ERROR message of the output of lxmusic. It now seem to work now.

3. I like to get the Trash Can fixed I had it fixed in my last release. ncmprhnsbl help me with it but something is not working.

4. F10 key won't let you exit MC

I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

gvfs

looks some ownerships wrong:
chown -R guest:users /home/guest

remove /usr/share/locales (keep for separate module)

Is that ran in guest or root? And do I need to reboot?
chown -R guest:users /home/guest

you need to do it to your extracted module

Code: Select all

#chown -R guest:users /path/to/yourextractedmodule/home/guest

Here is the output.

Code: Select all

[porteus guest]# update-desktop-database
Could not parse file "/usr/share/applications/.#pcmanfm-root.desktop": No such file or directory
[porteus guest]#
"/usr/share/applications/.#pcmanfm-root.desktop" mind look like this "/usr/share/applications/!.#pcmanfm-root.desktop"

If the Trash Can get fixed it will fixed lxmusic and a few more problems. I think that's what happen before.

The only way I can get it to work is in Root Terminal.

Delete this !.#pcmanfm-root.desktop or just this !?

to check file/folder ownership(and permissions):

Code: Select all

ls -al /home/guest

most likely it didn't start because ~/.config was owned by root(and was fixed by chown). lame is not necessary.
your latest build(03-14) is worse, everthing is owned by root...

this is an lxterminal keybind setting> look in the preference settings of lxterminal to turn it off

i see some of the packages(gvfs, udisks2, python, ?) are not listed in /var/lib/pacman/pkgs..
btw, python isn't really necessary for everyday udisks operation afaik it's ony needed for mounting encrypted partitions..
