PorteuX - The Next Experience

Post#61 by rych » 15 Apr 2023, 08:58

beny, Thanks. I think if there is really no OpenBox desktop, then I'll use LXDE -- it's the closest to OpenBox (just a little layer on top of OpenBox?!)

I invite everyone to try PorteuX distro. It's inspired by Slax and Porteus but with heaps of improvements, including a nice app store where you can download not just browsers but also Steam, VirtualBox, Nvidia drivers, multilib lite, messengers, emulators, etc. Performance has been improved and many issues have been fixed.

It's also possible to use Porteus 5 desktop environments modules (compatibility module is required and available on the Github page).
I went wid the porteux-v0.3-kde-5.23.5-stable-x86_64.iso for testingโ€”booted it on test machine using your EFI System method. ๐Ÿ‘

May try your suggestion about "Porteus 5 desktop environments modules" working since I prefer Cinnamonโ€”tho KDE is a must learn DE, IMHO. ๐Ÿ™‚

Still in early testing (less than 10-min), but like Porteus 5.0 Cinnamon I couldn't get it to boot on a converted Chromebook that is running Fedora 38 Cinnamon SPIN right now. That durn converted Chromebook doesn't like most Linux OSes. ;) No biggie tho...

Impressive!!!

Used 16 GB SanDisk USBs for my testsโ€”33.00 MiB Fat32 & 14.29 GiB ext4 partitions, and then just copied appropriate folders to each partition. Edited the porteux.cfg INITRD /boot/syslinux/initrd.zst line by adding login=root to it โ€“ and easily booted each time.

I've gone thru 4-5 different ISOs and have settled on the porteux-v0.3-gnome-44.0-current-x86_64 version โ€” wid Dash to Panel & ARC Menu extensions added was able to get the Cinnamon 'Feel' & look I like. ๐Ÿ‘ Tried a Cinnamon module on MATE, but couldn't get it to work โ€“ seems I was supposed to add it during bootup (??) which is beyond my expertise. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Some minor issues on all 3 DEs I tested (KDE, MATE & Gnome) but nothing major โ€“ it's new so some issues are expected. Issues had mainly showed up after tinkering on my part. ๐Ÿ˜

Gotta love the App Store! Firefox & the NVIDIA driver 525.85.05 modules were easily installed 'n worked perfectly. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘

Missed 'n Porteus Screenshot app โ€“ don't really care for the 'Take a Screenshot' (PrtSc) option which I accidentally discovered when searching for an app. Probably one available for installing, but I haven't got around to it yet.

Very impressive after just two days of testing!!!

I boot with Cinnamon. :) Add the 009-porteus5-compatibility-stable.xzm and the cinnamon.xzm to the /porteux/modules folder and a noload=mate;kde;gnome to the Append line.

Yeah, it has always worked better for me on the INITRD lineโ€”wid Porteus, i.e. seemed more steady 'n reliable. ๐Ÿค”

OK โ€“ Thanks, and I'll give that "009-porteus5-compatibility-stable.xzm and the cinnamon.xzm" a shot, since I really like the Cinnamon DE! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘

Add whatever other DEs you are testing to the noload= cheatcode to use Cinnamon with them.

Another cheatcode I like to use is reboot=cold.

I've never had a problem with the Append line in a porteus.cfg file.

:Yahoo!: Yeah, that worked!!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘ Tried it on the Gnome 44 that was already setup, but that didn't workโ€”for whatever reason; however, clean install worked perfectly. Also had added the login=root to the APPEND line this time.

Same desktop as Porteus 5 Cinnamon, but it's PorteuX 0.3 โ€“ will have to change that wallpaper... ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks Ed_P!!!!!!

This is a work in progress printing module for PorteuX stable (not current!):

https://we.tl/t-Nhe3Z01mzw

It should work without downloading gtk+3.

Could guys test it and report your impressions? Thanks!

EDIT: and here is the module for current: https://we.tl/t-K4blZOIQlF

Wow! There seems to be a big porteus party here. Would porteux be to porteus, what slax-remix was to slax? :D

I never found a statement on what the purpose of PorteuX is. Is it PorteuS NG (the next generation) or something else?

I want to use it in a script.
Thanks
