Missing library in Remmina module

Post#1 by CaptainKirk » 05 Aug 2022, 15:29

Dear Porteus developers,

At our academic institution we own several HP t5550 thin clients (https://www.parkytowers.me.uk/thin/hp/t5570/index.shtml) with a 64bit VIA processor, 1GB of RAM, and 512MB flash drive. We have previously used them with Porteus 4 and Remmina in order to connect with SSH, RDP and VNC to a Linux server. Now that Porteus 5 is out, we tried to do the same with the x86-64 version. Due to the limited resources of our thin clients, we only tried XFCE, LXQT, LXDE, and Openbox as desktops. All of them installed successfully. However, when we tried the Remmina module, it refused to run in all of them due to a missing library (libdbusmenu-gtk3). Next, we tried the i586 versions with the same desktops. This time, the Remmina module ran only with XFCE, while in the other three desktops the same library is missing.

Our guess is that the mentioned library is not contained in the remmina module (neither x86-64 nor i586) and that it is only contained in the i586 module for XFCE. We also guess that this library is contained with the heavier desktops, but we did not try them. We would be very grateful if we would be able to use remmina, preferably with the x86-64 version of Openbox. Maybe there is a common fix for all the mentioned scenarios.

Greetings from Mexico

quickest fix:

Code: Select all

getpkg libdbusmenu
this will pull libdbusmenu from slackware-15.0 and produce a module..

CaptainKirk welcome on the board.
I tested only in Cinnamon DE. Now I fixed this issue - I added missing libdbusmenu to: Thanks for the report :friends:

I appreciate the early response of both of you. I tried both methods in the four desktops (only for the x86_64 versions), and they worked really well. Thanks. :D :D :D
