Cinnamon 3.8.6 for Porteus 4 (x86_64)

Here is a place for your projects which are not officially supported by the Porteus Team. For example: your own kernel patched with extra features; desktops not included in the standard ISO like Gnome; base modules that are different than the standard ISO, etc...

Cinnamon 3.8.6 for Porteus 4 (x86_64)

Post#1 by jssouza » 02 Jul 2018, 16:12

Now that Linux Mint 19 final has been released with a stable Cinnamon 3.8, here's Cinnamon 3.8 series for Porteus 4.0:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/95bemolm5 ... nnamon.xzm
md5sum: 496b0de892e99ba382568b30b32123dc

Changes:
- Upgraded Cinnamon modules to 3.8.x series
- Xapps upgraded to 1.8.x series (xed 1.8.2, xreader 1.8.4, xviewer 1.8.1)
- Mozjs upgraded from firefox ESR 38.0 to firefox ESR 52.7.3
- Cinnamon packages now created against the latest gtk3.22
- Slackware current packages have not been upgraded and are still same as that of original cinnamon module shipped with Porteus 4.0. This way, modules created there "should" be compatible with cinnamon 3.8.

For all features and changes of Cinnamon 3.8, please check the Linux Mint blog.

Known issues:
- Rename still does not highlight properly in Nemo with Adwaita - https://github.com/linuxmint/nemo/issues/1333
- The Icon for a USB device does not show properly in Nemo left pane. If anyone can find out what icon this is, it would be great.

Code: Select all

ln -s drive-harddisk-usb-symbolic.svg drive-removable-media-usb-symbolic.svg
in /usr/share/icons/Paper/scalable/devices to display icon for USB devices.

:Bravo: I'll have to see what I can do to use your new version. :happy62: In the pass I've tested 003 modules by adding them to my Modules folder. Porteus 4 Cinnamon got ISOMaster? ;)

It highlights properly with the minwaita font in Porteus 4 Cinnamon.

No, we decided to remove it from all DEs, as archive managers (file roller, engrampa etc) can open isos, and to build Porteus iso itself one can use the make_iso.sh on the top level porteus directory.

You can try neko's iso from above. Just make sure to boot the iso from the above kernel (vmlinuz) so that it matches with the 000-kernel of the iso.

Another method to try that might work: Download the new cinnamon and rename it to say: 003-clove.xzm. Put this in your modules folder and use these cheatcodes while booting: noload=cinnamon load=clove.

It's in the Porteus 3.2.2 Cinnamon system. hmmm maybe can I extract it from there. :hmmm:

I haven't tried it yet but this is basically what I would use:

Code: Select all

submenu     'Porteus 4.0'       --class submenu   --class icon-porteus   --class custom_001  {
#
# start-custom-code
# Set the timeout for the submenu
set timeout=30

# Set the subdefault variable to the submenu entry you prefer
set subdefault=2

set gfxpayload=1024x768

     set linux_folder=/porteus4.0
     if [ -f /boot/syslinux/vmlinuz ]; then linux_folder=""; fi
#    LXQT  MATE  OPENBOX  XFCE
#     set iso=/ISOs/Porteus-CINNAMON-v4.0-x86_64.iso
     set iso=/ISOs/Porteus-CINNAMON-v4.0-x86_64-18.07.02.iso
     set extramods="extramod="

menuentry " Porteus 4.0 ISO - AF" --class slackware   --class icon-porteus  {

     set boot_parms="volume=33 reboot=cold $extramods "

     search -f $iso --set=root
     loopback loop $iso
     linux  (loop)/boot/syslinux/vmlinuz from=$iso $boot_parms
     initrd (loop)/boot/syslinux/initrd.xz
     }

menuentry " Porteus 4.0 ISO - AF+" --class slackware   --class icon-porteus  {

     set boot_parms="volume=33 reboot=cold $extramods$linux_folder/Modules"

     search -f $iso --set=root
     loopback loop $iso
     linux  (loop)/boot/syslinux/vmlinuz from=$iso $boot_parms
     initrd (loop)/boot/syslinux/initrd.xz
     }

Clever. :good:

A bug. :(

If an app displays a link to a webpage clicking on the link brings up the prompt to enter they root password to activate the Browser Selection and Update Tool. This has happened twice with two different apps, aweather being the current one. A link to the author of a newspaper article being the prior one.

Browser module is Firefox ESR 52.9.0.

Poorly worded, sorry. The app is Firefox and it was reading a newspaper article with a link to the author at the bottom of the article.

<-update->

Apparently my problem not yours. When I retested without my saved changes module the newspaper link brings me to a window to choose an email app.

Some setting that I have saved is causing the problem. :wall:

BTW Does the new Cinnamon include ncmprhnsbl's current Browser Selection app?

Thanks ncmprhnsbl. Does that mean I don't need the gtk-browser-update-20180516-noarch-ncm.xzm module?

:hmmm: The only thing is:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ ls -lgh /mnt/sda6/porteus4.0/Modules/g*.xzm
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root 20K May 17 01:37 /mnt/sda6/porteus4.0/Modules/gtk-browser-update-20180516-noarch-ncm.xzm*
guest@porteus:~$ ls -lgh /mnt/sda6/ISOs/Porteus-C*v4.0*
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root 307M Apr 29 14:10 /mnt/sda6/ISOs/Porteus-CINNAMON-v4.0-x86_64.iso*
the Cinnamon ISO is dated April and the Browser module is dated May. :unknown:

<-Edit->

BTW ncm does the Select Browser app set a path or link to the browser when it is used to download a browser?


<-Update->

:o Well, removing the May gtk Browser module cured the problem with email links opening the Select Browser app. :unknown:
