Cinnamon 4.2.3 for Porteus 5.0rc1

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...

jssouza, awsome job!
Many thanks for xed support cp1251 encoding.

1. gnome-screenshot is not included. I have tried to install it, but I have this output in the terminal

Code: Select all

# gnome-screenshot -i

chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.samba
/etc/rc.d/rc.samba start
smbpasswd -a guest
smbpasswd -e guest
/etc/rc.d/rc.samba restart
and try to share folder via Nemo-share - I have this error:
'net usershare'returned 255: net usershare add: cannot create tmp file /var/lib/samba/usershares/:tmpCK6LY9

Code: Select all

# ls -l /var/lib/samba
drwxr-xr-t 2 root root      3 июн 10 20:13 usershare/
I fix this via

Code: Select all

chown root:sambashare /var/lib/samba/usershare
chmod 775 /var/lib/samba/usershare

Code: Select all

# ls -l /var/lib/samba
drwxrwxr-x 2 root sambashare   4096 авг 10 16:34 usershare/
but I doubt that this is a good solution to the problem.

3. Can you share localization?

Thanks.

Thanks Blaze :)

Gnome screenshot is already installed and looks to be working fine

Code: Select all

[guest:~]$ ls /mnt/live/memory/images/003-cinnamon.xzm/var/lib/pkgtools/packages/gnome-screenshot-3.22.0-x86_64-1jss 
/mnt/live/memory/images/003-cinnamon.xzm/var/lib/pkgtools/packages/gnome-screenshot-3.22.0-x86_64-1jss
Could it be a corrupted download?

Also, samba usershare looks to have proper permissions:

Code: Select all

[root:~]# ls -l /var/lib/samba/
total 1344
-rw------- 1 root root       421888 Aug 10 22:15 account_policy.tdb

jssouza, thanks for localization.

I boot up in Always Fresh mode

Code: Select all

# md5sum $PORTDIR/base/003-cinnamon.xzm
254adb631bc03506385250ed9cfef5ff  /mnt/sdb1/porteus/base/003-cinnamon.xzm
and yep, gnome-screenshot-3.22.0-x86_64-1jss is present and works fine.
It's really strange why he does not work for me in GUI mode. I will check it again.

The usershare folder in AF mode for me is have another permissions:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ ls -l /var/lib/samba
total 0
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 3 May 22 20:54 bind-dns/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 3 May 22 20:54 private/
drwxr-xr-t 2 root root 3 Jun 10 20:13 usershare/
guest@porteus:~$ 
resulting in an error:
Image

Probably, I know thats the problem - I use not latest official Porteus 5.0rc1. Need to check this too. Added to my todo list.

Thanks again.

UPDATE.

Hm :hmmm:, I unpacked 001-core.xzm and checked permissions - all looks good

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/tmp/001-core/var/lib/samba# ls -l
total 0
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root       40 May 22 20:54 bind-dns/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root       40 May 22 20:54 private/
drwxrwxrwt 2 root sambashare 40 Jun  9 12:38 usershare/
root@porteus:/tmp/001-core/var/lib/samba#
Seems time to remove all changes Image

Sorry about my report.

UPDATE.

This day is mystical for me :D
I removed all changes and boot up Porteus in graphical mode and these (all) bugs are repeats.

This list of modules that I use:

Code: Select all

# ls -1 $PORTDIR/{base,modules}
/mnt/sdb1/porteus/base:
000-kernel.xzm
001-core.xzm
002-xorg-porteus5-rc1.1.xzm
003-cinnamon.xzm
05-devel.xzm
06-crippled_sources-5.3-rc3-64bit.xzm

/mnt/sdb1/porteus/modules:
LibreOffice-6.3.0-x86_64-ru-1bl.xzm
firefox-68.0.1-x86_64-ru-1.xzm
ru-cinnamon-locales-5.0-x86_64-2.xzm
UPDATE.

I removed all extra modules
  • LibreOffice-6.3.0-x86_64-ru-1bl.xzm
  • firefox-68.0.1-x86_64-ru-1.xzm
  • ru-cinnamon-locales-5.0-x86_64-2.xzm
and changes.

It did not give me a result, but now I know that I must to search gnome-screenshot in the search bar of Cinnamon start menu on my language.
But earlier I searched this by simply type the word - screenshot and it works for me.

Anyway the issue with bad permissions in graphical mode for usershare folder is still.

Hmm that's strange. Maybe a hint is that the creation date of usershare folder (before starting samba) is May 26.

Code: Select all

[root:/home/guest]# ls -l /var/lib/samba/
total 0
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root       3 May 22 20:54 bind-dns/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root       3 May 22 20:54 private/
drwxrwxrwt 2 root sambashare 3 May 26 13:21 usershare/
Yours shows once Jun 10 and next time Jun 9.
Could it be something coming from rootcopy folder?

jssouza, rootcopy is empty.
I taked original 001-core.xzm and 002-xorg.xzm from Porteus 5.0rc1, remove changes and boot up in GUI mode, but problem with permissions is still.
As you can see in my previous post in AF mode the same story.

Отправлено спустя 52 минуты 57 секунд:
jssouza, Advanced Network Configuration (aka network-manager-applet and nm-connection-editor) does not apply Russian localization
Image Image
but if look at your Cinnamon localization /usr/share/locale/ru/LC_MESSAGES/network-manager-applet.mo is present.
I downloaded ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/slackware/slac ... 6_64-1.txz and replaced /usr/share/locale/ru/LC_MESSAGES/network-manager-applet.mo
but it does give me result, because network-manager-applet.mo is the same.

BTW, your locales does not contain transmission-2.94 locales.

Could you try without the devel and kernel headers as well? I see that you are on a different kernel (hence different 000 from what I have as well).

What permissions of the directory do you have on the 001-core itself? Mine looks to be same what I have on the module that I have on the overlayed system.

Code: Select all

guest:~]$ ls -l /mnt/live/memory/images/001-core.xzm/var/lib/samba/
total 0
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root       3 May 22 20:54 bind-dns/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root       3 May 22 20:54 private/
drwxrwxrwt 2 root sambashare 3 May 26 13:29 usershare/

Thanks Blaze, network-manager-applet.mo - probably because slackware current has moved since rc1 was released.

I use transmission provided by ncmprhnsbl. He might have its locales.

Post#9 by Blaze » 13 Aug 2019, 18:11

jssouza, I installed Xfce 4.14 (build by fulalas) and applyed my old localization for Xfce from Porteus 4.0 and I don't have any issue with localization for Advanced Network Configuration.
My investigation led to the following. I look at my old localization for Xfce and found that in him /usr/share/locale/ru/LC_MESSAGES/nm-applet.mo
but in /network-manager-applet-1.8.22-x86_64-1/usr/share/locale/ru/LC_MESSAGES/network-manager-applet.mo
Ok, I removed nm-applet.mo and got English localization.
Then I renamed network-manager-applet.mo to nm-applet.mo and voila - Advanced Network Configuration in Russian.

Bad news. On my PC permissions for /var/lib/samba/ in Xfce is the same drwxr-xr-t root root :crazy:

Code: Select all

uest@porteus:~$ uname -r

Hi Blaze, as mentioned, I think it is because of old NetworkManager in 001. Cinnamon is very peculiar. It needs the exact girs and typelibs of the Network Manger in 001. Have a feeling if base is updated this problem solves.
Samba .. like you said - :crazy:
It works so good at my end, it is so fluid - right click->share->shared on network.

jss,
Please tell me how permissions to files/directories are created at the first instance and why or how changes are made to them, in a running OS.

I tried Porteus-4.0 with zstd compression after merging all user modules into a single file (kernel+core+xorg+xfce+app). It boots okay,but without wireless network,sound)

I noticed, /usr/lib64/NetworkManager folder permission is owner-guest. Likewise many files/directories permissions were changed. Why and how, I don't know.

How to make correct permissions for all folders/files by a single stroke command? is it feasible?
Linux Kernel-4.4.120-32 bit; Linux kernel-5.2-64 bit.

Permissions are what you have in the xzm module. The original permissions can be checked in the /mnt/live/memory/images. It also depends on which module is loaded first. So if a file exists in both 001 and 002 has different permissions, the permissions in 002 would be the actual permission, as 002 was loaded after 001.
The changes done after the system is loaded in the final overlay across all modules (this is the writeable branch in aufs terminology).
The loading order will be modules, .dat, rootcopy and then the aufs overlayed changes.

Did you extract them as guest? Always extract as root to a non windows filesystem. Other wise file persmissions will be destroyed. Finally what needs guest access can be explicitly set (usually files in /home/guest) using chown -R guest:users to your-extracted-dir/home/guest then create the module.

Blaze, :good: would never have guessed problem was at slackware's end.

What do you mean by "still"? Are you referring to the right click rename problem?

It's more than renaming. I'm experiencing the problem in highlighting text to copy in Firefox and working with text in xed.
