XFCE for x64 bits Porteus 2.1 rewite X files

Post#1 by Falcony » 12 Dec 2013, 10:35


XFCE for x64 bits Porteus 2.1 rewrite X files which responsible for starting X.

So if 003-xfce.xzm goes as last 003-* module

Code: Select all

/mnt/sda3/porteus/base# ls -al 003*
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 75239424 Авг  4 00:00 003-kde.xzm*
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18870272 Авг  8 00:00 003-lxde.xzm*
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 61652992 Авг  8 00:00 003-mate.xzm*
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24539136 Авг  8 00:00 003-xfce.xzm*
then default WM is XFCE always!

Yes, this is how we have set things up in 2.1. Each desktop module has it's own /etc/rc.d/rc.4 file that starts the desktop, so the last module loaded will be the one that is set as the default. keep the desktop module you want as default (for example, lxde) in /porteus base and put the others in /porteus optional. Then, boot with, 'noload=lxde load=xfce' to boot into xfce.
Please take a look at our online documentation, here. Suggestions are welcome!
