i don't think you can use Exec= in a script like that... simply:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh

How to Manually Add a Program to the Menu

I'll bet this would work.

google-chrome.desktop file

Code: Select all

Exec=sh /home/guest/google-chrome.sh
home/guest/google-chrome.sh script

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh
Exec=$BOOTDEV/browser/google-chrome_/chrome/google-chrome %U

SETTINGS ERASE

Hello Elicia. Welcome to Porteus. What s the format of the partition Porteus is installed on? How are you booting Porteus; EFI, BIOS, grub2? Do you have a /changes folder and if so what's in it? Is your pc a 64bit system or a 32bit system? Why a test version of Porteus rather than the 4.0 version?

RING doorbell app for Porteus

Anyone have or know of a file for accessing the RING doorbell's data? There is a RING app for the MAC and for Windows 10 but none that I have come across for Linux and installing Wine to run the Windows one is too much effort.

[Suggestion] man-pages modules for all base modules

:good:

A good suggestion Rava. Normally when I need help with a question or problem about a command I use Google. For offline scenarios your suggestion is perfect. Might even be a quicker solution to problems without using Google. :happy62:
