Porteus 5.0 RC2 bug reports

The Xdialog and kdialog files appear to be missing since a script I have that uses them doesn't work in 5.0.

And rc.local_shutdown is not displaying savedat file usage when shutting down.

Installed Porteus and can not boot ANYTHING from HDD at all

it does not see ANYTHING from that drive, "it"? What is "it", your boot menu? Your BIOS menu? Your EFI menu? A grub2 menu? How many drives do you have? Is the USB drive still plugged in? What "bootable USB" did you have? Where did you get it? How was it made bootable? I suppose you didn't backup yo...

Thank you. :beer: When do files in /home/guest/.config/autostart folder get executed? The same as /etc/xdg...

TOTAL NEWBIE Limited Tech with Linux - wanting to remove Porteus

I have Windows 10 on a BIOS based Acer netbook, so no EFI is not required. Not sure if GPT partitioning is required.

Porteus 5.0rc2 touchpad autostart changes overridden

For my notebook's touchpad I have a script that customizes some of the settings. In /etc/xdg/autostart I have a desktop file which runs the script. (the same desktop and script files from Porteus 4.0) The script runs because the result of a syndaemon command in it are evident but the synclient setti...
