Some useful settings for Firefox

I rarely use Firefox. The .mozilla folder is located in /home/guest/ I used the Profilemaker https://ffprofile.com/ and I created my profile with the default settings that I want. Result: profile.zip with folder "extensions" and file "prefs.js" What do I have to do now? I have no experience with con...

nmcli command does not work in rc.local

In the meantime, I had an intuitive idea of my own:
I put the command sleep 3 in front of it.
Now it's working.

nmcli command does not work in rc.local

I wrote the following command to the rc.local file: nmcli dev wifi connect xyz password "abc" where xyz is the SSID and abc is the password. However, the command is not executed. Is it ignored? But if I change to the /etc/rc.d/ directory and run the rc.local file, the nmcli command works as expected...

Change from Porteus 4.0 to Porteus 5.0

Thanks ncmprhnsbl, but this is of course very time-consuming if many dependencies are missing. Abiword is also available as an Appimage. But that doesn't work either: ./AbiWord-x86_64.AppImage ** (AbiWord-x86_64.AppImage:1584): WARNING **: 08:12:55.208: Unable to load AbiWord icon /home/bratao/abiwo...

Change from Porteus 4.0 to Porteus 5.0

The change from 4.0 to 5.0 turns out to be time-consuming and difficult. Example: In Porteus 4.0 I like to use 06-abiword.xzm (I don't remember where I got it from) It doesn't work in Porteus 5.0; missing dependencies: libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0, libcroco-0.6.so.3, libjpeg.so.8, ...... What is the easiest ...

Differences in password

Differences in password
Porteus 4.0
sudo: guest
su: toor

Porteus 5.0
sudo: toor
su: toor
Why this difference?
I've used in 4.0 in scripts many times such commands:
echo guest | sudo -S activate ....
and similar commands
All of that has to be changed now

Microsoft Edge for Linux

Hello,
under the hood of the current Edge browser is Chromium.
All Add-ons (Extensions) from the Chrome Web Store can be used

Hi Donald,
Thanks very much.
But how do you come up with such tricks?
