Re: Printing

FYI I tried printing with the HP printer on Porteus 1.2, using various drivers, including Generic. In each case I got the missing banner file error.

Re: Mouse pad option

This is entirely the fault of Razor desktop and not Porteus (or yourself). Are there Razor config files that could be tweaked to resolve the situation(s)? Tweaked by the end user, like me? Windows supports assigning apps to files and allowing the user to change them. (I'll add your name to the cred...

Re: Printing

While my netbook supports 64-bit processing I didn't want my USB stick to be limited to 64-bit machines. Maybe you can try the gutenprint package as it provide driver for most of the printers available. How would I do that? -update- :lol: Well I found one way to bypass the banner error. I switched t...

Re: Mouse pad option

Hi brokenman . I appreciate your help but I don't think I'm ready for Linux. I like Porteus. And have spent more time with it than all the other distros I've tried over the years put together!! I love that it works on my netbook hardware, especially the WiFi NIC. And if it supported my Dell notebook...

Re: Mouse pad option

I'm very close to giving up on this. Starting LXTerminal after every boot to see if the autostarts ran, starting FireFox to find the command to check on syndaemon, having the cursor jumping all over until I manually find the commands and run them in LXTerminal is getting old. Very old. Is there a wa...

Re: Printing

Did you tried the usb install procedure to see if it work at all? I have not. I am sorry for you, I thought the AppSocket could have made the difference. As I mentioned above HP states that the network function does not work under slackware. But there are other distributions that seem to work netwo...
