Guest mode is for "guests", not for me!
:lol: Thank you wread. I didn't know if it was a Cinnamon problem or something else.

I have the Edge module in my Options folder and I use a script to activate it and the libxkbcommon module so after activating the modules I will simply edit the /usr/share/application/microsoft-edge-beta.desktop file and remove the "--no-sandbox" parm.

For any other Porteus 5.0 Cinnamon Guest mode users:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh

# https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=9768
OPTIONAL="/mnt/sda6/porteus5.0/Optional"
MODULE="microsoft-edge*.xzm"
PLUS="libxkbcommon*.xzm"

echo toor | sudo -S activate $OPTIONAL/$PLUS > /dev/null 2>&1 &
sleep 3
sudo -S activate $OPTIONAL/$MODULE > /dev/null 2>&1 &
sleep 2
sudo -S sed -i 's^--no-sandbox^# --no-sandbox^' /usr/share/applications/microsoft-edge-beta.desktop
exit
Added in 3 hours 5 minutes 33 seconds:
If you save changes with a save.dat file note that Edge will add a ~75MB /home/guest/.config/microsoft-edge-beta folder to it. Check your save.dat file's free space before exiting Porteus.

Hi Beny!
thanks for the tip! (su guest).
I just updated chromium to ver 92.0.4515.159 and now I can use the blogger from Google again! No more MS-Edge stuff to consider...

just pointing out: porteus-5.0rc3 has libxkbcommon in 003-xorg, so it(edge) should work in all DEs..
only certain flavours of 4.0 are missing it.

Hi everybody!

For those of you who reacted to the terror message of being root, I have found a hack to eliminate it. with this version there is no warning when you are root!

My only warning is use AF Mode when you are root :D

Enjoy, No fear! B)

just a friendly opinion:

you are using Linux and escaping from the tyranny of Microsoft
but using Microsoft edge ?
seem like you aren't fully benefiting from the freedom of Linux xD

anyway it always comes down to personal preference

True, but your getting your feet wet in a whole new OS that someone got you to try. And the learning process starts. :)
