Confused about packages, mainly

Post#16 by Blaze » 14 May 2023, 19:05

Copy xzm modules to /porteus/modules. In your case, it does not matter how the modules will be loaded before or after. All dependencies will be closed if they are present in the modules. And yes, modules are loaded in alphabetical (numerical) order from A to Z and from 0 to 9.

BTW I like myoffice + onlyoffice (you can find them in my link that I shared before). And sorry about my English :oops:
Linux 6.6.11-porteus #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Sun Jan 14 12:07:37 MSK 2024 x86_64 Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1270 v6 @ 3.80GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

May I ask why would you need scripts if they are loaded in alphanumerical sequence?
Apps I don't use all the time I have in my Optional folder, when I need to use them I activate them plus their dependencies.

My Gimp.sh script:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh

OPTIONAL="/mnt/$DRV/porteus5.0/Optional"

echo toor | sudo -S activate $OPTIONAL/libexiv2*  > /dev/null 2>&1 &
sleep 1
echo toor | sudo -S activate $OPTIONAL/gimp-2.10* > /dev/null 2>&1 &

First of all, thank you all for the assistance.
I converted the packages alright, copied them into /porteus/base and they work. High resolution and sound work right out of the box! Gnome 2 (MATE) is a huge step forward from KDE, thank you from the bottom of my heart for making porteus available with it! A special thanks for X being on 7 and not 1, although not being on 7 might be "thanks to" KDE on Slackware 15...

If I may contribute with a humble suggestion... said suggestion would be to change the root mc skin to something different than the normal one (e.g. nicedark, which also works in console).

I also have a little problem which may not be porteus related... but as porteus kind of solves it, I might as well ask: when I connect a run of the mill Microsoft wireless keyboard+mouse receiver, it gives me around 20 or 30 "Error Activating XKB Configuration."
gave up on this

Also, if I may ask, booting into guest goes though without a password, even though I set one in the porteus config center. I was expecting it to ask for it before showing the desktop. Is there any way to modify this behavior, like by altering a config file? Might be a good idea to have like a checkbox like "ask for password if guest" or something, as otherwise a password on guest is only half-useful :)

Solved (thank you!)

I am also having a tiny problem
solved
edit: I also found out that when I change keyboard layouts (languages)
solved it, seems like some layouts remap function keys themselves...

Thank you for the recommendations, I will try them as I am a sucker for office suites. While still considering Office 2010 / Office for Mac 2011 as the pinnacle of human achievement (but only because it solves the large file size problems Word 2007 & previous versions had...), I would have no trouble placing Apace Openoffice on the same level as Office 2007, Corel Office X7, or even QuarkXPress (which is arguably not a word processor or an office suite but is probably closest in the neighborhood harboring all the cute & skillful girls)

You are talking about removing autologin into guest without password? Verify what is in your
/etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf

modification to get the login screen image with a password prompt
The first two lines of etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf
have to look like this to be prompted for your password
## uncomment and set autologin username to enable autologin
##autologin=guest
to skip password prompt for guest at login::
## uncomment and set autologin username to enable autologin
autologin=guest

Apache openoffice download:
http://www.openoffice.org/download/
once you have the .rpm download use rpm2txz command or simply right click on the file and choose rpm2txz to get a porteus module.

Santé!

Thank you francois, I was googling for solutions and looking at /etc for quite a time (had no idea about lxdm)...
your solution worked great, thank you very much!
