Hi fred !

Hi !
Does anybody know how to auto-mount in Xenial a Drive Partition on boot up ?

Quote:
for auto-mount all (if porteus-boot used) simply leave out the 'noauto' parameter from the kernel (boot) line.


Is O.K. !!


Hi zagreb !

Where to find auto-mount in Xenial Dog ?

Well, that's one way I guess.

I am in Debian Dog 64, but it should be the same. Copy the scripts somewhere convenient. Open the file manager and right click on each file. Choose properties then Permissions. Change execute to "anyone" (see attached). Now you can just click on them to launch Chrome.

I use the Rox desktop, so I can just drag them to the desktop to make a short cut. I think on the other desktops, it is on the right click menu, something like Send To: then Desktop.

Not sure if it's any good (in all aspects), but you can try this SFS:

Hi spandey,

That's because you're running a 'live' system and the package-management doesn't "know" about that. (expects initrd is in /boot)
The initrd which you (frugally) booted from is in the 'casper' folder (e.g. initrd1.xz or initrd.lz, depending on which boot method you used, porteus-boot or casper-boot)

Quote:

No idea what you mean by that, can you clarify?

Quote:

Well, yes, that's something I'd like to change in next releases, it's confusing.
Best to do is to uninstall first "firefox-portable" and then install the official (Ubuntu) Firefox from Synaptic or with apt-get.
(I'm not running XenialDog at the the moment, but from the top of my head I think it should be as I above wrote)

Fred

Hi All,

For info, here's a guide for How Create your own DebianLive from netinstall and also include porteus-boot style

It's for Debian-Jessie but since requested and discussed "Howto implement porteus-boot" in this thread by mikeslr and dancytron I thought mentioning it here.

Fred

Hi Fred!

You've been a busy beaver, I see. Finally, all those separate, disconnected things over the past year when I would ask stupid questions about porteus-booting and such, after reading your "How-to-Thread", I suddenly feel like a member genius...heehee, as I can say: "[i]hey, I walked that walk, I blindly stumbled through that life.....and became a porteus-debian-dog honky-tonky cowboy[/i]" Wink Seriously, though, thanks for putting it all down in one place. Let's me put everything together in my head and make sense of it. It's now bookmarked and will refer back to it when I get confused again. Which we both know should be soon.... Laughing

Good work, my friend, good work.... Wink

Hi Fred,

Thanks for the How To.

Hi belham2,

Just wanted to mention that I enjoy reading your posts. I like how you mix self-deprecating humor while getting to the point on serious topics. The only draw-back is that my mind often works in an odd fashion. Trying to find one of your posts using a Wellminded Search and plugging in your handle and another key word I got nothing. Seems I recalled your handle as being "bedlam. Laughing

PostPosted: Sat 01 Apr 2017, 04:57    Post subject: Using Firefox (with PDF.js) as default pdf viewer
Subject description: online and offline (instead of inadequate old epdfviewer).
 

On the default XenialDog32, epdfviewer is the default pdf reader (and in default Firefox for pdf links clicked). Unfortunately, it isn't very good. It fails to read graphics images in many pdf's. For example I tried looking at tiny core pdf book using default epdfviewer via clicking link in Firefox - most images missing...:

http://tinycorelinux.net/corebook.pdf

Easiest solution is to use firefox itself. Since around version 19, firefox has internal pdf viewer (PDF.js). To activate it just go to Preferences -> Applications. Then click on the line for Portable Document Format (PDF) and use provided drop down arrow to select "Firefox Preview" instead of epdfviewer (default) or whatever.


You can make Firefox default pdf viewer for local pdf files too

You can also then drop local pdf files onto firefox and they will open in firefox. Works well. In fact I've right-clicked pdf file in PCmanFM and chosen to "Open With...": Firefox. That actually makes Firefox the default pdf viewer for all pdf files (online and local). Associating files using PCmanFM "Open With..." automatically modifies the pdf mine-type entry in $HOME/.config/mimeapps.list in XenialDog32. On some other distributions that file can be elsewhere: for example, in $HOME/.local/share/applications.

PDF.js (actually an open source mozilla project) is a pretty good pdf viewer actually. You don't really need epdfviewer at all.

I believe you can also download PDF.js and use it with other java script capable browsers (e.g. Seamonkey and Chrome). For instructions, see:

https://github.com/mozilla/pdf.js

PostPosted: Sat 01 Apr 2017, 10:19    Post subject: Encypted savefile not working? device-mapper, dm-crypt  

Hi,
I am trying to use an encrypted savefile, but I can't get it to load on reboot.

I've used a freshly downloaded .iso, made a frugal install, then on first shut down created an encrypted savefile. On reboot, XenialDog finds the savefile, asks for the password but then starts throwing errors and eventually starts without loading the savefile.

Errors read:
device-mapper: reload ioctl on temporary-cryptsetup-413 failed: invalid argument
Failed to setup dm-crypt key mapping for device /dev/loop2
Check that kernel supports aes-xts-plain64 cipher (check syslog for more info).
Failed to read from key storage


Using an unencypted savefile works just fine.

I appreciate any suggestions. Being an old Puppy Linux fan, XenialDog looks like the thing I've been looking for since Barry stopped working on it.

Cheers,
Max

Putting aside being too big to include in a default Dog, MasterPDFEditor is my preferred choice. Easy to edit/annotate/highlight ...etc.
