Well, since I am still wiak when running as user 'puppy' and still wiak when running as user 'root', the above is all fine, thanks, and not any cause at all for alarm to me.

I'd say just install chromium-browser with Synaptic or apt-get and run with --no-sandbox
Code:
chromium-browser --no-sandbox --disable-infobars


(just tested this and works, chromium-browser version 69)

You can also edit the .desktop launcher in /usr/share/applications and add --no-sandbox --disable-infobars to the Exec= line , then it will run as root from Menu

P.S. @all Let's talk somewhere else about security.

Fred

Fine. Any web site/link could achieve root access/control of your box via a single browser bug and you accept that. Just pointed it out as others might feel differently. Fred wants to consider it no further here so enough said.

Hi Zagreb !

Maybe try this one :

Foxit Reader for Linux:
https://de.ccm.net/download/downloaden-5012-foxit-reader-fuer-linux

Tested in Bionic Dog .It is a deb File .
You can just extract the FoxitReader.deb and start the extracted deb from usr/bin/FoxitReader or install the deb.
But......as far as i remember FoxitReader gave me some Problems when printing Pdf Files .Sometimes it did not print correctly.....same problem occurs for me also with Evince Document Viewer .

Hi zagreb,

Ditto backi. IIRC, under Xenial it will require some qt-libs. ldd will sort out which and PPM will provide them.

It needs some extra packages (libraries) installed, works for me after:
Code:
apt-get install libxslt1.1 liborc-0.4-0


Or try backi's suggestion (I didn't test that)

Fred

OK All I think I've Remedied that issue. Seems I Fixed it once I Created a Save Changes Folder & ReBooted.

But after Upgrading the Kernel & then ReBooting...

... it Stops w/ .... from= cheatcode is incorrect, press eNter to search through all devices.

So this is my menu.lst file

default 2

title XenialDog - porteus-boot Always Fresh

Hi Buddy !
This is really confusing to me ....probably also confusing for yourself .
Are you sure you know what you are doing ?
Which one of the whole Bunch of Entries you are booting with ?
Could be helpful to know .
Can not imagine you are using all those menu.lst Entries .
Why not leave some of them (you are not using) leave them out ......so maybe all this Chaos/Confusion would a little bit decrease .
Why not place your (main) boot Choice at the Top of the List ?
Give us a Chance to help .

P.S Don`t forget ...there is a Difference between changes FOLDER ----and changes FILE .... are you aware about the Differences...... ?
Because i am somehow suspicious about your Statement you "created a changes FOLDER " which is normally not necessary because it will be created automatically if you are using appropriate menu.lst Option .

This is (just) one of your (many ) menu.lst Entries :

title XenialDog - porteus-boot - in RAM save on EXIT changes=/casper/changes.dat file
uuid 925a6463-4817-4542-8c72-2f6bfcd7a83f
kernel /casper/vmlinuz from=/ noauto copy2ram changes=EXIT:/casper/changes.dat
initrd /casper/initrd1.xz

changes=EXIT:/casper/changes.dat
As far as i understood this can not work ......cause--- changes=EXIT:/casper/
it would automatically create a changes FOLDER without Suffix .dat on first boot and it will saves only on Demand (not automatically..........to a changes FOLDER (which is not a changes.dat FILE) without Suffix .dat

but i see a changes.dat (FILE).....
Can not work with changes.dat (FILE) which has to be a changes FOLDER(without Suffix .dat).

Correct me someone if i am wrong .

I am not so fluent in English and all this Linux/technologie Terminology ....so maybe someone with more skills could help me/you out of this misery .

Your menu.lst Entry cited above should look like this to work correctly .

Instead :
title XenialDog - porteus-boot - in RAM save on EXIT changes=/casper/changes.dat file
uuid 925a6463-4817-4542-8c72-2f6bfcd7a83f
kernel /casper/vmlinuz from=/ noauto copy2ram changes=EXIT:/casper/changes.dat
initrd /casper/initrd1.xz

should look like this one:

title XenialDog - porteus-boot - in RAM save on EXIT changes=EXIT:/casper/changes
uuid 925a6463-4817-4542-8c72-2f6bfcd7a83f
kernel /casper/vmlinuz from=/ noauto copy2ram changes=EXIT:/casper/changes
initrd /casper/initrd1.xz

Correct me someone if i am wrong .

P.S:
xxx.dat FILES are only used on NTFS or FAT Partitions ????

Not familiar with Use of xxxx.dat FILES .

OK Backi mate, I Apologize 4 the Confusion & I accept your point, so accordingly I've Edited me menu.lst file as such

# menu.lst produced by grub4dosconfig-v1.7
color white/blue black/cyan white/black cyan/black
timeout 5
default 0

title Angel Student Eco XenialDog - porteus-boot - save on EXIT changes to /mnt/sda1/casper/changes folder
uuid 925a6463-4817-4542-8c72-2f6bfcd7a83f
kernel /casper/vmlinuz from=/ noauto changes=EXIT:/mnt/sda1/casper/
initrd /casper/initrd1.xz

title XenialDog - porteus-boot Always Fresh
uuid 925a6463-4817-4542-8c72-2f6bfcd7a83f
kernel /casper/vmlinuz from=/ nomagic base_only norootcopy
initrd /casper/initrd1.xz

So now I Hope it's Clearer that I'm wanting 2 Save Me Changes 2 a Folder... Please Advise the Appropriate Solution, Thanx 4 your Help Backi

Hi Max, the /mnt/sda1 is not needed, just this will save to changes folder in /casper

Code:
title Angel Student Eco XenialDog - porteus-boot - save on EXIT changes to /casper/ folder
uuid 925a6463-4817-4542-8c72-2f6bfcd7a83f
kernel /casper/vmlinuz from=/ noauto changes=EXIT:/casper/
initrd /casper/initrd1.xz
