Sorry don570 for this unintentional linguistic flaw!

What I wanted to say was: thank you for still SHOWING interest in my issue!!

I meanwhile installed Easy Linux on a usb3-stick. Easy Linux so far successfully boots on the desktop-PC as well as on the laptop, yet keyboard-layout settings on the laptop still are a source of problems!

Strange!! As shown in the attachment, no xorg.conf file seems to exist in the q.sfs/etc/X11 folder .... neither after the initial installation nor later, after running several setup options!!

Note to lp-dolittle:

I hope that Barryk is reading this. This is the type of bug that he
can fix.

_____________________________________________________

What I would try to do now is launch the first run window -->
where you select your keyboard, clock type, time zone etc.

Clicking on the 'Setup' icon on the desktop might launch it???
Clicking in the video section might create an new xorg.conf file

@ don570

trying to understand why no xorg.conf file seems to exist in the q.sfs/etc/X11 folder, I did a search with pFind, and found the file listed in the X11 folder!?
As shown in the attachment, rox-filer and pFind do not agree!! The xorg.conf file also does not appear after klicking the rox-filer 'show/hide files' button

strange!

Clicking in the video section for a new resolution or driver might create a new xorg.conf file


or change the keyboard from english to swedish ---> that is supposed
to make changes in xorg.conf

Quote:
q.sfs
This is an approximately 380MB file that contains all of Easy Linux. It is the entire filesystem, which basically means that it has all of the applications, utilities, data and documentation. It packs a lot into a small space -- for example, Easy includes the SeaMonkey browser suite (based on Firefox, but also has WYSIWYG HTML editor, chat, addressbook, mail & newsgroups), and the Libreoffice suite. It also includes drivers for most hardware, such as network, printing, scanning, cameras.


The file /etc/X11/xorg.conf will never be in that q.sfs package!!!

since xorg.conf is generated from scratch at first boot .

You could type in terminal

Code:
geany  /etc/X11/xorg.conf


or if you have booted up without a GUI

Code:
vi -R /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Sorry don570, our messages obviously crossed.

according to my up to now experience, re-running the first-run setup did not help resolve my problems. As for the keyboard-layout, the first-run settings and the settings performed after launching the setup-button do not really correlate.

unfortunately, I continue bothering you

thanks for your patience!!

Interesting exchanges. Just a few considerations:
- BK is a retired gentleman following his personal interests, presently focussed elsewhere
- Easy Linux was announced as a pre-alpha, for interest. This is one for the loyal, not to say talented IT troops.
- For all others, 'Easy' may be a misnomer. Only one other correspondent, apart from YT, was brave enough to report a failed attempt to tangle with the instructions, the great unwashed represent the silent majority. As an aged, scientist with decades of experience in publishing, editing and writing, I was unable to follow them, because, I suspect, I am not in the inner core. Not being qualified to criticise our Dear Leader in his professional field, I would only say that the choice of title could be misleading to the masses.
- Best policy? Wait until we see the outcome of BK's present pre-occupations (cf. blog).

Thank you, Sage, for your comment!

I think I understood the message. Aware of my inability to specifically contribute to the development of Easy Linux, I will switch back from posting to reading! However, having caused a not yet finished discussion, I will try to precisely document my keyboard-layout/Xorg(?) problem, and present the result in the form of another post.

sorry for having interfered!

No apology needed - I am, like many, too anxious to try out every little thing but am utterly devoid of any expertise (perhaps lack of interest would be more exact) in coding despite being a computer user for 53yrs. (yes, long before most folks could spell it). Managed to write a load of 8bit assembler with the kids back in the '80s but it bored me to the proverbial. Since then have been grateful for the crumbs handed down by the professionals, glad when it fits with my needs as a user. Expectations often exceed deliverables!

Blender 2.76 will work in Easy. Newer versions won't because of OpenGL 2.1 requirements.


https://download.blender.org/release/Blender2.76/blender-2.76b-linux-glibc211-x86_64.tar.bz2

I decompress in /opt

It describes how to replace the debian rootfs -- we could pop in a Quirky rootfs!

Yes! Rox would be a much better file manager.

If Nexus 5 and 7 has 2 GB of memory then q.sfs will load in RAM
for extra speed.
