You already have that with the "console" container. It starts a terminal, and you can run any app. You can even run multiple apps by appending "&", example "# leafpad &"


When using the console container, Is it possible to specify a different security setting template for an app when run from the command line? ie: something akin to # Ice-Ape -seclevel_3 ?


Thanks for your ongoing improvements with containers. The exploration of different browsers is more comfortable when one can utilize a container to work inside. Having the security options at ones own control seems more 'nix- centric than blindly trusting something like a browser to work well in every possible implementation.


Those security levels are a work-in-progress. For now, best to just accept the default.

Hi Barry!

Found one problem while running 'Buster-2.1.9.1 containerized desk'.

The extra characters '@{[]}..’ don't work - ’ÄÖÜß' do. (f.e. WWW, sakura)

Using easy-2.1.9.1-amd64.img.gz and a BIOS dual core box with German keyboard for testing. (Same problem while running easy-2.1.9-amd64.img.gz) At first run/install I'm using '11' for 'de' keyboard.


I have edited /usr/local/easy_containers/ec-chroot, to copy /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev-puppy.conf into the container. Don't know if that will fix it.

just a note that http://distro.ibiblio.org/easyos/amd64/packages/pet is just giving error 403 and ~/compat gives it on the first attempt but is ok afterwards.

Downloading pyro 1.3 and it's devx now, looking forward to testing sunday when I have my troublesome ssd laptop back, alex is coming across with his too so we can both try it together. His failed with 1.2.9.1 before also and we couldn't work out what was the cause.

Also downloaded the .iso, II have an old cd-drive laptop I can try it in.

Subject description: gparted shows a strange USB layout
 

It's a new USB 3.0 stick out of a blister package with a very strange fat32 starting sector.
Haven't copied anything to it yet only looked into it with gparted.

What are your thoughts about it?
Is it an attempt to kill 'Linux on USB'?

Sorry, it still does not work, but there is a work-around for it.

I've seen it before with efi formatted drives (reserves directory space) and those with a faulty block, if your worried try wipefs (in an earlier message of mine in this thread) and see what it reports. or does.

Barry,

1- what about a non-x container? The equivalent to not running winx to start with, but in a container, any ideas? Thanks.

2- seems to have a kcc - gcc link missing in dev-x.

regards

Prior to the release of Buster 2.2 I created a new USB Flash Drive (Patriot XT 16 GB) installation of Buster 2.1.11. I created it using EasyDD running from installation on micro SD card via Card reader. I did my usual minimal changes to icons and JWM Trays and added inxi.

I have one strange occurrence on this install. I added a jpg image to /usr/share/backgrounds to use as wallpaper. I applied the wallpaper using Qwallpaper. In this installation the wallpaper reverts to the default.jpg wallpaper on reboot or even restart X. This does not occur on my previous installations including previous installations of 2.1.11, where my selected wallpaper is retained.

I will be upgrading this installation to Buster 2.2 today, as this Flash drive will now be my main install of Easy going forward.



Edit: Just checked using one of the other built-in wallpapers. Changed with Qwallpaper, then Restart X. The wallpaper reverted to default.jpg on restart.

Edit 2: Tried the right click on icon method to change wallpaper. It is still reverting back to default. when I change icon, I am checking PuppyPin which is being updated correctly when I make a change. after restart PuppyPin reverts to default.

Edit 3: Just manually upgraded installation to Buster 2.2. This wallpaper issue is no longer occurring. Wallpaper is retained as set prior to reboot or restart X.

Hi Barry,

First, Merry Christmas (and early Happy New Years)!

Hope you're in good health & great spirits this holiday season.

I upgraded my EasyOS USB install from 2.19 (not 2.19.1) straight to this 2.2.

Thanks for 2.2, and I am eager to try the "lockdown" feature. Everything (during the upgrade from 2.19 to 2.2) seemed to go smoothly, replacing vmlinuz, initrd, and easy.sfs, and then clicking on initrd to let it do its thing. All went well.

I then rebooted, and everything seems to work great as well as before except that bluetooth has disappeared out of my tray. So I looked into /root/Startup and was greeted with this (pic below). Does anything look amiss to you? Also, there's two network things competing during startup or am I confused here??

Anyhow, I can't get bluetooth to start no matter what I do. I had to go dig out an old usb wired mouse and wired keyboard so I could type this message.

Much thanks again for 2.2. I'll keep fooling and see if I can get bluetooth working. I am fairly sure I must have did something to make it not work Rolling Eyes

@belham2

I've done similar manual upgrade today , so thought I'd chime in. My startup directory is same as yours, however my bluetooth is still being started normally. Bluetooth keyboard works, but I still can't get bluetooth sound, but that is I believe a known issue.

You are right, it is efi 'reserved directory space'. Using cfdisk shows the real size of it. Had never seen that before on a USB stick.
Applied easydd and Buster-2.2 to it without any problem.
Oh well, this stick is going back to the store. It runs Buster-2.2 in idle mode at 629 MB of used RAM instead of 137 MB like my other Buster-2.2 sticks do.
