Quote from: vitforlinux on August 10, 2023, 12:59:05 PMYes, no problems, I used MX Linux 21.3, then RhinoLinux Grub (Ubuntu 23.10)... best grub: start Artix and Void.

I've refrained from writing a mini guide on my blog, maybe Vsido isn't for everyone. Many would find that Linux runs badly without realizing that a Sid-based distro has some problems from time to time.

Meh, it is all in the end users hands and I believe our target audience is those that have been around the block a few times .. At the same time we are also aware that any user wanting to use this one (or any distro) can have a forum and several decades of expertise to help with anything. Me personally, I have always believed SID to be maligned as the problem child when in reality it is as good as anything that a good backup can restore

Clearly you don't know the laziness of users accustomed to "either everything works perfectly or it's crap" as I do. When I think of who gave me a headache because the desktop background and the color of the icons had changed, I still feel bad today.

And if it comes to using the terminal it takes Einstein or Iron Man of your choice, and that all this is within the reach of normal people seems impossible to him.

Think I know people who call the technician to push the antivirus button. And I said it all.

The installation of VSIDO is the simplest ever seen, a command in the terminal is enough, provided you indicate the right image and the right partition in which to write it and then a grub, which can be from another distribution already installed, or chroot-rescue-scan from MX Linux, to enter the partition and manage it.

I was thinking about "How to use MX Linux to install VSIDO in 4 steps" It seems to me much easier than it takes to install Debian... yet it succeeds to many.

Hello PackRat and VastOne and hakerdefo and everyone
Anyone do wofi?
I have worked my options to wofi command, wofi -n -i -O alphabetical -S drun,run

The scrot select hole Option is interesting.
Having put it on a Launcher, use got me accustomed to the dual selections.

scrot 1.10-1
has a new default for .png screencapture.
The pmss screenshooter tool uses scrot png default;
so no change is necessary for the pmss script to work, but
the v.1.10 default png is a smaller file than previous default.
Not necessary but optional values, the scrot commands are the Options,
for my options,
for every line that is a scrot command is made the following changes for using pmss scrot options .

where-ever is scrot found in pmss:
Added the --compression value for png as -Z 1
Any -c where there is no -d i took out the -c
i don't believe in -b; took out the -b
In the scrot Entire screen shot
is substituted imlib2_grab just because it can;
i do like the cursor in full desktop shots, so
that imlib will likely become scrot with pointer and delay options.
Looking into the pmss script is really a treat. Thanks.

In /pmss function upload_check, did an option (?)
on line 138
to the end of the line added a "&" character, key ampersand
xdg-open "${NAME}" &


@riV - I've used wofi with wayland compositors. I didn't know it worked with Xorg.

some more fluxbox -
