Hardware Help & Support / Re: ceni changes
« on: July 18, 2019, 09:39:10 AM »
Ceni has to be run as root, did you try:

Code: [Select]
sudo ceni
when you were in fluxbox - as a regular user, I assume.

In  /etc/lxde there will be the lxde.conf file. Edit the option to auto login there.

When to drop to a console with C-A-F1, what does the prompt say?

For example, mine is:

BANDIT-01 login:

Can you use sudo or su to root while you're in an X-session?

For screen resolution, using xrandr to set screen resolution usually works.

What kind of graphics card? Installing the proprietary drivers may help.

Revisited faux tiling. Fluxbox supports key binding modes like i3, so set up some faux tiling grids:

Entering a mode is like a key chain, ESC exits the mode.

Unfortunately, other key bindings like ALT - Tab window switching is suspended when in a mode, but selecting, moving etc .. with the mouse still appear to work.

Yes guys, Vsido is a darn great recovery live system with all the needed tools already included. Thanks a billion for your brilliant work, VastOne.

One of the main reasons I keep a current VSIDO usb around.

Great that it all worked out for you, Snap.

Good that all the snow has melted. One year when I was in Minnesota, there was snow in the shade until May.

Hurricane season started June 1st, and the thunderstorms have arrived:





been checking out the iosevka font family. Bit condensed for my tastes, but a nice font.

Hi PackRat

Thanks again

Looked in /etc/skel couldn't find anthing to do with aoutlogin but looked in lxdm and found it so auto login now working

Again thanks for all your help  :)

/etc/skel is the location for default configurations that get copied to a new users home directory, as well as some system-wide configurations. Don't need to be editing anything located there.

Check for the /etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf

Since you did a clean install, lxdm should be your display manager. The lightdm files are probably an artifact from previous releases using lightdm; there are some customizations vastone made back in the day so the file is still in /etc/skel.

Autologin - need to change the option in the configuration file for your login manager.

Autologin with lxdm - ArchWiki

Autologin lightdm - ArchWiki

Did you install LightDM? Pretty sure VSIDO made the switch to LXDM -- VSIDO news

So i reverted to an older Disc and managed to load visido but wouln't let me log on and no internet but it let me boot up into windows.

Dual booting? How are you set up one or two harddrives? And what version of Wndows?

Did you make the partitions and format to ext4 with the VSIDO installer, then the install failed? You can try to create the partitions and format from the live session with gparted, then run the installer once you've finished. Accept the pre-formated partitions when you get to that step.
