VSIDO Discussions / Re: An Idea
« Last post by jedi on July 29, 2019, 07:37:06 PM »
Hello Gordon, I am not VastOne!  Ceni is installed with VSIDO and must be run as 'root' from the terminal.  It has no graphical user insterface (GUI) and is why you're getting the 'child process' error I would think.  VSIDO was not originally designed for wireless although it has always had the tools to get wireless to work!  ??? 

Depending on the laptop I've used (many) wireless has been available with VSIDO from the beginning.  However, that said, you did sometimes have to jump through some hoops to get there.

After a new install, when the "vsido-welcome" script runs that first time, I simply hit 'Ctrl-T' for a new tab in the terminal, run Ceni as root through to completion of course, then switch back to the "vsido-welcome" script tab and all is well.  ;)

Just as an FYI to anyone.. Ceni must be run as root in a live-CD session too

The root pw on the VSIDO ISO is vsido

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.

Hi VastOne

Just an idea and I have no idea if it is possible to do it.

Once you have done the download and installation would it be possile to add Ceni to the begining of the extra install thing that you have to make sure that you have an internet connection as for some reason or other it never connected during install, worked of the live disk though.

One of the problems that I had and manage to cure after a lot of misshaps was to run Ceni from root terminal to get the internet connection, before running the extra insall thing, trying to run ceni from fluxbox all I kept getting was  " couldn't run child process " , and no idea why that was either.

Hope this makes sense  :D

Hi PackRat

Well I have been trying for ages now to alter my screen resolution with no success at all.

I have tried xrandr and its variations all with no luck.

I have been copying and pasting instruction from the web and nothing seem to work and I don't understand the help screen on xrandr. I either get bad intruction or not found.

Sorry forgot to answer your question C-A-F1, it is bruce login

I have been going through loads of folder / files using root spacefm and not managed to find where the file is that sets the resolution but there must be one somewhere, any ideas.

I am getting totally cheesed of with the box running around the screen and am thinking of moving to another version linux at the moment. which I don't really want to do.

Hi Each

I don't know if this is the same thing but I have just reinstalled VSIDO yet again. To get on the internet I logged into root terminal and entered Ceni and change the settings in there. It worked though unusual for me.

When i tried to run it through fluxbox all I kept getting was couldn't run child process or something on them lines
