Re: [NEW]-FluXuan Linux-[RELEASE]

Hi ShorTie and welcome you can install FluXuan with the Refracta installer that you can find in the right-click menu.
I orderd a Raspberry pi on ebay and I am waiting for delivery so I can build a FluXuan version for it I will just need a bit of time , Thank you

Re: [NEW]-FluXuan Linux-[RELEASE]

Refractainstaller has only been used on x86 architectures. I don't know what changes you'd need to make for arm.

If you wanted to use an existing fluxuan iso with the pi-imager, I think you would unpack the iso, then unpack filesystem.squashfs and use that in place of the debootstrapped system. Then make whatever changes you need to make to it.

Edit: Of course, that won't work. Packages are for the wrong arch.

cool deriv-distro indeed!  I love the flux-open/box wm

I'm constantly trying to recycle computers instead of buying a new one and... yes! Devuan is great for "old machines" no matter what flavor you choose.

During pandemic times, with Fluxuan I'm refurbishing a Toshiba Satellite laptop from 2006  \ o /

Re: [NEW]-FluXuan Linux-[RELEASE]

Hello. Need to launch a terminal window at login automatically and run a script in it as root. So far it is in .fluxbox/startup as the following line that prompts for a password to become root. Where is the proper place to put this in fluxuan? So it does not prompt for a password?

sakura -e "bash -c 'trap bash 2; \
   echo Need root permissions.; sudo /home/user/; \
   if [ \\\$? != 0 ]; then echo FAILED, exiting in 10 s; sleep 10; fi' " &

Some of the script follows.

ifconfig $WIFI_DONGLE up $NETWORK_PREFIX.1 netmask
route add -net $NETWORK_PREFIX.0 netmask gw $NETWORK_PREFIX.1
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
hostapd hostapd.conf

Re: [NEW]-FluXuan Linux-[RELEASE]

Hey ulysses_ sorry for the really late reply but as key worker I really have no time to do anything during these harsh times .
As a reply make a bash script put it in /sbin then edit /etc/sudoers and add under %sudo line
%sudo ALL(ALL) NOPASSWD: /sbin/
Make it executable chmod +x
Then just add it in fluxbox startup
exec sudo /sbin/

It will run with no password
